Avoid the crowds, enjoy the best weather, see more game – take a Christmas Safari to Kenya

You’re unlikely to spot reindeer, but take a Christmas Safari to Kenya and you will see great herds of elephants roaming across the Masai Mara.

You’ll be able to watch prides of lion, wild dogs, cheetahs, giraffe, zebra, leopards and – in a private conservancy at Laikipia – large numbers of black rhino and chimpanzees. You could even buy the family a hot air balloon flight, for Christmas.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.

Day 5: Laikipia – Masai Mara

Your next hop by light aircraft is to the Masai Mara and the Mara North Conservancy.

Day 6 – 8: Masai Mara

When you touch down in the Masai Mara you have arrived in one of the world’s most renowned regions for watching big game. Elephants, giraffe, zebra, rhino and wild dogs rub shoulders – a little uneasily – with big cats like lion, cheetah and even leopards. Experienced guides will take you on both day and night game drives, so you don’t miss any of the action. But you can also observe the smaller game on guided bush walks, and immerse yourself in the local culture with trips to nearby villages. Overnight fly camping, deep in the bush, is an option and for the ultimate Christmas present you can treat your nearest and dearest to a sunrise hot air balloon flight over Africa’s great plains.

Stay: Four nights in Kicheche Mara Camp.
