Into Wild – Mid-Range Safari in Kenya

During this 8-day adventure “into the wild”, you will journey to Amboseli National Park, where you’ll spend two nights in the realm of the largest tuskers you will ever encounter. A night’s stay in the picturesque Lake Nakuru and another in Lake Naivasha will be part of your itinerary. Subsequently, you will proceed to the Masai Mara, widely regarded as one of the most prolific wildlife destinations. planet.

Day 1: Amboseli National Park

You'll have an early morning start and drive to Amboseli National Park. Check-in at your accommodation and have lunch. In the afternoon, go for 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, 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 will be at the campsite or lodge.

Accommodation: Kibo Safari Camp
Meals & Drinks: All meals included

Day 2: Amboseli National Park

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 will be at the campsite or lodge.

Day 3: Lake Naivasha

You'll 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 while 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 favorite 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 the altitude but there are a number of hippos. Along the lakeshore, vineyards produce grapes for the country's fledgeling wine industry.
Dinner and your overnight stay will be at the campsite or lodge.

*A boat ride in Lake Naivasha is included.

Accommodation: Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort

Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park

You'll have an early morning pick up, then drive to Lake Nakuru National Park. 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, harbouring 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 lakeshore. You'll arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive.

Day 5: Masai Mara National Reserve

You'll depart early in the morning 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. You'll arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive.

Dinner and your overnight stay at the campsite or lodge.
Accommodation: Ilkeliani Camp

Meals & Drinks: All meals included

Day 6-7: Masai Mara National Reserve

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

Dinner and your overnight stay will be at the campsite or lodge.
