Typical Day


Day 01 - Nairobi City

Arrival Nairobi. Meet and greet and escorted to The Stanley Hotel in the heart of the city by Holiday Kenya safaris representatives. You will be assisted with check-in procedures. Rest of the afternoon is spent on a Nairobi orientation sightseeing featuring visits to Nairobi's principal land marks, the parliament buildings, and the capital hill to have a panoramic view of Nairobi. Situated in the Central Highlands at an altitude of 6,130 feet (1,870 meters), Nairobi enjoys a mild climate. On our driving tour of the city and its surroundings we will see Uhuru Park, Kenya's Parliament House, the Kenyatta Conference Centre, City Square and some of Nairobi's nicest suburbs. We visit the Kenya National Museum with our guide to learn about Kenya's wildlife, geology and human history. This evening, we assemble for a safari briefing before proceeding to the famous Carnivore Restaurant for a mouth-watering barbecue "Welcome to Kenya" dinner. Return to your city hotel. Overnight at NAIROBI SAFARI CLUB. [Dinner, Bed & Breakfast]

.

Day 02 - Nairobi - The Aberdare (The Ark Hotel)

Our safari begins with the thrill of overnight game viewing in the comfort of a Tree Hotel. The lush hills of Aberdare National Park are covered by Kenya's densest forest and form the eastern flank of the Great Rift Valley. Outside the park itself we pass many ranches, coffee plantations and early European settlements. We leave our main luggage at the base hotel and continue with just our overnight bags to one of the famous "tree hotels", deep in the Aberdare Forest. On our journey to our lodge we hope to see typical forest-dwelling animals such as the black and white Columbus Monkeys. A special feature of the lodge where we stay is the floodlit watering hole where we can watch from the lodge itself throughout the night as a great variety of animals come down to drink. Different species of animals are active during the night compared with during the day and many shy species such as rhinos will only approach the lodge at night. It is fascinating to watch their behavior around the watering hole as they take turns in drinking from the watering hole and eating the salt which is put out for them at the 'salt lick'. In the morning we hope to have spectacular views towards jagged outline of Mount Kenya. There is also excellent bird watching from the lodge terrace into the surrounding trees. Overnight at THE ARK HOTEL. (Lunch, Dinner, Bed and breakfast)

Day 03 - Aberdare - Samburu Game Reserve

Driving north we pass Mount Kenya, Africa's second highest mountain at 17,000 feet (5,199 metres). The massive size of this mountain and its gleaming and eroded snow-covered multiple peaks means that Mount Kenya dominates the surrounding countryside and even affects the local climate. This is also the traditional homeland of the Kikuyu people, the largest of Kenya's 40 recognized tribes. The Kikuyu believe that their god, Ngai, lives on Mount Kenya and so they build their homes with the doors facing towards the mountain, to welcome their god in. We cross the Equator again into the northern hemisphere on our way to Samburu Game Reserve in a semi-desert area of Kenya. Samburu is located on the Ewaso Nyiro River. In this dry land the forested riverbanks are excellent areas to see wildlife, as all animals congregate here to drink, especially at dusk and early in the morning. This afternoon we take a game drive in the park. First of 2 nights in Samburu. SAMBURU GAME LODGE (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner).

Day 04 - Samburu Game Reserve

Early morning and afternoon game drives in Samburu Game Reserve, which covers 40 square miles (104 square kilometers). Ololokwe Table Mountain forms a dramatic backdrop to our game viewing today. In Samburu we are sure to see elephants, warthogs and buffalo, which can be seen in many of Kenya's parks, but we should also see animals not found in other areas. These include the Grevy's Zebra, which has much narrower and more numerous stripes than the common (Burchell's) zebra. Samburu is also home to the third of Kenya's giraffe species - the Reticulated Giraffe. This is also our best chance to see the blue-legged Somali Ostrich, the long-necked Gerenuk gazelle and the straight-horned Beisa Oryx antelope. Down by the river we hope to see crocodiles and hippos, as well as many beautiful birds. Overnight in SAMBURU GAME LODGE. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner).


