 8 Days, 7 Nights Detailed Itinerary for Cheap Holiday Destinations in Kenya

You can go for a cheap safari in Kenya if you have a week or so in the country and end up spending the minimum. These are better safaris than a day trip to Kenya as you get to explore more.

Day 1: Airport Pick Up, Transfer to Masai Mara, & Afternoon Game Drive

Your designated tour guide will pick you up upon arrival at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. We recommend you book an international flight that lands in the country by 4:00 am so you can start the safari immediately.

The safari guide will brief you about the 3-day cheap Masai Mara safari packages to see the start of your 8 Days Safari in Kenya. He will then welcome you to your exclusive safari van and start the road trip to Masai Mara.  Our vans are comfortable, and the guide will stop for photo-ops along the way.

One such stop is the great rift valley viewpoint. The other one is Narok town, where you can do the final shopping before reaching the jungle. You should arrive at Masai Mara at around noon, head straight to the camp for check-in, take lunch, and relax.

Seeing as it’s a private safari for two, you will not need to rely on the resort’s planned drives, so you can set off at 3 pm to see the sun setting in the savanna while enjoying a game drive. If you are not up to a game drive, we organize guided evening walks in the wild that start at the camp to the nearby river.

Day 2: Full-Day Game Drive at Masai Mara National Reserve with Packed Lunch

You are relaxed and have taken in your new routine, so it’s time for your first-morning game drive. Drives start at 5.45 am to ensure that you are out in time to see the animals going out to hunt and graze.

On this second day of your cheap Kenya Safari tours, the hotel will pack a picnic lunch, so you don’t have to come back to the camp for lunch, extending the drive for as many as six hours. You can also break the game drives into two sections – morning and evening if you so wish.

Animals you’re likely to see include lions, cheetahs, elephants, buffaloes, antelopes, hyenas, various birds, giraffes, warthog, hippos, crocodiles, wildebeests, and zebras, among others.

Day 3: Optional Hot Air Balloon Safari/Morning Game Drive, Maasai Village, and Transfer to Nakuru

You can start the day with a morning game drive (IF STAYING INSIDE THE RESEREV). This provides you with the chance to see some of the animals you might have missed the previous days. An alternative is to begin the day with a hot air balloon ride.

A hot air balloon safari is another great way to see animals in their natural habitat; let us know if you would like to indulge in this exhilarating adventure during your cheap safari holiday. It is a great experience only rivaled by Kenya Helicopter Safari Tours.

Breakfast is served in the bush unless the weather disallows it when booking a hot air balloon safari. It is accompanied by champagne. From here, the safari guide will take you for the final game drive as he heads to a Maasai village.

You will interact with this community before starting the journey to Lake Nakuru. The distance from Masai Mara to Lake Nakuru is about 290 km, a 5-hour trip in our comfortable van. You will be in your accommodation at Nakuru by early evening.

Day 4: Full-Day Game Drive at Lake Nakuru National Park with Packed Lunch

Your cheap Kenya safari package will see you carry packed lunch from the hotel and head to Lake Nakuru National Park for a full-day game drive. Lake Nakuru used to be a bird sanctuary, thanks to the millions of lesser and great flamingoes that adorn the lake’s shores.

The national park doubles up as a rhino sanctuary for endangered white and black rhinos. The day starts at 6:oo am with coffee and snacks before heading out for a morning game drive. This park is home to rare tree-climbing lions, leopards, buffalos, giraffes, hyenas, gazelles, baboons, and monkeys.

The morning game drive will soon turn into a mid-morning, noon, and afternoon game drive. Our professional safari guide will leave no stone unturned today.

Day 5: Transfer to JKIA, Local Flight to Diani, & Spend Time in Diani

The journey starts at 9:00 am after you have had breakfast. The drive from Nakuru to Nairobi only takes 2.5 hours so you will head straight to the airport for your 12.20 pm flight.  It only takes 45 minutes to get to Diani Beach by air.

You will land at Ukunda Airstrip, where our hotel team will meet you and take you to the resort. You should be in your room in time for lunch.

Day 6 – 7: Spend Time in Diani Beach, Hotel, or Optional Activities

After being in the wild for five days, you could use some time by the beach. Diani beach has been the leading beach in Africa for a while, and you can engage in many activities at an additional cost.
