This exciting fly-in safari itinerary combines adventure and luxury in three areas of Kenya. Travel north and begin in the original home of Elsa the lioness, made famous by the book and movie, Born Free. Elsa's Kopje, widely renowned as one of the most elegant lodges in Africa, offers gorgeous cottages which sit on top of a kopje, with stunning views over the Meru National Park. As Elsa's is the only lodge within the park you're guaranteed a private game viewing experience.
Then travel to Loisaba Tented Camp, situated on the beautiful Loisaba Conservancy in Laikipia. Home to elephant, a healthy population of lion, the rare wild dog and an abundance of other species, here you can experience day and night game drives, horse-riding, camel-trekking, fishing, mountain biking, guided bush walks, cultural experiences with the Samburu people and visits to the anti-poaching sniffer dogs.
End this epic safari adventure with three nights in the legendary Masai Mara, best known for its large concentrations of big cats. Even the dramatic arrival of the Annual Wildebeest Migration (June/July - Octo/Nov) merely adds to an already abundant resident wildlife. Here you will stay at Sand River Masai Mara which sits on the migration route for the millions of wildebeest, zebra and Thompson's gazelle that move between Serengeti and Maasai Mara every year. Situated on a secluded and picturesque site, the camp enjoys stunning views over the Sand River and out to the neighbouring grassy hills and plains of Tanzania. The camp's designers have paid homage to 1920's era of African adventure, so you will not only enjoy exciting game drives, but also be wined and dined in luxury.
