The camps and lodges are all small and romantic, the landscapes rich in culture and the wilderness brought alive by knowledgeable guides who are generally from the area.

Because this safari uses small intimate properties, there are no fixed daily activities or schedules.

All meals and most drinks are included. Activities include day and night game drives, visits to the rhino sanctuary, horse and camel-riding, picnics and bush dinners, sunset drinks, tennis, village visits, mountain-biking, sleeping under the stars and much more.

10 Days Classic Bush Home Kenya Luxury Holiday Flying Safari Detailed Itinerary

Day 1 : Nairobi Arrival


Upon Arrival at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta international airport, you will be met by our Professional Safari Escort and transferred to Ngong House. The remainder of the day at leisure.

Overnight Accommodation: Ngong House 
Meal Plan: {Lunch & Dinner}

Ngong House
Ngong House lies on the outskirts of Langata, on the land once cultivated as Karen Blixen’s coffee estate.

Paul Verleysen, the charming owner, had the concept of a private home that would also offer exclusive and personalized service to a small number of guests.

His creation complies perfectly with the self-imposed brief and, in addition, offers the ultimate luxuries of space, light and true style.

Accommodation comprises five wooden houses raised on stilts with peerless views of the misty Ngong Hills and the surrounding countryside.

There is also a further bedroom within the attractive original house. The furnishings and decorative artefacts are with very few exceptions, resolutely sourced within Africa, and primarily Kenyan.

The furniture may be constructed from camphorwood, which mellows to a rich dark patina with age, or perhaps, romantically, made from hardwood sleepers from the old Mombasa-Nairobi Railway. Each “tree-house” has its own spirit and ambience.

The beautifully intricate hand-carved furniture of Lamu features in one, whereas another features a clear and tranquil blue combined with the strong lines of wrought iron pieces.

Generous four-poster beds graces the upper-level bedrooms, crisp cottons and feather pillows promise luxurious nights sleep.

On the lower level the spacious living area has a large sofa to sink into, comfy chairs and an intimate dining area.

The veranda is the ideal place from which to bask in the sun, take afternoon tea, observe the teeming birdlife or gaze into the sunset.

The cuisine is of the highest quality, imaginatively prepared using mouthwatering fresh ingredients.

Meals may be served in the elegant dining room, under the shady trees, or in the covered yet open-sided dining area in the gardens in which a roaring fire is lit on chillier evenings.

Enormous care is taken with presentation; flowers, hand-made glasses and beautiful plates with rich glazes glow by the soft light of many candles. It’s a truly inspirational place.


Day 2: Nairobi – Fly Lewa Downs

After an early breakfast you will have a private transfer to Nairobi Wilson Airport. Once checked in you will board the morning flight to Lewa Downs.

Upon arrival at Lewa Airstrip you will be met and transferred to Lewa Conservancy at Craig Family residence – Wilderness Trails.

Overnight Accommodation: Lewa Wilderness Trails
Meal Plan: {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

Lewa Downs

One of Kenya’s original ranches, Lewa Downs has been the Craig family home since 1924 when the Craig grandparents came from England and began raising cattle here.

Now incorporated in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which includes Anna Merz’s highly respected Ngare Sergoi Rhino Sanctuary and the Ngare Ndare forest, the area is committed to the conservation of the extremely diverse indigenous wildlife and habitat, as well as benefiting the local community by providing employment, schools and clinics.

Set in stunning arid landscape Wilderness Trails is an oasis of comfort and tranquility. Six cottages in the grounds of the main house provide accommodation for guests.

Cool and restful, the rooms all have the stylish wooden furniture that is made on the estate, fresh, simple fabrics and bathrooms in which to relax. The large sitting and dining room is eclectically decorated in true country house style.

A highly polished games table, generous vases of brightly colored flowers from the gardens, a vast coffee table, seriously comfy chairs – they all intensify the travelers sense of being a guest in a friend’s house.

The delicious meals are made entirely from the freshest of produce, all grown on the estate and are often taken alfresco in a pretty loggia with a twig roof covered in vines.

Wilderness Trails is a wonderful base from which to explore the fauna and flora of the area.

Game drives are in custom four-wheel drive vehicles and, because it is a private conservancy, you may also go on night drives which will allow you to see nocturnal animals.

Horseback safaris, on very gentle steeds, allow close encounters with the wildlife, while a camel safari is not to be missed!

Other facilities include a lovely swimming pool of muted aquamarine that is far more in keeping with the landscape than a brighter color would be.

The side of the pool appears to drop away to the valley below permitting fabulous panoramic views.

A large thatched pool house contains colonial style furniture, games, magazines and an array of the softest straw-colored towels. The tennis court is also popular.

Amidst the teeming mass of wildlife in the Masai Mara area, Rekero’s tented camp is currently inside the Masai Mara Game Reserve, very close to the confluence of the Mara and Talek rivers.

This mobile camp is ideally situated for the annual migration, which is the movement of one million wildebeest and other animals from the Serengeti through the Masai Mara in Kenya.

The camp is set up seasonally (June – October, December – March) and caters for between four and twelve guests.
