NAIROBI

Situated in along the Nairobi River in beautiful Kenya, the capital of Nairobi is East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city. It serves as an excellent starting point for African safari trips around Kenya. Nairobi is Africa’s 4th largest city and is a vibrant and exciting place, and although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief, there are some fascinating attractions: its cafe culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably just 20 minutes from the city centre wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve. Make sure you pay a visit to the elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

LAIKIPIA

Sandwiched between Mount Kenya and the northern deserts, Laikipia is where Kenya’s wild and semi-arid northern frontier country begins. The region is made up of privately owned and community ranches centred around the Laikipia National Reserve. Known as one of Kenya’s best safari areas, the high plains of Laikipia feature vast open stretches of African savanna scattered with abundant game including: Grevy’s zebras, black rhino, lion, leopard, wild dogs, buffalo and thousands of elephants. Visitors can enjoy a luxury safari experience at a private lodge or stay in the worthwhile community-run lodges which support the local Samburu and Ilaikipiak and Mokogodo Maasai communities.

MARA NORTH CONSERVANCY

Situated in southwest Kenya, the Mara North Conservancy is a beautiful private wilderness area spanning more than 30 000 hectares. It is home to a spectacular array of plants, reptiles, birds and mammals; including elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and large concentrations of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and other migratory wildlife. Leopard Gorge, in the heart of the conservancy, is famous as the setting of countless BBC Big Cat Diaries and National Geographic documentaries. Neighbouring the well-known Maasai Mara National Reserve, this conservancy is vital for sustaining the famous Serengeti wildebeest migrations as well as the highly threatened African wild dog and black rhino.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • ONE FORTY EIGHT | NAIROBI - Located in the peaceful suburb of Langata, overlooking the giraffe sanctuary, this beautiful little gem, with just 8 rooms, will provide the business or safari traveler with an ideal location to rest and relax in tranquil surroundings. The location itself is completely unique with warthogs, parrots, peacocks and monkeys freely coming and going through the garden. Often lions and hyenas can be heard from the proximity of the incredible Nairobi National Park - the only major city in the world to share spaces with wildlife. One Forty Eight is an ideal location to retreat from or delve into and explore Nairobi. An incredible private home forms the foundation of the hotel, along with 5 suites converted from the on-site artist's studio, the hotel itself spares no modern convenience - delicious food and wine, beautifully appointed rooms, first-class service, in-room televisions and Wi-Fi throughout, boutique designer shops in the grounds, as well as access to amazing restaurants, museums and wildlife on their doorstep.
  • KARISIA NYARARA CAMP | LAIKIPIA - Set on the edge of a plain with long views towards Mt Kenya and the Aberdare Range in the south. Nyarara means cheetah in Masai and the camp was given this name because cheetah are often seen in the area. We walk across large plains as well as mixed bush looking for herds of Common and Grevy’s zebra, Oryx and Grant’s gazelle and herds of Reticulated Giraffe which predominate on the large plains. In the mixed bush we find Dik Diks, Gerenuk, Impala and Lesser Kudu if we are lucky enough to see them.

The camp boasts 12 classic tents, 20 superior tents and 8 superior view tents. While all the tents look out onto the open grasslands or the shady forest surrounding the Saparingo River, the superior view tents boast exceptionally beautiful, uninterrupted views of the Masai Mara.The generously sized swimming pool is set among the trees and surrounded by lush lawns and spectacular views.
