Karibu! Your Kenyan safari adventure begins in the capital, Nairobi, where you will be met at the airport by a Trafalgar Representative and transferred to your hotel.

Location: Nyeri

Accommodation: The Ark Lodge

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Leave the hustle and bustle of Nairobi behind and embark on a 4 x 4 journey north to Aberdare National Park. En route you'll 'Connect With Locals ' during a 'Be My Guest' experience in the highlands of central Kenya. Join Elizabeth, a local farmer, for a delicious treat of freshly baked scones and coffee, made from the beans of her on site coffee plantation. You'll have an opportunity to visit the plantation and Elizabeth's extensive farm gardens before settling in for a hearty local lunch. Tonight you'll stay in The Ark Lodge, one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories', offering spectacular opportunities to view the resident birdlife and wildlife.

icon Day 3: Aberdare National Park - Samburu National Reserve (2 Nights)

Location: Samburu

Accommodation: Ashnil Samburu

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We'll leave the lush greenery of the Kenya highlands region behind as we journey to the contrasting arid landscapes of Samburu National Reserve. As you continue your safari adventure here, you'll hopefully have the chance to tick the 'Samburu Special 5' off your list as you track such species as the Grevy's Zebra and the Reticulated Giraffe found only in the northern Kenya region. Your accommodation tonight is a luxury tented camp on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River.

icon Day 4: Samburu National Reserve Safari Game Drives

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Made famous in the award-winning book and movie Born Free, Samburu National Reserve was the home of Elsa, the famous lioness raised by conservationists George and Joy Adamson. Rise early with the birds and embark on a morning game drive through acacia forest and expansive grasslands in search of wildlife. Relax at your camp on your return then head out back out into the savannah on a late afternoon game drive.

icon Day 5: Samburu National Reserve - Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Location: Nanyuki

Accommodation: Sweetwaters Serena Tented Camp

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The plight of Africa’s rhinos takes centre stage today during a poignant visit to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. This morning you’ll learn about their efforts to fight poaching in East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary and enjoy a quick photo stop at the point where the equator slices through the conservancy. Next up is a visit to Sweetwaters Sanctuary to meet the cheeky resident orphaned or rescued chimpanzees. Then continue to your accommodation tonight, keeping a keen eye out this evening for thirsty wildlife that come to the floodlit on site waterhole to drink after a dry day in the African wilderness.

icon Day 6: Ol Pejeta Conservancy - Lake Nakuru National Park

Location: Nakuru

Accommodation: Lake Nakuru Lodge

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Have your camera ready for a photo stop at the spectacular Thomson's Falls. Visit the bird watcher's paradise that is Lake Nakuru National Park, then join your Driver Guide for an afternoon game drive to spot pink flamingos lining the lakeshore and to search for lion and leopard.

Location: Keekorok

Accommodation: Keekorok Lodge

icon Day 8: Maasai Mara Full Day Safari Game Drive

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Farewell Dinner

Don your hat and polish those binoculars for a full day of safari in Maasai Mara's wilderness. When you're not traversing the savannah in search of the Big 5, you'll 'Dive Into Culture' and join a Maasai community in their local village. Watch the colourfully clad warriors demonstrate their jumping prowess, then tour the village to gain in-depth insights into their daily life. Later, indulge in a bush picnic - the sounds of the bush the perfect accompaniment while you keep your eyes peeled for the flash of resident Bee-eaters, Rollers and Hoopoes flitting from tree to tree.

Your Kenyan safari adventure at its end, you'll return to Nairobi, where a day room has been reserved at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel for you to use prior to your evening flight home.
