Overview

Kenya is the home of the Safari. The lure of Kenya has always been the same, the sheer variety of landscape, wildlife, human cultures and experience. For over a hundred years Kenya has attracted adventurers and romantics from all over the globe. This magical land has been the setting of some of history’s greatest adventure stories. This is the home of Out of Africa, a place where setting out on an adventure into the wilderness became an age-old tradition.

The spirit of the Safari lives on today.

 

Nakuru National Park, scenic Lake Nakuru is Kenya’s most popular national park. The park’s main feature is a large, shallow lake supporting great birdlife, including big flocks of pelicans and variable flocks of flamingos. Black and white rhino were re-introduced in the 1990s and have bred to healthy populations. White rhinos are usually easy to see on the lakeshore.

Rothschild giraffe, buffalo and hippo are numerous as well. Lucky visitors might see lions, which occasionally climb trees. Leopards are present, but not often encountered.

Ol Pejeta conservancy is one of the prime sanctuaries of Laikipia Plateau and all the Big Five are present. Its highlights include the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa; a population of southern white rhino; a refuge for the last two northern white rhino left in the world; and Sweetwater’s Chimpanzee Sanctuary, housing orphaned and abandoned chimpanzees.

Please note.

Traveling in remote locations can present challenges that may require slight changes to the itinerary. We will always try to run the tour as the initial itinerary.

It is our intention for you to have the best possible experience. We will try to notify you of any changes as soon as we are made aware of them.

DAY 5 - MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

After breakfast we will start our scenic drive toward the world famous Masai Mara National Reserve. We will arrive at the camp with enough time to check in at your tent before lunch. This camp is positioned to blend unobtrusively into the surrounding vegetation and has an authentic safari feel of days gone by. When the heat starts to die down you will set off on your first game drive in search of lions, leopards, Zebras, cheetahs and many other animals, but fear not…the Mara always delivers!!

After a productive search for game, Sundowners shall be enjoyed whenever and wherever the end of the day meets us – a daily chance to enjoy the vast plains of the Masai Mara – a breathtaking and unbeatable way to finish the day! On return to camp there will be hot showers and a sumptuous dinner waiting at the candle lit mess tent.

After a sumptuous dinner sit around the campfire and enjoy the starry African night and once safely escorted to your tent by your Masai Warrior, you will be lulled asleep to the sound of grazing Hippo and roaring lion.

DAY 6 & 7 - MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

We will spend the next 2 days exploring the Sand River and the Talek area is two of the richest predator areas of the Mara. We will focus on the big cats, including the Black rock pride, the Marsh pride, made famous by the BBC’s series, “Big Cat Diary”, the double cross pride, and the Rekero pride, which is quickly becoming as powerful as the Marsh pride. These locations are also known for cheetah and leopards, but we will probably see elephants, hippos, Masai giraffes, common zebras, gnu, impalas, Thompson’s and grant’s gazelles, topi, hartebeest, black-backed jackals, spotted hyenas and more, as the Mara is one of the lushest reserves in Africa. On past safaris we have photographed black rhino in this area.

We will also be closer to the Mara River; your experienced driver and guide will be monitoring the migrating herds of the wildebeest, and as soon as we see a sign of a possible river crossing, we will drive towards the river in hopes of capturing a large crossing. The adrenaline starts pumping when you see the herds line up and march towards the river, gathering along the banks in mass. The suspense begins as you watch the first wildebeest, zebra, or Eland put in a hoof to test the waters. The drama unfolds as they are spooked, and the mass herd runs back, leaving a thick cloud of dust, or they plunge into the croc infested waters in a mass stampede, risking injury or death, to reach the other side. In the late evening we will sit around the campfire as we excitedly share the events of that day. After a scrumptious diner, you will be escorted to your canvas tents.
