Day

JAMBO - KARIBU!! Twiga Tours representatives will warmly meet you upon arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International airport with our traditional, unique & special welcome (bubbly, wet towels and presentation of authentic safari hat and a beautiful authentic canvas pouch filled with safari essentials). We will then transfer you to the Sarova Stanley Hotel, located in the heart of the central business district. Overnight at the hotel.

Depart Nairobi after breakfast and drive north through the cool Kenya highlands via Nyeri town to arrive at Aberdare Country Club in time for lunch. Rest of the afternoon at leisure enjoying the beautiful views from the club or talking a walk within the sanctuary that boasts of lots of giraffes among other herbivorous wildlife. Dinner and overnight at the Club.

Enjoy breakfast at the Club then proceed further north to Shaba Game Reserve arriving at the Sarova Shaba Game Lodge to a warm welcome then lunch. Enjoy an afternoon game viewing drive. The greater Samburu region is the best place to find several endemic Northern species; including the Gerenuk (twiga gazelle) due to her long neck, the beisa Oryx, the Reticulated Giraffe, the Somali ostrich and Grevy’s Zebra. Samburu is also an ornithological paradise, home to many birds including local species such as the Palm Nut Vulture and the Vivacious Dove. Enjoy dinner and overnight at your lodge.

After your hearty breakfast, depart for your full day game viewing with picnic boxes to the rugged Samburu and Buffalo Springs game reserves. Leopards are often seen at dusk. The Samburu culture is a truly fascinating one, sharing a great deal of ancestral and linguistic ties to the Maasai. The entire Samburu region is a place of breathtaking and magical beauty, a place where the vision of a deep red sunset silhouetting the doum palms along the river as a leopard emerges to hunt brings the perfect end to a day on safari. Return back to Shaba Game Reserve for dinner and overnight at your lodge.

A hearty early morning breakfast then drive to the Masai Mara National Reserve, offering wonderful scenery and plenty of game. We arrive at the intimate, 20-tent Tipilikwani Camp to a very warm welcome for lunch, some leisure. This afternoon is the moment we have been longing for – we depart on an exciting game viewing drive. The Rolling plains and grasslands, stretching far into the horizons as far as the eye can see is home to the black-manned lion, the savannah elephant, the Cape buffalo, wildebeetes,the elusive leopard,cheetah,the spotted & stripped hyena, the rhino,topi,burchelle’s zebra, the Maasai giraffe among many others. The Mara game reserve is one that can never disappoint. One is spoilt by the variety of bird and wildlife species in this game reserve….. For a long time, Mara Game Reserve has stubbed her authority as the ‘granary’ of wildlife in Kenya. We return back to the camp for dinner and overnight.

This morning after breakfast, we drive to Lake Nakuru National Park. After breakfast we depart for Lake Nakuru National Park with a brief stop at the Thompson's Falls for a breath-taking view of the great scenery. We arrive for lunch. We arrive at the lodge to a very warm welcome, check-in then lunch at Sarova Lion Hill Lodge. This afternoon we depart on a game viewing drive to introduce you to the game in the area. Enjoy dinner and overnight at the Lodge.

After breakfast, proceed on a long morning game viewing drive within the park. Some of the interesting places to visit include the baboon cliff, the lion hill and the Mau escarpment. The park is one of the best game viewing parks with various animal species including prides of lion, Cape buffalo, waterbucks, wart hogs, the endangered Rothschild giraffes, the black & white Rhino, the Burchell’s zebra, impalas, and the elusive leopard among many others. Over 300 bird species have been recorded here too. Lake Nakuru National Park is one of the best places to see the endangered black and white Rhino. Enjoy dinner and overnight at our Lodge.

Sumptuous breakfasts then we depart for a full day adventure. Be on the look-out for the big five that Masai Mara is famous for. These include the lion, savannah (African) elephant, the Cape buffalo, the leopard and the black rhino. In the early 20th century, Kenya was a famous hunting destination. Killing any of the big five game one pride, a sense of class, a feeling of heroism. We may even be so lucky to witness a leopard or a cheetah sprint and make a kill! We return back to the camp for dinner and overnight.

OPTIONAL ACTIVITY:
a) Balloon Safari over the Mara plains
b) Visit a traditional Masai Manyatta (off the beaten track) and experience the culture of this world famous community.

It is also an ornithological paradise with over 400 species of birds, flora and fauna and some of the most soul-searing views in Africa. Enjoy dinner and overnight at your lodge.

Morning and afternoon game viewing drives. Amboseli offers some of the most breath-taking views in Africa. Her scenery - one of the best places for a photogenic view of Mount Kilimanjaro (weather permitting) is next to none. This is best seen on a clear day. Amboseli National Park provides the classic Hollywood image of Africa. The park is famous for her large herds of giant elephants. Enjoy meals and overnight at the lodge.

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.
