Kenya: East African Wildlife Safari

4 Day Walking Safari, 3 Day Lodge Safari, 3 Days at the Indian Ocean

The Masai Mara is the northern extension of the Serengeti. It is home to the great herds of Africa.

Characterized by rolling grasslands as far as one can see, these plains are roamed by huge numbers of wildebeest, zebra, eland and Thomson's gazelle. The great wildebeest migration is a wonder of the world; half a million animals and their attendant predators: lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena cross the Serengeti each autumn season.

"So much wealth in this place of indescribable magic and beauty, but many people think they are superior to and separate from nature, they become ignorant of the earth and its ways... but if we don't understand nature and believe in it, we will fear it, and what humans fear they destroy and as we destroy the earth - we destroy ourselves."
Elmon Mhlongo, Londolozi Tracker.

4 Day Walking Safari

This is an exclusive four night safari that offers every aspect of what a real safari should be - seeing animals, walking, exploring, and experiencing African life alongside our expert local trackers who live in this area. The opportunities for game viewing on foot or by vehicle, at any time of the year are undoubtedly some of the best in Africa. The area transects the Koiyaki and Ol Kinyei Group ranches, adjoining the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

The idea behind walking on safari in a wilderness area is to gain a much more intimate, comprehensive, and intense experience of the animals and landscape. The animals we come across will be going about their daily business of survival undisturbed. Walking is a fantastic way to encounter game, their tracks, sounds, scents, their relationships to each other and the ever- changing environment.

Accommodation is in comfortable, walk-in insect- proof tents, custom-made for our walking safaris. They are bush- green; with large mesh windows on all sides for maximum viewing (can be completely closed if necessary). The mesh roof (to see the night sky) can be covered with a flysheet if rain looks likely. Comfortable bedrolls with mattresses, cotton sheets and warm covers (with hot water bottles when necessary) on a 7ft X 7ft sheepskin carpet make up the sleeping arrangements. Washing facilities consist of hot traditional safari bucket showers as required, washstands with basins and a short drop toilet tent.

3 Day Lodge Safari

Set on a wonderful rocky promontory, overlooking the sweeping Isupukiai River, our luxury seasonal Ol Seki Mara Camp enjoys panoramic views in a gorgeous wilderness area teeming with game. Eastern Koiyaki, north of the Mara, provides a rare opportunity to enjoy wildlife viewing, in a pristine setting. This oasis of inspired and beautifully designed tents is nestled amongst Cordia and Acacia trees attracting an abundance of wildlife and birds, many of which are seen from the tents in the valley below.

The simple modern architecture creates an exciting living space in the six light and roomy tents, each with a double and a single bed, crisp linen, thoughtfully designed lighting, a changing room and en suite hot showers and flush toilets. All have breathtaking views and all are designed to meet environmental demands and complimented by the fine décor of the comfortable library and dining tents.

Elegant candle lit dinners, a resident masseuse a delight for all senses! With privacy in mind, the ambience of the traditional mobile safari camp has been extended to heights never dreamed of in this peaceful and magical setting.
