Itinerary

Begin your adventure in Nairobi, departing early after a hearty breakfast. As you leave the city’s bustling atmosphere, the landscape transforms, presenting the picturesque Great Rift Valley. By late morning, you’ll find yourself at Hell’s Gate National Park. Here, you’ll marvel at the park’s distinctive geothermal activity, its towering cliffs, and perhaps even spot some of its resident wildlife. The park’s relative lack of large predators makes it unique; it’s one of the few in Kenya where you can walk or cycle freely. After an active day, retreat to your selected lodge near Lake Naivasha for a sumptuous dinner and your first night under the star-lit African sky.

Lunch, Dinner

Awaken to the harmonious song of birds, ready to explore Lake Naivasha’s wonders. Set out on a boat ride to view hippos, various bird species, and, if you’re fortunate, the graceful giraffes quenching their thirst by the shores. Crescent Island, a private sanctuary in the lake, is a must-visit with its free-roaming animals and serene ambiance. As the day wanes, maybe opt for a guided walk around the lake, immersing yourself in its calm. Spend your second night by Lake Naivasha, perhaps indulging in a lakeside dinner.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, embark on the journey to the renowned Maasai Mara National Reserve. As you drive, the landscape becomes an undulating sea of savannah. On arrival, an afternoon game drive beckons. The Mara, a continuation of Tanzania’s Serengeti, boasts a wildlife spectacle unrivaled elsewhere. From the iconic Big Five to cheetahs, hyenas, and more, the diversity is astounding. After the drive, check into your chosen camp or lodge, savoring a dinner with the wild sounds of the Mara as your backdrop.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Dawn in the Maasai Mara is magical. Opt for a morning game drive or, for the more adventurous, a hot-air balloon safari, floating serenely over the plains as wildlife starts its day below. Post-lunch, another game drive offers chances to spot any animals you missed earlier. The Mara River, with its resident crocodiles and hippos, is a prime location, especially during the Great Migration when wildebeest and zebras brave its treacherous waters. As night falls, share stories around a campfire before retiring.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Your final day starts with a morning game drive, giving you one last chance to witness the Mara’s wildlife wonders. Post-breakfast, bid farewell and begin the journey back to Nairobi. Arriving in the city by late afternoon or early evening, the safari concludes, leaving you with memories to cherish forever.
