Day 1: Kenya Walking Safari: Nairobi

Arrival at the airport at night and reception by Ontdek Kenya. Transfer from the airport to the Nairobi Safari Club or equivalent hotel in Nairobi.

Day 2: Crescent Island. O/N Lake Naivasha Sawela Lodge

After breakfast there is the briefing by the guide about the program. By 8.30 a.m. we leave Nairobi via the Nakuru road to the Rift valley. The Nairobi - Nakuru road is on a contour along the rim of the Rift valley and on viewpoints.

Day 3: Kenya Walking Safari: Hell's Gate National Park. O/N Sawela Lodge

We wake up for breakfast with the sun giving a wonderful effect over the lake. An early morning here should not be missed by anyone with an eye for birds since the lake boasts a wide variety of water and woodland birds.

Day 4: Africa Hiking Safari: Crater Lake. O/N Sawela Lodge

An early rising will ensure that one gets another magical display of the various birds. After breakfast we do a short transfer by car to the nearby Crater Lake nature conservancy. It is a lesser lake in the Rift Valley.

Day 5: Africa Hiking Safari: Visit Lake Nakuru National Park. O/N Sunbird Lodge, Elementaita

The nearby Lake Nakuru National Park is the oldest park of Kenya. It's not only known for its thousands of flamingos but also for the vast herds of buffaloes, tens of rhinos and cats like leopard and lion.

Day 6: Africa Hiking Safari: Lake Elementaita. O/N Sunbird Lodge

Elementaita may not have the big name of Lake Nakuru but its scenic beauty is unmatched. A short descent takes us to the shores of the alkaline lake. From there we proceed up to the yellow fever tree forest, a haven for bird watchers.

Day 7: Africa Hiking Safari: to Maasai Mara. O/N Mara Leisure Tented Camp / Mara Simba Lodge

We now take a break from walking to put all our attention to watching wildlife. To see the best of Kenyan wildlife, Maasai Mara is the place to be. Elephants, rhinos, giraffes, buffaloes, gazelles and all the big cats are found here.

Day 8+9: Maasai Mara. O/N Mara Leisure Tented Camp / Mara Simba Lodge

Sub-saharan safari, zebras in Maasai Mara

These are our cultural and activity days in Maasai Mara. We do a morning game drive through the park and hike to a Masai manyatta (=homestead). Here we will see how the typical Masais live. An afternoon game drive makes the day complete.

On day 9 we do a morning and an afternoon game drive. We break from the driving with an optional walk in a natural area with rolling hills and grasslands, out of the park boundaries.

Day 10: Kiambethu Tea Farm + to Nairobi for outbound flight

Our Africa hiking safari ends with a lunch at the Kiambethu Tea Farm. This is an old colonial home established by the early settlers and the pioneers of tea growing in Kenya.
