Discover some of the best wildlife viewing in the world with our tailored 7-day safari through Kenya. Our journey takes us from bustling Nairobi to Lake Nakuru National Park, home to vast groups of flamingos, the famous Masai Mara, one of Africa’s best and most well-known wildlife viewing areas, and Amboseli, where elephants and other large game roam under the scenic peak of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which is across the border in Tanzania. Experience the age-old culture of the Masai, spot the Big Five and hundreds of other animal species, enjoy the breathtaking scenery, and if you’re lucky, take in the Great Migration of more than 2 million large mammals and Africa’s greatest predators through the Masai plains.

Day 01: Arrive Nairobi
Welcome to Nairobi! At the airport, we are met just outside the custom hall at the pick-up point, then transferred to our hotel.
Overnight: Sarova Panafric Hotel/Eka Hotel, Nairobi (1 night)
Day 02: Nairobi/Lake Nakuru National Park (Drive)
After an early breakfast, we start our safari with a scenic drive of the Great Rift Valley to Lake Nakuru National Park*. We arrive at the park in time to enjoy a mid-day game drive as we drive to our lodge. Check in followed by a hot lunch. Later in the afternoon, another game drive adventure as we search for rhino, Rothschild giraffe, waterbuck, zebra, leopard and more. The park is an ornithological paradise. The scenic lake’s abundance of algae attracts a vast number of flamingos and other water birds. We return to our lodge for dinner.

Day 03: Lake Nakuru National Park/Masai Mara Game Reserve (Drive)
Today, we travel from Lake Nakuru to the world-famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. We drive southwest via Narok, through the Great Rift Valley escarpment. In this stunning landscape, red-clad Maasai warriors tend their herds of cattle among the wildlife, admirably unmoved by the presence of large predators. Every summer, over 2 million animals migrate to the Mara from the Serengeti in Tanzania. After lunch at our lodge, we embark on one of the most exciting game drives African safari trips can offer, with the opportunity to see lion, leopard, cheetah and a large variety of herbivores. More than 400 resident and migratory bird species have also been recorded here.
Overnight: Mara Leisure Camp/Azure Mara Haven, Masai Mara (2 nights) (B, L, D)
Day 04: Masai Mara
An adventurous day ahead as we enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the spectacular Masai Mara Game Reserve. Blessed with a permanent water supply, Masai Mara has a year-round population of plains game. All of the Big Five animals – elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino – are quite common on this scenic grassland. The Mara is actually an extension of the Serengeti and is thus home to all the animals that the Serengeti is so well known to have. An optional popular activity is an early morning balloon safari followed by champagne breakfast right in the middle of the park, giving us a birds-eye view of the vast Mara. Please contact Bestway Tours & Safaris to prebook. (B, L, D)
