Early arrival at Jomo Kenyatta airport, clients will be met and leave the hustle and bustle of Nairobi behind, you head south across the beautiful and seemingly never ending Athi plains and then turn east to Amboseli National Park at the foot of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, home to a wealth of wildlife but particularly known for its elephants. By lunchtime you'll reach the lodge, your base for exploring this corner of Kenya and admiring the dramatic views of Africa's highest mountain.

Overnight at Amboseli Sopa Lodge on a full board basis

Wake up early this morning for a game drive as the sun starts to rise. This is the best time of day to spot the animals as they wake and go in search of their breakfast. If the weather is clear you’ll also see the stunning snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro appear on the horizon, a glorious sight. Return to the lodge for breakfast and time to relax and enjoy the facilities. Amboseli is not a large park, however the unusual dusty terrain of the dry lakebed and swamps makes an interesting place to explore. There are huge herds of elephants here and if you are lucky you’ll catch them crossing sedately across the grassy plains with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. A classic photo opportunity. Morning and afternoon game drives give you maximum opportunity to spot the wide variety of animals at different times of day. Return to the lodge for meals.

After an early breakfast, perhaps catch a clear view of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro as you leave Amboseli and travel north cross the Athi plains and then west through the Kenya's fertile highlands, where tea and coffee farms abound, and suddenly to your left, the trees part to reveal a spectacular view of the Great Rift Valley. Here the with dormant Longonot volcano lies at centre stage. These panoramic views brings you to Lake Naivasha with its Crescent Island. Arrive at the lodge in time for lunch and the rest of the afternoon is at leisure.

After an early breakfast, you'll travel across the bottom of the rift escarpment and head southeast, passing the dormant Longonot volcano on your right. Then you'll turn off the main road across the Rift Valley and head towards Narok, district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. After Narok you'll travel across the "breadbasket" of Kenya, covered with acres of wheat and barley, before you reach the Mara and your lodge, home to some of the greatest concentrations of game in Africa.
Overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge on full board basis.

Today will be spent exploring the vast plains of the Masai Mara, starting early with a game drive before breakfast, and returning to the lodge for meals. This reserve is an extension of the Serengeti ecosystem to the south. Game abounds here, particularly when the migration is on, and millions of wildebeests and zebras make their way back and forth across the Mara River on their annual trek. The Mara is also noted for its abundance of lions - particularly the superb black manned males. You'll see lots of elephants here often in large herds, as well as, if you're lucky, leopard, cheetah and rhino. All of the Big Five are residents. You're sure to see the African buffalo. The huge expanse of grassland covers 320 sq km and is dotted with distinctive flat-topped acacia trees are watered by two rivers, Mara River and Talek River. It is also home to the nomadic Maasai people, who can be see grazing their cattle, usually brightly dressed in red chequered capes. Get the cameras ready, stock up on film and enjoy yourselves!

From here cross the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley whilst keeping an eye out for herds of giraffe and gazelle before heading up the rift escarpment on a road built by Italian prisoners during World War II.
