Transfer to International Airport & onward journey home

 

We will meet you upon arrival as you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International. From here we will transfer you to one of Nairobi’s most beautiful boutique hotels -Hemingways Hotel, Karen. An elegant boutique hotel situated in Nairobi's Karen residential area with magnificent views of the nearby Ngong hills.

After breakfast you will collected from Hemingways and taken to board your private air charter to Arijiju Retreat, Borana Conservancy, Laikipia Plateau. The vision of one determined character, Arijiju is quite unlike any other safari lodge. It's also a secret weapon in the battle to save rhinos from extinction. Your own private retreat that offers world-class wildlife, adventure and wellness facilities.

After breakfast you will be collected and taken to board your private air charter to Meru National Park, where you will stay at Carr-Hartley Private Tented Camp for three nights. The wildlife in Meru is vast and you will have no trouble finding game. Over 400 species of birds recorded in this park and you will be able to see an array of them from camp. A stay at our very own Meru Camp is a true safari experience with no comfort spared.

Fly by private air charter to Galdessa Camp, Tsavo East National Park, where you will spend the next three nights. Galdessa is a Sheldrick Wildlife Trust property that lies on the banks of the Galana River, in Tsavo East National Park- one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya. At the Galana river, wildlife sightings are frequent, whether you enjoy a game drive or remain at the camp watching hippos, elephants and more as they come to cool off in the river. The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is an incredible charity that focuses its efforts on saving Kenya’s orphaned elephants and helping them reintegrate back into the wild. Galdessa is one of the areas that once the orphan elephants have passed through the nursery stage of the reintegration process (aged two years), they are then moved to Galdessa to start their eight year process to successfully integrate back into the wild. It is such an incredible journey to watch and be part of.

Fly by private air charter to Maasai Mara National Reserve, Carr-Hartley Private Tented Camp, where you will spend the next three nights. Our very own Maasai Mara Camp is situated upon the shaded banks of the Sand River. During the migration, the wildebeest and zebra will mostly be close to camp and there is a chance you will see a crossing right in front of your tent. Our mobile private tented camps are every bit as comfortable as any lodge or camp whilst retaining the appeal and flexibility of being able to position the camp in any place we choose.

After breakfast, we depart the Maasai Mara and fly back to Nairobi. This afternoon you will enjoy your private viewing at Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage. A spectacular encounter up close with these orphaned baby elephants and lovely final activity as you farewell your Kenyan safari. Spend the day at Hemingways Hotel and have a chance to do some last minute shopping or simply relax. You will then be taken to the International airport that evening for your onward journey back home.
