This 8 Days Kenya Wilderness Experience is recommended to give you amazing wildlife sightings in Kenya. The journey is set on two of Kenya’s best wildlife and scenery; the Masai Mara and Laikipia Plateau, with the first night spent in a Nairobi hotel overlooking the impressive Nairobi National Park with a great introduction to Kenya’s classic safari amenities. Enquire Now Laikipia sprawls on the edge of the Northern Kenyan Frontier, stretching from Mount Kenya’s slopes to the rim of the Great Rift Valley. A natural haven made up of ranches and conservancies. Vast open plains in the shadow of the snow-capped silhouette of Mount Kenya create a tranquil and secluded setting, where game drives encounter a plethora of wildlife, including endangered species such as black rhino, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, and wild dogs with few other vehicles in sight.
Day 1: Arrival – Nairobi
On arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, a Gorilla Adventure Tours safari guide will pick you and transfer you 12 km (20 minutes) to Hotel Olo Serani, where you’ll spend the night. After checking in at the hotel, if you have time on your day, you’ll have a chance to checkout Nairobi’s tourist attractions like the Giraffe Centre and the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary. You’ll also spend some time with orphaned elephants and Rothchild’s giraffe to compliment your outstanding views of the Savannah plains from the hotel.

Day 2-3: Ol Pejeta Conservancy
After breakfast, a guide will pick you up at the hotel and transfer you to the Wilson Airport, Nairobi’s domestic airport. Your country flight will land at Nanyuki Airstrip somewhere on the Laikipia Plateau, north of Nairobi capital city. You’ll be lodging at the Ol Pejeta Bush Camp located along the Ewaso Nyiro River for the next two nights.
The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 360 km² not-for-profit wildlife conservancy in Central Kenya’s Laikipia County.

From the Laikipia Plateau, you’ll take a quick flight onto a more flatter and wide open Masai Mara National Reserve and check into the magnificent Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp. Sprawled along the Saparingo River on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment, where riverine forest meets the sweeping plains in the seasonal path of the awe-inspiring Great Migration, Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp provides an authentic dose of African wildlife, delivered with legendary Kenyan hospitality. Whether it’s migration season or not, Masai Mara provides exceptional family safari experiences on the Savannah plains. You’ll take morning and afternoon game drives to the Savannah plains to catch predator action. Lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wildebeest, elephant, buffalo, crocodile, and giraffe are among the heavyweights you can quickly see on a game drive.
