  Day 1 Nairobi
You will be met by an Origins Safaris representative and transferred to your hotel. Optional visit to the National Museum of Kenya: its fascinating bird collection and formidable array of fossils and other exhibits and artifacts make the museum well worth a visit.

Day 2 Mount Kenya
Today you set off on safari after a hearty breakfast for the drive to the foothills of Mt Kenya. You arrive in time for lunch followed by an afternoon's birdwalk through the riverine forests.
1 overnight Mountain Lodge (FB)

Day 3 Naro Moru
An early breakfast is followed by a morning drive across the lush afro-alpine moorlands to Naro Moru at the base of Mt Kenya, a popular starting point for climbers and trail hikers. It is set in a lush landscape and the area attracts many bird species.
1 overnight at Naro Moru River Lodge (FB)

Days 4, 5 Lake Nakuru National Park
After an excellent breakfast you set off 'downhill' towards the Rift Valley floor and the famous Lake Nakuru. Of the world population of 5 million flamingos, 3 million thrive on The Great Rift Valley soda lakes. On our second day we drive across to the far end of Lake Nakuru National Park with a picnic lunch for a full day’s uninterrupted birding in this fascinating eco-system, renowned for its birdlife and as one of Kenya’s most successful Rhino Sanctuaries.
2 overnights Lake Nakuru Lodge (FB)

Days 6, 7 Lakes Baringo & Bogoria
We leave after an early breakfast for a drive through the Great Rift Valley to Lake Baringo. The walks here take you through amazing volcanic landscapes and a rich habitat full of birdlife. On your second day you take the road for a short trip to spend the day viewing the bird species and other wildlife which frequents the alkaline lake and hot springs of Lake Bogoria.
2 overnights Lake Baringo Club (FB)

Days 8-10 Kakamega Rainforest
We leave after an early breakfast for a full day’s scenic drive over the Tugen Hills, through the Kerio Valley and Serikwa plateau and finally onto Kakamega Forest. We stay at Rondo Retreat just inside the Forest. Originally a retreat for missionaries, this delightful haven is now open to other visitors: the peaceful gardens are an ornithologist's dream, alive with different species of birds. We spend our days exploring Kakamega Forest National Reserve.
3 overnights Rondo Retreat (FB)

Days 11-13 Maasai Mara
