8 DAY DISCOVER KENYA’S BEST PARKS

Starting from/returning to Diani Beach area resorts. Your driver-guide will pick you up from your hotel.

Day 1: Nairobi – Tsavo East.

Your African Expert Safaris driver guide will pick you up from your Diani Beach resort and proceed down the Mombasa-Nairobi highway on your way to Kenya’s largest game reserve, Tsavo East National Park in no time, you will pass through the Tsavo gate and take in the park’s unmistakable rugged landscape. Tsavo East is home to over 700 of the famous Tsavo lions, renowned in the past as fierce predators. Here, too, on your first game drives, you’ll be looking for buffalo, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, zebra, gazelle, and dozens of more species. Tonight, you will stay in the park at the lodge or tented camp of your choice for Dinner and Overnight.

Day 2: Tsavo East and Amboseli National Parks.

Today you will be up with the sun to catch the first stirrings of nature with an early morning game drive. Then you will exit Tsavo on the way to Amboseli National Park, which lies in the shadow of towering Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Though not nearly as expansive as Tsavo, Amboseli’s smaller size provides many opportunities to view its abundant game – especially its elephants. In fact, the park is known as perhaps the best spot in Africa for spotting free-ranging elephants. There’s also plenty of other wildlife here as well as hundreds of bird species. And of course, great views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Dinner and overnight at your accommodation.

Day 3: Amboseli and Lake Naivasha National Parks.

Today you will have another early morning which will bring us an African sunrise and possibly views of Kilimanjaro’s snow-capped peak if the clouds break. After breakfast we’ll depart Amboseli with a final game drive to Lake Naivasha. Later you will head through the great Rift Valley and stop in the capital of Nairobi for lunch before proceeding on to Lake Naivasha. The lake here is the Rift Valley’s highest and ringed with cacti and olive trees. We’ll take a water safari and look for giraffe and zebra along the shore as we glide past neighboring hippos in the lake. Dinner and overnight at your accommodation.

Day 4: Lake Naivasha, Hell’s Gate and Lake Nakuru

From Lake Naivasha it’s a quick hop to Hell’s gate National Park, where you will take a bicycle safari riding past zebras, giraffes, impalas and buffalo, amongst the imposing escarpments. And then we’ll enjoy a bonus walking safari at nearby Crescent Island. From there it’s only a one-hour drive to Lake Nakuru National Park to see the beauty of an acacia forest, plus Rothschild’s giraffes, rhinos, lions, warthogs and even leopards. The park is also known for its birdlife including pelicans and flamingos. Dinner and overnight at your accommodation.

Day 5: Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara National Parks.

Today you will complete your Lake Nakuru experience with an early morning game drive as we exit the park. For we are now making tracks to perhaps the most famous park in Kenya – Masai Mara National Reserve. The Mara is a picture postcard of Africa with its rolling savannahs, acacia trees and endless herds of migrating zebras and wildebeests. Here there are boundless populations of lions, leopards, cheetahs, and gazelle, plus hyena, jackal, buffalo and more. You will arrive here in time for some afternoon game drives just to whet your appetite, for this is the beginning of our 3-day span in the park. Dinner and overnight at your accommodation.

Day 6: Masai Mara National Reserve.

This will be an exciting day of unlimited game drives through the grasslands of the Mara. Africa’s “Big Five” are a feature of the park and we’ll be on the lookout for them. We will lunch by the Mara River and during the migration season (July – October) witness the crossing of thousands of Zebra and Wildebeests and the crocodiles waiting for them in the murky waters. This is one of the greatest experience and once in a life time experience. Dinner and overnight at your accommodation.

Day 7: Masai Mara National Reserve Balloon Safari.

Today you will have an early wake up and proceed for an exciting moment with balloon Safari. Our custom 4×4 safari vehicles will pick you from your camp or lodge between 04:00-05:30 am and drive you to the launch site, to arrive by 06:00 am. Depending on the weather conditions, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while you watch the balloons being prepared for take-off. Your pilot will give a safety briefing as well as explain what you can expect during the flight, a lot will be seen during this amazing balloon experience. The balloon will land by 7:30 am where your driver guide will transfer you back to your accommodation for breakfast, a freshen up and relax at your room balcony as you flashback the safari experiences. The whole afternoon is for you to relax or you may decide to go for an extra cost Masai Mara cultural village for another unique experience as usual your guide is available for your transfer.

Day 8: Masai Mara National Reseve – Nairobi.

Today you will be up with the wildlife for a pre-breakfast game drive to get in maximum viewing time. Then, after breakfast, you will exit the park for one final game drive and then we’re off to Nairobi. In Nairobi, have your choice of an evening flight to Mombasa or take a modern train back to the coast. You can wash off the “safari dust” back at your resort as you recall your adventures in Kenya’s greatest parks. End of your exciting safari in Kenya.
