Day

JAMBO - KARIBU!! You will be warmly met upon arrival at the airport with our traditional, unique & special welcome (bubbly, hot/cold towels and presentation of authentic safari hat and souvenirs). Depart from Nairobi this morning and drive to the lower slopes of Mt. Kenya arriving at your Tree Lodge in time for lunch. Afternoon proceed on a forest nature walk with a professional (armed) guide. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight floodlit game viewing.

NOTE: A warm jacket/sweater and a good pair of hiking boots is highly recommended.

  • stay at : Mountain Lodge

After breakfast drive down the scenic Great Rift Valley with breath-taking views of Mt Longonot and Lake Naivasha on your way to Lake Nakuru to arrive in time for lunch. Afternoon proceed on a game viewing drive circumventing Lake Nakuru. The lake is situated in the heart of the Rift Valley and is one Kenya's most famous soda lakes. A major feature of this park is the bird life and it is world renowned as the home for millions of Flamingos. A rhino sanctuary also provides the opportunity to see the greatly endangered black rhino. Return to the camp/lodge for dinner and overnight.

  • stay at : Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge , Sarova Lionhill Lodge or Mbweha Camp

After breakfast depart for Kenya's famous game reserve. You start the day venturing through the Great Rift Valley travelling to the northern most extension of the Serengeti Plains and one of the richest wildlife Game Reserves, the Masai Mara. The Mara is home to the awesome black-manned lion, the elusive leopard, stately giraffes, vast herds of elephants, rhino, thundering herds of zebra, migrating wildebeest and numerous other plains game. You arrive at the camp for a late lunch. After lunch depart for an afternoon game-viewing drive. Enjoy dinner and overnight at the camp/lodge.

  • stay at : Mara Sopa Lodge, Sarova Mara Camp or Tipilikwani Luxury Tented Camp

Enjoy an early morning breakfast and a full morning’s game viewing drive to return for lunch. Experience the friendly atmosphere where the Masai community lives in harmony with wild game. After lunch visit a traditional Masai Manyatta (off the beaten track) and experience the culture of this world famous community. The Masai still live as they did for centuries - Interact with these nomadic people and experience their way of life as you learn about their customs and traditions. Continue with the afternoon game viewing as you return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

OPTIONAL ACTIVITY: Today’s adventure begins just before dawn. Flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crew inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies and the hot air balloon fills then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-coloured canopy, you're off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. Apart from the occasional hiss of the burners, a lion's roar, elephants crashing through the bush, baboons perched in the tips of the trees startled and screeching to see something above them, the flight above the Masai Mara plains is magically silent. At the end of the flight, the passengers are treated to a champagne breakfast in the bush, complete with flowers. China and crystal are set out on the table that is placed under a convenient acacia tree. The finishing touch to the flight is a game drive back to the camp, and the possibility of seeing the same pride of lions, or herd of elephants that had been viewed while ballooning. A flight certificate is issued on completion of the balloon safari. Back at Camp enjoy a sumptuous lunch and a well deserved rest.

  • stay at : Mara Sopa Lodge, Sarova Mara Camp or Tipilikwani Luxury Tented Camp

This morning we enjoy our breakfast then check-out. Unbelievable but true, our good bush moments have come to an end. We bid farewell to our wonderful lodge manager and his team then depart back to Nairobi. Not empty handed though. With us are photographs – a capture of the special moments we have had on this tour to immortalize the experience. Our guide driver will drop you at the Jomo Kenyatta International airport for your onward flight.
