A couple's escape
All year round
This is one of those trips that you'll never forget. You'll explore some of the most magical, untouched places in Kenya, staying in our favourite eco-lodges and safari camps. First arriving at our family owned lodge, you'll be welcomed into our little piece of paradise where you'll go on safari, enjoy some sundowners, or relax by the pool. After Ololo you'll take a short flight to the Masai Mara reserve, where you'll look for the big 5 in an open safari vehicle, and have breakfast under a large acacia tree.
This safari is perfect for families, couples and group travel, and can be adapted and personalised to what you're looking for in your ideal African safari.
"Endless horizons scattered with herds of zebra and giraffe. Spectacular sunsets with a G&T in hand. Simply unforgettable."
Day 3 - 6 | Masai Mara
Today you'll catch a short flight to the Masai Mara conservancy, arguably the most rich and naturally biodiverse national park in the world. You'll be picked up from the bush airstrip by our friends from the safari camp, who will be looking after you for the next few days. You'll enjoy the sheer serenity and exclusivity that the Mara offers as your explore the reserve and its natural wonders.
Some of the highlights include:
- Guided morning and evening game drives
