For those with limited time, this 7 night itinerary takes in Amboseli, Laikipia and the iconic Masai Mara, for a whirlwind flying tour of Kenya's top wildlife hotspots.
Watch elephants wallow in the swamps of Amboseli, with the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro as the background to any photo opportunity, before flying to the remote Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Host to all the members of the ‘Big Five' (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard), the conservancy also boasts the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, hosts the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya, and shelters large numbers of rare and endangered species.
Finally, it's off to the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve. The Mara Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate safari destination. Set high on a bush-cloaked hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River, the lodge blends international sophistication with raw African beauty.
Once you have cleared Customs & Immigration at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and collected your luggage, you need to make your way to the Arrivals Hall, where you will be met by your driver who will be holding a sign board with your name on it. You will then be transferred to Eka Hotel.
After an early breakfast, you will be collected and transferred to Wilson Airport.
