Let us customise this sample itinerary to make your dream safari

Overview

A relatively short safari, this 6-day itinerary is ideal for travellers pressed for time or as an opening chapter to a safari-and-beach holiday combination; it is easy to add on a seamless transition to Diani Beach, Zanzibar or even the idyllic Seychelles.

Beginning with an overland transfer from Nairobi, your tour includes two nights at a private reserve bordering Amboseli National Park and two in the Masai Mara National Reserve, punctuated by a night at a safari lodge in the Nairobi National Park.

The tour opens with Amboseli, home to the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro – the world’s tallest free-standing mountain – as well as a wide range of heavyweight animals to begin your safari, including elephants, buffalo and lion. The park’s extensive wetlands make for interesting game viewing and bird watching, and you have a chance to visit a traditional Maasai village.

Your guide then takes you back to Nairobi where you keep the safari theme by checking in for a night at Nairobi Tented Camp, located in Nairobi National Park. This is the place to photograph towering giraffes with the city skyline in the far distance!

Then it is on to Kenya’s wildlife showpiece – the Masai Mara – and you can sit back on a scheduled flight and watch the Rift Valley below you as you fly straight in. You enjoy two nights at Porini Mara Camp, exploring the Masai Mara and private conservancies where you are guaranteed excellent and exclusive game viewing. The wild drama of the seasonal Wildebeest Migration takes centre stage but such is the abundance of resident wildlife that this region delivers great sightings all year round and is especially good for large predators. A flight back to Nairobi after a morning walk with Maasai warriors rounds off a packed and exciting six days in Africa.

Itinerary

Day to day

On arrival at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, your guide will meet you and whisk you to your vehicle for the drive to Amboseli National Park.

As you drive through the changing landscape of villages and farms, your surroundings gradually become more open and rugged, and the bulk of Mount Kilimanjaro looms into view. Drawing closer, you enter the Selenkay Conservancy bordering Amboseli, and shortly thereafter arrive at Porini Amboseli Camp. Enjoy a delicious lunch in the shade of a spreading Tortilis tree, and then settle into your spacious canvas suite. As the afternoon begins to cool down, you wander over to the mess tent for high tea before departing on your game drive.

Heading into the Selenkay Conservancy, you seek out a multitude of big game in the enigmatic light of an equatorial afternoon. Red dust billows around a herd of buffalo on the move, the sunlight creating an intriguing interplay of shadow and colour.

As the sun dips on to the horizon, your guide selects a scenic spot alongside a waterhole where you can stretch your legs, and produces a hamper crammed with ice cold drinks and snacks. As the sky changes colour and the landscape before takes on shadowy hues of purples and golds, you raise your glass in a salute to the glorious African sunset.

As the stars begin to appear in the great arching dome of sky above, you make your way back to camp while your guide deftly wields a spotlight to look for nocturnal animals as they emerge into the darkness. A hyena looks at the vehicle curiously, eyes glowing in the light, before silently melting back into the night. Genets leap acrobatically through the trees, bush babies peer at you with enormous eyes, and porcupines shuffle through the undergrowth.

Back at the camp, you share stories of your adventures in the warm glow of the fire before sitting at the table bathed in candle light for a sumptuous meal below the stars.
