7-DAY FLY/DRIVE SAFARI – FROM DIANI BEACH TO 6 NATIONAL PARKS

Daily Private Safari Tour

Picks up from / drops back at Diani beach area resorts

Discover Kenya’s Best Parks

Starting from/returning to Diani Beach area resorts. We’ll pick you up from your hotel. Begin your safari in the comfort of a private pop-top safari minivan.

This is our big one! Our most complete safari from Diani Beach. Over the course of 7 days you’ll enjoy 6 of Kenya’s most exciting parks on this leisurely paced journey. Get ready for awesome wildlife viewing with unlimited game drives.

This safari offers all the highlights you’d want in a Kenya safari adventure – the oldest, biggest & most famous parks; great stretches of savannah and mountain lakes; Mt. Kilimanjaro; towering escarpments and sparkling oasis. And this includes riding, boating, walking and biking safaris!

And to maximize your holiday, an easy flight back to the coast saves travel time and provides stunning views of Africa. Let’s get started!

Day 1 – Tsavo East

Your Natural World Kenya Safari’s driver/guide will pick you up from your Diani Beach resort and proceed down the Mombasa-Nairobi highway on your way to Kenya’s largest game reserve, Tsavo East National Park. In no time, you’ll pass through the Tsavo gate and take in the park’s unmistakable rugged landscape.

Tsavo East is home to over 700 of the famous Tsavo lions, renowned in the past as fierce predators. Here, too, on your first game drives you’ll be looking for buffalo, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, zebra, gazelle and dozens more species.

Tonight, you’ll stay in the park at the lodge or tented camp of your choice.

Day 2 – Tsavo East/Amboseli

We’ll be up with the sun to catch the first stirrings of nature with an early morning game drive. Then we’ll exit Tsavo on the way to Amboseli National Park, which lies in the shadow of towering Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa.

Though not nearly as expansive as Tsavo, Amboseli’s smaller size provides many opportunities to view its abundant game – especially its elephants. In fact, the park is known as perhaps the best spot in Africa for spotting free-ranging elephants. There’s also plenty of other wildlife here as well as hundreds of bird species. And of course, great views of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Day 3 – Amboseli/Lake Naivasha

Another early morning will bring us an African sunrise and possibly views of Kilimanjaro’s snow-capped peak if the clouds break. After breakfast we’ll depart Amboseli with a final game drive.

We’ll head through the great Rift Valley and stop in the capital of Nairobi for lunch before proceeding on to Lake Naivasha National Park. The lake here is the Rift Valley’s highest and ringed with cacti and olive trees. We’ll take a water safari and look for giraffe and zebra along the shore as we glide past neighboring hippos in the lake.

Day 4 – Lake Naivasha/Hell’s Gate/Lake Nakuru

From Lake Naivasha it’s a quick hop to Hell’s Gate National Park, where we’ll take a bicycle safari riding past zebras, giraffes, impalas and buffalo, amongst the imposing escarpments. And then we’ll enjoy a bonus walking safari at nearby Crescent Island.

From there it’s only a one-hour drive to Lake Nakuru National Park to see the beauty of an acacia forest, plus Rothschild’s giraffes, rhinos, lions, warthogs and even leopards. The park is also known for its birdlife including pelicans and flamingos.

Day 5 – Lake Nakuru/Masai Mara

We’ll complete our Lake Nakuru experience with an early morning game drive as we exit the park. For we are now making tracks to perhaps the most famous park in Kenya – Masai Mara National Reserve.

The Mara is a picture postcard of Africa with its rolling savannahs, acacia trees and endless herds of migrating zebras and wildebeests. Here there are boundless populations of lions, leopards, cheetahs, and gazelle, plus hyena, jackal, buffalo and more.

We’ll arrive here in time for some afternoon game drives just to whet your appetite, for this is the beginning of our 3-day span in the park.

Day 6 – Masai Mara

This will be an exciting day of unlimited game drives through the grasslands of the Mara. Africa’s “Big Five” are a feature of the park and we’ll be on the lookout for them.

We will lunch by the Mara River and during the migration season (July – October) witness the crossing of thousands of Zebra and Wildebeest… and the crocodiles waiting for them in the murky waters.

Day 7 – Masai Mara/Nairobi

We’ll be up with the wildlife for a pre-breakfast game drive to get in maximum viewing time. Then, after breakfast, we’ll exit the park for one final game drive and then we’re off to Nairobi.

In Nairobi, have your choice of an evening flight to Mombasa or take a modern train back to the coast. You can wash off the “safari dust” back at your resort as you recall your adventures in Kenya’s greatest parks.

All-Inclusive. Your 7-Day Tsavo East/Amboseli/Lake Naivsaha/Lake Nakuru/Masai Mara safari includes all ground transportation, accommodation in a choice of economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges/tented camps, park entrance fees, game drives, all meals and pickup/drop off at your Diani and south coast locations.
