Itinerary

01

Day 1: Nairobi

Arrive at any time. Arrival transfer included.
Our trips throughout Kenya and Tanzania have a maximum group size of six travellers in addition to a CEO and a driver who are both trained safari guides. That means everyone gets a window seat and twice the insight about the astounding wildlife all around you.

02

Day 2: Nairobi/Lake Nakuru National Park

Drive to Lake Nakuru National Park. Arrive at our our safari lodge inside the park for lunch. Enjoy a late afternoon wildlife safari drive, paying special attention to the rare rhinos who make this area their home.

03

Day 3: Lake Nakuru National Park

Head out on morning and afternoon safari drives in the park, over lunch you have time to relax at the lodge and enjoy the beautiful pool and gardens. Gain a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding poaching and rhino conservation during a lecture by an accredited speaker from the Kenya Wildlife Service.

04

Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park/Lake Naivasha

Head south through the Great Rift Valley to Lake Naivasha, where we embark on boat cruise on the lake, visiting the Crescent Island wildlife sanctuary.
The name Naivasha comes from the Maasai “Nai'posha”, which means “rough water”, though Lake Naivasha is generally calm as we watch for hippos, crocodiles, and birdlife. Bring your binoculars and scan for lovebirds, ibis, and fish eagles, watch buffaloes wallow in the swamps and listen to colobus monkeys call from the treetops.

05

Day 5: Lake Naivasha/Masai Mara

Travel to our comfortable tented camp located in the heart of the reserve. Enjoy a wildlife safari drive this evening, then settle back at the camp and enjoy views overlooking the plains of the reserve.
After breakfast, we depart for the world famous Masai Mara National Reserve. With its vast open plains and flat-topped acacia trees, no visit to Kenya would be complete without a visit here. In the afternoon, we will arrive in the area, and get settled at our safari camp, our base for our time here. Then we'll make our way into the reserve for an afternoon wildlife safari drive, with excellent chances of seeing the "big five": buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino.

06

Day 6: Masai Mara

Enjoy an early morning wildlife safari drive. The day continues with more wildlife viewing as you cross the rolling hills of the African savannah. Also enjoy a late afternoon/evening safari.

07

Day 7: Masai Mara/Nairobi

After a morning wildlife safari drive, we start heading back to Kenya's capital. En route, stop in at a G Adventures for Good-supported project, Ubuntu Café — an initiative that trains and creates local jobs for women. Visit the craft centre, meet some of the Mamas in the program, then sit down to a delicious farm-to-table lunch.
Rise early for a final morning wildlife safari drive, enjoying the African sun as it rises over the savannah of the Mara plains. Return to Nairobi in the late afternoon and opt to join the CEO in a farewell dinner.

08

Day 8: Nairobi/Arusha

Fly to Arusha, gateway to the Serengeti and the northern parks of Tanzania.

09

Day 9: Arusha/Lake Manyara National Park

Visit Mto wa Mbu village for a guided cultural walk and a traditional lunch with a local family. Continue to our safari camp located outside Lake Manyara National Park. The camp provides unobstructed views of the Rift Valley Escarpment. Embark on an afternoon wildlife safari drive with phenomenal wildlife viewing and search out the famed tree-climbing lions.
This western wall of the Rift Valley escarpment is truly stunning. It provides a backdrop for your search of the park's bird life, tree-climbing lions, elephants, hippos, and baboons. The afternoon is spent viewing wildlife along the main road that winds through a lush, cool forest that's dominated by large ficus trees covered in bromeliads and ferns.

10

Day 10: Lake Manyara National Park/Serengeti National Park

Travel through the Rift Valley and visit a Maasai village to learn about the Maasai people and the G Adventures-supported Clean Cookstove project. Enjoy an exclusive presentation by one of the Maasai women and hear how participation in the project has impacted her life and empowered other females around her. Take a guided tour of the village, meet the women that have been trained as stove engineers, visit bomas (traditional homes), and observe (or get your hands dirty) by helping the Stove Team build a stove in a home. After, stop at the Olduvai Gorge Museum and Visitors' Center before continuing to our safari camp located inside Serengeti National Park.
