By Vehicle Travel by road to Ole Sereni
1 night Ole Sereni Nairobi

Ole Sereni is ideally located for an uncomplicated overnight stay in Nairobi. Its location opposite Nairobi National Park means it is not unusual for guests to spot a rhino or the odd gazelle while enjoying dinner.

The sympathetically furnished rooms could be better soundproofed. However, the hotel has a good outdoor restaurant where guests can sit comfortably in the evening. It also boasts an outdoor pool with bar, a large indoor restaurant and a rooftop bar.

By Plane Flight to Tortilis Camp
3 nights Tortilis Camp Amboseli National Park

Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped umbrella thorn tree, the Acacia Tortilis, which surrounds the camp, With Mount Kilimanjaro peering down over the entire camp, each of Tortilis’ guest tents has a glorious view of the mountain. The 16 tents are all spacious, with king or twin beds, elegant en-suite bathrooms and spacious verandahs.

There is a main lounge, bar and dining area, all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs. Within the lush gardens, the swimming-pool is shaded by palms and acacia Tortilis, a haven for tropical birds. The pool has bar service and board games.

The Private House and Family Tent are located slightly separate to the main camp, upon the hill where they share a pool and enjoy magnificent views of Kilimanjaro.

Location
Tortilis Camp is located in the private conservancy Kitirua bordering Amboseli on the western edge of the National Park.

Amboseli became a wildlife sanctuary in the 1940s and was declared a national park in 1974. Amboseli can be very dry and dusty, but the permanent swamps and lakes sustain big numbers of elephants and plains game. It is probably here, at Amboseli National Park, where you encounter Africa's largest and most beautiful big-tusked elephants. Largely untouched by poaching, the park supports about 1500 of these great animals. A photo of an elephant with snow-capped Kilimanjaro in the background is the number-one subject for most vistors and worth the entire trip.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, rises more than 5000m above the Amboseli plains. The swamps in Amboseli are fed by rain and meltwater from the peaks of Kilimanjaro.

By Plane Flight to Sirikoi
3 nights Sirikoi Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Laikipia

As a small and intimate family-owned safari lodge, Sirikoi offers a sure sense of exclusivity and high level service, but also manages to be welcoming, comfortable and unpretentious.

The main lodge and dining deck, four luxury tents, Sirikoi Cottage and private Sirikoi House are perfectly positioned along the spring-fed Sirikoi stream, from which the lodge derives its name. All buildings have a view of the lawns leading out onto the wetland and waterhole, which has become a favorite passage and sanctuary for wildlife.

Each accommodation has a private outside deck to make the most of "armchair game viewing". All guest tents are spacious and tastefully designed, with unique decor touches, a comfortable sitting area, free-standing bathtub, rain-shower and fireplaces. The Cottage (4 guests) and private House (6 guests) have two and three separate bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, private living and dining rooms and decks.

Sirikoi House comes with a private vehicle and guide, as well as chef and team of staff. The cozy main mess or lounge is decorated with a combination of African art and textiles, impressive bronze wildlife sculptures, handmade furniture and fascinating artifacts collected by the family over four generations.

Sirikoi’s beautiful infinity pool is perfectly refreshing in the hot midday sun. The lodge offers an incredible farm to plate dining experience. The one-acre organic garden is a hidden gem found just behind the lodge. Avocado, banana, berries - over 80 fruits, vegetables and herbs from the garden make up the majority of the lodge’s fresh produce. A place to feel spoilt in a very authentic way.

Location
Sirikoi Lodge is surrounded by 68,000 acres of the pure wilderness of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (Lewa Downs). The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an award-winning model for community conservation. Starting with only 15 black rhinos in 1984, Lewa’s rhino population has since risen steadily, making Lewa a true rhino conservation success story in East Africa.

Sirikoi is just a 20 minute drive west from the Lewa airstrip, which is served by both private charters and scheduled flights from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport – a 50 minute flight away.

Location

By Plane Flight to Richard's Camp
4 nights Richard's Camp Maasai Mara, Mara North Conservancy

Richard's River Camp is part of the private Mara North Conservancy. The nearby Njageteck River and the permanent waters of the Ngoyanai springs attract an abundance of wildlife to the area surrounding the camp.

With just seven tents, the camp offers a truly private experience and reflects the spirit of owners Richard Roberts & Liz. Richard himself grew up in the Maasai Mara, in the Ol Chorro Conservancy, where his parents were active nature conservationists. The tents are stylishly furnished, each with a walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom and outdoor area with seating. To the front of the lodge hang hammocks, and cushions are scattered around the meadow, which adds to the camp’s relaxed and romantic atmosphere.

For families, there is a large tent comprising two en-suite tents joined by a common living room.

Location
Richard's River Camp sits in the Mara North Conservancy (324 km²), which borders to the north with the actual Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The conservancy is an amalgamation of some 800 Maasai landowners and twelve safari camps, all of who have joined forces to offer their land to sustainable tourism.

The wildlife in the Mara North is fantastic and exciting game drives are guaranteed. The number of vehicles here is naturally much lower than the publically accessible Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

The camp is reached by air from Nairobi Wilson via the Mara North Airstrip; flight time from Nairobi Wilson is approximately 45 minutes
