  • Drive along the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley
  • Watch flocks of flamingo takes flight on Lake Nakuru
  • Keep eyes peeled for all manner of wildlife in the Masai Mara
  • Set out on game drives across the Serengeti
  • Descend into Ngorongoro Crater in search of elephants and rhino populations
  • Spot the famous tree-climbing lions of Lake Manyara National Park


After arriving in Kenya's frenetic capital, be transferred from the airport to your hotel. Head to the National Museum to be versed in Kenyan history, spot a 3.2 million-year-old skull and later suss out the local nightlife.
Set off northbound across the Great Rift Valley, stopping en route at Lake Navaisha for some bird and hippo spotting. Settle in at the eco-lodge accommodation near Lake Elementaita, then head off in search of rhinos, buffalo and flocks of bright pink flamingos in Lake Nakuru National Park.
Keep eyes peeled and cameras at the ready to catch the Big Five stalking and grazing the plains of the Masai Mara. Lunch by the banks of the Mara River, the perfect vantage point for spotting crocs and hippos. Perhaps take to the air for an unforgettable hot air balloon ride at sunset.
Drive on to Kisii, a city famed for its skilled soap stone carvers. Watch some of these masters at work, or enjoy an authentic meal at a local resturant.
Scan the Serengeti's endless savannahs for more than 35 species of wildlife. This is one of the planet's ultimate wildlife viewing platforms. Cheetahs, lions leopard and hyenas all jostle for plains supremacy, and if you happen to be travelling during the annual migration, you'll also bear witness to more than a million zebras and wildebeests storming the grasslands.
Descend into the lush, verdant grasslands of the Ngorongoro Crater for more wildlife spotting. If there are any animals that have eluded your sights thus far, you're almost guaranteed to spot them here. Approximately 30,000 large animals live in the crater, including black rhinos, crocodiles and hippos.
Pack your bags and prepare to farewell East Africa, but not before one more group meal. Cheers a Safari Lager to a successful East African Discovery and indulge on a meal of fragrant local delicacies.
