2 nights

Route

Day 1

You will be picked up from your hotel early in the morning and the journey continues via Mombasa towards Nairobi to the entrance gate of the first national park.

After a rest, the Tsavo East adventure begins! Red earth, natural paths, bush savannah and the first wild animals give the impression of wild Africa.

The first game drive gives you the real safari feeling! You will have lunch at the Ashnil Aruba Lodge. This is where you settle in and take your midday rest during the hottest time of the day. 

After tea time there is a second big tour through the national park. You will explore the beauty of nature and its wildlife by jeep until dusk and end the evening full of good impressions with dinner in your classic lodge.

We go on an early morning stalk, as the early hour is the active time of the big cats. We return for breakfast, check out and our route leads 52 km to the next destination, the Tsavo West National Park.

The park is also very scenic; dense vegetation and green hills characterize the picture. Wild animals find plenty of hiding places, so every game drive becomes a surprise tour and you need a little bit of safari luck.

Until midday you cruise across the park in search of photo opportunities. Afterwards, check in at the Severin Safari Camp, enjoy a tasty lunch and relax a bit in the beautiful complex.

After afternoon tea, the next game viewing trip starts to the Mzima Springs lake with hippos and crocodiles in a beautiful natural idyll.

You are sure to encounter animals in the wild along the way, just keep an eye out! A great animal encounter can happen at any time!

At dusk the path leads back to the camp, you refresh yourself, enjoy an excellent dinner and end the eventful day relaxing under the canopy of stars.

African nights in nature are magical!

We set off after breakfast and drive the approximately 94 kilometer route to Amboseli National Park. This drive takes you through the Chyulu Hills and Masailand. If you wish, you can make a short stop at the Sheitani lava field.

The Amboseli National Park presents a completely different landscape: huge herds of elephants with their offspring leisurely move through the flat, wide plains. Enjoy the land at the foot of Kilimanjaro and feel the magic!
You will go on an exciting game viewing drive until lunchtime and then check into your accommodation, Ol Tukai Lodge.

Here you can spend your lunch break with lunch, a refreshment in the pool and simply feel good!

The afternoon game drive takes you in front of the backdrop of the most popular photo motif, Mount Kilimanjaro!

In the evening we return to the lodge and spend another evening in an atmospheric atmosphere with dinner and candlelight.

Today we head 220 km further to Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley.

Water birds of all kinds find their paradise here. Pelicans, herons, spotted eagles, geese and ducks populate the lake.

You can book a boat tour, admire the beautiful scenery on the water and sail among groups of hippos. A very special experience!

Wildebeests and impalas graze on the banks. Private wildlife corridors allow wildlife to come to the lake to drink in the dry season.

After a good breakfast, you will drive to the world-famous Maasai Mara, Kenya's best-known and most visited nature reserve. The 1.540 km² nature reserve forms a shared ecosystem with the Serengeti in Tanzania. The annual seasonal migration of an estimated 2 million ungulates, especially wildebeests, gazelles and zebras, fascinates every visitor.

The Maasai Mara contains different natural habitats for the native fauna: the vast plains covered with tall red grass and scattered acacias, rolling hills covered with short grass, rocky inselbergs, small forest areas, extensive marshlands, wetlands and of course the mighty Mara River with its riparian forests.

Game drives in the Mara are carried out with vehicles and local drivers from the camp!

You will arrive at your tent camp for lunch. After the lunch break, you set off on an extensive game drive until dusk.

In the evening, listen to the sounds of the African night around the campfire in front of the restaurant and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere with a drink and conversation about the day's experiences in the Maasai Mara. The African wilderness is very close here!

Game drives in the Maasai Mara

This entire day is available for extensive game drives in the natural paradise. You will experience incredible animal encounters and get beautiful photo opportunities up close in front of the camera lens. All the animals in Africa seem to meet here!

Return to camp for lunch and an evening dinner in the wilderness.

On the last day of the safari, after a hearty breakfast in the camp, we start the last game drive on the way to continue our journey to Nairobi. You will fly from Nairobi back to Mombasa, where we will be waiting for you and taking you to your accommodation on the coast.

You can optionally book a return flight directly Masai Mara – Ukunda (surcharge €360 per person)

Experience all the beauty of Kenya! A week of pure Africa!

