Itinerary in detail

1

Arrival in Nairobi

Welcome to Kenya. Upon arrival in Nairobi, a local representative will be waiting at the airport to transfer you to your comfortable hotel. Overnight at Eka Hotel.

Things to do:

2

Nairobi & Maasai Mara

After breakfast, enjoy a scenic flight by light aircraft to Musiara airstrip in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Your wildlife adventure begins immediately with a short game drive from the airstrip to Governors’ Camp. Your home for the next 4 nights is a classic safari tent at this exclusive camp, set on the banks of the Mara River in a wildlife-rich corner of the Maasai Mara Reserve. The camp is unfenced so grazing animals often pass through. Your plans for the following days are incredibly flexible with two or three games drives per day, depending on your preference. You’ll be allocated an expert driver/guide who you’ll get to know well during your stay. They will know the very best places to spot wildlife and even know all the local lions by name. Overnight at Governors’ Camp.

Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara is home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the world and today you’ll begin to discover it. The region is deservedly famous for its big cats but is also a fantastic place to experience other wildlife including elephants, giraffe, zebra, antelope, impala, hyenas, and warthogs. Visit during the dry season between June and October and you’ll witness The Great Migration, when over two million wildebeest thunders across the plains in search of lush grasslands. Between game drives you can relax at the camp and enjoy excellent meals in the dining tent, or al fresco. Overnight at Governors’ Camp.

Maasai Mara

Today you’ll continue to explore the Mara with its boundless savannahs dotted with acacia trees, and waterholes attracting Africa’s most iconic beasts. The region is rightly famed for its unparalleled wildlife, but the Community and Conservation programme is also highly recommended during your time at Governors’. Experience the traditional Maasai way of life by visiting the local Mara Rianda community, who live in a manyatta village of circular huts set around a cattle enclosure. Here you can shop for traditional beadwork made by local women and visit the Mara Rianda medical clinic which treats common problems in the Maasai Mara like malaria and eye disease. Overnight at Governors’ Camp.

Things to do:

5

Maasai Mara

During your stay at Governors’ there’s the opportunity to take a thrilling hot-air balloon safari to gain a whole new perspective of the Maasai Mara. Wake early and watch as the balloon is prepared, then take flight and drift upwards as the sun rises. The bright pink-orange haze is visible for miles across the vast savannah, as wildlife roam below. The memorable flight is followed by an impressive Champagne breakfast that will be set up as your balloon comes into land. This is our most popular optional experience in Kenya. The rest of the day is spent on further game drives into the heart of this wildlife-rich reserve with your expert driver/guide. Overnight at Governors’ Camp.

Things to do:

Maasai Mara & Departure

After breakfast, fly back to Nairobi by light aircraft for your return flight to the UK or onward travel.

Another stop?

We recommend finishing your African adventure with a beach stay on the white sands of Diani or Mombasa on the Kenyan Coast. Zanzibar, or its small sister island of Pemba, are also fantastic options only a short flight from Nairobi in Tanzania.

Alfred & Daniel Heatly

Upon leaving university, Daniel blindly placed a pin into a map (we kid you not!) to select South Africa as the first destination he ever travelled to. This was the beginning of a 23 year love affair with African travel. Subsequent adventures have taken him to Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia, meeting new people and discovering new experiences along the way.

Plan your holiday withAlfred&

Your journey will start with one of our UK team – someone like Paul, who's travelled extensively in Kenya. They’ll shape your ideas into the trip of a lifetime. But they won't do it alone. They'll draw on the expertise of our contacts on the ground, connecting you to the people who'll make your holiday one you'll always remember - the rangers who'll ensure you'll spot the best wildlife in the Mara, the village chiefs who'll give you a genuine insight into local life and the camp managers who can recommend the very best spot for your sundowner.
