KENYA LUXURY SAFARI
KLFS6 - 10 days / 9 nights

'Luxuriant' best defines this safari starts out in a unique location in the safari capital of the world and flies to some of the country's most stunning safari spots. On arrival, the safari heads to the peripheral ridges of the enchanting Nairobi National Park. On the second day, the safari soars northeast to the Mathews Range; a rarely visited area of the so-called 'Northern Frontier District' of Kenya. From here it begins to journey back southwest to offer a couple of nights under the stars in the wild and very beautiful Laikipia. From Laikipia to the shores of Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake and the highest of the string of lakes that glitter down the vast trench of the Great Rift Valley. The final leg of the safari is set to experience Kenya's most popular game reserve - The Masai Mara.

Day 1: Arrival in Nairobi

Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to The Emakoko, a lodge artfully built into the side of a valley on the Mbagathi River, which borders the Nairobi National Park. The lodge is an excellent start and finish point for any safari, as it is set in a unique wildlife environment.

About Nairobi National Park - The only city centre national park in the world
The oldest of Kenya's National Parks, the first National Park to be established in East Africa and the jewel in the crown of Kenya's wildlife tourism portfolio, Nairobi National Park is unique. No other capital city in the world can boast a natural wilderness park, teeming with wildlife and home to over 400 species of birds - just ten minutes from the city centre.

 

Day 2: Mathews Ranges

After breakfast, transfer to the Wilson Airport - Nairobi's private internal airport. Charter Northeast to the Mathews Range, also known as the Lenkiyio Hills ranging about 150 km long, oriented north-south. You will be met by your camp representative and checked-in to the remote, exclusive and delightfully luxurious Sarara Camp for lunch, dinner and overnight. The camp offers just six ultra luxurious tents, each positioned to maximise the stunning views of the Mathews Range and the water hole.

About Mathews Range
A rarely visited area of the so-called 'Northern Frontier District' of Kenya, The Mathews Range is impressively wild hill country with Mathew Peak rising to 2375 m. Lower down, the mountains are heavily cloaked in forest and thick bush; unusual vegetation includes ‘living fossil' cycad plants, giant cedars and podocarpus. The area is home to elephants and other large mammals.

After breakfast, enjoy the day exploring the northern wilderness: escorted and guided game walks, game stalking, natural swimming pool, bird watching, bush picnics and visit to local Samburu families. All meals and overnight at the camp.

 

Day 4: Laikipia

After breakfast, fly from the mountain ranges to Northern Laikipia where you will be met by your lodge representative, who will take you to Loisaba Wilderness. Consisting of the Loisaba Lodge, Loisaba House and Loisaba Cottage, the Loisaba Wilderness stands at the centre of a 61,000 acre wilderness - remote, romantic and evocative. Here the stage is set for an experience of a lifetime - a night under the stars!

The ‘Star Bed' Experience
Loisaba is world-renowned for having originated the unique experience of spending a night beneath the star canopy on a ‘Star Bed'. Star Beds are charismatic, hand built double beds, cloaked in mosquito netting, and raised on wooden platforms, which are located either overlooking the Kiboko Dam or beside the Ewaso N'giro River.

Right on the equator with no light pollution whatsoever, the Loisaba (Loisaba means ‘Galaxy') star canopy is glorious indeed. The Star Bed is very comfortable (crisp linen, warm quilt, additional blankets, thick mosquito netting, hurricane lamps) and provided with torch and star maps. Early morning tea will be served by your warriors at a time to suit you.

Here you have a choice of staying the night in the eight-story Dodo's Tower which is one of the most luxurious and private Kenyan homes or sleep in the magnificent 1930's Elizabethan manor house which remains a relic of Africa's colonial past - a house so cozy you will find it hard to leave.

It also offers the best chance of spotting a leopard in the wild. Other predators include cheetah and spotted hyena. Sundowners can be taken in camp or in a scenic location and are followed by dinner.
