Destination

Nairobi, Kenya

Day 1-2

There are all sorts of good reasons to enjoy a short stay in Kenya's capital city of Nairobi, like visiting the Giraffe Center to hand-feed tame Rothschild's giraffes, and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which rescues orphaned elephants and rhinos. Both are such heartwarming experiences. Also of interest are the Karen Blixen Museum and African curio markets.

Accommodation

House of Waine

1 Night

This grand mansion-style hotel is on the edge of Nairobi's leafy suburbs, close to the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Center and Daphne Sheldrick Wildlife Sanctuary. Start or finish your Kenyan safari in style, with a comfortable stay here.

Destination

Mount Kenya & Laikipia, Kenya

Day 5-8

The Laikipia Plateau stretches from Mount Kenya to the Rift Valley, with more than two million acres of private ranches. This has opened up some ancient migratory corridors for wildlife and a refuge for some rarer species like wild dog, reticulated giraffe and Grevy's zebra. Lodges are spectacular and activities including horseback and camel rides with Samburu guides.

Accommodation

Lewa Safari Camp

3 Nights

Lewa Safari Camp is owned by the Conservancy, with profits reinvested into conservation and community. With 10 percent of Kenya's black rhinos, and 65,000-acres for wildlife to roam, see animals on foot and vehicle, or atop a camel or horse!

Destination

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Day 8-11

There's something about the big skies, endless savanna and red-robed Maasai sharing their tribal lands with the big game of Africa, that's simply captivating. Camps and lodges range from modern Maasai to colonial 'Out of Africa', and most offer hot air balloon rides, which, from July-September, will reveal thousands of wildebeest having migrated here from the Serengeti.

Accommodation

Hemingways Ol Seki Mara

3 Nights

Tented rooms extend along a wooded ridge with panoramic views of the Mara plains. There's no typical day; seek the migration, meet a Maasai family, hike, horseback ride, take a hot air balloon, or sit by the pool!

In Our Travelers' Words

At the end of the day our travelers are most qualified to describe the African safari experience, and they certainly say it best.

The Peacock Family
Multi-Generational Safari

"Our youngest, Emily is almost 7. And mom and dad are in their late 70's. And the rest of us fall somewhere in between - and I can tell you we ALL just had the best time! It's tricky to have a plan that appeals to everyone. The thought of our daily adventure was so exciting, that no one minded the early morning wake-ups - not even the teenagers! They were often the first ones on the jeep - as they couldn't wait to start the drive each day."

The Ousterhout Family
Family Safari

"My father-in-law had always wanted to go to Africa, and invited us all to go with him to celebrate his 80th birthday. We went with no expectations, and the trip was beyond anything we could have imagined. In each camp we were exhilarated to be so unbelievably close to animals. Our guides really turned the safari into an educational experience for the girls with in-depth discussions on not just the wildlife, but also history, culture, and the relationship between tourism and the environment. It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime trip – but we hope to return."

Tamar Sherer & Chris Cooper
Active Safari

"This was our fourth trip to Africa, and by far the best. We keep going back because we love the whole experience: the people, the wildlife, their behavior, the environment, the accommodations, the music, everything. We chose Bushtracks for this custom adventure with two goals: to see the migration and to see the gorillas. Experiencing the migration was like witnessing a miracle in process. Could it get any better? Yes - the gorilla treks were the most exhausting thing we've ever done, but worth every exhilarating ache. Amazing!"
