Amboseli National Park | Snowtopped Kilimanjaro
Fly from Nairobi to Amboseli National Park and continue to your luxury tented safari camp at the base of soaring, snowtopped Mount Kilimanjaro.

Amboseli National Park | Game Drives Till Sunset
Spend the day on exciting game drives, looking for lions and cheetahs as they hide from the heat or amble out to hunt. See the warm, golden sun set over the grasslands and mighty mountain from atop prehistoric Observation Hill.
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, on horseback 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.
Nanyuki | Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club
Drive to Nanyuki, stopping en route at Nanyuki Spinners and Weavers, a project aimed at empowering women to enjoy sustainable livelihoods. Arrive at Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club. Check in and spend an afternoon at leisure, perhaps enjoying a swim in the heated pool or choosing one of the many optional activities available, such as horseback riding on the slopes of Mount Kenya, golfing or trout fishing.
Masai Mara Game Reserve | Relax in Tented Luxury
Fly to the Masai Mara Game Reserve, site of your tranquil, award-winning 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.

Over the next two days, intersect the boundless plains by safari vehicle. The Masai Mara, an essential part of the greater Serengeti ecosystem, hosts the annual wildebeest migration. Never short on thrills, this quintessential landscape of rolling grasslands and acacia savannas hosts the largest lion population, as well as zebras, spotted hyenas, black-backed jackals, hippos, giraffes, elands and wildebeest. You may pay a private visit to a Maasai village to learn about local customs and daily life.
