Day 1: MOMBASA - TSAVO EAST (120 kms, Appx 2½ hrs)

We depart our hotel on the inland journey via the Mombasa - Nairobi highway. The 120km - 2hrs dawn journey takes us to the southern entry point of the Bachuma gate where we stop briefly for refreshments. We commence game viewing drives on entry in the direction of our accommodation base.

After check-in, we will freshen up and enjoy a buffet lunch. We relax and adjust to the “jungle environment” awaiting the afternoon drive when the wild game comes alive after the mid-day heat lull. We transverse the park looking out for game, drinking at the scenery and marveling at the splendor that the African sunset immerses the jungle in. Our expert safari driver guide takes us through the tracks, returning us to our bases for our evening meals and overnight.

Day 2: TSAVO EAST - AMBOSELI (300 kms, Appx 5½ hrs)

An early date with nature! We start the day with an early breakfast later setting off for Amboseli with an exit game viewing drive en-route. The later part of the days journey is bumpy and dusty but the scenic drama more than compensates for the ride. “This is an Africa safari with adventure thrown in”

Mid-day finds us at the floors of the Kilimanjaro. Check-in, freshen up and relax before venturing out on a short, concentrated game viewing drive. Game at Amboseli is easily visible with the majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro offering the ultimate backdrop for both amateur and professional photographers. What you missed at the Tsavo will definitely be found here!

Dinner and overnight will be at our base with vantage views of the roof of Africa.

Day 3: AMBOSELI - LAKE NAKURU (420 kms, Appx 7 hrs)

Today we start with an early breakfast. The drive will be long but most of it on tarmac. We shall follow the Mombasa – Nairobi highway stopping for lunch en-route. The drive is scenic with a glimpse of the capital city, a real contrast to the “safari wild”. Coffee and tea plantations and local subsistence farms canopy the red volcanic soils of the central highlands. We stop to marvel at the sheer drop of the Rift Valley and the change in climatic zones, via the Lakes Naivasha and Elmenteita to arrive at our accommodation base in the late afternoon. Time permitting; an induction drive around the lake. Meals and overnight at our accommodation base.

Day 4: LAKE NAKURU - MASAI MARA (280 kms, Appx 5½ hrs)

Great moments will be spent around Lake Nakuru National Park with its millions of flamingoes, pelicans and a great variety of bird species. The Lake Nakuru National Park is host to a Rhino Sanctuary and other animal species. We will break for lunch before proceeding to the Masai Mara game reserve. Arrival at Masai Mara will be in the early evening with an en-route game viewing towards the direction of our accommodation base. Meals and overnight at our base.

Day 5: MASAI MARA

Wake up at dawn. Its pure wildlife and scenery indulgence today. The Mara eco-system hosts the highest concentration of game per sq. km. than any other park in the region. We will choose to take picnic lunches or return to our base for lunch. Whichever way, the Mara will satiate everyone’s game viewing appetite. Dinner and overnight at the Mara.

Day 6: MASAI MARA – NAIROBI - MOMBASA (Masai Mara to Nairobi 265 kms, Appx. 5hrs)
