This is a 9-day safari visiting the best of Kenya: Tsavo West National Park(2 nights), Amboseli National Park (2 nights), Lake Nakuru National Park (2 nights) and Masai Mara National Reserve (2 nights). All our tours are customizable and we can increase or decrease the number of days, mix accommodation level, etc.

Day 1: Nairobi to Tsavo West National Park

You’ll be picked up from the airport or hotel. We’ll depart by road for Tsavo West National Park. We’ll arrive in time for lunch then have an optional afternoon or evening game drive. Tsavo West is the most visited section in Tsavo National Park, offering many attractions apart from its wildlife. The foremost is the famous Mzima Springs where up to 227.3 million litres of cool crystal clear water flows out of the ground through porous volcanic rocks. The water is believed to originate from Chuyulu Hills, via an underground river.

Have dinner and your overnight stay at the camp.

Location: Tsavo West National Park

Accommodation: Kipalo Hills

Meals Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Drinking Water and fruits throughout

Day 2: Tsavo West National Park

After breakfast, we will have a full day game drive, packed lunch provided. Other interesting places to visit are the Roaring Rocks, which get their name from the wind that hurtles through them. From here, there are wonderful views over Tsavo from the top of a 98m rock face; similar views can be experienced from the poacher’s lookout. The volcanic Chaimu Crater, less than 200 years old and composed of black coke, is worth visiting and can be climbed if one is interested. The area is a good place to look out for klipspringer, a small antelope that’s as agile as its Swahili name mbuzi mawe(mountain goat). In the south-west corner of Tsavo West is Lake Jipe, which has the Kenyan-Tanzanian border running through it.

Dinner and your overnight stay are at the camp.

Day 3: Tsavo West National Park to Amboseli National Park

Early in the morning, start and drive to Amboseli National Park. Check in at your accommodation. Have an afternoon game drive after lunch.

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, while in the southern area there is a number of small, rocky, volcanic hills. Around the swamps Ol Okenya, Ol Tukai and Enkongo Narok, the vegetation is lush with yellow-barked acacias and phoenix palms.

Dinner and your overnight stay are at the camp.

Day 4: Amboseli National Park

Left harassed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any safari.

You’ll rise up early for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit with packed lunch provided. An optional visit to a Maasai village can be planned after breakfast. A visit reveals the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience. Despite its changing habitat, Amboseli National Park is possibly the best wildlife area in the whole of Africa to experience elephants at close range. Left unharassed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any safari.

Dinner and your overnight stay are at the camp.

Meals Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Drinking Water and fruits throughout

Day 5: Amboseli National Park to Lake Naivasha

Have an early morning drive to Lake Naivasha. It is 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 fledging wine industry.

Dinner and your overnight stay are at the camp.

Location: Lake Naivasha (Lake)

Accommodation: Kiboko Luxury Camp

Meals Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Drinking Water and fruits throughout

Day 6: Lake Naivasha to Lake Nakuru National Park

Have an early morning pick up then drive to Lake Nakuru National Park. Across the equator, southwards of Bogoria, lies the Rift Valley most famous Lake Nakuru. Known all over the world for its flamingoes, it’s alkaline and is recognized as being one of the Natural Wonders of the World. Lake Nakuru is now a rhino sanctuary, harboring a population of over 40 black and over 60 white rhinos, but the flamingoes, of course, have always been the main attraction. At times there may be almost 2 million flamingoes in the residence, forming a stunningly beautiful deep pink band around the edge of the lake shore. Arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive.

Dinner and overnight stay are at the campsite or lodge.

Location: Lake Nakuru National Park

Accommodation: The Cliff Camp.

Meals Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7: Lake Nakuru National Park to Masai Mara National Reserve

Have an early morning drive to Masai Mara National Reserve. It 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. Arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive.

Dinner and your overnight stay are at the campsite or lodge.

    Itinerary

    Day 1 Arrive in Zürich, Switzerland

    We’ll meet at 4 p.m. at our hotel in Luzern (Lucerne) for a “Welcome to Switzerland” meeting.

Walking: light.

    Day 2Zürich–Biel/Bienne–Neuchâtel–Geneva

    Enjoy an orientation walk of Zurich’s OLD TOWN, Switzerland’s center of banking and commerce. Then, leave Zurich and start your Swiss adventure. You’ll quickly discover that Switzerland isn’t just home to the Alps, but also to some of the most beautiful lakes. First, stop at the foot of the Jura Mountains in the picturesque town of Biel, known as Bienne by French-speaking Swiss, famous for watch-making, and explore the historical center. Next, enjoy a scenic drive to lakeside Neuchâtel, dominated by the medieval cathedral and castle. Time to stroll along the lake promenade before continuing to stunning Geneva, the second-largest city in Switzerland, with its fantastic lakeside location and breathtaking panoramas of the Alps.

    Day 3Enchanting Engelberg

    Our morning drive takes us from Swiss lakes to Swiss Army. At the once-secret Swiss army bunker at Fortress Fürigen, we’ll see part of the massive defense system designed to keep Switzerland strong and neutral. Afterward, a short drive into the countryside brings us to the charming Alpine village of Engelberg, our picturesque home for the next two days. We’ll settle into our lodge then head out for an orientation walk. Our stroll through the village will end at the Engelberg Abbey, a Benedictine monastery with its own cheese-making operation. You’ll have free time to wander back before dinner together. Sleep in Engelberg (2 nights). Bus: 1 hr. Walking: light.

    Day 4Interlaken Area. Excursion to The Jungfrau Massif
