Tour Location

Nairobi Situated in along the Nairobi River in beautiful Kenya, the capital of Nairobi is East Africa's most cosmopolitan city. It serves as an excellent starting point for African safari trips around Kenya. Nairobi is Africa’s 4th largest city and is a vibrant and exciting place, and although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief, there are some fascinating attractions: its cafe culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably just 20 minutes from the city centre wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve. Make sure you pay a visit to the elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.   Karen Country Club Golf Course Karen Country Club was founded in 1937 and boasts being one of the oldest golf clubs in Kenya. The country club features an 18 hole golf course, restaurant, spa and nail bar and accommodation facilities that overlook the second hole of the golf course.   Giraffe Centre The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.W. Kenya) also known as the Giraffe Centre is a non-governmental, non-profit making organization, which was founded by Betty and Jock Leslie-Melville in 1979. This was in a bid to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, which had lost its natural habitat in Western Kenya to agriculture and there were only 130 left in the wild. Funds were raised and 4 herds of the Rothschild giraffes were moved to 4 parks namely Lake Nakuru National Park, Mwea Game Reserve, Ruma National Park and Nasalot Game Reserve.   The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honor of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation. Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and it's wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. To date the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished it's long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in care.   Sigona Golf Club Kikuyu, just north west of Nairobi, is the home of this exclusive golf club. Sigona promises the ultimate golfing experience on a tough, but pleasant eighteen-hole course. Surrounded by gorgeous flowers, lush greenery and tropical bird life, this club offers a swimming pool, bar and children’s playground – providing hours of leisure and luxury for its members.   Lake Naivasha Lake Naivasha is the highest of the Great Rift Valley Lakes and despite having no outlet, it is one of only two Rift Valley freshwater lakes. This beautiful lake is fringed by papyrus and acacia trees, a unique geologic landscape and supports a vast array of over 450 bird species. It serves as the main drinking hole for wildlife in the area such as zebra, eland, hippo, waterbuck, buffalo and much more. Visitors can look forward to excellent game viewing, intriguing night safaris, boating excursions around the lake as well as to Crescent Island for spectacular bird watching opportunities. Other popular activities include: guided nature walks, horse riding, village visits and tours to neighbouring national parks.   Crescent Island Game Sanctuary There is just one “Crescent Island Game Park”. Located on Lake Naivasha, Kenya in the Great Rift Valley. It is one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya and is Naivasha’s best-kept secret. Guides are on a first come first serve basis, for whom there is no charge, but they should be given a tip. Surrounded by water, it is actually a peninsula and is accessible by boat from East or West as well as by road. From the top of the hill, there is a 360-degree view across the Lake from Longonot to Hell’s Gate to the Mau Escarpment to Eburu and onto the Aberdares. Walking along the ridge in the golden hour before sunset whilst watching the animals grazing with the water shimmering beyond, is what Africa is all about.   Masai Mara The Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form Africa’s most famous wildlife park, the Masai Mara National Reserve. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many, then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The undeniable highlight of the Masai Mara National Reserve is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is known as the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. Large prides of lions, elephants, giraffes, gazelles and eland can also be spotted in the reserve. Aside from horse riding safaris and traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Mara plains has become almost essential.   Muteleu Maasai Traditional Village Located in Merrueshi close to the Amboseli National Park in Kenya, Muteleu Maasai Traditional Village is an eco-camp originally used by Maasai Moran for special ceremonies and cultural activities. The camp consists of 10 traditional houses built in Maasai-style using only local materials. Amenities such as beds, flush toilets, lighting powered by solar panels and hot water for a shower, are offered in each house. Delicious traditional Kenyan cuisines are served daily. Other camp structures include a kitchen and a dining area. Guest can enjoy activities such as taking care of cattle, getting water, collecting wood, making craft items, as well as dancing and singing around the campfire at night.
