KENYA WILDLIFE SAFARI

9 days/ 8 nights

The Kenya Wildlife Safari can be combined with our Mombasa Beach Holidays.

 

 

DAY 1: ARRIVAL – NAIROBI, THE AFRICAN SAFARI CAPITAL

Our Kenya Wildlife 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; preparing for the Kenya Wildlife Safari.

Night in Nairobi.

DAY 2 AND 3: TSAVO WEST NATIONAL PARK – LAND OF LAVA AND SPRINGS

Our first destination on the Kenya Wildlife Safari will be the vast Tsavo West National Park. Here we shall enjoy game drives with our safari guide, seeking the local wildlife and learning about this spectacular destination. We shall enjoy the volcanic landforms here, including the scenic Shetani Lava- an ancient lava flow that originated from the nearby Chyulu Hills. We shall also visit the Mzima Springs, a superb wetland where game viewing can be done on foot.

There will be great mammals to look forward to, including African Lions, Nile Hippos, Leopards, Savannah Elephants, Lesser Kudu and Cheetah. Birds to expect include Golden-breasted Starling, Tawny Eagle and Eastern Paradise Whydah. We shall also visit the beautiful Ngulia Valley Rhino Sanctuary; where we shall get to search for Black Rhinos. The local Baobab trees will illuminate our journey through this great place.

Nights in Tsavo West.

DAY 4 AND 5: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK – MT. KILIMANJARO

The Kenya Wildlife Safari continues to Amboseli National Park, where a great safari adventure awaits. This amazing place is regarded as one of Kenya’s Premium Parks, and is located at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The park is graced by mighty Savannah Elephants, and hosts the longest and most famous elephant research program in the entire World.

The mammals here are great indeed (including African Lion, Thompson’s Gazelle, Yellow Baboon, Blue Wildebeest and Maasai Giraffe); and we shall take time to enjoy them. The local birds are great and we shall be hoping to enjoy many species such as African Fish Eagle and Kori Bustard.

Nights in Amboseli.

DAY 6: LAKE NAIVASHA

We shall continue on our Kenya Wildlife 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 e.g. Great White Pelican, Ruppell’s Starling and African Hoopoe.

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. We shall enjoy views of the beautiful Mt. Longonot, a volcanic mountain in the Great Rift Valley- a popular site on our Kenya Wildlife Safaris.

Renowned for the annual wildebeest migration, which is often regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, Masai Mara National Reserve is the crown of our Kenya Wildlife Safaris. Considered the ultimate wildlife haven in Kenya, Masai Mara has a lot to offer.

Enjoy interesting game drives as you track Elephants, Buffaloes, Giraffes, Hippos, Crocodiles and Big Cats – Lion, Leopard and Cheetah; and much more. We shall also keep an eye for large antelopes like Topi and gazelles like Thompson’s Gazelle.
