Day 1 – Nairobi: Welcome to Kenya! Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya, you will be met by a local representative and assisted through immigration, baggage claim and customs. Once cleared and you have your baggage, exit the arrivals hall where you will be met by your private driver and transferred to your hotel in the leafy suburbs of Karen. This evening, dinner will be served in the Club restaurant (not included). Overnight at The Residences at Karen.

Day 2 – Lake Nakuru: This morning will begin with a visit to the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Karen Blixen Museum and Giraffe Center (entrance fees included) before lunch at Karen Blixen Coffee Gardens. Then, set off down the Rift Valley where some fantastic photo opportunities present themselves – views from the top of the escarpment are stunning. Arrive at your lodge and enjoy the remainder of your day at leisure.  Dinner and overnight at Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge.

Day 3 – Lake Nakuru: Enjoy a full day safari to the Lake Nakuru National Park. The surface of the park’s central lake is sometimes unrecognizable due to a constantly moving pink mass, which upon closer examination are its many resident flamingos. After an afternoon game drive, you will be transferred back to your lodge in time for a lake walk before watching another spectacular African sunset. Dinner and overnight at Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge.

Days 4, 5, & 6 – Masai Mara: This morning, it’s an early start to depart for the Masai Mara National Reserve. The magic of the Mara becomes clear as soon as you enter the reserve’s gates. The vast open plains are home to some of the most spectacular wildlife on Earth. Enjoy twice-daily game drives, optional game walks on the local grounds or relaxation time by the pool during your stay.  Dinner and overnights at Fig Tree Camp.

Day 7 – Masai Mara/Nairobi: After breakfast, you will be transferred to Ol Kiombo Airstrip for your scheduled charter flight to Wilson Airport in Nairobi. After collecting your bags, meet your private driver who will transfer you to Nairobi International Airport in time for your onward flights.
