Best of Laikipia and Maasai Mara

Inspirational safari holiday to Kenya

A 3-in-1 Kenya safari, this trip combines the best of the Laikipia Plateau with a safari in the plains of the Maasai Mara offering you interesting contrasts of scenery and wildlife. Begin at Lewa House, located at the very heart of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in the northern Laikipia region. The house is set on top of a hill with extensive views over gentle rolling hills with Mount Kenya to the south and the rugged Mathews Range and the sacred mountain of Ol Olokwe to the north. You will sleep in one of the cottage style rooms but a stay here is about being out in the bush watching game, appreciating how conservation of rare species works, understanding the challenges for communities living nearby and savouring this ancient and diverse environment.

From here you will travel to the luxurious, eco-safari retreat, Segera Retreat, a treasured haven for Kenya's most celebrated wildlife species, all seen on several flexible activities which include day and night drives, walks, camels, sleep outs and cultural visits. Conclude this epic Kenya adventure with a stay at Bateleur Camp, set among forests on the very edge of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, famous for sightings of the big cats, the wildebeest migration (July to Oct) and a host of other game. During your stay you will be wined and dined and expertly guided on exciting activities from game drives, sundowner drinks and walks to hot air balloon safaris and bush meals.
