Day 1 - Depart

Fly from Heathrow to Nairobi, arriving next day. Regional departures from around the UK are also available.

Day 2 - Sweetwaters

You’ll be met on arrival at Nairobi airport, and transferred to the nearby Safari Lounge, where you can freshen up and store any beach luggage that you don’t want to take on safari. Depart Nairobi and drive north, to your camp at Sweetwaters in time for lunch (220 km). Enjoy an afternoon game drive in Conservancy, which is a private reserve set in the extensive savannah grasslands and riverine forests that border the Ewaso Nyiro River, offering the only Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Kenya. Overnight: Sweetwaters Serena Camp (lunch and dinner included).

Day 3 - Sweetwaters

Enjoy an early morning game drive in the wonderful Sweetwaters Sanctuary. After breakfast, time to relax at the camp before lunch -Sweetwaters is a sheltered oasis designed to offer a charming blend of under-canvas ambiance and uncompromising luxury. This tented camp is in a class of its own. An afternoon game drive with visits to the delightful Chimp and Rhino sanctuary. At the forefront of the Kenyan conservancy programme, Ol Pejeta boasts the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, hosts the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya, and shelters large numbers of rare and endangered species. Overnight: Sweetwaters Serena Camp (breakfast, lunch and dinner included).

Day 4 - Lake Elementeita

After breakfast drive to Lake Elementeita, a bird lovers paradise where an estimated 300 bird species have been spotted (265 km). Enjoy lunch and some leisure time, maybe a swim in the pool or a relaxing massage. Lake Elementeita is another of the Great Rift Valley’s soda lakes, and its bleached shores often turn pink with flocks of flamingoes. Overnight: Lake Elementeita Serena Camp (breakfast, lunch and dinner included).

Day 5 - Masai Mara

After breakfast drive to the world-famous Masai Mara in time for lunch at the fabulous Mara Serena Lodge (360 km).After lunch a game drive will introduce you to this incredible game reserve. The Masai Mara is one of the most famous wildlife reserves in the world, and rightly so - the variety and quantity of wildlife found here is simply incredible, and most visitors are awestruck by the area. It’s one of our favourite places in the world! Overnight: Mara Serena Lodge (breakfast, lunch and dinner included).

Day 6 - Masai Mara

A full day in the magnificent Masai Mara. Enjoy a game drive followed by breakfast at the camp - alternatively, there’s an opportunity for a hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara (optional extra) in the early morning, followed by breakfast (complete with sparkling wine) in the bush - it’s an amazing experience, and one we’d highly recommend. The rest of the morning is at leisure before lunch. In the afternoon a second game drive will show you more of the Masai Mara’s wildlife. Overnight: Mara Serena Lodge (breakfast, lunch and dinner included).

Day 7 - Masai Mara

A further day in the exciting Masai Mara to enjoy morning and afternoon game drives, with time in between to relax and make use of the facilities at the beautiful lodge. The Serena lodge is set high on a bush-cloaked hill, embraced by arcing vistas and washed by a sea of richly rolling grasslands. The lodge stands centre-stage to one of Africa's most dramatic wildlife arenas and has a ringside seat for the greatest wildlife show on earth, the legendary migration of the wildebeest. Overnight: Mara Serena Lodge (breakfast, lunch and dinner included).

Day 8 - Depart

After breakfast drive to Nairobi (335 km - approximately 5 hours), or for a supplement there's the option to fly by light aircraft from the Masai Mara to Nairobi (do bear in mind that this limits your luggage allowance for the whole safari.) When you arrive in to Nairobi proceed with your onward travel arrangement (breakfast included).

On occasion the itinerary may operate in a different order, or different lodges used according to availability and road conditions.
