The spectacular Rift Valley, with the wide-open plains of East Africa, is stretched before you. On this stunning 9 Days Kenya Highlights Safari Tour, you can spot beautiful pink Flamingos and take in some of the very best of Kenya's Big Five game viewing National Parks and their tribal people and scenery.
On the first day of this Kenya Highlights safari, all clients should meet for a pre-departure meeting at 08h30. This meeting will give you all a chance to meet your fellow travellers and get to know your guides. A representative will meet and assist you with your overnight accommodation in Nairobi.
You head out of the city and travel north to your campsite at the foot of Mt Kenya (5199m), the second highest mountain in Africa. You have the afternoon free to enjoy an optional walk in the forest around the base of Mt Kenya, known for its prolific bird life and black and white Colobus monkeys. Camping (Mountain Rock Bantu Lodge or similar). Lunch and Dinner.
Samburu National Reserve is situated on the banks of the Uaaso Nyiro River in Kenya. This means plenty of water, trees and shade to attract wildlife like Elephant, Lion, Giraffe and Zebra from the surrounding savannah plains. Leopards are also regularly spotted. The Uaaso Nyiro River's magnificent displays are the long and huge Crocodiles, which exceed 6 metres (20 feet) from snout to tail. You will enjoy a game drive en route to your campsite and on day 4 of your Kenya safari tour you will depart on a morning game drive and return to camp for lunch. In the afternoon when the temperature cools off you head out for an afternoon game drive returning in time to prepare dinner. Accommodation for the night will be camping. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
On day 5 of your Kenya safari you will travel to Thompson's Falls and arrive at approximately lunch time - you have the afternoon free to explore the waterfalls which during the rainy season is particularly spectacular. The height of the falls is 75 metres high. Camping in Thomson Falls Lodge. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
On day 6 of your Kenya safari tour you depart for your campsite, on the Kenana Farm. Visit the Kenana Knitters, a local community development project, or the local school. You will visit Lake Nakuru National Park, which is famous for the presence of up to 2 million Flamingos, seasonally feeding on the abundant algae. The park is also well known for its Leopard and, as it is a Rhino sanctuary, sightings of Black and White Rhino are common, as well as Lion and Buffalo. You enjoy an included game drive into the Park on this Kenya vacation. Camping (Kembu Campsite or similar). Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
The famous Masai Mara Game Reserve is known for its density of animals including the 'Big Five' and 453 species of birds. It is one of the most visited reserves in Africa. This National Reserve's plains are predominantly open savannah, interspersed with patches of acacia woodland, and along the Mara River, riparian forest. Whilst game viewing is excellent in the Mara all year round, the most popular time to visit is in late July into August where, over one million Wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of Zebra migrate from the Serengeti. The dramatic river crossings are a gruesome spectacle of survival of the fittest. You will set up camp here for two nights and enjoy early starts, for your game drives, returning to camp for a late breakfast or brunch. Time to reflect and relax for the hotter part of the day and then out for another game drive in the afternoon. You will enjoy the last night of your Kenya safari tour with a dinner around the campfire, listening to the sounds of the open bush. Camping will be outside Sekenani Gate or similar. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
You will enjoy a hearty breakfast, before you break down your camp and head back to Nairobi arriving around lunchtime, where your tour ends. Breakfast. End of your Kenya highlights safari.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
