Day 1: Pick up from Nairobi Airport, Drive to Masai Mara National Reserve
Welcome to Nairobi, the capital of Kenya! According to your flight schedule, we will pick you up from Nairobi airport on time, and then transfer you in a 4x4 land cruiser with pop-up roof to the famous Masai Mara National Reserve, which takes around 5.5 hours on the way. As the most spectacular wildlife reserve in Kenya, Masai Mara is diverse in animal species, great in eco-systems, and large in size. Once you arrive in Masai Mara, you will check into a luxury tended camp and have a good rest.

Friendly Tip:
If your flight arrives in the late afternoon, you're recommended to arrive one day earlier and spend one night in Nairobi. 

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Ashnil Mara Camp (4 stars)

Day 2: Full day Masai Mara game drive safari
Your entire day will be devoted to Masai Mara National Reserve, which is an animal paradise consisting of plains, woodlands, and riparian forests and covers an area of 1,672 square kilometers (646 square miles). The vast meadows are dotted with herds of zebras, giraffes, antelopes, and wildebeests; the acacia trees are teeming with birds and monkeys, and the Mara River is trailed by hippos and crocodiles. Surely, you cannot miss the famous African Big Five, including elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos and rhinos. Your safari guide will take you to drive through the reserve and look for various animals. 

If you happen to come here during July to October, when huge groups of wildebeests, zebras and antelopes carry on their annual migration across the Mara River from the southern Serengeti National Park of Tanzania in pursuit of more lush green grass, you will have a greater chance to see the spectacular scenes of lion hunting and crocodile preying on wildebeest. After an exhilarating safari, you will be driven back to the camp and enjoy your dinner. 

Friendly Tip:
You're suggested to have a hearty breakfast in the morning. Around noon, you will enjoy a picnic lunch and we will prepare the food for you in advance.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Ashnil Mara Camp (4 stars)

Day 3: Drive to Lake Nakuru, Afternoon bird watching game drive
After breakfast today, we will drive for around 5 hours to Lake Nakuru National Park, which is a park specially established for the protection of birds. Located at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley in East Africa, it contains a high concentration of salt and alkali, which provides good conditions for algae breeding. The algae are the main food for flamingos. Thus, this place is also known as "flamingo paradise". More than two million flamingos live in this area, which counts a third of the world's total flamingo. On your arrival, your driver guide will help you check into the lodge and you will enjoy lunch. 

After a short break, we will take an afternoon safari around the lake. In addition to various kinds of birds, you will also see zebras, baboons and even the endangered white rhinos. In addition to the exciting game drive, the clear water, lush greenery, and free ecological atmosphere will make this excursion delightful. After the trip, we will head back to the lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Lake Nakuru Lodge - one of the best lodges in Lake Nakuru

Day 4: Continue to drive to Amboseli National Park
Today, we will drive for around 7 hours to Amboseli National Park. Although the journey is quite long, you will enjoy an opportunity to see the stunning views of the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in Africa with an elevation of 5,895 meters (19,000 ft). Besides, you may also encounter the scenes of lions hunting or cheetahs dueling, which will be one of the most exciting parts of your trip. Stop anywhere you want to capture the wonderful scenes. These unexpected surprises on the road will make the long journey easier and more enjoyable. Upon arrival, we will check into the lodge in Amboseli National Park and have dinner.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Amboseli Serena Lodge (4 stars)

Day 5: Enjoy full day game drive in Amboseli
Today's tour will enable you to fully explore Amboseli National Park, which is one of the highlights of your Kenya tour. The park has a huge variety of animals, among which the intelligent, warm and gentle elephants are recognized as the stars. Other fantastic activities that you cannot miss include overlooking the Mountain Kilimanjaro, watching huge herds of wildebeests, and encountering African animals, like impalas, leopards, lions, giraffes, and zebras. The Observation Hill, a viewing platform, will offer the best panoramic view of the whole park for you. Next to the sightseeing platform lies wetlands, where you may see white rhinos, hippos, buffalos, and many birds, especially flocks of flamingos.
