Kenya Safari & Beach day-to-day itinerary

Day 1 Nairobi
Arrive in Nairobi where you will be met by your guide and accompanied to your hotel.


Day 2 Nairobi – Amboseli
After breakfast depart for Amboseli, arriving in time for lunch at your lodge. This afternoon you will take your first game drive.

Amboseli is one of the most scenic game reserves in Kenya, the grassy savannah, rolling hills and picturesque acacia trees set against the magnificent backdrop of snow-capped Mount Kilamanjaro, just over the border in Tanzania. The park is particularly famous for its large herds of elephant which can be seen ambling across the plains. There is also an abundance of other big game; this is classic safari country.


Day 3 Amboseli
A full day to explore Amboseli National Park. You can either take an early morning and late afternoon game drive and return to the camp for time to relax during the middle of the day, or alternatively you can spend the full day on a game drive, taking a picnic lunch with you.


Day 4 Amboseli – Tsavo West
After breakfast you will depart for Tsavo West National Park, taking game drives en route to your lodge. Once you arrive in Tsavo you will have lunch at your tented camp before heading out for an afternoon game drive.

The two game reserves of Tsavo East and West combine to create Kenya’s largest national park in an area that is larger than Wales. Tsavo West is the more scenic of the two, with rolling hills, stark volcanic outcrops, bubbling springs and ancient lava fields. Tsavo East is much flatter but the parched bushveld is cut through by the Galana and Athi rivers where large populations of crocodiles lurk in wait of prey.

All of Africa’s most iconic animals can be found in significant numbers in the park, so there are excellent game viewing opportunities. Our favourite part of the park is the Mzima Springs, a series of pools filled with crystal clear water and shaded by palm and fig trees which the children will love as they are home to lumbering hippos, hungry crocodiles and hundreds of chattering monkeys.


Day 5 Tsavo
A full day of game drives.

Day 6 Tsavo West – Beach
After breakfast you will take a final game drive as you work your way to the edge of the park en route to the beach. Hopefully you might spot one final lion before you finish your safari!

Once you leave the park behind you it is a relatively short drive to the relaxing beaches of the Indian Ocean. You have four nights to kick back, relax, grab a cocktail (or mocktail for the children) and enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

There is a wide range of resorts to choose from but we will ensure that wherever you end up there will be wonderful views over the ocean, beautiful white sandy beaches and a few swaying palm trees to provide a bit of shade.

Depending on your budget and the interests of your family we can either suggest a small personal resort on a peaceful section of beach, or a larger hotel with lots of water sports and activities if you like to intersperse your sunbathing with a bit of action.


Days 7 – 9 Beach
Three full days to relax and enjoy the beach. Although we usually leave you with free time on the beach, if you would like us to organise excursions for you we can arrange a visit to the old town of Mombasa, a boat trip in search of dolphins or perhaps a diving course. Please ask us if you would like suggestions.


Day 10 Beach – Airport
Transfer to the airport in time for your flight home.
