Day 01: Nairobi – Aberdares
Leave in the morning to reach the small town of Nyeri for a sumptuous lunch before leaving for the Ark in the early afternoon. Enjoy the experience of staying in a Tree Hotel or lodge overlooking floodlit waterholes where wildlife visits regularly. Over 40 species of wildlife inhabit the Aberdare mountain ranges, hiding in the heavily forested slopes and in the upper moor lands. The Aberdares is noted as a rhino sanctuary but keep an eye out for the elusive rare bongo, which is best, spotted in the upper bamboo zone and hypericum scrub.
As dusk ensues, we enjoy a relaxing sun downer whilst viewing the game as they gradually approach the waterhole – a truly magical experience. A hearty dinner and pleasant sleep follows thereafter. The night is spent at Treetops, Ark or Mountain Lodge in your comfortable perch above the floodlit waterhole and saltlick where, nightlong, a procession of animals comes to drink.
Day 02: Aberdares – Lake Naivasha
We proceed out of the national park and depart for Lake Naivasha with hot lunch en-route to arrive for a relaxing walk through Hell's Gate National Park and enjoy the geothermal tower.
Stay for dinner and overnight stay at Lake Naivasha Sopa/Simba Lodge.
Day 03: Lake Naivasha – Masai Mara
After breakfast, we will pick you from your Nairobi hotel then depart for the Masai Mara Game Reserve. There will be a stop at the viewpoint of the Great Rift whose view of the valley below is splendidly panoramic and another stop for lunch and re-fuelling at Narok town. On arrival proceed on a game drive in this world-famous reserve, due to its high animal concentration and abundance and its yearly seasonal migration of wildebeest and zebra. Dinner and overnight at the Mara Sopa/Simba Lodge.
Day 04: Masai Mara
After breakfast. Proceed for a day of tracking game with your guide. All the big five may be seen namely elephant, buffalo and lion; the sighting of rhino and leopard which make the total five cannot be guaranteed as they are few in number, very shy and elusive. Break for your leisurely picnic lunch at the hippo pool. Towards the day’s end, return to the Mara Sopa/Simba Lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 05: Masai Mara - Nairobi
After breakfast and your last game drive, depart the Mara region for Nairobi with lunch en-route, arriving in the late afternoon / early evening.
