Kenya is the home of the Safari. For over a hundred years Kenya has attracted adventurers and romantics from all over the globe. The romance of sundown drinks, of evenings around a campfire and nights under canvas with the distant roar of a lion in the African night can still be found in Kenya.

Day 1: Arrival for Kenya Big Five Safari – Africa Big Five Tour.
Arrive in Kenya, you will meet your guide then transfer to the hotel. Depending on the time of arrival, you visit Nairobi National Park or the National Museum of Kenya. Nairobi National Park established in 1746, is today Kenya’s oldest Game Park. Lying only 7 km away from Nairobi capital city, the park surprisingly still has varied habitats which include open, rolling grass plains, riverine woodland, valley thicket and bush, artificial dams and ponds, rocky gorges and upland dry forest. The park is fenced along three sides, where it is adjacent to urban housing, industry, roads and airports; only the southern border, along the Embakasi and Athi rivers, is open for animal dispersal. The park has healthy populations of big game among which include Zebras, Wildebeests, Elands which are July–August migrants into the park and African Lions, Cape Buffaloes, Leopards, Nile Crocodiles, Cheetahs, Hippopotamus and some more who are residents. The park is a rhino sanctuary and numbers of the Black Rhino are steadily increasing. Overnight at Nairobi Safari Club.

Days 2-3: Transfer to Samburu Game Reserve.
After breakfast, we head north to Samburu Game Reserve. Game drives at Amboseli will target species confined to this area in Kenya among which include; Gravy’s zebra, Giraffe-necked gazelle (Gerenuk) and the Beisa Oryx. Other species go along. Overnight at Samburu Sopa Lodge.

Day 4: Transfer to Mount Kenya for an Overnight.
We have breakfast in the morning, and then transfer to Mount Kenya National Park. The park was named after mountain Kenya- Mountain Kenya at 5,199m is Kenya’ highest mountain and also Africa’ second highest after Mount Kilimanjaro.
This site boost health wildlife, during this short stay, expect to pocket Black-and-white Colobus Monkey, Sykes monkey, Bushbuck, Cape Buffalo, African Elephant, Olive Baboon, Waterbuck, Black Rhino, Leopard, Giant Forest Hog, Genet Cat, Bush Pig, Spotted Hyena and many more. Overnight at Mountain Lodge.

Day 5: Transfer to Lake Nakuru for Bird Watching.
This morning we transfer to one of the world’s most popular bird sanctuaries- Lake Nakuru. Over one million flamingoes at the site turn the shores of Lake Nakuru into a floating pink carpet. The park is a sanctuary for the Black Rhino and White Rhino, the latter introduced from South Africa.
Rothschild’s Giraffe was also introduced into the park in 1977. The rare Ethiopian Large-eared Roundleaf Bat is resident. Other large mammals, some recently reintroduced, include African Lion, Cape buffalo, Leopard, Black-and-white Colobus Monkey in the forest, the Common Eland, Steinbok, Impala, Chandler's Reedbuck, Dikdik in the bush-land along with the Rock hyrax and the Klipspringer on the cliffs and escarpment. Overnight at Lake Nakuru Lodge.

Day 6: Kenya Tour to Masai Mara National Park – Kenya Wildlife Safaris.
Have breakfast then transfer to Masai Mara Game reserve. This park is the world’s most famous for big game viewing! The reserve is located app. 275 km from Nairobi, was opened in November 1974 and has since become Kenya's most famous and popular animal reserve. Simply the best big-game country in Kenya and should not be missed on a Kenya Safari.
The park is remarkable for its great concentration of large herbivores and their attendant predators. The extraordinary annual migration of over 1.5 million Wildebeests and over 200,000 Grant's zebra that starts from the Serengeti plains to the Mara grasslands from late June is world famous. There are also large numbers or the African Elephant, African Lion, Hippopotamuses and the Nile crocodile in the huge Musiara Swamp, Topi, Gazelles, a number of primates, and many more. We have lunch enroute and an afternoon game drive in the afternoon. Overnight at Masai Mara Sopa Lodge.

Day 7: Masai Mara Wildlife Viewing Tour - Kenya Safaris.
In the morning session, we do a game drive through the Mara plains; enjoy game, botany, avifauna, Scenery and much more. After lunch at the lodge, we visit the famous Masai people in the afternoon. The Masai Mara Safari would seem incomplete without an encounter with the legendary Masai people from which the reserve derives the name. They are strongly independent people, still paying a lot of attention to their traditional rituals. Strikingly tall and slender, swathed in brilliant locally made red cloth, hung about with beads and metal jewellery. Young men prefer long, plaited, ochre-daubed hairstyles and have a formidable reputation for glamour, prowess and ferocity. Traditionally the Maasai live off the milk and blood of their beloved cattle and believe that all the cattle in the world are theirs. The Masai People believe, they are not just residents of this area but are much a part of the life of the land as the land is part of their lives. Overnight at Masai Mara Sopa Lodge.
