At Sunset head back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Amboseli.

Rising early for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit with packed lunch provided, an optional visit to a Masai village can be planned after breakfast. A visit reveals the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience. Despite its changing habitat, Amboseli National Park is possibly the best wildlife area in the whole of Africa to experience elephant at close range. Less harassed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any Safari. Evening Relaxation at the Lodge followed by Dinner.

Day 4: Amboseli – Lake Naivasha.

An early morning drive to Lake Naivasha, it is the highest 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 (ancient Egyptian once used this to make paper). Kingfishers use the papyrus as a perch, herons hide in it while searching for food.
After Lunch we will head out for a boat ride searching for the hippo families and variety of bird species found here. We then proceed to Crescent Island for a Walking Safari where you interact with the Giraffes, Wildebeest, Zebras and antelopes taking up-close photos and enjoying the views. We ride back to the mainland  and transfer you back to the hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 5: Lake Naivasha – Maasai Mara.

Depart early morning to Maasai Mara National Reserve. Arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive. Mara holds on as one of the few places on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once roamed the plains and forests of Africa. As the northern tip of the vast Serengeti ecosystem, the Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of Wildebeest, Zebras and attendant predators.

Day 6 & 7: Maasai Mara.

After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, with packed lunch provided. The reserve is well known for its black- manned lion, as well as its abundant resident wildlife and its one of the few places where it’s possible to see the big five during a morning’s game drive. Optional Hot Air Balloon Ride Early Morning
