Day 1

UK to Nairobi

Welcome to Kenya. Upon arrival in Nairobi, a local representative will be waiting at the airport to transfer you to your comfortable hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax ahead of your safari adventure. Overnight at Eka Hotel (or similar).

Day 2

Nairobi to Lake Nakuru

After breakfast, drive for 2-hours to Lake Nakuru in the famous Great Rift Valley. Lake Nakuru National Park is a haven for birdlife, with over 400 colourful African species found here, including spoonbills, storks and pelicans. But perhaps the most famous visitors are the flocks of pink flamingos who gather here attracted by the blue-green algae that they feed on. On arrival there will be time for a relaxed lunch, before heading out on an afternoon game drive to explore the incredible surroundings. Overnight at Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge (or similar).

Day 3

Lake Nakuru

Spend a second day exploring Lake Nakuru National Park. As well as an opportunity for more bird spotting, the park also provides habitat for lion, leopard, buffalo and Rothschild giraffe, as well as white rhino and the endangered black rhino. Returning from your game drive, there’ll be time to relax and enjoy the panoramic lake views from the lodge. Overnight at Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge (or similar).

Day 4

Lake Nakuru to Maasai Mara

After an early breakfast, drive for 7-hours to the most famous wildlife reserve in the world – the incredible Maasai Mara. Home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the world, the endless wide-open savannah and rolling grasslands truly epitomise Kenya. On arrival, there’ll be time to relax at your luxury lodge and enjoy the wildlife and uninterrupted views from the large viewing deck. Overnight at Mara Engai Lodge (or similar).

Day 5

Maasai Mara

Prepare yourself for an unforgettable day, beginning with a highly recommended optional hot air balloon safari.

The reserve offers fantastic chances of seeing the Big Five and other wildlife including giraffe, hyena and impala. Look out for lions basking in the shade or an elusive solo leopard - there are few places better for viewing big cats. Overnight at Mara Engai Lodge (or similar).
