Overview

The Safari Legend


Click to enlarge

Kenya is where the enduring image of the wildlife safari was born, created by European aristocrats accustomed to high living coming to view the wonders of the newly explored continent in style and luxury.

As one of the most developed East African countries Kenya can still offer something of this and to go to the old settlers ranches in the central Kenyan highlands is an insight into a previous century and an old colonial world, but it is also more than just that.

Many of the large private ranches are now dedicated to conservation and help preserve a large part of Kenya's wild places and wild animals.

They also provide a high quality safari experience!

Then there's the Masai Mara- it has a reputation as being over-crowded and some parts deserve this reputation but the northern part has a similar exclusive feel to the private ranches and can offer some of the best wildlife viewing anywhere.

There isn't the diversity of Tanzania so some people choose to combine a short visit to Kenya with a fuller safari in Tanzania.

Kenya Of Old

This safari was created to include the best wildlife areas- the Masai Mara and the central highlands- which also offer high quality accommodation and a range of activities

Day 1: Arrive at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. You will be met and taken to The Fairview Hotel

A pleasant reliable hotel well located for your onward journey – often described as "That Rare Bird in Africa" for having all the things you want but not too much you don't. Perfect to relax at after a long flight.

Day 2: You will be met and taken to the local airport for a light aircraft flight to the world famous Masai Mara

As you land on the grassy airstrip the pilot will often buzz the runway to clear it of wildlife. After landing you will be met by your guide for the next few days and taken in your open-topped safari vehicle to Little Governors Camp. This is situated in the more remote northern part of the Mara where the wildlife viewing is often spectacular- especially if the wildebeest migration is passing through.

Day 3: Spend another day exploring the Masai Mara

This is an excellent area to see cheetah, a species that is often hard to spot elsewhere.

Day 4: Fly North to Mount Kenya

Again you will take a light aircraft and head towards Mount Kenya which you should see jutting into the sky on your right. Land at Nanyuki Airstrip. You will be met and driven 1 hour to Laikipia Plateau. This huge area on the slopes of the mountain has many protected and rare species not found elsewhere ( Reticulated Giraffe, Grevys Zebra , Northern White Rhino- only a handful left and most of them here!).
