Classic Kenya - Small Group
This journey has a wonderfully contrasting mixture of game viewing, scenery and beach. Combining Mount Kenya, the Samburu Game Reserve in the north, Lake Nakuru in the Rift Valley, the famous Masai Mara and the Indian Ocean coastline. The itinerary below is for a small group tour departing on set dates throughout the year (up to day 8), however it may also be taken on a private basis and tailored as required.
Depart from London on the daytime flight to Nairobi. Transfer on arrival to your hotel for an overnight stay (with breakfast).
After an early breakfast, head off with your driver/guide on the journey north to Samburu for a 2 night stay, passing through some breath-taking scenery en route (full board). Further north, the mountains and tea plantations are replaced by a more arid and dusty terrain, with spectacular views from the hillsides. Explore Samburu’s open plains and desert landscapes on game drives in search of the Samburu Special 5.
Drive south into the forests of the Aberdare Mountains for an overnight stay and game viewing (full board).
The journey continues to the spectacular Lake Nakuru National Park, arriving in time for lunch and an overnight stay (full board). The lake attracts flamingos and the park is home to black and white rhino as well as the endangered Rothschild giraffe.
Today you reach the world-famous Masai Mara. Stay for 2 nights and explore the park, renowned for its rich wildlife (full board). Depending on the time of year, you may witness the huge herds of wildebeest and zebra that come with the rains (generally Jul-Sep), however the Mara has abundant resident game year round, with good elephant, cheetah and lion populations.
Drive back to Nairobi and return to London on the overnight flight.
Arrive back in the UK.
