Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi> Masai Mara. 

Transfer to Maasai Mara. After an early breakfast on the first day of your safari, your Jewel Safari guide will meet you at your hotel in Nairobi, debrief you about your safari before you start your Safari to Maasai Mara National Reserve. The route to the park crosses the Rift Valley with many spectacular views from the road.  Along the rim, as you descend into the valley, you will find many handicraft workshops set up; an excellent opportunity to see some of the local handicrafts produced by the Maasai craftsmen.

Arrival time will be around noon; after checking into your accommodation, you will be served lunch; after which, your guide will take you on an afternoon game drive, which lasts 3-4 hours. These game drives are quite intense in Masai Mara as the variety and number of animals in the park are quite astounding.  With a large number of predators in the park, seeing a “kill” is almost a certainty.

After the game drive, you will return to your accommodation for dinner and overnight in preparation for the next day’s activity.

Day 2: Maasai Mara.

You will have an early breakfast and go for a morning game drive.  Many of the animals in the park are consistently easier to view in the mornings, before the heat of the day, when many of the species seek shelter from the sun.

Return to the lodge/ campsite for lunch and a little relaxation, after which you will be taken on a Balloon Ride to further explore Masai Mara; this time with a totally different perspective – a bird’s eye view. The silent balloon floats above the plains at an optimal distance for photographing the herds. ( this is optional) 

Before nightfall, you will return to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Masai Mara > Lake Nakuru.

After breakfast, you will depart Maasai Mara and drive eastwards, back through the Rift Valley region of Central Kenya. You will notice the huge change in the topography and vegetation as you leave the Maasai Mara area. Lunch en route at a local Kenyan restaurant to experience traditional food.

After lunch, proceed to Lake Nakuru National Park to view the millions of flamingos as they gather at the shores of Lake Nakuru to feed. These flamingos are attracted by the algae in the lake, produced by their droppings. There are literally millions of flamingos and other water birds to see at the lake. Later, you will go on a game drive within the Lake Nakuru National Park and view the largest concentration of rhinos in East Africa, both Black and White Rhinos. Return to the lodge/ budgethotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Lake Nakuru > Amboseli.

After breakfast, you will drive back to Nairobi en route, you may stop at a local market or handicraft workshop.  There are many along the way; a great opportunity to see what produce is grown in the Rift Valley area, which feeds most of Kenya.

On arrival in Nairobi, you will have lunch at The Carnivore Restaurant; famous for its barbequed game meats.

Upon entering the restaurant, you will see a chalkboard displaying the day’s catch, which can number over 25 varieties of game meat.

After lunch, you will drive to Amboseli National Park, home of the proud Masai Tribe and about 2,000 elephants. The park borders Tanzania; just south of the border is Mount Kilimanjaro.  The views of Kilimanjaro from Amboseli are superb.  After checking in at your hotel and a short rest, you will go on an afternoon game drive.  Amboseli is most famous for its elephants, which seem to be everywhere as you move about the park. Before night falls, you will return to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.

Day 5:  Amboseli National Park.

After breakfast, you will be taken on an all-day game drive in the park; lunch will be a picnic, served on a site overlooking Mount Kilimanjaro, which is just south of the park, on the Tanzanian side of the border. Besides elephants, there are many other large mammals, predators, as well as spectacular birdlife in the park.  The dry lake bed of Lake Amboseli is quite large and a good place to see families of ostriches crossing the cracked floor bed. You will also visit the great swamp areas, where you will encounter large numbers of hippos in the water. In the late afternoon, you will return to your lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 6: Amboseli > Nairobi.

You will have breakfast and start your drive back to Nairobi.  En route, you will have the opportunity to stop and do some shopping at the Masai handicraft shops on the side of the road.  Also, depending on the day of the week, your guide can take you to the Masai Market in Nairobi. There are many sights in Nairobi to visit, and your guide will gladly take you on a tour if time permits. Lunch will be served en route or in Nairobi.

Return to your hotel in Nairobi, or the airport depending on your onward schedule.

