Tour Overview

For the classic romance of an African safari, there’s scarcely a more perfect country than Kenya. From your room in Aberdare National Park, you can watch elephants and rhinos drink from a watering hole. At Lake Nakuru, you’ll spot exotic bird species, including enormous flocks of blossom-pink flamingos. You’ll also spend three nights in the very heart of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, spying the Big Five by day and enjoying generous Kenyan hospitality by night. This Kenya safari experience is ten days of pure wildlife magic.

Highlights

  • Seeing eye-to-eye with the most graceful of creatures, the giraffe

  • Walk on heightened walkways to feed giraffes at eye level - an intimate and unique wildlife moment

  • Enjoy four game drives including two in the Masai Mara Game Reserve

  • VIP door-to-door travel service

Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1 : Uk - Nairobi

Location: Nairobi

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Crowne Plaza Nairobi Airport Hotel (4-star)

Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Nairobi. On arrival we transfer to our hotel for tonight.

Day 2 : Aberdare National Park

Location: Aberdare National Park

Accommodation: The Ark Lodge Aberdare National Park (3.5-star)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning, we travel to Aberdare National Park, encompassing the beautiful, forested Aberdare Mountains and the heart of Kenya’s coffee-growing highlands. We arrive at our lodge, built beside a watering hole, for the start of our Kenya safari holidays.



Rhino and families of elephant are relatively common visitors, slaking their thirst as we settle back this evening. You can enhance your visit, by choosing in-room buzzer alerts during the hours of darkness, to let you know whenever a spectacle is unfolding outside.

Day 3 : Lake Nakuru National Park

Location: Lake Nakuru National Park

Accommodation: Lake Nakuru Lodge (3.5-star)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We depart this morning and head west to Lake Nakuru National Park, stopping along the way at Kenya’s most beautiful waterfall - Thomson Falls. Lake Nakuru is an ornithologist’s paradise, for hundreds of exotic species that call its shores home. At ground level, sightings of Rothschild giraffe, black and white rhino, lion and leopard are not unusual.



Our lodge tonight has commanding views over the lake, and is a great base for wetland game drives - we’ll enjoy our first one late this afternoon.

Day 4 : Lake Nakuru National Park - Lake Naivasha National Park

Location: Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Naivasha National Park

Accommodation: Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort (3.5-star) or Lake Naivasha Country Club (4-star)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After another exciting game drive early this morning, we make our way to another of the lakes of Africa’s Great Rift Valley - Lake Naivasha. This natural oasis teems with animal life, from hippo and buffalo wallowing among the papyrus reeds to giraffes nibbling the acacia, Colobus monkeys leaping from tree to tree and birds adding flashes of colour and exotic calls.



There’s time to relax this afternoon and just listen to the wildlife around you.

Day 5 : Lake Naivasha National Park

Location: Lake Naivasha National Park

Accommodation: Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort (3.5-star) or Lake Naivasha Country Club (4-star)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning we explore the Crescent Island Game Conservancy, a reserve located on the eastern side of the lake and a haven for viewing birds and game.



We’ll also make a stop at Elsamere, for a tasty afternoon tea. This small museum is the former home of Joy Adamson, author of ‘Born Free’, which was later turned into a hit film.

Day 6 : Maasai Mara Game Reserve

Location: Maasai Mara National Reserve

Accommodation: Camp, Ashnil Mara Maasai Mara Game Reserve (5-star)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

No Kenya highlights tour would be complete without a stay in the Maasai Mara. Renowned not only for its year-round concentration of animals, which we’ll view on our next safari experience this afternoon, but also for its location directly in the path of the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra.



We arrive at our camp, located in the very heart of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, and head out on our first exploration.

Day 7 : Maasai Mara Game Reserve

Location: Maasai Mara National Reserve

Accommodation: Camp

Accommodation Name: Ashnil Mara Camp, Maasai Mara Game Reserve (5-star)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

During our two full days in the Maasai Mara it would be no surprise to see prides of lion on one of our game drives, or the fastest land mammal, the cheetah, hunting gazelle on the open plains. Keep an eye out too for a host of other large mammals, numerous pods of hippo that patrol the nearby river and a selection of the Mara’s hundreds of species of bird.

Day 9

We begin our journey back to Nairobi, stopping along the way at a typical Maasai village to meet the locals and see how their daily life unfolds. In Nairobi, we’ll visit the Giraffe Centre for an up-close meeting with endangered Rothschild’s giraffes.
Later, transfer to the airport for your overnight return flight to the UK.

Day 9 : Maasai Mara - Nairobi - In Flight

Location: Maasai Mara National Reserve, Nairobi

Accommodation: In flight

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

We begin our journey back to Nairobi, stopping along the way at a typical Maasai village to meet the locals and see how their daily life unfolds. In Nairobi, we’ll visit the Giraffe Centre for an up-close meeting with endangered Rothschild’s giraffes.

Recently returned from the great...

