Overnight flight from London (regional
connections available) to Nairobi. (N)
Morning arrival in Nairobi. You will be met at
the airport and transferred north to the Serena
Mountain Lodge for lunch and an overnight
stay. Located on the slopes of Mount Kenya
and offering stunning vistas of the range, this
is the perfect place to spend the afternoon and
evening at leisure, especially as the property
features a floodlit waterhole that attracts
wildlife throughout the day and night. (L, D)
Continue north to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy and stay 2 nights at Serena Sweetwaters
Tented Camp. After lunch enjoy an afternoon
wildlife drive around one of the country’s
leading conservation projects, famed for being
home to East Africa’s largest population of
black rhinos, along with strong numbers of the
rest of the ‘Big Five’. (B, L, D)
Morning and afternoon game drives in search
of any wildlife that may have eluded you thus
far. (B, L, D)
Drive south-west into the Great Rift Valley to
Lake Elmenteita, arriving in time for lunch.
The tectonic and volcanic nature of this region
makes its landscapes quite different from
those elsewhere in Kenya and the wildlife is
also distinctive. Here, among the alkaline lakes,
it is birds that rule the roost. In the Soysambu
Conservancy, where you will have an afternoon
wildlife drive, 450 bird species are resident,
including 28% of the world’s population of
lesser flamingos. Over 50 species of mammal
also exist here, such as the endangered
Rothschild’s giraffe and cheeky colobus
monkey. Stay overnight at Serena Lake
Elmenteita Tented Camp. (B, L, D)
Continue south-west to the Masai Mara, one
of Earth’s true wildlife wonderlands, boasting
incredible numbers of classic safari creatures
throughout the year. You will arrive at the
Mara Serena Lodge, your home for the next
2 nights, in time for lunch, before heading
out for an afternoon drive through the reserve.
(B, L, D)
Spend another day in this wildlife hot spot,
soaking up the surroundings and spotting countless species on morning and afternoon
game drives. (B, L, D)
After breakfast, return to Nairobi for an
afternoon at leisure or take optional excursions
such as a visit to Daphne Sheldrick’s Elephant
Orphanage (from £90) or an Out of Africa tour
visiting the Karen Blixen Museum (from £85).
Overnight at the Nairobi Serena Hotel. (B)

the world’s ‘largest’ waterfall, or head to the
coast to enjoy Kenya’s pristine beaches. (B)
