Dates & Prices

What an amazing combination - Kenya and Victoria Falls. From game viewing across the plains of Kenya to the sound of millions of gallons of water crashing over Victoria Falls, this 11-day safari does not disappoint.

Start your adventure in Kenya where your first stop is the Lakes Region and your luxury lodge on the banks of Lake Naivasha. Birdlovers, keep your binoculars handy as birdlife is prolific. Next stop is the incomparable Masai Mara. Don't be surprised if you see the Big Five on your game drives, as they are all here!

Then, take the flight directly to Livingstone, Zambia, where a short transfer takes you across the border into Zimbabwe. Spend three glorious days in Victoria Falls - walking through the rain forest to see the Falls as well as enjoying a delightful dinner on your sunset cruise. We packed in a day in Chobe National Park - where you game view by both water and land.

Are you ready? Let's go!

Day 2  NAIROBI-LAKE NAIVASHA | Meals: BLD
This morning, transfer to Wilson airport for the scheduled flight to Loldia Airstrip in the Great Rift Valley. Lodge vehicles are on hand to take you to the lodge arriving in time for lunch on the lawn overlooking Mt Longonot. Afternoon at leisure on the farm, witnessing the prolific variety of birdlife on the lake and the lake shore. Dinner in the traditional dining room.

Loldia House



At Loldia House you?ll experience the life of Kenya?s early settlers, the pioneers who cleared the forests and first farmed the rich highlands.

Loldia ranch was established by a family who trekked by ox-wagon from South Africa a century ago. Today their descendants still own the land. The original farmhouse is managed for visitors by Governors? Camps. It?s an ideal spot to relax, taste the pleasures of Kenyan country life and explore the Great Rift Valley.

Loldia House, built in the Second World War, nestles under ancient Acacia trees. Lush lawns run down to the shores of Lake Naivasha, the Great Rift Valley?s highest and purest lake. Indigenous plants and flowers fill the gardens.

There are beautiful views of the dormant volcano, Mount Longonot. Wild animals roam free on the farm. Small antelope wander through the gardens. In the evenings hippo munch quietly by the waterside.

We?ve kept the original character of the house: comfy chairs surround a huge fireplace; paintings by an artist who lives on the farm hang on the walls; a deep and shady veranda to relax on and sunbeds in the garden.

In the main house there?s a choice of four en-suite double rooms, with original furniture. And three more rooms in the specially-built Loldia cottage which has it?s own sitting-room, fire and panoramic lake-views.

Mouth-watering meals, with fish and shrimp from the lake, are served under the trees or in the old dining room. Britain?s Country Life Magazine even described Loldia?s manager as "probably the best butler in the world".

Day 3  LAKE NAIVASHA | Meals: BLD
After an early breakfast, drive to Lake Nakuru National Park. Morning game drive around Lake Nakuru, famous for its abundance of flamingos and large variety of water birds. Lake Nakuru is also one of Kenya's Rhino Sanctuaries and large numbers of Rhinos are regularly seen, along with good sightings of Leopard. Lunch is served under the Acacia trees overlooking the lake. Return to Loldia later this afternoon.

Day 4  LAKE NAIVASHA-MASAI MARA | Meals: BLD
Breakfast IS served on the lawns of Loldia House. After breakfast you will be transferred to the Loldia airstrip for the light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara. Enjoy a short game drive en route to the camp. Settle into camp, lunch in camp, after lunch relax in camp and then head out on afternoon game drive to explore Masai Mara National Reserve. Return to the camp around sundown - time to freshen up and enjoy pre-dinner drinks around the campfire.

Governors Tented Camp



The setting is magical. So much so that almost a century ago it was reserved, exclusively, for Kenya’s colonial Governors and their royal visitors. Now Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with hippo and crocodile.

Some of the 38 tents line the riverbank, with uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains. Created in 1972 Governors’ Camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best. Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suit bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets.

Each morning a breakfast feast is prepared over blazing coals: mountains of bacon, eggs the way you like them, fresh milk flown-in daily, hot-baked croissants, exotic fruits, and freshly-brewed Kenya coffee.

Lunch, like breakfast is a buffet, this time roast meats hot and cold, fresh salads and delicious desserts. Both meals are served on the shady riverbank with views across the Mara’s plains.

Day 5 & 6  MASAI MARA | Meals: BLD
For the next two days, explore the Mara on your three daily game drives. Set out early in the morning for game viewing at dawn, returning to the camp for breakfast and a short siesta. A midday game drive returns before lunch and a later afternoon game drive returns just in time for sundowners.

Because of the Mara's varied landscape (from forests to open plains), it supports a great variety of wildlife. You will almost certainly see the Big Five here - can you name them? (They are lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard and rhino.) Did you know that the name "Big Five" is not based on the size of the animals, but rather goes back to the early hunting days, when these five animals were the most prized for hunters? You will also see an abundance of plains game, among them wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, topi and gazelle. Can you tell the difference between a Masai giraffe and a reticulated giraffe? (The markings of a Masai giraffe are muted, so that the lines almost appear to run together, while the reticulated giraffe markings are very distinct, almost forming individual boxes.)

Bird-lovers take note --the Mara is also a haven for a wide variety of birds -- almost 500 species have been recorded. Be on the lookout for eagles -- over 16 species may be found, as well as six species of vultures, 8 of stork, 4 of bustard (including the Kori bustard) and nine species of sunbird. Frequently spotted is the exquisite lilac-breasted roller.

Day 7  MASAI MARA-NAIROBI | Meals: BL
Fly back to Nairobi this morning. Stop for lunch before a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum provides time to walk the grounds and picture life in the days the famous author of "Out of Africa" lived here. As you walk through the home and stroll the grounds, you might see some replicas that appeared in the famous movie, "Out of Africa".

Then it's on to feed the giraffes at the Giraffe Center. Originally founded in 1979 by the late Jock Leslie-Melvile (a Kenyan of British descent) and his wife the late Betty Leslie Melvile (an American), the center is now called the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya with a goal of becoming the leading wildlife conservation education organization for the youth of Kenya. At the Giraffe Center you will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the giraffes by feeding them from a specially built elevated platform. When the giraffes hear the familiar sound of pellets being poured, they will quickly stick their head in to be first in line. Watch out, those long tongues are quick to grab a pellet!

Continue to the Crowne Plaza Nairobi Airport hotel where you spend the night.

Day 8  NAIROBI-LIVINGSTONE-VICTORIA FALLS | Meals: B

Day 10  VICTORIA FALLS | Meals: B
An exciting day begins with a visit to the "smoke that thunders", amazing Victoria Falls. Stop at various lookout points to try and take that perfect photo - but watch out for the spray from the Falls. You will quickly see what this is one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World. Your walking tour takes you through the misty rain forest which flanks the Falls. Stop and listen to the power of millions of gallons of water crash into the gorges below. Continue on to a nearby village to learn about customs that have been carried on generation to generation. You will have an opportunity to visit an actual homestead in the village and talk to those who live and work there. As you leave, you can browse the village curio shop filled with a wide variety of homemade crafts.
