Day by day Itinerary of

Kenya's Unique Lodges

Day 1

Nairobi – Chyulu Hills

Transfer from the hotel to Wilson Airport for the scheduled flight to Tsavo West National Park. Upon arrival, you will be met by a guide for a game drive en-route to the lodge. Following lunch, there is an afternoon game drive.


Ol Donyo Lodge sits proudly in the foothills of the Chyulu Range. The Chyulu Hills are the youngest range of volcanic hills in Africa, the last volcanic activity having only happened about 600 years ago. They are situated halfway between Tsavo and Amboseli National Parks on a concession of 121,000 hectares of communally owned Maasai land. Habitats range from grasslands of the savannah to green river woodlands and cool mountain forests. Ol Donyo is located within a community "ranch" owned by 4000 Maasai. All of the lodge's lease and conservancy fees are paid directly to the Maasai communal landowners to support the local community's efforts to actively protect the land. All cottages have en-suite bathrooms, electric lighting, and a veranda with panoramic views of the plains and Mount Kilimanjaro. (L)(D)

Mara Plains Camp is one of the smallest and most personal camps in the Masai Mara and hides in the thick forest on a bend in the Ntiakitiak River. Guests can enjoy game drives in both the Masai Mara National Reserve or in the privacy of the neighboring Olare Orok Conservancy away from the crowds.

The Conservancy is a fabulous wildlife reserve of nearly eight thousand hectares, rich in wildlife including predators and big cats in particular. The camp has been designed and built to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Mara Plains Camp is involved in numerous ongoing projects to preserve the region's wildlife and ecosystems. One example is National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative (BCI), a comprehensive program established by the Jouberts to raise awareness about falling populations of lions, cheetahs, and other large felines and to support efforts to reverse their decline.
