7 Days Tsavo West National Park - Amboseli National Park - Tree hotel - Lake Nakuru National Park - Masai Mara National Reserve
Day 1: Tsavo West National Park
After breakfast, depart for Tsavo West National Park which lies roughly halfway between Nairobi and the Coast. The chief marvel here is the Mzima Springs, replenished with two hundred and twenty million litres of crystal clear water everyday, from the underground streams stemming from the lava massif known as Chyulu Hills. Mzima Springs is a favorite haunt of hippos and crocodiles. There are well-marked nature trails, an observation platform and an underwater glass tank, which provides a special vantage point to view this remarkable oasis. Arrive in time for lunch at a lodge located within the boundaries of the Park. An early evening game drive to see large herds of Elephants, Buffalo, Common Waterbuck, Eland, Gerenuk, Masai Giraffe, Black Rhino and Antelopes. Bird life is also in abundance at this park of great diversity in habitat and terrain. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 2: Amboseli National Park
After breakfast, head for the bushy country of Amboseli National Park. Amboseli National Park is a landscape dominated everywhere by the glistening, majestic snowcap of the mighty Kilimanjaro – a fitting backdrop to the wild region. It is also the region where pastoral Masai and their cattle have lived in harmony with wild creatures for many a century. After lunch, experience an afternoon game drive at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain. Dinner and overnight is at one of the Amboseli Lodges, located in the very heart of the Amboseli National Park.
Day 3: Mt Kenya National Park
An early morning game drive followed by a hearty breakfast at the lodge and then depart for Nairobi for sumptuous lunch. Thereafter proceed north towards Mt Kenya for the unique experience of all night and unlimited game viewing. Lunch will be at the base hotel
while dinner and overnight will be at a tree lodge surrounded by forest and overlooking an illuminated waterhole and salt lick.
Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park
After breakfast, drive to Nakuru. Arrive in time for lunch. Enjoy an afternoon game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park. The park provides a sanctuary for the rhino. Lake Nakuru has always been considered a flamingo lake par excellence. The contrast and apparent dislocation between the shallow soda lake with its primeval birds and the animated woods all around it give Lake Nakuru National Park a very distinctive appeal. Dinner and overnight at a lodge overlooking the lake.
Day 5: Masai Mara National Reserve

In this country of breathtaking vistas, view its vast assemblages of plains game together with their associated predators: Buffalo, Black Rhino, Hippopotamus, Leopard, Cheetah, Common Zebra, Coke’s Hartebeest, White bearded Gnu, Oribi, Warthog, and Thompson’s and Grant’s Gazelles.
