Itinerary: November 2018
11 DAYS EXPLORING AMBOSELI, OL PEJETA, SAMBURU AND MASAI MARA
This classic Kenyan Safari is geared toward sophisticated travelers who want to experience the magic of Kenya. Track Leopards in Samburu, see Black Rhinos in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, and take in the splendor of Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli. Fnish your journey in Masai Mara, the “Jewel of Kenya” where you’ll hope to see big cats galore. All lodges and luxury camps are located in the hearts of the reserves for the very best wildlife viewing experiences.
DAY 1: ARRIVE NAIROBI - Eka Hotel or Similar
Arrive in Nairobi at night where you will be greeted at the airport and escorted to your hotel. We will be there every step of the way to help guide you, and we'll set everything up according to your preferences so you can relax and enjoy your adventure!
DAY 2: TRAVEL TO AMBOSELI - Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge
After breakfast, begin your safari by traveling to Amboseli National Park. Located southeast of Nairobi, Amboseli is an area of low, "scrubby" vegetation and open grassy plains, all of which makes for easy game viewing. It's best known for its large herds of elephants and stunning views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain. During game drives, you are guaranteed to see elephants, but you may also see lions, hippos, zebras, wildebeest, gazelle, buffalo, leopart, spotted hyena, giraffe, cheetah, and over 300 kinds of birds. Arrive at your lodge in time for lunch followed by an afternoon game drive.

DAY 5: TRAVEL TO OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY - Sweetwaters Serena Tented Camp
After breakfast at the hotel, travel to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, located on the plains of Mount Kenya, where seeing rhinos is guaranteed. Host to the "Big Five" (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo, and leopard) and the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, Ol Pejeta is also home to the last two Northern White Rhino on Earth, protected under 24-hour armed guard. It also hosts Kenya's only chimpanzee sanctuary (formed by Jane Goodall), and shelters large numbers of rare and endangered species.
DAY 6: TRAVEL TO SAMBURU - Samburu Intrepids
After breakfast, depart to Samburu National Reserve, a park famous for its rugged beauty, rich wildlife and semi-nomadic Samburu tribesmen. In addition to a plethora of big cats, Samburu offers a "Special 5" unique to the area: the long-necked gerenuk, Grevvy's zebra, the reticulated giraffe, Beisa Oryx and the Somali ostrich.
DAY 7: SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE - Samburu Intrepids
Full day of game viewing in Samburu.
