SCENES OF KENYA SAFARI

Trip duration

8 days/ 7 nights

The Scenes of Kenya Safari can be combined with our Watamu and Malindi Beach Holidays.

 

 

DAY 1: ARRIVAL – NAIROBI, THE AFRICAN SAFARI CAPITAL

Our Scenes of Kenya 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. Indeed Nairobi is the best place to start your Kenya safaris. Otherwise, we can relax and enjoy the nice Nairobi weather from our lodge; preparing for the Scenes of Kenya Safari.

Night in Nairobi.

DAY 2 AND 3: SAMBURU AND BUFFALO SPRINGS NATIONAL RESERVES

You will then head north, crossing the Equator to Samburu; where our Scenes of Kenya Safari continues. This spectacular reserve hosts some very unique wildlife such as the Beisa Oryx, Gerenuk, Grevy’s Zebra and Reticulated Giraffe; most of which are not easy to find south of the Equator. We shall also explore the neighbouring Buffalo Springs National Reserve.

The mighty Ewaso Ng’iro North River meanders its way across these reserves giving life to this beautiful land. Local Doum Palms tangle their branches in the sky as if waving at the people, and provide the landscape with a beautiful touch. Enjoy tracking the local elephants and other members of the Big 5 on your game drives.

Nights in Samburu.

DAY 4: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK

We shall continue on our Scenes of Kenya Safari to the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. The park is known for the mighty Lake Nakuru, a soda lake at the heart of the great ecosystem. This park is also a great sanctuary for rhinos and these may be encountered on our game drives.

The local birds make the park special too, and it is often referred as the birdwatcher’s paradise. Enjoy the large herds of herbivores, especially the local Cape Buffaloes among many other spectacular wildlife species. The landscapes here are very rewarding as well.

Night in Nakuru.

DAY 5, 6 AND 7: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

From Lake Nakuru, we shall head to the Masai Mara. 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 Scenes of Kenya Safari experience. Considered the ultimate wildlife haven in Kenya, this reserve has a lot to offer.

From all members of the Big 5 to the numerous herbivores grazing the landscape in huge herds, Masai Mara is indeed amazing. We shall spend the next days of the Scenes of Kenya Safari 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.

There will be an optional Maasai Village visit on one morning- this is one of Africa’s best preserved cultures and you will have a chance to learn about their way of life.

Here you can also take part in an optional balloon ride across the beautiful Masai Mara plains. This is followed by a scrumptious breakfast and cocktail party; all set up in the bush, with great views of the Masai Mara. This experience is a popular highlight on our Scenes of Kenya Safaris.

Nights in Mara.

DAY 8: MASAI MARA TO NAIROBI

On this day, we shall enjoy an early morning game drive in the 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 Scenes of Kenya Safari.
