12 days total (9 days in Kenya)


  • Nairobi: Nairobi is one of the most interesting and happening cities in Africa. Highlights include visits to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Sanctuary.
  • Amboseli National Park: Although it is lesser known amongst the Kenyan parks, Amboseli is famous for being the best place in the world to get close to free-ranging elephants. Amboseli was home to Echo, perhaps the most researched elephant in the world, and the subject of many books and documentaries. Amboseli offers some of the best wildlife safaris because the vegetation is sparse due to the long dry months. It is home to many of Africa’s iconic species, including African elephants, cape buffaloes, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, hyenas, impala and a host of Kenyan birds, both large and small. Other attractions of the park include opportunities to meet the Maasai tribe and visit a Maasai village. The park also offers spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
  • Lake Naivasha: Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Kenya and lies north west of Nairobi – approximately 2 hours by road. It is part of the Great Rift Valley. The lake is home to a variety of wildlife including over 400 different species of birds and mammals such as monkeys, wildebeest, waterbuck, zebra, impala, buffalo, giraffe, Kongoni and a sizeable population of hippos. A visit to Naivasha is not complete without a boat ride on the lake…an opportunity to enjoy its breathtaking beauty and to fill your camera rolls (or memory sticks) with beautiful images of birds and animals.
  • Maasai Mara: Famous for the National Geographic Specials and BBC Television Series that have been shot here, Maasai Mara is undoubtedly a must-visit for every wildlife enthusiast. Maasai Mara is part of the massive ecosystem that covers Tanzania and Kenya…the part of the ecosystem that lies in Tanzania is called “Serengeti”, and the portion that falls in Kenya is “Maasai Mara”. The Serengeti-Mara ecosystem is also the location of the Great Wildebeest & Zebra Migration – one of the most fascinating wildlife spectacles in the world!
