Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival in Nairobi, you will be met and transferred to Wilson Airport in time for your light aircraft flight to Nanyuki. You will be met by your guide and driven back to your camp in time for lunch. You can settle in before heading out on an afternoon safari in the excellent Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Keep an eye out for reticulated giraffe, Grévy's zebra and gerenuk antelope, along with the rhino that the reserve is famous for.

  • Spend today on safari from the beautiful Kicheche Laikipia Camp where you can enjoy morning and afternoon safari as well as night drives and walks. All the tents overlook a large waterhole so excellent sightings are common even from the camp.

  • Another day to spend exploring the wilderness of the Laikipia Plateau on guided excursions from the camp. Choose from walking, morning and afternoon safari, night drives and visits to the chimpanzee and rhino sanctuaries nearby.

  • Today, you will be transferred to the airstrip at Nanyuki in time for your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to Kicheche Bush Camp for the next four nights, enjoying some fabulous wildlife viewing en route. Once you have settled in and enjoyed some lunch, there is some time to relax before you go on a late afternoon safari to explore this wildlife-rich area.

  • In the Mara, you can enjoy morning and afternoon safaris from your camp as well as short walks, night drives and sundowners out in the open. As the camp is situated in a private conservancy within the Mara, the number of camps and vehicles here is strictly limited, giving you by far the best safari experience away from the busier areas of the park.

  • The Masai Mara is big cat country, so keep your eyes peeled for lion, cheetah and, of course, the very elusive leopard. You will be able to enjoy walks with local Maasai guides on the open plains.

  • Your final full day on safari from Kicheche Naboisho Camp, which you can spend exploring this beautiful reserve. The Masai Mara has some of the best populations of wildlife in Africa, so make the most of your time here.

  • This morning, there should be time for one last safari before you return to Nairobi by a light aircraft. On arrival in Nairobi, you will be greeted at the domestic airport and transferred across to the international airport, stopping for a leisurely lunch at a restaurant en route (lunch is payable locally). You will then check in for your early evening flight to Zanzibar. On arrival, you will be met by a driver and private vehicle who will transfer you across the island to the beautiful palm-fringed east coast where you can relax after your safari and enjoy the activities on offer.

  • At leisure at Pongwe Beach Hotel — you can spend the day relaxing and unwinding here on the beautiful stretch of beach, or read a book under the shade of a palm tree by the pool. If you're feeling more active, you can easily arrange diving or snorkeling along with other excursions to explore the island through the reception.

  • One of our favorite things to do in Zanzibar is to visit one of the small-scale spice farms on the island — you get a really hands-on experience tasting and smelling the spices for which the island is famous.

  • Another area to explore on Zanzibar is the enchanting Jozani Forest, where you can see the rare red Kirk's colobus monkeys. These monkeys are endemic to the island and are really entertaining to watch leap and play in the trees.

  • For something completely different to the beach, you could head into Stone Town one day for a day trip — the town is located on the west coast and is a busy and bustling town. You can hire a guide to help you explore the narrow alleyways and cobbled streets, learning about the town's fascinating past with a rich and dramatic history as a center of colonial exploration and of the East African slave trade. It's also a great opportunity to pick up any souvenirs.

  • You will be transferred to the airport today for your onward flights.
