Safari Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival Nairobi, Transfer Macushla House

Touching down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi will mark the beginning of your exclusive African adventure. After meeting your guide in the arrivals hall, you will drive into Nairobi’s leafy suburbs of Langata, arriving at the Macushla House. Founded by an Irish family, this property offers the amenities of a hotel in a personal and warm home environment. With two cozy lounges, a large covered verandah and a swimming pool nestled within a lush garden, this will be the perfect place to unwind after a long day of travel.

Depending on your arrival time and energy level, it may be of interest to explore the neighborhood before joining the lodge for dinner. The hotel is located within walking distance of Giraffe Manor, a conservation site for the Rothschild Giraffe. Here, you can visit an iconic colonial house – currently operating as a lodge – in addition to visiting the AFEW Giraffe Center.

Alternatively, the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage is only a short drive away, and gives visitors the opportunity to watch the adorable orphaned baby elephants interact with their caregivers and each other twice daily. For those interested in absorbing some Kenyan history and culture, the Karen Blixen and Nairobi Museums are only a short drive away, as are a number of craft centers. You will return to the lodge in time for a fresh and local evening meal, served within an intimate dining room, before returning to your private suite for the evening.

Overnight: Macushla House
Day 2-6

Siana Conservancy - Maasai Mara, Enkorok Mara Camp

This morning following breakfast at Macushla, you will be driven to Wilson Airport in Nairobi to catch your shared charter flight to the 29,000-acre Siana Conservancy on the border of the Masai Mara National Reserve. A new representative will greet you on the bush airstrip, driving you through the conservancy and your camp in time for lunch. The camp itself is located in a quiet corner of this private conservancy, giving guests total exclusivity and intimacy in this iconic ecosystem.

Enkorok Mara Camp is set on 30 acres of private land in Masai Mara Siana’s Conservancy. The camp overlooks the scenic Oloolotikoshi Hills and the spot is perfect for sundowners for guests relaxing after a game drive with a captivating sunset. The Camp is set on the banks of Oloirigynyisho River where Zebras, Wildebeests, Elephants, and other wildlife regularly come to drink water. The Masai Mara Reserve Ololaimutia gate is located 2.5 kms from the camp whilst the Keekorok Airstrip is 20kms and Sekenani Gate is 25Kms away.

Siana Conservancy shares a border with the Masai Mara and as such, also shares wildlife and landscape. The only difference is that it does not share the throngs of safari vehicles and camera lenses that have come to characterize explorations through this park. Over the coming days, you will have the opportunity to intimately observe a pride of lions as they bask in the shade or a cheetah as it feasts on its most recent kill. As elephants grace the landscapes around you, with giraffes poking their heads out through acacia canopies you will observe an ecosystem that has inspired artists, musicians and conservationists alike.

The Maasai Mara region is home to some of the densest and most prolific wildlife populations, which will make every moment of your game drives a thrill. As you set out in a private vehicle with your guide, you will begin to search for favorite animals while learning of some of the lesser-known species. If your timing is right, you will have the opportunity to drive through enormous herds of thousands of wildebeest, impala and zebra as they reach the northernmost point of their annual migration. Depending on the location of the mobile camp, you may even have the opportunity to venture to the shores of the Mara River, where wildebeest must boldly cross these hippo and crocodile-infested waters.

Accommodation: Enkorok Mara Camp | 5 nights
Day 7

End of Tour, Depart

This morning, following a final breakfast in the mobile camp, you will return to the airstrip for your shared chartered flight back to Nairobi. As you ascend, you will be given a final look at the endless plains of the Masai Mara – possibly spotting a few final herds of wildebeest and zebra dotting the landscape below.

Returning to Nairobi, you will be met by a representative who will either transfer you to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your international departure, or take you to various sightseeing and shopping destinations for your final afternoon. The City Market is a popular place to pick up woodcarvings, drums and plenty of Maasai jewelry. Elementeita Weavers is a fantastic location to pick up high quality woven products, including rugs, carpets and cotton wraps, from a local cooperative. The Bombolulu Workshop and Cultural Center is also worth a visit. This non-profit organization sells high quality crafts and uses the profits to provide vocational training to disabled individuals. It is also possible to spend the afternoon visiting the museums and conservation centers you may not have had time for on your first day in Nairobi.

No matter how you spend the day, you will return to Jomo Kenyatta in time for your international departure. However, for those guests wishing to add on just a few more days in Kenya or East Africa, consider planning a few days along the Indian Ocean for some final rest and relaxation.
