Lewa Wildlife Conservancy | Slumber Under Canvas
Fly to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, home of big cats, elephants and endangered black rhinos. Your tented camp is tucked into the Northern Frontier District, in a private wildlife conservancy and rhino sanctuary. Take to the bush this afternoon, watching closely for indigenous northern species, such as the beisa oryx, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra and the unusual long-necked gerenuk, which stands on its hind legs to feed. Look, too, for Grant’s gazelles, dik-diks, elands and impala as they, along with majestic leopards and lions, roam the vast landscape. After dinner, sleep securely in elegantly appointed tents, enveloped by the sounds of the African night.
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy | Rare & Unique Species
Today, spend the morning and afternoon viewing game in this pristine conservancy. Whether you opt to set out in safari vehicles or on foot, keep your eyes trained for lions, black and white rhinos, elephants, oryx, and aquatic sitatungas — swamp-dwelling antelopes. Relax on your private veranda, and indulge in gourmet meals and remote sundowners, prepared by your attentive staff.
Masai Mara Game Reserve | Relax in Tented Luxury
Fly to the Masai Mara Game Reserve, site of your tranquil, permanently tented luxury camp. It features 14 elegant tents with verandas offering uninterrupted views of a hippo-populated, private stretch of the Mara River. Take a late-afternoon game drive. Return to camp for dinner.
Masai Mara Game Reserve | Big Game Country
Explore the open savanna, woodlands and tree-fringed rivers of the Masai Mara with morning and afternoon game drives. Patient tracking may reveal leopards retrieving kills from acacia branches, or elephants protecting their young from opportunistic lions. With 583 square miles supporting huge numbers of bird and mammal species, game viewing is never dull in the Mara.
Masai Mara Game Reserve | A Parting Glimpse
Delve deeper in to the Mara with a final day of game drives. Today affords a final chance to sight the crafty species that may have eluded you on this epic journey. Later, pay a private visit to a Maasai village to learn about local customs and daily life.
