This trip is a solo traveller’s dream! No single supplement is payable at a thrilling range of properties from Nairobi to Lewa to the Maasai Mara. Featuring game drives with no more than five other travellers, it is exceptionally good value.

The adventure begins with a stop-off stay in Nairobi, before you head out to two superb safari areas – Lewa Conservancy and the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Your stay in the Maasai Mara is split between the reserve itself and one of its wildlife-rich conservancies, so you get the best of both worlds. All the properties we have selected for the trip provide a friendly atmosphere, but there is also the opportunity to spend time in your own company if you prefer. And you will enjoy exactly the same accommodation as all of the other guests, with a double bed and en-suite facilities all to yourself. There is a fantastic circuit discount available, making for an amazing value safari.

Ololo Safari Lodge is the first destination. This is a farmhouse property situated on the southern border of Nairobi National Park. After a night here, you will fly to Lewa Safari Camp, which offers very comfortable accommodation in the far west region of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. The next stop is Sand River Maasai Mara, a 1920s-style tented camp with a fabulous riverside location. And finally, you will drive to the Mara North Conservancy, ending your trip at Elephant Pepper Camp. This property provides luxurious accommodation and a great range of activities too.

On the second day of your trip, you will fly to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, for your stay at Lewa Safari Camp. This property is one of 15 boutique lodges owned and operated by Elewana, a company well known for providing high-quality safari throughout East Africa. This camp has a friendly vibe, which suits solo explorers very well. The communal areas include a pleasant lounge, dining area, bar, and swimming pool – and there is even table tennis in an outdoor lounge. You will stay in an en-suite safari tent, a category of accommodation boasting spectacular views over the conservancy. Activities at Lewa Safari Camp focus on getting out and seeing the wildlife, on game drives, guided walks, horse rides, and camel rides too. There is plenty to see in the conservancy – lots of big cats, rhino, elephant, buffalo, the Grévy’s zebra, and an abundance of other plains game. The birding is equally impressive, and you can also enjoy cultural visits to a nearby village that is home to the Samburu.

Now it’s time to fly to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Your time here is spent at Sand River, also listed in the Elewana portfolio. This property has a lovely location, in the shade of trees on the banks of Sand River. Its communal spaces are absolutely lavish, featuring plush seating, classic storage chests, and Persian rugs in the lounge, and super-smart leather seating around chic separate tables in the dining area. You can dine outside too, take a dip in the property’s plunge pool, and perhaps challenge a fellow traveller to a game of billiards. The 1920s style of the main areas continues into the guest accommodation – each tent has a four-poster bed, exquisite leather-and-brocade seating, and the most elegantly draped curtains we have ever seen. Sand River is without doubt a top-spec base from which to explore the Maasai Mara. Game drives from camp offer outstanding opportunities to view all of the Big Five, as well as numerous other predators and herbivores. As in Lewa, there are oodles of birds. At extra cost, hot air balloon safaris are available too.

Days 7-9 Mara North Conservancy

For the final part of your super solo safari, you will transfer by road to Elephant Pepper Camp, in the Mara North Conservancy. This is an Elewana property too. Elephant Pepper has a remote location yet resides at the beating heart of the Maasai Mara ecosystem, so there is no compromise when it comes to viewing wildlife. This is a very homely camp, with a comfy lounge-and-bar tent in addition to a dining tent set with a long table where everyone eats together and swaps safari stories. The guest tents are simple, but they have all the essentials. Recently the camp was refurbished, and now there is running water in place of bucket showers. An exciting assortment of activities is on offer here – day and night game drives, guided walks, and cultural visits. Wildlife sightings in Mara North are just as impressive as they are in the national reserve, making for a grand finale to the end of your safari.

Board basis and activities:
Full-board accommodation, including all meals, a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and a laundry service.

On Day 10, you will fly out of the Mara North Conservancy to Nairobi’s international airport, to connect onto your international flight home.
