Average time to visit

The only time to avoid Kenya is during the long rainy season in April and May. November is considered the short rainy season, however, these are less predictable and are much lighter. The best time of year to visit the Maasai Mara is during the Great Wildebeest Migration which tends to pass through the Mara between mid July to late October.

Itinerary

Fly to Nairobi
Day 1-2

Nairobi, Nairobi and Central Kenya, Kenya

Touching down in Nairobi, you’ll be met by your driver who will take you straight to the Crowne Plaza Nairobi Airport Hotel, so you can catch up on some sleep before your adventure in Kenya begins in the morning.

Accommodation: The Crowne Plaza Nairobi Airport ( 1 night )
Day 2-5

Laikipia, Northern Kenya, Kenya

After enjoying a hearty breakfast, you’ll be raring to go this morning as your driver whisks you to Nairobi Wilson Airport to board your 12-seater light aircraft flight to Nanyuki, the gateway to Laikipia. You’ll be picked up and driven to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, an area teeming with wildlife in the foothills of Mount Kenya and home to the last two northern white rhinos remaining on the planet. You’ll arrive at Kicheche Laikipia Camp, your home for the next three nights. Nestled in indigenous forest overlooking a waterhole, this award winning eco-tented camp has a luxurious simplicity about it. 
Spend your days immersed in the wild. Hop into your open game vehicle and keep your eyes peeled, as your expert guide tracks animals such as lions and hyenas. Lean into limitless, as you cycle through the wild, passing towering giraffes and dazzling zebras in the late afternoon sun, with some Instagram worthy photos to be taken along the way. Glide into Kicheche’s waterhole on a canoe with the chance to observe animals coming to the water’s edge to drink. Feel your senses awaken as you embark on the ultimate nature walk, led by an expert walking guide who will point out the spoor of a leopard and the tracks of rhinos. You’ll also visit the Morani Centre, a heart-warming experience as you learn how the rangers and scientists protect the conservancy and safeguard the precious wildlife. 

Accommodation: Kicheche Laikipia Camp ( 3 nights )
Day 5-8

Maasai Mara, Kenya

Awake to the dawn chorus of bird calls and watch the sunlight beam through the canvas window of your tent, illuminating your bed. A tray of roasted coffee and hot chocolate will be waiting for you on your veranda, before you head out on your final morning game drive in Laikipia. You will then be transferred back to Nanyuki, to catch your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara.
As you soar over the Mara, vast plains and rolling hills will unravel before your eyes. You’ll land in the wilderness with zebras and wildebeest peering over at you. Your safari starts now as you are game driven to Kicheche Mara Camp, hidden in a beautiful valley within the Mara North Conservancy. This classic tented camp exudes elegance and its location in a prime wildlife area means that you will see animals roaming through the camp, from the comfort of your private veranda, where you can contemplate the view with a gin and tonic in hand. 
The following three days will be filled with memories to cherish for a lifetime. Discover a Maasai community and be enthralled by the way they live in harmony with the nature. Feel your excitement building as you approach a herd of majestic elephants, gently ambling by in the savannah. If you’re lucky, feel the thrill of being in a leopard’s presence, as she gazes out at you from the high branch of an acacia tree. Feeling particularly adventurous? Then let us arrange a fly-camping experience for you. Spend the day roaming freely through the wild on foot, engaging all your senses, before sleeping under a net of star constellations as you camp out under canvas in the depths of the wild. Let your excitement wander.

Accommodation: Kicheche Mara Camp ( 3 nights )
Day 8-13

Zanzibar Coast, Tanzania

A dreamlike beach paradise awaits you. This morning, after one last venture soaking up the Masai Mara, you’ll catch a flight back to Nairobi Wilson and then connect on to a flight to Zanzibar. You will arrive at your tropical island home, Zuri Zanzibar. Step out onto the talcum-soft sand of Zanzibar’s only non-tidal beach and sink into pure tranquillity. This innovative hotel oozes contemporary design and flare. Sustainability and experiences are at its core and you’ll spend the final five days of your trip delving into all that Zuri has to offer. Let your senses guide you through the spice garden and tantalise your taste buds with a sizzling cookery class. Close your eyes and empty your mind as you balance on the peaceful yoga deck, which overlooks the glittering cyanic ocean. Float out to sea on a traditional wooden dhow boat and plunge into the ocean for a revitalising swim and snorkel, before basking your way back to shore where a delectable seafood lunch will be waiting for you. Evenings will be spent lounging on the stylish beach cushions, sipping on cocktails to the sounds of chilled, live music and gazing out at the horizon as the sky turns a brilliant fuchsia pink.

Accommodation: Zuri Zanzibar Hotel & Resort ( 5 nights )
