The main tourist season is in January and February, when the weather is hottest and driest. At this time, the animals in the wildlife parks tend to congregate more around the watercourses, making them easier to spot.

Northern and eastern Kenya temperatures vary from highs of up to 40°C during the day to less than 20°C at night. Rainfall in this area is sparse and, when it does occur, is often in the form of violent storms. July is usually the driest month, and November the wettest.

Itinerary

Fly to Nairobi
Day 2-5

Laikipia, Northern Kenya, Kenya

Touching down in Nairobi, you’ll be whisked through the airport by a representative to your driver, who will take you to Nairobi Wilson Airport to board your light aircraft flight to Nanyuki, the gateway to Laikipia. You’ll soon be on your way to Solio Lodge, your wilderness home for the next three nights. This lodge exudes elegance and exclusivity and is set within a private conservancy, nestled between the slopes of Mount Kenya and the rolling peaks of the Aberdare Mountains. Get ready for immersive wildlife experiences, coupled with first-class service. Feel your senses awaken as you embark on the ultimate nature walk, following in the tracks of black rhino, led by an expert guide. Wake up to the dawn chorus of birds before cantering into the wild on horseback. Venture out on a game drive and feel the thrill of being in a leopard’s presence, as she gazes out at you from the branch of an acacia tree. Or try your hand at trout fishing in the enchanting Aberdares National Park, before heading back to Solio to indulge on a sumptuous spread of fine cuisine, under a sky brimming with star constellations.

Accommodation: Solio Lodge ( 3 nights )
Day 5-9

Maasai Mara and Southern Kenya, Kenya

The Masai Mara awaits. After one last canter into the wild or a delectable breakfast set up for you in the savannah, you’ll start your journey to the Mara. Feel your excitement build as you fly low over rolling plains and savannah dotted with acacia trees and wildlife.  Landing in the wilderness, your guide will meet you off the plane and game drive you to Sala’s Camp, where your hosts will be ready and waiting with a smile and revitalising drinks, welcoming you into their home. Situated in the lesser explored southern region of the reserve, from July to September this luxurious camp has a prime spot for the Great Migration and phenomenal wildlife sightings year-round, which you can observe from the serenity of your plunge pool on your private veranda, or wander through this vast land in an open game vehicle. Rise from your king size bed just as dawn is breaking and enjoy a delectable breakfast, cooked up for you on a stove out on the savannah, while you gaze out across the Sand River. Each evening sip on a glass of whisky or a gin and tonic around the campfire, sharing stories with other guests as you watch the vivid glow of the sun on the dusty horizon.

Accommodation: Sala's Camp ( 4 nights )
Day 9-11

Nairobi and Central Kenya, Kenya

Awake to the gentle sounds of bird calls and watch the sunlight beam through the canvas window of your luxury 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 one last venture in the Masai Mara, before boarding your light aircraft flight back to Nairobi. Arriving in Nairobi Wilson Airport, a driver from Giraffe Manor will greet you and transfer you to the manor. Entering this stately building and heading out on the sunny terrace with the verdant green lawn laid out ahead, you may catch your first glimpse of the giraffes that makes this world-famous hotel so sought-after. This evening enjoy a delicious high- tea on the terrace and admire the towering giraffes as they join you for a tasty giraffe snack!

Accommodation: Giraffe Manor ( 2 nights )
