Ker & Downey Africa's Kenya safari is the top selling East African experience, and for good reason. Visiting four primary regions and three of the top National Parks in Kenya in action-packed days, there simply is no better option for first time visitors to the country. Game drives, bush walks, scenic flights, and cultural experiences are all included in this thrilling experience.
During this safari, you will stay for one night at the Giraffe Manor, two nights at Tortilis Camp, two nights at Sasaab Camp, and three nights at Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp.
Set on a 12 acre private reserve, surrounded by 140 acres of indigenous forest, Giraffe Manor is a serene area where guests can sink back and relax at the start or end of their safari adventure with nature bursting in the door, accompanied by a few giraffe. This luxury boutique hotel has maintained all the charm of a past era, now famous for its resident herd of Rothschild Giraffe, this colonial masterpiece gives guests a window to the wilds.
Known as Kenya’s best loved safari camp, andBeyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp offers a quintessential game viewing experience, with sweeping vistas of the Masai Mara or the Sabaringo River.
Located where the riverine forest meets the sweeping plains in the path of the awe-inspiring Great Migration, the camp provides an authentic dose of African wildlife, delivered with legendary Kenyan hospitality.
Enhancing its signature elements of romance and nostalgia, the camp has been redesigned to better showcase its panoramic Masai Mara views. With timeless interiors that are simple yet contemporary and stylish, the new Kichwa Tembo enhances guests’ sense of privacy and enjoyment.
With the majestic backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain, and the world’s highest freestanding mountain, Tortilis Camp is widely regarded as the prime location for witnessing the majesty of snow-capped Kilimanjaro. Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree that surrounds the camp, the Acacia Tortilis.
After arrival in Nairobi, Kenya’s bustling capital and largest city, you will be met by a Ker & Downey Africa representative for the start of your adventure and transfer to Giraffe Manor.
Ever dined with giraffes? Well, the exclusive boutique hotel is situated among 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest and is home to a herd of resident Rothschild giraffe who will join you for breakfast and dinner each day in the hope of sharing a meal with you. Literally. Giraffe Manor is the perfect introduction of Kenya to prepare you for the adventure ahead.
After breakfast with the iconic giraffes, you will transfer to Wilson Airport and make your way to Tortilis Camp situated in the Amboseli National Park, famed for its magnificent elephants that roam the park.
The very first eco-lodge in Kenya, Tortilis provides a mind-blowing wildlife experience in combination with heart pumping activities. Gaze at Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance from your room or venture out into the wild and explore the surrounding area on game drives, guided walks, bush breakfasts, and much more.
Enjoy another world-class breakfast at Tortilis Camp or out in the bush before transferring to the Samburu National Reserve. After your chartered flight touches down, you will be met by a representative from Sasaab Lodge and transferred to the Moroccan and Swahili-designed lodge.
The rugged and semi-desert park is situated in the Rift Valley Province. The park was once inaccessible, which has preserved a raw and untamed essence. The park borders the homes of the nomadic Samburu tribe, allowing you to experience their age-old ways of life.
Hold on as you explore the park on the back of a camel. Traversing through the arid landscape as well as areas inaccessible to vehicles on a camel’s back provides a unique perspective of the park that few have experienced. For the adrenaline junkies, quad bikes are available for you to explore the park at your own will, allowing you a sense of complete freedom.
The Ewaso Ng’iro river cuts through the park providing incredible game sightings due to the concentration of wildlife around the water source in the otherwise dry region, bringing about an incredible meeting of the biggest, fastest, and most dangerous wildlife in Kenya.
After your final breakfast at Sasaab Lodge, there is no doubt that you will not want to leave. However, after arriving in the iconic Masai Mara National Reserve, you will soon remember why you love seeing new places.
This next location on your Kenya safari experience is named in honor of the Masai people that live, to this day, off of the land in the area despite sharing their residence with big game and dangerous predators. Your time in the Masai Mara National Park will be enriching, both due to unsurpassing wildlife encounters as well as unforgettable cultural visits.
Gaze out over what seems like the entire Masai Mara after you hike the Oloololo Trail to the escarpment. Visit a Masai village and learn about the ancient ways of these nomadic people. And, if you dare, take an awe-inspiring hot air balloon ride over the plains.
Your home in the Masai Mara National Park is Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp. Situated in the park where riverine forest meets expansive plains, the camp looks out directly at the path of the Great Migration, allowing you to feel the stampeding hooves of the millions of wildebeest and zebra, as well as the predators following from behind.
Once you have completed your last breakfast in the African bush, you will bid farewell to the land and begin your transfer journey to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) for your return flight.
Aside from the daily safari journey, there will also be a cultural excursion to Masai village to learn about the life of the nomadic Masai people.
This safari will take place in Nairobi, Amboseli, Samburu Game Reserve, and Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The country is known best for the nomadic ethnic tribe, the Maasai, Africa’s second highest peak, Mount Kenya, and the largest permanent desert lake in the world, Lake Turkana. This country bears no secrets, as its culture and beauty is evident and proudly exhibited for the world to view.
Take a walk on the wild side with a visit to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Initially created as a safe haven exclusively for the black rhino, sitatunga, and the endangered grevy’ zebra, it is also home to over 200 bird species. Tour guided adventures into the bush are available by foot, safari vehicles, and even by camel.
The national parks in Kenya offer a variety of inventive and exhilarating game viewing experiences that are unique to each location. Watch elephants, hippos, and crocodiles move through murky waters from an under-water glass tank at Tsavo National Park in your ultimate Kenya Safari. Amboseli National Park offers visitors a unique view of fauna, with Mount Kilimanjaro as the spectacular backdrop.
