Day 1: Arrival - Nairobi

On arrival at the airport, meet your guide. You will be transferred to Ole Sereni Hotel for overnight.

Day 2, 3 & 4: Lewa Conservancy

This morning fly on Air Kenya flight departing from Wilson to Lewa airstrip where your adventure begins in the amazing Lewa Wilderness set on a hillside looking out over the Western Marania Valley and spring below. Started as a tented camp by the Craig family 30 years ago, it is now a comfortable, eight-room lodge offering access to the great game of the Lewa Conservancy.

Embark on day and night game drives in the company of the experienced and well trained guides. Game drives take in Lewa’s diverse habitats and unique wildlife (including the Big 5) as well as some fascinating geology and pre-historic sites including one of Kenya’s few Acheulian hand-axe sites. Guided bush walks will let you appreciate the smaller animals as well as the tracks, trails, signs, sights, sounds and smells of the wilderness – something you often miss from the car! Horse riding around the house environs will offer a completely different way of seeing wildlife.
Overnight at Lewa Wilderness (B, L, D)



Day 5, 6 & 7: Masai Mara National Reserve (Mara North Conservancy)

After a leisurely al fresco breakfast, we now fly to the extraordinary destination of the Maasai Mara.

You will be met by your guide & driver and transferred to your tent with time to settle in before lunch.

Game-drives tend to be the principal means of going about spotting wildlife, and are likely to comprise a great deal of your safari – so it goes without saying that this aspect of your experience is an especial point of focus at Serian Camp.

Other exciting optional activities include nature walks in a private reserve that is accessible only on foot, honey gathering with the Masai, or fishing.

Serian Camp is set in a secluded valley. Its eight, stylish "marquees" overlook the waters of the Mara River. The furnishings evoke the safaris of a bygone era: the rich colours of eastern carpets on hardwood flooring and swathes of cotton setting off the colonial-style furniture and pale canvas walls. Each tent has a full en suite bathroom, with hand-carved stone bath with river view, and a large private verandah from which to enjoy private game-watching, as the animals come to the Mara River.                                
Overnight at Serian Camp (B, L, D)

Day 8: Nairobi – Departure

After breakfast, you will take your final scheduled flight back to Wilson Airport in Nairobi. From here you will follow through with your post trip plans or take your flight back home (B)
