Upon arrival in Nairobi, We will meet and I will transfer you to the BankHouse Karen. Afternoon at leisure. Overnight at the BankHouse Karen in a superior room on a bed and breakfast basis. We will have an optional city walk.
This morning we visit the Giraffe center which offers the unique experience of hand-feeding these gentle giants at eye level from a raised platform while watching the warthogs below snuffle around looking for titbits. Then we travel on to the Sheldrick’s Centre and visit the many baby elephants that have been rescued from threatening situations in Kenya’s various national parks and even get a chance to see the calves being fed and playing with the staff. The next stop is the Karen Blixen Museum. Located in an area that was once part of Karen Blixen’s vast coffee estate, the museum was Karen’s home from 1917 until 1931. The house and grounds were made famous by the film ‘Out of Africa ’and have been restored by the Danish community of Kenya. Visitors have a glimpse of typical colonial life in Kenya at the turn of the twentieth century. After lunch at the lovely Karen Blixen Coffee Gardens, we depart on the next part of our adventure that takes us from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi city to the small but beautiful soda ash lake located in the famous Great Rift Valley, named Lake Elementaita. Lake Elementaita is home to numerous flamingos and over 400 species of birds. We spend the next two nights at a lovely eco-friendly lodge Lake Elementaita Sentrim perched on a hillside overlooking the lake. (Full board)
The second great lake we visited on our tour is Lake Nakuru. 50 minutes drive from Elementaita, the lake is situated in the middle of the national park to which it gives its name. Teeming with wildlife the park has so much to offer. Sometimes, when the water levels are low, the entire lake is covered in flamingos, turning the whole area pink. Lions, buffalos as well as many rhinos call this corner of Kenya home and a game drives around the park is always rewarding. If we are lucky we may even spot a leopard relaxing in a tree beside the lake. After a game-packed day, we arrive back at Sentrim Elementaita Lodge in time to enjoy the sunset over the lake, before sitting down for dinner and toasting the day’s adventures.
Masai Mara National Reserve
Leaving the Great Rift Valley behind we drive to Kenya's famous Maasai Mara, the setting for the Great Migration, and countless wildlife documentaries. The Maasai Mara is the highlight of any safari. We arrive for lunch at Enchoro Wildlife Camp and spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing waiting for the late afternoon when the temperature cools to head out on our first Mara game drive. Back at the camp, dinner is served and gives us the perfect opportunity to look back at our day and relive all those highlights. Day 5: Maasai Mara Game Drive After breakfast this morning we drive across the plains in search of the Big Five and other plains game. The early mornings are one of the best times to view the animals as this is when they are their most active before the heat of the day sets in and after a mid-morning of relaxation and lunch, head out into the reserve for a chance to tick off some more animals on your “must-see” list. Keep your eyes peeled as you hunt for the last members on your list. (Full board) Day 6: Optional hot air ballooning This morning, there is the opportunity to rise early and experience a game-viewing adventure from an entirely different perspective! A hot air balloon safari across the Maasai Mara (at additional cost) which takes off in the crisp morning air, and lasts for approximately an hour, allows for a beautifully peaceful experience floating silently high above plains, forests, and rivers. Upon landing a fully cooked breakfast awaits. More game-viewing opportunities arise later that morning en route back to camp and in the afternoon. Later in the evening, we will visit Maasai Village, here you will be welcomed by the locals singing and dancing, a sacred ritual that has formed their rich tradition. Part of this visit includes a glimpse of their local homes and way of life. (Full board)
Jomo Kenyatta International Airport
This morning we enjoy our last sunrise in the Maasai Mara with tea or coffee on the veranda. After a great final breakfast, we drive back to Nairobi stopping at the Great Rift Valley for one last photo opportunity before you're dropped off at the Jomo Kenyatta airport.
