Day 2: Nairobi | Intimate Animal Encounters

Begin the day at the Karen Blixen Museum in her former home. View many of the author’s original belongings and the bucolic setting where Out of Africa was filmed. Continue to the Giraffe Centre sanctuary to witness semi-tame warthogs and hand-feed the gentle, endangered Rothschild giraffes. Later, at the Daphne Sheldrick Animal Orphanage, learn how orphaned wild animals, such as elephants and rhinos, are reintroduced to the wild. While there, “adopt” an elephant. This evening, attend a welcome dinner.

Days 5-6: Lewa Wildlife Conservancy | Tented Luxury

Board a flight to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a harbor for endangered black rhinos, big cats and elephants. Drive to your tented camp in the scenic Northern Frontier District, set within a private wildlife conservancy and rhino sanctuary. Take to the bush this afternoon and tomorrow, in search of northern species, such as the reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, beisa oryx, Somali ostrich and the long-necked gerenuk, which stands on its hind legs to feed. You may also encounter Grant’s gazelles and dik-diks, roaming amid leopards and lions. Consider taking a walking safari, optional horseback ride or camel ride (additional cost), amenities not possible in game reserves or national parks.

Fly to the Masai Mara Game Reserve and your award-winning luxury camp. Its 14 elegant tents feature four-poster beds and verandas overlooking a private stretch of the Mara River, where hippos wallow. After a late-afternoon game drive, return to camp for dinner.
