Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for Kenya

Jambo Kenya

Experience Kenya in style and luxury as you visit the unique Sweetwaters Game Reserve, Samburu National Park and the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Setting out from Nairobi you fly over the highlands of Kenya’s northern frontier. Rugged and remote, this wildlife reserve provides some of the most interesting game viewing in the country. Morning and afternoon escorted game drives enable you to see the wildlife of the region. Horse riding safaris are also available for experienced riders. Then it is onto the semi-desert bush country of the Samburu Game Reserve, home to the Samburu tribe. This region is noted for the unique species that live here, such as the Grevy's zebra, gerenuk and reticulated giraffe. It is also not uncommon to see a hundred different species of birds throughout the park. The splendor of this region is accented by the colorful dress and beauty of the Samburu tribe. Accommodation is at a luxury, tented camp on the banks of the River where you can simply relax and view game from the verandah of your tent. Then you proceed north into Amboseli, best known for its magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro as well as its elephant. Your flight over the Rift Valley to the Masai Mara, Kenya’s favored game reserve, provides the same view Dennis Finch Hatton so loved. Land Cruisers allow you to drive off-road in search of wildlife such as elephant, giraffe, prides of lion and thousands of impala, topi, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelle. While in the Mara, you have the option to float above the Mara plains aboard a hot air balloon or take a day trip to Lake Victoria where you visit a village and fish for giant Nile perch, (optional activities at an extra cost). After flying back to Nairobi we suggest lunch at one of Nairobi's many restaurants, and perhaps visit the Karen Blixen Home before returning to the airport for your international flight.
