- This is a custom departure, meaning this trip is offered on dates that you arrange privately with the provider. Additionally, you need to form your own private group for this trip. The itinerary and price here is just a sample. Contact the provider for detailed pricing, minimum group size, and scheduling information. For most providers, the larger the group you are traveling with, the lower the per-person cost will be.
ItineraryDay 1 — Karen District, Nairobi
Arrive at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in the evening, where you will be met by the warm, smiling face of your private guide, Paul. Paul will transfer you to Ngong House, where you may have a light snack before settling in for the night. During your first night in Africa, you will probably awaken to the peculiar, electrifying call of a territorial male tree hyrax! In fact, these furry brown creatures that look like giant guinea pigs are the closest living relatives to the elephant! Enjoy your first night in Africa!
Day 2-4 — Masai Mara Game Reserve
After breakfast you will be transferred to Wilson Airport for your scheduled flight to the Masai Mara. Olseki Mara Camp is located just north of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in an area not frequented by the masses of tourists. The camp itself is on a beautiful rocky promontory, overlooking the Ol Sabukioi River with panoramic views of the surrounding area teeming with game. The tents are extremely tasteful, very spacious, concentrating on canvas, wood and neutral safari colors. Each day is different and depends entirely on what you wish to do. You can walk all day meeting a bush breakfast and picnic lunch; track wildlife; game drive at first light or at night; a balloon safari; or a day fishing visit to Lake Victoria. You will encounter an expanse of wildlife, varied vegetation, fantastic bird life and an unforgettable experience of being at one with nature in the Masai Mara. The opportunity to see the enormous elephant, buffalo, rhino and hippo as well as an abundance.
Day 5-7 — Lewa Conservancy
On your last morning in the Mara, you will take a scheduled flight to Lewa Downs airstrip. Upon arrival, your guide will take you to one of Kenya’s early ranches - Lewa Downs. This ranch has been home to the Craig family since they moved from Scotland and began raising cattle in 1924. Lewa Downs is one of very few private ranches in the world where such a remarkable variety of wildlife interacts with each other in their natural habitat. To see and photograph the animals, you may go on walks, horseback or camel expeditions, or day and night game drives in custom, open-top vehicles. Lewa’s first class game experiences, superb accomodations and guides never fail to impress everyone!
Day 8-10 — Manda Island, Lamu
After breakfast you will connect on a scheduled flight to Nairobi and then on down to Manda Island, where you will spend the last three days of your Safari at Manda Bay! Manda Bay Resort is a small private lodge on Manda Island in northern Kenya’s Lamu Kiwayu archipelago. Ten spacious cottages line the beach overlooking the calm waters of Manda Bay. Manda Bay Resort is on a secluded peninsular, close to ancient Lamu Town and neighbouring Shela but far enough away from the bustle to enjoy total privacy. Surrounded by magnificent coral gardens, empty beaches and indigenous woodland. One of the best ways to explore this incredible archipelago is under sail on Utamaduni, our beautiful 62 foot sailing dhow. Utamaduni is a Kiswahili word meaning way of life or culture. Manda Bay is a water sports paradise. Its sheltered mangrove creek and the calm waters are ideal for water skiing. Guests can ski at high tide, yet just outside the creek there is generally enough breeze for sailing, wind-surfing and kite-surfing.
Day 11 — Departure Day
Today after lunch, you will be transferred to the airport where you will board a charter flight to Nairobi’s Wilson Airport. After dinner, you will be transferred to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in time to check in for you overnight flight back home.
