Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi – Masai Mara

Your experienced guide will meet you at the airport and escort you to Karen Blixen Camp. Set on the banks of the Mara River, the camp accommodated 22 luxurious tents. The camp is spectacular and well located, with the great plains behind the camp and the impressive escarpment in front, overlooking the wildlife rich river. After lunch you will be taken on your first game drive in this remarkable wilderness area. [L, D]

Day 2: Masai Mara

The morning and afternoon game drives provide you with untold opportunities of witnessing the vast array of wildlife that makes the Masai Mara National Reserve so unique. The reserve is renowned for its migration of wildebeest and zebra during July to October, however, it’s spectacular at all times of the year. Your guide will use his extensive knowledge of the area to locate some of the more elusive animals and using his experience, will place you in the best possible position to capture these rare sightings on film (figuratively speaking of course, memory card just doesn’t quite have the same ring to it).

During the heat of the day, when all creatures take a rest and an unspoken truce exists between hunter and prey, is the time to replenish the soul with a soothing massage in the privacy of your tent overlooking the magnificent Mara river or simply relax around the beautifully situated pool.

Accommodation: Karen Blixen Camp  Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 7: Tsavo East

After breakfast you will be taken on a game drive with a picnic lunch on the way to ‘Luggards Falls’ situated on the Galana River. Luggards Falls are actually amazing rapids where the Galana River disappears into a rocky gorge. During the rain season, the raging rapids plunge into a giant pool where huge crocodiles rest and sunbake on the riverbank.  The tumultuous falls have been instrumental in carving fantastic shapes in the landscape and this area is well known for the multi-coloured and unusual rocks. The rapids, that become raging torrents during the rain season, plunge into a large pool below, where giant crocodiles rest and sun themselves on the sandbanks. In the early evening, enjoy a sun downer as the beauty of the day passes by.
