7 days Amboseli Tsavo West Lake Nakuru Masai Mara safari

A great safari experience to Amboseli, Tsavo west, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara national parks endowed with abundant wild life & bird life

Day 1: Nairobi/Amboseli National Park

Pick up from the airport and have breakfast in a hotel near the airport. After breakfast drive along Mombasa road via Emali town to Amboseli in time for lunch at your lodge. We have afternoon gamedrive with the photo scenic Mt. Kilimanjaro in the background starting 16.00 hours.

Amboseli (392 sq km) is not a big park but supported by swampy vegetation it harbours elephants, buffaloes, hippos, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, gazelles, wildebeests, warthogs, zebras, ostriches and Masai giraffes in the background of the magnificent snow caped Mt. Kilimanjaro. The waters from melted snow find their way down the mountain under lava flows and surface on the Amboseli plains in form of swamps. Overnight at your Lodge (LD)

Day 2: Amboseli/Tsavo West

Have early morning game drive at 6.00hours. After breakfast we head for Tsavo West National Park. Visit the Chyulu Hills and the Mzima Springs which are favourite haunts for both the hippo and crocodile, which can be seen from an underwater observation chamber. Dinner and overnight at your lodger (BLD)

Day 3: Tsavo West

Day spent exploring Tsavo West including the nature trails. Tsavo west is not a place where animals can be readily seen due to heavy undergrowth and hence a little patience and effort is required to spot the game. However there is compensation for that in scenic landscapes, a bit wilder animals and less tourist traffic than the other famous parks. Overnight at your lodge (BLD)

Day 4: Tsavo West/ Lake Nakuru

We depart at 7.00 am for Nakuru National Park to arrive at your tented lodge by lunch hour. Have lunch followed by afternoon tour of Lake Nakuru which is a seasonal home for millions of pink flamingos and many other species of birds. Lake Nakuru is also a rhino sanctuary with both black and white rhinos. Lake Nakuru also harbours lions, warthogs, waterbucks, buffaloes, hippo and many other animals. Overnight at your lodge (BLD)

Day 5: Nakuru/Masai Mara

Day 6: Masai Mara

Morning and afternoon gamedrive to experience the Masai Mara magic!
