Safari Itinerary: Kenya Under Canvas Tented Safari (11 Days)

Day 1 - Nairobi - The Norfolk Hotel
Arrive into Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport today. After clearing customs you will be met and transferred to Nairobi’s famous Norfolk Hotel. Dating from Kenya’s colonial days, the Norfolk is a landmark in Nairobi, rich in history, enhanced by up-to-the-minute facilities and amenities including a heated swimming pool, health club (fully equipped gym, aerobics room, sauna & steam rooms), salon, news-stand, and gift shops. Spend the rest of your day relaxing or venture into downtown Nairobi for some shopping. Dinner is on your own tonight. Overnight - The Norfolk Hotel (B & B basis)

Days 2 + 3 - Amboseli National Reserve, Mt. Kilimanjaro
Begin your exciting journey with an aerial view of the legendary "snows of Kilimanjaro." At 19,340 feet, the snow-capped peak of Africa's highest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro, will welcome you as you fly to Amboseli National Park located at its foot. Home to over 1,000 elephants, herds of wildebeest, lion and over 300 species of birds, it is here that Ernest Hemingway spun his stories of big-game hunting in the wilds of Africa. Part of Maasailand, it's not unusual to see the proud Maasai warrior or small children tending their cattle. This is also the park where Cynthia Moss, the noted American naturalist and author, has conducted the longest-running study on elephants. Visit the Amboseli Elephant Research Project where Cynthia, or a member of her professional staff, will discuss their work. Your camp has unbeatable views of the Amboseli plains across to Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru in Tanzania. Tortilis Camp. (B,L,D Daily)

Days 4 + 5 - Samburu Game Reserve
Wing your way via Nairobi past the equator and onto Samburu Game Reserve in the ruggedly beautiful, semi-arid desert of northern Kenya. The Reserve is within the lands of the colorful Samburu people, close relatives of the Maasai, and home to a number of wildlife species rarely found elsewhere in Kenya: Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe, and Beisa oryx. Your luxury tented camp is set on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River and offers unique game viewing in its immediate surroundings. Your accommodations are in a luxury tented camp built on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River. If you’re an elephant lover, you’ll truly understand the name of camp when you see the abundance of these magnificent animals in this location. Enjoy the comfort of your en suite tent, the friendly service, and delicious food, prepared fresh for you daily. Overnights at the Elephant Bedroom Camp. (B, L, D daily)


Days 6 + 7 - Lake Nakuru National Park
Fly back to Nairobi this morning and after lunch drive into the Great Rift Valley to Lake Nakuru National Park. You now explore the Great Rift Valley, a huge geological fault line that stretches round one-sixth of the Earth’s circumference and is visible from outer space. Lake Nakuru National Park is a shallow, alkaline lake that is world renowned for its huge concentration of flamingos; at times, hundreds of thousands of these birds give the lake a pink, shimmering glow. Your wildlife drives will allow ample wildlife viewing and you’ll also get a chance for a bird and wildlife walk at nearby Soysambu and Lake Elmenteita. Mbweha Camp is located in the privately owned Congreve Conservancy, hidden in a grove of euphorbia with lovely views of the Eburu and Mau ranges, only 15 minutes away from the gate to Lake Nakuru National Park. The thatched cottages with walls of natural lava rock have a roomy, circular sleeping area with en suite shower and a private verandah. All cottages are completely separate and are simply designed featuring natural materials and tastefully furnished. The camp’s sunken bar and spacious lounge have an open fireplace, a pool table, dartboard, and looks out at eye level onto a small water hole. The bush restaurant serves a choice of freshly prepared meals in a separate thatched dining room. Activities include nature walks, bike rides, hiking, day and night wildlife drives, bush dinners, and sundowners. Overnight at the Mbweha Camp. (B, L, D daily)

Days 8, 9 + 10 - Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Feel like Karen Blixen as you drive your way to the Maasai Mara, Kenya's most famous game reserve. Much the setting for the film Out of Africa, its seemingly endless savannah inhabited by exotic animals including lion, cheetah, elephant, leopard, rhino and hippo. There are also over 500 resident species of birds in the park. The reserve covers an area of 700 square miles and hosts the annual migration of up to two million wildebeest, thousands of zebra and an escort of carnivores from the Serengeti plains, following the rains and succulent new grass. Exciting optional activities (at additional cost) are available such as witnessing dawn over the Serengeti from a hot air balloon, flying to Lake Victoria to fish for giant Nile perch or visiting a Maasai Village to experience this nomadic tribe’s way of life.

Your luxury tented camp is located on the banks of the Talek River in one of the most active wildlife areas of the reserve. In the true sense of ecotourism, a portion of your fee is given to the local community to support various projects. The Maasai have a very visible presence in the camp, from your askari outside your tents who tend to your safety to the staff employed from the nearby villages. Situated technically outside the reserve (crossing a bridge brings you into the reserve) you can enjoy activities that are not allowed in the reserve, such as wildlife walks as well as visits to the Maasai manyatta and tree-planting to enhance the look of your camp. You’re sure to enjoy your fabulous tent. Roomy, with two queen-size beds, each tent has en suite facilities and tasteful furnishings with a private verandah facing the bend of the river. Every attention to detail has been made to provide a comfortable and unforgettable stay while in the Mara. Overnights at the Mara Tipilikwani Camp. (B, L, D daily)

Day 11 - Back to Nairobi, Departure
After breakfast fly back to Nairobi, Kenya's colourful capital city. Lunch at the famous Carnivore Restaurant. Carnivore Barbecue Experience is also described as 'Meat Eaters Paradise' and is the Africa's Greatest Eating Experence! If your flight departs this evening, you may opt to take a day room to rest at The Norfolk Hotel. Your tour leader will advise you on cost and options available. Later, we transfer you to the Airport for your onward arrangements. AfriChoice! airport representative will re-confirm your onward flight, and assist you at check-in.
