Itinerary

Begin your safari adventure from Nairobi, setting off early in the morning to maximize your wildlife viewing potential. As you drive towards Ol Pejeta Conservancy, enjoy the dramatic change in scenery as the urban backdrop of Nairobi gives way to the open plains and rolling hills of central Kenya. Upon arrival at Ol Pejeta, you’ll have the unique opportunity to see the Big Five, with a particular emphasis on the conservancy’s efforts to protect the endangered black rhino. After an exciting afternoon game drive, retire to your camp or lodge, savoring a delicious meal and perhaps even a campfire under the vast African sky.

Dinner

Awaken to the sounds of the African wilderness and embark on an early morning game drive in Ol Pejeta, maximizing your chances to see the wildlife in its most active state. Post breakfast, journey to Lake Nakuru National Park. The drive will be scenic, transitioning from the Laikipia Plateau to the stunning Great Rift Valley. Once in Lake Nakuru, you’ll be treated to a sea of pink, thanks to the thousands of flamingos that flock to the alkaline lake, set against the backdrop of wooded and bushy grasslands. Besides the flamingos, the park is also a sanctuary to rhinos, lions, baboons, and many other species. Overnight will be at a lodge or campsite near the lake.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Start your day with a sunrise game drive around Lake Nakuru, then proceed southwest to the world-renowned Maasai Mara National Reserve. As you near the Maasai Mara, the landscape will morph into vast savannahs, a hint of the dramatic wildlife spectacles to come. Upon arrival, embark on an evening game drive, introducing you to the rich biodiversity of this iconic reserve, from lions, cheetahs, and elephants to the countless antelope species that roam the plains. Spend your first night in the Mara under a canopy of stars, a truly authentic wilderness experience.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This day is dedicated to exploring the magnificent Maasai Mara. Opt for a balloon safari at dawn, drifting silently above the plains with the wildlife below, followed by a luxurious champagne breakfast. If you visit during the Great Migration period (typically July to October), you’ll witness the incredible sight of over a million wildebeest, zebras, and antelopes crossing the plains and taking their chances against predators in the Mara River. Round off your day with a cultural visit to a Maasai village, where you can learn about the traditions and ways of life of this ancient tribe.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After an early morning game drive and a hearty breakfast, bid farewell to the Maasai Mara and begin your journey back to Nairobi. Along the way, reflect on the incredible memories and encounters you’ve experienced over the last five days.
