Trip Overview

Kenya can get a bad rap for being overrun with tourists but if you know where to go it is remarkably easy to avoid the masses. In terms of variety, the mammals, birds and scenery is very hard to beat.

Easy access from Europe into Nairobi means you can maximise your time on the ground. This itinerary is an epic safari, especially for families and for those that want to leave the crowds behind, enjoy the freedom that Kenya offers and get well off the beaten track.

Laikipia offers a freedom to explore on foot, horseback or camel that is both refreshing and increasingly hard to find, while the Mara probably contains a higher concentration of large predators that anywhere else on the continent – and so the combination of the two areas should satisfy both the desire to get off the beaten track as well as getting a proper big-game fix.

Unexpected Highlights of this itinerary

Often the best safaris involve looking beyond the obvious highlights. It’s about the myriad exhilarating encounters that will make your heart sing. These are encounters that nobody could ever predict, but that make your safari genuinely unique.

Trip Itinerary

Laikipia & the Masai Mara

Laikipia Plateau (6 Nights)
6 Nights

Laikipia Plateau

After a stopover night in Nairobi this itinerary kicks off deep in the game-rich yet little visited, Laikipia Plateau. An area covering almost two million acres running from Mount Kenya in the east to the Rift Valley in the west. Days on safari in Laikipia is an extremely different safari experience to the rest of eastern or southern Africa. Independent ranches open the gates to a plethora of opportunity from walking to horse riding or camel safaris and more. This a proper wildlife playground. 


Laikipia is one of the best locations in Africa right now for spotting wild dog and you have the freedom to track on foot or off-road.


Split your time in Laikipia between two superb small authentic camps – three nights in each. Both camps get you close to nature with a touch of comfort.

Laikipia Wilderness Camp

The wildlife in the surrounding area is supreme, being one of the best wild dog spotting sites Africa has to offer.

Masai Mara & Game Reserves (3 Nights)
3 Nights

Masai Mara & Game Reserves

The Masai Mara is one of the best known wildlife areas in Africa and an area of iconic East Africa scenery – wide open plains with rivers framed under massive skies. For the final three nights in the bush, you’ll be in the Mara North Conservancy that borders the Mara Reserve. Game viewing often starts from camp with prime wildlife habitat surrounding the area. 

The luxury tents are set next to a seasonal stream that attracts fantastic resident birdlife and plains game.   


Kicheche Mara Camp

A well put together, traditional safari camp, and it’s somewhere you’ll get excellent game viewing and comfortable accommodation.
