Begin this 7-day tour in Kenya’s capital of Nairobi where you overnight at the Southern Sun Mayfair Hotel, which is set in beautifully landscaped gardens near Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Then set off with your driver and guard in a private 4x4 to take in the best that this game-rich, classic safari country has to offer.
Your next stop is Amboseli Sopa Lodge under the shadow of colossal Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s biggest free-standing mountain. From this traditional Maasai-style safari camp, enjoy 4x4 game drives with uninterrupted views and the opportunity to photograph impressive herds of elephant against this dramatic backdrop. Exciting walking safaris and guided tours of a traditional Maasai village are enlightening cultural experiences on offer here.
You then head to Lake Nakuru Lodge within the eponymous national park, which is inhabited by a population of approximately two million pink flamingos and an array of other birdlife. Your final stayover is in the Masai Mara National Park, which is synonymous with the epic annual migration of thousands of zebra and wildebeest. Apart from bearing witness to nature’s greatest spectacle, this reserve is also home to incredible predators, which include high concentrations of lion and cheetah.
