Combining two of the best reserves that Kenya has to offer - Amboseli and the Mara - this 7 night itinerary gives you nothing but a safari from start to end. On top of the outstanding wildlife that are found here, add to this stunning locations as well - and it is a wonderful way to spend your week's holiday.
You begin with 3 nights in Amboseli. Satao Elerai offers elegantly furnished cottage rooms with large sliding doors that open out onto your own private verandah overlooking the plains below and Amboseli National Park - plus the perfect view of Mount Kilimanjaro. A sundowner with Kilimanjaro as the backdrop is something not to be missed, and only a few locations offer such an amazing chance to take this iconic African sunset picture.
You will then head to Kicheche Mara Camp for 4 nights. This is a classic tented camp hidden in a beautiful valley in a prime wildlife area of the Mara North Conservancy, adjoining the Masai Mara National Reserve. The luxury tents are laid out alongside a seasonal stream from where you can observe the resident birdlife and plains game beyond. The location is ideal as game viewing frequently starts in the camp itself.
The Mara North Conservancy is a private conservancy set alongside the Masai Mara - so guests staying here can escape the crowds and experience the African wilderness without the presence of other tourist vehicles. There are no physical boundaries between the main Mara Reserve and the conservancy so the wildlife is free to roam unhindered.
There is also the opportunity for the more intrepid traveller to fly camp from here - where you spend one of your nights out in the wilderness with just your guide, to experience 100% authentic under canvas safari experience.
You will be met once you disembark from the plane and assisted through Immigration (including help if required with visa application and processing), luggage collection and Customs (luggage screening). You will then be accompanied to meet up with your driver/Customer Services representative.
You will then be transferred to Wilson Airport, where you will board your flight to Amboseli.
Safarilink 13 (Light Aircraft): Fly from Wilson Airport (WIL) departing at 07:30 to Amboseli Airstrip, arriving at 08:55
You will be met and transferred to your safari camp. Satao Elerai Camp is located in a quiet, unspoilt, unique setting on a 5,000 acre private conservation area 12 km south east of Amboseli National Park at the foot of Africa's largest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. The camp looks down onto the Amboseli National Park in one direction and up to Mount Kilimanjaro in the other direction, giving guests what is arguably the best location of any camp in Amboseli. One of the biggest advantages of Satao Elerai Camp is that being located on its own private conservation area guests staying here have the chance to view wildlife in private surroundings as well as on daily game drives into the Amboseli National Park itself. The camp also offers the chance to enjoy spectacular bush sundowners, night game drives and game walks on the conservancy, activities that are not available to the lodges located within the National Park.
After breakfast, you will be transferred back to the airstrip, where you will board your flight back to Nairobi.
Safarilink 012 (Light Aircraft): Fly from Amboseli Airstrip departing at 09:05 to Wilson Airport (WIL), arriving at 09:50
You will be assisted with boarding your onward flight to the Mara North Conservancy.
Safarilink 001 (Light Aircraft): Fly from Wilson Airport (WIL) departing at 10:00 to Masai Mara Airstrip, arriving at 11:00
You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to your camp. Set in the private Mara North Conservancy, Kicheche Mara has stunning views down the valley and all tents overlook the Olare Orok stream. With only 8 tents, an intimate and relaxed atmosphere is assured. Early morning and late afternoon are the most productive hours for game drives and the safari customised 4WD vehicles give everyone a perfect view. A different perspective is gained through escorted walks on the savannah. The interpretive guides will point out the spoor of a leopard, the nest of a rare bird or signs of recent migration activity that would otherwise have pass unnoticed from a game vehicle.
