Kenya is a beautiful and varied nation that is an excellent place to begin your African travel journey.
Great safaris, beautiful beaches, mountains, traditional culture, and sophisticated cities are just a few of the attractions of Kenya, which is one of those nations that have it all.
My perfect Kenya itinerary would include some time on safari at the start of the trip and some time at the beach after the trip, according to my preferences. The possibilities are unlimited, so here are a few suggestions to get you started on your customized Kenya vacation itinerary. Make sure you have the essential documents like your Kenya visa and important things organized.
Day 1: Nairobi
When you arrive at Nairobi International Airport, you will be greeted and you will be transported to our accommodation in the Karen suburbs of Nairobi where you can relax and plan for your happy vacations in Kenya.
Day 2: The Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe Center
An unusual encounter awaits us this morning at the Giraffe Center, where visitors may feed these gentle giants from an elevated platform while warthogs below sniff about for food. Our next stop is to Daphne Sheldrick's Center, where we get to see the numerous newborn elephants that have been saved from dangerous circumstances in Kenya's many national parks.
You can witness the sweet calves getting fed and groomed while enjoying themselves with the caretakers.
The Karen Blixen Museum will be the next stop on our itinerary. The museum was Karen Blixen's primary residence from 1917 until her death in 1931 and is situated on land that was originally part of her enormous coffee plantation. The film 'Out of Africa' made the home and gardens renowned, and the Danish community in Kenya has restored them. At the start of the twentieth century, visitors may get a feel for what it was like to live in colonial Kenya.
We'll stop for lunch at the picturesque Karen Blixen Coffee Gardens before continuing our journey to Lake Elmenteita, a tiny but stunning soda ash lake in the Great Rift Valley's famed Great Rift Valley. More than 400 different bird species may be seen in Lake Elmenteita, including many flamingos. An eco-friendly resort set on the hillside overlooking the lake will be our home for the next two nights.
Overnight Stay At Lake Elmenteita
Day 3: Elmenteita & Nakuru
Elmenteita - Lake Nakuru - Elmenteita.
We explore Lake Nakuru on the second leg of our journey. The lake, which takes its name from the national park it resides in, is a 30-minute drive from Elmenteita. The park is teeming with animals and has a lot to offer visitors. When the water levels have dropped, the whole lake becomes completely submerged with flamingos, making it a vibrant pink color painting. This part of Kenya is home to lions, buffalo, and many rhinos, making a game drive in the park a wonderful experience. We may even be able to get a glimpse of a leopard resting peacefully in a nearby tree if we're fortunate. After a full day of game viewing, we get back at Sunbird Lodge just in time to see the sunset over the lake and toast to the day's accomplishments.
Overnight stay at Lake Elmenteita
Day 4: Masai Mara
Lake Elmenteita - Masai Mara.
Drive to Kenya's famed Masai Mara National Park, where the Great Migration and several animal movies were filmed. When on safari, the Masai Mara is the icing on the cake. Lunch is served at our camp, where we relax and await cooler temperatures for our first game drive in the Mara. When we're back at the camp, supper is served, which offers us the ideal chance to reflect on our day.
Overnight Stay at Masai Mara
Day 5: The Mara: A Scenic Safari
This morning, we hope to see the Big Five on the Mara Safari and other plains animals on our way to the plains. You may catch the animals in their most active phase just before the midday sun begins to beat down on them. Then, after a midday break and lunch, you can return to the reserve to observe other species on your "must-see" list. As you search for the last members of your team, be on the lookout for any movement.
Overnight Stay at Masai Mara
Day 6: Hot air ballooning
Take advantage of the early start time this morning to see the game from a completely new viewpoint! Additional fees are required for an hour-long hot air balloon tour above the Masai Mara that takes off in the fresh early air and flies quietly over the vast expanses of open land. During the drive back to camp and in the afternoon, there are more chances to see wildlife. Over 450 bird species have been found in the Masai Mara Ecosystem, as well as an abundance of superb animals.
Overnight Stay at Masai Mara
Day 7: Nairobi
Masai Mara - Nairobi.
We sip tea or coffee on the balcony as the sun rises over the Masai Mara for the last time. We'll stop in the Great Rift Valley before dropping you off at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to take one more photo before dropping you off. No domestic or foreign flights should leave before 6 p.m. or 5 p.m., respectively.
Best Time To Visit Kenya
From June to October, the greatest time to visit Kenya would be during the country's summer months. However, you should avoid the rainy season from mid-March to May. Both January and February have their charms, although they may become hot in certain spots.
July through September/October is the greatest time to witness the Great Migration in the Masai Mara, but the herds may have arrived earlier, around June.
