You'll arrive in good time for lunch. Thereafter, you'll embark on your first game drive this afternoon to experience this wildlife conservation haven famous for an abundance of black and white rhinos and other herbivores and carnivores that call this place home, returning at sunset.

Ol Pejeta is a wonderful place for black and white rhinos, the Big Five, and over 500 bird species, all with mountain and savannah views. The conservancy protects the earth's last two surviving northern white rhinos, as well as rescued chimpanzees.

The forested area below the Rhinos cliff is a favourite lion-spotting point where lionesses love to sleep in the trees, and leopards frequent the same area.

Today after breakfast, you will drive through the Rift Valley floor to Masai Mara National Reserve arriving at the lodge
in good time for lunch. You will embark on your first game drive in the reserve this afternoon in search of the Big Five and other herbivores that roam around in this beautiful savanna. You will return to your lodge at sunset for dinner and an overnight stay.

One of our favourite places to look for wildlife in Kenya is the Masai Mara National Reserve.

There's a very good chance you'll also see giraffes, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, hippos, hyenas, and, of course, impalas. Bring your binoculars, because more than 500 species of birds have been recorded in the reserve. It's a place of beautiful savannah landscapes as well, with lots of acacia trees.

This is a full day spent game viewing across the rich tree-studded grassland and rolling hills of the famous "Eighth Wonder of the Animal World." The Mara is renowned for its great herds of plains game animals like leopards, cheetahs and lions. It also has numerous elephants and virtually every other type of wildlife to be found in Kenya.

price. rejoin your guide for a full-day game drive.

Boat rides on Lake Naivasha are refreshing experiences that take you on the breezy lake waters as you explore the diverse birdlife and wildlife on the lake and its surroundings. You will have a brief nature walk on the Island, which is a great opportunity to appreciate nature at the Island. Thereafter if time allows, proceed to Hell's Gate National Park for a cycling or walking excursion with animals at this beautiful and scenic park which inspired the Lion King movie( The only national park in Kenya where you ride bicycles with the wild animals. You will return to the hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.

Amboseli National Park (392sq km) is famously known for the breathtaking panoramic view of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest freestanding mountain on earth and the tallest in Africa (5,895m). Amboseli is also an elephant’s paradise where the massive African savannah elephants roam from swamp to swamp, grazing all day. Because of the abundance of water and pasture, the bull elephants here weigh up to 6 tons. Other animals to be spotted here are cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, wildebeests (gnus), gazelles, hippos, and many others.

You will leave the camp after breakfast, carrying your packed lunch to be enjoyed in the wild. You'll spend the whole day exploring the marshlands and swamps of Amboseli which are fed by subterranean water channels. Water is abundant throughout the year and so is the pasture. Elephants and various other herbivores are found here. You will retreat to the lodge late in the afternoon after a long exploration of this 392sq km park.

You also have an option of starting the day with an early morning game drive to search for animals when they're at their most active. Then, you'll return to the lodge for a relaxed breakfast and lunch.
