A dynamic adventure across the country known for its national parks and pristine beaches with white sand. We will see many wild animals and birds up close, take boat trips on picturesque lakes, walk in ancient cities and ascend the volcano.

  • Day 1-2
    We arrive in Nairobi and check into a hotel. Our trip to Kenya begins with a safari in Nairobi National Park, which is located very close to the capital. An unusual sight - giraffes, herds of zebras, elephants, rhinos - against the background of high-rise buildings and skyscrapers of a huge metropolis. But animals do not seem to mind! We observe the most popular inhabitants of the African continent close by, and then return to Nairobi to enjoy dinner in the famous Carnivore restaurant. Open since 1980, it is known for its barbecue from different types of meat. In the morning we leave for Lake Naivasha (2.5 hours on the way). This is a large freshwater lake with a huge Longonot volcano on the shore. We will take a boat trip, enjoying views of the Great Rift Valley of the main African lakes and picturesque tea plantations. We will also see hippos and many birds, visit the islands on the lake to walk next to wildebeests, zebras and giraffes. After dinner we check into the hotel.
  • Day 3
    Early in the morning we begin our hike to the top of the Longonot volcano (1 hour hike). We reach the crater and see that it is green inside! Where more than a hundred years ago red lava was seething, now a forest grows, filled with zebras, giraffes and even buffalos! We will walk around the crater in about 3 hours, enjoying the incredible views. Return to Nairobi (2.5 hours on the way).
  • Day 4-5
    In the morning we fly to Lodwar and head to the shore of Lake Turkana (1.5 hours on the way). We will spend the night in the colorful village of Elie Springs. Several thousand people live here next to fresh water sources in simple houses made of clay and straw. Their life has changed little in recent centuries - the food is still cooked on the open fire, the buffaloes are grazing in the shadows. But did you know that this seemingly unremarkable village is the cradle of human civilization? The remains of the ancestors of Homo sapiens, who are more than 300 thousand years old were found by scientists in this village and are now displayed in the Smithsonian Institution Museum in Washington. We will check into a cozy hotel near the village and will observe the authentic life and get to know the locals. In the morning, we take a speed boat to Central Island National Park - a chain of dozens of volcanoes and lakes that fill their craters. Imagine that these volcanoes with lakes inside are located in the middle of the picturesque Lake Turkana! We will see the most picturesque lakes with crocodiles and flamingos. For the night we return to Elie Springs.
  • Day 6-7
    In the early morning we go back to Lodwar (1.5 hours) and fly to Nairobi. We head to Amboselli National Park (up to 4 hours on the way) and check into a camp. Early in the morning we begin our safari and see families of elephants, lions, zebras and many other animals. All this - against the backdrop of the snowy peaks of Africa's highest point - Mount Kilimanjaro! How to convey the feeling when you look into the eyes of a lion lying in the yellow grass, with a huge peak covered in eternal snows behind? This is a must see for everyone! Next, we will visit the village of the Masai tribe - perhaps the most famous people in Africa. We will walk into the traditional huts to see how these people in bright clothes live, learn more about their religion and traditions and even see the famous dance of warriors. Masai believe that a boy cannot be considered a man until he proves his strength in this dance!
  • Day 8-9
    Early in the morning we leave for the main port of the country - the city of Mombasa (6-7 hours on the way). We will explore the old city, and then go to the best beach of the coast, Diani Beach (1.5 hours on the way) where we will check into a hotel. The next day is free. Enjoy the warm ocean, clear water and green jungle. If you did not know that Kenya boasts the best beaches in Africa, then you will be more than pleasantly surprised!
  • Day 10
    Flight back to Nairobi and flight back home.
