Day 1
 
Upon your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met our representative who will drive you into vibrant Nairobi. Kenya’s capital is one of the largest and most influential cities in Africa, an important commercial and financial hub. It is the port of entry for most travelers to Kenya and offers bustling markets, interesting history and numerous attractions. Named after a Maasai watering hole, “enkare nyarobi”, which means “place of cool waters”, Nairobi is known for its leafy streets and parks. The skyline, with towering skyscrapers and imposing architecture also draws one’s attention soon after arriving in the city. Not-to-be-missed are visits to the city’s beautiful Uhuru Park and an informative excursion to the Karen Blixen Museum. Overnight at Fairmont the Norfolk  on a bed and breakfast basis.

Day 2

 
After a delicious breakfast you will be driven to Wilson Airport for your scheduled flight to Lewa Airstrip. You will be met and transferred to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Lying on the edge of the Northern Frontier, the Laikipia Plateau stretches from the slopes of snow-capped Mt Kenya to the rim of the Great Rift Valley. Laikipia boasts one of the largest elephant populations in East Africa and is one of the last strongholds of the endangered black rhino. Despite its scattered mosaic of farms and cattle ranches, it is essentially still a wilderness, a wildlife refuge supporting huge numbers of game. Two rivers, the Ewaso Ng’iro and Ewasa Narok, run through the area, attracting a rich variety of wildlife. Vast open plains in the shadow of Mount Kenya create a tranquil and secluded setting. A wild and romantic haven, Laikipia shelters not only the Big Five but a variety of rare and endangered species, including African wild dog, Grevy’s zebra and the semi-aquatic sitatunga antelope. Sprawling over the Laikipia plains, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a prolific wildlife conservancy that is popular with celebrities, conservationists, writers and photographers. Lewa found recent media attention with stories of a blossoming Royal romance. Underpinning the glamorous magnetism of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a serious mission: a pioneering and pragmatic approach to conservation, founded in the 1970s that has developed into a thriving and globally recognised rhino conservation habitat. Visitors to the conservancy are privy to some of the most spectacular wildlife viewing that Kenya has to offer: lion, leopard and jackal thrive on the rich diversity of prey that inhabits the area and the diverse habitats attract diverse birdlife and rare species such as Beisa oryx and Grevy’s Zebra. Spend two nights enjoying the vast array of safari experiences on offer in Laikipia. Overnight at Lewa Safari Camp  inclusive of accommodation, all meals, game drives, local drinks excluding premium brands and champagne, safari activities, game drives, Lewa airstrip transfers and limited laundry.

Day 3

 
As the sun chases the cool of the Laikipia night from the plains, awaken to friendly call of “Jambo!” from outside your room, and find steaming coffee waiting for you outside. Listen to the quiet swish of long grass against your trousers as the expert walking guide leads you through the quiet hours of the waking wilderness. Tuck in to a delicious late breakfast and plan the day ahead. Perhaps buckle up and let the powerful rotors of a helicopter sweep you up along the picturesque slopes of Mount Kenya. Try out the guidebook Swahili and feel the delight of your guides as they grin and offer gentle corrections. Walk through a Maasai village and touch a culture that has remained intact for hundreds of years. Start up a powerful ATV, or, quad bike, and see things from an entirely different viewpoint. Connect with the hands-on conservation ethos of the conservancies, spend afternoons with rehabilitation programs, tracking and collaring initiatives or community trusts. Bid the sun farewell from a scenic spot, with an icy drink in hand. Dine out under the stars and perhaps opt to sleep out in a private lightweight camp with nothing but the African night above and around you. Overnight at Lewa Safari Camp inclusive of accommodation, all meals, game drives, local drinks excluding premium brands and champagne, safari activities, game drives, Lewa airstrip transfers and limited laundry.

Day 4

 
After a wholesome breakfast you will be driven back to the airstrip for your scheduled flight to the Masai Mara. From the airstrip, you’ll embark on a game drive en route to your home for the next few nights. The Masai Mara is Kenya’s most renowned game park, situated in the northern extension of the Serengeti. Its legendary Great Migration, of over two million wildebeest and other antelope, has been described as one of nature’s greatest wildlife spectacles – and an experience every safari enthusiast should witness at least once in their lifetime. Game viewing in this celebrated park is wonderful throughout the year, with virtually guaranteed sightings of the Big Five. The park takes its name from the Mara River, which flows through the reserve, and the Masai people, a tribe whose red dress and proud demeanor have ensured they are probably Kenya’s best-known (and most-photographed) people. The Masai Mara runs along the country’s south-west border, just across from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. This gigantic ecosystem is shared by the two countries and protected with a combination of national reserves and community-run conservation areas. Following the rains, the vast herds arrive from Tanzania sometime between August and November each year. The multitudes of snorting and cavorting animals, the heart-stopping tension of the river crossings and the sinister patience of the predators that follow the herd all combine to form an epic life-and-death saga that plays out beneath Kenya’s vast skies. The reserves are not fenced, meaning that game moves freely between the reserves and the conservancies, creating one vast wildlife area. During winter (June to September) and the migration months, the Mara becomes very busy and wildlife sightings become quite active, with vehicles gathering for a lion kill or potential river crossing. During the quieter summer months and the green season (when there are heavy rains, particularly between March and June), the reserve is much quieter and visitors feel as though they have the Mara to themselves. Although the big herds of the Great Migration have moved off by this time, the abundant resident game can still be seen and wildlife sightings still rival anywhere in the world. Overnight at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp  inclusive of meals,  tea and coffee, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, scheduled activities, Kichwa airstrip transfers and emergency medical evacuation insurance.

Day 5

 
Welcome to the plains of the famed Mara, dotted with iconic umbrella thorn trees and watched over by tall Maasai in their distinctive red clothing. Perch comfortably on the high seat of the 4×4 as the guide interprets each sighting of the abundant resident game. Gape in astonishment at the endless, seething mass of the great migration and feel your pulse race during the madcap rush of a river crossing. Spend endless happy hours trying to fit it all into a photograph. Follow an expert walking guide and listen as your footsteps rustle softly through the grass. Mumble a polite “Jambo” and shake hands with a beaming Maasai Moran before he shows you around his village. Examine the exquisite craftsmanship of a beaded necklace just perfect to take home. Savour the thrill of a unique night-drive sighting, framed in the glowing beam of the spotlight. Rise before the sun then rise to meet it on the silent, effortless ascent of a hot-air balloon. Watch as the dawn turns the plains to gold and the expert pilot drifts the balloon smoothly over inquisitive game and winding watercourses. Lift your face to the last rays of the setting sun, feel the warmth of the cooling engine at your back and sip a refreshing sundowner as the sun sets on another full day in Africa. Overnight at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp – meals,  tea and coffee, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers , scheduled activities, Kichwa airstrip transfers and emergency medical evacuation insurance.
