DELUXE | TAILOR-MADE: Offering you more time in one place than many itineraries, the relaxed pace of this safari will allow you to explore each area more in depth. Begin your journey in Nairobi, before heading on safari to Samburu and Masai Mara. Discover all the bush has to offer as you explore the magnificent African landscape, experiencing incredible game viewing along the way.


This 10-day, tailor-made trip showcases the contrasts of Kenya. Enjoy a day seeing the best sights of Nairobi before flying to see the unique wildlife of Samburu National Park. Then it’s on to the Masai Mara, one of Africa’s great national parks and one of the best places to spot the Big Five.

Arrive in Nairobi and enjoy a taste of all Kenya is about at its heart. Your day tour takes you to the Daphne Sheldrick Orphan Elephant Rescue, to see how this organization cares for these magnificent beasts. Then it’s on to the home of Karen Blixen, whose love of Kenya inspired her novel and subsequent film Out of Africa. The Giraffe Centre is your next stop, inviting you to get up close and personal, feeding Rothschild giraffes, before ending the day at Kazuri Beads, where over 300 craftswomen continue this distinctly Kenyan artform.

Fly to Samburu National Park, distinct within Kenya not just for its drier climate, but for the unique range of wildlife that inhabits the park. Keep a lookout for the ‘Samburu Special Five,’ including reticulated giraffes, Grevy’s zebra, Beisa oryx, gerenuk antelope, and the Somali ostrich. Samburu can feel more like a wilderness than some of Kenya’s other parks, enabling great walking safaris if you desire, in addition to included morning and afternoon game drives. Return each night to the luxurious Elephant Bedroom Camp. On your last night here, enjoy a delicious dinner in the bush under the stars.

A light aircraft transfers you to the Masai Mara Game Reserve, which connects to the famed Serengeti in Tanzania. You’ll enjoy private morning and afternoon game drives, plus the opportunity to take a balloon ride over this incredible sanctuary, complete with champagne breakfast. The Mara is also one of Africa’s best destinations to see elusive big cats, and meet the Masai people who’ve called this pristine landscape home for centuries. Your accommodation is Angama Mara, a luxurious tented camp situated on the edge of Africa’s Great Rift Valley.

Return to Nairobi for your onward travels.
