Day 1
NAIROBI

On arrival at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by an Asilia driver who will transfer you by private vehicle to the domestic airport, Wilson Airport. Fly from here to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, 40-minutes away (15 kg luggage limit per person; soft bags required for all flights on this itinerary). A guide from Ol Pejeta Bush Camp will meet you at the airstrip and game drive you back to camp, where you can enjoy lunch and relax in the comfort of your tent overlooking the river. In the mid-afternoon, set off for a game drive to explore this wildlife-rich reserve, which is home to Kenya’s largest population of black rhino as well as the rest of the Big 5 species and plenty of unusual wildlife, too, including eland and Grevy’s zebra.

Day 2-3
OL PEJETA BUSH CAMP

Enjoy morning and afternoon guided activities with the knowledgeable safari experts at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp. Game drives allow you to cover good distances in search of the resident wildlife, perhaps counting how many rhinos you can see in a drive. Whilst these modern-day dinosaurs are a rarity across much of Africa, they are found in great numbers here. You will also visit the endangered-species enclosure on a drive one morning or afternoon, where the last two remaining northern white rhino on Earth are found, meeting their rangers and learning about the work being done to save this sub-specie

Day 6-8
MAASAI MARA

After breakfast, you will be driven to the airstrip for your morning flight to the Masai Mara, a journey of approximately an hour, landing right in the heart of this world-famous reserve. A guide from Rekero will meet you here and game drive you back to camp, offering the perfect introduction to the vast savannah plains and stopping to watch any wildlife you encounter on the way. Settle into your tent and enjoy lunch and time to relax overlooking the Talek River, one of the two major river systems in the reserve, which runs right in front of camp. After afternoon tea and cake, head out on a game drive to search for big cats and other wildlife.

Day 5-6
REKERO CAMP

Game drives from Rekero take place in the early to mid-morning and in the mid- to late afternoon, when wildlife is most active, offering the best sightings. The grassy plains are home to a wide range of species, from prides of lion to cheetah stalking their prey and hippos wallowing in muddy pools. There is never a dull moment in the Masai Mara. During the heat of the day you will return to camp for a rest, lunch and, of course, the tradition of freshly baked cake and tea or coffee before your afternoon drive. Dinners are typically communal, sharing stories of your day’s adventures with other guests. Hot-air ballooning is also possible from here, at an additional cost (pre-booking recommended), offering a unique perspective on the landscapes and wildlife at sunrise

Day 7
DEPARTURE

Depart for the airstrip after your final breakfast in camp from where you will take the late morning flight back to Nairobi. An Asilia guide will transfer you from here by private vehicle to the international airport, Jomo Kenyatta, where you can check-in for your international flight home.
