Day 1 - Arrive Nairobi, Kenya
Arrive in Nairobi, and then transfer to your luxurious accommodations in one of Kenya’s most famous hotels.
Day 2 - Amboseli National Park
Drive from Nairobi to Amboseli National Park and your tented safari camp beneath Mount Kilimanjaro. The elephant population is prolific here. Amid acacia woodland, scrub brush, freshwater swamps and open plains, watch for buffalo, hippos and waterfowl.
Day 3 - Amboseli National Park
Embark on exciting morning and afternoon game drives, keeping watch for lions and cheetahs as they prepare to hunt. Then, from atop the perch of prehistoric Observation Hill, witness the grasslands and mighty mountain shift colors at sunset.
Day 5 - Private Wildlife Conservancy
Board a flight to the Laikipia Plateau and continue to your private wildlife conservancy. On arrival, drive to your exclusive A&K tented camp, settle in, and then take to the bush for an afternoon game drive. The next day, enjoy a morning game drive highlighted by an up-close visit with the world’s last three northern white rhinos in their heavily guarded enclosure. This afternoon, set out on a bush walk, perhaps sighting a reticulated giraffe or Besia oryx. Optional activities (each at an additional cost) include a visit with the conservancy’s anti-poaching dog unit and a night game drive.
Day 6 - Masai Mara Game Reserve
Fly to the Masai Mara Game Reserve and your award-winning luxury camp. Its 16 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.
Day 8 - Masai Mara Game Reserve
For the next two days, explore the vast plains. The Masai Mara, situated along the Tanzanian border, is on the route of the annual wildebeest migration, one of the reasons it is also home to the country’s largest lion population. Immerse yourself in the lives of locals when you visit the students and teachers of a local school where literacy rates have been improved by an e-reader program that increased access to books — a project supported by A&K Philanthropy. While at Olonana, enjoy a Chef’s Table experience, featuring a cooking demonstration and tasting of local dishes. Later, celebrate a sunset on the Mara with a Scenic Sundowner. On your final evening, enjoy a farewell dinner.
Day 9 - Depart Nairobi
Fly to Nairobi, where a dayroom awaits until your flight.
