Safari Royale

7 days from £2500pp plus international flights.

Laikipia, Lake Naivasha and the Masai Mara - a wonderful combination of places to enjoy the diverse landscapes and wildlife of Kenya.

Laikipia is a plateau region north west of Nairobi. It's quite a unique area which far fewer people visit than the more well known spots. It has some spectacular landscapes, and the wildlife here can be excellent. Mugie Wildlife Reserve where you have 2 days on this safari has a good range of wildlife and is part of the Laikipia Predator Project too.

At Lake Naivasha, one of the Great Rift Valley lakes, the birdlife is excellent, there are hippos, black and white colobus monkeys and a nearby game corridor means that zebras, giraffes and many antelopes are frequently seen. It's also just a lovely place to relax for couple of days, especially staying at either Chui or Kiangazi Lodge, both of which offer great accommodation.

Moving on to the Masai Mara you will be based for two nights at the lovely Royal Mara Safari Lodge in the Mara North Conservancy. It's only 10 minutes from Leopard Gorge and about 30 minutes from the nearest Migration river crossing point. Whether you come at the time of the Migration (July to October) or at any other time, the Mara never fails to disappoint wildlife lovers.

This is a private tailor made holiday which we can arrange at a time to suit you. You will be seemlessly transferred from place to place using flights to ensure you have the maximum time possible enjoying the wildlife and wilderness instead of travelling. You will be guided by the resident guides in each property.

After settling in and having lunch you'll head out on your first game drive. Be sure to take your camera to record your initial wildlife encounters.

You have a full day to explore all that this region offers. The plains and woodlands are home to a vast number of animals and you'll have both day and night game drives for a complete safari experience. This area is home to a great range of wildlife, and is part of the Laikipia Predator Project. You'll also have the option to accompany a guide on a bush walk to observe nature first hand, to help with ranching activities around the manor and to visit the local school in Mugie. Try to leave time for a leisurely swim in the pool. Round off the day with bush sundowners followed by a tasty dinner. Full board
Stay near Lake Naivasha

DAY 3: FLY TO NAIVASHA

You should arrive in mid-afternoon and will have a short (30 minute) drive to either Chui Lodge or Kiangazi House.

DAY 4: NAIVASHA

You'll have a choice of activities today. These include game drives in the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary, an independent charity dedicated to conservation which has played a major role with its rhino and Grevy's zebra breeding programmes. You'll also have a chance to take a guided nature walk and a boat trip on Lake Naivasha. You might also like to visit the nearby Oserian flower farm, which exports to over 60 countries worldwide. Whatever your choice you're sure to have an exciting and varied day in this scenic part of the Great Rift Valley. Full board

DAY 5: FLY TO THE MASAI MARA

You'll have another opportunity for game drives, walks and boat trips this morning. After lunch you'll be taken to the airstrip for the flight to the world-famous Masai Mara. Your next home is the impressive and exclusive Royal Mara Safari Lodge, where you'll have a spacious tented suite complete with a 4-poster bed and large open deck. This is an area rich in game and you'll have your first Masai Mara safari this afternoon, which is bound to be action-packed. You'll be back at the lodge by dusk, in time for drinks and dinner. Full board

DAY 6: MASAI MARA

The Masai Mara awaits! After your first taster safari yesterday, today you have the chance for more in-depth wildlife viewing with a combination of game drives and guided bush walks. Why not start your day with breakfast by the hippo lagoon as you anticipate the thrills to come. You can supplement wildlife viewing with a visit to the local village and a glimpse into the daily lives of the Maasai, or you might opt for a breath-taking hot air balloon ride. (These are offered at extra cost). You'll be back at the lodge for sundowners and a chance to swap stories with fellow guests. Full board    
Bid farewell to Kenya

DAY 7: FLY TO NAIROBI

After breakfast you'll either be transferred back to the airstrip for the morning flight to Nairobi or, if taking the afternoon flight, you'll have time for a morning game drive or guided walk before lunch and your airstrip transfer. This might be the end of your safari, but bear in mind that you could add on more exciting days in Kenya - perhaps at the beach.  Breakfast
