Kenya is on every safari lover’s ‘to do’ list. This fun itinerary makes it easier for those whose budgets may not be as long as a giraffe’s neck to visit East Africa. Driving between destinations and choosing down-to-earth accommodation not only adds up to considerable savings, it also means more time on the ground and getting a real feel for Kenya.

You set off from Nairobi to Amboseli, a smaller national park that still packs a punch for its size. Then it is off to Lake Nakuru National Park, a secret gem that offers a great ‘breather’ before you finish off with three nights in Naboisho, a successful conservancy in the Mara ecosystem that is known for high-octane wildlife sightings.


Kenya lodged itself firmly in my heart after I spent nearly a month travelling through Amboseli, the Masai Mara, Samburu and onto Diani and Galu on the coast. Two stand-out experiences were seeing black rhinos in Lewa (their horns are incredibly long) and photographing Grevy’s zebra, of which only a handful are left. It was also a kick to see my first gerenuk, an antelope that can stand on its hind legs for minutes at a time to feed!

Waiting for you at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport will be your driver-guide who will transfer you to your overnight stop in Nairobi, the Tamarind Tree Hotel. This is one of the biggest cities in Africa and its incredible to think this pulsating metropolis gives away to pristine golden savannah…

The Tamarind is a slick hotel with all the mod cons, perfect for getting over a long-haul flight. It is also home to Kenya’s most famous restaurant – the renowned Carnivore.

Why we love Tamarind Tree Hotel:

  • Good proximity to Nairobi’s major attractions
  • Coffee shop, cocktail bar and relaxing lounge
  • Experiential Carnivore restaurant for meat lovers
  • Large sparkling pool for swimming laps

After a good night’s sleep, excitement mounts as you leave Nairobi behind and head out to Amboseli. Although not as large as other national parks, it has varied habitats, a significant elephant population and – best of all – the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is the place to get those classic shots of elephants grazing in front of Africa’s highest mountain.

The team at Ol Tukai will be waiting to welcome you to their sprawling and friendly lodge for two nights.

Why we love Ol Tukai Lodge:

  • Large grounds with wide savannah views
  • Huge swimming pool for cooling down
  • Dedicated kids’ club
  • Tasteful African décor throughout

With lovely memories of Amboseli, you are back in the transfer vehicle today for the drive to Lake Nakuru National Park, which is part of the incredible Great Rift Valley. Along the way you pass Elementaita, a large soda lake. The scenery is dazzling and Nakuru is famous for its birdlife, especially flamingos.

Lake Nakuru Lodge is an ideal overnight stopover. Depending on when you arrive, you may have time to relax in the spa or enjoy a horse ride.

Why we love Lake Nakuru Lodge:

  • Rooms with private terraces and bathtubs
  • Gentle horse riding to see more of the park
  • Spectacular birding – bring your binos!
  • Optional tree-planting to mark your stay

Kenya’s conservancy system is an efficient and successful way to bring large tracts of private land into wildlife conservation. The animals benefit from protection, traditional landowners receive an income and guests get an almost private experience with few other vehicles around.

Three full nights in the Naboisho Conservancy will show you just how well this system works and you will be welcomed back every evening to Eagle View, a tranquil eco-camp overlooking the gently undulating Koiyaki Plains.

Why we love Eagle View:

  • Overlooks a productive waterhole
  • Hilltop setting allows for beautiful views
  • Comfortable minimalism so nature shines
  • Chance to see the outliers in the Great Migration

A lot can happen in a week and no doubt much has since you left Nairobi and journeyed through Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Naboisho, marvelling at the wildlife along the way. Depending on your schedule, you may have time for a final early morning game drive but, if not, savour a final breakfast on the deck.

Then it is time to sit back for the drive to Nairobi and either Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or your overnight accommodation.
