Day 4: Lewa Conservancy - Masai Mara

A representative from your lodge will pick you up and transfer you between the lodge and airstrip.

Take this scheduled flight from Lewa Conservancy to Masai Mara.  This flight takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. On all services the luggage allowance is 15 kilos in soft bags. This allowance shall include all hand baggage.

A representative from your lodge will pick you up and transfer you between the lodge and airstrip.

Head out in the afternoon on a game drive with others at the lodge. As the sun descends and the plains begin to cool, game emerges from the shelter of the shade and becomes more active. See if you can spot a herd of elephants as they approach watering holes and rivers to cool down with a drink and mud bath.


Elephants are the largest living land animals on Earth today. When pregnant, an elephant's gestation period is 22 months, the longest of any land animal. At birth, an elephant calf typically weighs 105 kilograms (230 lb)! They typically live for 50 to 70 years, but the oldest recorded elephant lived to the age of 82. The smallest elephants, about the size of a calf or a large pig, were a prehistoric species that lived on the island of Crete. Aristotle once said the elephant was "the beast which passeth all others in wit and mind." The word "elephant" has its origins in the Greek word ἐλέφας, meaning "ivory" or "elephant". Today African elephants are the largest of their species. Healthy adult elephants have no natural predators, although lions may take calves or weak individuals. They are, however, threatened by human intrusion and poaching.

Accommodation: Mahali Mzuri

The exclusive Mahali Mzuri camp is located within the Motorogi Conservancy in the northern region of Kenya's famous Maasai Mara eco-system, at a picturesque elevation of 1700m above sea level. Perched on the side of a lush valley, the camp provides guests with expansive views over the wildlife saturated, rolling Mara plains.  The camp is strategically placed as so guests can observe the abundant game in the area, ideal for those looking to take advantage of the annual 'Great Migration', which sees up to one million wildebeest undertake a journey of roughly 1,600km through this conservation area.  The camp features luxury tented suites which are very spacious and are equipped with en-suite bathing facilities and quality amenities.

Day 5: Masai Mara

Today you will set out on an early morning game drive with your expert guide and others from your lodge. The Masai Mara is home to a diverse range of animals. The park is home to the Big Five (Lion, Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo and Leopard) and numerous other species including Thomson's and Grant's Gazelles, Impalas, Topics, Hartebeest, Zebra and Masai Giraffe. It's also home to over 450 species of birdlife; among them are vultures, marabou storks, secretary birds, hornbills, crowned cranes, ostriches, long-crested eagles and African pygmy-falcons.

Sign up for optional activities (not included in tour price); guided nature walk, hot air balloon ride, cultural tours and more. You can also arrange to volunteer for the day at Mara West and pay any associated fees directly on-site. Volunteer activities range from individual to community projects.

This afternoon, head out on an exciting game drive with your guide and others from your lodge. Today keep your eyes open for giraffe.


The giraffe is the tallest living terrestrial animal in the world. Its specific name refers to its camel-like face and patches of color on a light background, which bears a vague resemblance to a leopard's spots. The giraffe is also noted for its extremely long neck and legs and prominent horns. It stands 5–6 m (16–20 f) tall and has an average weight of 1,200 kg (2,600 lb) for males and 830 kg (1,800 lb) for females. The giraffe's scattered range extends from Chad in the north to South Africa in the south and from Niger in the west to Somalia in the east. Giraffes usually inhabit savannas, grasslands, and open woodlands. They prefer areas with plenty of acacia trees, which are important food sources, and can browse at heights that most other herbivores cannot reach. While adults are nearly invulnerable to predation, lions, leopards, spotted hyenas and wild dogs prey on baby calves. Giraffes commonly gather together to eat or socialize for a few hours and then roam off to graze separately. Males establish social hierarchies through "neckings," which are combat bouts where the neck is used as a weapon and they butt their necks against each other. Dominant males gain mating access to females, who bear the sole responsibility for raising the young.

Day 6: Masai Mara

Early this morning you will meet up with others at the lodge for your game drive. Today, see if you can spot the elusive leopard.

The smallest of the four "big cats," the leopard was once distributed across eastern and southern Asia and Africa, from Siberia to South Africa, but its range of distribution has decreased radically because of hunting and loss of habitat. It is now chiefly found in sub-Saharan Africa. Due to its declining range and population, it is listed as a "Near Threatened" species. Compared to other members of the Felidae family, the leopard has relatively short legs and a long body with a large skull. It is similar in appearance to the jaguar, but is smaller and more slightly built. The species' success in the wild is in part due to its opportunistic hunting behavior, its adaptability to various habitats, its ability to run at speeds approaching 58 kilometres per hour (36 mph), its unequaled ability to climb trees even when carrying a heavy carcass, and its notorious ability for stealth. The leopard consumes virtually any animal that it can hunt down and catch. These stealthy animals are one of the prized sightings you may see in Masai Mara

Your expert guide will meet you and other guests at your lodge for an afternoon game viewing drive in and around the Masai Mara. See if you can spot lions in the park today. Lions live for 10-14 years in the wild. They typically inhabit savannah and grassland, although they may take to bush and forest. Lions are unusually social compared to other cats. A pride of lions consists of related females and offspring and a small number of adult males. Groups of female lions typically hunt together. Highly distinctive, the male lion is easily recognised by its mane, and its face is one of the most widely recognised animal symbols in human culture.


