Kenya offers some of the most pristine wilderness areas where the young and young at heart can really immerse themselves into an unforgettable African safari! The Kenya Luxury Safari itinerary allows you to explore the Samburu region, Masai Mara and Nairobi city whilst staying in some of Kenya’s most luxurious lodges and guest houses.
The first 3 nights of your Kenya Luxury Safari holiday will be spent in the Samburu region. The word ‘Samburu’ means ‘butterflies’ in the Masai language, and the region was named this way because of the colourful clothing worn by the Samburu people. The region is one of the driest in Kenya and its inhabitants still embrace the traditional way of life, making this an interesting place for some cultural education. The Samburu is home to a vast variety of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, cheetahs, leopards and the rare African Wild Dog, as well as the endangered Grevy’s zebra, Beisa oryx, and reticulated giraffe, amongst others.
On day 4 of your Kenya Luxury Safari holiday, you will be catching an internal flight to the Masai Mara. The Masai Mara, rooted in ancestral history, is known for its dense predator population and is also one of the regions through which the Great Migration passes from late July – early August until the end of October – November every year – making this a very exciting time to visit this area! In addition to the brilliant wildlife, the region is also home to a large variety of birdlife, and offers beautiful plains landscapes all year round. You will be spending 3 nights here before heading off to Nairobi City for the final part of your Kenya Luxury Safari holiday.
Your trip will end off with a 2-night stay in a tranquil boutique guest house in the capital city of Nairobi. Here you can spend your days relaxing in the beautiful gardens whilst interacting with the resident giraffe, or you might like to venture out and experience some of what the city has to offer – such as the Giraffe Centre and the Karen Blixen Museum.
