Day 2 of the 10 Days magical Kenya Safari: Amboseli National Park Full day
Wake up early before dawn for an unforgettable sunrise game drive within the park. Kilimanjaro never looks quite as beautiful as she does first thing in the morning, and you’ll also get to see predators such as Leopards, Lions, and Cheetahs out on the prowl in the cooler morning air.
They don’t call Amboseli the Royal Court of Kilimanjaro for nothing, and as you take in its large Elephant herds and the stunning panorama of Mt. Kilimanjaro, you’ll see why this is of Kenya’s most beloved parks
After your morning game drive and late breakfast, relax at the lodge for a few hours before heading out into the park again in the afternoon. With the animals largely inactive during the warm midday hours, you can get some rest before catching them out and about in the cooling afternoon air.
Day 3: Amboseli National Park to Ol Pejeta Conservancy
With a picnic lunch in hand, you’ll depart from Amboseli after an early breakfast for the drive to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, sometimes known as Sweet Waters.
Your drive not only takes you back through bustling Nairobi and then through the beautiful farm country of Kikuyu, but brings you to the very foothills of Mt. Kenya – Kenya’s highest mountain.
After arriving at Ol Pejeta, you will pay a visit to the park’s Famous Chimpanzee Sanctuary to meet the adopted residents and then head out into the park for an evening drive. Return to hotel for dinner and overnight.
Day 4 of the 10 Days magical Kenya Safari: Ol Pejeta Conservancy to Samburu Game Reserve
You’ll trade the well-known safari spots for one a little more off-the-beaten-track as you head north to the rugged and semi-arid Samburu.
As famous for its unique landscape as it is, for the presence of familiar faces such as leopards, lions, antelopes, and giraffes- the park’s real claim to fame it’s own “special five” a collection of animals found nowhere else in Kenya. These include; the Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, grevy’s zebra, the long-naked gerenuk, and the best oryx.
You will enjoy an afternoon game drive through this unique Park then return to the lodge for dinner and overnight
Day 5 of the 10 Days magical Kenya Safari: Samburu Game Reserve
You’ll have a full day to explore the Samburu Game Reserve in search of its rare inhabitants as well as the likes of Leopards, lions, hyenas, cheetahs, antelopes, and more
While Samburu is smaller than other Kenyan parks and reserves, its diverse wildlife tends to cluster close together near the life-giving Ewaso Ng’iro River, making it an ideal place to set up a camp and do some game-viewing. Have a beautiful and memorable experience with the sights of the jungle. Return to hotel to hotel or camp in the park.
Day 6: Samburu Game Reserve to Lake Nakuru National Park
You’ll set off after breakfast for your trek to Lake Nakuru National Park in the Great Rift Valley.

Have dinner and overnight at the hotel in the Park.
Day 7 of the 10 Days magical Kenya Safari: Lake Nakuru National Park to Lake Bogoria then to Lake Naivasha
It’s a day of lake exploration as you visit two more of Kenya’s most beautiful lakes.
You will depart from Lake Nakuru after breakfast and head to the hot springs and geysers of Lake Bogoria. The lake itself is also home to almost 2 million flamingos, and the local spa has both hot springs and swimming pools for your relaxation
After lunch, you will head to Lake Naivasha for an afternoon boat safari to see the lake’s resident hippos and water birds. At the end of your day, you’ll retire to your lake Naivasha accommodations.
Day 8 of the 10 Days magical Kenya Safari: Naivasha- Maasai Mara
You will depart from lake Naivasha after breakfast for the drive south to Kenya’s most famous park; Maasai Mara. Part of the vast Serengeti plains, the Maasai Mara plays host to a chapter of the famous wildebeest migration each year as 1.7 million wildebeests and more than 500,000 zebras and antelopes cross the swollen Mara River in hopes of finding safety on the Masai Mara’s sweeping plains. Even when the wildebeest migration is not occurring, you will still have the chance to see the entire Big Five as well as Kenya’s Largest variety of animal life.
After lunch at your lodge, you will head out for an afternoon and sunset game drive in search of big cats, elephants, giraffes, and more
Day 9 of the 10 Days magical Kenya Safari: Maasai Mara
Wake before dawn, for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness a Maasai Mara sunrise. After a quick cup of coffee, you will head out into the park to watch as the sun sets fire to the savannah and the big cats take advantage of the morning cool to search for a meal
Alternatively, you can take to the skies with a hot air balloon safari that will see you soar above all of the action before setting down on the plains for a champagne breakfast among the wildlife. Ask your safari expert about adding a hot air balloon adventure to your safari
You will then return to your lodge for a late breakfast before packing a picnic lunch and heading back out into the park for a day-long exploration of the Maasai Mara. You may also opt to relax at your lodge in the morning, enjoy lunch on-site, and then head out again in the afternoon once the weather has cooled off a bit.
