For the adventurous at heart, our African Bush Adventure Safari packs in a mixture of game-viewing and outdoor adrenaline as you pay visits to the Maasai Mara, Amboseli National Park, Lake Naivasha, and Hell’s Gate National Park.
If being cooped up in a safari vehicle for the entirety of your trip doesn’t sound like the way you want to experience Africa, then the Bush Adventure is what you’re looking for.
You’ll go on thrilling game drives in Amboseli and the Maasai Mara, while Hell’s Gate and Lake Naivasha give you the chance to step out of the safari vehicle for walking safaris, boat safaris, cycling, hiking, and more.
DAY 1 – NAIROBI – AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast, we’ll depart from Nairobi for Amboseli National Park. Most famous for its stunning views of Africa’s highest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro, the park offers photographers the rare opportunity to snap photos of elephants, lions, zebras, and giraffes against the startling backdrop of Africa’s most famous mountain.
You’ll have lunch at your lodge upon arrival before heading out into the park for an afternoon game-drive.
DAY 2 – AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK
Wake before the dawn for an unforgettable sunrise game drive within the park. Kilimanjaro never looks quite as beautiful as she does first thing in the morning, and you’ll also get to see predators such as leopards, lions, and cheetahs out on the prowl in the cooler morning air.
They don’t call Amboseli the Royal Court of Kilimanjaro for nothing, and as you take in its large elephant herds and the stunning panorama of Mt. Kilimanjaro, you’ll see why this is one of Kenya’s most beloved pars.
After your morning game drive and a late breakfast, relax at the lodge for a few hours before heading out into the park again in the afternoon. With the animals largely inactive during the warm midday hours, you can get some rest before catching them out and about in the cooling afternoon air.
DAY 3 – AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK – LAKE NAIVASHA – HELL’S GATE NATIONAL PARK
Departing from Amboseli after an early breakfast, you’ll get on the road for your day of adventure. Passing through Nairobi on your way to the Great Rift Valley, you’ll descend to the valley floor and arrive at Lake Naivasha in time for lunch.
After enjoying lunch on the shores of this beautiful lake, you’ll proceed to the famous Hell’s Gate National Park where you’ll be free to explore it by car or on a bike. Feeling extra adventurous? You can even try your hand at rock climbing.
Hell’s Gate is a geothermically active park made up of unique rock formations and active geysers, and is a great place to snap photos as you explore. Don’t miss your chance to descend into Hell’s Gate Gorge for a beautiful hike.
DAY 4 – LAKE NAIVASHA – MAASAI MARA
You’ll depart from Lake Naivasha after breakfast for the drive south to Kenya’s most famous park, the Masai Mara.
You’ll pass through the famous Great Rift Valley on your way as well as passing through the Masai town of Narok. Arriving in the park in time for lunch at your lodge, you’ll then head out into the park for an afternoon game drive in search of lazy lions, tree-climbing leopards, majestic elephants, and more.
DAY 5 – MASAI MARA
Wake with the dawn to witness a sunrise out on the Masai Mara. As the sun sets fire to the savannah, you’ll have the chance to watch predators such as leopards and lions out on the hunt while the air is still cool.
After a late breakfast, you’ll have the choice to either relax at your lodge until lunch and then head out into the park or take a picnic lunch and head out into the park for a day of discovery as you track the movements of the Wildebeest Migration (seasonal) or go in search of the Big Five.
