Day 5: Laikipia - Masai Mara

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

This afternoon, head out on an exciting game drive with your guide and others from your lodge, keeping your eyes peeled for giraffes. Giraffes usually inhabit savannas, grasslands, and open woodlands. They prefer areas with plenty of acacia trees, an important food source, 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. Based on these displays, dominant males gain mating rights to females, who then bear the sole responsibility for raising their young.

Accommodation: Mara Bushtops Camp

A step into Mara Bushtops is a step into a world where nature and contemporary comfort blend into one. An exclusive and luxurious setting; wander through a timeless space where natural wooden and ultra-private decks introduce the sun-drenched outdoors to cool, calm interiors.  Fine furnishings reflect the elegance of African culture; and your luxury tent affords spacious privacy as close to nature as one can get.

Experience 'civilized' wilderness-living, in inimitable style, comfort, freedom, and breathtaking views.  The restaurant and lounge overlooks a watering hole, adjacent to a natural salt-lick, attracting an abundance of game. The camp fire, located just outside the restaurant, is a perfect location for that evening sundowner with a glass of wine from the well-stocked cellar. Mara Bushtops seamlessly combines peace with adventure in an oasis of maximum luxury, first-class comfort, and unforgettable sensations.

Day 6: Masai Mara

Depart early this morning to meet up with others for your sunrise hot air balloon ride. Soar into the skies and watch as the sun dawns across the plains. The balloon will float up for a wide view of the park, and then sweep down almost to the treetops so you can see the animals up close, sometimes dropping to just inches above the animals and ground. This ability to quietly ascend and descend allows you to get closer to the animals, affording some of the most incredible views of game and the park. Afterward, enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast right in the middle of the game park complete with champagne. This is one of our most highly rated activities.

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.

In between game drives, there are plenty of activities to ensure your free time is filled with engaging or relaxing activities. Arrange a boma-style dinner and dine fireside, chat with fellow guests in the common areas and recount your adventures, relax within the property grounds and watch as wildlife passes before your eyes, grab a refreshment and curl up with a good book, and enjoy sundowner cocktails to welcome the starry night sky; the choice is yours! Alternatively, a range of optional activities (at additional cost) are also available, including hot air balloon safaris and interactive school visits.

Day 7: Masai Mara

Early this morning you will meet up with others at the lodge and head out on a rewarding game drive. Today, see if you can spot the elusive leopard. The smallest of the four "big cats," the leopard was once found across eastern and southern Asia and Africa, from Siberia to South Africa, but its range has decreased radically because of hunting and loss of habitat. It is now chiefly found in sub-Saharan Africa. 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 36 miles per hour, its unequaled ability to climb trees even when carrying a heavy carcass, and its notorious ability for stealth. Ever elusive, these animals are one of the prized sightings within the 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, today focusing on lions. Typically found in the savannah and grasslands, lions live on average between 10 and 14 years, and are unusually social compared to other cats. A pride of lions consists of related females, their offspring and a small number of adult males. Groups of female lions typically hunt together, while the highly distinctive male lion is easily recognized by its mane and large face; one of the most widely recognized animal symbols in human culture.

Day 8: Masai Mara - Chyulu Hills

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

Board a flight in Masai Mara with service to the Chyulu airstrip via Nairobi. 

Please note, strict luggage restrictions apply to this flight: 1) Maximum weight allowance of 32 lbs (15 kg) is permitted per person. 2) Baggage must be soft-shelled and not exceed dimensions of 21.5” (55cm) x 13.5” (35cm) x 10” (25cm). 3) Additional baggage allowance can be arranged at additional cost, please speak to your Destination Expert for more information.

A guide from your lodge will pick you up and transfer you between your accommodations and the nearby airstrip. If time permits, this expert guide will take you out on a game drive before dropping you off.

