Day 02: Amboseli

Full day in the park with morning and afternoon game drives at one of Kenya’s most visited parks, Amboseli boasts open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush, swamps and marshes that are fed by the melt waters of Kilimanjaro.

 

Amboseli is located on the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro – This is Africa’s highest mountain – whose peak lies across the border in Tanzania. Early morning you will be able to see the snow capped Kilimanjaro standing tall above the clouds. There is a wide variety of animal species and no wonder Amboseli national park is a haven for photography enthusiast. This area is home to many Maasai communities, centered around the Amboseli National Park. The park is home to more than just Elephants, and herds of wildebeest, zebra and impala graze on the open plains… There are areas of acacia forest that make for good birding, and are home to many small mammals. Cheetahs are also often sighted here. The park is centered around a large hill, with fantastic views of the surrounding plains, often crossed by whirlwinds that send winding columns of dust into the sky. The waters from melted snow drain down the mountain under lava flows and surface on the Amboseli plains, creating a green belt of swampland amidst dusty plains. Amboseli Sentrim Lodge/ similar.

Day 03: Amboseli/Lake Nakuru

After breakfast, depart for Lake Nakuru National Park via Nairobi with a brief stop at the Great Rift Valley view point. Lunch will be taken en route. Afterwards proceed with your journey to Lake Nakuru National Park. Arrive in the afternoon, after refreshing up and a short rest have an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge in the evening for dinner and overnight.

 

Lake Nakuru’s claim to fame is anchored on its flamingo’s and the over 400 species of birds found here. The lake itself is a soda lake on the floor of the rift valley. The sight of the at times millions of flamingos is quite spectacular. From a distance the lake appears ringed in pink hence its name ‘ pink lake’. The Lake has also earned a reputation as an important haven for endangered species – particularly the Rothschild Giraffe. Lake Nakuru National park also has a Rhino sanctuary that boasts of white rhinos. Other animals species to be found here include the ever elusive leopard, lions, hippos, buffaloes, water bucks, warthogs and the baboons are all residents here.

Arrive in the late evening. Dinner and overnight at a lodge. Mara Sentrim Lodge/ similar. Meal plan {FB}

 

Day 05: Masai Mara Game Reserve

Full day at the reserve with morning and afternoon game drives in search of the ‘big 5’. Masai Mara is at the northern most extension of the Serengeti Plains and one of the richest wildlife game reserves. Its home to the splendid black –manned lion, the elusive leopard, stately giraffe, vast bulk of elephants, rhino, thundering herds of zebra, migrating wildebeest and numerous other plains game, thereafter return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

 

Masai Mara offers an absolutely unique variety of animals. The reason is that this hilly region is both humid and fertile, and is crossed by the Mara and Talek rivers, full of crocodiles and hippos. The abundance of water and excellent availability of food are the reasons why the Masai Mara, which in fact is a continuation of the Tanzanian Serengeti National Park, has the greatest population of wild animals in the whole of Africa. There is a particularly dramatic “spectacle” from July to November, the annual migration of huge herds of Gnus and zebras. Predators such as Hyenas, Jackals, Leopards and Lions of course, closely follow these herds. Gigantic herds of over 200 buffaloes can also be observed. Plenty of food is available for elephants, giraffes, and the many species of antelopes. Mara Sentrim/ Similar. Meal plan F/B

 

OPTIONAL (a visit to the Masai villages and hot air balloon taking off in the beautiful early morning, you drift above the browsing game and have tremendous opportunities for unusual photographs. What could be more uplifting than an early morning safari in a hot air balloon flying over the vast plains of Africa? Witness an African sunrise as a plethora of wildlife roam the land beneath you. At the end of the flight you land on the plains, in the midst of this enchanting savannah a champagne breakfast is laid out with the mouth watering aroma of sausages, eggs, and bacon, sizzling over a charcoal fire.
