This 5-day adventure journey is through Amboseli National Park, home to the largest tuskers you will ever see, under the watchful Kilimanjaro. Stop for a night in the idyllic Lake Naivasha on your way to the last leg of the trip: The Mara, probably the most prolific wildlife destination on the planet.

Day 1: Nairobi / Amboseli National Park

An early morning starts and drive to Amboseli National Park. Check in at your accommodation and have lunch. In the afternoon, have a game drive. Amboseli National Park is situated due south of Nairobi. Most of the park consists of a dry, ancient lake bed and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland. In the southern area there are a number of small, rocky, volcanic hills. Around the swamps Ol Kenya, Ol Tukai and Enkongo Narok, the vegetation is lush with yellow-barked acacias and phoenix palms.

Location: Amboseli National Park

Accommodation: Kibo Safari Camp

Meals Plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Drinking Water and Fruits throughout

Day 2: Amboseli National Park /Lake Naivasha

Have an early morning drive to Lake Naivasha, the highest and the most beautiful of the Rift Valley lakes. At 1910m (6200ft), the water is fresh and the lake is fringed with dense clumps of papyrus (ancient Egyptian once used this to make paper). Kingfishers use the papyrus as a perch, herons hide in it while searching for food.

Naivasha is yet another area popular for bird watching (over 400 species have been recorded). It is also a favourite weekend retreat for Nairobi residents, who come here to sail, water ski and fish. There are no crocodiles in the lake as the water is too cold for them, due to altitude but there are a number of hippos. Along the lakeshore, vineyards produce grapes for the country’s fledgeling wine industry.

Location: Lake Naivasha (Lake)

Day 3: Lake Naivasha/ Masai Mara National Reserve

Depart early in the morning to Masai Mara National Reserve. Arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive. Mara holds on as one of the few places left on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once roamed the plains and forests of Africa. As the northern tip of the vast Serengeti ecosystem, the Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of wildebeest, zebras and attendant predators.

Location: Masai Mara National Reserve

Accommodation: Ilkeliani Camp

Meals Plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 4: Masai Mara National Reserve

After breakfast, we will have a full day game drive, with packed lunch provided. The reserve is well known for its black-manned lions, as well as its abundant resident wildlife. It is one of the few places where it’s possible to see the Big Five during a morning’s game drive.

Many of the cheetahs are so tame that they seek shelter from the hot sun under one’s vehicle and several even climb onto the roof to get a better view of prospective prey. For the bird enthusiast, almost 500 species have been recorded: among these 16 species of eagle, many hawks and falcons, 6 species of vultures, 8 species of storks, 4 of bustard (including the kori bustard, the world’s heaviest flying bird), and 9 species of sunbirds.

You’ll quickly discover that Switzerland isn’t just home to the Alps, but also to some of the most beautiful lakes.
