Day 3: Aberdare National Park
Heading South after breakfast, the option is to spend a night in one of the two unusual tree lodges in the Aberdare National Park. Treetops Lodge where Princes Elizabeth stayed in 1952 in the night that her father died and she became the Queen, or the Ark Lodge built in the shape of Noah’s Ark. At night, stay up to watch the game activities over the floodlit waterholes. This park is unusual in that it lies above 21,000m (68,880 ft.) and so has a more alpine feel, with mountains, streams, valleys, and moorland by the doorstep

Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park
After another morning breakfast, your safari will head to Lake Nakuru.

Other species include various antelope, giraffe, zebra, lion, rhino, and leopard (which can actually be spotted during daylight hours in the arms of the giant yellow acacia trees near the entrance).

Days 5 and 6: Maasai Mara National Reserve
You will spend two nights in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya’s most famous game park with an extraordinary density of animals, including the Big Five. In July and August, it’s also the scene of the migration, when hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, plus smaller numbers of zebra and antelope, arrive in search of fresh grazing from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to the south. The predators follow the herds, so this is the best time to witness plenty of animal action, especially if you get the opportunity to see the wildebeest cross the Maasai Mara River, where they have to dodge crocodiles too.
Overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge

Day 7: Nairobi
An early morning game drive in Maasai Mara before breakfast followed by late breakfast at the Lodge/camp and departure for Nairobi stopping sporadically for the breathtaking panoramic views of the rift valley and adjacent landforms. The tour returns to Nairobi late in the afternoon with sweet memories.

Here you can watch baby elephants tearing around; kids will love it. they’ll also enjoy feeding the giraffes at the Langata Giraffe Centre.
