On this Kenya Safari, we will take you to the most well-known national parks in Kenya. With epic wildlife safaris in the iconic Masai Mara Game Reserve, the stunning Lake Nakuru NP, and a boat safari on Lake Naivasha this will be an African adventure you won’t soon forget.
Day 1: Welcome to Kenya
On arrival at Jomo Kenyatta international airport you will be met by a representative who will pick you up and drive you to your accommodation in Karen, a peaceful suburb to Nairobi, named after one of its former residents, the author Karen Blixen.
Hotel Rudi is close to several tourist attractions like Nairobi National Park, the Giraffe Centre, the Elephant Orphanage at Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the Karen Blixen Museum and the Bomas of Kenya. Depending on your time of arrival you can visit these sites today. All activities today are at your own expense.
Day 2: Game Drive in Lake Nakuru National Park
Your guide will pick you up at the hotel today at 8 am. That’s the safari cycle, early to bed and early to rise, to make the most out of your day!
Today’s destination is Lake Nakuru National Park. The drive is spectacular with scenic stops along the way at Thomson Falls and the Rift Valley view point.
On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. You will enjoy the ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for game drives, bird watching and hiking.

Day 3: To the Masai Mara
After an early breakfast you will head to the world-renowned Masai Mara Game Reserve. Located in southwestern Kenya, on the border with Tanzania, the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking views, endless plains and an excellent year-round concentration of wildlife. In the months of July-October it is also home to over two million Wildebeest making their yearly trek north from the Serengeti in Tanzania.

Day 4 & 5: Full Day Game Drives in Masai Mara
Sunrise is a great time for wildlife spotting as animals tend to be the most active during the “golden hours”, when the first rays of sunshine come to rest on the savannah. Few predators hunt during the heat of the day, so the early morning is the best time to observe the thrill of the chase, or at least the aftermath of a hunt.
For your safari adventure over the next two days you can decide if you want to take a packed lunch for a full day game drive or come back to the camp for a hot lunch before returning to the bush in the afternoon.

Day 6: Boat Safari on Lake Naivasha
Before departing the Masai Mara today you will be invited by the lodge to plant a tree as your Kenya Safari memory. The nature around the lodge used to be dry and desert like. With sustainable practices and dedication to nature this family-owned lodge has managed to grow a whole forest, eventually bringing water and wildlife back to the area. Planting your own tree is a nice way to give back to the land that has given you a piece of itself over the past couple of days.

Day 7: Return to Nairobi

Depending on the departure time of your international flight, there may be some time to do an optional activity near Lake Naivasha or in Nairobi. All activities today are at your own expense. As you finish your Kenya Safari, your driver/guide will take care of your transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
