Day 1: Nairobi - Mount Kenya

You'll be collected from the airport or your hotel in Nairobi and then we head to Mount Kenya, arriving at Serena Mountain Lodge.

With magnificent views of the majestic Mount Kenya, the Serena Mountain offers a unique blend of comfort, relaxation and adventure. Raised on stilts above the forest canopy, a timbered drawbridge leads from the forest and up on to the wooden ‘decks’ of the lodge.

Inside, the impression of having boarded a ship is perpetuated by a combination of log panelled walls, timbered game-viewing decks and winding stairs leading to a selection of snugly comfortable, cabin-styled rooms.

Activities include guided walks through the forest, trout fishing in the clear mountain streams, trips to the high moorlands of the mountain, and 5-day luxury climbs of the mountain.

Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Mt Kenya - Samburu Game Reserve

Day 5: Ol Pejeta Conservancy – Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru houses Kenya’s first rhino sanctuary and one of the largest concentrations of black rhinoceros in the world as well as a large population of white rhino.

The park features the picturesque Malaika Waterfalls. Also of interest is an area of 188 km surrounding the lake which is fenced off as a sanctuary to protect Rothschild’s giraffe.

Predators that can be seen here include lion, leopard and large pythons hiding in the dense woodlands which may occasionally be seen crossing roads or dangling from trees.

The Mara is magnificent, home to Kenya’s richest concentration of wildlife and regarded by many travelers as an essential stop on any tour of Africa. When people think of Africa and safari, this is the place they imagine – golden grassland plains pocketed with acacia, wildebeests, zebras, lions, and jackals, all bound together by the cycle of life and death.

Three days here will only scratch at the surface of the wonders of the Mara.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner
