Good morning Ken

Just wanted to write a brief note to say thank you very much for organising our trip, and also to sing Sam's praises.  He was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable - he made us feel very well looked after and was a pleasure to be with for our time on the Mara.  We didn't manage to hit the Big 5 but nevertheless had a fantastic time, and I'm sure will return when we have the opportunity.

BEACH HOLIDAYS - HOTELS - RAFTING - BALLOON FLIGHTS - TRIP PLANNING SERVICE

7 Days/6 Nights "Bush & Beach" (Permanent Tents)

A 7 day safari allowing you to view the wildlife in 3 of Kenya's top reserves… Maasai Mara, Amboseli, Tsavo… before relaxing on the beaches of North or South Coast Mombasa.

Day 1 Nairobi - Maasai Mara
Morning departure from Nairobi, descending the escarpment and driving along the floor of the Great Rift Valley to the Maasai town of Narok. After a stop for refreshments, proceed to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve with game viewing enroute to the overnight camp.

Day 2 Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Full day game viewing with picnic lunch. One of Kenya's premier reserves, the Maasai Mara is an extension of the Serengeti and world famous for the spectacular migration of thousands of wildebeest and zebra during the months of July and October. The Mara is also rich in resident game with over 95 species recorded. These include the "Big Five" - elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino - as well as giraffe, hippo, cheetah, hyena, hippo and numerous antelope. The Reserve is also rich in birdlife with over 480 species recorded in recent times. Return to camp for dinner.

Day 3 Maasai Mara - Nairobi - Amboseli
After breakfast, depart for Nairobi via Narok. After lunch at a local restaurant we continue to Amboseli National Park, located on the Kenya/Tanzania border. Gamedrive to one of the public campsites for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 4 Amboseli National Park
The day is spent game viewing in the Park. Dinner and overnight at the campsite. Amboseli National Park covers an area of around 400 square kilometres and is bounded to the south by Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. Its snow-capped summit dominates the landscape and provides a superb backdrop for wildlife photographers. Amboseli's swamps, plains, woodlands and bush country support a diversity of wildlife unrivalled in East Africa for a park of its size. Over 80 different mammals may be found in the park, including the Gerenuk and the Fringe-eared Oryx. The swamps and lakes are rich in resident and migrant birds with over 400 species recorded.

Day 5 Amboseli - Tsavo West
We leave after breakfast and travel via Chyulu Hills to Tsavo West National Park, arriving in time for lunch. The afternoon is spent game viewing, and if time permits, a visit to Mzima Springs. Dinner and overnight at a local campsite. The combined area of Tsavo East and West makes this one of the largest game sanctuaries in the world, covering approximately 20,000 square kilometres. Tsavo became Kenya's second national park in 1948 and offers a wide variety of game viewing opportunities. Apart from a large elephant population, other resident game includes lion, cheetah, hyena, leopard, hippo, gazelle, giraffe, crocodiles, and an incredible display of birdlife.

Day 6 Tsavo West - Tsavo East
In the morning we cross into Tsavo East for lunch and an afternoon of game viewing. Tsavo East is larger and more arid than Tsavo West and is less visited. Only a small area of this vast reserve is open to the public while the remainder provides a remote animal wilderness. Two main attractions in this park include the Yatta Plateau, one of the world's longest lava flows, and Lugard Falls, a long stretch of rippling white water cataracts. Dinner and overnight at a campsite.

Day 7 Tsavo East - Mombasa
After breakfast we game drive out of the park and proceed to the coastal city of Mombasa where the tour ends.
We can arrange a variety of accommodation to be included in your trip, ranging from reasonably priced self catering bungalows by the beach, to all inclusive resort hotels and drop you there at the end of the safari.
