At a glance

Experience the wonderfully varied landscapes, rich culture and iconic wildlife of Kenya on this luxury nine-night safari, staying at some of the country’s most beautifully stylish yet sustainable lodges.

Begin with a stay in Nairobi.  Stay at your pick of hotel, or choose the iconic Giraffe Manor. It might look more like a Scottish country house than something you would expect to find in Africa, but the graceful giraffes poking their heads through the windows for a feed at breakfast will remind you where you are.

From here, fly north to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Enjoy activities including horse riding, walking, mountain-biking, night and day game drives and fishing.

Next up is the Samburu region before ending with three nights in the Maasai Mara. There are few better places to be between June and September when the legendary migration of wildebeest pass through, and this region sees incredibly prolific wildlife year-round.

The most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild giraffe who may visit while you're having breakfast. Sometimes they even poke their long necks into the windows in the hope of getting a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary. This will be a truly memorable experience to begin your Kenyan adventure.

Riding on horseback through the bush, accompanied by an experienced guide, will give you an unparalleled opportunity to explore the wilderness in its most natural form, without the sound of a car engine or the sight of a road. Many game species allow horses to approach very close, so you may ride next to animals such as giraffe, zebra, impala, waterbuck, eland, ostrich and baboons. Combined with the stunning scenery and varied terrain, this is a riding experience not to be missed. Your horse will be be matched to you based on your level of confidence, whether an amateur or experienced rider.

Bush walks Bush walks

Head out on foot with a guide to discover the secrets and beauty of Lewa's wilderness. Keep your eyes out for larger animals as well as some of the smaller species that call the bush home.
