6 Days Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli = USD 740
Day 1: Masai Mara
Today you will drive to the Masaai Mara. As you head west down the Great Rift Valley escarpment, you will turn off the main road and head towards the Narok gateway into the Mara and district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. You’ll travel across the “breakfast” of Kenya, so named due to its of wheat and barley. You will reach the Mara in time for lunch and then enjoy some free time until 1600hrs. At this point you will begin your first game drive in the reserve, which is regarded as the most magnificent natural theatre in the world. Set in the heart of Africa’s great plains, the Masai Mara boasts 1,672 square kilometers of un spoilt wilderness. It is home to the highest concentration of animals and birds anywhere on the continent.
Day 2: Masai Mara
Enjoy an early morning tea or coffee and then embark on a full day of game viewing in the Mara. This is a reserve of breathtaking vistas and panoramic views of vast rolling plains, hills and woodland groves. It is well-watered by the lovely Mara River, which bisects the reserve from north to south. The Mara is home to the largest population of lions in Kenya, and these magnificent beasts spend most of the day sleeping in the shade of acacia trees. Vast herds of buffalo, zebra and wild beast also roam the plains. Impala, gazelle, giraffe and hartebeest grace the landscape, and the cautious topi may also be seen standing sentinel on earth mounds on constant lookout for predators.
The waters of the Mara River are home to crocodiles and pools of hippo, the acacia woodlands and riverine forests are favored by leopards and elephants and the open savannah and dry bush areas play host to the plains game and their attendant predators (including lion, cheetah, hyena and jackal).
Day 3: Nakuru
Depart the Mara after breakfast and then drive the Lake Shore Hotel via the Great Rift Valley escarpment. You will experience breathtaking views of the world’s greatest land rift and arrive at the hotel in time for lunch. After lunch you will go on an evening game drive in the park.
Day 4: Amboseli
After breakfast you will begin your safari by driving south towards Amboseli National Park. In the heart of the park lies an amazing swamp fed by underground springs from the melting snows of Mount Kilimanjaro, which attracts elephants and hippos are in abundance. Amboseli is justly famous for its big game, particularly its elephants, which are the most studied in the world. You will arrive in time for lunch at your luxury lodge and then spend the afternoon at your leisure before heading out on a game drive. Your dinner and overnight stay will be at the lodge.
Day 5: Amboseli
Enjoy a day of game driving in the park while dust devils swirl around its edges. An early morning drive gives you the best chance of viewing Mt. Kilimanjaro, as the clouds tend to build up as the day progresses. Return to the lodge for breakfast and then partake in some leisure time before lunch. You will go on afternoon game drive until the late evening before returning to the lodge for dinner and your overnight stay.
