Nairobi to Laikipia
Our representative will be waiting for you at Nairobi's International Airport and ensure you are safely transferred across town to Wilson airport for the morning flight to Nanyuki Airstrip in Laikipia. This is where your safari begins. Your guide will be waiting to meet you and transfer you to Kicheche Laikipia Camp in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, it's about an hour's drive. Lunch will be served and then you can have a siesta until afternoon tea. You'll venture out on an afternoon game drive, see how many different animals you can spot. Return to camp for drinks around the campfire and dinner with the other guests.
The days start early on safari and you will be woken with a hot drink, then you'll head out on safari. Making the most of your time here, a wonderful picnic breakfast will be served out on the plains. Carry on game driving and wildlife watching and return to camp for a relaxing alfresco lunch, where you can watch wildlife at the waterhole. Spend the afternoon relaxing in camp and then take an evening game drive, returning to camp at dusk. Night drives are a possibility for those interested in viewing an array of nocturnal species.
There is plenty of activities to choose from today. You may want to try your hand at lion tracking, mountain biking or canoeing. Game drives are of course on offer or you could take a walking excursion with one of the guides and a ranger. (Walks can be adapted to suit different ages.) Enjoy a picnic breakfast before continuing. Lunch is back in camp and then this afternoon you can choose between a game drive, visiting one of the ranching programmes or the Wildlife Centre. Back at camp, drinks and dinner will be served before you turn in for the night.
To Masai Mara
A leisurely start today with an alfresco breakfast before saying your goodbyes and setting off for the airstrip for the morning flight to Masai Mara. You'll be welcomed on landing at the Mara airstrip and driven to your next camp, either Kicheche Mara, Olare Bush Camp or Kicheche Valley Camp, your transfer to camp is a game drive so keep those eyes peeled. Settle in with lunch and afternoon tea, perhaps a siesta before setting off on another game drive followed by sundowners. You'll arrive back in camp in time to freshen up before dinner.
An early start makes the most of the day. Breakfast will be served before you set off on a game drive to the reserve or another conservancy. You'll be out all day so a scrumptious packed lunch has been prepared for you to enjoy en route, at a scenic viewpoint. Then continue game driving and wildlife viewing before returning back to camp late afternoon. If the kids are tired, an early dinner can be arranged while you enjoy a sundowner.
This morning, rise early and enjoy an exhilarating game walk. Children over 12 can enjoy this, for those under 12 we can arrange a nature walk near camp. The walk takes about 2 hours and allows you to get a different perspective of the land you have been exploring for the past few days. Lunch will be served back at camp and then this afternoon you may want to visit a traditional Masai manyatta (village) or perhaps go out on another game drive.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner
Wake early on your last day and head out with your guide for a final game drive. Return to camp for a hearty breakfast. It's time to bid farewell to the friends that you have made in camp and you will be transferred back to the airstrip for the morning flight to Wilson Airport in Nairobi. Our ground crew will be here to meet you and transfer you to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your flight home.
