You will be met on arrival at the Airport and whisked through the city to your hotel for the night. Alternatively and if your schedule allows it, you may choose to visit some of the city’s highlights like the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, the Karen Blixen Museum or the Giraffe Centre, where you can see a herd of endangered Rothschild’s giraffes. You may even want to have your first game drive with a short visit through Nairobi National Park.
Days 2-4: Nairobi to Amboseli | 2 Nights
AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK, KENYA
After breakfast, you will be driven to Wilson Airport for the short flight on a light aircraft to an airstrip in Amboseli National Park. Although it is a small park by Africa’s standards, Amboseli has some of the best views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
You will arrive in time to have an Italian-inspired lunch at a selected Camp before heading off on your afternoon game drive in the private conservancy in the national park. The next morning, breakfast will be out in the bush on your morning game drive while your afternoon will be given over to an exciting walking safari with an armed and trained guide. A highlight of your nature walk will be sundowners in scenic spot as the sun sets on another day in Africa.
Days 4-6: Touchdown in Meru | 2 Nights
After a last morning game drive and final breakfast at The Camp, you will fly out of Amboseli and land in Meru in time for a midday meal. This will be your home for the next two days. You will stay at the Elsa’s Kopje lodge.
After lunch, it is up to you whether you would like to go on an afternoon game drive or be pampered with a relaxing massage. The following day a morning game drive with bush breakfast, lunch at the lodge, and finally an afternoon game drive with a relaxing evening at the lodge.
Days 6-7: Landing in the Maaasai Mara | 2 Nights
MASAI MARA, KENYA
You are finally flying to the big one: the Masai Mara is one of the most famous parks in the world and is renowned for its role in the annual wildebeest migration from about August every year.
Having enjoyed a dawn nature walk and a breakfast at Elsa’s Kopje, you will then take off from the Meru Airstrip and touchdown at the Keekorok Airstrip in the Mara. A camp inspired by the bygone safaris of the 1920s will be your home here – relax and enjoy dinner on your first night at Sand River Maasai Mara, which enjoys a secluded riverside setting.
The next morning, having slept soundly in your canopied 4-poster bed, have breakfast at camp before setting off for a full-day game drive in Masai Mara National Park. Instead of a few hours, you will have the whole day to seek out lions, elephants, birds or whatever else you and your guide agree to try and find. At midday, your guide will set out a delicious picnic lunch in a shady and safe spot before continuing in the afternoon.
After the game drive, make a visit to one of the Maasai villages and get to hear first-hand the life of the Maasai people.
Day 8: Back to Nairobi
The beauty of a fly-in safari is the extra time that it affords you at each lodge. Once again, you are able to enjoy breakfast at Sand River and even go on a final morning game drive if you choose before having lunch. Only then will you be driven back to Keekorok Airstrip for the short flight back to Wilson Airport.
Once back in Nairobi, you will have your last supper on Kenyan soil before checking in at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your flight home.
