Highlights of the tour
Detailed tour description
"Karibu" in Swahili means hospitable. Hospitable Kenya is happy to welcome you! A representative of Africa Royal Travel will meet you at the airport for a transfer to Amboseli National Park. Travel time is 4 hours. When you arrive at the lodge, you will have a hot and delicious lunch.
Amboseli, translated from the Maasai language, means "salt dust" (because long ago Kilimanjaro was an active volcano and during the eruption covered its surroundings with ash). Amboseli is home to all representatives of the "Big Five" - buffalo, elephants, black rhinos, lions and leopards. The elephant pictured on the backdrop of Kilimanjaro is a picture-perfect representation of Kenya. Although the volcano is located in Tanzania, Amboseli offers the best scenic view of its snow-capped peaks. The mountain, covered with snow and clouds, its mysterious beauty and grandeur complements the landscape of the Amboseli reserve.
An evening safari in Amboseli National Park will bring unforgettable experiences and gorgeous photos. You will be able to wave your good byes to the elephants strolling away to sleep in the direction of Kilimanjaro. And by the way, Amboseli is the only park in Kenya where tourists are allowed to walk. Return to the lodge and dinner.
Good morning! Start the day with breakfast in a lodge with a magnificent view of Kilimanjaro. A beautiful morning, a delightful view. Next you will have a morning safari in Amboseli. Enjoy, watch, admire.
Check out and travel through the Rift Valley to Lake Naivasha. Check in the lodge and lunch. All the lodges we offer are located right on the shore of the lake and it is possible to see various animals, including hippos, which come out of the lake after sunset.
Rest in the lodge where giraffes and other hoofed animals freely stroll around the territory and hippos graze right under your windows at night. An additional boat tour of the lake is possible to observe hippos and eagles hunting for fish for $35 per person.
After breakfast, a full day's trip to the lake Nakuru awaits you.Lake Nakura is comparable in size to Lake Naivasha, but is salty, which causes significant differences in its flora and fauna. Lake Nakuru National Park is not that big, but very interesting - Nakuru is considered one of the best places in Kenya for flamingo sightings and, in addition, it is home to about 70 white and about 25 black rhinos- more than anywhere else in the country.
Lake Nakuru is salty, so unlike the nearby Lake Naivasha, flamingos on its shores are not rare guests, but permanent inhabitants. Flamingos feed on small crustaceans, larvae, worms and algae, which, thanks to the special form of the beak, are extracted from brackish water in shallow water. And the pink color of flamingos is due to carotenoids - red pigment, which is found in small red beams, which are one of the main types of food flamingos. For lunch you will be offered a picnic - lunch right on the lake.
Good morning! It's time for breakfast, after which a boat ride on Lake Naivasha awaits you.Elephants, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes cometo the shores of Lake Naivasha. Hippopotamuses are found in shallow water.
Then a 5-hour drive to Masai Mara National Park (260 km - 4.5 hours), located in the northern part of the Serengeti Valley. This park is proud to be home of the world's largest population of lions. Accommodation in the lodge. Lunch.
An evening safari starting at 16:00 is a great opportunity to have one of the most spectacular and memorable experiences in your life. A ride in powerful 4x4 jeeps through a delightful savannah in the rays of the pre-sunset sun, during which you are given the opportunity to observe the animals inhabiting these fertile places in their natural habitat. You will see the "big five" - a lion, an elephant, a buffalo, a black rhino and a leopard. You will also see rare birds, zebras and antelopes, graceful giraffes and fast cheetahs, and this is far from a complete list of inhabitants of the park, which you will be able to see at close range. Return to the lodge. Dinner.
You will spend the entire day in the Masai Mara National Park. The exceptional beauty of Masai Mara Park, the wide savannah, hills, winding rivers, different species of birds and rare wildlife will leave no one indifferent!
Your day will start at 06:00 - enjoy an early safari in search of wildlife! Some of the species are already resting after a night of hunting, and some only just wakes up and start their day with you. In addition to Big Five, you will be able to observe the spotted hyenas, graceful impala antelopes, Thompson gazelles, Grant's gazelles and topi that also graze here.
A picnic-style lunch awaits you on the banks of the Mara River. A meal by the water overlooking the savannah - what else can a true researcher of Africa dream of? Return to the lodge. Dinner.
Early morning safari in Masai Mara Park. Return to the lodge. After a delicious breakfast, a tour of the Maasai village. It is impossible to come to Kenya and to not visit the Maasai. There are about 40 different tribes in Kenya, of which the Maasai is one of the most colorful. This tribe still holds fast to its culture and has not lost faith in their spirits and pagan gods. Small, up to eight huts Maasai villages are scattered almost all over Kenya. Those that are located near the national parks, have become accustomed to tourists and will meet you with dancing and performances, but even this prepared performance will open a window into the wonderful world and life of these unique people.
Then move to Nairobi airport for a flight home or the opportunity to extend your holiday on the Indian Ocean at Diane Beach. In any case, you are sure to get a lot of positive emotions from the upscale holiday in the All Inclusivehotels.
Have a good trip!

How to equip for a safari
When choosing clothes,you should give preference to inexpressive and non-branded shades of color, like khaki. Day clothes for safari should be light and breathable. In the evening you should resort to long linen pants and a long-sleeved shirt, which will serve as extra protection from mosquitoes.
On safari we will have to leave in the early morning, and at this time of day it can be rather cool, so be sure to bring a warm jacket or a windbreaker. In Africa, during the safari there are almost no walks, so choose shoes in which it is convenient to sit in the car - sneakers or sandals. However, the shoes should have a strong enough sole, so that if you have to walk, you do not pierce your feet with the thorns of acacias.Bring with you on safari:
- long-sleeved shirt and a pair of golf shirts/t-shirts;
- A warm sweater or a light jacket;
- light cotton pants and shorts;
- light sneakers, sandals, slates;
- baseball cap, hat, panama.
Protection from diseases
Most tourists are frightened by two exotic diseases: yellow fever and malaria. Below we will tell you what vaccinations should be done and which are only RECOMMENDED.
1. Yellow fever. To enter most African countries: South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Kenya, yellow fever vaccination certificate is NOT needed. For a visit to Tanzania, yellow fever immunization is a recommended measure, not a mandatory one. However, vaccination is required if you are entering from an epidemiologically dangerous country, which also includes neighboring Kenya.
2. Malaria. The risk of catching malaria does exist in an area with a humid warm climate and a lot of insects, but the chance of encountering a malarial mosquito is almost zero. The vectors of the disease are "tied" to standing water and do not move away from it further than 8 km. Therefore, the risk of being bitten by a malarial mosquito is high only in their places of permanent habitation: lowlands, swamps, near drying bodies of water, etc. But the minimum risk still remains a risk. Therefore, if you want to protect yourself you need to use quality repellents and use special drugs.
Remember, malaria vaccinations don't exist!
