Kenya Overland Adventure
6 days with G Adventures Rating:
Day 1 Nairobi
Arrive at anytime. Prepare for tomorrow’s early morning by checking out the Hotel Boulevard Bar with your newest friends. Travelling can take a lot out of you so sit back, fill those food and drink needs, and spend a chill night becoming familiar with your group and CEO.
Day 2 Nairobi/Masai Mara
Hit the road and journey through the Great Rift Valley today on the way to one of the most famous national parks in Africa and Kenya’s premier wildlife reserve. Stretch those legs and take in your surroundings before heading on a late afternoon wildlife safari drive with excellent chances of seeing the “big five” — lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and rhino. This natural environment coupled with the park’s varied wildlife provides for a spectacular safari experience. (B, L, D)
Day 3 Masai Mara
Grab those cameras and jump in the safari vehicle with your driver/guide to spot wildlife in the Masai Mara National Reserve. Listen to your guide describe the African bush as you traverse one of the world’s top safari destinations. Masai Mara is known for its abundance of big cats and wildebeest (see if you can capture a picture of one)! (B, L, D)
Day 4 Masai Mara/Lake Nakuru National Park
Awake to the sounds of the bush as your alarm clock before breaking down camp and jumping in the Lando. Today, the group is heading to Lake Nakuru, known for harbouring flocks of pink flamingos and a rich variety of bird species. Along the way you’ll stop for lunch at Café Ubuntu, a G Adventures-supported project that trains and employs local women and mothers of children with disabilities. You’ll get to explore the craft centre, meet some of the women who create what you see, and sit down for a delicious farm-to-table meal. The group will stop for the afternoon at the safari lodge inside Lake Nakuru National Park then you will be going on a late afternoon wildlife drive to try and spot the resident rhinos in the area. (B, L, D)
Day 5 Lake Nakuru National Park/Eldoret
Another day, another chance to see more wildlife and live your African safari dream. After your morning safari drive around Lake Nakuru keeping your eyes wide open in search of black and white rhino, buffalo, impala, and the elusive leopard the group will bump along in the Lando sharing photos of your day on the road to Eldoret. (B, L, D)
Day 6 Eldoret/Kampala
It’s time to cross another country off of those travel lists as you cross the border from Kenya into Uganda. Drive along reminiscing on inside jokes and experiences from the trip before arriving in Kampala in the late afternoon. If you plan on flying out today, please do not book flights before 11:30pm. If you aren’t ready to go home yet (we don’t blame you) talk to your CEO about extending and get to know more of Uganda or beyond. (B, L)