Day 05 - Samburu – Sweetwater’s Sanctuary (Chimpanzee Sanctuary)

We drive back south from Samburu to the Equator and the slopes of Mount Kenya. Although situated on the Equator, Mount Kenya is permanently covered in glaciers and snow. Here we stay at the Sweetwaters Game Reserve. This very special 23,000 acre wildlife sanctuary was originally established to protect and breed highly-endangered Black Rhinos. In 1994 the Jane Goodall Institute established the Sweetwater’s Chimpanzee Sanctuary within the game reserve and moved a large group of chimps here from the unstable situation in their native West Africa. This afternoon we have a game drive in the reserve and tour the Chimpanzee Sanctuary. Overnight at SWEETWATERS TENTED CAMP (Lunch, dinner, Bed and Breakfast)

Optional Camel Ride or a Night Game Drive available here


Day 06 - Sweetwaters - Rift Valley Lakes (Lake Nakuru)

This morning we drive across the equator and descend the Nyandarua Escarpment into the Great Rift Valley and visit Thomson Falls. The Valley floor in Kenya is studded with volcanoes and seven lakes. These lakes fluctuate greatly in size according to the quality of the rains during the monsoons each year, sometimes drying up altogether. Arrive in time for lunch. This afternoon we take a game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park often described as the world's biggest ornithological spectacle. This lake is famous for its flocks of over one million Greater and Lesser Flamingoes. The abundance of these birds is due to the alkaline mineral salts in the water, which support vast blooms of the blue-green algae and diatoms on which the flamingoes feed. As well as seeing many large game animals such as zebras, elephants and gazelles, this is one of our best chances of seeing rhinos. These highly endangered animals are the second largest land animals in the world. Lake Nakuru National Park was the first place in Kenya selected as a rhino reserve. Here is one of the few places where we can see Rothschild's giraffes. Overnight at the LAKE NAKURU LODGE. (Lunch, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast).


Day 07 - Lake Nakuru - Lake Naivasha - Masai Mara

After a morning game drive, we leave for the Masai Mara located further south into the Great Rift Valley. The Valley floor in Kenya is studded with volcanoes and seven lakes. These lakes fluctuate greatly in size according to the quality of the rains during the monsoons each year, sometimes drying up altogether. Driving south along the Great Rift Valley we come to Lake Naivasha. Even though this lake is on the floor of the Valley, it is still situated at about 6,200 feet (1,890 metres) above sea level. Naivasha presents a mystery - even though the lake has no apparent outflows, its waters are fresh. The other lakes of the Valley also have only way of losing water, by evaporation, but they are very alkaline. Because it is one of the largest sources of fresh water in Kenya, Lake Naivasha attracts a huge variety of birds in large numbers. It is a bird-watchers' paradise. After lunch, we make our way to Kenya's premier wildlife park - the Masai Mara. This is the northern section of the Serengeti Plain, which is home to the greatest concentration of game animals in the world. Overnight first of 3 nights in the Masai Mara at KEEKOROK LODGE (Lunch, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast).


Day 08 - Masai Mara Game Reserve

The vast, open grasslands of the Serengeti-Mara are home to over 3 million large mammals. These include over 1.4 million wildebeest, which migrate in an enormous, straggling herd each year between the southern part of the Serengeti to the northern part and back again. With them move other herbivores such as gazelles and zebra, also looking for the best grass. Along the way they provide food for big predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs. Here we learn about and see first hand the intricate web of dependency that binds the different species together. Each animal has adapted to its own niche and to the other animals that surround it. Here we see Nature at its most subtle and, sometimes, most cruel as each animal struggles to survive and reproduce. On our morning and afternoon game drives in the Masai Mara we have a very good chance of seeing all the major Plains animals including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, rhino, hyena, cheetah, jackal, warthog and many species of antelope. Overnight second of 3 nights in the Masai Mara at KEEKOROK LODGE (Lunch, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast).


Day 09 - Masai Mara Game Reserve

We continue to explore this miraculous area on our morning and afternoon game drives. This open grassland is home to almost every species of East African wildlife including lions, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, wildebeests, gazelles, and zebras. This is one of the most spectacular sights in the world. Today we also encounter and learn about the Masai, a proud tribal people struggling to preserve their traditions in the face of modernization. At sunset we will visit a section of the Mara River where we hope to see many hippos. Overnight third of the 3 nights in the Masai Mara at KEEKOROK LODGE (Lunch, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast).