Jewel Safaris has a jewel in a female driver, Rachel My trip to Lake Mburo National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park on 5th Jan 2024, could not have gone better. My great experience was all down to Jewel Safaris' professionalism and industry experience. The car arrived at my house on time (5 am) to pick me up for the trip. The tour guide driver, a lady named Rachel Aheebwa, was such a delight. Female tour guides drivers are so rare, so this was unexpected. But looking back at how much of a success my tour went, Rachel was the best part of the trip. Two hours into the drive, she suggested a breakfast place that turned out to serve the best coffee I'd ever taken. The small eatery happened to be ran by a lady with tourism experience of 17 years. We set off for Lake Mburo about an hour later and arrived at the park gate three hours later. Because we planned to sleep in Queen Elizabeth National Park and we still had hundreds of kilometers to cover, she made sure we wasted no time Mburo. She was always friendly and firm in her advice when it came to time keeping. We made it to our final destination before dark and had time to rest. Before going to bed, she told me, firmly that we must leave at 7 if we are to see all the animals we wanted to see. I would have loved to sleep in but she made it clear that this was not an option. I was later thankful for this. There were several tourist vehicles at the UWA offices when we arrived. After payments, all the cars left through a Northwards track but Rachel went Eastwards and in less than thirty minutes of Game driving, we hit a jack pot. We found lions on the road and I was able to take close up pictures for several minutes as she made calls to all her friends letting them know that she had found lions. By the time all the vehicles crowded around the lions, I had spend over half an an hour with them. One of the best moments of my life. Jewel safaris couldn't have chosen a better tour guide driver for me. Every thing was well planned to help me see all there was to be seen.
Murchison Falls Adventure This was my first safari adventure and it was a trip of a lifetime. The owner, Dona was very professional and helpful and made sure he understood what we wanted. The vehicle was wonderful and roomy and well kept. Our guide, Patrick made the trip exceptional. He knew the park, he knew the animals and he was a former ranger who spent years protecting the animals of that park. It was clear that the other guides respected him and Patrick was kind, funny and made sure we had a wonderful adventure. The first night, the owner called me to ask how everything was going and he messaged me after the trip to make sure we had a great time. That was above and beyond what I expected. Great company, great customer service and fantastic guide with years of experience. This is the company I would choose over and over.
Great safari!!!! Fantastic. The owner went out of the way to make sure we had what we wanted. I highly recommend Patrick as guide and driver. He loves what he does and you can tell.

Two-day trip to Lake Mburo Our two-day trip to Lake Mburo with our driver and guide Patrick was great. He delivered what we asked for, and more! Other than being a very kind person and good driver, Patrick was able to share a lot of information about the different animals and places we encountered. A big thanks to Jewel Safaris and Patrick! 100% Recommend!

Uganda 2023 We had the great pleasure of having Patrick from jewel safaris for a week in Uganda. Hugely informative and fun, Patrick is a perfect ambassador for a fun, beautiful and dramatic country which is Uganda. A fabulous tour by a class guide. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting most of Africa and Uganda is top. Will go back

Incredible experience Amazing service and amazing country and people. It was an incredible trip, I can’t fault anything. We all enjoyed it so much and our guide was so attentive and catered to what we wanted to do
Utmärkt service, bra bil och kunnig guide. Jewel Safaris arrangerade vår resa till Uganda, med bland annat gorillorna i Bwindi. Vi var även i nationalparken där schimpanserna finns. Jewel Safaris har lång erfarenhet av att anordna safaris i Uganda. Goran
good service We had a great trip with Jewel Safari and would definitely recommend to book trips with Jewel Safari.

Great agency We ordered the trip in 2019 to go to Uganda in April 2020. Then Covid came and the trip was postponed for 2,5 yrs and in the meantime we kept contact and When we finally could go it all went super-smooth. Well organized and very friendly personnel and a fantastic guide. Nothing went wrong during the 10 days we visited and the arrangements were spotless.
