NAIROBI

A modern and relatively young city, Nairobi flourished and expanded once the Kenya- Uganda Railway construction set up a supply depot at “Mile 327”, in 1899. Today, a small Railway Museum pays tribute to the workers and engineers who worked on the tracks that opened up the interior of the country, and has on display original wagons and engines that had originally been shipped in by the British, piece by piece, from India.

“The Green City in the Sun”, as it has come to be known, Nairobi’s streets are lined with flowering Jacarandas and Nandi Flames, and there are several parks and the Nairobi Arboretum, which showcase the spectacular vegetation and trees of Kenya. The National Museum has on display historical art and weapons from Kenya’s 42 tribes, archaeological exhibits from diggings carried out in various parts of the country, and a modern art and culture section which frequently hosts plays and concerts. There are several restaurants, clubs, shops and markets to be visited, as well as the Karen Blixen house, the Giraffe Centre, the Snake Park and Aviary, the Bomas of Kenya Cultural Centre which presents traditional dances daily, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust- an orphanage for elephants and rhinos which are rehabilitated prior to being released back to the wild, and the Nairobi National Park, home to Kenya’s largest cheetah population and also site of one of the top black rhino sanctuaries in East Africa.

 

Overnight: Golden Tulip Hotel https://westlands-nairobi.goldentulip.com/en-us/

Meal Plan: Bed and Breakfast.
Day 02 Aberdare National Park

Breakfast at the hotel and proceed on your drive to Aberdare region in the Central Kenya, arriving in time for lunch at Aberdare Country Club and later transferred to The Ark by their vehicles, afternoon game viewing at the Lodge’s precincts.

THE ARK LODGE

Set in the heart of the Aberdare National Park, iconic and yes, quirky. The Ark overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick, which attracts a host of awesome wildlife. Resembling and named after Noah’s Ark, The Ark comprises of three decks from which numerous balconies and lounges provide a superb location for wildlife to be seen. So that you don’t miss any animal sightings, the night guard will buzz your room when special animals come to the waterhole. The Ark has four viewing areas for observing the ever-present animal activity.There is also a ground level bunker – the perfect hideout for the discerning photographer. This is a circular pillbox-like structure, and it is from this vantage point that pictures of animals on the salt lick only yards away may be taken through the view holes in complete safety.

"In this intimate recess one can almost, but not quite, pat the animals, hear their sounds and smell the aroma of the night. This is a magical corner, where there is close contact with the essence that tells of an unexplored Africa, and where, very often, the visitor may enjoy in solitary state the beauty of it all."- Monty Brown's book, Haven Under the Hill

Meal Plan: Full Board- Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Day 03 Lake Nakuru National Park

Breakfast at the lodge transfer to Aberdare Country Club to reconnect with your driver to proceed on with your drive to Lake Nakuru National Park with a brief stop at Thompsons Falls.

Later arrive in Lake Nakuru with game viewing drive enroute to the camp for lunch.

 LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK.

Often described as an ornithologist’s paradise, the Lake Nakuru National park is located within the Great Rift Valley and encompasses one of the Rift’s most renowned natural wonders- an outstanding place to watch, at times, over 1 million pink flamingos wading along the shores of theshallow, alkaline water lake. Hundreds of other water birds, including pelicans, marabou storks, seagulls, avocets, plovers and stilts can also be found at the lake itself, while the acacia trees and rocky cliffs of the park house Verreaux’s eagles, splendid fish eagles, vultures and wood hoopoes.

The parklands are filled with numerous buffalo, waterbuck, gazelles and impalas, while the majestic and rare Rothschild giraffes roam the acacia forests, occasionally walking across the open plains. Lions, leopards, hyenas and jackals are commonly sighted, as are the black and white rhinos, who have found refuge in Kenya’s prime rhino sanctuary.

Overnight: Flamingo Hill Camp https://www.flamingohillcamp.com/

Meals: Full Board- Breakfast, lunch and Dinner

Day 04 Lake Naivasha

 Breakfast at the camp and optional morning game viewing drive in the park.

Later proceed on to the nearby Lake Naivasha arriving in time for lunch at the lodge, spent your afternoon at leisure by the pool or perhaps enjoy a boat ride experience which can be organized at an extra cost.

 LAKE NAIVASHA

This beautiful and expansive lake, set in the Rift Valley, gets its name from the Maa word for “tempestuous”, or moody. Located close to the now extinct volcano Mt. Longonot, the several vents and underwater caves that connect the two make it impossible to guess the exact depth of the lake, and the resulting currents and temperatures mean that the lake could be calm and serene in the morning, and choppy, cold and grey by the same afternoon! Naivasha was considered the heart of the opulent ‘Happy Valley’ settler population during the colonial era in the early 20th century, a trendy set equally renowned for their tempestuousness!  Lake Naivasha is extremely popular with visitors who would like to enjoy a lazy boat ride to admire the proliferation of over 350 species of birds which include fish eagles and ospreys, herons and egrets, purple gallinules, lily-trotters, red-knobbed coots and black crakes, or to admire the families of hippos that inhabit the lake. Those who prefer a faster pace could hire a speedboat and cruise the lake in spectacular style!

