10-Days Grand Kenya Safari Tour in Brief
Go on your own personal migration across Kenya, where each step of the way is an opportunity for extraordinary game viewing under expert guidance.
Usually by Masaai or Samburu rangers.
Spotting big game on the outskirts of Nairobi, the third biggest city on the continent and the only one in the world with a reserve quite like this is the first taste of a week’s worth of East African adventure.
After sleeping under canvas at Nairobi Tented Camp, we have the option to hit the road or fly south-east to Mount Kilimanjaro and the great elephant herds of Amboseli National Park.
Our trip takes us to the true African style of spacious tents at Porini Amboseli Camp.
While here, you will be able to sleep the sleep of the enchanted after a day’s game viewing and a relaxing massage, followed by a fine meal.
Sad to leave but excited to move on, you head into the dry Northern Frontier District, to the land of the enigmatic Samburu, where the Elephant Bedroom is your home.
You will be forgiven for thinking you have packed up all your creature comforts and gone back into the past, so remote and unspoiled is this spectacular location.
Your last stop is Tipilikwani Mara Camp in the Masai Mara, for on the banks of the Talek River.
This is the home of vast herds of plains game, followed always by hungry predators. And for you, delicious food, campfires by night and stargazing to end off perfect days.

Day 1: Nairobi – Amboseli National Park
After breakfast, you’ll depart from Nairobi for Amboseli National Park, which is most famous for its stunning views of Africa’s highest mountain – Mt. Kilimanjaro.
The park offers photographers the rare opportunity to snap photos of elephants, lions, zebras, and giraffes against the startling backdrop of Africa’s most famous mountain.

Day 2: Amboseli National Park
Wake before the 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 one of Kenya’s most beloved pars.
After your morning game drive and a 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 – 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, also known as Sweet Waters. Dinner and overnight at Serena Sweet Waters Safari Lodge (https://www.serenahotels.com/serenasweetwaters/en/default.html)
Your drive not only takes you back through bustling Nairobi and then through the beautiful farm country of Kiyuku, but brings you to the very foothills of Mt. Kenya – Kenya’s highest mountain.
After arriving at Ol Pejeta, you’ll pay a visit to the park’s famous chimpanzee sanctuary to meet its adopted residents and then head out into the park proper for an evening game drive.
Day 4: Ol Pejeta Conservancy – 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 is its own “Special Five”, a collection of animals found nowhere else in Kenya.
These include the Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s Zebra, the long-necked gerenuk, and the Besia Oryx.
You’ll enjoy an afternoon game drive through this unique park. Dinner and overnight at Samburu Sopa Lodge (https://www.sopalodges.com/samburu-sopa-lodge/the-lodge)
Day 5: Samburu Game Reserve
You’ll have a full day to explore the park in search of its rarer 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 tend to cluster closer together near the life-giving Ewaso Ng’iro River, making it an ideal place to set up camp and do some game-viewing.
Day 6: Samburu Game Reserve – Lake Nakuru National Park
You’ll set off after breakfast for your trek to Lake Nakuru National Park in the Great Rift Valley.
Formerly famous for its flamingos, the park is now known for its large herds of buffalo and the presence of both the black and white rhinoceros.
You’ll enjoy a hot lunch at your lodge before taking an afternoon game drive along the shores of the lake to spot baboons, buffalo, lions, leopards, eland, waterbucks, and more.
Dinner and overnight at Lake Nakuru Lodge (https://lakenakurulodge.com/) located inside the park
Day 7: Lake Nakuru National Park – Lake Bogoria – Lake Naivasha
It’s a day of lake exploration as you visit two more of Kenya’s most beautiful lakes.
You’ll 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 flamingoes, and the local spa has both hot springs and swimming pools for your relaxation.
After lunch, you’ll 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 Sopa lodge (https://sopalodges.com/lake-naivasha-sopa-resort/the-resort) for dinner and overnight.
Day 8 – Lake Naivasha – Maasai Mara
You’ll depart from Lake Naivasha after breakfast for the drive south to Kenya’s most famous park: the Maasai Mara game reserve, which is 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 wildebeest 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’ll 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’ll head out for an afternoon and sunset game drive in search of big cats, elephants, giraffes, and more.
Our dinner and overnight will be at Mara Enkorock Luxury Tented Camp (https://www.enkorokmaracamp.com/)
Day 9: Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Wake before the dawn for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness a Maasai Mara sunrise.
After a quick cup of coffee, you’ll 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’ll 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.
Day 10: Maasai Mara – Nairobi
