Full Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Majestic Masai Mara

Begin your safari adventure with a scenic drive from Nairobi to the fabled Masai Mara National Reserve. As you arrive at your campsite, nestled within the reserve's boundaries, the spirit of the African wilderness welcomes you. The afternoon is yours to dive into the first game drive, seeking out lions, elephants, and perhaps a glimpse of the elusive leopard as the sun begins to dip below the horizon.

Day 2: Exploring Masai Mara

Your second day is dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of the Masai Mara. With a full day of game drives, you'll have plenty of opportunities to witness the rich tapestry of wildlife that calls this corner of Kenya home. Watch in awe as the drama of nature unfolds, from the thundering hooves of the wildebeest to the stealthy prowl of the cheetah across the endless plains.

Day 3: The Avian Haven of Lake Nakuru

On day three, journey towards the alkaline shores of Lake Nakuru National Park, a sanctuary for bird enthusiasts and home to a stunning array of wildlife. The park's diverse ecosystem, from its forests to the waters teeming with flamingos, offers spectacular game viewing opportunities. As night falls, you'll camp within the park's borders, enveloped by the nocturnal sounds of the African bush.

Day 4: Serene Lake Naivasha

The following day, you'll make your way to the tranquil Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake in the Great Rift Valley adorned with a backdrop of the area's distinctive acacia trees. Here, relaxation is key, and you have the option to partake in additional activities like a boat ride or a guided walk on Crescent Island, each offering a unique perspective of the lake's serene environment.

Day 5: Lake Naivasha to Hell's Gate and Nairobi

On the final day of your safari commence your day with a visit to Hell's Gate National Park, a geological marvel known for its towering cliffs and geothermal features.
