Essential Kenya Details


Day 1: Nairobi to Mount Kenya

Arriving at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by a representative and introduced to your dedicated driver/guide. Heading north of Nairobi, you will drive through the green valleys that skirt the foothills of Mount Kenya before winding up her forested slopes to arrive in the private wilderness that surrounds the Mount Kenya Safari Club. Lunch will be served at the Club while in the afternoon you are free to relax.

One of the world’s highest Nati onal Parks, Mount Kenya is an extinct volcano some three and a half million years old, which sits astride the equator, and is uniquely capped with tropical ice. Kenya’s highest mountain, an Afro-Alpine wildlife stronghold, and the nation’s namesake, Mount Kenya is a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site and the sacred abode of Ngai, the God of the Kikuyu people.

Day 2: Samburu National Reserve

After breakfast, continue your journey north to the Samburu National Reserve arriving in time for a relaxed lunch at Samburu Intrepids. In the afternoon, take your first game drive through this remote, arid and beautiful reserve.

Gloriously dramatic, the 104 square kilometers of Samburu feature rocky battlements, tumbling scarps, palm-fringed rivers and mile upon mile of dry thorn scrub, which provides sanctuary for an exclusive range of essentially northern wildlife.

Day 3: Full Day in Samburu

Take an early-morning game drive: the best time to view the animals, which tend to be more active in the cool of the day. Return to camp for a full English breakfast and a little relaxation before lunch. In the afternoon explore another area of this exce ptionally varied reserve before returning to camp for dinner.

Day 4: Masai Mara National Reserve

After breakfast in camp, drive to Samburu Airstrip for your flight to the Masai Mara National Reserve. Upon arrival at the airstrip, you will be met by your driver guide who will take you on your first game drive in this famous reserve, arriving at your luxury tented camp, Mara Intrepids in time for lunch. In the cool of the afternoon take another game-drive amid the rolling savannah of the Mara, which offers the ideal hunting ground for Kenya’s ‘big cats’ and hosting Kenya’s largest population of lions.

Days 5 and 6: Full Day in the Mara

With two full days on safari in the magnificent Mara, with morning and afternoon game drives, you have ample time to discover all that this globally famous wilderness has to offer.

Situated in southwest Kenya and is part of the northern section of the Serengeti National Park, the park is famous for the abundance of the big cats, the Great Wildebeest Migration, and the Maasai people. A pristine wilderness of haunting beauty, it promises its visitors a profusion of wildlife, prolific bird life and the unprecedented opportunity of catching up with all the members of the ‘Big Five’ in one morning.

Day 7: Departure

After breakfast in camp, enjoy a short game drive to the airstrip where you will connect with your return flight to Nairobi and your onward connection home.
