Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi – Amboseli National Park

When you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be received by our representative and transferred to Amboseli National Park, which is famous for its large game and scenic splendor, with Mt. Kilimanjaro dominating the landscape. It stands out due to its dry and dusty look, which can be linked to the volcanic ash that spewed from Mt Kilimanjaro when it last erupted. Despite its look, Kilimanjaro’s melted snow provides a constant supply of water that is filtered by volcanic rocks. These streams flow underground, creating lush green landscapes, and culminate in the park at two clean water springs.

You arrive in time for lunch at the lodge before embarking on an afternoon wildlife viewing drive till dusk.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

There are around 400 bird species, including bee-eaters, kingfishers, African fish eagles, martial eagles, and pygmy falcons. Visitors primarily come to see the vast herds of elephants.

Day 3: Amboseli – Aberdare

After breakfast, depart for the verdant foothills of the Aberdares highlands. You arrive at the Aberdares Country Club for a late lunch, an opulent baronial-style country home set amid sweeping excellently landscaped gardens. Later, transfer to Aberdares National Park via the Ark gate. The Ark provides the first opportunity for wildlife observation in a very unique setting. The Ark was created to imitate the biblical Ark, and you will be able to see animals as they come to drink along a natural waterhole while staying overnight. Elephants, rhinos, bongos (rare nocturnal antelopes with black on tan stripes), and other species may be seen here.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Aberdares – Masai Mara

After breakfast, drive to the world-famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve, which translates to “spotted plains” in Maa. This has the highest density of large mammals and is often regarded as Africa‘s ultimate wildlife reserve. Because it borders Tanzania‘s Serengeti, the park has become famed for its yearly migration of wildebeest.

Check-in upon arrival, followed by lunch, and then embark on an evening game viewing drive in this stunning region of breathtaking scenery, endless plains, and the most extensive array of species remaining anywhere in the world. The environment consists of sweeping savannahs interspersed with sparse bushes and bush thickets.
