6 Day Safari Itinerary

Mount Kenya and Masai Mara Adventure

Big game and mountain views

This compact safari combines the big game of the Masai Mara, and flamingos of Lake Nakuru, with the lesser known Mount Kenya National Park which offers spectacular bird-watching and stunning lakeside and mountain views.

Why not extend your getaway by adding on a beach stay afterwards – perhaps on the Kenyan coast or the exotic islands of Zanzibar or Pemba off Tanzania – our Destination Specialists can create your perfect itinerary. 

Our Experts Recommend:
  • See diverse bird life at Aberdare National Park
  • Explore Lake Nakuru National Park
  • Spot the Big Five in the Masai Mara National Reserve
  • Add on an excursion in Nairobi to see wildlife up close
