  • Capture iconic images for yourself as wildlife flows in front of you, and africa’s tallest peak looms beautifully on the horizon beyond amboseli
  • The masai mara is quintessential, breathtaking africa – filled with lions, cheetahs, elephants and more. when not on safari, relax in spacious, fully insect-proof tents with private en suites, situated within the park itself
  • Enjoy the benefits of a fully comprehensive itinerary but with the freedom and intimacy of a private tour
  • Flying between destinations means you spend less time in transit and more time spotting wildlife and relaxing at your lodge

Short Description

Amboseli National Park is Africa's premier destination when it comes to viewing elephants in the wild, and mighty Mount Kilimanjaro on the skyline takes the photogenic splendour to the next level. After exploring this vast expanse, head for the great plains of the Masai Mara. Renowned for its high concentration of big cats, hundreds of bird varieties and the annual Great Migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles, the Masai Mara National Reserve is one of Africa’s most spectacular attractions. On this short independent trip, enjoy leisurely breakfasts and quiet afternoons between explorations. Independent Experiences Independent travel, without the stress. Peregrine’s Independent Experiences are a range of short packages that you can add to other Experiences or as an extension to a longer tour, to craft your perfect holiday itinerary. Independent Experiences are for 1-3 travellers, depart daily and offer the back-up of Peregrine, our local offices and expert resident guides.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Itinerary

Day 1 Nairobi / Amboseli National Park

Start at your Nairobi hotel, or at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You are met by a Peregrine representative and transferred to Wilson Airport (Nairobi's domestic airport). Fly from Wilson Airport at 7:30 am to the Amboseli National Park airstrip, meet your local guide and transfer to your camp. After freshening up, head out on a two-hour game drive before returning to the lodge for lunch. Relax in the afternoon, then head out on another game drive. Your accommodation for the next two nights is a comfortable lodge located in the heart of Amboseli National Park with stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro. The park is one of the most fascinatingly diverse on the continent, with five distinct habitats – open grasslands, acacia woods, scrub steppe, swamps and marshland.

Day 2 Amboseli National Park

Enjoy game drives though this 390 square-kilometre park in the morning and afternoon. Wildlife-viewing is excellent here, as sparse vegetation lures animals into the open. Look out for the ‘Big Five’ - lions, cape buffalo, leopard, rhino and the elephants for the which the park is best known. There are an estimated 1,300 elephants living in the park, attracted by the swamps and marshes, and it will not take long for you to come across a lumbering, but graceful, herd walking right up to your 4x4 (having often been habituated to humans after years of extensive study). This area has thankfully stayed free of poachers, and so many of the bull elephants have impressively large tusks. As well as unforgettable encounters with these peaceful pachyderms, there are Masai giraffe, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelle, and cheetah to be found in the park, as well as prolific birdlife. This evening relax in your wonderfully appointed lodge, and then drift off to sleep surrounded by the sounds of the wilderness.

Day 3 Masai Mara National Reserve

Today you will fly to the Masai Mara via Wilson Airport in Nairobi. Explore the Masai Mara, one of the finest game reserves on the continent. Take in vistas of rolling green plains and riverine woodlands, not to mention many species of game. Here you will have lunch on arrival before an afternoon game drive departs around 4pm and returns after sunset. On returning to the camp, freshen up before joining other guests around the campfire for a pre-dinner drink. Dinner is served by candlelight in the dining tent. Enjoy a nightcap by the fire before retiring to the sounds of the wild.

Day 4 Masai Mara National Reserve

Explore the park on further game drives today. The Masai Mara National Reserve is famed for its physical beauty and abundance of wildlife – along with the ‘Big Five’, there are also 570 recorded bird types in the park, including the grey-crowned crane and the colourful lilac-breasted roller. Your daily routine at Masai Mara varies. On some days picnics are taken out on extended half-day or full-day game drives. Your typical daily routine however starts with waking at dawn for a light breakfast followed by an early morning game drive, setting off at sunrise and returning to the camp three to four hours later. Because you leave the camp as the sun rises you shouldn't have any trouble spotting wildlife, as this is often one of the most active times of day for animals. Look out for massive herds of wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson's and Grant's gazelle, all of which roam these verdant grasslands. Elephants, giraffes and elands are also commonly sighted. There are also escorted bush walks available from the camp, when you can get right into the heart of the landscape, learn to identify animal tracks, and get closer to African wildlife than you ever thought possible.

Day 5 Masai Mara / Nairobi

Enjoy your final sunrise game drive to soak up the memorable Masai Mara vistas, and then have a leisurely breakfast until departure. If you arrived on the morning flight into the Masai Mara, you will be booked on the morning flight back that arrives back in Nairobi between 12 noon and 1pm. Please do not book onward flights out of Nairobi prior to 6pm. If you arrived on the afternoon flight into the Masai Mara you will be booked on the afternoon flight, arriving back into Wilson Airport between 5pm and 6pm. Please do not book onwards flights out of Nairobi prior to 10pm. Upon arrival into Wilson Airport you will be met and transferred to either a Nairobi city hotel or Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Please note that the actual flight you are booked on is subject to availability and will be confirmed upon booking.

We arrived home last week following an 11 day tour with Peregrine Plus, Lima, The Sacred Valley and Lake Titikaka. It was amazing beyond all our expectations. Our private guide was a Peruvian local, English speaking, he was excellent great local knowledge and organised everything like clockwork. Our accommodation was brilliant we were treated like royalty, check out Hotel B in Lima, Sol Luna Urubamba and Hotel Belmond Monasterio in Cusco. Would highly recommend this tour and look forward to another experience with Peregrine in the future.

My first ever trip in smaller numbers - loved it, yes, loved it so much as we could do things that larger groups can not do. Ecuador, Peru including the Amazon region, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Brazil were awash with fantastic experiences with the stunning and majestic sights, the people and their culture, the food, animal and bird life and of course, what I accomplished by surprising myself at the Incan ruins. Our guides, Alejandro in Ecuador, Sally in Peru and Sabina in Chile, Argentina and Brazil were just the best Ambassadors for Peregrine as they showed such passion for their country and genuine care for each of our small number to return home with amazing memories to abide in our hearts forever. Muchas Gracias to each of you as you have touched my life with a very special imprint. I highly recommend this full trip for the entire 6 weeks just in case you have not noticed.

This trip was fabulous and it was made even better with the knowledge and expertise of our Spanish-speaking guide, Jorge Riofru. Jorge smoothed over all our difficulties and showed us the real Peru that is his homeland. He was able to ensure that my coeliac diet was catered for even when we were trekking to Machu Picchu! this trip was enhanced by the deep knowledge and love that Jorge has for his country. this has been one of the best trips ever.

As the name suggests, this is not a group trip, so it is just you (and your travelling companions if you booked with a friend). You will have 24/7 support from your guide and our local office.
