In Kenya’s rugged north, the Ewaso Nyiro River gives life to both wildlife and cattle of the pastoralist Samburu who give their name to this region. Staying at a lodge owned in partnership with these people, head out on game drives and walking safaris in search of lion, leopard, cheetah and elephant as well as species only found in northern Kenya such as Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich and the gerenuk antelope.
But the real draw here is a chance to learn about Samburu culture, joining them on camel rides and visiting the home villages of your guides for a genuine personal insight into life here. The sundowners are spectacular too.
Traditional afternoon tea at the manor is a delightful occasion not to be missed. Relax in the tranquil gardens with a giraffe or two in view, as you enjoy a tasty assortment of cookies, cakes, sandwiches, scones and fruit platters.
Sitting down to breakfast with giraffes is certainly a unique experience. You’ll either have breakfast in the main manor or in the Garden Manor breakfast room, depending on where you are staying. Their long tongues won’t be after your breakfast though, but rather dried pellets of grass, molasses and corn.
Nairobi's Sheldrick Wildlife Trust cares for orphaned baby elephants, rhinos and other animals. A private visit lets you enjoy a one-to-one meeting with a keeper and their elephant, usually as the orphan is being settled down for the night in the stables.
The Maasai Mara is one of the world's most important conservation and wilderness area, hosting an astounding diversity and density of wildlife year-round, especially lions, leopards, cheetahs and elephants. Between July and October, millions of wildebeest and zebra cross from the Serengeti in Tanzania to create an awe-inspiring natural spectacle. From your luxury safari camp, head out on action-packed game drives and get an introduction to Maasai culture. For an even more spectacular view, take to the sky at dawn in a hot air balloon.
