Taking in a range of safari experiences, including conservation efforts and understanding about local tribal culture, this tour offers a great range of activities to keep a whole family happy. Travelling through the Great African Rift Valley will take you through some of the most sought-after African safari locations including the Masai Mara and a chimpanzee sanctuary.
Ol Pejeta is an internationally recognised conservation area, hosting some of the last northern white rhinos in existence, as well as Kenya’s only chimpanzee sanctuary that was founded by Jane Goodall. Here is a great spot to begin to learn about the challenges faced by the wildlife in Africa before heading further into the wilds of Kenya.
Visits to Aberdare and Lake Nakuru give different aspects on the landscape of this legendary country, with a vast lake playing host to over 400 avian species and the legendary Ark structure built around a watering hole in Aberdare. The Masai Mara is a legendary place and your time here will be spent around both the animals and people who gave it its reputation.
Your tour is a private booking, so you and your party or family will have a dedicated guide and vehicle with no distractions. Due to the private nature of your safari you can request the trip be taken in reverse, or indeed add extra days which would attract extra costs.

Day 1 Nairobi to Olpejeta Conservancy (207 km – 3 to 4 hours)
Days on safari start early, so begin the routine on your first day with a bright and early start to depart from Nairobi. We will collect you from your hotel, residence, or the international airport and make the northbound journey to Ol Pejeta.
Your travels will take you past Mount Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa, and up on to the Laikipia Plateau. Ol Pejeta was once a cattle ranch and has since been converted into an important, privately-run wildlife conservation area. Here you can find the big five of Africa safari:
Along with many other animals and the only chimpanzees in Kenya.
When you arrive at your accommodation it’ll be high time for lunch before you head out into the park on your afternoon game drive.

Evening will see you return to your chosen camp or lodge for dinner on your first night in the bush.
Included in this first day of your Kenyan safari is:
Day 2 Olpejeta Conservancy to Aberdares National Park (75 km – 1 to 2 hours)
Breakfast will start your day in the conservancy and you can spend the morning visiting the chimpanzee sanctuary. Here, you can learn about how the institution founded by the fame naturalist Jane Goodall works to rehabilitate our closest cousins.
The afternoon will take you on the short drive to Aberdare National Park where a short game drive will see you on your way to your camp or lodge. You are invited to visit the Ark at Treetops Lodge, no matter where you have booked to stay. Here, the platforms are built around a popular watering hole, so you can see a vast array of African wildlife drinking, playing, and even hunting their prey.
The Ark offers a wonderful evening experience, so you can head over after dinner to see the location floodlit. This gives you rare opportunity to be able to see nocturnal animals in their natural habitat, an experience not afforded to many safari goers. Included in the second day of your Kenyan safari is:
Day 3 Aberdares National Park to Lake Nakuru National Park (203 km – 4 hours)
The Great African Rift Valley is believed to be home to humanity itself, and it’s still a dynamic and evolving landscape to this day. Following breakfast at your camp or lodge, you will head deep into the valley that is a fissure in the African landscape and filled with volcanic lakes and rock formations.
The destination in Lake Nakuru National Park, with more than one third of its area taken up by the lake that gives the area its name. Arriving in time for lunch at your accommodation, you will then be taken on an afternoon game drive where you can see a vast array of birds and animals. There are more than 400 species of birds recorded as living, nesting, or migrating through here – including the greater and lesser flamingos who light up the waters’ surface with their pink tones that dance across the lake.
After a day spent spotting birds on the water and the animals around it, you will be ready for the dinner that will be prepared by your camp or lodge. Take the evening to rest and relax, as there is another adventure packed day ahead tomorrow. This day of your African safari experience includes:
Day 4 Lake Nakuru National Park – Masai Mara National Reserve (300 km – 5 to 6 hours)
The idea of the Masai Mara is evocative of orange land, big cats, acacia trees jutting out of scrub, and one of the largest migrations in the world. After bidding farewell to Lake Nakuru and her animals once you’ve had breakfast, the Masai Mara awaits.
You’ll head down the Great African Rift Valley and come to the park where you will immediately be on a game drive towards the camp or lodge that you have chosen. This will be your first of many encounters with the stunning animals on display here, yet only a brief introduction because lunch awaits upon your arrival.
The afternoon will see you continue on your progress into the Masai Mara, with chances to see the iconic creatures that have only lived in your dreams before now:
And plenty more that your African safari guide will help your spot. If you’re lucky enough to visit between July and October you may be able to witness first-hand the migration of the herds of herbivores that inhabit this park.
After the day’s excitement you will be returned to your accommodation for dinner to be served and give you chance to rest up and ready for the big day of plans tomorrow. Day four of your Kenyan safari includes:
Day 5 Full Day in Masai Mara National Reserve
An early morning game drive affords you chance to listen to the morning chorus as dawn breaks over the savanna. Birds sing and mammals sound off as the day begins and the animals of the night return to the resting places again. This rhythm that starts the day is a joy to behold and is a perfect chance to get photographs as sunlight begins to spill over the park.
Returning to your accommodation for breakfast, you’ll soon be back out ranging across the Masai Mara and spotting plenty of animals; this park is one of the most densely populated ecosystems in all of Africa. Lunch will come as a picnic so that you can stay out in the park and surrounded by the nature that you’ve travelled so far to see.
Afternoon presents another rare opportunity; you are invited into a Masai village. Here, you will be greeted with a traditional song and dance to welcome you in, and be taken around the village to be taught some information about the history and culture of these nomadic farmers who thrive in this stunning landscape. As an optional activity there is an additional fee to visit the village of $20 per person. After an exciting and exhausting day, you will return to your camp or lodge for dinner and some well-earned relaxation.
