8 Days Discover Kenya Safari

[Nbo-Mara-Nakuru-Amboseli-Tsavo West-Tsavo East-Mombasa]

The Safari Highlight

The major highlight of this safari is visiting wildlife in its natural habitat.  Commencing from Nairobi, the participants visits the  Masai (Maasai) Mara National Reserve  famous for annual wildebeest Migration, Lake Nakuru National Park christined the greatest ornithological spectacle,  Amboseli National Park/Reserve is the home of the most celebrated and longest studied elephants population in the World and finally Tsavo West with its Mzima springs. .  The safari offers diverse experiences with close authentic encounters with wild animals in their natural habitats.

 

Nature has no day or night. It is a full time adventure, with survival of the fittest at play during the day and night.   Dawns and dusts are the necessary transitions for continuity of this play.  At dawn, the nocturnal ( night active) are going back to their dens after full successful or failed hunting escapades.  At dawn, the diurnal ( day actives) lucky to survive the night have risen and busy eating before the scorching sun appear.  Afternoons are characterized by scorching sun with little activity.

 

Pre dawn (before sun rise), early morning game drives are the best as they allow you to spot a mix of diurnal (day actives) and nocturnal ( night active) animals.  At this time the hunting success is at its highest.  At dawn most the birds have risen and are busy catching the worms.   Pre-dawn game drives also gives a chance to observe the spectacle of the sun rise.  Evenings are also ideal especially at the watering holes where both predators and prey meet.  Evening or sundowner game drives gives one a chance to spot these animals and of course the setting sun.

 

In the afternoons you can visit local bomas.  In the evenings, you are entertained by the local cultural tropes of dancers and magicians.  Evening game drives can also be scheduled if you are out of the national parks.