Imagine a seemingly endless expanse of scenic Africa, a place where the “Big 5” can be found free and wild, without tourists in mini buses or a set schedule. Imagine traveling 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, indoor or outdoor shower, or private swimming pool await – all with inspiring views across the wildlife filled plains, delicious food, and charming, attentive hosts. This is Ol Donyo Lodge, where days in the Chyulu Hills are characterized by world-class game viewing, outstanding hospitality and the gorgeous Kenyan landscape.

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. 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 9: Chyulu Hills

Large populations of wildlife find their habitat in and around the area surrounding Ol Donyo Lodge. While the "Big 5" are here - rhino, elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo - most of this group are quite elusive. With that being said, cheetahs, elephants, fringe-eared oryx, gerenuks, and giraffes are commonly spotted. 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. 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 Masai 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 Masai. Guests are able to visit the Masai villages on the ranch, without a sense of voyeurism. It is an authentic experience, giving guests insight into the culture and traditions of the Masai, and is for most guests a rewarding highlight. Please note: The Masai do charge guests for taking photos.

Day 10: Chyulu Hills

The Chyulu Hills and its diverse ecosystem lend itself perfectly to horseback safaris. From the mist forests to open plains to the dense woodland, a horse navigates the landscape gracefully. The team of 20 horses - ranging in size - 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’ massive 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 few will have the opportunity to experience. This is Ol Donyo Wuas’ “log-jam” hide, a mass of heavy logs piled about five feet high and three 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  about the wildlife - 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 a half-day experience.

    This was the trip of a lifetime. I would not have gotten as much out of the trip if it were not for Evan, Kensington’s accommodations, and the guides! I had an amazing time on Safari, at Victoria Falls, and in Cape Town. I can’t remember all of the names of my guides but they were all knowledgeable and passionate not only about their respective countries, but passionate about their field. I felt safe and received the best education from all of them which is one of the main goals of my trips. Thank you Kensington!

    I thought the tour was so well planned, the accommodations were amazing, and the guides were so knowledgeable. I just want to go back!

    Zo, my guide in Madagascar was not only friendly and prompt, but also incredibly accommodating to do everything I wanted during my stay! It was another amazing trip to this beautiful island

  • Abdel J. — January 18, 2019 — Africa

    Both of my guides were absolutely friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience a lot of fun. May-Asi was my Tanzania guide and George Aburuki was my Kenya guide. This two fellas were the best!

    Our guide Youssef was very knowledgeable and taught us so much about Morocco. Everything went smoothly and he executed the plan with expertise. My husband and I were very pleased with the itinerary, the accommodations that had to be made to it, and the surprises that Youssef made happen. He added a personal touch that was above and beyond. Our driver Mohamed is the consummate professional - way beyond expectations.

    Amanda was amazing. From Day 1 I felt I was speaking with someone who was well experienced and informed about planning an African Safari experience. She kept my budget in mind without comprising on the experience. Everything exceeded my expectations. She made it a lifetime memory and for the reason we shall return to Africa once again with the support of Kensington Tours. In today's complex world of travel, so much can go wrong but everything went seamlessly. Well done!

    We had a wonderful safari experience and would highly recommend Kensington Tours! The highlight of our trip was our tour guide, Sam. He was highly professional and extremely knowledgeable! His guidance, friendship and professionalism allowed us to completely relax and to learn about incredible Tanzania and its beautiful wildlife and fascinating history. We could not have asked for a better guide!

  • Mark J. — September 13, 2018 — Africa

    The tour guides in Maasai Mara were outstanding!

  • Eric P. — September 11, 2018 — Africa

    One of our best trips ever! We had a phenomenal time and everything went off without a hitch.

  • Stephen B. — August 16, 2018 — Africa

    The trip was spectacular. We managed to view more than 150 animals and birds. Each location was different - guide, accommodation, scenery and food. They were all our favorites but I would make special mention of Zelda North, our guide (and now friend) in South Africa. I recommend that anyone traveling to South Africa, Cape Town, in particular, make certain to request Zelda for your guide. She is just awesome and personalized our visit in a way that was perfectly suited to our particular likes and needs.
