This tour takes you to some of the most captivating attractions in the East African region. Begin by getting acquainted with Kenya’s capital with one night in Nairobi before heading to the famed Maasai Mara’s game-filled plains.

Trip Itenerary

  • Day 1: Welcome to Nairobi Kenya

    Nairobi, Kenya's capital city, serves as the country's entry point. As the country's transportation hub, the city's airports, roads, trains, and bus stations transport visitors to the aquamarine waters of the coastline, the vast Rift Valley Lake region, and wide open savannahs of the Maasai Mara or the verdant landscapes of the central highlands. The Kenyan capital, on the other hand, is well worth exploring on its own. On a clear day, the continent's largest and second-largest mountains, Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya, are visible from the city.

  • Day 2 - 3: Maasai Mara National Park

    The Maasai Mara National Reserve is without a doubt Kenya's most famous and revered reserve. Its vast size (it extends to and eventually joins Tanzania's Serengeti National Park) and strict anti-poaching systems have made it famous for its lion, cheetah, and leopard populations. It is also known for being a stopover point for the Great Wildebeest Migration.

  • Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park

    Lake Nakuru, one of the Rift Valley soda lakes, can appear pink at times as thousands upon thousands of flamingos forage for succulent treats and black and white rhinos plod along the shoreline. Keep an eye out for large pythons that have been known to slink across the road on their way to and from the lake's surrounding woodlands. Lake Nakuru National Park is best explored by safari vehicle on daily drives, where visitors can search the savannah for signs of life. The lion, cheetah, and leopard, Nakuru's resident big cats, are known to keep an ever-watchful eye on the shoreline for potential meals, while the gangly giraffes bring a smile to those who observe their awkward gait as they bow for a drink by the water's edge. Lake Nakuru is located within Lake Nakuru National Park and is easily accessible as a day trip from Nairobi. This is unquestionably one of the best places to see flamingos, whose sheer numbers obscure the true color of the lake, as well as the shy leopard, which has recently been spotted more frequently. Other animals waiting to be seen in the park include buffalo, zebra, hippopotamus, and jackal.

  • Day 5 - 6: Amboseli

    The 40,000ha Amboseli National Park is defined by arid land that stretches as far as the eye can see and vibrant oases of swamps teeming with life. Mount Kilimanjaro's expansive base culminates in its snow-covered peaks seen rising from the earth across the border in the distance. The bare vegetation of the dry months provides an ideal environment for relatively unobstructed views of the park's inhabitants. Guests can stay in any of Amboseli's luxury lodges while exploring the park's tracks that stretch across the plains. While the park is home to a variety of large game and over 300 bird species, getting close to herds of free-roaming elephants is Amboseli's claim to fame. These gentle giants coexist with the semi-nomadic Maasai people, the land's custodians who are always eager to share their customs with visitors on village visits. Amboseli National Park is Kenya's second most visited park after the Maasai Mara. It provides some of the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro, which is just across the border, as well as of the free-roaming African elephants who are the subject of the longest-running elephant study in the wild. Malaria is found in the area, so visitors should take the necessary precautions before visiting.
