Sally's review for another Bamba Experience tour
5 - Excellent
“Easy way to do the W trek as everything is organised for you.

If doing camping, sleeping bags and matts are provided though this isn't communicated anywhere.
The trek itself is amazing. Hiking Poles are recommended
Views are incredible and worth the hard work.”
Kyle's review for another Bamba Experience tour
4 - Very Good
“My girlfriend and I booked this trip. We had a great time. You see so many of the different islands , the beaches, and get to explore Thailand. If I were to do it again, I would see less islands and spend more time at each. You only get a couple of days at each island, which means a third of your trip you spend travelling. My recommendations would be phucket, phi phi and koi Tao. Also , before you leave make sure to print off all of your tickets, as most excursions and ferry companies don’t accept the mobile version. This was annoying asking each hotel to print this off for us.”
Travel from Nairobi to Amboseli on Day 1 to enjoy a full day of game drives on Day 2. On Day 3 reach Lake Nakuru, where you will enjoy a game drives with views of the National Park's famous pink flamingos. Travel to Masai Mara on Day 4 and enjoy full-day game drives on Day 5. Eat a picnic lunch at the Mara River in the company of crocodiles and hippos. In the evening you'll visit a local Maasai village to learn about the local people and their culture, with traditonal dancing, storytelling by the chief, and a nature walk with a local guide. Return to Nairobi on Day 6, arriving in the afternoon.    
You will be picked up from your Nairobi accommodation at 8:30 am to drive past the scenic Athi Plains and into the bushy country of Amboseli National Park. Arriving in time at your camp/lodge for lunch and thereafter go for evening game drive. Amboseli National Park is a landscape dominated everywhere by the glistening, majestic snowcap of the mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro - a fitting backdrop to the wild region. It is also the region where pastoral Masai and their cattle have lived in harmony with wild creatures for many a century. After lunch, experience an afternoon game drive at the foot of Africa's highest mountain. Dinner and overnight is at the Amboseli camp/lodge located  in the very heart of the Amboseli National Park. 
Option 1: After breakfast proceed for a morning game drive wildlife viewing drive in the park and return back to the camp/lodge around midday for your sumptuous lunch. Relax after lunch to await for an evening game drive at 4:00 pm when the weather cools down and the wildlife is active. Amboseli is famous for its big game – elephants, lions, herds of buffaloes, zebra and wildebeest and its great scenic beauty. The landscape is dominated by Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest peak in Africa) and 'floating’ elephants within the swamps whose permanent waters zip down from the mountain. Later in the evening return back to your camp/lodge for dinner and overnight.

Option 2: After breakfast depart the camp/lodge with a packed lunch for a full day game drive. Stop to enjoy your picnic lunch at the observation hill which on a clear day affords you with views of Kilimanjaro in the distance. Continue with game viewing after lunch and return to the camp/lodge in the evening for dinner and overnight. 
You will depart after an early breakfast by road for the Ornithological paradise of Lake Nakuru National Park which supports a wide ecological diversity of flamingos and other water birds – over 450 bird species have been recorded here. Arrive at around 12:30 pm and begin a game drive en route to your accommodation for check in and lunch. Get settled in and relax until 4:00 pm where you will head on for another game drive and nature walk along the lake shores and return back to your accommodation before sunset.

Lake Nakuru is a shallow alkaline lake famous for its flamingo population estimated to be more than a million hence it is referred to as the 'Birds Paradise’ by bird watchers. Spot elusive wild animals like tree climbing lions, the white and the black rhinos which are endangered species in Kenya, the rare Rothschild Giraffe, Cape buffaloes, waterbucks, gazelles, leopard and primates throughout the park. 
After breakfast depart for a journey south along the floor of the dramatic Great Rift Valley to Masai Mara National Reserve - an extension of Tanzania's Serengeti National Park also known as The 7th Wonder of the World because of the great wildebeest migration, witnessed every year between June and September. Millions of wildebeests and zebra cross the Mara River from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya in search of food and water and it is famous for its wide variety of resident wildlife all year round.  Stop for lunch at Narok Town and arrive to Masai Mara National Reserve in time for an afternoon game drive where you may have a chance of seeing the 'Big Five’, different varieties of birdlife and the best savannah vegetation in the world. This is serene vast country of breath-taking vistas, a panorama of vast rolling plains and rounded hills, of intermittent groves of acacia woodlands and dense thickets of scrub. The Mara River and its tributaries which are margined by luxuriant riverine forest bisect the landscape. The famous Masai tribesmen live within the dispersal area of the game reserve. And in every direction there are seemingly endless herds of game animals. Return to the camp/lodge for dinner and overnight.
Today you will enjoy full day game drives to absorb the beauty and splendor of the Mara. In this country of breathtaking vistas, view its vast assemblages of plains game together with their associated predators. Mara has the largest population of lions to be found in Kenya. Other animals to be seen here include buffalo, black rhino, hippopotamus, leopard, cheetah, zebra, Coke's hartebeest, white-bearded gnu, oribi, warthog and Thomson's and Grant's gazelles. The bird life of Mara is as profuse as its mammalian fauna.

Today you will have a picnic lunch at the Mara River where you can enjoy your box lunch while watching crocodiles and hippos laze around in their natural habitat. This is a great way to take advantage of your time in the park and enjoy seeing the views below and all around you. After lunch continue your game drive in search for more wildlife.

You will be dropped off at the Masai Village at 5:00 pm for an opportunity to visit the Masai people to witness the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. Upon arrival at the village proceed for a nature walk with the Masai naturalist guide, you will get to see herbs that are used as medication among the Masai. Return to the village where a camp fire will be lit, entertainment from both women, children and men of the village follows with a chance for you to join in their dancing. The chief will then give you stories of their culture and tradition, they will show you how the herbs seen during the nature walk are prepared and used. You will also have a glimpse into their homes and social structure, dinner will be served at the village followed by coffee and tea as you leave to return to the camp/lodge for overnight.
Take an early morning game drive into the park and then return to the camp/lodge for a full breakfast. Say goodbye to the Masai Mara Game Reserve as you begin your leisurely return drive back to Nairobi, arriving in the late afternoon. Your trip will come to an end with a drop off at your accommodation.
