Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi

After landing at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be transferred to your hotel in Nairobi. Spend the day relaxing at the hotel or at the shopping mall next door.

Overnight at Trademark Hotel in Nairobi

Day 2: Meru National Park

From Nairobi, you will drive through the Great Rift Valley, which is a breathtaking journey of viewpoints and endless escarpments. After two hours on the road, volcanos will begin to take over, and their iconic shapes will guide you into Meru National Park for a full afternoon on safari.

On your first Kenyan game drive, you can encounter a wide variety of large mammals that patrol their natural habitat. Elephants and buffalos will be very common and are typically spotted in large herds. Wildebeests and zebras may graze the open plains, and these will most likely be your first of many sightings. Down by a river, you can spot hippos as they wade and wallow in the water before encountering lions and hyenas on the woodland fringes. Hopefully, this first game drive will bring some cheetah experiences or sightings of Meru’s leopards.

You will return to your accommodation and spend the night at a small camp inside the national park, where you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of a revitalized wilderness.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight at Rhino River Camp or similar

Day 3: Meru National Park

Few places in Africa can compare with Meru. Scarcely visited but thriving with life, this national park will immerse you in the true African wilderness. You can travel slowly through a thick jungle in search of strange antelope. Reedbuck and hartebeest will be featured as you cross khaki-toned grasslands, and luscious swamps are a haven for birdlife. It is on the grasslands where you will find cheetahs. The spotted hunter tends to camouflage themselves in the grass before accelerating across open space. This day is yours to explore the Meru National Park.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight at Rhino River Camp or similar

Day 4: Samburu National Park

Samburu is a haven for some of Africa’s rarest species. Reticulated giraffes will be memorable for their incredibly bright markings, and Grevy’s zebras can be seen as they graze alongside Burchell’s zebra, which is one of the only places in Africa where the two zebra species overlap. The spectacular new antelope that you will encounter is probably a Beisa oryx with spiraled horns that point skyward and a beautiful face. You should also spot gerenuk, which is a bizarre antelope with a neck like a giraffe and a body like a gazelle. Have your hot lunch at the lodge and then continue your game drive into the evening in search of some nocturnal behaviour before indulging in dinner at the lodge.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight at Samburu Simba lodge or similar

Day 5: Samburu National Park

After breakfast proceed with picnic lunch boxes for a full day game drive from 0700hrs to 1830hrs and spend more time exploring all the Samburu national park has to offer.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight at Samburu Simba lodge or similar

Day 6: Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Chimpanzees are not native to Kenya, but a chimpanzee sanctuary has been offering refuge for orphaned chimps from areas of rampant poaching with the long-term aim of returning them to the wild. Peering into their captivating faces, you will be able to witness how precious these mammals really are.

Rhinos are native to this area, and Ol Pejeta is one of the few places where black and white rhinos roam side by side. Black rhinos are browsers, so they mostly inhabit bushland and forest fringes; white rhinos are almost double the size and graze, so they are encountered on a more open savannah. Luckily for you, both species move in sight of each other here, and you will even be provided with the opportunity to walk in the rhino sanctuary.

The afternoon is yours to explore this conservancy.
Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight at Serena Sweetwater’s

Day 7: Masai Mara National Park

Masai Mara National Park, an undisputed paradise for the sheer quantity and variety of wildlife. Renowned for its lions and for the annual Great Wildebeest Migration, Kenya's greatest reserve is as magical as your wildest safari dreams. The wildlife is abundant and the gentle rolling grasslands ensure that animals are never out of sight. Birds, too, are prolific. Including migrants, well over 450 species have been recorded, among them, 57 species of birds of prey. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot, and well-spread rainfall year-round. Rain, when it falls almost always chooses the late afternoon or night. Between July and October, when the great wildebeest migration is in the Masai Mara National Reserve, the sensation is unparalleled.

Post your lunch at the lodge, at around 1630hrs proceed for a sunset game drive.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight at Mara Sopa lodge or similar
