Game Drive at Amboseli National Park Kenya

After a leisurely breakfast, we go on morning and afternoon game drives to explore the park. We have plenty of time to unwind at the Amboseli Serena lodge, which overlooks the spectacular Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Amboseli National Park is one of Kenya’s most prominent wildlife refuges. It is located near the Kenya-Tanzania border. The park is located at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain (5,896m), whose snow-capped top provides a spectacular perspective on clear days. Amboseli National Park is known as “The Home of Elephants” because it is home to some of the largest elephant herds in the world. There are also large herds of Zebras, Wildebeests, Giraffes, Buffalos, Hippos, and Antelopes in the Game Park.

The Aberdare mountain ranges are home to around 40 kinds of wildlife, which can be found lurking in the densely forested slopes and upper moor regions. The Aberdares is well-known for its rhino sanctuary, but keep a look out for the elusive uncommon bongo, which can be found in the upper bamboo zone and hypericum scrub.

Meals: Breakfast. Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we continue north across the Equator to the Northern Frontier. We arrive in time for lunch, then go on an afternoon game drive before returning for a sundowner and dinner at the Samburu Ashnil Lodge or Samburu Lodge. Meals are provided on a full board basis.

Samburu is a lava plain with a varied scenery of thorn scrub, red mud, dried river beds, shattered volcanic rock, steep hills, and rocky outcroppings. After the Mara, this reserve is quickly becoming one of Kenya’s most admired locations. The sight of the unusually branched doum palms and thorn plants lends an interesting appearance to the region.

The entire day will be spent resting and slowly touring Samburu National Reserve during morning and afternoon game drives. You can pay extra to participate in some of the activities offered at the lodges and to visit Samburu villages.

The light and great openness create a solitary panoramic beauty, while the constant water supply works as a magnet for the abundant species present here. The region is home to the rare Grevy’s zebra, which has big furry ears, gerenuk antelopes, which stand on their hind legs to graze, Somali ostriches, which have distinguishing blue legs, and the shy Oryx. Elephant and crocodile sightings are guaranteed, as is fantastic bird watching with various weaverbird species and the martial eagle. Leopard sightings are also a unique aspect of this location.

Day 7: Mount Kenya/ Sweet Waters

We do one last early morning game drive in the Samburu reserve before departing for the Mt. Kenya region. Arrival to the resort in time for you to take advantage of the lodge’s amenities. Explore Mount Kenya National Park or take a tour to the nearby Sweetwaters Reserve, which is home to Chimpanzees.

Sweetwater’s is Kenya’s sole rehabilitation center for these commonly abused chimps, with two groups living in an environment as close to their native habitat as possible. The site also serves as a breeding ground for black rhinos.

Meals: Breakfast. Lunch, Dinner

Day 8: Lake Baringo via Lake Bogoria

LAKE BOGORIA | Millions of Flamingos – A Sea of Pink (ULTIMATE KENYA SAFARI)

Drive down through the Nyahururu Falls to the shallow soda Lake Bogoria and then to the magnificent Lake Baringo, where you can enjoy an evening bird walk. Dinner and an overnight stay at the Lake Baringo Lodge.

The Nyahururu Falls, also known as Thomson Falls, are created by the waters of the Ewaso Narok River and plummet over 72m into a gap, splashing the dark forest below. They were named after Joseph Thomson, who trekked from Mombasa to Lake Victoria in the early 1880s.

The primary attractions in the beautiful Lake Bogoria are hot springs and geysers. With a nomad population of up to two million birds, the lake has been dubbed “the new home of the flamingo.” Kesubo marsh, located north of the park, is home to more than 200 different bird species.

Lake Baringo is the most northern of Kenya’s tiny Rift Valley lakes, furrowed with papyrus and densely forested with acacia. Hippos, crocodiles, and monitor lizards can all be viewed from the shore, as can a spectacular show of water birds. Kenya’s bird viewing center, with over 1200 different species native to the country and over 450 observed here. A birdwatcher’s paradise, but be warned: this is malaria territory, so bring plenty of mosquito protection.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9: Nakuru National Park

We take a boat ride in the morning in quest of hippopotamus, crocodiles, and fish eagles. Following a delicious lunch, we will go to Lake Nakuru National Park for an afternoon game drive.

Nakuru National Park is 180 square kilometers in size and is home to warthogs, waterbucks, buffaloes, reedbucks, and the rare leopard. White and black rhinos were introduced to the park several years ago, and white rhinos can be found towards the park’s southern end. The park has also maintained its status as an ornithologist’s paradise, with over 400 bird species found here. We spend the night at the Kembu campsite, which is located just outside of town.

Day 10: Masai Mara National Reserve

We leave early in the morning for Masai Mara National Reserve via the Great Rift Valley, arriving in time for lunch at the lodge. We then go on an afternoon wildlife drive before returning to the lodge for a fantastic sundowner and dinner at Keekorok Lodge or Masai Mara Sarova Luxury tented camp.

The Mara reserve has 1510 square kilometers of spectacular wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woods, and one look is enough to see why it is so appealing; it is classic savannah, with a plethora of amazing fauna.

There is a lot of wildlife in the Mara, including Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, and wildebeests. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos are also plentiful. Lions are also frequently seen either sunbathing after a large meal or scouting the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are more difficult to spot, although they are still rather abundant.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 11-12: Masai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara Safari

The next two days will be spent viewing game in the early morning and late evening hours, as these are the times when we have the best prospects of spotting animals. The ultimate action in this area is without a doubt the yearly wildebeest exodus in July and August, when millions of these grass eaters migrate north from the Serengeti in search of greener pastures before returning south in October. A hot air balloon safari and a cultural tour to Maasai settlements for youngsters to learn about Maasai culture and traditional dances can be arranged.

You may also choose to participate in some of the lodge’s activities. On clear days, the Masai Mara offers spectacular orange-tinged sunsets, which you will want to record while sipping a sundowner back at the Keekorok Lodge or Masai Mara Sarova Luxury tented camp.
