Kenya Sampler

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,947

Journey to Kenya's most picturesque regions. Get acquainted with bustling Nairobi before heading to the open plains of Masai Mara, the shimmery pink waters of Lake Nakuru, and the swamps of Amboseli, set in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Stay in eco-friendly game lodges and head on daily game drives to see the Big Five and other animals.


This 7-day Kenya vacation takes you to the capital of Nairobi and several game reserves within the country, including the famous Masai Mara.

Your trip to Kenya begins in the capital, Nairobi, a bustling city that is at the forefront of African technology and innovation. Head to the Nairobi National Museum to learn about the country's history before sampling the incredible food and nightlife in the evening.

From Nairobi, head across the Great Rift Valley to enter world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve. Staying at the environmentally-friendly Masai Mara Sopa Lodge, you'll spend a few days heading on game drives to see the incredible wildlife within the park. Rise early in the morning to catch the Big Five in the midst of their feeding rituals or spot cheetah racing across the African savannah. After lunch, head back into the wild to follow hyenas on their hunt or elephants crossing the plains. During your stay, you'll also visit a local Masai village to meet with villagers and learn about their traditional ways of life.

From the Masai Mara, head across the bread basket of Kenya to Lake Nakuru, a soda lake in the heart of the Great Rift Valley. Check into Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge before heading on a game drive at sunset to see the flamingos cover the waters of the lake. During your game drive, you may also spot rare black rhinos or Rothschild giraffes running across the horizon.

Continue to Amboseli National Park, taking a boat ride on Lake Naivasha along the way, for the final portion of your trip to Kenya. Settle into Amboseli Sopa Lodge and bask into the breathtaking landscape set against the backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain on the continent. Head on a full-day game drive in the shadow of the mountain to spot elephant families bathing in waterholes, lions dazing in the sun, or cheetahs sprinting after prey. The next day, savour the final views of Kilimanjaro as you head back to Nairobi for your onward journey.
