Tour Summary

The friendly and striking country of Kenya offers a holiday for every traveller. Discover The Beauty of Kenya, this is one destination not to be missed. While the Masai Mara and its annual natural migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle is one of the country’s biggest attractions, the rest of Kenya is brimming with other amazing sites, steeped in ancient history and culture. The Great Rift Valley can be observed from the moon and is home to the Kenya lake system, a natural property of outstanding beauty, compromising three interlinked lakes. Bird life abounds here, while hippo, giraffe, buffalo and zebra thrive in the surrounding swamps and grasslands. The Aberdare mountain range forms part of the eastern end of the Great Rift Valley and is a region of unusual vegetation, rugged terrain and crystal clear streams and waterfalls that combine to create an area of great scenic beauty. Mombasa is the last leg of your journey where you can revel in water sports, fishing, whale watching and gorgeous sandy beaches.

Day 2 : Nairobi – Aberdare National Park

After breakfast, drive from Nairobi to Aberdare National Park. The main road heads north to Thika, the heart of pineapple growing country, then continues northwards through the lush, green countryside whilst ascending into the central highlands. The fertile volcanic soil and good rainfall makes this a densely cultivated area. Approximate journey time 3 hours-4 hours, depending on the destination. Route details and journey times may vary depending on road conditions.  Later in the afternoon, discover the Aberdare. The park might be small in size but Kenya’s Aberdare National Park provides a vastly different experience to the country’s more famous savannah reserves. Created to protect the Aberdare Mountains of the Central Highlands, it comprises two ecosystems unusual to Kenya: a moorland plateau and a swathe of dense rainforest. The result is that visitors on an Aberdare safari can expect not only unique and spectacular landscapes but will also enjoy good game viewing particularly in the Salient, the eastern forested section.

At 0700hrs, Drive from the Central Highlands to Lake Nakuru. The road heads generally west, running around the north-eastern slopes of the Aberdares to Nyahururu from where it descends to Nakuru in the heart of the Lake area, with Bogoria and Baringo to the north and Elementaita and Naivasha to the south. Approximate journey time 2 hours – 3.5 hours, depending on the destination. Route details and journey times may vary depending on road conditions. Arrive at Lake Nakuru Lodge for check-in and later in the afternoon, Discover Lake Nakuru National Park. Created in 1961 to protect the alkaline lake of the same name, the park offers typical plains vegetation. Located 156 km northwest of Nairobi, Lake Nakuru derives its name from the Masai word “Enakuro” which means cloud of dust. It is home to many herbivores including Rothschild’s giraffe, buffalo, hippo, gazelle and nearly 55 mammals including lions, leopards, spotted hyenas, rock hyraxes and reedbuck. Lake Nakuru National Park is famous for hosting both white and black rhinoceros, reintroduced after many years’ absences. Further renowned for the dwarf flamingos that congregate by the thousands on the shores of the lake, the park also hosts over 400 species of birds: herons, ospreys, cormorants… Many are migratory birds from the northern hemisphere.

South of Naivasha the road turns west to Narok then continues west and south to the Masai Mara. Approximate journey time 4-9 hours, depending on the destination in the Mara. Route details and journey times may vary depending on road conditions. Arrive at Mara Sopa Lodge for check-in and later in the afternoon game drive in the Masai Mara National Reserve. Immerse yourself in this prime wildlife area and connect with nature on every level. Variety is what distinguishes the exceptional from the mundane and this reserve offers copious amounts of variation. Your afternoon drive will begin late in the day and conclude just before darkness falls. This is the best time of day to view nocturnal hunters who prepare for their nightly expeditions. Watering holes are also usually busy just before sunset as animals such as hippos return to their resting spots while others congregate to drink before retiring for the night. Keep your camera handy to capture everything from elephants to gazelles and crocodiles to lions.

Day 5 : Masai Mara National Reserve – Full Day

Discover the Masai Mara National Reserve, the most famous and most visited reserve in Kenya. Covering an area of 1510 km2, the Masai Mara reserve is in fact the extension in Kenyan territory of the vast Serengeti Park in Tanzania. Together, they constitute a huge ecosystem in which animals move freely. All large African animals are present. Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, impala, Kirk’s dik-dik, bushbuck, topi, buffalo, ellipsen waterbuck, eland and giraffe, all are there. Famous for its rich wildlife, the Masai Mara is home to not only the “Big 5” (elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard) but also many birds (over 500 species of birds have been recorded). Along the rivers, crocodiles and hippos lie in wait. Composed of vast rolling plains and hills, the Masai Mara is dotted with umbrella thorn acacias and thorny thickets. In the Maa language, Mara means “spotted” and may refer to the colourful landscapes. Alternatively the name may refer to the arrival of over two million herbivores during the annual migration (wildebeest, gazelles and zebras).


