Day 1: Arrival – Nairobi Airport.
A Precise Destinations tour guide/driver will welcome you at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport upon your arrival and brief you about the 9 Days Exploring Kenya Tour. You will then be transferred to a hotel already booked for you in Nairobi for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 2: Nairobi–Mount Kenya – Samburu National Reserve
Today, depart Nairobi to begin your search for the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. First, stop at the famed Mount Kenya Safari Club for lunch and stunning views of Mount Kenya. After lunch, continue to Samburu National Reserve, known for its arid landscape and unique wildlife. Due to the dry climate, grasses are sparse, making animals easier to spot. Meanwhile, the Ewaso Ng’iro River, which borders the reserve, provides a year-round water supply. These two factors make for a great game-viewing experience. During your afternoon game drive, you have the chance to see rare animals you will not see in other parts of the country. Commonly referred to as the Samburu “Special 5,” this includes Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, beisa oryx, and the gerenuk, a long-necked antelope that feeds while standing on its hind feet.
Day 3: Samburu National Reserve
Today, enjoy Morning & Afternoon Game Drives. In addition to the Samburu “Special 5,” the reserve is home to an abundance of other species. Large numbers of elephant and Nile crocodile can be seen, as well as waterbuck, Kirk’s dik-dik, and Grant’s gazelle. Where there is prey, predators can be found, so lion and leopard are often spotted. The reserve is also a great place for bird watching, with over 300 species. Between game drives, there’s time to relax at your lodge.
Day 4: Samburu – Ol Pejeta Conservancy
After breakfast, travel to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the largest black rhino sanctuary in all of East Africa. After lunch, enjoy a game drive in the conservancy, including a stop at the chimpanzee sanctuary. In partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Jane Goodall Institute, the sanctuary was established to provide a long-term home for orphaned and abused chimpanzees. Here, see the chimps and learn more about their plight.
Day 5: Ol Pejeta – Nyahururu Falls – Lake Nakuru National Park
A final game drive in the conservancy before driving to Lake Nakuru National Park. The journey takes you through the beautiful Kenyan highlands, one of the most fertile agricultural areas in all of Africa, where farmers grow crops such as corn, wheat, coffee, and tea. Stop for lunch at Aberdare Country Club en route.
Day 6: Lake Nakuru
Today, embark on Morning & Afternoon Game Drives. The park is home to a variety of animals including giraffe, impala, Cape buffalo, flamingo, and striped hyena. This is also your best chance to see white rhino, which are commonly spotted here. Relax at your lodge between game drives.
Day 7: Lake Nakuru – Masai Mara National Reserve
This morning, depart for Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s most famous game area. The “Mara,” as it is called by locals, is part of the Serengeti ecosystem and boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives, generally from August to early November, the population enlarges by almost 2 million. This provides a great food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. After lunch at your lodge, set out on an afternoon game drive. As the sun sets, savor sundowner drinks and watch a traditional Masai dance performance..
Day 8: Masai Mara
Rise early for a morning game drive. Be sure to watch for elephant, rhino, giraffe, topi, hyena, and much more. Afterward, a special bush breakfast has been arranged for you. Sip on a mimosa as you savor every moment of the memorable experience! Return to your camp and relax prior to your afternoon game drive.
Day 9: Return to Nairobi – Airport
Today, fly back to Nairobi, and to the airport for your home-bound flight.
