DAY 01 - Amboseli sopa Lodge - Full Board

It is ‘touch down’ at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Representatives of Zoar Tours, your hosts in Kenya eagerly await your arrival. Welcome to Nairobi, a city experiencing a Renaissance in art and culture. Our airport representative meets you at the airport and depart for the scenic Amboseli National Park, this provides the classic Hollywood image of Africa. Amboseli National Park set at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The park may be best known for its herds of elephants and the ground-breaking research began by Cynthia Moss in the early 1970’s. Along with these gentle giants, other plains game such as zebra, wildebeest and buffalo are in abundance. Arrive in time for lunch at Amboseli Sopa Lodge followed by an afternoon relaxation. Set against the magnificent backdrop of Africa's highest mountain, the glittering Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli Sopa enjoys a uniquely privileged position at the heart of this world-famous national park. Secluded within a grove of acacia trees, the lodge looks out over the golden savannah plains, with uninterrupted views of the mountain itself. This afternoon is the opportunity we have all been looking forward to. We depart on an exciting game viewing drive. Set in rolling savannah scenery, Amboseli National park is dwarfed by the presence of the pink-tinged, snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing volcanic mountain in the world and topped by one fifth of all the ice in Africa. Against this magnificent backdrop roam vast herds of 'giant' elephant accompanied by a kaleidoscope of other fabulous beasts. The park is also an ornithological paradise with over 400 species of birds, all manner of reptilian, flora and fauna and some of the most soul-searing views in Africa. We return to our lodge for Dinner and overnight.

DAY 02 - Amboseli Sopa Lodge - Full Board

Early morning and late afternoon game drives. You may find the parks elephant herds cooling off in the swamp waters, or the tall Maasai giraffe peering at you through the Treetops. The bird life of Amboseli is rich and varied-more than 420 species - 47 of them raptors. Part of the park is composed of a dry lake bed which produces mirages in the shimmering heat swamps and springs are fed by the underground rivers of Kilimanjaro melting snows, and provide permanent water for game. In the evening a visual feast….Kilimanjaro at sunset. Close to Amboseli Sopa Lodge by are a series of emerald green swamps, which are fed by the melting snows of Kilimanjaro. These, the only sources of water in this otherwise starkly beautiful but arid park, attract huge numbers of wallowing elephants, hippos, buffalos and plains game. Meanwhile, from the prehistoric site of Observation Hill, the sunset over Kilimanjaro is magnificent. The marshy, swampy areas of the park are home to the water birds like the Madagascer Squacco Heron and the Lapwing. Vultures, Taita falcon, the southern branded Harrier Eagle and the Taveta golden weaver are also common sightings. Your game runs en-route to the Lodge will introduce you to large numbers of plains game- wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala and gazelle. Look for the elusive kudu, a delicate antelope with long spiral horns and a beautifully striped body that enables it camouflage among branches of acacia and trees and other shrubs. 

DAY 03 - Fairview Hotel - Bed & Breakfast

After Breakfast drive back to Nairobi and we settle happily into the city's Fairview Hotel. The Fairview is that rare bird in Africa a comfortable hotel that hasn’t decked itself out in feathers of up market gloss and tasteless luxury. The hotel’s leafy acres and scattered buildings are laid out on Nairobi Hill, a world away from the overheated bustle. All this, plus a classy brasserie and wine bar and some of the best sushi in the city. The balance of the day is to relax and enjoy the surroundings. A safari briefing answers questions and creates excitement. This safari offers a unique opportunity to combine a wilderness adventure covering a wide range of landscapes; it offers the excitement and glamour of the African bush together with a romantic, and self indulgent itinerary. The lodges and camps chosen are flawless, with very pleasant staff and superb accommodation. Marvel at the vivid array of wildlife and rich diverse landscapes and experience the friendliness and in-depth knowledge of our Drivers and Guides. A sound rest tonight prepares us for tomorrow's adventures. 

DAY 04 - Mara Sopa Lodge - Full Board

Breakfast at Fairview Hotel then you will join an amazing, panoramic voyage through the enigmatic Great Rift Valley - arrive at the world famous Maasai Mara. Stop briefly enroute at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint for stunning views of what is the world's largest valley. Afternoon, enjoy a game viewing drive in this world renown reserve. Maasai Mara is a magnificent landscape of open plains bisected by the Mara River and its tributaries, and punctuated by marshes and forests. Certainly the most frequented game reserve in Kenya, this 650 sq kilometer reserve supports the highest density of game to be seen anywhere.  During the seasonal migrations, Maasai Mara is home to up to a million wildebeest and an equally impressive number of zebras that move into the area from neighboring Serengeti National Park, in Tanzania. The reserve is home to all the “big five” and it is also possible to observe; baboon, eland, ostrich, bat-eared fox, jackal and cheetah. The rivers abound with hippos and crocodiles. Maasai Mara topography creates a unique bio-diverse area, providing guests with the opportunity to venture into the savannah covered with hundreds or even thousands of animals of many different species

DAY 05 - Mara Sopa Lodge - Full Board

Enjoy the entire day in the Maasai Mara with early morning game drive, optional balloon safari at an extra cost and an afternoon game drive. The Mara is also noted for its abundance of lions - particularly the superb black manned males. You'll see lots of elephants here often in large herds, as well as - if you're lucky - leopard, cheetah and rhino. All of the Big Five are residents. You're sure to see the African buffalo. Get the cameras ready, stock up on film and enjoy yourselves! All Meals and overnight is at Mara Sopa Lodge. The Maasai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya’s most precious wildlife sanctuary. This is big game country and long famed as one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of game. Plains game is found here in staggering numbers, which in turn supports a tremendous predator population. Optional Activities: Balloon Safari, Bush Breakfast/Dinner, Visit to the Maasai Village. These vast grasslands are rich with herds of zebras, giraffes, gazelles, and topis. With huge grazing herds, voracious attendant predators, including Africa’s largest population of lions, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, rhino and bountiful birdlife, the Mara is the staging ground for the annual wildebeest great migration. Hippo and crocodile abound in the muddy brown waters of the rivers, which traverse this reserve. The hippos keep you company and only say “Kwaheri” after you have had enough. 

DAY 06 - Return/Departure

After breakfast, say 'Kwaheri' - a Swahili word for bye to Masai Mara and leisurely drive back to Nairobi arriving in time for lunch at Carnivore restaurant. The Carnivore is considered ‘Africa's Greatest Eating Experience. A variety of meats including a selection of exotic meat is roasted over charcoal and carved at your table on traditional Maasai swords (skewers). Delicious side dishes and an exceptional array of sauces complement this fixed price feast that also includes soup, a selection of desserts and Kenyan coffee. Set in attractive tropical gardens, the service and the décor are outstanding. After lunch transfer to the airport for your International flight home.
