Highly recommended for travellers who are pressed for time and want to maximise a limited budget, this overland safari serves up an amazing itinerary at a very competitive rate. Beginning and ending in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, your tour forsakes the usual city hotel for a tented camp in the Nairobi National Park, assuring you of wildlife sightings from the first afternoon.
You then have an opportunity to explore two of the most famous Rift Valley lakes – Naivasha and Nakuru – taking in their fabulous birdlife and range of animals before finishing with Kenya’s showpiece, the Masai Mara. The Mara is most famous for the annual Wildebeest Migration and remains an excellent wildlife destination at any time of year. You have time for morning and afternoon game drives in search of big cats, wild dogs and heavyweight animals such as elephant, rhino and buffalo.
Safe in the hands of a professional driver-guide, this tour uses a mix of tented camps and lodges with cottage accommodation. All rooms have an en suite bathroom and you have a range of comforts and conveniences to look forward to, including Wi-Fi access, a spa with massage therapist and a swimming pool.
