Two days in the Maasai Mara provide an unforgettable start to this itinerary. Masses of four hooves cover the great plains, great herds of zebra and wildebeest often leaving swirls of dust in their wake. You’re admiring them, and so are the big cats. There is probably nowhere better on the planet to see lion prides, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, and other cats. You’ve also got a good chance of spotting them out on a hunt. Lake Nakuru also teems with these predators. But two very different creatures will grab your attention. Over a million flamingo turn the lakeshore a dramatic pink. On the other end of numbers scale, fewer than 3,000 critically endangered black rhinos exist in the wild. They proudly roam through this national reserve, joined by their southern cousin, the white rhino. Enjoy a day in this national reserve, widely regarded as one of Africa’s most beautiful.

The snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro dominates the landscape in Amboseli. Wandering beneath Africa’s highest mountain are massive herds of elephants. This fairytale scene is what Amboseli is famous for, but its swamps also provide an assorted cast of Africa’s unique mammals. You’ll be getting breathtakingly close to elephants in Amboseli on day four. During the next day in Tsavo West, it will be hippos that dominate the agenda. The Big Five abundantly fill this park, although it is the hippo and crocodile infested Mzima Springs that often provide the park’s most enduring moments.

A dramatic day in Tsavo East National Park completes the itinerary. This vast savannah is home to pretty much everything, and who knows what’s going to appear when you turn a corner or look behind a tree. Defining a typical game drive isn’t possible in Kenya. The diverse habitats and landscapes are home to vastly different wildlife. Furthermore, these untouched wildernesses provide a very personalized experience. But by combining five different parks, this tailor made safari adventure will showcase everything that makes Kenya such a great destination.
