Itinerary

Day 1 - 4CHYULU HILLS NATIONAL PARK | OVERNIGHT AT OL-DONYO LODGE

3 nights at Ol-Donyo Lodge in a standard pool suite on a fully inclusive basis.

Transfer from your early arrival international flight, or hotel, to connect with a morning light aircraft flight from Nairobi Wilson or Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to the Chyulu Hills (40-minute flight). 20-minute transfer from airstrip to lodge.

ol Donyo Lodge is a Relais & Châteaux and National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World member property with seven suites located on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills overlooking Mount Kilimanjaro.
3 nights hardly does justice to the plethora of activities on offer in this Maasai land. Choose between day and night game drives, walking, village visits, exploring lava tunnels, horse riding, mountain-biking, sleeping under the stars on your roof-top bed, watch big tusker elephants drink from the waterholes below the lodge, or just relaxing in your pool suite.

Set on the Mbirikani Group Ranch – 275,000 acres of immaculate, private wild Africa bordering the foothills of the Chyulu Hills National Park– ol Donyo Lodge blends contemporary design with the rich culture and history of the people of this area, the indomitable Maasai. This is an area rich in wildlife, where some of Africa’s last giant elephant bulls roam freely, where the haunting calls of leopards interrupt the night and where lion are being pulled back from the brink of annihilation.

The lodge itself was rebuilt in 2008 and sits in thick woodland on a gently sloping hillside with views out over the plains to a distant Kilimanjaro. Designed to merge your outdoor and indoor living, a
series of unique suites and villas (no two are the same) appears to emerge from the arid landscape on either side of a palatial lounge and dining area. Six pool suites plus 1 two-bedroom family unit offers a harmonious blend of contemporary and rustic accommodation, merging the landscape into each suite. All of the rooms have their own plunge pool and enjoy roof terraces where intimate “star beds” can be set up, allowing guests the thrill of sleeping in style under a canopy of endless stars while connecting with their sense of place and self.

Day 4-7MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE | OVERNIGHT AT MARA EXPEDITION CAMP

3 nights at Mara Expedition Camp in a tent on a fully inclusive basis.

Light aircraft transfer from ol Donyo Lodge to Kiombo airstrip in the Mara Conservancies and then a 45-minute game drive to Mara Expedition Camp.

Mara Expedition Camp is a small, five tent, authentic bush camp with a traditional, romantic explorer- style. During the 3 nights there, you will experience the Maasai Mara at her best. Outside of the migration season you will be surprised that the wildlife seen at this time of year is as good as anywhere in Africa in peak season, yet you have the Mara almost to yourselves.
There is an air of yesteryear in Mara Expedition Camp’s design, which draws stylistic reference from the old, authentic expedition camps of the colonial era. Temporary and transient in atmosphere, there is nonetheless a perfect blend of comfort, adventure and harmony in the camp’s five, custom-designed tents.

Set at ground level and shaded by the forest canopy, the tents forego fancy amenities but leave you wanting for nothing. With flushing toilets, bucket showers and hot-and cold running water, each tent
is decorated with an eclectic yet co-ordinated assembly of what early explorers may have carried with them – brass chandeliers, old Indian campaign chests, rich leather and hardwood furniture – combined with rich textiles and soft cottons. But it is out on the plains of the Maasai Mara and the adjacent Mara North Conservancy that guests really connect with Africa and live the explorer experience, surrounded by wildlife.

The camp is in prime leopard territory and the annual wildebeest and zebra migration passes literally in front of your tent, offering you the chance to witness one of the miracles of nature first-hand from the comfort of your veranda.

Day 7 & 10 LAIKIPIA “FOOT OF MT KENYA”| OVERNIGHT AT ENASOIT

3 nights at Enasoit Camp in a luxury tent on an exclusive use, fully inclusive basis.

Light aircraft transfer from Ol-Kiombo airstrip in the Mara Conservancies to Enasoit private airstrip on the Laikipia Plateau.

Enasoit is situated at the foot of Mount Kenya. Set within a natural wildlife corridor, Enasoit is a haven for game watching, and welcomes guests on an exclusive-hire basis. Guests have Enasoit and its wildlife all to themselves. Guests stay at Enasoit Camp, a luxury tented camp overlooking a busy water-hole. Giraffe, zebra and gazelle graze quietly in front of Camp, elephant and buffalo regularly come to drink, and the bird-life is vibrant.

As a much-loved family home, Enasoit is uniquely welcoming and has a magic all of its own. The 6 double / twin tented cottages are cleverly constructed from canvas, thatch and permanent local materials. Each room has a fireplace, a private veranda and a comfortable seating area with sheepskin sofas for morning tea and game viewing. When not busy with other activities from guided game drives and walks to horse-riding and bush picnics, guests can relax at the Pool House, a pool-side retreat surrounded by lush gardens a few minutes from Camp.

Life in camp revolves around the spacious mess-tent. There is a wooden deck for game- viewing and drinks, as well as a dining and sitting area with a fireplace for the cooler evenings. Our collection of old books on African wildlife and history can be enjoyed by the camp fire. The water-hole and salt licks, barely 50 meters away, are lit up at night and provide unparalleled nocturnal game viewing, cocktail in hand!

OPTIONAL: EXTENDING YOUR STAY WITH US!
TRUSITRI DHOW: Dhows are traditional wooden sailing vessels originally built for carrying exotic spices and goods along the Indian Ocean trade routes. Tusitiri Dhow has been meticulously restored and converted and is today a majestic and comfortable vessel offering dhow safaris for up to 10 guests in the Lamu archipelago in northern Kenya. Life on board is laid back and centered on Tusitiri’s broad deck; sumptuous cushioned seating areas line the deck and a dining area is arranged around the wooden mast. Bathrobes and ‘kikoi’ towels are supplied and below deck there are bathroom facilities and two day-cabins with space for storage and changing.

Days on board are spent sailing between the islands. Guests enjoy fabulous snorkeling on the reefs, deep sea fish, waterskiing or simply relaxing and soaking up the quiet calm on board. For the shoppers there is nothing better than wondering Lamu’s cobbled streets and picking up a bargain before returning to Tusitiri at anchor for an evening ‘sundowner’ or ‘moonriser’ in a beautiful spot…

Local boat transfers, sailing on Tusitiri, snorkelling, water skiing, wake boarding, creek fishing, guided walks, cultural visits, wifi on board (where there is signal) and laundry.