Crescent Island, which can be accessed by road at times, depending on the water levels, is a unique wildlife sanctuary found on Lake Naivasha. An abundance of plains game inhabits the sanctuary, which is visited on foot; one of the main attractions on the island is an albino python, an amazing sight to behold, if it is in the mood to expose itself!

Overnight: Sawela Lodge http://www.sawelalodges.com/

Meal Plan: Full board - lunch /dinner/breakfast.

Day 05 Masai Mara Game Reserve

Breakfast at the lodge and depart for Masai Mara, arriving in time for lunch at the camp. Later afternoon proceed to the reserve for a game viewing drive experience.

MAASAI MARA RESERVE.

Offering superb plains scenery, unmatched safari activities and diverse wildlife, Masai Mara National Reserve is considered Kenya’s best park and one of Africa’s highest wildlife density region for predators. The reserve covers 583 square miles (1510 square kilometres) of outstanding wilderness in South West Kenya.

The location, wildlife, activities and comfortable moderate climate puts Mara at the top of the list, even for the most discerning traveller to Kenya. When the public reserve was first established, it covered 645 square miles (1672 square kilometres). Strategically, the size of the reserve was later reduced in 1984 to accommodate Maasai cattle grazing on their ancestral lands. Although the decrease in land area may be considered a let-down for wildlife conservation and protection at its infancy, the animals and habitats of the reserve found new allies to ensure their survival for generations to come. Many private conservancies have been introduced to protect the land that surrounds the reserve, thereby providing more area for wildlife. The lands not only protect habitats for resident species, but also preserve a critical part of the route used by wildebeests and zebras during the Great Migration that traverses the Masai Mara via the Serengeti National Park. Recognized as one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the planet, the migration is a continuous route that is followed by an over 1.5 million wildebeests and thousands of zebras, gazelles and elands. In their never-ending pursuit for the finest grazing and watering grounds, the gnu relocate on an almost constant basis. The perseverance of these wildebeests is demonstrated in their ability to mate while on the move, and many cows are pregnant during part of the migration. Additionally, even the youngest wildebeest calves are expected to keep up with the herd. Standing and walking within minutes are critical to its survival.

The migrators of Masai Mara National Reserve are present from approximately late June – early August until end of October – early November. But the Mara offers year-round game viewing. The reserve and surrounding conservancies offer diverse resident species experiences. Frequently to be seen are impalas, topis, giraffes, elephants, zebras, buffalos, warthogs and other grazing herbivores. With so many prey animals, Masai Mara is a veritable bonanza for large predators, such as lions, cheetahs, leopards, crocodiles and other stealthy, powerful hunters. The abundance of terrestrial animals is enhanced by the presence of more than 450-winged species, including 57 birds of prey. Masai Mara Game Reserve offers varied tour activities to explore the plains landscape and see incredible animal behaviours. The adjoining conservancies offer distinct activities that are not allowed in the reserve. Game drives in the reserve are perfect for those who seek to be immersed in Kenya’s bush country and see larger animals.

For guests interested in observing the nocturnal animals, these are available in the form of night game drives in some of adjoining private conservancies. The Serengeti-Mara ecosystem is recognized for an enormous diversity of flora and fauna, and some small details are missed during game drives. Most conservancies offer bush walks for an intimate look at the micro-ecosystems of the area. To complement these walks or a general visit to the Mara, a balloon safari experience, for a bird’s-eye view of the area, is a memorable experience.

Lastly, the Maasai community is key to the advancement of wildlife management in the area. It is hence recommended for one to take time learning more about these noble people by visiting one of their villages for a life-changing cultural experience in understanding their modest and simple lives.

Evening head back to the camp for dinner and overnight.

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK.

14673sqKm of endless plains, the Serengeti National Park lies in north western Tanzania, straddling the border with Kenya. The Park encompasses half of the 30,000 sq Km Serengeti- Mara Ecosystem, a range of land defined by the limits of the Wildebeest movements throughout the year.

