Ultimate Kenya

Ultimate Kenya Ultimate Kenya

The perfect bush and beach safari offers you the chance to explore Kenyan wildlife by jeep, on foot or on horseback.

Connoisseurs of wildlife watching know how rare it is to see endangered black rhinos and rare white rhinos at the same location. But Lewa is one of those special places. Set on the Laikipia Plateau, this private conservancy has a limited number of visitors and an almost unlimited stock of wildlife. It’s also an apt curtain-raiser to the Masai Mara’s incredible wildebeest and zebra migration and watching the huge numbers of lions, leopards, elephants, giraffe, gazelle, buffalo and waterbuck that roam across the region’s rolling savannah.

But safaris aren’t Kenya’s only ultimate experience. The southern coast welcomes you to world class beaches and the Indian Ocean.

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.

Now for a wonderful game-viewing experience. Lewa is a private conservancy comprising 62,000 acres of prime savannah and rolling bush. It has all the diversity and richness of game you’d expect of a major national park, but Lewa is private so there are no crowds, meaning you’ll see more animals than people.

In fact, Lewa is one of the few remaining places where you’ll see endangered black and white rhinos as well as plains animals like zebra, giraffe, antelopes and any number of fascinating birds. The scenery is also breath-taking, with sweeping grasslands stretching off to a horizon shaped by the snowy peaks of Mount Kenya.

Stay: Three nights in a double room at Lewa Wilderness Camp.

You’ll be surrounded by savannah grasslands punctuated by iconic thorn trees, rounded hills and towering forests – the natural home to a huge diversity of bird species, as well as elephants, buffalo, waterbuck, Thomson’s gazelle, eight different types of monkeys, lions, cheetah, kongoni and topi.

You can scuba dive or snorkel in the crystal clear Indian Ocean, go kite surfing or deep sea fishing or ride a horse along the sands. There are tennis courts and one of Kenya’s most beautiful golf courses is just 20 minutes away. Altogether, it’s a brilliant way to round off an ultimate Kenyan adventure.

  • Although we bothered Lydia on several occasions over small matters, she was always patient and very helpful. The whole organisation from Heathrow and back was seamless and first class. Game watching on this trip surpassed all that we had seen before in the one trip. Our thanks to Ultimate yet again
