Day 2: Samburu National Park : FB
Depart after breakfast and drive to Kenya's rugged northeastern region, home of the colourful Samburu tribe. You will cross the equator en route. Rugged and remote, this wildlife reserve provides some of the best and most colourful game viewing in the country. Arrive at the lodge in time for lunch followed by time to relax. Enjoy an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge at sunset.
DAY 3: Samburu National Park: FB
Enjoy early morning and afternoon game drives exploring this arid wilderness while photographing wildlife. In as much as the wildlife is diverse, you never get the feeling of an over crowded atmosphere in the Samburu.
All meals will be provided at the lodge.
DAY 4: Aberdares National Park : FB
Go for an early morning game drive in the reserve returning to the lodge for a late breakfast and checkout. Then drive to Aberdares National Park, situated in the shadow of Mt Kenya, Kenya's highest mountain.
Here, you will be staying at the world renowned Tree Tops Lodge.
DAY 5: Lake Nakuru National Park : FB
Depart after breakfast and drive to Lake Nakuru National Park, famous as the home to thousands of lesser and greater flamingo. This park also provides a sanctuary for Rothschild giraffe, rhino and leopard.
While in Nakuru, you will stay at the very cosy Lake Nakuru Lodge.
DAY 6: Masai Mara National Park : FB
Depart after breakfast and drive via Narok to the Masai Mara National Reserve offering wonderful scenery and plenty of game. It is perhaps the only region in Kenya where the visitor may see animals in the same super-abundance as existed a century ago. You will arrive at your lodge in time for a late lunch. Thereafter, you have the option of going for a late afternoon game drive.
DAY 7: Masai Mara National Park :FB
Today you may enjoy a full day of game drives with a picnic lunch in the wild, with superb photographic opportunities to capture the stately black-maned lion, elephant and various plains game.
You will also have an opportunity to go on a spectacular optional balloon ride (paid separately) across the Masai Mara. The Balloon Safari begins in the pre-dawn hours. The magnificent view of the park is thrilling. Towards the end of the safari, you rise to a height of 1500 feet for a panoramic view of the twisting Mara River and the savannah below. After an hour or so in the air, your safari finishes with a flourish: a champagne breakfast in the bush, cooked on the balloon's burners.
DAY 8: Day of Departure:
Depart after breakfast and drive to Nairobi, Kenya's colourful capital city (5-hour drive). On arrival you will be dropped off at a city centre hotel or Jomo Kenyatta International airport for your departure flight.
