With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by East Africa and would happily talk about Africa’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1 Nairobi

Ole Sereni Nairobi

You will be met on arrival in Kenya’s capital and transferred to a hotel in Nairobi. We have a variety of hotels we recommend, one being Ole Sereni which offers a comfortable stay in Nairobi, with great accessibility to both the international and internal airports.

    Day 2 Masai Mara National Reserve

    Basecamp Masai Mara

    You will be transferred to the domestic airport in time for your light aircraft flight into the Masai Mara. This flight is approximately 60-90 minutes and you will have stunning views from above. As you land on the airstrip, you will be met by your private guide and your safari will begin! You’ll spend the next 3 nights at Basecamp, enjoying a morning and afternoon game drive in the Masai Mara Reserve.

      Day 3 Masai Mara National Reserve

      Basecamp Mara

      A day on safari starts very early – around 5.30-6am with a wake up call and a fresh cup of tea or coffee brought to your room. You head out on game drive from around 6-11am. You then spend the middle part of the day in camp, enjoying a delicious lunch, a relax or siesta at Basecamp. You will then head out again on an afternoon game drive from around 4-7.30pm, before sundowner drinks and dinner.

        Day 4 Masai Mara National Reserve

        Basecamp

        Spend your final day in Basecamp on safari in the Masai Mara Reserve. Hopefully by now you have ticked off a few of the Big Five, but continue to keep an eye out for other sightings that may present themselves.

          Day 5 Masai Mara National Reserve

          Kichwa Tembo Tent

          Today you will transfer to another area of the Masai Mara. Your transfer will be a game drive on route, so you’ll never miss a moment on safari! You will check into Kichwa Tembo Camp which is located on a private conservancy just outside of the Mara Tringle.

            Day 6 Masai Mara National Reserve

            Kichwa Tembo Dinner

            Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives with the guides at Kichwa Tembo. The main draw to this location is that it is on private land, which means the safari feels more exclusive. Only guests from Kichwa Tembo and the sister camps are able to game drive here.

              Day 7 Masai Mara National Reserve

              Kichwa Tembo Dinner

              A final day in Kenya’s Masai Mara! Enjoy every minute of the safari – the game drives, the morning cup of coffee, the sun rising over the savanna, the delicious lunch in camp, the final sundowner and much more! Soak up Kenya’s paradise for your final night, and remember all you have experienced.

                Day 8 Depart

                Kichw Tembo

                This morning you will enjoy a leisurely breakfast in camp before heading to the airstrip. You’ll then fly back to Nairobi, where you can enjoy a day room at a hotel in the city, or go straight to the international airport to fly home!
