  1. Day 1 Arrive Nairobi (1 Night)

    Receive a warm karibu (welcome) to Kenya, as you touch down at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You'll immediately feel the adventure of Africa when we pick you up at the airport in our 4x4 adventure-ready vehicles. We'll make sure you're settled at your hotel, then the rest of today is all about going pole-pole (slow). Sleep off the jet lag and ease into holiday mode before meeting up with your Costsaver Driver Guide and fellow travellers for a briefing and traditional (and tasty) dinner.

  2. Day 2 Nairobi - Tsavo West National Park Area (1 Night)

    Jump straight into the action today, the vast plains of Tsavo are calling. You'll be heading to Tsavo West National Park, Kenya's largest National Park, and one of the best spots in the country for wildlife spotting. On the journey, your expert Driver Guide will share facts and stories about the park, so you'll arrive ready to have the best experience possible. After lunch at your Safari Camp accommodation, lace up your boots and head out on a guided nature walk within its grounds, keeping a look out for your first glimpses of antelope and other small animal species.

    hotel Voyager Ziwani Safari Camp
  3. Day 3 Tsavo West National Park Area - Amboseli National Park (2 Nights)

    Home to black rhino, elephants, lions and all manner of bird life, waking up in Tsavo West will feel a little like Christmas morning. You'll head out to explore the area, stopping by the lush oasis of Mzima Springs to hopefully spy lounging hippos and crocs who spend lazy days here to avoid the African heat. Swap nature for geology as you visit the Shetani Lava Flows to walk amongst over 50 square kilometres of rippling black lava, before continuing on to Amboseli National Park-home of the legendary Maasai. Top off the day with Optional sundowners, toasting to a day you'll never forget.

    hotel Sentrim Amboseli Camp
  4. Day 4 Amboseli National Park Full Day Safari Game Drive

    In Africa, the early bird gets the best wildlife sightings. Rise before the sun to head out on a morning safari through Amboseli National Park with your Driver Guide in search of leopards, cheetahs and lions. As the sun rises, you'll get to sit back and enjoy the ride whilst watching large herds of African elephants roaming through the park's "salty dust" and high grasses. Enjoy a quick picnic lunch with the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro in the background, in order to make the most of the afternoon safari. Ride back to your lodge as the sun goes down for a delicious dinner and an evening swapping stories of all the animals you spotted.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  5. Day 5 Amboseli National Park - Lake Elementaita (1 Night)

    Another day, another blockbuster. The utterly serene UNESCO listed Lake Elementaita is guaranteed to capture your imagination today, not least because of the multitude of bird species that inhabit this area-some of which can only be found here. See if you can spot the lake's Great White pelicans, greater and lesser flamingos, Yellow-Billed stork, or African spoonbill. If you're a self-proclaimed twitcher or bird enthusiast, welcome to utopia.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    hotel Elementaita Sentrim Lodge
  6. Day 6 Lake Elementaita - Maasai Mara (2 Nights)

    Early riser? We've got just the Optional Experience for you, with the chance to join a naturalist led bird walk to learn more about the featured friends of this region. Prefer a lazy morning? That's OK too. Why not start the day your way, with a lazy breakfast and a cup of steaming coffee whilst admiring the view. Once back together, we'll wave goodbye to Lake Elementaita and cast our eyes to the vast expanse of the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    hotel Mara Sopa Lodge
  7. Day 7 Maasai Mara Full Day Safari Game Drive

    The Massai Mara - just saying the name sends shivers down our spines, and today it's all yours to explore. Accompanied by your Driver Guide, your mission today (should you choose to accept it), is to spot the Big 5. Keeping energy levels high, you'll tuck in to a picnic lunch whilst out in the wild, before continuing the safari adventure into the afternoon. If you're visiting between June to October, you may even get a chance to witness the Great Migration, where vast herds of wildebeest make their annual journey across the plains. Keen to learn more about the culture and people of this ancient land? Our afternoon Optional Experience will give you the chance to visit a Maasai Village, to learn about local life and traditional customs.

    meals Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  8. Day 8 Maasai Mara - Depart Nairobi

    The words of 'Out of Africa' author Karen Blixen will feel especially poignant as you say a final farewell to the Maasai Mara this morning. "If there were one more thing I could do, it would be to go on safari again". Well, never say never, we say! Returning to Nairobi in a haze of wildlife and happy memories, you'll have a quiet afternoon at your hotel ahead of your evening flight. If you already can tell you'll want another day to explore cosmopolitan Nairobi and grab some final gifts, consider staying overnight and flying out the following evening.
