Classic Kenya

Example of a tailor made itinerary:

Arriving from London, you’ll step off the aeroplane into Nairobi’s balmy evening air. We’ll be there to meet and take you to the Eka Hotel for a relaxing evening before your tailor made Kenya tour begins.

It’s a short flight from Nairobi to Lewa Downs, yet there will be plenty to see. Passing the heights of Mount Kenya, you’ll land in a lush nature reserve where big game thrives. The short transfer from the airstrip to your intimate Lewa Safari Camp doubles as a game drive.

For two days you can immerse yourself in the majesty of Lewa. Morning game drives at sunrise offer the chance to see wildlife at its most active. Meanwhile, evening drives offer predators hungrily prowling on the hunt. You’ll have the unique opportunity to spot elephant, lion, giraffe and black and white rhinoceros. A helicopter ride helps you appreciate the beauty and vastness of the area that the animals cover.

Your next stop is the iconic Masai Mara, one of the finest reserves in Africa. At Sanctuary Olonana you’ll stay on the banks of the Mara River in the heart of big game country. You’ll spot plenty of wildlife on the way to the lodge, and even more on your first afternoon game drive. End your safari with a sundowner.

For the next two days you can decide whether it’s exclusive game drives or relaxing watching hippo from the decks of Sanctuary Olonana. For visceral bush encounters you can set out on foot with an expert ranger or you can visit the local Maasai manyatta to learn more about their way of life.

You’ll have time for one last game drive at dawn, before heading to the airstrip for your flight to the Kenya coast for three nights of relaxation on the beach.

Kenya’s south coast is the perfect place to relax and reflect on your safari adventure. Indulge in spa treatments or simply while away your time with a good book by the pool at Hemmingways Watamu. 

There’s time for one last walk on the beach before you board your flight back to Nairobi.  Toast a terrific trip with dinner at a top Nairobi restaurant, before boarding an overnight flight back to the UK.
