5 Nights luxury Safari
5 nights in lavish resorts, two major attractions to explore and numerous activities are some of the highlights of the safari in store for you when you get here. What can hold you back from taking this extraordinary trip?
Heritage Hotels want to pamper you for five days so you can have the most memorable safari in Kenya. This brand has excellent, modern properties in Samburu and Maasai Mara National Reserves, and you will stay in these luxury resorts under the care of a courteous and professional team. Get sumptuous meals and enjoy guided tours of the national reserve to see wildlife, learn about conservation efforts and meet local tribes.
This is a family friendly holiday since Heritage Hotels has activities for kids and a devoted team of naturalists who will teach your children amazing things about the Kenyan wild and its beauty.
Our ground representative will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the prestigious Norfolk Hotel or another exquisite resort within the city, for the night. The Norfolk Hotel is one of the oldest luxury hotels in the country. Its facilities and amenities echo the establishment’s desire to stick to its position as the leading centre of luxury and comfort in the city, reaching out to the modern business or leisure traveller.
The rooms are spick and span, spacious, well lit and serene with the windows shutting out the noise of the bustling streets just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. With a variety of restaurants on site, and an array of cuisines, your taste buds will have a ball. The Cin Cin Wine Bar is our perfect watering hole after a sumptuous indulgence at Tatu Restaurant.
Have breakfast at Norfolk Hotel and head to Wilson Airport for a domestic flight to Samburu National Reserve. Samburu County is in the sun-baked plains of the northern part of Kenya. Getting a luxury resort in this place ensures you enjoy the wild and get back to a serene place in the evening, for exemplary meals and rest. Samburu Intrepids is the best place to do all this since it is a pioneer of luxury accommodation in this northern frontier.
This tented lodge has 28spacious units perched on stilts, overlooking the river. Their raised position gives breathtaking view of the riverine forest from the deck. Check in, on the banks of Ewaso Nyiro River, and start your adventure a few minutes later. This location is superb. It gives you unrivalled view of the oasis of this dry county- the Ewaso Nyiro. View wildlife in the river and the forests around it. Samburu National Reserve is home to the rare five species that are the reticulate giraffe, Beisa’s oryx, the Somali ostrich, gerenuk and Grevy’s zebra.
Explore the national reserve through game drives, bird watching excursions and walking safaris. The guide will take you to the scenic plains and riverine forest to see animals in the reserve. The rugged landscape with rocks jutting out of the ground, and distant hills make a good spot for bush photography.
Don’t worry; you will not be subjected to boring routines. You can start with a game drive, have lunch and go back to the bush to see birds or plan your day in any order. Explore this reserve to see other safari animals such as elephants, lions and leopards.
After an unforgettable stay next to the doum palms along the banks of River Ewaso Nyiro in Samburu, prepare for another round of adventure on the other side of the country. Have breakfast at Samburu Intrepids and head to the airstrip. Fly to Maasai Mara where a road transfer vehicle will take you to Mara Intrepids resort.
This splendid lodge has 30 immaculate tents, facing Talek River. Families have customized family tents that are spacious and furnished to suit the needs of every member of the group. They have a large queen size bed or two twin beds. Just as it is the case in other Heritage Hotel properties, these tents have an African theme with a beautiful combination of colours and decor pieces.
Embark on an afternoon game drive to see this famous reserve and find out why the world talks so much about it. Meet the big five that rule these plains- the lion, buffalo, the leopard, rhino and elephant. Explore the forest to see birds since Maasai Mara is home to over 500 species of birds.
Get back to camp for a sundowner as you watch the sunset and the beauty of the plains. Later, have a sumptuous meal. Get rest ahead of another busy day in the wild.
Wake up to the melodies of different species of birds, the cries of mammals in the bush especially the roars of lions as they prepare to bask under the African sun. Have a delicious breakfast meal and prepare for a full day safari. You can start right outside the camp to see crocodiles and hippos in Talek River.
Enjoy an early morning game drive to explore the plains of Maasai Mara for the last time. Get back to Mara Intrepids for breakfast at 8:30am. About two hours later, board the road transfer vehicle to Ol Kiombo Airstrip for a flight to Nairobi’s Wilson Airport.
