Once a private residence, the main house offers an open plan drawing and dining room area, large veranda and 3 en-suite bedrooms. Tonio’s former art studio offers a separate open plan drawing and dining room area, 2 en-suite bedrooms and 3 separate studio lofts.
Day 2 – Nairobi: After breakfast, you will have a full day private vehicle and guide for touring select parts of Nairobi. Your guide will customize your day to suit your needs, but we recommend visiting the following:
Giraffe Center: This education center gives you an opportunity to feed and get close to endangered Rothschild giraffes.
The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (Elephant Orphanage). Here you can view the 11:00 a.m. public baby elephant feeding, pending availability.
Karen Blixen Museum: “I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills’ … for those lovers of “Out of Africa” the museum will take you back in time to breathe the spirit of the writer and the lives she immortalized.
Local Shopping: Utamaduni – Utamaduni means “cultural heritage” and is a converted house containing arts and crafts shops.
Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (payable locally). Dinner and overnight at Eden Nairobi.
Day 3 – Nairobi / Ol Malo Conservancy: After breakfast, you will be transferred to Nairobi’s Wilson Airport for your shared charter flight to Ol Malo Conservancy. Upon arrival, you will be met by a camp representative and transferred to your camp with game drive en-route. Arrive in time for lunch and an afternoon safari activity. Overnight at Ol Malo Lodge.
Ol Malo Lodge is in a privately-owned game sanctuary on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in Kenya’s wild and beautiful North Eastern Province on a rock escarpment on the edge of the Laikipia Plateau. Each double room has its own veranda and complete privacy. Large picture windows frame a wild, constantly changing landscape. Ol Malo partners with the Samburu Trust to protect and secure the future of the Samburu people and their land through education, conservation, healthcare, water supply, women’s opportunities and eco-tourism.
Days 4, 5 & 6 – Ol Malo Conservancy: Enjoy three full days of activities to experience the wildlife and landscape. Ol Malo lies in the heart of Samburuland and is about experiences. There are no pre-timed game drives or regimented schedules. They have helicopters, safari vehicles, mountain bikes, horses and camels waiting to take you on an adventure. All activities are tailored to pursue your every whim; whether that be riding alongside zebra and giraffe on horseback, dancing in the dust with Samburu warriors, camping out on the open plains, exploring the Suguta Valley in a doors-off helicopter or flying alongside flamingos in Lake Logipi. Overnights and meals at Ol Malo Lodge.
Days 8, 9 & 10 – Masai Mara: After breakfast, transfer to the airstrip for your flight to the Masai Mara. Upon arrival, transfer to your camp with game driving en route. During certain months of the year, the Masai Mara is home to the wildebeest migration. Spend three days in the Mara, where throughout the year, wildlife is plentiful. Activities include early morning, late afternoon and night 4×4 game drives, balloon safaris (at an additional cost), wildlife walks and authentic local village visits. Meals and overnights at Mara Plains.
Mara Plains Camp is a small, high quality, seven-roomed camp under canvas and on raised decks with sweeping views across Kenya’s notable savannahs. Each of the seven tents has deep canvas canopied ceilings; rough-hewn wood floors and accents of East Africa’s rich safari history. Thick Lamu wood doors, deep purples, and brass accents – these small details transport guests to a time and land far away. The well-appointed en-suite facilities (including a deep copper bath) plus the extensive private verandah complete what is genuinely a stunning concept.
Day 11 – Depart: After breakfast, fly to Nairobi. Transfer to Eden Nairobi for lunch, use of a day room and dinner. After dinner, you will be transferred to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your onward flights home, marking the end of your Kenya luxury safari.
