Kenya’s national parks and game reserves are a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, offering a variety of Kenyan animals and accommodations to suit all preferences. From low budget camping to moderately priced lodges to top-notch luxury bush lodges, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
The most famous of all Kenya’s game parks is, of course, the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The Maasai Mara is known for its wildebeest migration but it is also home to Kenya’s “big five” animals, more than 400 species of birds, and varying topography. In addition to the “Big Five”, you will find plenty of interesting Kenyan wildlife such as hippos, jackals, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, wildebeests, hyenas, antelope, cheetahs, crocodiles and more.

Today your 7 days Kenya safari commence by a pick up from Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International airport if your flight lands in Kenya very early and you opt not to have a night in Nairobi. If you already booked an hotel in Nairobi then pick up will be as early as 07:00 am in the morning followed by a transfer to Amboseli national pack which is famous for its scenery with a backdrop of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which dominates the landscape and open plains. You will arrive with more game drive proceeding to your lodge /or tented camp for check inn and for hot lunch and a short rest. Afternoon game drive in the park will follow until closing time in the evening at around 18: 30 hrs local time. Dinner and overnight at your preferred accommodation choice

After an early breakfast followed by a departure from amboseli National park for Lake Nakuru national park via Nairobi for an early lunch. The safari shall then continue to lake Nakuru National park via The Great Rift Valley; brief stop here for historical lectures and photography there after proceed to lake Nakuru via Naivasha for an hour boat ride. I recommend that you relax within the hotel in lake Nakuru this evening and proceed for a game viewing in Lake Nakuru National park on Day 4 as this will give you much time in Lake Nakuru when you have more energy. This is so because Lake Nakuru National park does not accept re-entry to the park for all the guest who opt for accommodation outside the park
Recommend early breakfast followed by a 4 hours game viewing in Lake Nakuru National park before setting off for Masai Mara Game reserve, hot lunch served en route.
On arrival at the Safari Lodge, relax and after the sun has cool down proceed for a game drive in search for black manned lions, elephants, leopard, cheetah, buffalo and other plains game. Return to the camp for dinner and overnight stay.
A full day set aside today for game viewing in Kenya’s finest wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve.
Our morning and afternoon (full day) game drives take us in search of Africa’s Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange-tinged sunsets that make for spectacular photos. Much game are coming at your door step when you in the park leaving you with only option of counting your blessings that nature holds for you as you view them in their natural habitat.
The Mara Reserve covers 1510km² of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodlands, following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in southwest Kenya. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical open savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife.
Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara Park you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffalos, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is without a doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grazers move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October for the new life circle to begin after a life threatening move across the strong jaws of East Africa crocodile found within the mara river and talek river. Despite the wildebeest movement in the month of July, Aug and October, Maasai mara is well known for its wide range of wildlife (Flora and fauna) all the year round.
