Discover The Unexpected

5 Days Mid Luxury Kenya Safari

Overview

Like most of our other safari itineraries, this 5-day journey begins with a pickup in Nairobi, from where you will proceed with our team into the Kenyan wilderness. Your first stop is the famous Amboseli National Park, home to robust populations of African elephants and set against a backdrop of the towering Mount Kilimanjaro. If you’ve seen popular postcards from Kenya with elephants roaming the plain with a snow-capped mountain in the background, then you’ve seen a glimpse of the natural wonders of Amboseli.

You’ll make a quick stop at Lake Naivasha, taking in the scenic landscapes on the way, and then end the tour at the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve. This ultimate safari destination affords excellent game viewing, panoramic backdrops of lush savannahs, and incredible sundowners framed by the enchanting African sunset. You also get to enjoy picnics in the wild and dining under the stars. We also make sure to attend to your special requests, so if you have any, don’t hesitate to let us about it. This min-luxury safari promises to be the experience of a lifetime!