Masai Mara

Optional Activity : Hot Air Balloon Ride or Maasai Village visit!

You can take to the skies with a hot air balloon safari that will see you soar above all of the action. Ask your safari expert about adding a hot air balloon adventure to your safari.

Route details and journey times may vary depending on road conditions. Discover the Amboseli National Park. Located about 250 km from Nairobi and along the Tanzanian border, the park derives its name from the Masai word “Empusel”, meaning salty, dusty place. Declared a national park in 1974 to protect its unique and fragile ecosystem, the Amboseli National Park offers landscapes of remarkable contrasts: arid zones alongside the lush oases of the swamps. The ecosystem of this low rainfall region depends on water from Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 m).

The climate in Kenya is mainly characterized by warm days, but early mornings and evenings can be cool, so dress in layers. You may want to carry a sweater for the cooler nights. If you plan to do a walking safari, make sure you have comfortable closed walking shoes. Allow for more conservative dress when walking in towns. Dining is usually smart casual.

The sun is strong so sun block is recommended. A hat and sunglasses would also be a good idea. Also, with the changing climate, and you may even encounter some rain, so do carry something for this. Most hotels have a laundry service; however, please check to ensure that it can be delivered before your check-out time.

“The Timings were all perfect”
Reviewed May 18, 2017

Just to express that we got back from Tanzania and Kenya yesterday, and what a Trip! The lodges and camps we stayed were all luxury; the staff at both lodges were more than friendly, the locations were awesome and the wildlife was incredibly stunning! We arrived at the Keekorok Lodge in Masai Mara, wondering if the migrations would be a very hard activity to follow, only to find was the most stunning wild trail right in front of the lodge with wide views. It was great! We did not experience any troubles during our safari. All the flight connections and tour coordination you arranged went smoothly. The Timings were all perfect. We more so enjoyed the private charter flight back Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and course Wildlife in Masai Mara and Tsavo park was fascinating. We spotted the leopard 12 times in two game parks. Our guide helped us to track down all the big five. Hard to imagine a better experience but this one surpassed it all. We are again planning when we could go back to Amboseli, Serengeti, Rwanda and Zanzibar. We appreciate with a lot of thanks for your travel expert who helped us in exploring many options to put together such a lifetime adventure.

“Exceeded my wildest anticipation”
Reviewed May 5, 2017

Thanks for organising my trip to Kenya. By far my safari exceeded my wildest anticipation. I had a great time and Nickson our guide was absolutely a good experienced safari guide. The whole trip was magnificent and I am now going through my photos and so I want to say a big thank you all for accomplishing all the requirements during the trip. I owe Nickson, a next visit with your company. He must be the only guide I have come across who buys the drinks on the last evening prior to departure. Once I hear anyone of my friends or family interested to tour Africa, I will absolutely recommend Explorers Wild Adventures for them. I will certainly visit another trip with you in the future and I will not miss a visit to Rwanda for the gorillas.

Reviewed April 10, 2017

Hi Johann, Thanks for the email. I have been home for about 14 hours since I departed Nairobi yesterday. To be honest, I had a wonderful trip. David our guide was was fast in finding the animals and he positioned us well up to maximum and capture every photo opportunity we came across with the wild. Then Laibor the local Maasai gave direction to assist me maximize the photographic adventure which was our main interest. David was always helpful with a lot of information. He as well helped me in saving, arranging and making some copies of my photos into Lightroom. At one point, my card reader was unresponsive and he let me use an extra one that he had. I really appreciate everything. I moreover feel like our safari was “down to the ground” amazing – what I wanted. THANK YOU.

“I highly recommended this company”
Reviewed March 31, 2017

Our journey was magnificent. I highly recommended this company to any traveler looking for a safari to Kenya. I enjoyed the diversity of the destinations and Masai was at the top, the duration of the stays, the warmth of everyone involved at the various locations etc. Kenya is extremely adventurous – literally everything exceeded our trip expectation and I was amazed how our itinerary was featured.
