Days 1-2: Prepare for your safari adventure in Nairobi National Park | 1 Night

Up arrow
Nairobi, Kenya

Jambo, karibu Kenya! The start of your African adventure begins after you’re picked up and transferred to your humble abode for the night, just 30 minutes away from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Your stop-over this evening is Nairobi Tented Camp. The first of its kind in the area, the upscale camp is located in the heart of Nairobi National Park and is the perfect lead-in to ready you for 10 days of safari exploits. Squeeze in your first game drive of the trip while here or spend some time in nature and savour the feeling of being in the thick of the African wilderness.

Days 2-4: Visit a Maasai village in the Selenkay Conservancy | 2 Nights

Up arrow
Amboseli National Park, Kenya

Awake to the sounds of nature and enjoy early breakfast before catching your ride to Wilson Airport, where a 40-minute flight takes you to the Selenkay/Amboseli airstrip. Your safari starts early here, with a game drive en route to your next stop at Porini Amboseli Camp. Set in the private Selenkay Conservancy, Amboseli is a small and intimate camp that offers comfortable lodging in an authentic way – think under-canvas tented rooms, bucket showers and lanterns as the main source of light at night. You won’t be spending much time in your room, though. There’s so much to see and do, including spotting all the big cats on the conservancy, enjoying sundowners with Kilimanjaro in the distance, visiting the nearby Maasai village and, of course, going on day and night game drives. You’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy game drives through Amboseli National Park, delighting in delicious picnic lunches while the hordes of animals go about their day in the distance.

Days 4-6: See the world’s last remaining white rhinos in Ol Pejeta Conservancy | 2 Nights

Up arrow
Kenya

Another early breakfast is your farewell before you depart Amboseli for a flight back to Wilson Airport. An hour’s flight takes you to Nanyuki airstrip where you’ll be transferred to the eco-conscious Porini Rhino Camp, set at the bottom of the Laikipia Plateau in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. While at Rhino Camp, your days will be filled with excellent game viewing in the conservancy (keep an eye out for the Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo). Be sure to take advantage of all the unique activities on offer between game drives. Drop by the chimpanzee sanctuary to say “Hi” to the rescued primates, participate in an optional lion tracking excursion and horse ride through the wild or with rhinos. One opportunity you definitely cannot miss is a visit the Endangered Species Boma to see the world’s last two remaining Northern white rhinos; you’ll also get the chance to handfeed Baraka, a blind black rhino!

Days 6-8: Explore Kenya’s ‘complete wilderness’, Meru National Park | 2 Nights

Up arrow

Bid farewell to Ol Pejeta with one last game drive through the conservancy before catching your chartered flight to Meru National Park. Rhino River Camp is the slice of paradise you get to call home for the next two nights. A bit more upscale than your previous lodgings, Rhino River Camp is the ideal place to recharge after five days of safari adventures. Take some time to recentre by cooling off in the swimming pool or unwinding with a therapeutic massage after your arrival. Then set out to explore the vast, untamed wilderness of the Meru National Park. Meru is affectionately known as Kenya’s ‘complete wilderness’ due to its large populations of elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, cheetah, leopard and countless other classic African mammal species. Not to mention the park’s Rhino Sanctuary, an area devoted to protecting and increasing the population of rhino. There are 40 white and 20 black rhinos roaming freely on the grounds! Between game drives, explore your surroundings on foot by taking a nature walk to the nearby farms, villages and countryside. Or take a hike up a small extinct volcano, to discover the hidden forest inside.

Days 8-10: Enjoy a hot-air balloon ride over the Masai Mara | 2 Nights

Up arrow
Masai Mara, Kenya

The last leg of your journey takes place in the famed Masai Mara. You arrive at your final destination, the award-winning Porini Mara Camp, just in time for lunch. Nestled in the Ol Kinyei Conservancy, you might opt to take a siesta in your under-canvas room or relax in the shade of the canopy of acacia trees before a game drive through the conservancy. Sundowners at scenic spot precede a night drive, where spotlights aid the search for elusive nocturnal animals like the conservancy’s resident leopards. The Masai Mara is one of Africa’s most favoured safari destinations, boasting some of the best wildlife viewings in the world. The region holds over 95 species of mammal and over 570 recorded species of bird, as well as playing host to the annual Great Wildebeest Migration – one of nature’s greatest spectacle. Game drives through the Mara are nothing short of breathtaking. To enhance this magical experience, you’re able to take a hot-air balloon ride over the reserve, slowly floating over the vast landscape as the wildlife carries on below, undisturbed and unaware of your presence.
