This Kenya fly-in safari is perfect for travellers on time constraints who want to see and experience as much of the country as possible in just over a week. Flying between destinations saves you long road transfers, giving you more time on safari. You’ll also stay at some of Kenya’s finest eco-lodges, leaving a minimal footprint during your safari.
Kick off your 10-day itinerary in Kenya’s ‘land of giants’, Amboseli National Park. Not only is it home to East Africa’s biggest elephant herds, but Amboseli also offers the best vantage points to see Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. You’ll stay at an elegant tented camp in a private conservancy bordering the national park, where you’ll enjoy thrilling game drives, fascinating nature walks, scenic sundowners, and delicious bush meals.
Next stop: Laikipia, Kenya’s best-kept secret. This alluring, wide-open landscape is a panoramic patchwork of wildlife reserves, community-run conservancies, and tribal land where travellers can break away from traditional safari activities. Leave the game drive vehicle behind for extraordinary experiences like camelback safaris and nature walks with Samburu guides, and unforgettable sleep-outs beneath a boundless blanket of stars.
Then get whisked off to one of the world’s most renowned wildlife destinations, the Masai Mara. Here you’ll stay at a secluded camp in a quiet part of the national reserve, set on the banks of the Sand River. The camp is located directly on the annual Wildebeest Migration route, offering guests grandstand views of the herds crossing the Sand River. Spend your last few days in Kenya on game drives to see the Mara’s plethora of wildlife like elephant, giraffe, buffalo and the Mara's famous big cats (lion, leopard and cheetah).
