Day 1
You will be met at Nairobi Airport and transferred to your hotel in this bustling city.
 
Check in and relax in your warm and friendly African surroundings.
Day 2
Transfer to Wilson Airport in Nairobi for your light aircraft flight to Samburu National Reserve.
 
Check into your lodge and relax beside the river, before setting out for a game drive in the late afternoon in this wonderful wildlife conservation region.
Day 3
Enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives today in Samburu National Reserve, one of the two reserves in which conservationists Joy and George Adamson raised Elsa the lioness, made famous in the book and award winning movie "Born Free".
 
Situated in the hot and arid northern region of Kenya, this reserve is located within the tribal lands of the colorful and semi-nomadic Samburu people, who are close relatives of the Maasai. The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife found only north of the equator - including the strange gerenuk, which stands upright on its spindly hind legs to browse from trees, the large Grevy's zebra, the reticulated giraffe and beisa oryx.
 
Crocodiles and hippo can be found in the broad Ewaso Ngiro River that runs through the park, as well as large herds of elephants and buffalo along its banks. You can also hope to see lion, cheetah, Grants gazelle, the small dik dik and waterbuck, as well as Somali ostrich and over 350 different bird species. By arrangement with your lodge, it is also possible to visit a local Samburu village.
Day 4
After an early morning game drive in Samburu, transfer to your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Masai people and the Mara River that divides the park.
 
Masai Mara National Park is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest from the adjoining Serengeti National Park. This phenomenon occurs every year from July to October, when game migrates along a circular route from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again in search of fresh pastures, followed by hungry predators - most notably lions and hyena.
 
After checking into your lodge, enjoy a late afternoon game drive.
Day 5
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara.
 
Nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley, Masai Mara National Park is famous for its many prides of lions, packs of hyena and other predators - as well as huge herds of wildebeest, which number over one million, zebra and giraffe. All the Big Five can be seen here, as well as numerous other species including the Thomson's gazelle, topi, kongoni, impala, roan antelope and hippo. The nocturnal bat-eared fox, rarely found elsewhere in Kenya, also inhabits this park as well as the endangered cheetah and black rhino. Bird watching is also excellent with over 450 different species including the vulture, marabou stork, secretary bird, hornbill, crowned crane, ostrich, long-crested eagle and african pygmy-falcon.
 
Set off early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view the abundant wildlife of the Masai Mara region. Return to the lodge to rest in the heat of the day, before setting off again in the late afternoon for another game drive.
Day 6
Enjoy an early morning game drive in the Masai Mara, before your light aircraft flight to Amboseli National Park where you will be met at the airstrip and transferred to your lodge.
 
Situated in southern Kenya on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, this national park offers magnificent views of the peak in neighbouring Tanzania. In the early morning it is a wonderful experience to see Kilimanjaro hovering above the clouds and animal photography against this dramatic backdrop is particularly rewarding.
Day 7
Rise early today to enjoy a game drive in Amboseli National Park, particularly renowned for its large herds of elephants.
 
The local people are mainly Maasai and this sanctuary offers a fantastic array of wildlife. With a dramatic contrast  between its dry lake beds and watery swamps, you should see buffalo, black and white rhino, zebra, wildebeest and much more - as this low rainfall area is one of the best game viewing regions in the whole of Kenya.
 
Return to your lodge for relaxation, before returning to Amboseli National Park in the late afternoon for another game drive.
Day 8
Enjoy some final game viewing in Amboseli National Park, before your light aircraft flight to Wilson Airport.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to Nairobi Airport for your flight home.