Tanzania’s oldest park, with its even more ancient landscape forged by the past volcanic activity of the several volcanoes in the nearby Ngorongoro Highlands; the rich grasses of the plains play host to the most spectacular numbers of wildlife in the world. Almost every African animal species is represented in the Serengeti, birthplace of the millions of plains game that continually circle the ecosystem. Huge granite boulders, known as kopjes, are characteristic of the park, and provide sanctuary for birds, colourful Agama lizards and sombre snakes, adorable rock hyraxes, as well as the big cats that seek shelter from the elements. Although famed for its plains, the Serengeti encompasses woodland, thornbush, swamps and Lakes Lagaja and Magadi, supporting over 30 species of large herbivores and over 500 species of birds, including Eurasian migrants, with its diversity. The Gol and Moru Kopjes, the central Seronera area which is an oasis of springs, pools and surprisingly, palm trees, and the equally mysterious “Whistling Thorn” country- the Western Corridor which leads to the Grumeti River, home of Africa’s largest crocodiles, are some of the natural obstacles which the wildebeest and zebra encounter and must cross, during their annual migration up north towards the Masai Mara.

Safari in Swahili simply means a "journey". Nowadays it has become a synonym for wildlife viewing in the African bush. We explore the endless plains to discover the vast expanse and wilderness of Serengeti. Indulge, take your time and relish each moment spotting wildlife. We search for the most wonderful natural phenomenon, the Grand Migration of thousands and thousands of wildebeest and zebra crossing the plains in search of water and food. Crossing fingers that we will see this, being something so natural and not manmade, we cannot guarantee, but hopefully we'll experience it.

Overnight: Mbugani Camp

Meal Plan: Full board - lunch /dinner.

Day 09 Karatu Area

Sunrise game drives. After breakfast, depart with picnic lunch boxes and head for Ngorongoro for afternoon game viewing drive in the Crater.

THE NGORONGORO CRATER
The Ngorongoro Crater, the largest intact caldera in the world measuring over 600m deep and some 8-19Km in diameter, is believed to be about 8 million years old. The steep descent into the crater is almost as exciting as the scene that awaits you within the crater; a fantastic showcase of nature’s best.
The diverse landscape within the crater, in which the savannah blends in to swamps, rivers, marshes, forests and cliffs, provides sanctuary for the black-maned lions, cheetahs, buffalos, elephants, and leopards that live side by side with thousands of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras, both black-backed and golden jackals. The Crater is also home to some of Tanzania’s last remaining rhinos. Flamingos and hippos inhabit the alkaline lakes and fresh water pools; old elephants can be seen patiently wading through the papyrus ponds, while way up, on the slopes of the crater, unique and beautiful Afro-Alpine vegetation blankets the ground in a rich green cover, occasionally hidden by the mist and fog that occurs at the rim, which stands at over 2300m.

Later eveningascent, the crater rim and exit and head to Karatu area.

Day 10 Lake Manyara National Park

After your breakfast at the hotel, pick your picnic lunch boxes and proceed on to Lake Manyara National Game drive for game viewing drive experience in the park.

LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK

Lake Manyara National Park, named after the Wild Sisal that grows in the area, is dominated by the soda lake that extends over an area of 230 sq Km, or a third of the total area of the park. Lake Manyara National park is a complex and exciting park: the ever-changing vegetation which starts with thick forests of mahogany, fig trees and wild mango, fed by tens of underground streams which drain the Ngorongoro Highlands, provide a haven for colourful birds, monkeys and shy dwarf antelopes, and open up in to woodland, a favourite for elephants and impala, and then unfolds in to open savannah, teeming with herds of buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, giraffes… before spilling in to Lake Manyara, home to hundreds of thousands of water birds including flamingos and pelicans.
This means that you never know what to expect- every corner taken brings endless possibilities… you could end up at the Hot Springs, or perhaps at the hippo pools, or if you are lucky, you could chance upon the park’s famous tree-climbing lions!

Later afternoon head back to Karatu area for dinner and overnight

Overnight: Eileen Tree Innhttps://www.eileenstrees.com/.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Day 11 Karatu- Tarangire National Park- Arusha

 

Breakfast at the lodge and depart with picnic lunches to Tarangire National Park for a game viewing drive experience.

 

 

TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

The 2600 sq Km Tarangire National Park covers an area of open country dotted with the majestic baobab trees, acacias and palm trees. The orange- hued landscape alternates between scrub, open plains, swamps and rivers, crossed by the Tarangire River.
During the hot dry season, the park is at its prettiest. Everything is coloured brown or orange; the baobabs, the massive elephants that cover themselves in the red earth to protect themselves from the flies and the heat. At this time, the concentration of animals in the park rivals that of the Ngorongoro Crater, as animals from as far away as Kenya travel to the Tarangire River’s cooling permanent waters.
As characteristic of the park as are the baobabs, the local Elephant population, estimated to be at about 5000, is Tarangire’s pride and joy. Other animals include wildebeest, zebra, eland, oryx- all under the watchful eye of cheetahs, leopards and lions. The less visited southern part of the park is covered by swamps, teeming with hippos and birdlife and by savannah plains, in which walking safaris can be arranged.    

Later afternoon proceed to Arusha town for overnight at the hotel.

Overnight: Mount Meru Hotel
