Trip Summary

On this 14 Day wildlife immersed journey….. the focus is solely on Kenya.  Experience the incredible annual wildlife migrations in Kenya, travel across spectacular scenery in the ‘born free’ countryside of Shaba and Samburu National Park.   The intra-continental ridge system of the Great Rift Valley is a staggering sight. Enjoy game drives throughout East Africa’s diverse wildlife reserves and national parks including Lake Nakuru National Park and Tsavo East (extension only). Spot incredible numbers of wildlife at the waterholes and grasslands of the northern section of the Serengeti Plain. The Maasai Mara National Park will be a highlight to remember as is enjoying a traditional tribal dance performance. A fantastic wildlife safari.

If you want to see more of Kenya, why not extend your stay to 17 Days.  The extra four days will include Kenya’s largest National Park; Tsavo East.  The ‘Big Five’ including the Maasai lion are often spotted on the semi-arid grasslands, thorny scrublands and savannahs.  Maybe its the elephants covered in the reddened earth or the crocodile infested pools that you want to see, then it will be worth the extra days away for those treasured memories.

14 Day Kenya Safari

DAY 1 Australia to Nairobi via Johannesburg.

DAY 2 On arrival in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, you will be met by your experienced tour guide. Enjoy a restful afternoon on the outskirts of Nairobi city centre.

DAY 3 Depart to Aberdare National Park, have lunch near Nyeri. Then you are taken to Treetops to overnight. The floodlit waterhole attracts a host of wildlife. The cabins are fitted with buzzers to announce the arrival of one of the ‘Big Five’ at the water hole during the night. BLD

DAY 4 Cross the equator on the way north. Visit Samburu or Shaba and Buffalo Springs National Reserves, a semi-desert area of Kenya. In this dry land the forested river banks are excellent areas to see wildlife, as all animals congregate here to drink. Enjoy a game drive. Spend two nights in a game reserve. BLD

DAY 5 Morning and afternoon game drive. You may see animals not found in other parts of Africa; the reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich and the Grevy’s zebra, crocodiles, hippos and other wildlife are often spotted at the river at dawn. BLD

DAY 6 Driving south, you may have the opportunity to view Mount Kenya (5,199 m). It is permanently covered with glaciers and snow. Enjoy lunch overlooking Ewaso Nyiro River. Overnight in the Aberdare National Park. BLD

DAYS 7 – 8 Descend into the Rift Valley, one of the most prominent features on the surface of the earth, which stretches over 8,700 km. Game drives through Lake Nakuru National Park, famous for its flocks of over one million flamingoes, are also included. Opportunities to see lion, rhino and hopefully even leopard. Witness amazing sunsets, stay for two nights at Lake Nakuru. BLD

DAYS 9 – 11 Drive from the Rift Valley to the Maasai Mara National Reserve in the northern section of the Serengeti Plain, home to the greatest concentration of African wildlife. Visiting the world famous Maasai Mara is an adventure. It provides the invitation to experience the thrills and excitement of being amongst and viewing the plains’ abundant game. Wildebeest, zebra and buffalo can be seen in large herds. The plains also host the big cats; lion, leopard and cheetah. Between game drives relax with a drink, dip in the pool or see a traditional tribal dance.
