Tuskers of Kenya: Tsavo West & Masai Mara

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 7,027

DELUXE | TAILOR-MADE: Get a taste of nature’s bounty on this journey across Southern Kenya. Staying in luxury safari camps, you’ll head on game drives in two of Kenya’s famous game reserves, Tsavo West and the Masai Mara. Spot big tuskers crossing in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, meet with local Masai villagers, and track the Big Five.


This 7-day Kenyan vacation takes you to two of the nation’s most popular safari parks, Tsavo West National Park and Masai Mara National Reserve. It features luxury accommodations and shared tours.

Your trip to Kenya begins in Tsavo West National Park, pitched on the southern border of the nation in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Spend three nights at the 5-star Finch Hattons Luxury Camp, where you’ll enjoy eco-friendly luxury and the comforts of your own private suite and pool. Enjoy fine dining as you watch the resident hippos wade in the camp waterhole and take advantage of the wide range of activities available on site. Each day, head on game drives to discover the many animals that live in the landscape of swamps, volcanic peaks, and rolling plains. In particular, you’ll have a good chance of seeing some of the 12,000 red elephants or “big tuskers” that call the park home.

After getting your fill of wildlife in Tsavo West, head northwest and connect to the Masai Mara and Olderkesi Conservancy, where you’ll stay at Cottar’s 1920 Camp, your 5-star home for the next four nights. The camp recreates the elegance and humble luxury of the classical safari experience. Stay in one of 10 luxury tents and spend two full days on game drives in the world-famous confines of the Masai Mara. One day, you can visit a local Masai village to learn about the traditions of the area’s inhabitants or meet children at a local school. Search for the Big Five on game drives and perhaps even catch a glimpse of the Great Migration if you happen to visit during August or September. If you really want to splurge, book a hot air balloon ride over the park in the early morning, enjoying the best views of the breaking sun.

At the end of your stay, connect back to Nairobi for onward travels.
