Day 1 Nairobi:

Clients are met on arrival by an Origins driver and transferred to the historic Norfolk Hotel. Older than the Ritz and younger than the Savoy, no other hotel in Kenya has as rich a history as the Norfolk. Originally built in 1904 as a watering hole for the settlers, it has matured gracefully and, since its recent acquisition by the Fairmont Hotel Group, has undergone extensive refurbishment.

1 overnight Fairmont Norfolk Hotel


Days 2 – 4 Samburu National Reserve:

After breakfast you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to the arid frontier territory of Samburu – remote, beautiful and extremely dry. On arrival you will be met and transferred to Samburu Intrepids Camp, a charming tented camp inside the reserve. You spend the next two days exploring the Reserve which offers incredible scenery, cultural immersion and game viewing opportunities in a balmy climate.

3 overnights Samburu Intrepids Camp


Days 5 & 6 Lewa Downs / Laikipia Plateau:

Today you drive to the foothills of Mount Kenya to explore a private wildlife conservancy on the Laikipia plateau. You will spend 2 nights here at the Lewa Safari Camp. The 45,000-acre Lewa Wildlife situated on the Northern foothills of Mount Kenya is one of very few private ranches in the world where you can see such a remarkable variety of wildlife and their interaction with each other in a natural habitat.

2 overnights Lewa Safari Camp

Days 7 & 8 Lake Nakuru National Park:

After breakfast you leave the Mt Kenya region and return southwards, dropping down the escarpment to the floor of the Great Rift Valley. You arrive at this beautiful park in the mid-afternoon, in time for a cool drink and a chance to stretch your legs.

Lake Nakuru is world famous for, and was created a National Park to protect, its stunning flocks of Lesser Flamingo, which literally turn its shores pink. Its birdlife is rich: a beacon for leading ornithologists, scientists and wildlife filmmakers. It is easily accessible, lying immediately south of Nakuru Township.

2 overnights Mbweha Camp

Days 9 - 11 Mara National Reserve:

Today it's an early start as you head off towards the Maasai Mara, passing Lake Naivasha and on across the Valley floor towards these famous open plains, teeming with game. Your driver will explain the route and points of interest as you go. You will stop off for lunch en-route, arriving at Camp in the afternoon.

3 overnights Mara Intrepids Camp


Day 12 Nairobi & Depart:

After breakfast you catch the scheduled flight to Nairobi.   You will be met and transferred to the conveniently located   Panari Hotel for lunch and an afternoon at leisure to rest and repack before you transfer to the airport for your international flight departure.
