Itinerary Description:

Your Kenya safari begins after a restful night in the plantation-style comfort of Hemingways in Nairobi. Fly to Laikipia first and your safari accommodations at Sirikoi Lodge. You'll find yourself in the shadow of Mount Kenya and surrounded by the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, with ample game drive excursions and other opportunities to explore. A huge variety of birdlife, plains game, and predators can be found in the region on safaris by foot, ATV off-roading, and horseback and camel treks, all with expert guides leading the way through the wild.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is next, and your tented suite at Rekero Camp primes you for discovering this legendary location. Known for the annual influx of migrating grazing herds during the Great Migration, the Mara is alive with predators and prey year-round. The Kenya safari experience here is enhanced with visits to local communities possible between game drives.

Your journey ends back in Nairobi, where you will have time at Hemingways to refresh after your Kenya safari adventure and rest ahead of your international flight onward. Travel home, carrying with you a renewed spirit and appreciation for the wonder of Kenya and its wild menagerie.
