Itinerary

Begin your safari experience with an early morning departure from Nairobi. As the urban landscape fades, anticipate the wild beauty of Mt. Longonot National Park. Upon arrival, spend the day hiking up to the crater rim of Mt. Longonot, relishing in panoramic views of the Great Rift Valley. The dormant volcano promises both adventure and breathtaking sights. After your descent, head to your chosen accommodation near Lake Naivasha, where you can relax, dine, and rest.

Dinner

Wake up to the serene ambiance of Lake Naivasha. This freshwater lake is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Engage in a boat ride, where you can observe hippos and a plethora of bird species. In the afternoon, consider visiting Hell’s Gate National Park, one of the few parks in Kenya where you can walk or cycle freely among wildlife. As evening approaches, enjoy a tranquil dinner by the lake, absorbing the calm that only nature can offer.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Post breakfast, embark on a journey to the iconic Maasai Mara National Reserve. As you approach, the terrain starts shifting to vast open savannahs. On arrival, settle into your lodge or camp, and after lunch, go for an evening game drive. The Mara, with its diverse population of wildlife and sprawling grasslands, will offer a quintessential safari experience. As dusk falls, witness a spectacular African sunset, followed by a delightful dinner under the starlit sky.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This day is dedicated to discovering the wonders of the Maasai Mara. Opt for a full-day game drive, giving you the chance to witness the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and buffalo). The Maasai Mara is particularly famous for the Great Migration, so depending on the season, you might see massive herds of wildebeests and zebras. Don’t forget to interact with the local Maasai communities, learning about their rich culture and traditions. Conclude your day with a campfire dinner, listening to the enchanting sounds of the African night.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

On your last day, rise early for a sunrise game drive, capturing the Mara as it awakens. After breakfast, bid farewell to the reserve and begin your journey back to Nairobi. The drive provides an opportunity to reflect on your unforgettable safari adventure. On reaching Nairobi, you may choose to indulge in some local shopping or cuisine before your onward journey or departure.
