Kenya Discovery & Masai Mara

Ilkeliani Safari CampClick to enlarge

Combining three of Kenya’s best game-viewing areas, this great value safari includes comfortable accommodation and transport using 4x4 vehicles. It first stays at the esteemed Serena safari lodges in Tsavo and Amboseli which are ideal for those going in search of Africa’s Big Five. Then the tour continues by air to the Masai Mara, with a choice of high quality, well-located camps and lodges. Operates weekly - departing Nairobi on Mondays.

 

 

The journey first visits the vast Tsavo region. Together Tsavo West National Park and Tsavo East National Park make up one of the largest animal sanctuaries in the world. The terrain encompasses huge plains and an interesting geological landscape such as cones, outcrops and lava flows resulting from historic volcanic activity. The area has a wide variety of wildlife including lion, cheetah, leopard, buffalo, hippo, elephant, oryx, eland, zebra, giraffe, spotted hyena, kongoni, waterbuck, impala, duiker and klipspringer.

The tour stays first at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge. The lodge overlooks a waterhole and has uninterrupted views of the plains and the stunning Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance. The waterhole is considered to offer the finest terraced savannah game viewing in Kenya, and at night you can listen to the sounds of herds of buffalo and elephant grazing outside your bedroom.

Activities at Kilaguni include game drives, bush walks accompanied by the resident naturalist, sundowners, bush dinners, tribal dances and excursions to Mzima Springs or a rhino sanctuary.

After two nights in Tsavo the tour continues to Amboseli National Park, home to large herds of elephants whose population is one of the few in Africa that has been spared from poachers. Predators in the park include hyenas, jackals; lions, leopards and cheetahs. Birdlife in abundance flourishes particularly in the marshes and swamps. Over 420 species have been counted within the park as a whole including 6 species of vulture, 12 species of heron and 10 varieties of eagle.

With an awe-inspiring view of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli Serena Lodge is set inside a grove of Acacias within the boundaries of the National Park. The lodge offers a restaurant, bars and a swimming pool. Game drives and excursions are taken from the lodge to observe the wealth of wildlife in the surrounding area.

We then continue to the Masai Mara area and to your choice of camp or lodge. The Masai Mara is a magnificent landscape of open plains bisected by the Mara River and its tributaries, and punctuated by marshes and forests. This region supports the highest density of game to be seen anywhere considering its size. During the seasonal migrations up to a million wildebeest and an equally impressive number of zebra move into the area from the neighbouring Serengeti National Park, in Tanzania. This area is home to all the “Big Five” and it is also possible to observe; baboon, eland, ostrich, bat-eared fox, jackal, and the rivers abound with hippos and crocodiles.

There is a choice of camps and lodges – 2 night add-on prices (including Full Board accommodation / flights / transfers / activities) from just $850 per person:
