Day by day itinerary
Day 1- 3 Samburu Game Reserve
Begin your safari vacation from Wilson Airport, Nairobi, where you board your flight to Samburu, a semi-desert region in the remote frontier district.
Melting waters of Mount Kenya feed rivers which support a surprising array of wildlife. This region is known for its elephants and the endangered Grevy's zebra. Spend the next couple of days discovering the wildlife on game drives and guided walks. Stay in the Luxury Saruni Samburu safari camp and enjoy attentive service and friendly hospitality.
Delve into the fascinating culture of the Samburu people during a cultural visit to a traditional homestead.
Stay: Saruni Samburu
Day 4-6 Masai Mara Game Reserve
Continue your journey with a flight to a bush airstrip in the Masai Mara. Here you will spend the next 3 nights at Mara Plains camp.
Take some time exploring one of Africa's iconic safari destinations where you can see the great migration and the many predators that feed on this magnificent spectacle. Go on guided game drives, led by Maasai Warriors or really experience the bush on foot through an interpretive bush walk.
Stop off for sundowners and watch the colours of the sky change as the sun sets. Then discover the region's nocturnal animals such as a leopard, hyena and lion on the prowl during a night game drive before returning to Mara Plains Camp.
Optional activities include a visit to a traditional Maasai homestead or taking to the sky with a hot air balloon safari, which is truly one of the most tranquil wildlife experiences.
Stay: Mara Plains Camp
Day 7-9 Chyulu Hills, Tsavo West National Park
On the morning of day 7, you will fly on your chartered flight to the Chyulu Hills in the Tsavo West National Park. Track elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino under the guidance of an expert guide.
On a game drive, you can visit the Mzima Springs, whose source is from a natural reservoir under the Chyulu Hills and are crystal clear, affording some of the best Hippo watching in Kenya.
You can go horse riding, novice to professional, or mountain biking or even hiking here. There is an open air hide for some excellent game viewing and even sleep-outs on private “star beds” for the more adventurous.
Stay: OL Donyo Wuas
Day 10: Depart, Nairobi
There may be time for one last early morning game drive followed by breakfast back at your Kenyan luxury camp before boarding a flight to Nairobi's Wilson Airport, for your onward travel arrangements.