The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats, 3 of which are found in Africa - lion, leopard, cheetah. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, lions are the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Until about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. They were found in most of Africa, across Eurasia from Western Europe to India, and in the Americas from the Yukon to Peru. However, the lion is a vulnerable species, having seen a possibly irreversible population decline of thirty to fifty percent over the past two decades in its African range. Outside of designated reserves and national parks, you will rarely, if ever, see a lion. Although the cause of the decline is not fully understood, habitat loss and conflicts with humans are currently the greatest causes of concern. Reserves have helped to boost the lion population and help to bring back their numbers.

Day 7: Masai Mara - Chyulu Hills

A representative from your lodge will pick you up and transfer you between the lodge and airstrip.

Enjoy your flight between Masai Mara and Tsavo West, Chyulu airstrip via Nairobi. 

A representative from your lodge will pick you up and transfer you between the lodge and airstrip. If time allows, your expert guide will spend some time on game drive before dropping you off.

Imagine…275,000 acres of scenic Africa, a place where the “Big Five” can be found free and wild, without tourists in mini buses or a set schedule.  Imagine…travelling across the archetypal savannahs of East Africa in an open 4x4 game drive vehicle without limitation, feeling the rhythm of Africa beneath your feet as you walk with expert trackers, or horseback riding with Mt. Kilimanjaro as a backdrop.  

Imagine…exploring this paradise, and then coming home to one of the most luxurious small lodges in East Africa where a hot bath, in or outdoor shower, or private swimming pool await – all with inspiring views across the wildlife filled plains, plus delicious food, charming hosts and world-class service. This is Ol Donyo Lodge.  Enjoy full days in the Chyulu Hills with plenty of activities provided by the lodge.

Each day activities are up to you. A typical day at Ol Donyo Wuas would be as follows: You are accompanied by the local guides on all activities and they impart plenty of knowledge about the area's flora and fauna, history, culture and much more. Start with a cup of tea or coffee as the early morning sun glistens on the peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro. As morning breaks, head out on horseback, on foot or in one of the specially converted open top Land Rovers to view the wildlife. This is generally the best time of day for game viewing; oryx, gazelle, gerenuk, zebra, eland, giraffe and wildebeest roam the grassy plains, always on the lookout for cheetah and lion. Either enjoy a bush breakfast with a leisurely walk, ride or drive back to the lodge, or breakfast at the lodge, having perhaps visited a local Maasai manyatta (village). Relax and enjoy lunch around the swimming pool or head up for a picnic up in the hills.  After tea head out for more driving, walking or horse riding out on the plains, this is the perfect time for observing predators in action, and as the sun slips over the horizon we find a suitable spot to reminisce on the day with a sundowner. Back at the lodge after a hot shower and a candlelit three-course dinner, relax with a sky full of stars, the ever-present sounds of the African night, maybe a lion roaring, a hyena laughing or an elephant rumbling, as the animals keep track of each other, further enhancing this magical wilderness environment.

Accommodation: Ol Donyo Lodge

On the slopes of the Chyulu Hills National Park, with sweeping views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Ol Donyo Lodge is located in one of the most spectacular and scenic locations in all of East Africa. Situated between Amboseli and Tsavo West in Southeast Kenya, the 275 000 acre Mbirikani Group Ranch offers the Amboseli National Park experience – minus the crowds - in utter privacy. In the path of traditional wildlife migration routes, it is a lodge rich in history, passion and conservation. The 20-bed lodge, inclusive of the four bed private bush home, was rebuilt and redesigned in 2008. Every view looks out across the vast savannah and onward to Mount. Kilimanjaro. No two suites or villas are the same, but what is consistent is the attention to detail, the comfortable yet utterly luxurious décor, and the tradition of greatness. Regarded as one of the most attractive lodges in East Africa, Ol Donyo Wuas is a place to call home for as long as possible.

Day 8: Chyulu Hills

Large populations of wildlife find their habitat in and around the Ol Donyo Lodge area. While the "Big Five" are here - rhino, elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo - they are quite elusive. With that being said, cheetah, elephant, fringe-eared oryx, gerenuk, and giraffe make for easy viewing. The variety of birdlife and plant species, combined with the wildlife, creates an astounding experience.


