Kenya is a country with dramatic contrasts and a endless array of national parks including Lake Nakuru, Amboseli, Samburu, and perhaps one of the world’s richest wildlife reserves, the Masai Mara National Park, showcasing extraordinary wildlife. Add to this the second highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kenya, and the Kenyan coastline with amazing seafood and white sandy beaches to experience one of Africa’s top destinations.
HERE’S A SELECT SAMPLE OF THE KIND OF LODGES WE’LL TAKE YOU TO DURING YOUR EXPLORATION OF KENYA:
Angama Mara is a remarkable owner-run safari lodge inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’. Located high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara overlooks Kenya’s Maasai Mara. Here guests will find a lodge where everything is as it ought to be: two intimate camps of just fifteen tented suites each, a private airfield and access to the Mara below, tailor-made safari days and a famously warm Kenyan welcome.
Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel, set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi. With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, guests often remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa. However, the most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild’s giraffe who may visit morning and evening, sometimes poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.
Mara Plains Camp is a one-of-a-kind, seven tent camp located on the northern boundary of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This intimate camp blends the finest in wildlife viewing with the absolute best of safari hospitality and guiding. Each guest at Mara Plains contributes considerably to the success of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy’s flourishing ecosystem; conservation fees paid safeguard this habitat, while supporting over 1,000 Maasai families. This partnership agreement ensures the survival of an astounding volume and variety of wildlife.
