Join an exciting safari and experience fun game drives in several national parks, having the chance to spot the Big Five, as well as a visit a chimpanzee sanctuary. During this safari, you will have the opportunity to see multiple species, such as the beautiful flamingos, in their natural habitat and be thrilled with the views of the African landscapes. This will certainly be a trip of a lifetime!
Set in 150 acres of grassland studded with Acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to the resident giraffe, waterbuck, and both Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but it is also a night stop for the hippos when they leave the lake every night to come and trim the grass on the expansive lawns.
With Sopa’s traditional and conscientious care for the environment, they carefully positioned all the buildings on their property so they did not have to cut any of the many trees there. As a result of this, they had to come up with a radically innovative and artistic design for the main public area building, which now snakes its way between the trees with long and graceful curves.
The hotel offers 21 cottages built in a crescent shape, and each has four rooms, two on the ground and two at the top, which totals to 84 rooms.
The exterior walls of the cottages have stone walls giving it character and creepers and bougainvilleas add a lot of color. The same stone work is carried into the rooms, and is the exterior bathroom wall. The banister going up the top floor is wrought iron as well and the same creepers and bougainvilleas are entwined around them.
The double-story guest cottages, with their ingeniously designed roofs, gently sweep away from one side of the main building to form a crescent which leads towards the lake shore. While the upstairs guest rooms have a single king size bed and the downstairs ones have two queen size beds, both have one thing in common: an extraordinary amount of space, as well as lavishly appointed bathrooms.
All rooms have large frontal windows, televisions, mini-bars, telephones, electronic safes, tea and coffee making facilities, and spacious, open air verandas.
Sleeping in Maasai Mara, one of the most renowned game parks in the world, is truly an exciting experience. Sarova Mara Game Camp offers spacious luxurious tents, attractively constructed in light beige canvas with large windows, wooden flooring, and a permanent roof. All have en-suite bathrooms with large mirrors, WC, hot and cold running water, and showers, and are equipped with a fully stocked mini bar, shaver outlets for 110 Volts and 200 Volts, and hairdryers.
The emphasis is on tasteful comfort with a smooth blend into the beautiful nature that makes the Mara. All tents are built with spectacular views. Large wooden decks with a comfortable day bed, chairs, and a table offer a tranquil and relaxing retreat while you listen to the natural sounds of nature.
Accommodation at Sweetwaters Serena Camp in Kenya is comprised of 56 tents, each with its own en-suite bathroom, with hot and cold running water, 24-hour hot showers, and flushing WC. All the tents have canvas interiors, solid floors, and separate thatched roofs. Electricity is provided by a 24-hour generator.
14 of the tents are on raised platforms with private balconies, the rest have private verandas, all with safari chairs and tables. Extra beds and cots can also be provided. Each tent features either a king-sized double bed or two twins. Mosquito nets are provided, as are hot water bottles at night.
Depart Nairobi at 8:00 a.m. to cross the Kenyan Highlands, through pineapple and coffee plantations. You will pass through the industrial town of Thika and the intensely cultivated farms of the central Kenya and arrive in time for lunch at Sweetwaters Tented Camp.
Sweetwaters is a luxury tented camp set in a 22,000-acre Rhino sanctuary: Ol Pajeta Camp. It enjoys magnificent plains to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya and has an abundant wildlife. After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive to the only chimpanzee sanctuary of its kind in Kenya.
During your stay at Sweetwaters, you will have to opportunity to meet and greet Morani, the tame black rhino, and to go and see chimpanzees living naturally within their dedicated sanctuary. You will spend the night in Sweetwaters Tented Camp.
Depart from Sweetwaters to Nakuru National Park with a packed lunch and enjoy views of Lake Elementaita before arriving at your destination, Lake Nakuru. The waters here are often colored sparkling flamingo pink from the thousands of attractive birds lining its shores. The park is home to warthogs, water bucks, buffaloes, reed bucks, and the occasional leopard.
White and black rhinos were introduced to the park some years ago and you will find white rhinos at the southern end. The park has also retained its reputation as an ornithologists' delight with more than 400 species of bird found here. Once in the park, there will be a game drive en-route to the lodge. On arrival, relax and rest at the lodge. You will spend the night in Naivasha Sopa.
Depart from Nakuru after breakfast and drive south via Narok to the Mara reserve. You will have a game drive en route to the luxurious tented camp upon arrival in the reserve. Arrive in time for lunch. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure and in the early evening, you will embark on a game drive to get a closer look at the Maasai Mara reserve.
Maasai Mara has incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers. Wherever you go in the Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Maasai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyenas, topis, impala, hartebeests, and wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras, and hippos also exist in great numbers.
It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but are still reasonably common. The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August, when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October. You will spend he night in Sarova Mara
Today, you will join a very early morning game drive in the Maasai Mara. This is the ideal time to see game as temperatures are cooler and hopefully lions, cheetahs, and leopards will be roaming the vast grasslands in search of prey.
Later, you will return to the lodge for breakfast. The rest of the morning will be at leisure or partake in optional activities, such as a visit to Maasai village to see their nomadic life. After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive to get a closer look at the Mara and to look out for the Big Five. Return to the lodge for dinner. You will spend the night in Sarova Mara
Day 5: Maasai Mara - Nairobi
Leave for an early morning game drive that promises to be thrilling. Later, return to the lodge for breakfast before you check out and leave for Nairobi. You will arrive in Nairobi at around 3:00 p.m.
This safari will take place in the Mount Kenya area in Kenya; visiting Nairobi, Nakuru, and Maasai Mara. Mount Kenya is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. Mount Kenya National Park is located to the east of the Great Rift Valley, about 175 kilometers north-east of Nairobi.
UNESCO inscribed Mount Kenya as a World Heritage Site and it is described as one of the most impressive landscapes in Eastern Africa, with its rugged glacier-clad summits, Afro-alpine moorlands, and diverse forests that illustrate outstanding ecological processes. Climate, flora, and fauna on Mount Kenya vary with altitude.
During this safari, you will be served with thee breakfasts, four lunches, and one dinner.
Sweetwaters Tented Camp offers a true safari experience with optional night drives, bush walks, and breakfast in the wild.
A well worth it and recommended activity in the Maasai Mara National Reserve is the balloon safari early in the morning. For this trip, you will be woken and driven to the departure site. Once in the air, the view of the surrounding landscape, the rising of the sun between the mountains, and the congregation of the animals at the river is beautiful. This all concludes with a champagne breakfast and memories that will last a lifetime.
