Spend the day on a game drive. On this day you will visit the Mara River for hippo and crocodile viewing. The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena, and vultures.
After breakfast, we pack up again and leave the Masai Mara, with a picnic lunch en route to the Serengeti. Cross the Kenya - Tanzania common border at Isebania and Serari and proceed to Serengeti National Park (via Ndabaka). Serengeti means 'endless plains' and is derived from the Masai language. The park lies in a high plateau between the Ngorongoro highlands and the Kenya and Tanzania border. If time permits shall have an en-route game drive. Dinner and overnight stay at a deluxe safari camp.
Spending another day at the Serengeti translates into a better game viewing and photography experience, and enjoy every single moment of your safari in the Serengeti National Park, summed up as 'one of the most unique areas in the world'. The Serengeti contains the largest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, on a scale, which has no parallel anywhere else in the world
Every day is an adventure on a walking safari. Whether you have done it before or this is your first time, the experience is hard to beat.

Your first stop is the Samburu National Reserve in the north of Kenya. Spend time in the nearby villages and learn how the Samburu people survive in the harsh environment, get caught up in the rush of market day or walk through the savannah with a Masai warrior by your End your trip on Lamu Island. Holding an exotic blend of Swahili and Arabic culture hidden behind ornate doors, elaborate mosques and a medina of winding streets, Lamu is the perfect place to see a very different side of Kenya.