The safari in the Maasai Mara was from December 04.12th. until December 07.12.2023th, XNUMX fantastic! Everything worked out perfectly. The Oloshaiki Camp is wonderful and has an idyllic location right on the river. You are looked after very attentively and the food tastes great. All game drives were great. My tour guide James was great. He knows the best places for unforgettable animal observations. A special highlight was the balloon ride. I can highly recommend this safari. I experienced pure holiday happiness. Thank you thank you thank you !!!

It's been a few years since we went on a safari with DM Tours, but nonetheless it was a very nice time, we felt very safe and in good hands from the first minute. The driver (ranger) was very friendly and was able to answer all of our questions. On the evening of the safari tour there was a bottle of champagne on a mountain with the backdrop of Kilimanjaro 🥂 at sunset there were tears in our eyes 🌞🥲 It was an unforgettable time. We will book a safari with DM Tours again next year. We're already looking forward to it.

I had the pleasure of being able to drive the elephant tour through Tsavo East, Tsavo West, Amboseli, Naiwasha and Maasai Mara for 7 days in November. It was a 4-seater jeep with the possibility of opening the roof, a very nice and German-speaking guide (Katana), 3 very great "passengers" and a lot of wonderful moments 😀 I am still totally inspired and can recommend it without exception. The contact with the office (Nadine and Aaron) was also great and I always felt well supported and looked after. In any case, I'll repeat the tour a few more times in the next few years 😀 You can't put the impressions into words or photos, you have to experience them... Thank you very much for this wonderful time and the unforgettable moments!!

We (3 adults) did a two-day safari - Tsavo East / Ashnil Aruba Lodge - in December 2023. Dreams become reality here. Our guide James was able to talk to us in German and English. He introduced us to the wildlife and answered many more questions about Kenya. Our driver George always took us safely to the best places so that we could observe giraffes, elephants, lions, zebras... up close and in peace. Thank you so much.

For us it was an unforgettable safari. Especially because of our driver Peterson. The bosses Aaron and Nicole were very nice and even let us use their charcoal tablets. A mega tour with great support. We can only recommend it.

We had a wonderful safari with an overnight stay at Ashnil Lodge. Our driver George listened to our wishes and we were able to spend a lot of time on the game drive. 🤗 We even got a bottle of 🍾 sparkling wine 🥂 at sunset 🌇. It was a great experience. We would book there again. Aaron put together this tour for us according to our wishes. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. We just needed less food and wanted to spend more time outside in the jeep. 😆 The Jeep is in very good condition - clean and well maintained. Only tours for 4 or 2 people are offered, which is very pleasant. There was enough drinking water in the jeep and fancy aluminum bottles that we were allowed to keep as souvenirs.

Four of us went on a safari with our guide for 2023 days in October 7. In this far too short week we visited the Tsavo East and West National Parks, Amboseli and the Masai Mara. Thousands of impressions have remained with us and continue to inspire us even weeks after the safari. The organization by the DM-Tours team was first-class. Starting with the punctual pick-up from the hotel by our super guide Katana, through to the lodges and the return transport by plane and private bus. Everything worked perfectly and left nothing to be desired! We were more than satisfied! The lodges Ashnil Aruba, Ol Tukai, Salewa as well as the server and Olosahki camp were simply top. They were very well maintained and clean, the staff was extremely friendly and the food was always very good. We always felt completely at home! The highlight was our guide Katana with his jeep. His driving skills on the "corrugated iron" pistes and cross-country routes are excellent and his ability to spot even the smallest wild animals parallel to the piste is incredible! His good German also made it a lot easier when explaining about the country, the people and the animals. In the 7 days and a good 2000km in the jeep, a little friendship developed! We really hope to be able to go on a tour with him again... Big compliments to Nadine, Aaron (Denis) and the whole team, who we had the opportunity to get to know in person: you're really doing a great job! Everything, even outside of the actual tour responsibility, runs courteously, smoothly and quickly - thank you very much for that too, you are absolutely recommended! Our vacation planning now includes Kenya again!! We look forward to seeing you again! Birgit and Matthias

We already corresponded with DM Tours & Safari before our vacation and booked a safari. Everything worked out great. We received brochures and a packing list in advance, which made our preparation a lot easier. During our safari the driver explained and showed us a lot. He had spotted animals from a long distance and was able to give us a lot of information about them. At sunset there was champagne to end the day, while lions slept next door. The next day we stalked the Taita Hills area and saw even more animal species. At the end of the safari, our driver offered to visit a Masai village. We accepted the offer and it ended up being an absolute highlight. We had an unforgettable safari. Thank you very much, we will remember you.
