This is our quintessential relaxed safari holiday.
Begin your Kenyan safari through the Great Rift Valley, an area of great geographical significance and which stretches across a vast area of the African continent. Along its lengths are a number of volcanoes, most now dormant.
Spend your first three nights at a unique luxury farmhouse, situated on a ranch in the north-western part of the Lake Naivasha region. Loldia House is the ideal spot to relax before a big safari, where you really can taste the pleasures of Kenyan country life and explore the Great Rift Valley.
You will then head into one of the most prolific areas of the Masai Mara on a scheduled flight. This famous reserve is known for its excellent year-round game viewing, and of course is the stage for the annual Wildebeest Migration. Spend the next four nights at Governor’s Camp, the first permanent tented camp in the Masai Mara, remaining in its original site since 1972; a true historical safari experience!
This trip is ideally suited to those looking for a truly relaxed and authentic experience of Kenya’s wide-open spaces, landscapes, and wildlife.
