Trip duration

7 days/ 6 nights

 

DAY 1 AND 2: SAMBURU AND BUFFALO SPRINGS NATIONAL RESERVES

The Best of Kenya Wildlife Safari starts in Nairobi, Kenya’s economic capital; often regarded as the wildlife capital. The city has a national park at its edge, making it one of the most special conservation cities globally.

You will then head north, crossing the Equator to Samburu. This spectacular reserve hosts some very unique wildlife such as the Beisa Oryx, Gerenuk, Grevy’s Zebra and Reticulated Giraffe; most of which are not easy to find south of the Equator. We shall also explore the neighbouring Buffalo Springs National Reserve. The mighty Ewaso Ng’iro North River meanders its way across these reserves giving life to this beautiful land. Local Doum Palms tangle their branches in the sky as if waving at the people, and provide the landscape with a beautiful touch. Enjoy tracking the local elephants and other members of the Big 5 on your game drives.

Nights in Samburu.

DAY 3: MT. KENYA NATIONAL PARK

We shall then continue on our Best of Kenya Wildlife Safari and head to the amazing Mt. Kenya. We shall spend the time at a scenic lodge inside the forest. You will watch shy animals emerge from the forest to come drink and feed at the waterhole in front of the lodge.

Here you shall also enjoy a walk around the highland forest.


Night in Mt. Kenya.

DAY 4: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK

We shall continue on our Best of Kenya Wildlife Safari to the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. The park is known for the mighty Lake Nakuru, a soda lake at the heart of the great ecosystem. This park is also a great sanctuary for rhinos and these may be encountered on our game drives. The local birds make the park special too, and it is often referred as the birdwatcher’s paradise. Enjoy the large herds of herbivores, especially the local Cape Buffaloes among many other spectacular wildlife species. The landscapes here are very rewarding as well.

Night in Nakuru.

DAY 5 AND 6: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

From Lake Nakuru, we shall head to the Masai Mara. Renowned for the annual wildebeest migration, which is often regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, Masai Mara National Reserve is the crown of our Best of Kenya Wildlife Safari experience. Considered the ultimate wildlife haven in Kenya, this reserve has a lot to offer. From all members of the Big 5 to the numerous herbivores grazing the landscape in huge herds, this place is indeed amazing. You will spend the next days learning about this magical destination with our guides. Enjoy interesting game drives as you track the Big 5, the Big Cats- Lion, Cheetah and Leopard and much more.

There will be an optional Maasai Village visit on one morning- this is one of Africa’s best preserved cultures and you will have a chance to learn about their way of life.

Nights in Mara.

DAY 7: MASAI MARA TO NAIROBI

On this day, we shall enjoy an early morning game drive in the Mara. We shall then head to Nairobi, cruising across the Rift Valley. We shall have dinner in Nairobi at a local restaurant, allowing you to sample some of the best local dishes. Later, we head to the airport; marking the end to our lovely Best of Kenya Wildlife Safari.