Day 10 - Drive Back To Nairobi and Depart

After breakfast, say 'Kwaheri' (a Swahili word for bye) to Masai Mara and leisurely drive back to Nairobi, arriving at around mid-day and in time for lunch at the Nairobi's Rangers Restaurant. Day rooms have been reserved until 1800 hrs for your comfort at The Stanley Hotel. Optional Dinner at the Carnivore Restaurant - time permitting. Later we transfer you to the airport for your home bound/ departure flight having seen Kenya probably for the first time! This marks the end of your Kenya Safari Adventure.

Ashford Tours and Travel Ltd was established in 2001 as an incoming tour company as well as outbound Travel Agent based in Kenya.
Over the past years the company grew by leaps and bounds and today it is one of the leading tour operators in Kenya also offering Air Ticket arrangements to its growing number of clients across the World. Our trademark has all along been efficiency and personalized services to the clients. In order to attain the distinguished brand services, Ashford Travel had to invest substantially in the following areas:

Our main office is based in Twiga Towers, Muranga Road off Moi Avenue in Nairobi. Besides the main office in Nairobi, Ashford Travel maintains a branch office in Mombasa with a fleet of vehicles to cater for our Airport transfers and tours and travel requirements and facilitate. We have an affiliate office in Dar es Salaam to operate tours and travel services in Southern Tanzania, which include the game parks of Selous, Ruaha and Mikumi, and beach holidays on the Indian Ocean coastline. We have our own customer service staff in Zanzibar to personally look after our clients’ needs on the islands. We are maintaining these offices in the key tourist centres simply to ensure personal attention to our guests.

We have Installed Galileo Air Ticket booking systems to facilitate easy and efficient services to our customers inquiring about Air Travel. Our qualified staff will offer the most convenient flight schedule with the best available Air fares. Our staff will also provide information on destinations including visa requirements. Where required, we always deliver Air tickets to our customers offices.

Our offices are equipped with state-of-the-art communication equipments to facilitate contacts with our customers and suppliers. This includes 24 hours internet connection and modern computers. HF radio communication systems are also installed to establish constant contact from vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to base stations, especially while in the bush.

The Company has Increased the size, and quality, of our fleet to over 10 safari vehicles, and 4 saloon vehicles for personalized Airport transfers. We also hire them out to our esteemed customers only. This does away with the problem of sub-contracting vehicles, which inevitably compromises the quality of services.

Ashford Travel Employ the best driver-guides and operations staff with expert knowledge in wildlife and other areas of tourist interest. The driver-guides are continually under training in clients safety, wildlife, general knowledge and foreign languages: English, Japanese, German, and Spanish. Altogether the company has a total of 14 employees and 8 part time guides.

Ashford Travel Maintain the Flying Doctor membership to cover our guests individually for instant rescue and medical evacuation to Nairobi. Client participation fee: US$15 to US$25 from all over Kenya and Northern Tanzania and US$30 to US$50 for Southern & Western Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Ashford Travel is streamlined to operate in all tourist circuits in Kenya which cover wildlife safaris including camping; beach holidays; cultural and historical tours; walking safaris and mountain climbing. We are also marketing out-bound programs especially those combining Kenya with Tanzania and Uganda.

Ashford Travel also introduced camping safaris in 2004. It started with budget camping for a year and then ventured into standard camping in response to a different level of clientele. In 2006 was the introduction of another product of a higher level, semi-luxury camping, again a direct response to the market. All three products, budget, standard, and semi-luxury camping, came to be so popular that we had to establish an independent unit for camping to cater for the expanded operation.

Our safari vehicles are specifically converted for maximum space and comfort. All of them have roof hatches to facilitate good viewing and convenient photography while doing game drives. We have introduced a larger version of 4X4 Land-rover and Land-cruiser, which is wider, longer and more spacious, with 6 window seats in the passenger cabin, panoramic sliding windows, and an open roof, excellent facilities for sight seeing and game viewing.

Ashford Travel is constantly investing in product development, for we know it is in our interest as well as our duty to ensure that all our guests go back home happy and satisfied with the destination Tanzania. Only this way will they be our good ambassadors to others and come back again to visit us.

Ashford Travel is involved in community development, working hand in hand with local communities together with non-profit Organizations, like the Rotary, to help the Kenyan people lead a better life.
