If you are thinking about a safari in Africa, then a safari through Kenya will soon come to mind. Kenya offers you the best cheap safaris and tour options in Africa. From the pounding herds of wildebeest at the Mara River fighting for their lives not to be devoured by the crocodiles to the gracious thousands of flamingos of the Rift Valley in Lake Nakuru – all with the mighty, the largest free-standing mountain in the world, the Kilimanjaro in the background. Kenya is the original “Out of Africa” destination.
On the morning of departure you will be picked up at your hotel in Nairobi. The starting point of the safari is the office. Here you will meet the guide and the other travelers. You leave for the Masaai Mara at around 9 a.m. This is a ride with a beautiful view of the “Escarpment Wall”. You will have lunch in Narok and around 15.00 you will arrive at Mara Springs Tented Camp, or a similar camp based on availability. After freshening up you go on a short safari that lasts until the sun sets. Dinner is served in the camp.
Your day starts with a hearty breakfast. For the 8 o’clock clock you head out for a safari of more than 9 hours! In the Masaai Mara National Park the largest numbers of animals live together and today you make a game drive towards the Mara River, the place where all those animals come together. If you arrive during the migration time, you will see the wildebeest crossing the river. And outside of migration you will see countless crocodiles and hippos by the river. You picnic in the park and after lunch your safari continues. The safari lasts until about 5 hours today. Dinner is also served at the camp this evening.
After breakfast you can do an optional activity, such as a “nature walk” with Masaai warriors. Or visit the nearby Masaai village. The costs of these optional activities are 2000 Kenyan Shilling per activity per person; around 20 euros per activity per person. Then you travel to Lake Nakuru. Along the way you enjoy a beautiful view of Mount Longonot. If you wish, we can organize an optional activity on the way for you at Lake Naivasha; a boat trip of about 45 minutes where you can see hippos and pelicans. In the evening you will arrive in Nakuru Town. You spend the night at the Citymax hotel or a comparable hotel based on availability.
Your breakfast at the hotel. Then you travel to Lake Nakuru, famous for the endangered rhinos that live here and of course the many flamingos. The flamingos do not always show up close, but you must have a lot of bad luck if you do not come across (many) rhinos today. Lake Nakuru is not a big National Park and after about 4 hours you have seen most of the park. After lunch you will drive to Lake Naivasha where you will stay at the Taphe Guest Resort, or a similar resort.
After breakfast at the hotel we will drive you to Hell’s Gate. Of course you go on safari here! This is the only place in Kenya where there are no large predators, so you can go on a walking safari here. If you prefer to stay in the jeep, that’s fine too. You can even decide to rent bikes at the Main Gate (Elsa Gate), so you can go on a safari while cycling! This ride is approximately 11 kilometers long, one way. You then cycle to the gorge of Hell’s Gate. Once there (by car, walking or by bike) you can walk through the gorge (the Gorge) of Hell’s Gate as an optional activity. There you will be assigned a guide who will gladly explain everything about the rock formations that you see. Note that this is a fairly tough walk (climb). Take good shoes with you, such as walking shoes or sneakers with a good profile. The cost of this optional activity is 1500 Kenyan shillings; around 15 euros per person. Later in the morning you leave Naivasha behind and head for Amboseli National Park. You spend the night at the New Cottages Kimana Tented Camp.
After breakfast, head out to spot the Big 5 in Kenya’s most famous wildlife park: the Amboseli National Park, located at the foot of Kilimajaro. The safari today lasts until around 5 pm and you will see countless beautiful elephants up close. Upon your return to the New Cottages Kimana Tent you can either rest or book an optional activity at the reception. Later in the evening you will enjoy dinner at this camp.
Early in the morning, after a nice cup of coffee, you make a final game drive in the Amboseli National Park. A safari during sunrise is always a very beautiful experience! From 8.30 a.m. to 9 a.m. you can have a good breakfast in the camp and then you will drive back to Nairobi. You arrive here at around 3 p.m. And with that unfortunately your 7-day safari through Kenya comes to an end! Let us know exactly where you want to be dropped off.
