ITINERARY

Day 1: Nairobi – Amboseli National park

Upon arrival drive south to the famed Amboseli National Park located at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. The snow-capped peak of the mountain dominates every aspect of the park, providing the ultimate photo backdrop. Lunch at the lodge in the afternoon. Then we proceed with an afternoon game drive in the park later return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

Accommodation: Kibo Safari Camp  Mid-range lodge located in the park

Day 2: Amboseli National Park

Rise early for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit with packed lunch provided, an optional visit to a Masai village can be planned after breakfast. A visit reveals the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience. Despite its changing habitat, Amboseli National Park is possibly the best wildlife area in the whole of Africa to experience elephant at close range. Left unharassed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any Safari.

Day 3: Amboseli National Park – Lake Naivasha

After an early breakfast drive to Lake Naivasha, it is the highest and the most beautiful of the Rift Valley lakes. At 1910m (6200f), the water is fresh and the lake is fringed with dense clumps of papyrus (ancient Egyptian once used this to make paper). Kingfishers use the papyrus as a perch, herons hide in it while searching for food. Naivasha is yet another area popular for bird watching (over 400species have been recorded). It is also a favourite weekend retreat for Nairobi residents, who come here to sail, water ski and fish. There are no crocodiles in the lake as the water is too cold for them, due to altitude but there are a number of hippos. Along the lake shore, vineyards produce grapes for the country’s fledgling wine industry.

Day 4: Lake Naivasha – Masai Mara

An early morning drive to Masai Mara National Reserve, it holds on as one of the few places left on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once roamed the plains and forests of Africa. As the northern tip of the vast Serengeti ecosystem, the Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of Wildebeest, Zebras and attendant predators. Have lunch en-route, evening is spent at leisure.

Accommodation: Sarova Mara Game CampMid-range Tented Camp

Day 5: Masai Mara

Today we have a full day game drive, with packed lunch provided. The reserve is well known for its black-manned lion, as well as its abundant resident wildlife and its one of the few places where it’s possible to see the big five during a morning’s game drive. Many of the cheetahs are so tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one’s vehicle and several even climb onto the roof to get a better view of prospective prey. For the bird enthusiast, almost 500 species have been recorded: among these 16 species of eagle, plus many hawks and falcons, 6 species of vultures, 8 species of storks 4 of bustard (including the Kori bustard, the world’s heaviest flying bird), and 9 species of sunbirds.

I chose Leadwood Expeditions based on reviews and was not disappointed. From start to finish, the company provided everything we asked for and more. Showed up on time in a Landcruiser. Vehicle was in great condition and even had outlets. Stephen, our driver/guide, was wonderful, knowledgeable, and full of answers to all our many, many questions. Including those from our 12 and 15 years old daughters.
