Day 2  Nairobi-Aberdares | Meals: BLD
Heading north after breakfast, you will pass near Thika and continue your journey through some breathtaking scenery dotted with rushing mountain streams and fields of tea and coffee. Arrive at Mountain Lodge in time for lunch and an evening watching for the animals to come to you! Spend the night in this tree lodge set in a forest glade with a waterhole that attracts all sorts of wildlife during the day and night.

Serena Mountain Lodge

Mountain Lodge allows the visitor an up close and personal view of the dense forest which comes alive at dusk with the sounds of animals. It can be reached by a good road passing through coffee, sisal and pineapple plantations. An interesting feature of the waterhole is its center island created in the shape of the African continent.

Each of the Lodge's tastefully decorated and recently refurbished rooms has en suite facilities, and all have ideal view of the waterhole below.  A specially constructed viewing bunker is connected to the lodge by a short tunnel and allows an incredibly close view of game as they come to drink or partake of the salty silt. 

Mountain Lodge is the only "tree lodge" with direct access... no offset hotel acts as an assembly area. Bird watching is especially popular and the naturalist conducts daily safari walks through the forest nearby. In this other worldly setting, the drama of nature plays out daily, beneath the rocky, glacier-covered peaks of nearby Mount Kenya.

Day 3  Sweetwaters Tented Camp | Meals: BLD
Continue further north towards Mt. Kenya today and your tented camp in the heart of the private 24,000 acre Sweetwaters Game Reserve. After lunch, depart for an afternoon game drive, including a visit to the Chimp Sanctuary. The sanctuary was opened in 1993 as part of an agreement between Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Jane Goodall Institute with a goal to take in abused and orphaned chimps from West and Central Africa. Over the years, the chimp population has grown to more than 42. Chimps are very intelligent and social, sharing about 98% of our genetic blueprint.

Surrounded by typical savannah grasslands, Sweetwaters is an oasis. There is also plenty of game. Giraffe, zebra, eland, oryx, waterbuck, elephant, buffalo and cheetah are just a few of the animals you might spot on your game drives. We have included a night game drive during your stay. Night drives are always interesting as it gives you a window into how the evening is spent in the bush.

Sweetwaters Tented Camp

Sweetwaters Tented Camp lies in the heart of privately owned 24,000 acre Sweetwaters Game Reserve, enjoying magnificent views across the game-studded plains to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya. Overlooking a floodlit waterhole, the camp offers visitors an unforgettable opportunity to watch and photograph animals in their natural habitat.

Accommodation is provided in luxuriously appointed tents, set under thatch, with en suite facilities and private verandah. Each tent overlooks the waterhole. Within the quaint, original farmhouse is the dining room, bar and reception.

Day and night game drives by four-wheel drive vehicles, walking safaris escorted by a knowledgeable ranger, bird walks, camel safaris and outdoor dining ensure there is always plenty to do.

Day 4  Sweetwaters-Lake Elementaita | Meals: BLD
Leave Sweetwaters early this morning and drive north-west, stopping in Nyahururu, still known to many as Thomson's Falls for its 237-foot cascade. Continue from here in a more southerly direction to Lake Elementaita. Later this afternoon, take a birdwalk led by an experienced resident naturalist. There are more than 450 bird species on the Soysmbu conservancy, so have your checklist ready.

Lake Elementaita Serena Camp

Uniquely situated on the shoreline of sapphire-blue Lake Elmenteita where hundreds of thousands of birds congregate sits the small and exclusive Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp. This area of breathtaking beauty, also home to many rare species of animals, is less than two hours’ drive from Nairobi and just a short distance to the famous Flamingo filled Lake Nakuru.

Each of the luxury tents have a private verandah, perfect to soak in the gorgeous views of Lake Elementaita. Your tent is outfitted with a mini-bar, electronic safe, telephone and WIFI. When you are not relaxing in your tent, why not take a dip in the pool or pamper yourself with a massage.

Soysambu Conservancy, where Elementaita is set, is a 48,000 acre Wildlife Conservancy, also a RAMSAR site - a wetland of international importance. The alkaline lake’s rocky islands are the only East African nesting site for great white pelicans, while its algae and plankton provides food for vast flocks of flamingos and a multitude of other waterfowl, many of them rare. The Conservancy protects over 450 bird species and 15,000 wild animals. Rothschild giraffes have found a safe haven for breeding here, while a diverse variety of terrain shelters many species - from herds of giant elands to tiny dik-diks and cliff-dwelling klipspringers. Night game-drives offer a unique opportunity to spot nocturnal creatures including the curious-looking aardvark and elusive leopard. Walking is also allowed, with chances to experience the miracles of the bush close-up. Atmospheric bush dinners beneath the stars and spectacular sundowners over this geologically fascinating part of the Great Rift Valley are a few more of the camp’s exciting activities. Lake Nakuru National Park and Kariandusi prehistoric site are also nearby.

Day 5  Lake Elementaita (Lake Nakuru) | Meals: BLD
After an early breafast, leave for nearby Lake Nakuru. At times, Lake Nakuru is a shimmering line of pink, thanks to the hundreds of thousands flamingoes lining its shores. Later, a game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park awaits. In addition to buffalo and zebra, the plains might reveal sightings of the rare Rothschild's giraffe as well as both black and white rhino. Thanks to the park's important concervation program, the rhino population is at 50 and continues to grow. Enjoy a game drive in the park before returning to Lake Elementaita for a leisurely afternoon.

Day 6  Lake Elementaita-Masai Mara | Meals: BLD
We leave the magnificent Rift Valley today and drive to what may be one of the world's most famous national reserve, the Masai Mara. Two nights here provides great opportunities for game drives. Keep your game list handy, as the plains of the Masai Mara are filled with myriad wildlife. Plains game like zebra, wildebeest and buffalo are omnipresent and are perfect for attracting the predators like lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena. Birdlife is simply sensational, with more than 450 species of birds recorded in the park. Keep your binoculars and camera at the ready as you never know when that perfect sighting will appear! After lunch, head out on an afternoon game drive.

Mara Serena Lodge

An interpretation of a traditional Masai Manyatta village of domed huts, Mara Serena Safari Lodge is set on the saddle of a hill where it overlooks the 1,800 square kilometers of rolling plains, woodlands and rivers that make up the Masai Mara Triangle - one of the world's richest wildlife sanctuaries. No other lodge has such a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape or the game and birdlife that inhabit it. It is on this very terrain stretching endlessly before the lodge where the annual migrations take place, where millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle traverse the landscape to feed on the rich new grass and give birth to their young.

Day 7  Masai Mara | Meals: BLD
The day begins with a glorious game drive in the Masai Mara. The Masai Mara is best described with superlatives because everything about the Masai Mara is outstanding and no matter what time of year you visit, game viewing is amazing. Great herds of elephants shuffle across the plains while scores of Thomson's and Grant's gazelle munch the grass on the plains. The gazelle, along with eland, topi, zebra and wildebeest provide quite a variety of food for the predators, so they are also present in abundance - lion, leopard and cheetah al hunt here.

You'll be greeted with a wonderful surprise at the end of your morning game drive, as you arrive at the Hippo Pools along the Mara River to find a scrumptuous bush breakfast laid out for you. Sip coffee and enjoy freshly cooked eggs to order as you listen to the grunts of the hippos below. Return to the lodge for time to relax before another game drive this afternoon.
