DAY 2: OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY & CHIMPANZEE SANCTUARY
 

Your first day on safari! This morning, we drive to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a private game sanctuary situated on the Laikipia Plains near Mount Kenya, arriving in time for lunch at the Sweetwaters Tented Camp. Built on the grounds of a colonial-era farm inside the conservancy itself, Sweetwaters is the perfect base for exploring Ol Pejeta. After settling into your accommodations, set out into the bush for your first game-viewing drive. Later this afternoon, you will tour Sweetwater’s Chimpanzee Sanctuary, the only facility of its kind in Kenya. Upon your return to camp, you can relax on your private verandah overlooking the camp’s water hole, take a dip in the pool, or catalog the day’s haul of wildlife photographs. After dinner, relax by the fire or retire to the wonderful ambiance of your tent. The camp’s luxurious tents all feature comfortable beds, electricity, hot/cold running water, and a full in-suite bathroom with shower.

DAY 4: MOUNT KENYA
 

After a morning game drive, we head north through coffee and pineapple plantations to the Aberdares region and the unique Serena Mountain Lodge inside Mount Kenya National Park. An ancient and long-extinct volcano, the legendary Mount Kenya is Africa’s second tallest mountain. Its jagged central peaks are a stunning sight as we approach from the south. Situated nearly 7,000 feet above sea level on the lower slopes of the mountain, the timbered Serena Mountain Lodge is nestled deep within the primordial rainforest. Perched on stilts high above its own water hole and salt lick, the lodge affords guests a treetop view of wildlife from their rooms, several decks, and even from a secret viewing hide by the water’s edge. After our arrival in the late afternoon, spend the rest of the evening enjoying a leisurely dinner and taking in the excellent game viewing just below the lodge. Tonight, fall asleep to the symphony of the African forest or simply sit in stillness watching as the animals arrive to drink, bathe, spar, and forage around the water hole. It is an experience you will never forget.

DAY 5: LAKE NAKURU

This morning, you may find yourself awakened by the trumpeting of elephants who have come for their morning visit to the water hole. We drive to Lake Nakuru National Park arriving in time for lunch at Lake Nakuru Lodge. Enjoy an afternoon game drive in the park, famous for its vast flocks of flamingoes. In some months, these birds are so abundant that they seem to form a pink band along the lakeshore. Among a wide variety of other animals, notable inhabitants of the park include giraffe, buffalo, waterbuck, lion, and rhinoceros.

DAY 6: MAASAI MARA 
 

Setting out across the Great Rift Valley, we arrive in the Maasai Mara in time for lunch at Mara Serena Safari Lodge. Set high on a hilltop above the Mara, the lodge is blessed with sweeping views of the savannah below. In the distance you can see the meandering coils of the hippo-filled Mara river. The Maasai Mara Game Reserve is widely considered to be one of Africa’s greatest reserves, where the Maasai community co-exists in harmony with the local fauna. The co-existence of man and wildlife makes this one of the world’s most unique wilderness regions. The Mara is home to a breathtaking array of life. Enjoy an afternoon game drive in this natural paradise, returning to the lodge for dinner and relaxation around the fire pit.

DAY 7: MAASAI MARA

Enjoy a full day of game viewing in the Maasai Mara. The vast grasslands teem with herds of zebra, giraffe, gazelle, and topi. The acacia forests abound with monkeys and bird life. Elephants and buffalo wallow in the wide Musiara Swamp while the Mara and Talek rivers brim with hippos and crocodiles. From July through October, the Mara plays host to one of the greatest spectacles on the planet as millions of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and topi head north from Tanzania into Kenya. Those fortunate enough to witness The Great Migration are treated to spectacular viewing and photographic opportunities.
