Wild Kenya Fly-in Safari

This is a superb fly-in safari staying at contrasting properties in a variety of settings. From The Emakoko with its riverside cottages in the heart of Nairobi National Park you fly to Borana Lodge perched on the Laikipia Plateau with jaw-dropping views, before finishing your safari in style at Kicheche Mara, a stunning small tented camp in the Masai Mara. This is a unique safari with sharp focus on widlife and its conservation - you have the option to visit the rangers and dogs of the anti-poaching unit at Lewa Conservancy and an excellent chance of seeing an array of endangered species including black rhino.

On behalf of every client booking this safari The Real Africa Trust will make a £50 per person donation to Save the Rhino, which in turn supports the anti-poaching rhino dog squads operating at Lewa and Borana. Borana and Lewa are not for profit conservancies at the forefront of the modern conservation movement offering a real insight into the challenges of wildlife conservation.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1 - 2

Nairobi National Park
You will be met at the airport and taken to the Emakoko. Within half an hour of leaving the airport you will be in the wilds of Nairobi National Park, avoiding the city's notorious traffic! Nestled into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River, the Emakoko is a family owned luxury lodge offering superb hospitality. You may be surprised to learn that Nairobi National Park has a very healthy black Rhino population of 50 and is renowned for close encounters with lions. There are 80 species of mammal here including buffalo, cheetah, zebra, giraffe and hippo, and over 400 species of birds. You also have the chance to visit the Sheldrick Trust elephant orphanage in the park during your stay. There is plenty of time to relax around the pool and soak up the African sunshine from your private cottage. This is the perfect place to start your safari while also giving you a little time to recover from your international flight. The barman, Lawrence - known as 'the Doctor' make a mean 'Dawa' cocktail - you must try one!

DAY 3 - 5

Laikipia Plateau
This morning you will be taken to Wilson Airport in Nairobi where you fly to Lewa Downs. On arrival at Lewa Downs you will be met by rangers in an open sided 4x4 and can enjoy the thrill of safari as you journey across the famous Lewa and Borana conservancies to beautiful Borana Lodge. Spend your days here enjoying an array of included activities from 4x4 safaris, horse-riding and walking. This private conservancy is home to the Big Five and many rare species such as Grevy's zebra, black and white rhino and elephant.
