Kenya 8 days / 7 nights
Exclusive Laikipia and Mara Expedition
Day 1 : Nairobi
On arrival at the airport, meet your guide. You will be transferred to Ole Sereni Hotel for overnight.
Day 2, 3 & 4: Lewa Conservancy
This morning fly on Air Kenya flight departing from Wilson to Lewa airstrip where your adventure begins in the amazing Lewa Wilderness set on a hillside looking out over the Western Marania Valley and spring below. Started as a tented camp by the Craig family 30 years ago, it is now a comfortable, eight-room lodge offering access to the great game of the Lewa Conservancy.
Embark on day and night game drives in the company of the experienced and well trained guides. Game drives take in Lewa’s diverse habitats and unique wildlife (including the Big 5) as well as some fascinating geology and pre-historic sites including one of Kenya’s few Acheulian hand-axe sites. Guided bush walks will let you appreciate the smaller animals as well as the tracks, trails, signs, sights, sounds and smells of the wilderness – something you often miss from the car! Horse riding around the house environs will offer a completely different way of seeing wildlife. Overnight at Lewa Wilderness
Day 5, 6 & 7: Masai Mara National Reserve (Mara North Conservancy)
After a leisurely al fresco breakfast, we now fly to the extraordinary destination of the Masai Mara. Scenically, it epitomises the Africa of childhood imaginings: the lone Acacia tree against the cobalt sky, rolling plains that positively heave with life, the sluggish curves of the Mara River choc-a-bloc with hippo and crocs and the odd red «shuka» of a Masai herdsman who carry on their normal pace of life, largely oblivious of all the commotion around them.
Serian Camp is set in a secluded valley. Its eight, stylish «marquees» overlook the waters of the Mara River. The furnishings evoke the safaris of a bygone era: the rich colours of eastern carpets on hardwood flooring and swathes of cotton setting off the colonial-style furniture and pale canvas walls. Each tent has a full en suite bathroom, with hand-carved stone bath with river view, and a large private verandah from which to enjoy private game-watching, as the animals come to the Mara River.