08-Apr-2024

Recently returned from the great Indian rail journey.My wife and I could hardly believe the value for money.From pick ups from Durham to Heathrow and back,to the number of coach and train journeys , quality hotels, great choice of food throughout and our first night in Heathrow Hilton. What really made our trip a success was our guide, Prashant,who managed a party of twenty four very varied, sometimes a little unpredictable travellers with ease.Nothing was too much trouble for him and as a group we gelled and warmed to Prashant as he kept us safe, well informed and a little entertained by his mix of authority and humanity.Where do I begin with the tour itself ? India,a country of extremes.Poverty,wealth,order,chaos.Sometimes bleak,often breathtakingly beautiful.The people,the cities,art, architecture,flaura and fauna.Delhi,Jaipur, Amritsar,Agra, Ranthambore, Chandigarh and the icing on the cake that is Shimla. An absolute masterclass of man versus nature,the railway and buildings are an unbelievable feat,but wait until you see the dual carriageway being built on the mountainside.🤯I could go on for a very long time but I'll just post some photos.Thanks to Titan,thanks to the excellent Prashant and and a massive thanks to the other twenty two travellers who helped shape our holiday of a lifetime.🏁💜

Exceptional trip and service by Titan

04-Oct-2022

Just returned from a fabulous tour of California & the golden west. It’s a full on tour with early starts but you see so much varied landscape from the ocean to the desert to Yosemite. My 2nd tour with Titan & my first solo tour. Thoroughly enjoyed it & met some great people. Grand Canyon was amazing would definitely recommend

Not merely a holiday, rather a memorable experience

29-Dec-2022

I have used other travel operators; this was the 1st time of touring with Titan----Israel, The Holy Land, from being collected from home and returned at the end of the holiday this was an unforgettable experience; the Tour Manager, a PhD Archaeology made the whole tour so interesting, he enlightened us throughout each day from an historical, archeological and Biblical viewpoint, bringing each site we visited come to life, and went over and above his remit escorting us for evening trips around the local area; thanks also to our very patient driver who coped with the very busy traffic; our hotels were good, professional and pleasant staff and really good food; I would recommend Titan to anyone looking for a fascinating tour with excellent efficient service thank you Titan nor just for a holiday for a memorable experience

Particular credit goes to our guide THI who is a caring, knolegeable, friendly down to earth man who made our trip a memorable one. I will not hesitate to book another holiday through Titan, their staff are friendly and helpful

We had a fantastic holiday...

26-May-2023

We had a fantastic holiday in Mississippi. Right from our chauffeur driven car picking us up to the return journey, we had a great time. The first hotel The Gaylord was amazing,absolutely huge,first class. The second The Double tree in Memphis unfortunately wasn't, the hotel was tired and very basic, the only plus was where it is situated in the centre of town, we were only there two nights so it wasn't to bad. The American Queen Steam Boat was first class all the way, thoroughly enjoyed the seven nights sailing down the Mississippi. The last hotel the Sheraton New Orleans was very comfortable too. Our guide throughout our time away was Laura Tuttle. she was amazing, very knowledgeable, and helpful. We also had a coach driver Guil, who went over and beyond to give you the best time. Other coach guides included Jim,who was so funny, and also very knowledgeably. Very entertaining throughout. The entire itinerary itinerary was very well thought out, included a huge variety of visits to different Interesting locations. Highly recommend using Titan for all your holiday destinations.

THE GREAT INDIAN RAIL JOURNEY!!!!...

03-Feb-2024

THE GREAT INDIAN RAIL JOURNEY!!!! (Dreadful) Avoid Titan and Saga at all costs. False descriptions of the tour and dreadful administration Returned to the UK last evening with a great sigh of relief after the worst holiday ever. 1. No block booking of airplane seats by Titan. (Husband and I sat apart on the long, overnight flight) 2. Unable to pre-book seats as Titan reference numbers did not coincide with anything. 3. Husband and I not sat together on any of the train journeys! In fact, on one occasion I was sat, alone on a sleeper carriage, a couple of carriages away from the rest of the group who were scattered over two or three carriages. Terrifying as a female to be sat alone in the midst of noisy locals!!!!! (Eventually the guide, Rahi, did come to rescue me and found a seat near the main group) 4. The guide, Rahi, would usually get off the coach and begin walking off without waiting for all the group to disembark the coach. (Spot the guide in the crowd!) 5. The guide, Rahi, refused to use any identifying prop such as a flag, hat, jacket or umbrella. Frightening to be in the manic crowds of Delhi and other crowded places to be unable to see the guide. 6. NO AUDIO HEADSET system on any excursion 7. The guide, Rahi, didn’t face the whole group, but stood sideways on and was unable to be heard by the majority. 8. OUTRAGEOUS behaviour by the guide when he enquired as to the whereabouts of my husband, whom I explained was in bed with an upset stomach and was feeling unwell. Rahi DID A REVERSE AIR PUNCH😳😳. This was in response to an earlier conversation when my husband had complained about our separate seating arrangements. TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL 9. When we arrived at Heathrow to find our aircraft seats were not allocated, we were advised to speak to our guide on arrival at Delhi. Rahi merely shrugged his shoulders and said he couldn’t do anything. 10. Tour pace incorrect - gruelling pace and only half a day relaxation due to the guide, Rahi, throwing in visits to shops and factories fie him to earn his commission as I head him tell another!!!!!!! 11. When off loaded the return flight due to illness, we were unable to get in contact with Titan/Saga. Left in Delhi without an hotel or flight!!! Found accommodation but didn’t remove shoes or clothes due to the poor standard. Final summary: Poor, disappointing, inefficient, incompetent, misleading, misrepresentations, are just a few words to describe.

Luxury VIP door to door...

17-Jul-2023

Luxury VIP door to door travel! I don't think so....Titan sent a Toyota Prius uber to Stanstead for a return journey to Newport, S Wales. 4 adults plus luggage! the experience was anything but luxurious. Contacted Titan on the return journey and since return. They simply didn't seem interested and offered us a £300 travel discount off a future trip! After a lot of emails they converted it to a £300 cash refund. Give it a lot of thought before booking !
