Our tailor made Kenya tours offer the opportunity to experience classic Kenyan sights on safari, on foot, by helicopter, and on a camel trek. The striking Lewa Downs guarantee an exciting safari experience and we’ll make sure there are as many ways to enjoy exploring the landscapes as there is wildlife to encounter. Having mastered the bush you’ll be whisked off to the verdant plains of the magnificent Masai Mara. Here you can discover the culture and traditions of the Maasai people and experience thrilling dawn and dusk game drives on the search for Africa’s Big Five. DAY 1 UK - Kenya Arriving from London, you’ll step off the aeroplane into Nairobi’s balmy evening air. We’ll be there to meet and take you to the Eka Hotel for a relaxing evening before your tailor made Kenya tour begins. DAY 2 Lewa Downs It's a short flight from Nairobi to Lewa Downs, yet there will be plenty to see. Passing the heights of Mount Kenya, you’ll land in a lush nature reserve where big game thrives. The short transfer from the airstrip to your intimate Lewa Safari Camp doubles as a game drive. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled to see what wildlife you can tick off first! DAY 3 & 4 Lewa Downs For two days you can immerse yourself in the majesty of Lewa. Morning game drives at sunrise offer the chance to see wildlife at its most active. Meanwhile, evening drives offer predators hungrily prowling on the hunt. You’ll have the unique opportunity to spot elephant, lion, giraffe and black and white rhinoceros. You can get closer to the bush on guided walks and camel treks. And a helicopter ride helps you appreciate the beauty and vastness of the area that the animals cover. DAY 5 Lewa Downs - Masai Mara Your next stop is the iconic Masai Mara, one of the finest reserves in Africa. At Sanctuary Olonana you’ll stay on the banks of the Mara River in the heart of big game country. You’ll spot plenty of wildlife on the way to the camp, and even more on your first afternoon game drive. End your safari with a sundowner, gazing across the dusk-pink of the Mara plains. DAY 6 & 7 Masai Mara For the next two days you can decide whether it’s exclusive game drives or relaxing watching hippo from the decks of Sanctuary Olonana. For visceral bush encounters you can set out on foot with an expert ranger or you can visit the local Maasai manyatta to learn more about their way of life. DAY 8 Masai Mara - Kenyan Coast You’ll have time for one last game drive at dawn, before heading to the airstrip for your flight to the Kenya coast for three nights of relaxation on the beach. DAY 9 & 10 Kenya Coast Kenya’s south coast is the perfect place to relax and reflect on your safari adventure. Indulge in spa treatments or simply while away your time with a good book by the pool at Hemmingways Watamu. DAY 11 Kenya Coast - UK There’s time for one last walk on the beach before you board your flight back to Nairobi. Toast a terrific trip with dinner at a top Nairobi restaurant, before boarding an overnight flight back to the UK. DAY 12 UK Well-rested after your flight you’ll arrive back in the UK early in the morning.
