ABOUT THE ITINERARY

From Nairobi, you’ll fly off to wildlife-rich Laikipia to spend four nights at an intimate, owner-run lodge set on its own working farm. With a dedicated ‘Bush School’ for kids, you’ll be able to fill your days here with exciting game drives, horseback riding, birdwatching and more.

Then comes a stay at a private, family-owned boutique lodge on the edge of the fabled Masai Mara Reserve where you’ll find plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy – including guided bush walks, fishing and visits to local Masai villages. Finally, you’ll make your way to the beautiful Kenyan Coast and a secluded stretch of beach for a few days of sun, sand and sea.

Day and night game drives and guided walks with expert local trackers will bring you encounters with an array of wildlife, from the Big Five to rarer species like Grevy’s zebra and the indigenous Laikipia hartebeest. The viewing hide offers guests the chance to capture some incredible close-up shots, with fishing, horseback riding, birdwatching, fly camping, rhino-tracking and farm visits also on the menu.

Guests are also free to wander about and assist with day-to-day jobs on the farm, from milking the cows to beekeeping and tree planting.

KENYAN COAST

Today you will exchange the sweeping plains for something entirely different.

With the nearest hotel two kilometers away, you can expect a wonderfully secluded and private atmosphere in which to relax.

Although the perfect environment in which to do nothing but laze on picture-perfect sands and swim in balmy ocean waters, Kinondo Kwetu also offers an exciting menu of activities for all ages. Water sports enthusiasts will be able to choose from kitesurfing, deep sea fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving and sailing, whilst those who stay on dry land can play tennis and golf, take private yoga classes, visit nearby villages and ride horses through sacred ‘Kaya’ forests. Close by is the Shimba Hills Natural Reserve, sanctuary to elephants, buffalo and antelopes.
