This is a classic Big Five safari in Kenya’s finest safari areas! It features great game viewing in the Lewa Conservancy and in the world-famous Maasai Mara. Elewana collection is offering a 20% discount at all safari properties.

The first property you’ll visit is Nairobi’s Ole Sereni, a luxurious hotel conveniently situated close to Nairobi’s international airport. Next is Lewa Safari Camp, a former cattle ranch that is now a fantastic eco-friendly property! After enjoying a lot of safari activities here, you’ll transfer to Sand River Masai Mara, a sumptuous 1920s-style camp with a lovely riverside location. Finally, you’ll stay at Elephant Pepper Camp in the Mara North Conservancy, an authentic little property with oodles of character!

Ole Sereni is superb for stopovers, providing plenty of fine dining, a spa, and a swimming pool. Once you’ve arrived at Lewa, your safari begins in earnest, with activities such as expertly guided game drives and walks. This part of Kenya is home to all Big Five, numerous smaller predators and herbivores, and ample birdlife! Equally impressive wildlife viewing is available from Sand River and Elephant Pepper, also via vehicle and walking safaris. And at all three safari camps, you can opt to pay a little extra for additional activities including hiking, horse- and camel riding, cultural experiences, and hot air balloon safari.

The larger site boasts a plunge pool and a billiards room too.

Game drives into the Maasai Mara are available every day, to see an incredible wealth of wildlife. If you are here from July to October, you might well witness the famous Great Migration, when hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelles thunder through the area in search of good grazing! For travellers hoping to see all this from the air, the camp can organise hot air balloon safaris at an additional charge. Cultural experiences, also at extra cost, are available too.
