In the Shadow of Kilimanjaro - A Family Safari

FURTHER JOURNEYS IN KENYA  brown-arrow-right.png

Day 1 - Arrive Nairobi
Arrive in Nairobi where you will be met by our Red Savannah representative and chauffeured to Giraffe Manor where your Kenya safari begins.

Giraffe Manor is perfect for easing into a safari. A peaceful retreat, it has become an icon of Nairobi's historical landscape. Found in the middle of a 140 acre giraffe sanctuary, it is not uncommon to be greeted at breakfast by a resident giraffe, having put its head through the open window. Always keen to be hand fed, these endangered Rothschild giraffe help to produce unforgettable memories.

Overnight: Giraffe Manor.

Day 2 – Nairobi – Amboseli National Park
Today you will fly to Amboseli National Park, spectacularly located at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro, where you will spend the next two nights at Tortilis Camp. The views of the snow-capped Mt Kilimanjaro are simply breath-taking and the game viewing in the 30,000 acre game concession is equally magnificent.

Overnight: Tortilis Camp.

Day 3 – Amboseli National Park
One of Kenya’s premier game viewing areas Amboseli is known for its big -tusk elephant herds, with a resident population of over 1,500 elephants. Explore the park with two game drives per day where you can also see lion, zebra, wildebeest and buffalo. Or, take a walk outside the park with a Masai guide and learn about the medicinal uses of the local flora.

Overnight: Tortilis Camp.

Day 4 – Amboseli National Park – Ol Malo
After breakfast you will fly to Ol Malo, a 5,000 acre private property situated in the deserts of Samburuland in Northern Kenya. You will spend the next three nights at Ol Malo enjoying the endless amount of fun activities that they have to offer from leaning how to survive in the bush like a Samburu warrior to experiencing their unique “roof seat” game drive vehicles.

Overnight: Ol Malo.

Days 5 - 6 - Ol Malo
Ol Malo has been carefully built from local stone and wood and the focus is dedicated to the stunning view which can be seen throughout the lodge, but is particularly dramatic from their infinity pool. The camp organises horse-riding and game driving in the local area, or trips to visit one of the local Samburu villages which they help to look after in the area. Hosted by the wonderfully informal Francombe family, this home-from-home experience is also great for camel treks, helicopter day trips and fly-camping.

Overnight: Ol Malo.

Day 7 – Ol Malo – Masai Mara
After breakfast you will be transferred to the Ol Malo airstrip for your scheduled flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival you will be transferred to Serian Camp which lies in the private Mara North Conservancy. The Mara North Conservancy is a very exclusive part of the Mara and is home to just eleven safari camps and offers a more personalised safari experience far from the madding crowd.

Overnight: Serian ‘The Original’

Days 8  - 9 - Masai Mara
Serian Camp has a highly regarded reputation for its knowledgeable and personable guides. Games drives are the focus of any safari in the Mara but at Serian you will receive your own exclusive vehicle, private spotter and a guide. Expect to see all the “Big Five” game and if you are in the Mara North Conservancy between August and October then you also have a good chance to witness the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra.

Overnight: Serian ‘The Original’

Day 10 - Masai Mara – Kenya Coast
Fly from the Masai Mara to the south coast. Upon arrival you will be transferred to Kinondo Kwetu. Gently lapped by the warm sea waters of the Indian Ocean, Kinondo Kwetu is a tropical paradise. Located on a private white sandy beach south of Diani, this Indian Ocean beach hotel is the perfect place to unwind after a safari.  

Overnight: Kinondo Kwetu

Days 11 - 13  - Masai Mara – Kenya Coast
For the next three days you can relax in the sun and swim in the warm crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean; choose from an impressive selection of activities including water sports, game drives, sailing, scuba diving, tennis and yoga; or get in touch with your cultural side by visiting Kinondo village and learning about the local people and how they live.

Overnight: Kinondo Kwetu
