Destination: Kenya

Day 1: Nairobi

Meal Basis: Bed & Breakfast

Nairobi is Africa’s 4th largest city and is a vibrant and exciting place and although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief there are some fascinating attractions: its café culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably just 20 minutes from the city centre wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve.

Day 2 - 5: Laikipia Plateau & Lewa Downs

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

Lewa has its roots in the Craig family always farmed with the philosophy that there would always be room for wildlife. As the plight of the black rhino became desperate in Africa, the ranch was converted into a rhino sanctuary and today Lewa spans 61,000 acres, and is home to over 11 percent of Kenya’s black rhino population, over 14 percent of Kenya’s white rhino population and the world’s largest single population of Grevy’s zebra.

Lewa House is set on top of a hill with an engaging panoramic view of the rolling landscape of the Conservancy, and overlooks the luggas (valleys) and hills, with the horizon rising to the eye-catching views of the Mathews range and the sacred mountain of the Samburu, Ol Lolokwe. 

The accommodation at Lewa House is in the form of cottage style rooms which are spread out along the hillside, all looking to the expanse of wilderness to the north. There are 3 of the original (the house was originally a private home) thatched family cottages, each comprising of two en-suite rooms and a large shared veranda. The 4 recently added single room cottages are built with sustainable, ecological principles in mind whilst still being exceptionally comfortable and spacious, with wonderful views across the surrounding landscape.

Day 6 - 9: Masai Mara

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

On the rim of the Great Rift Valley Escarpment, overlooking the Mara Triangle, regarded by many as Africa's finest safari destination with its year-round resident game.The Mara is also home to the annual Great Wildebeest Migration and Angama Mara camp overlooks all of this. A place where the light never sits still. The sun shining through the clouds creates chaotic shadows, ever on the move across the Mara plains.

As a remarkable and relative new comer to the region, the camp offers incredible direct private access into the Mara Triangle and this is where some of the loveliest scenes from the film Out of Africa were filmed.

These properties are highlighted as offering supplement free safaris to solo travellers.
