Combining some of Kenya's biggest safari experiences onto a slightly over a week-long itinerary, this overland tour is well-balanced and highly diverse. See Amboseli National Park, famous for its views of Mount Kilimanjaro and good numbers of elephants, Lake Nakuru with its diverse wildlife and distinctive lakes, and the world-renowned Masai Mara. After two nights in Nairobi, you proceed to Amboseli National Park, close to the Tanzanian border flanked by Mount Kilimanjaro. Amboseli is a compact game park, abundant in wildlife, which makes for some excellent game viewing. Amboseli National Park hosts some of Kenya's largest elephant herds and is famous for its big elephant bulls with their impressive tusks.
The Park also contains huge populations of buffalos, zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, hippos and various antelope species, such as impala. Amboseli National Park is also home to lions, leopards, cheetahs, rhinos and many other species of plains game. The Park also boasts an abundance of birds, including bee-eaters, kingfishers, pelicans, African fish eagles and falcons.

From Amboseli, we head to the important wildlife sanctuary of Lake Nakuru National Park, via Nairobi and the scenic Great Rift Valley. Lake Nakuru National Park is home to lions, leopards and buffalo as well as an enormous number of birds. The lake hosts over 400 different bird species, including many water birds. Lake Nakuru National Park is known as an important wildlife sanctuary for some of Africa's endangered species, especially black and white rhinos, & Rothschild's giraffes. The game reserve is also home to lions, waterbuck, buffalo and baboons, which we keep an eye out for on our game drive.

Your safari closes with Kenya's flagship national reserve: the Masai Mara, a scene of the dramatic Wildebeest Migration and a rewarding and exciting safari destination at any time of year. Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see plenty of wildlife, such as Masai giraffes, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topi, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common.

The ultimate action here is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in August and September when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October. Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife.
