Itinerary

Day 1Tsavo West National Park

o 8 am departure by road from Nairobi or Mombasa for Tsavo West National Park. Arrive in time for lunch then an optional evening game drive. Enjoy memorable evening relaxation and leisure with five star treat at Sentrim Tsavo.
o Tsavo West is the most visited section in Tsavo National Park, offering many attractions apart from its rich wildlife. The foremost is the famous Mzima Springs where up to 227.3 million litters of cool crystal clear water flows out of the ground through porous volcanic rocks serving most of Mombasa city. The water is believed to originate from Chyulu Hills via an underground river.
o Dinner and overnight at the 5-star Sentrim Tsavo.

Day 2Tsavo West National Park

o After early morning breakfast, we have a full day game drive with packed lunch provided. Other interesting places to visit are the Roaring Rocks, which get their name from the wind that hurtles through them. From here there are wonderful views over Tsavo from the top of a 98m rock face; similar views can be experienced from the poachers’ lookout.
o The volcanic Chaimu Crater, less than 200 years old and composed of black coke, is worth visiting and can be climbed if one is interested. The area is a good place to look out for klipspringer, a small antelope that’s as agile as its Swahili name mbuzi mawe (mountain goat).
o In the south west corner of Tsavo West is Lake Jipe, which has the Kenyan-Tanzanian border running through it.
o Dinner and overnight at the 5-star Sentrim Tsavo.

Day 3Amboseli National Park/Mt. Kilimanjaro

o Early Morning start and drive to Amboseli National Park and check-in at your five star Kibo Camp accommodation. Lunch and late afternoon drive to view Mt. Kilimanjaro. Evening leisure time with 5 star treat.
o Amboseli National Park is situated south of Nairobi; most of the park consists of a dry, ancient lake bed and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland, while the southern area there is a number of small, rocky, volcanic hills. Around the swamps Ol Okenya, Ol Tukai and Enkongo Narok, the vegetation is lush with yellow barked acacias and phoenix palms.
o Evening safari is enjoyable in the Kilimanjaro with majestic view of Mt. Kilimanjaro, wildlife retiring for the day and swirling birds.
o Dinner and overnight stay at your 5-star Kibo Camp for a memorable African night dinner treat.

Day 4Amboseli National Park/ Mt. Kilimanjaro

o Rise early for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit. Thereafter visit Maasai village after breakfast. A visit to Maasai village reveals the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is an experience to behold.
o All day safari with packed lunch within Amboseli National Park.
o Despite its changing habitat, Amboseli National Park is possibly the best wildlife area in the whole of Africa to experience elephants at close range include the rare white elephant. Left un-harassed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any Safari!
o Dinner and overnight stay at your 5-star Kibo Camp.

Day 5Lake Naivasha National Park

o An early morning breakfast at Amboseli then drive to Lake Naivasha. It is the highest in terms of elevation and the most beautiful of the Rift Valley lakes. At 1910m (6200f), the water is fresh and the lake is fringed with dense clumps of papyrus, which was once used in ancient Egypt to make paper. Kingfishers use the papyrus as a perch, and herons hide in it while searching for food.
o Here you will enjoy popular bird watching with over 400 bird species recorded in the lake. Lake Naivasha is also a popular weekend retreat for Nairobi expat community for sailing, skiing and fishing, and you get a great opportunity to network in case you are looking to set up in Kenya or just know more about our country.
o Afternoon sailing is common in Lake Naivasha as there are no crocodiles because the water is too cold for them at this high altitude. There are several hippos though that you will enjoy watching from a distance. Along the shores of Lake Naivasha are pristine vineyards producing grapes for Kenya’s growing wine industry.
o Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge.
