Packing some of Kenya’s biggest safari experiences onto a week-long itinerary, this overland tour is well-balanced and highly diverse. After meeting your guide in Nairobi, you begin straight away at Amboseli National Park, staying at Satao Elerai Camp, a tented eco camp set in a private concession bordering the park. Such a location enables your guide to access both destinations: game drives in Amboseli with its elephants and postcard views of Mount Kilimanjaro plus night drives and nature walks in the concession. The net result is a great range of wildlife and experiences.
Two famous Rift Valley lakes make up the next chapter: Lake Naivasha, where there is time for a boat ride, and then onto Lake Nakuru. Your home for the next two nights is Flamingo Hill Tented Camp, where you enjoy a range of game-viewing activities. Game drives also take place in nearby Lake Nakuru National Park, which is home to lions, leopards and buffalo as well as an enormous number of birds, the most famous being huge flocks of flamingos that carpet the lake at certain times of year.
Your safari closes with Kenya’s flagship national reserve: the Masai Mara, scene of the dramatic Wildebeest Migration and a rewarding and exciting safari destination at any time of year. Your accommodation is Tipilikwani Mara Camp, a tented camp lying on the banks of the Talek River and overlooking game-rich Mara plains. You enjoy guided walks, day and night drives and the option of a hot-air balloon safari before returning by road to Nairobi.
