Day 1: Welcome to Kenya

Nairobi

Upon arrival at Nairobi International Airport, a representative from Giraffe Manor will meet you and transfer you by road to the manor.

Arrive in time for lunch which you can enjoy with the resident Rothschild’s giraffe that gives the manor its name and unique character. The giraffes vie for guests’ attention by poking their heads through the dining room windows. After lunch, enjoy a stroll through the gardens or visit the Giraffe Centre.

In the evening, enjoy a private dinner on the balcony of your room, outside on the terrace, or in the dining room.

Day 2

Laikipia

Today you’ll be transferred to Wilson Airport for a scheduled flight to Nanyuki. You’ll be collected from Nanyuki airstrip and driven to Solio Lodge.

This transfer will become a game drive, arriving at the lodge in time for lunch. Spend the day relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings of Solio Lodge or go on an afternoon game drive.

In the evening, enjoy a sundowner out in the bush or at the outdoor viewing deck, and finish off the day with a succulent three-course meal and some wine back in the main lodge.

Solio Lodge
Day 3

Laikipia

Today you have the option of a morning walk, bike ride, or horseback safari in nature, followed by an afternoon or 4×4 night safari.

If you’re more adventurous, there’s the option to take a helicopter safari around Mount Kenya to see the breathtaking views of the area or a day trip to the Aberdares for trout fishing.

Note that the helicopter safari and trout fishing must be pre-booked and are at an additional cost.

Solio Lodge
Day 4

Laikipia

We recommend that you go to look for the elusive and rare Bongo at Aberdare, after which you’ll return to Solio Lodge for some rest and relaxation.

If you haven’t experienced the multitude of activities on offer, today is the perfect opportunity to do so before your departure tomorrow.

Day 5

Samburu National Park

Have an early breakfast before your transfer to Nanyuki for the scheduled flight to Samburu. The flight lands at Buffalo Springs, with a two-hour road transfer to Sasaab through the Samburu National Park.

Arrive at Sasaab Lodge for a light lunch and then take a siesta in the heat of the day. In the afternoon you’ll start your quest to find Samburu’s Special Five, with Reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra as rare highlights.

Sasaab Lodge
Day 6

Samburu National Park

You can do as much or as little as you want at Sasaab. Morning and afternoon game drives are always on offer, camel trekking, spa treatments, and bush walks.
A visit to the local Samburu village is recommended to learn about their culture, beliefs, and values.

A foray into the arid wilderness offers the chance to find the rarely-seen gerenuk and Somali ostrich.

Sundowners followed by traditional Samburu celebration ceremony with the sounds of Morani dancers fill the night air dinner under the African sky.

Sasaab Lodge
Day 7

Samburu National Park

You have the option to go fly-camping (overnight away from the lodge at a special set-up mobile camp) into the far-reaching areas of the conservancy, a fabulous activity if you want to experience an unforgettable night under the stars.

You’d probably have to travel a little further into Samburu country to find the last of the Samburu Special Five, the Beisa oryx, but well worth the journey.

Enjoy your last evening in this special part of the world.

Sasaab Lodge
Day 8: End of safari

You’ll be transferred to Buffalo Springs to connect with your flight back to Wilson airport in Nairobi, followed by a transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International for your flight home.
