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 cafe culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Centre and most notably just 20 minutes from the city centre wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve. Make sure you pay a visit to the Elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

DAY 2: ELEWANA SAND RIVER MASAI MARA, MASAI MARA

Masai Mara

The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Masai Mara is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.

Day Itinerary

After breakfast, transfer to Wilson Airport to connect your scheduled flight to Masai Mara National Reserve. Upon arrival, you will be met by Elewana Sand river driver guide who will transfer you the the camp for lunch. Late afternoon private game drives in Masai Mara.

Dinner and overnight at Elewana Sand River Masai Mara.

Situated along the banks of a river from which it has taken its name, Elewana Sand River Masai Mara is located within the Masai Mara Natonal Reserve in Kenya on a secluded and picturesque site. The camp enjoys stunning views over the Sand River and out to the neighbouring grassy hills and plains of Tanzania. The camp sits on the migration route for the millions of wildebeest, zebra and Thompson’s gazelle that move between Serengeti and Maasai Mara every year. Guests enjoy the privilege of exclusive views of the plains and hills dotted with thousands of animals as well as being in the thick of the excitement of frenetic and famed river crossings, all from the comfort of camp. Comprising of 16 tented accommodations, Elewana Sand River Masai Mara replicates the heyday of exclusive permanent tented camps of the late 1920’s. Divided into two separate but adjoining campsites of 10 and 6 tents, each area possessing its own designated dining and public areas, Elewana Sand River Masai Mara provides an atmosphere of exclusivity and class.

DAY 6: GOVERNORS’ CAMP, MASAI MARA

Masai Mara

One of Kenya’s undisputed natural highlights is the Masai Mara National Reserve, which sprawls across more than 1500km² of the country’s southwest. The park protects a phenomenal array of game, including charismatic species such as elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo, as well as crocodile and hippopotamus in the Mara River. The birdlife is no less impressive, with over 450 resident bird species. However, the true highlight here is the Great Migration, recognized as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. To survive the dry months of July to September, some 1.7 million wildebeest migrate from the parched plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Along with much smaller numbers of antelope buffalo and zebra, they move to the more forgiving grasslands of the Masai Mara. In their wake come predators such as lion, hyena and cheetah, for whom these giant herds are an easy source of prey.

Day Itinerary

After breakfast, road transfer with game enroute from Elewana Sand River to Governors Camp, lunch at Governors Camp, late afternoon private game drives in Masai Mara National Reserve. Lunch, dinner and overnight at Governors Camp.

Overnight in Governors’ Camp

The award-winning Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, its waters teeming with birdlife, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Some of the camp’s tents enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River; others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Created in 1972 Governors’ Camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best. Everything is under canvas and all tents have ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and a dining tent with views over the plains.
