Itinerary

Expand All
1 Arrive Nairobi
Karibu! Your Kenyan safari adventure begins in the capital, Nairobi, where you will be met at the airport by a Trafalgar Representative and transferred to your hotel. Spend the evening with your fellow explorers and your Driver Guide enjoying a delicious Welcome Reception at the world-famous Carnivore restaurant.

The full duration of this itinerary is operated by a 4 X 4 safari vehicle, including all road travel and safari game drives. The trip will travel over a variety of terrains, resulting in some rough and bumpy journeys. (WR) Stay Two Nights: Tamarind Tree
2 Nairobi Sightseeing
'Make A Difference' this morning during your visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Here you'll learn about the organisation's acclaimed Orphans' Project which provides hope for the future of Kenya's threatened elephant and rhino populations. Watch the resident baby elephants wallowing in their daily mud bath, then travel to the leafy suburb of Karen for lunch followed by a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum, the former home of the famous Danish 'Out of Africa' author who chose Kenya as her home. (B/L)
3 Nairobi - Samburu National Reserve
Leave the hustle and bustle of Nairobi behind and embark on a 4x4 journey north through the Mt. Kenya region. Continue your safari adventure with an afternoon game drive in Samburu National Reserve, tracking such species as the Grevy's Zebra and the Reticulated Giraffe endemic to the northern Kenya region. Your accommodation tonight is a luxury tented camp on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. (B/L/D) Stay Two Nights: Ashnil Samburu Camp
4 Samburu National Reserve Safari Game Drives
Made famous in the award-winning book and movie Born Free, Samburu National Reserve was the home of Elsa, the famous lioness raised by conservationists George and Joy Adamson. Rise early with the birds and embark on a morning game drive through acacia forest and expansive grasslands in search of wildlife. Relax at your camp on your return then head out back out into the savannah on a late afternoon game drive. (B/L/D)
5 Samburu National Reserve - Aberdare National Park
Journey south to Aberdare National Park, where en route you'll 'Connect With Locals' over the robust aromas of coffee during a 'Be My Guest' experience on a plantation in the highlands of central Kenya. You'll have an opportunity to sample some of the local coffee and learn how your hosts are part of a cooperative system from production through to sale. Stay overnight in one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - The Ark Lodge. Reminiscent of Noah's Ark, this accommodation offers four viewing areas from which to observe the endemic bird and animal species which frequent the on-site waterhole and salt lick. (B/BMG/D) Stay: The Ark Lodge
6 Aberdare National Park - Lake Nakuru National Park
Have your camera ready for a photo stop at the spectacular Thomson's Falls before connecting with the soul of Africa's Great Rift Valley. Visit the bird watcher's paradise that is Lake Nakuru National Park, then join your Driver Guide for an afternoon game drive to spot pink flamingos lining the lakeshore and to search for lion and leopard. (B/L/D) Stay: Lake Nakuru Lodge
7 Lake Nakuru National Park - Maasai Mara National Reserve
Your journey continues to the world-renowned Maasai Mara National Reserve, your home for the next two nights. During your time here, spend some time at your lodge's watering hole where large pods of hippo can often be seen. (B/L/D) Stay Two Nights: Keekorok Lodge
8 Maasai Mara Full Day Safari Game Drive
Don your hat and polish those binoculars for a full day of safari in Maasai Mara's wilderness. When you're not traversing the savannah in search of the Big 5, you'll 'Dive Into Culture' and join a Maasai community in their local village. Watch the colourfully clad warriors demonstrate their jumping prowess, then tour the village to gain in-depth insights into their daily life. Later, indulge in a bush picnic - the sounds of the bush the perfect accompaniment while you keep your eyes peeled for the flash of resident Bee-eaters, Rollers and Hoopoes flitting from tree to tree. (B/L/FD)
9 Maasai Mara National Reserve - Depart Nairobi
Your Kenyan safari adventure at its end, you'll return to Nairobi, where a day room has been reserved for you at one of Nairobi's airport hotels prior to your evening flight home. (B)

2 Nairobi - Aberdare National Park
Leave the hustle and bustle of Nairobi behind and embark on a 4 x 4 journey north to Aberdare National Park. En route you'll 'Connect With Locals ' during a 'Be My Guest' experience in the highlands of central Kenya. Join Elizabeth, a local farmer, for a delicious treat of freshly baked scones and coffee, made from the beans of her on site coffee plantation. You'll have an opportunity to visit the plantation and Elizabeth's extensive farm gardens before settling in for a hearty local lunch. Tonight you'll stay in The Ark Lodge, one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories', offering spectacular opportunities to view the resident birdlife and wildlife. (B/L/D) Stay: The Ark Lodge
3 Aberdare National Park - Samburu National Reserve (2 Nights)
We'll leave the lush greenery of the Kenya highlands region behind as we journey to the contrasting arid landscapes of Samburu National Reserve. As you continue your safari adventure here, you'll hopefully have the chance to tick the 'Samburu Special 5' off your list as you track such species as the Grevy's Zebra and the Reticulated Giraffe found only in the northern Kenya region. Your accommodation tonight is a luxury tented camp on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. (B/L/D) Stay: Ashnil Samburu

5 Samburu National Reserve - Ol Pejeta Conservancy
The plight of Africa's rhinos takes centre stage today during a poignant visit to Ol Pejeta Conservancy. This morning you'll learn about their efforts to fight poaching in East Africa's largest black rhino sanctuary and enjoy a quick photo stop at the point where the equator slices through the conservancy. Next up is a visit to Sweetwaters Sanctuary to meet the cheeky resident orphaned or rescued chimpanzees. Then continue to your accommodation tonight, keeping a keen eye out this evening for thirsty wildlife that come to the floodlit on site waterhole to drink after a dry day in the African wilderness. (B/L/D) Stay: Sweetwaters Serena Tented Camp
