Itinerary Description:

Kenya is the homeland of the Masai, a semi-nomadic African tribe. This culture is easily identified by their bright garments, consisting of cloth dyed in vivid shades of red and blue, letting them stand out nobly against the stark landscape. This Kenya luxury travel itinerary will help you to explore the Masai culture while experiencing amazing game viewing on foot, mountain bike, camel, or by vehicle.

After a night in Nairobi, Ker & Downey's Kenya luxury travel begins with two nights on the edge of the Chyulu Hills in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro at Ol Donyo Lodge. Discover large matriarchal elephant herds, and visit the Masai manyattas (villages) to meet the families who live there.

Continue to Shaba National Park and Sasaab Camp, a hidden gem on the rocky ridge above the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. This secluded site boasts a blend of Moroccan and Swahili style and a level of sophisticated services that will make any guest feel like royalty. Witness the wildlife by game drive, night drive, or by camel, and visit local schools and markets in the Samburu villages nearby.

Finally, head to the Masai Mara National Reserve and your accommodations at Mara Plains Camp, where you can enjoy game viewing in open safari vehicles and game walks with Masai trackers in this area teeming with wildlife. Before the conclusion of your Kenya luxury travel experience, stop for the day at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi and refresh before your return from Kenya.
