This safari includes four of Kenya’s most wonderful and very different safari areas. You will get a great insight into just how varied Kanya’s landscapes and nature are, and how rich and diverse the animal life that lives here can be.

The lush Aberdares and the beauty of Samburu

After touching down in Nairobi you will head for the beautiful and lush Aberdare-highlands, where you will have time to relax after your flight. From the Aberdares your tour goes north to the rugged, but eternally beautiful Samburu, before again heading for the dense forests of the Mount Kenya area where you will stay in a lodge in the forest.

Experience the Rift Valley and the magical Masai Mara

In the Rift Valley you will experience Lake Nakuru-  with its many flamingos being one of its many attractions. Your safari adventure ends in the magical Masai Mara, Kenya’s part of the Serengeti-ecosystem, where you can still feel the Kenya that was so much loved by Karen Blixen.

Good accommodation, perfectly located

Naturally we have chosen accommodation of a high standard, which of course is also perfectly placed in the different areas. In this may you can be sure of having the best chance of experiencing the nature and wildlife at very close quarters.

Possibility for a beach holiday on the shores of the Indian Ocean

After your safari you can, for example, book a beach holiday next to the Indian Ocean. From the Masai Mara you can choose to fly directly to Nairobi or in just two hours travel directly to the coast. By flying directly to the coast you can save a good 10 hours of transport time when compared to driving to Nairobi and then flying from there. This must be booked and paid for before your departure from home.

DAY 3: FROM THE ABERDARES TO SAMBURU

After breakfast you will head north from the beautiful Aberdare-highlands and drive to Samburu, where you will notice a change in climate from the cool highlands, to the hot, dry and very beautiful lowland of the north.

En route, close to the town of Nanyuki, you will cross the equator, before driving further, through the town of Isiolo to the Samburu nature reserve. The last part of the journey will give you a real taste of the dry and very hot surrounding landscape we are heading to.

The coming days offer safari-drives in Samburu, including drives along the brown life-giving waters of the river that flows through the district that attracts many animals. In Samburu you have a good chance of seeing leopard, as well as large herds of elephants, cheetah, lions and giraffe.

Accommodation is provided at Ashnil Samburu Camp, which is located right next to the river. You will sleep in attractive, large safari tents with en suite facilities. All tents have their own terrace and a view over the river.

DAY 5: FROM SAMBURU TO THE FORESTS OF MOUNT KENYA

From the hot, scenic lowlands the tour now takes us to the highlands of Mount Kenya, where we will drive through dense, lush forests to where the tree-top hotel, Serena Mountain Lodge, awaits us.

We will arrive in the lodge in time for lunch, which lies on the slopes of Mount Kenya itself.

After we arrive in the hotel we have plenty of time during the rest of the day to watch the wildlife from the many different parts of the hotel - and not least - to soak in the many impressions, sounds and smells of the forest.

On payment of a small supplement it is possible to arrange a walking safari in the forest in the company of a local guide.

Overnight at Serena Mountain Lodge with full-board.

DAY 6: FROM MOUNT KENYA’S FORESTS TO LAKE NAKURU AND THEN LAKE NAIVASHA

After breakfast we leave the lush highlands and set course to the most famous of all the Rift Valley lakes, Lake Nakuru.

There we start with lunch at Lake Nakuru Lodge, after which we take a safari drive in this small, but extremely charming park. Lake Nakuru is famous for having both white and black rhinos, its large numbers of flamingos and the rare Rothschild-giraffe.

After our exciting safari-drive we will drive to the neighbouring Lake Naivasha,  which is just less than an hour away. On the way to Naivasha we will drive past some large flower farms where many of the roses we buy in Europe are grown.

We stay for the night at Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge, which is situated in a beautiful park like garden on the shores of Lake Naivasha itself. The lodge is often visited by giraffes, zebras and a number of different antelopes that come here to graze. At night hippos also come and visit, which is why you will always be accompanied to your room by a Masai guard in the evening.

Overnight at Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge with full-board.

DAY 7: FROM LAKE NAIVASHA TO THE MASAI MARA

Our route now takes us towards Masai country. After a few hours driving the fertile soils of central Kenya give way to a more savannah-like landscape. Especially once we have passed the busy Masai “capital” of Narok, the countryside quickly becomes more influenced by grass savannah, with acacia trees dotting the landscape, and more frequent sightings of the Masai people and wild animals.

We will arrive in the lodge for a late lunch, and there will be time for a safari-drive in the afternoon.

Overnight in the beautifully situated Ashnil Mara Camp with full board.

DAY 8: SAFARI DRIVES IN THE MASAI MARA

You will go on safari twice today, and you will have the chance of seeing all the animals that you associate with Africa. “The Big Five”: Elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo are all here, as are cheetah, hyena, wild dogs and large numbers of gazelles, antelope, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest.

In the season from July to October the Mara is host to the great migration of 1.5 million wildebeest and 250,000 zebra. An absolutely extraordinary spectacle.

Overnight in the Ashnil Mara Camp with full board.
