Upon arrival in Nairobi, Kenya, your host will be on hand at the Jomo Kenyatta International airport to welcome you with a warm smile, assist and escort you to Ole Sereni Hotel.

If you wish, take a minute to explore The Big Five Restaurant, serving Grill, Italian, Indian and Oriental cuisine, whilst you relax and unwind after your flight. If you’re ready for sleep, you’ll immediately relax in your luxurious room, with its fine linens. In the morning you’ll be refreshed and ready to go. Who says a safari has to be rustic?

Accommodation: Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge
   [Alt: Ol Tukai Lodge]
Meal Plan: Full Board - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Activity: Transfer by road to Amboseli before an afternoon game drive

After a tasty breakfast, it is time to head out to Amboseli National Park, considered the prime location in the world for viewing wild elephants.  Nothing can beat the site of these magnificent creatures with Mount Kilimanjaro as their backdrop.  The mountain is the world’s highest free-standing mountain and its majesty will take your breath away. In addition, you’ll see plenty more wildlife – including giraffes, lions and cheetahs. You’ll know this is a real safari as you travel over the rugged roads to the park and later on your afternoon game drive.  It is an exciting day and you’ll be grateful for a chance to unwind at the Amboseli Serena Lodge, with uninterrupted views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. After a relaxing dinner, you will sleep well in the chalet-style elegant rooms that offer the ultimate in comfort.

Day 3: Second day at the Amboseli National Park.

Accommodation: Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge
   [Alt: Ol Tukai Lodge]
Meal Plan: Full Board - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Activity: Morning and afternoon game drives

The day starts with breakfast and a morning game drive where you’ll see white rhinos, wildebeests, zebras and many other species. Undoubtedly, you will also see many of the more than 400 species of birds that inhabit the park.  Amazingly, the sites you see in the morning will be quite different from those you’ll see on the afternoon game drive as the various creatures respond to their unique biological clocks.  Depending on the time of year, the terrain will vary – from Ernest Hemingway’s “Snows of Kilimanjaro” to the hot dry summer to the life-giving rainy season – but it will always be beautiful.  The routes taken will depend on weather conditions but they all offer unforgettable scenery, so keep your camera ready.   You will also have the chance to take a “walking safari” for a close up view of Kenya, along with an optional visit to an authentic tribal village.  When you need a break, take a dip in the lodge’s pool or take a nap in your cool, comfortable room.

Day 4: Fly to Nairobi. Drive to Ol Pejeta Conservancy before an afternoon game drive.

Accommodation: Sweetwaters Tented Camp
   [Alt: Serena Mountain Lodge]
Meal Plan: Full Board - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Activity: Fly to Nairobi. Drive to Ol Pejeta Conservancy before an afternoon game drive.

After a delicious breakfast, it’s time to head to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, situated between the foot hills of the Aberdare and the magnificent snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya.  The 90,000-acre private wilderness of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy boasts an astounding variety of wildlife, including all the members of the ‘Big Five' (the endangered black and white rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo and lion). Offering one of the highest wildlife densities in Kenya and a higher wildlife to acre ratio than any Kenyan national park, the conservancy offers sanctuary to a number of endangered species, most notably the rare Grevy's zebra and the Jackson's Hartebeest. The largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, the conservancy also hosts the only sanctuary for chimpanzees in Kenya. Tonight you stay at the Sweetwaters Tented Camp, a sheltered oasis, clustered around a water hole and set in the pristine calm of the private Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The camp offers a charming blend of under-canvas ambiance and safari luxury.

Day 5: Transfer to Lake Nakuru before enjoying an afternoon game drive.

Accommodation:  Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge
   [Alt: Flamingo Hill Camp]
Meal Plan: Full Board - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Activity: Transfer to Lake Nakuru before enjoying an afternoon game drive.

After breakfast this morning, it will be time to head out to Lake Nakuru National Park.  This park is world-renowned for its millions of flamingos.  Watch them from Baboon Cliff and be mesmerized by the sea of pink.  The park also serves as Kenya’s first rhino sanctuary and is home to both white and black species.   Protection is also offered to rare Rothschild giraffes – a 188-km area around the lake is fenced off to protect them.  You’ll also be able to explore the beautiful Malaika Waterfall and, of course, Lake Nakuru.  This is the true “Out of Africa” experience as tonight you’ll stay at Sarova Lion Hill.  Previous guests have consistently rated its food as superb. The layout of the rooms and sitting areas afford guests stunning views of Lake Nakuru and the Park. The Lodge incorporates natural landscaping with tall acacia trees, winding walkways and greens dotted with bird feeds. The Lodge is a natural haven for bird life and attracts over 50 species of birds amongst the 400 species that inhabit the Park.

Day 6: Transfer to the amazing Maasai Mara before an afternoon game drive.

Accommodation: Sarova Mara Game Camp
   [Alt: Mara Serena Safari Lodge]
Meal Plan: Full Board - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Activity: Transfer to the amazing Maasai Mara before an afternoon game drive

When those of us in the west hear the term “African Safari” the picture that comes to mind is the Maasai Mara Reserve, which is where you are going today.  Here is where you’ll find the grasslands, the lions, the jackals, the wildebeests and more.  This will also be your opportunity to get to know the Maasai, the semi-nomadic natives of Kenya.  These cattle-herding people have managed to preserve their way of life through the centuries; visiting them is an enriching experience. 

Day 7: Morning and afternoon game drives at Maasai Mara.

Accommodation: Sarova Mara Game Camp
   [Alt: Mara Serena Safari Lodge]
Meal Plan: Full Board - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Activity: Morning and afternoon game drives.

You will be glad to have a second day to explore the Maasai Mara Reserve.  Today you’ll have both a morning and an afternoon game drive and you’ll marvel at how completely different they are.  You’ll have the chance to see the continent’s largest prides of lions as well as many herds of antelopes, buffaloes, cheetahs, hyenas, wildebeests and zebras.  If you’re able to visit between July and October, you may be able to witness the Great Migration, when huge herds of Thomson’s gazelles, wildebeests and zebras travel in mass from the Serengeti.  It is an unforgettable experience that is not to be missed.  No matter when you visit, you will also have a chance to take a “walking safari”, or visit a local tribal village if you wish.  You will learn about the Maasai way of life and how they have managed to retain their semi-nomadic customs even in today’s modern world, when so much of their world is at risk.  After all these adventures, you will be more than ready for a mid-day nap, take a dip in the pool or laze on the veranda to escape the heat of the day. 

Day 8: Transfer to Nairobi by road at your leisure.


Meal Plan: Breakfast & Dinner
Activity: Drive back to Nairobi City at leisure. Airport departure transfer.

A day that seemed a long way off has come much too soon.  Business, work and home await and it is time to return to that other world and bid your travel companions goodbye.  In the morning, if time allows, enjoy a final predawn game drive followed by a leisurely breakfast. Later we depart by road for Nairobi. A farewell dinner awaits you before you depart. In the evening we transfer to the airport for your outbound flight home, carrying a lifetime of memories from your African Safari with you.
