Set off this morning, driving south to Tsavo West National Park. After lunch you’ll head out on your first game drive and also visit Mzima Springs – if you’re lucky you might spot hippo and crocodiles. There’s also the chance to descend to an underground viewing chamber to see colourful fish close-up. Tonight you’ll stay at the Kilaguni Serena Lodge; one of Kenya’s first ever lodges, with a tranquil atmosphere and uninterrupted views of Kilimanjaro. Tonight there’ll be a welcome dinner for you and your group. Approx. journey time: 4½ hours. Overnight on full board basis.

Day 3: Tsavo West to Amboseli Day 3: Tsavo West to Amboseli

After breakfast, drive to one of the most popular parks in Kenya – Amboseli National Park, known for its huge elephant herds and dramatic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. Following an afternoon game drive you’ll head to the Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge. This is a traditional lodge, where the dining area is reached by a timbered bridge over a meltwater stream and rooms are housed in single-storey buildings. Approx. journey time: 3 hours.

Day 4: Amboseli National Park Day 4: Amboseli National Park

Head out on early morning and afternoon game drives in Amboseli. The low vegetation makes for excellent wildlife spotting. Look out for lion, buffalo and zebra, as well as hippo in the swamplands. The park’s dry and dusty form is due to the volcanic ash that came from Mount Kilimanjaro on its last eruption, yet the lush green areas are a result of a continuous water supply from the mountain’s melting snow.

Day 5: Amboseli to Aberdares Day 5: Amboseli to Aberdares

After breakfast travel back to Nairobi and then out towards the Aberdare Mountain Range, with lunch en route. Once you reach Aberdare you’ll check in at the Aberdare Country Club in order to transfer to its unique sister property, The Ark, which will be your viewing perch for the night. In the heart of the Aberdare National Park, The Ark’s design is based on Noah’s Ark. It overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick, attracting a whole host of game both day and night. Four viewing decks with balconies allow up-close wildlife viewing without even leaving your accommodation. There’s also a ground-level photo hide and an on-call viewing service to ensure that you don’t miss a thing. Rooms are known as ‘cabins’ and are set over three ‘decks’. Approx. journey time: 5 hours.

Day 6: Aberdares to Ol Pejeta Day 6: Aberdares to Ol Pejeta

Drive North to Sweetwaters Serena Camp for lunch and an afternoon game drive, then visit the remarkable Chimpanzee and Rhino Sanctuaries. Incorporated within the Ol Pejeta Conservancy – one of only four private game conservancies to have been founded in Kenya – the sanctuary is the only place in Kenya where the endangered chimpanzee can be seen. It also houses the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, where you can see the world’s three remaining northern white rhino. Head back to Sweetwaters for dinner and to experience the charm of under-canvas living. Approx. journey time: 3 hours.

Day 7: Ol Pejeta to Masai Mara Game Reserve Day 7: Ol Pejeta to Masai Mara Game Reserve

Fly to Maasai Mara and explore the rolling plains on an afternoon game drive. Have your camera at the ready for spectacular wildlife viewing.

Stay at the Sarova Mara Game Camp – a classic bush camp with traditionally-furnished canvas tents housed under tiled roofs.
