What to expect

Scenic Kenya safari holiday in Masai Mara and Amboseli NP: Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival Nairobi

Arrival in Nairobi, Jomo Kenyatta International airport, Inclusive Holidays Africa representative will meet you and escort you as you to your hotel.
Our representative will help you through check-in and make sure you are settled in well.

A premium wildlife resort strategically located just off the Mombasa road overlooking the Nairobi National Game Park. Centrally positioned between the international airport and the city center, this is the only hotel bordering the wilds of the National Park.

Lunch: On your own around at a local restaurant.
Accommodation: OLE SERENI HOTEL
Meal Plan: Bed & Breakfast basis.

Day 02: Drive to Amboseli National Park | Afternoon game-viewing drive

Today after breakfast, check-out and drive to Amboseli National Park - set in rolling savannah scenery, it is dwarfed by the presence of the pink-tinged, snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding volcanic mountain in the world and topped by one fifth of all the ice in Africa.

Against this magnificent backdrop roam vast herds of 'giant' elephant accompanied by a kaleidoscope of other fabulous beasts - lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, baboon, gazelle hippo and wildebeest. Amboseli National Park is also an ornithological paradise with over 400 species of birds, all manner of reptilian, flora and fauna and some of the most soul-searing views in Africa.

Arrive at your lodge in time for check-in and lunch. After lunch we embark on an afternoon game viewing drive in search of the 'big five' among other animals.

Accommodation day 2 of scenic Kenya safari holiday in Masai Mara and Amboseli NP: AMBOSELI SERENA LODGE
Meal Plan: Full board basis.

Day 03: Amboseli National Park | Morning & Afternoon game-viewing drive
Full day spent in this national park with morning and afternoon game drives. Mid-day spent at leisure – a good time to take a swim overlooking Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Amboseli National Park is one of the best-known wildlife destinations in Kenya, primarily for excellent sightings of elephant in the big marshy area and the magnificent view of Mount Kilimanjaro (Observation Hill offers the best vistas). Chase the perfect sight of a massive gathering of big-tusked elephants set against the backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro.

Meal Plan: Full board basis.

Day 04: Great Rift Valley | Afternoon boat ride

Today we will have an early breakfast, check-out and drive to Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake, fringed by thick papyrus. The lake is almost 13kms across, but its waters are shallow with an average depth of five metres. Lake area varies greatly according to rainfall, with an average range between 114 and 991 sq kms.

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Naivasha completely dried up and effectively disappeared. The resulting open land was farmed, until heavy rains a few years later caused the lake to return to existence, swallowing up the newly established estates. The region surrounding the Lake is well worth exploring.

There are two smaller lakes nearby, Oloidien, and Sonachi, a bright green crater lake. Arrive in time for check-in and lunch. Afternoon will be spent at leisure or undertaking one of the optional activities.

Meal Plan: Full board basis.

Day 05 of scenic Kenya safari holiday in Masai Mara and Amboseli NP: Drive to Masai Mara | Afternoon game-viewing drive

A hearty early morning breakfast then drive to the Masai Mara National Reserve, offering wonderful scenery and plenty of game. We arrive at our 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, wildebeests, 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.

Accommodation: ENTIM MASAI MARA
Meal Plan: Full board basis.

Day 06: Masai Mara | Full day game-viewing drive

Optional Balloon Safari: 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.

Full day adventure with morning and afternoon game drives. Be on the look-out for the big five that Maasai 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 before dusk.
Accommodation: ENTIM MASAI MARA
Meal Plan: Full board basis.

Day 07: Drive back to Nairobi | Depart
After breakfast check-out and bid goodbye to your lodge manager for hosting; not empty handed though. With us are photographs – a capture of the special moments we have had on this scenic Kenya safari holiday in Masai Mara and Amboseli NP to immortalize the experience.

Drive back to Nairobi to arrive early in the afternoon, and enjoy lunch at the carnivore restaurant. After lunch you will be transferred to Jomo Kenyatta International airport in time for your onward international flight.
