This 8-day tour explores the capital city of Nairobi, the Amboseli National Park which offers spectacular views of Tanzania's Mt Kilimanjaro, and the Masai Mara National Park which is known for its annual Great Migration.

Overview

Kenya is a magnificent country that encompasses savannah, Lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley, and mountain highlands.

Your adventure begins deep inside the Nairobi National Park with an overnight stay at Nairobi Tented Camp - the only camp situated within the Nairobi National Park. Your time is spent exploring Kenya's oldest reserve, well known for its Black Rhino Sanctuary and sightings of lions, leopards, hyenas, and other fascinating wildlife.

Your journey continues to the Amboseli National Park, often regarded as the best place in Kenya to see elephants at close range. You will spend two nights at the award-winning Porini Amboseli Camp which is located in the private Selenkay concession, affording guests incredible game viewing opportunities during game drives that venture off the beaten track.

After an exciting safari experience in Amboseli, you head to the vast 90 000 acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy; a pristine wildlife area between the Aberdares and the majestic Mount Kenya. The conservancy is home to a variety of animals including the Big Five. It is the largest wildlife sanctuary in East Africa for the endangered Black Rhino and also provides sanctuary to rescued chimpanzees. You will spend two nights at Porini Rhino Camp; an intimate bush camp designed to have minimal impact on the environment.

Your safari adventure then takes you to the Olare Motorogi Conservancy - a pristine and exclusive 33 000 acre wilderness. This large area borders the Masai Mara National Reserve and is home to an abundance of animals, particularly the big cats which the Mara is well known for. Typically during the months of July through early October, the Masai Mara is most popular for the Great Migration.

When not out exploring the African bush, you will spend your time at the intimate Porini Lion Camp - a camp that offers a genuine “away from it all” experience deep in the African bush. During your two night stay at Porini Lion Camp, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a hot air balloon safari which offers spectacular views of the reserve.

If you are looking for an authentic tented safari experience in some of Kenya's best game reserves then this tour is the ideal choice.

Day 1: Arrive Nairobi Wilson Airport

Your safari adventure begins today as you arrive at Nairobi Wilson Airport where you will be met and transferred by road to your camp.

Depending on your time of arrival, you may get to experience your first game drive in the Nairobi National Park. The reserve inhabits 100 mammal species including buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, baboon, zebra, wildebeest, cheetah and guaranteed sightings of rhino. There is also the opportunity of seeing over 500 migratory and endemic bird species.

After an exciting safari, you will return to camp for drinks and exchange stories around the campfire before dinner under the vast African star-lit sky, ultimately retreating to the comfort of your bed in your cozy tent.

Rare animals seen in the conservancy frequently include caracal, African wild cat, serval cat, genet cat, honey badger, and striped hyena.

To be honest, we were a bit picky since it was our honeymoon and at the same time, Safari was our dream travel destination. However, we were able get help from Kim and finally ended up with perfect plan. She was very helpful, kind and meticulous person fortunately. She has provided a complete schedule that reflects all of our requirements and, of course, we would encourage safari.com to any consumer considering traveling to Africa.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
