This extraordinary itinerary allows you to spend 10 days in some of Kenya’s most remarkable areas. Start your adventure in a private conservancy that is home to a wide variety of wildlife. Lewa Wilderness Conservancy is a breath-taking, 65 000-acre private conservancy with the highest number of rare Grevy’s zebra on earth. This is a photographer’s paradise and offers spectacular sightings of lion, leopard and jackal as well as 440 bird species, including Verreaux’s eagle owl with its distinct pink eyelids. You will be staying at the award-winning Lewa Safari Camp, which offers exhilarating activities like game drives, guided walks, horse riding and even camel trekking.
You then move to a truly remote and private camp in a beautiful forest glade on the upper slopes of the Mathews Mountains in Kenya’s Laikipia district in the more arid north. The area is known for its sensational northern white rhino and black rhino sightings. Leisurely explore gorgeous forest trails cut by elephant, bushbuck and buffalo under the watchful eyes of expert Samburu guides from Kitich Camp who share their extensive knowledge of the indigenous trees, flowers, birds and butterflies.
Spend your last few days at Elephant Pepper Camp, a traditional safari camp with sweeping views of the Masai Mara plains. The Mara is home to very large numbers of big cats (including cheetah) and elephant, and boast some of the most beautiful scenery in East Africa. Enjoy daily game drives and guided bush walks in the private Mara North Conservancy where the concentration of game is generally even higher than in the Masai Mara National Reserve.
