Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Nairobi

Upon arrival into Nairobi, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Spend the rest of the day at leisure.

Stay: The Sarova Stanley Hotel - or upgrade to the iconic Giraffe Manor (at extra cost please call for details)

Day 2
Samburu National Reserve

Heading north after an early breakfast, you’ll pass near Thika and continue north through some breathtaking scenery dotted with rushing mountain streams and fields of tea and coffee. After Nanyuki town, you’ll continue north, eventually reaching a dusty outpost known as Isiolo, the last major stop on the journey into the remote northern frontier district. From here it’s a fairly short hop to Shaba where you’ll arrive at the lodge in time for lunch and then depart for an afternoon game drive arriving back at the lodge as the sun sets.

Stay: Sarova Shaba Game Lodge

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

Day 3
Samburu National Reserve

Early morning game drive followed by breakfast. Then for the remainder of the morning, one is able to relax by the pool or terrace, overlooking the river. After lunch there will be another game drive returning to the lodge as the sun sets.

Stay: Sarova Shaba Game Lodge

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

Day 4
Lake Nakuru

An early morning start takes you north west as you head for Nyahururu, still known to many as Thomson’s Falls for its 237 foot cascade. Now travel in a southerly direction to your next destination, the spectacular Lake Nakuru. This is often coloured a shimmering flamingo pink from thousands of the beautiful birds lining its shores. Once in the park, enjoy a game drive en route to the lodge. Following lunch and a siesta, there is an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge as the sun sets.

Stay: Sarova Lion Hill Lodge

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

Day 5
Masai Mara

After an early morning breakfast leave the flamingo fringed Lake Nakuru behind and head for Njoro town, where you begin your ascent up over the top of the Mau Escarpment. Then, heading due south, travel towards Narok, the gateway to the Masai Mara and district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. You’ll travel across the "breadbasket" of Kenya, covered with acres of wheat and barley, before you reach the Mara in time for lunch. Following lunch and a siesta, there is an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge as the sun sets.

Stay: Sarova Mara Game Camp

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

Day 6
Masai Mara

The Masai Mara, known locally as ’The Mara’ and named after the traditional tribe from the area, is a large wildlife reserve and easily one of the best in the world. The reserve is well known for its high number of big cats; indeed its possible to spot Africa’s ’Big 5’ here with relative ease owing to the large concentration of wildlife. During the migration which occurs between July and October, migratory animals including tens of thousands of wildebeest pass through the park from the Serengeti in search of fresh pastures. Enjoy an early morning and evening game drive in the park.

Stay: Sarova Mara Game Camp

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

Day 7
Mombasa

After breakfast you’ll depart the Masai Mara and head across acres of rolling wheat and barley farms to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. From here cross the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley whilst keeping an eye out for herds of giraffe and gazelle before heading up the rift escarpment on a road built by Italian prisoners during World War II. You’ll arrive into Kenya’s bustling capital around midday and be dropped off at the airport for your flight to Mombasa. On arrival in Mombasa, transfer to the delightful AfroChic hotel on Diani Beach.

Stay: AfroChic Diani
