Short Wildlife Safaris

Amboseli Wildlife Safari – 3 Days

 Day 1: Leave Nairobi early and drive southeastwards to Amboseli National Park. With its backdrop of the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa’s highest mountain) and the abundant wildlife, Amboseli is a real spectacle. This is where you can see large herds of elephants and plains game, giraffes, gazelles, lions, leopards etc roaming the plains. Dinner and overnight bush camp


Day 2: Whole day on game drives in the park. Optional two-hour visit (at an extra cost) to a Maasai village (“Manyatta”) to learn more about the local people’s culture. Dinner and overnight bush camp


Day 3: Early morning game drive then return to Nairobi.


Masai Mara Wildlife Safari – 3 Days

 Day 1: Leave Nairobi at 9.00am for a 4-5 hour drive to Masai Mara. Lunch then do an afternoon game drive. Or hike with a local Maasai guide to the summit of the nearby Naunare hills for sundowner. From the hilltop you can enjoy a panoramic view of the expansive Mara ecosystem. Dinner and overnight Mara Springs Safari Camp

Day 2: Take an extensive tour of the Masai Mara. Leaving shortly after dawn, you spend the whole day driving through different locations of the Reserve, watching and learning about different species of animals from our expert guide. Take a break from the mid day heat to have picnic lunch beside the Hippo Pool as you watch hippos swim or bask lazily. By the time you return to the camp in the evening, you’ve hopefully seen the elephant, the rhino, the lion, the giraffe, the hippo, the buffalo, the zebra, the leopard and a lot of other species including birds. Dinner and overnight Mara Springs Safari Camp


Day 3: Two-hour pre-breakfast game drive from dawn, the best time to see any animals you may have missed yesterday. Return to the camp for breakfast then drive back to Nairobi, arriving in late afternoon. Picnic lunch is served en route.


Samburu Wildlife Safari – 3 Days

Day 1: Leave Nairobi in the morning for a 3 hour drive to Mountain Rock Lodge (Mt Kenya) for lunch, then a further 3-4 hours drive north to Samburu Game Reserve. On arrival, do a late afternoon game drive en route to our camp by the river banks. Dinner and overnight bush camp


Day 2: Whole day of game drives in Samburu. Samburu park which straddles the Ewasongiro River is the most renowned representative of semi-arid parks in Kenya.
