About Your Trip

Venture into the Kenyan wilderness in search of lions, leopards, elephants and more, while enjoying the comforts of luxury accommodation on this seven-day adventure. From Nairobi, you’ll set off towards the mountains of the Aberdare National Park for your first game drives. Head west to Lake Nakuru in the Great Rift Valley, where you’ll have an opportunity to spot elusive leopards and rhinos. You’ll then continue to the Loita Hills to gain an insight into Maasai culture, before arriving in the grassy plains of the Maasai Mara – one of the prime places in Africa to spot the Big Five.
