This Classic Kenya Safari Package takes you to Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Amboseli, and Tsavo East, some of the top national parks and game reserves in Kenya. The wildlife safari part will take 8 days, after which you will go to the Kenyan coast for an unwinding beach holiday extension.
We will pick you up at your hotel in Nairobi early in the morning. We can also meet you at the airport (JKIA), if your international flight to Kenya arrives in the morning. After briefing you about the safari, you will depart for Maasai Mara, by road, making a brief stop at the Rift Valley view point along the way.
Check in at the safari lodge upon arrival, followed by lunch and early afternoon relaxation, before going for your first game drive inside the national reserve. You will return to the lodge later in the evening for dinner and overnight.
Accommodation at Mara Sopa Lodge on full board basis.
You will wake up very early, take a cup of coffee, then set out on a morning game drive inside Maasai Mara. The morning game drive offers you a good chance of catching some great wildlife action because the animals are usually more active when the temperatures are cooler.
Return to the lodge for breakfast, then spend the rest of the morning relaxing and enjoying the facilities at the safari lodge.
After lunch, you will have adequate time for a siesta, followed later by an evening game drive in the national reserve.
Alternatively, instead of a morning and afternoon game drive, you can opt for a full day game drive. This is especially recommended during the wildebeest migration season. In this case, you will take an early breakfast, then leave the lodge carrying parked lunch in picnic boxes. You will spend full day exploring the vast plains inhabited by a great variety of big game and plains animals.
