Kenya Predators and Beasts Safari

KENYA PREDATORS AND BEASTS SAFARI

Trip duration

8 days/ 7 nights

The Kenya Predators and Beasts Safari can be combined with our Diani Beach Holiday.

 

 

DAY 1: ARRIVAL – NAIROBI, THE KENYAN SAFARI CAPITAL

Our Kenya Predators and Beasts Safari will start in Kenya’s tourism capital, Nairobi. We shall arrive via the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, where our Tour Leader will be ready to receive us and kick start our journey. We shall then head to our hotel in Nairobi, where we shall check in.

On this day, if we have an early arrival, we may explore local attractions around Nairobi. The city has a national park at its edge, making it one of the most special conservation cities globally. Otherwise, we can relax and enjoy the nice Nairobi weather from our lodge.

Night in Nairobi.

DAY 2 AND 3: OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY AND SWEETWATERS CHIMPANZEE SANCTUARY

Our Kenya Predators and Beasts Safari will proceed to the Mt. Kenya region. We shall enjoy beautiful game drives at East Africa’s largest Black Rhino sanctuary. We shall be keeping an eye for mammals such as Cape Buffalo, Grevy’s Zebra, Savannah Elephant, Spotted Hyena, Beisa Oryx, African Wild Dog, Jackson’s Hartebeest, Black Rhino, White Rhino, African Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. Birds here include the Grey Crowned Crane and White-bellied Bustard.

We shall also enjoy time at the Chimpanzees Sanctuary, which is the only place to see these Great Apes in Kenya- a key highlight on our Kenya Predators and Beasts Safaris. At Ol Pejeta, you will have a chance to alight on foot and take a selfie with the famous Equator line sign; and sometimes on clear days Mt. Kenya is visible behind you. Another top highlight of Ol Pejeta Conservancy is the Northern White Rhinos Sanctuary- there are only two individuals left on Earth; and both are hosted at Ol Pejeta.

Nights at Ol Pejeta.

DAY 4: LAKE NAIVASHA – THE GREAT RIFT VALLEY

We shall continue on our Kenya Predators and Beasts Safari to the beautiful Lake Naivasha. This amazing lake is located in the heart of the Great Rift Valley. The local birds make Lake Naivasha special too, including African Fish Eagle and Great White Pelican.

Enjoy the local herbivores, especially Cape Buffalo, Blue Wildebeest, Defassa Waterbuck, Common Zebra, Nile Hippo; among many other spectacular wildlife species. The landscapes here are very rewarding as well.

Night in Naivasha.

DAY 5, 6 AND 7: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE – PREDATORS GALORE

We shall then head to the Masai Mara National Reserve; for our next leg of the Kenya Predators and Beasts Safari. Renowned for the annual wildebeest migration, which is often regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, Masai Mara National Reserve is always the crown of our Kenya Predators and Beasts Safaris. Considered the ultimate wildlife haven in Kenya and arguably the best safari destination in Africa, this reserve has a lot to offer.

From all members of the Big 5 (African Lion, Black Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Savannah Elephant) to the numerous herbivores grazing the landscape in huge herds, Masai Mara is indeed amazing. Local birds include Secretarybird and Southern Ground Hornbill.

We shall spend the next days learning about this magical destination with our safari guide. Enjoy interesting game drives as you track the Big 5, the Big Cats- Lion, Cheetah and Leopard and much more.

Nights in Mara.

DAY 8: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE TO NAIROBI

On this day, we shall enjoy an early morning game drive in Masai Mara. We shall then head to Nairobi, cruising across the Great Rift Valley.

Later, we head to the airport; marking the end to our lovely Kenya Predators and Beasts Safari.
