With vast grasslands dotted with herds of buffalo, prides of lions lazing in the shade of acacia trees, and Maasai villages, peopled by warrior tribes, Kenya is the Africa of your dreams. This 6-day group tour hits up its most iconic wildlife arenas, from the magical Maasai Mara to Amboseli National Park. We’ll take you to the heart of the savannah, where you’ll have the best chance of seeing everything from giraffes and zebras to hippos, crocs, and leopards. You’ll meet Maasai tribes, visit a community project in Nairobi’s slums, and have the opportunity to meet baby elephants at a local elephant orphanage! With tons of included game drives, local guides, and awesome safari vehicles, it’s the best way to see this jaw-dropping part of the world on a budget.
- Take four game drives in the Maasai Mara with local guides, to see lions, elephants, buffalo, and various antelope species in their natural habitat
- Head into the wilds of Amboseli National Park to see the Big Five against the backdrop of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro
- Visit a community project in Nairobi’s Kibera Slum, that’s helping local people in need
- Take a morning game drive in Nairobi National Park, the world’s only national park in a capital city
Day 1: Jambo Nairobi! Touch down on Nairobi’s red earth before piling into the safari vans and heading to the Maasai Mara for our first safari drive. We’ll have the chance to see lions, elephants, buffalo and antelope. After an incredible afternoon, enjoy dinner at the lodge with your new mates.
Day 2: Maasai Mara. Take your morning to the next level with an optional hot air balloon ride. Then rejoin the group for a morning game drive. Keep your eyes peeled for cheetahs stalking stealthily, hippos and crocs wallowing, and maybe even the elusive leopard high in the trees. Opt for an optional second game drive this afternoon.
Day 3: Maasai Mara to Nairobi. Wake up to the sounds of the bush before one last spectacular game drive in the Maasai Mara. Then travel back to Nairobi where we’ll visit an organisation in the Kibera Slum that helps local women and children improve their quality of life through education.
Day 4: Nairobi to Amboseli. Take an optional morning game drive in Nairobi National Park (the only National Park in a capital city) before a serious dose of cuteness, as we head to a local elephant orphanage (local payment applies). After a picnic lunch, travel to our lodge on the edge of Amboseli National Park.
Day 5: Amboseli National Park. Take an optional safari walk in a local Maasai village. Then enjoy some lunch before heading into Amboseli. With sweeping plains dotted with elephants, giraffes, and zebras, and Mount Kilimanjaro as a backdrop, you’ll want to have that camera ready!
Day 6: Amboseli to Nairobi. We’ll go out with a bang with one last morning drive in Amboseli National Park before travelling back to the Kenyan capital with hearts, minds, and camera reels full. Better start planning the next trip!

This trip begins and ends in Nairobi, Kenya. Jomo Kenyatta International (NBO) is the nearest airport. We’ll head straight to the Maasai Mara on day 1 so you will need to arrive a day early and book an additional night of pre-trip accommodation. A travel advisor can assist you with this. Arrival airport transfers are not included, so you’ll need to make your own way to our starting hotel. Taxi takes around 40 minutes, depending on traffic.
On day 6 you will be dropped back in Nairobi (either at our hotel or at the airport) at around 3pm. We strongly recommend booking an extra night at the end of your stay and flying out the following day in case of delays.
5 nights of accommodation are included. You’ll spend 4 nights in cosy lodges, and 1 night in a hotel. Accommodation is on a twin-share basis. Let us know if you’re travelling with a partner or friend and we can make sure you’re placed together.
