Safari Itinerary
Day 1

Arrival

Your adventure begins at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, in Nairobi and ends at Mombasa International Airport, in Mombasa.

Upon your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met by a member from our team who will drive you to the beautiful Holiday Inn Nairobi.

Kenya’s capital is one of the largest and most influential cities in Africa, an important commercial and financial regional hub. It is the port of entry for most travellers 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.

Spend one night at the Holiday Inn Nairobi. Accommodation is in a room with en-suite bathroom. Your stay includes breakfast.

Day 2 - 3

Laikipia Plateau

After a wholesome breakfast you will be driven to Wilson Airport for your scheduled flight to Loisaba airstrip. From the airstrip, you’ll embark on your first game drive to Mutamaiyu House.

The eastern escarpment of the Rift Valley known as the Laikipia Plateau is divided into a patchwork of enormous ranches. Over the years with cooperation from their owners, these farms were transformed into game reserves and now contain some of the most exclusive lodges in the remotest parts of Kenya. Laikipia Wildlife Forum was founded and an enormous wildlife stronghold was born. The Forum hopes that Laikipia will increasingly be seen as Kenya's foremost exclusive destination due to the select nature of its lodges, the important ecosystem with large wildlife populations and the fact that the plateau is home to more endangered species than anywhere else in East Africa.

Spend two nights at Mutamaiyu House. Accommodation is in a charming cottage with a lovely en-suite bathroom. Your stay includes three meals daily and daily activities.

Adventures include twice-daily game drives in the Mugie Wildlife Conservancy (including in the rhino sanctuary), bush sundowners, guided walks, camel walks, fishing and cultural visits to the Mugie school and Gala graves.

Insider’s Tips:

  • Immerse yourself in Kenyan culture. Chat to your hosts about the cultural excursion where you are introduced to the Pokot and Samburu traditional ways of life.
  • Ask your hosts about their wonderful day trips to Roof of the World - (Porro-Maralal).
Day 4 - 5

Lake Naivasha

After a mouth-watering breakfast you will be driven back to the airstrip for your scheduled flight to Loldia Airstrip. Upon landing you will embark on a short game drive to your choice of either Kiangazi House or Chui Lodge.

Lake Naivasha is a beautiful freshwater lake, fringed by thick papyrus. The lake is almost 13kms across, but its waters are shallow with an average depth of five metres. Lake area varies greatly according to rainfall, with an average range between 114 and 991 sq kms. At the beginning of the 20th Century, Naivasha completely dried up and effectively disappeared. The resulting open land was farmed, until heavy rains a few years later caused the lake to return to existence, swallowing up the newly established estates.

Option 1: Spend two nights at Kiangazi House. Accommodation is in a luxurious cottage with an en-suite bathroom. Your stay includes three meals daily and daily activities.

Adventures include twice-daily game drives, including exhilarating game drives in Hell's Gate National Park, guided bush walks, a visit to the spectacular Oserian Flower Farm, boat cruises and fishing on Lake Naivasha, bush breakfast and sundowners.

Insider’s Tips:

  • Take in the sweet aroma of fresh roses, which comes straight from the owner’s private flower farm.
  • Sip on an ice-cold gin and tonic and enjoy the absolutely stunning view over the lake while you relax in the sparkling swimming pool.
  • Take an early morning boat trip on the lake and watch the curious antics of the resident hippo family.

Option 2: Spend two nights at Chui Lodge. Accommodation is in a spacious cottage with a lovely en-suite bathroom. Your stay includes three meals daily and daily activities.

Adventures include day and night game drives, including exhilarating game drives in Hell's Gate National Park, guided bush walks, visit to breathtaking Oserian Flower Farm, boat trips & fishing on Lake Naivasha, bush breakfast and sundowners.

Insider’s Tips:

  • Sip on your favorite sundowner in the beautiful Sanctuary and (if you’re lucky) watch as the resident male ostrich struts his stuff during his mating dance.
  • Tuck into a lip-smacking bush breakfast on the lakeshore and watch as resident wildlife make their way to the water’s edge to slake their thirsts.
Day 6 - 8

Maasai Mara

After tantalising breakfast you will be driven back to the airstrip where you will board your scheduled flight to Kichwa Airstrip. Upon your arrival you will be met by a member from ourteam who will drive you to Kichwa Tembo Maasai Mara Tented Camp.

The Maasai 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 all round 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 Maasai people, a tribe whose red dress and proud demeanour have ensured they are probably Kenya’s best-known (and most-photographed) people.

Spend three nights at Kichwa Tembo Maasai Mara Tented Camp. Accommodation is in a luxury, Hemingway-style safari tent with a spacious en-suite bathroom. Your stay includes three meals daily, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance and daily lodge activities.

Adventures include twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, birdwatching and daily lectures by a Masaai naturalist.

Optional excursions at an additional cost include night game drives on the lodge’s private concession, guided walking trails up and along the Oloololo escarpment, a Maasai community visit, sundowners at a location with spectacular views across the Mara and hot air ballooning.

Insider’s Tips:

  • Join a Maasai warrior under a tree and be spellbound by his wonderful tales of the Maasai culture.
  • Be sure to keep your camera on hand to capture the playful antics of the Blue and Copper-tail monkeys that visit the forest around Kichwa Tembo. Nowhere else in the Mara will you see both species co-existing.
  • If you’re into all things decadent then you have to try the amazing Kichwa Tembo Hot Chocolate - it will really make your morning!
Day 9 - 11

Mombasa

Today, after a delectable breakfast feast you will be driven to the airstrip for your scheduled flight to Ukunda airstrip, where you will be met by a representative from Tijara Beach, who will drive you to the lodge.

The coastal city of Mombasa is one of Africa’s major tourist destinations and has some of the best beaches in the world. Mombasa is Kenya’s second largest city, located on Kenya’s Eastern coastline bordering the Indian Ocean. The city has also become popular for its diverse marine life, game park safaris, world-class hotels and friendly people. Mombasa undoubtedly has one of the best white sandy beaches in Africa. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean cater to all types of tourists: those looking for a quiet swim, a place for kids to play, deep-sea fishing and water sports activities such as scuba diving and sailing. When coupled with its large selection of beachfront hotels, Mombasa becomes an ideal place for a vacation.

Spend three nights at Tijara Beach. Accommodation is in a cottage with an en-suite bathroom. Your stay includes three meals daily and daily activities.

Adventures include snorkelling and scuba diving around a pristine reef, beach and cave walks.

Insider’s Tips:

  • Take gentle stroll to the secluded beach and watch the fishermen pull in their catch of the day.
  • Indulge in a soothing massage on the sundeck and take in the breathtaking ocean views.
  • Venture to a nearby cave, situated on the beach - legend has it that it was once used during the time of slave trading.
