14 days safari and beach Kenya
(NAIROBI, NAKURU, NAIVASHA, CRESCENT ISLAND, MASAI MARA, AMBOSELI, TSAVO EAST & WEST, MOMBASA)
DAY 1 - We pick you up at your hotel or the airport to start right away on the 1st national park which is located a few kilometers from the capital. The oldest NP in Kenya, namely that of Nairobi. Located on the southern edge of the city, Nairobi National Park has an abundance of wildlife that can be viewed in some places (if you like it or not) against a backdrop of city skyscrapers. It is one of the few national parks on earth that borders on a capital. In this small park we stay only half a day. We will go for lunch and in the afternoon you can look for any further activities (Daphne Sheldrick elephant sanctuary, Giraffe Center or Nairobi Walken), or decide to relax in your hotel so that you are fresh for the next days, to a long distance drive.
DAY 2 - After breakfast we leave for Masai Mara. On the road by 4X4 for a ride of 280km (5h) of which 30% is unpaved.
At the Oloshaiki Camp (or something similar nearby) we join the buffet and crawl into our bungalow.
DAY 3 - Masai Mara National Reserve will be our full day game drive today. It was established in 1948 as a nature reserve, intended to protect the animals of the Serengeti savanna, and has been expanding ever since.
The well-known annual wildebeest migration from Tanzania with more than 1.5 million animals arrives here in August and departs in November.
DAY 4 - Today we leave very early after breakfast, about 300 kilometers further to Lake Nakuru where we arrive shortly after noon.
If you're lucky and standing in front of the lake, you literally see everything through rose-colored glasses. More than 2 million flamingos stretch out in front of you, covering the lake with a fluffy pink blanket. An out-of-the-ordinary sight that mainly takes place between October and March. But Nakuru has more than just flamingos. This is quite a large National Park and an important sanctuary for the Rhino. Both black and white rhinoceroses can be found here. In the evening we return to our lodge, this one of Bilashaka.
DAY 5 - A visit to Crescent Island, which is located in Lake Naivasha. After a boat trip we do a 2 hour game walk between giraffes, zebras, hippos, antelopes and wildebeest. These animals were once brought here to film "Out of Africa" and were left here to thrive.
There are therefore no predators on the island. We sail back and in the rest of the day we have a small rest moment in the lodge.
Also read our blog about this lodge.
DAY 6 - A long but fairly easy ride with 20% unpaved, to Amboseli awaits you today. There will be stops to view the great rift valley near Nairobi and the peaks of Kilimanjaro (weather permitting). That means that we will soon be on the road for 6 hours (340km).
Dinner and accommodation is with (possibly) a view of Kilimanjaro in the Kibo Safari Camp (or an equivalent alternative nearby).
DAY 7-Amboseli is our location today. This National Park encompasses five major wildlife habitats (open plains, acacia forests, rocky thornbushes, lakes and swamps). By the way, we do our picnic on Observation Hill.
DAY 8 - We continue to Tsavo West National Park, with its scenic hills and rich deep colors. Dinner and overnight in the unique Sarova lodge. You can even optionally do a 2-hour night game drive together with a ranger. Looking for lions or a leopard hunting at night.
DAY 9 - After another short game drive in the Tsavo West with a stop at the Mzima springs, we continue to the open savanna plains of Tsavo East . Tsavo National Park is the largest park in Kenya but the sparse vegetation makes wildlife watching more accessible.
Here you will find huge herds of red elephants (red from the dust/lava) just like the black rhinoceros can be spotted here.
DAY 10/14 - After a final breakfast in the bush and morning game drive you can gradually start preparing for a relaxing period on the Kenyan coast of Mombasa. Plenty of choice in resorts or hotels, whether or not located on Diani Beach.
For those who like to soak up some culture, a visit (with a guide) to old Mombasa can be made.
As well as a visit to Fort Jesus. A boat trip or snorkeling are also optional excursions that are possible.
However, you will eventually be picked up by us on the last day to return home via Mombasa airport.
