ITINERARY IDEA

Day 1 - 3: Amboseli National Park

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

The landscape of Amboseli is dominated by the snow cap of Mount Kilimanjaro, open plains, acacia woodland, swamps and the massif of Ol Doinyo Orok. Renowned for its excellent Masaai giraffe, elephant, lion and cheetah viewing and not surprisingly it is one of Kenya most popular parks. The birding is excellent especially near the lakes and swamps.

The park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species. Other attraction of the park includes opportunities to meet the Maasai people and also offers spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.

Day 4 - 5: Lake Nakuru & Lake Naivasha

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

Lake Naivasha is the highest of the Rift Valley Lakes and despite having no outlet is one of only two Rift Valley freshwater lakes. The beautiful lake is fringed by papyrus and acacia trees and supports a vast array of bird species. Although it is more than 10kms across it is very shallow and its area varies considerably with the rainfall, so much so that in the early 1900s it totally dried up.

Day 6 - 9: Masai Mara

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park. The image of acacia trees on an endless grass plain epitomises Africa for many, and then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further.

The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara is the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. But that is not where the game viewing ends; large prides of lions, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles and eland to mention but a few. Aside from traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential and you can even do a horseback safari.

ABOUT KENYA

Kenya is one of the world’s great tourism destinations, known for its remarkable diversity of landscapes, wildlife and cultures. Kenya is Africa’s original safari destination, attracting explorers, adventurers and travellers for centuries. It is home of Africa’s famous “Big Five” (lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and buffalo) and it is one of the best places to see these five magnificent species in their natural environment.

Kenya also has an incredible range of wild habitats, each one with its own unique range of species. Open savannah, deep forest, freshwater lakes, alpine meadows, coral reefs, caves, beaches, river deltas and more. A safari in Kenya means more than just seeing animals. This is a chance for you to immerse yourself in a wild world where the fascinating natural behaviour and interaction between species will keep you enthralled.

WHERE TO GO AND WHEN

Kenya has a distinct rainy season which can have an impact on any safari and means that many camps and lodges close as Parks and Reserves become inaccessible

There are lighter rains in Nov and Dec but the longer hard rains are from Mar–Jun peaking in Apr and May. Visitors will be rewarded with much lower visitor numbers, lots of young animals and wild flowers

WHAT TO DO

Safari is the first obvious reason for going to Kenya and there are many options to offer a great variety. Every type of safari with the exception of elephant back are available and even then there are camel safaris

There are miles of golden sands which line the coast and offer a very appealing extension to a safari

Golf, fishing, sailing and water sports abound
