We’ve included all our morning and afternoon game drives in all the national parks including the Maasai Mara and Serengeti for your best shot at seeing the Big 5, and even better, you’ll be driving through valleys and plains in our top of the range open-top vehicles and staying in some of the best lodges and luxury campsites for the ultimate safari experience.

Detailed Itinerary

DAY 1 - ARRIVE NAIROBI

Nairobi

Your Africa adventure begins as the plane touches down in red-earthed Nairobi. You’ll be greeted by a transfer rep at the airport and driven to your accommodation for the night through the modern city centre in private transportation. Set your bags down at the hotel and feel the excitement build as your Trip Manager runs through the itinerary.
This evening you’ll have a chance to head out for some dinner at a local restaurant, a perfect time to practise your ‘Jambo’ (hello) and ‘Asante-sana’ (Thank you very much). Get to know your new mates over a hearty Kenyan meal before a big day tomorrow.

DAY 2 - NAIROBI TO MASAI MARA

Nairobi

We start the day with a hot breakfast at the hotel before meeting our local guides and loading up in the safari vehicles for the start of our great Masai Mara adventure.

Masai Mara

We’ll pass down and through the Great Rift Valley as we arrive at our classic African safari lodge, just in time for lunch in the famous Masai Mara. After lunch, you’ll have time for a quick siesta or a dip in the pool. This afternoon will include your first game drive, seeing some of Africa’s vast array of wildlife both big and small on the rolling hills of this magnificent nature reserve.

DAY 3 - MASAI MARA

Masai Mara

This morning you have the option for a once-in-a-lifetime hot air balloon Safari experience, or join the early morning game drive – one of the best times to see the wild animals as they relax in the cooler climate before the midday heat. In the late morning we’ll all head back to the lodge for some lunch and lounging around the pool, before departing on an evening game drive in search of Africa’s elusive big cats: the lion, leopard and cheetah. This reserve is the scene of one of nature’s most incredible and humbling events: the Great Migration. During the right season, watch with your jaw open as millions of wildebeest and zebra risk their lives crossing crocodile-infested waters with lions lurking on the banks as they bravely press forward to greener pastures.

If you want to make today even more unforgettable, you can opt in for a once-in-a-lifetime Balloon safari. A buffet dinner awaits us back at our luxury campsite.