The real exclusivity of Ol Donyo Lodge is apparent when out exploring the land. The entire area is reserved exclusively for Ol Donyo Lodge guests – no other tourists, no fleets of mini-buses – it’s private, pure and wild. Each day is different; there is no set routine. The ODL experience is there for the making – a safari of the guest’s design. While it may be tempting to laze around the lovely rooms and bask in the sun next to the pool, the diverse activities at Ol Donyo Lodge are equally as alluring. There is arguably no other lodge in Africa with this wide a range of options for the safari enthusiast.


Game drives are offered both during the day and night, in open 4x4 vehicles. Early evening drives are particularly appealing for those interested in spotting the more elusive nocturnal species. Since Ol Donyo is not situated in a game reserve, vehicles may go off-road and follow wildlife at a respectful distance over any terrain possible.

The Maasai of the Mbirikani Group Ranch are as natural a part of the area as the wildlife. After years as partners on the land, Richard & Tara Bonham have a very unique ‘second home’ with the Maasai. Guests are able to visit the Maasai villages on the ranch, without a sense of voyeurism. It is an authentic experience, giving guests insight into the culture and traditions of the Maasai. It is often a highlight of the stay at Ol Donyo Wuas. The Maasai do charge guests for taking photos.

Day 9: Chyulu Hills

The Chyulu Hills and its diverse ecosystem lend itself perfectly to horseback safaris. From the mist forests, to the open plains, to the dense woodland, a horse navigates the landscape gracefully. To come along for the ride, and experience wildlife on horseback, is an experience not to be missed. The team of 20 horses – ranging in size, and for different riders – takes you safely through the ranch with excellent prowess. Many people who are familiar with excellent horseback safaris elsewhere in Africa have stated, "This is the best horse riding country in Africa." Staff take pride in the training and care of the horses and have safaris for all levels. For guests of the lodge, horseback safaris are a full or half-day activity.

Imagine being at eye-level with one of Ol Donyo Wuas’ 100-pound tusker elephants, or looking at the knobby knees of a giraffe, all while sitting peacefully and absorbing the intimacy of this precious moment. It is a privilege. This is Ol Donyo Wuas’ “log-jam” hide, a mass of heavy logs piled about five feet high and 3 feet thick, where guests are able to safely view wildlife at exceptionally close range at the lodge’s waterhole. After a visit to the hide, guests learn so much about the wildlife, and elephants in particular, as they are able to watch interactions and movements closely. It is almost like briefly being a part of the herd. The “log-jam” hide, located just a short walk from the lodge’s main area, can be a short activity at mid-day, or it can be a full half-day activity.

    We wanted the full safari experience and Kensington was able to deliver it. We had the perfect mix of tents and lodges and honestly can say we saw about everything we could have in our time there. Our Kensington guide Elijah was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was basically a member of the family by the end of the trip. The entire trip was planned out perfectly. Thanks to Kensington and we hope to travel with them again in the future.

    We had such a tremendous trip! We covered a lot of geography, plants and animals - both aquatic and land based. Every guide we had was knowledgeable and very personable. When Grootbos and then Madikwe found out it was my husband's birthday - our guide at Grootbos "Nita" arranged a private party for him (and us) and our chef and butler at Little Madikwe, Violet and Patience, baked cupcakes and got a small group together to sing happy birthday - in English and Afrikaans! We could never have seen so much on our own. The knowledge we gained about South African people, places, animals and history made this our trip of a lifetime! Thank you!

    We had the most amazing time on our trip. Very grateful to Kensington for organizing all the pick ups and details so we didn't have to think or worry - we could just enjoy ourselves. Will absolutely recommend this trip to family and friends and hope to use Kensington again in the future for our next adventure. Thanks so much!

    From the minute we landed, everything was taken care of. Every driver and guide we had were very friendly and efficient. The highlight of our trip was our stay at Kapama Southern Camp, everything about this place was amazing. We were all sad to leave and would love to return there in the future. Would highly recommend booking as many people there as possible.

    Madagascar is a very poor country with spotty infrastructure. We used Kensington for their knowledge of the area and their resources and we are very pleased. Our driver for the trip was very professional and knowledgeable of the area and the guide that we used for the rainforest walks was equally knowledgeable and professional. Bari, our guide, had a passion for the area and wanted to make sure we were able to get the best picture of each sighting. Franco, our driver, had a passion for his country and the sights and he was a definite asset on our trip.

    Guides were incredibly well-informed and taught my wife and I about the environment, animals, and culture. Our tour would have just been commonplace, without them.

    Going with Kensington Tours was a great decision. The transfers between resorts was handled very professionally and extremely smooth. I will plan my next trip to South Africa with Kensington. Money well spent!
