Day 1: Overnight in Nairobi National Park

Nairobi, Kenya
Detailed breakdown

Day 1: Overnight in Nairobi National Park | 1 Night

Up arrow
Nairobi, Kenya

On arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, make your way through customs and out through arrivals, where a driver will wait to greet you. A road transfer takes you just outside the city to Nairobi National Park where you will overnight at Nairobi Tented Camp. Settle into your tented suite and, depending on how early you arrive, enjoy a scrumptious lunch at the lodge.

It's then up to you how to spend the rest of the day. If you feel you'd be up to heading out to explore, you can spend the afternoon visiting a few attractions in Nairobi such as the Giraffe Centre, Karen Blixen Museum and perhaps the bead market. If you aren't in the mood to tour, kick back and relax at camp. Make use of the cosy lounge, take a refreshing dip in the pool and relax with a book on pool loungers as you recoup from the long flight in. Perhaps pop out on a game drive in the park to get a small taste of the safari experience coming up.


Day 2-4: Fly to the Masai Mara | 3 Nights

Masai Mara, Kenya

After breakfast at Nairobi Tented Camp, a driver will meet you at the lodge for your road transfer to Wilson Airport, where you will board your flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival at Ol Kiombo Airstrip, a guide from Rekero Camp will be on hand to meet you. A short drive brings you to Rekero Camp, where you will spend the next three nights. Upon your arrival at the camp, take a moment to relax and settle into your tent and take in the surroundings. Enjoy a leisurely lunch on the lodge deck with views of the Talek River.

Set within the Masai Mara Game Reserve on the Talek River, Rekero’s position is ideal to spot the wildlife, such as wildebeest and zebra, as they migrate on their annual journey through the Mara. The camp has been known to be surrounded by wildebeest, and with three regular river crossing points in the area, this is where you’ll be experiencing the big-ticket bucket list Great Migration, and possibly river crossings (in season). Along with the herds of wildebeest and zebra, the herds attract thrilling predator action in the area, their presence adding a good dose of excitement to your daily game drives.

After lunch, spend some time enjoying the lodge facilities and take a moment to enjoy the ambiance at camp. A spread of tea, coffee and delectable pastries preludes the afternoon activities. Set out on the afternoon game drive to explore the Mara plains and experience the action of the migration herds up close when the herds are in the area. As golden hour approaches, your guide will find a scenic spot for sundowners before heading back to camp. Arrive back at the lodge to a roaring campfire where you can gather around before a delicious dinner under the stars.


Day 5-7: A Conservancy Within the Mara | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Masai Mara, Kenya

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast ahead of your transfer to the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. The drive allows time for game viewing along the way, and you should arrive at Naboisho Camp in the late morning. Situated in a private conservancy east of Kenya's Masai Mara, Naboisho Camp is a stylishly authentic and intimate safari camp that was first established as a community initiative to preserve wildlife while supporting local communities. Soak in the views and settle into your spacious tent before enjoying lunch on the grass in front of the lodge lounge.

After lunch, there will be time for you to enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool, relax on sun loungers with a good book or head to the deck with a pair of binoculars as you keep an eye out for passing wildlife. By now you’ll have settled into the safari routing and mid-afternoon will see you ready for your afternoon tea and craving the next game drive. As you’re now based within a conservancy, the afternoon game drive can be extended into the evening after sunset to experience nocturnal wildlife activity, a full sky of stars and the fresh aromatic air as your guide uses a spotlight to track.

While morning game drives are still an option at Naboisho, there is also opportunity to use the cooler morning hours to head out on a guided walking safari. Being out in the bush on foot is a different experience from a game drive and allows you to experience the environment from a more intimate perspective. Other than safari activities, you can take an excursion to a local village to meet some members of the community.
