ITINERARY:

Hujambo! Welcome to Kenya. Your Out Adventures rep will meet you at the airport then transfer you to the hotel. Things kick off with our Group Meeting at 4PM and Welcome Dinner this evening.

After check-out we have a comfortable 4.5 hour drive to Amboseli, which sits in the shadow of Kilimanjaro – Africa’s tallest mountain. Enjoy an early check-in at our luxurious safari camp, with sumptuous mountain-view tents that feature generous beds, fine linens, ensuite washrooms and large balconies. There will be a game drive after lunch, followed by dinner at sunset. Be sure to step out onto your private veranda this evening to look up at the crystal clear constellations.

Today is fully devoted to exploring Amboseli with morning and afternoon game drives. The park is 392sq.km. / 151sq.mi. in size. It’s considered to offer some of the best wildlife-viewing IN THE WORLD! Don't forget to pack your binoculars as the park hosts 400 species of birds including pelicans, kingfishers, and hammerkops.

After check-out we have a 5.5 hour drive via Nairobi to Lake Naivasha. It’s the highest lake in the Rift Valley, and residents include hippos and crocodiles. After lunch, enjoy a 1-hour boat ride and Crescent Island walk and take in flocks of flamingos and other aquatic birds and thirsty mammals. After that, check in to your spacious room at our next camp, which is traditional in style and sits on the edge of a pond amongst the trees. After dinner, unwind at your leisure.

A morning game drive follows breakfast. The park is a sanctuary for Rothschild giraffes, leopards, and black and white rhinos. After a late lunch, enjoy the rest of the afternoon at your leisure, followed by dinner. Take a dip in the pool, relax in your private suite with a good book or indulge in the lodge’s other incredible amenities.

Today we have a 6-7 hour drive via Narok to Masai Mara National Reserve. It offers wonderful scenery, plenty of game, and is one of the last places in Kenya to experience how abundant the animals were a century ago. Enjoy an early check-in and lunch at a luxurious tented camp near the Mara River, famous for the wildebeest migration and other great vistas. This afternoon’s game drive is followed by a sunset dinner.

Another full day at the reserve includes morning and afternoon game drives, and wraps with a special surprise for dinner. Keep an eye out for the abundant giraffe, buffalo, zebra, eland, hartebeest and Thompson's gazelle. All of which are a rich choice for top predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs. You will also see nomadic tribesmen herding their cattle amongst the plains.

Enjoy one last day in the reserve, with morning and afternoon game drives to bid the animals adieu. Tonight we’ll celebrate with a Farewell Dinner, sharing our incredible photos from the past week.

After breakfast we’ll check out and head for Nairobi. There’ll be time for lunch and some final souvenir shopping before your flight home. Safe travels!
