Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met and welcomed by an Image Travel Limited representative. They will arrange and transfer you to your Nairobi hotel for your overnight stay at Nairobi Serena Hotel on a bed and breakfast basis.

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is situated on the equator, west of Nanyuki between the foothills of the Aberdares and Mount Kenya. The Conservancy boasts of the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa and in 2013, it reached a population milestone of 100 black rhinos. It also houses the three remaining Northern white rhinos in the world. The Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary is situated here and provides a haven for orphaned, abandoned, and rescued chimpanzees. It is the only place in Kenya where these great apes can be seen. The Conservancy is host to the “Big Five” among a large selection of other African animals.

Have a full day spent in the Ol Pejeta Sweetwaters Conservancy with an early morning and late afternoon game drive. Our camp also overlooks one of the busiest waterholes in the area and offers elephant, giraffe, and myriad plains game. In fact, Sweetwaters boasts excellent game viewing with the highest ratio of game to area of any park or reserve in Kenya. Moreover, the camp has its own private waterhole and salt lick so we’ll be guaranteed unprecedented close encounters. Whether it's day or night game drives, camel trekking, lion tracking, al fresco dining, or relaxing by the pool, Sweetwaters is bound to delight.

Depart Ol Pejeta Conservancy after breakfast for Lake Nakuru National Park, arriving at the park in time for lunch. In the afternoon, a game drive is planned. Besides the flamingos that the lake is famous for, there are approx 400 other species of birds visiting the lake. Also, many species of game can be found in the park including the introduced Rothschild's giraffe, black and white rhino, waterbuck, reedbuck, lion, buffalo, leopard, baboon and many species of plains game.

Depart after breakfast and drive further along the floor of the Rift Valley to Masai Mara National Reserve arriving at the lodge/camp in time for lunch. Check in at the lodge, have lunch and relax a bit. Have an afternoon game drive that introduces this vast game-filled reserve.

Have a full day spent exploring the park in search of the Big Five. An optional hot air balloon safari can be arranged at an extra cost of US$ 450 per person. Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You'll easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopards, many kinds of antelopes and elephants. Mara is where the most spectacular event in the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from Serengeti, Tanzania, in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna—lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena, and vultures. An optional visit to a local Maasai village is at a cost of US$25 per person not included in the price.

After breakfast at your hotel, drive to Lake Naivasha—the highest and purest of the Great Rift Valley lakes. This area is famous for its birdlife, a breeding ground for pelicans, fish eagles, cormorants and more. You will also find other animals such as hippos, zebras, antelopes, and Colobus monkeys. You can also enjoy an optional boat ride at the lake viewing hippos, crocodiles, fish eagles and other animals at a cost of $40 per person.

After breakfast, drive to Amboseli National Park, which is famous for its scenery with a backdrop of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which dominates the landscape, and open plains. Arrive for more game drives proceeding to your lodge for check-in, in time for lunch. Check-in at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge. Have lunch and a short rest. In the afternoon, have a game drive in search of popular residents like the well-known predators and their opponents like the zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, and hippo with a view of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Have an early breakfast followed by a morning game drive in the park. Amboseli offers opportunities such as viewing large herds of elephants, Mount Kilimanjaro, and the Big Five. You'll visit Observation Hill which allows an overall view of the whole park, especially the swamps and elephants. Swamps below Observation Hill hosts many elephants, buffaloes, hippos and a variety of waterfowls like pelicans and Egyptian geese. An optional visit to a Maasai village is available at US$30 per person can be experienced in the afternoon. Here you learn about their tribal social systems, customs and the place of the Maasai in today’s Africa. Residents live in their Manyatta, or village, much as they have for centuries and a visit gives you an opportunity to see the interior of these mud-hut homes, spotless and unadorned, contrasted with the Maasai themselves, bedecked with brilliantly coloured beads and cloths.

Have early morning game drives and return to your lodge for breakfast. After breakfast, leave Amboseli for Tsavo West National Park. The drive will be less than 3 hours to Tsavo West. Have a game drive en route from the sight of fifty million gallons of crystal clear water, gushing out from the under-parched lava rock that is the Mzima Springs to the Shetani Lava Flow.
