About Your Trip

Venture into the Kenyan wilderness in search of lions, leopards, elephants and more, while enjoying the comforts of luxury accommodation on this seven-day adventure. From Nairobi, you’ll set off towards the mountains of the Aberdare National Park for your first game drives. Head west to Lake Nakuru in the Great Rift Valley, where you’ll have an opportunity to spot elusive leopards and rhinos. You’ll then continue to the Loita Hills to gain an insight into Maasai culture, before arriving in the grassy plains of the Maasai Mara – one of the prime places in Africa to spot the Big Five.

Covid Safety

Your safety and wellbeing are our top priority, so we’ve put the following measures in place on all our TRIPS:
  • Our average group size is 10 people (max 18), which gives you all the security of being in a group whilst avoiding a crowd.
  • Our private vehicles have daily assigned seating, and every day they undergo deep cleaning of all surfaces.
  • Where possible, we use small/ boutique accommodation – this means fewer guests and reduced exposure to other travellers.
  • We require all accommodation providers to share protocols around the extra health and hygiene measures they are taking.
  • Included activities are exclusive to our group wherever possible, to minimise contact with others.
  • Covid-19 negative test results or vaccine certificates may be required. Please check the entry requirements for the destination you are travelling to. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
  • We recommend you confirm all guidance on official government sites and check that you are able to travel with your travel insurance issuer. Your travel insurance may be invalidated if you travel against government advice. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
