Safari Itinerary

On arrival at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met by our representative in the and transferred to The Residences at Karen. The following day starts with a half day tour with visits to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe Centre, and the Karen Blixen museum dedicated to the writer of the book "Out of Africa." You will be able to interact with both the baby elephants and the giraffes as well as learning more about the vital conservation work these two charities do. Finally, take a short tour of the home of pioneer coffee farmer Karen Blixen, known for her memoir "Out of Africa." Enjoy lunch (dessert & drinks are not included) at Karen Blixen Coffee Gardens before returning to your hotel and enjoying the rest of the day at leisure.

DAY 3 - 6

Following breakfast check out and transfer to Nairobi Wilson Airport where you will catch your flight to Laikipia. On arrival at Nanyuki Airstrip a representative from El Karama Eco-Lodge will meet you and you will enjoy a short game drive to the lodge where you will arrive in time for lunch. You spend the next few days enjoying game drives and safari activities. Visitors to El Karama enjoy complete freedom - you can walk out on foot with the guides, birdwatch with specialists, take photographs from the rock hide, take guided game drives and night drives in customized vehicles, visit the working farm and much more. There are over 80 mammal species including lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, hippo, reticulated giraffe, common and Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, eland, oryx and more to look out for. Stretching over a vast area from the foothills of Mount Kenya to the shores of Lake Baringo, the Laikipia Plateau is one of Kenya’s lesser known wildlife areas. It harbours more endangered species than anywhere else in East Africa. This is the place to see Grevy’s zebra, Jackson’s hartebeest and the rare Africa wild dog. Many northern species are found including reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx and gerenuk. There are large elephant populations, thriving lion, leopard and cheetah and numerous impala and gazelle. The land on the plateau is divided into huge wildlife conservancies, sometimes known as ranches after the farms that used to exist there. All are now devoted to wildlife conservation.

DAY 7 - 10

The Masai Mara
Following breakfast, you will enjoy one last game drive to the airstrip where you will arrive in time to check-in for your flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival at Mara Ngerende Airstrip a representative from House in the Wild will meet you and you will enjoy a short game drive to the lodge where you will arrive in time for lunch. Situated on the northern most point of the Greater Mara Ecosystem, Enonkishu offers incredible wildlife viewing. The Mara River runs alongside the conservancy. There is a large number of giraffe and plains game and resident buffalo that live close to the Olerai boundary along the Mara River. Elephants frequent the conservancy and there is a pride of lion that is based on the edge of Enonkishu and Ol Choro Oiroua. There are many hippos and crocodiles in the section of river that borders the conservancy and the riverine forests provide an area popular with leopards. Rare species such as Aardvark, Caracal, serval cat and Aardwolf are occasionally found. Colobus monkeys have been spotted in the valleys on the Kileleoni Hill and there have also been sightings of wild dog in Enonkishu. There is no doubt that Enonkishu offers an incredible game viewing experience. As well as game viewing there are plenty of other activities on offer here which children will enjoy including: school visits, helping on the farm, visit a local Masai family, swimming in the pool and visiting rhinos at the nearby rhino sanctuary.
