Fly north from Nairobi to the rhino-rich landscape of Laikipia. Head to the rolling grasslands of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, home to a wonderful array of wildlife, including endangered Grevy’s zebras.
Stay at the beautifully situated Lewa Safari Camp, which embraces its wild surroundings. Immersed in the safari feel of this tented camp, explore the protected areas that surround it. Talented guides make the most of every encounter and their knowledge of this rugged environment is second to none.
Continue to the Masai Mara, where safaris were born. Here, avoid the crowds of the reserve and head to the exclusive Mara North Conservancy. Stay beneath a grove of fig and elephant pepper trees, at the aptly named Elephant Pepper Camp. Classically themed, this intimate camp epitomises safari style; the natural surroundings blend perfectly with the elegantly crafted tents.
Explore the wild conservancy landscape, in search of leopards, cheetahs and lions. During migration season, watch as the terrain is flooded with waves of zebras and wildebeests. And take guided bush walks across the plains, learning about the quirks and intricacies of this fascinating ecosystem.
Leave the safari circuit behind for the sandy beaches, weather-beaten dhows and ungainly palms of the Swahili Coast. Embrace the comfort and tranquillity of the AfroChic Diani - set slightly back from the waters of the Indian Ocean. Perfect for relaxation or exploration, this quiet retreat features direct access to the beach and a network of verdant gardens.
Alternatively, the ocean offers a myriad of more adventurous activities. Venture out on the waves, exploring above and below the surface. Amongst the available options are diving, kite surfing and snorkelling.
