Day by day
Itinerary in detail

1

Arrival in Nairobi

Welcome to Kenya. Upon arrival in Nairobi, a local representative will be waiting at the airport to transfer you to your comfortable hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax ahead of your safari adventure. Overnight at Fairmont The Norfolk.

2

Nairobi & Amboseli

After breakfast, depart Nairobi on a 5-hour drive to Amboseli National Park, close to the Tanzanian border. Amboseli is a photographer’s paradise boasting unparalleled views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro and some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets you’re likely to see anywhere. After refreshing at your award-winning eco lodge, enjoy an al fresco lunch with superb views of Africa’s highest peak, then head out on an afternoon game drive in the national park. Overnight at Tawi Lodge.

Things to do:

3

Amboseli

Today, enjoy two game drives in Amboseli. The national park has a large concentration of wildlife including over 1,000 elephants. You’ll hopefully get to see them taking a dip in the snowmelt-fed swamps. As well as the huge herds, you may catch sight of buffalo and lion in the rolling hills and open savannah. Another great option is a guided bush walk through the community-run Kilitome Conservancy. Back at camp enjoy a swim in the large pool or take in the views of the watering hole where wildlife including zebra, giraffe, and warthogs come to drink. Overnight at Tawi Lodge.

Things to do:

4

Amboseli & Tsavo

After breakfast, drive for 2-hours to Tsavo West National Park. The landscape here is spectacularly varied, with semi-arid plains, open grasslands, dense woodlands, rocky outcrops and lava flows. Your base for the next 2-nights is a luxury tented camp with a natural spring, home to a resident pod of hippos, crocodiles and various birdlife. You’ll spend the afternoon on a game drive, in search of the spectacular herds of ‘red elephants' that the park is famous for. Their unusual colouring stems from the rich red dust and soil that they cover themselves in. Return to camp for a gourmet dinner and an evening of stargazing from the observation deck. Overnight at Finch Hattons.

Things to do:

5

Tsavo

Head out on a full-day game drive in historic Tsavo West. As well as its dust red elephants, the park is home to an abundance of other wildlife including rhino, buffalo, leopard, lion, waterbuck, lesser kudu, giraffe and the rare gerenuk. You’ll also visit the popular Mzima Springs, a series of sparkling pools fed by underground streams. An underwater viewing chamber offers the chance to observe hippos and crocodiles beneath the surface of these wildlife-rich pools. Back at camp you can swim in the infinity pool, visit the largest spa in East Africa, or try a yoga class in the bush. There’s also the option of a thrilling night game drive. Overnight at Finch Hattons.

Things to do:

6

Tsavo & Diani

With your safari completed it’s time for some well-earned R&R. After breakfast you’ll drive for 6-hours to Diani on Kenya’s coast. Here you’ll spend the next 5-nights soaking up the Indian Ocean views from your beachfront resort. With just ten rooms, Afrochic feels more like an exclusive villa than a hotel. The surroundings offer plenty of beach and water-based activities, like exploring the reef at low tide with a local fisherman or joining a small group snorkelling trip to the Kisite-Mpunguti Marine Park. Overnight at Elewana AfroChic.

Alfred & Daniel Heatly

Upon leaving university, Daniel blindly placed a pin into a map (we kid you not!) to select South Africa as the first destination he ever travelled to. This was the beginning of a 23 year love affair with African travel. Subsequent adventures have taken him to Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia, meeting new people and discovering new experiences along the way.
