Best of Kenya Solo Safari

Inspirational safari holiday to Kenya

The ultimate African safari for the solo traveller, this trip combines two of Africa's most famous safari regions, Kenya's Maasai Mara Reserve and the rolling plains around the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro. Flown by light aircraft throughout, and met at each location, you will be safely guided to two luxury lodges with some of the best views on the continent. First, Ol Donyo Lodge, in 275, 000 acres of private land, bordering Chyulu Hills National Park and owned by 4000 Maasai. From your private plunge pool at your suite, you will look out over the rolling plains towards Mount Kilimanjaro, and if you choose to, you can even sleep out under a canopy of stars on a start bed and listen to the hyenas and lions moving around. Journey with the guides to their village for an authentic cultural experience, or join others on game drives, walking safaris or the cycling and horseriding excursions.

Then it's off to the incredible Angama Mara in the Maasai Mara, one of Africa's most well-known wildlife reserves, a rolling savannah teeming with animals, where you will enjoy shared game drives, walking safaris and even hot air balloon trips. The selling point at the luxurious Angama Mara is undoubtedly the views, one of the views being the site where many of the most memorable scenes from the movie Out of Africa were filmed. A bucket-list trip, this holiday will ensure outstanding photographs and memories to last a lifetime. There will be moments for solitude and quiet contemplation as well as opportunities to interact with other guests and the local staff and guides. For first-time solo safari goers, trust your Mahlatini expert to plan a seamless and safe trip where you will be guided and looked after by our trusted partners on the ground.
