Overview

OVERVIEW

Visit Nairobi’s famed Giraffe Centre and Kazuri Beads Factory.

Spend the next 7 nights in pure Masai Mara bliss. These 7 nights are for yours for the taking – to do exactly as you please. This could be going for unlimited game drives, or simply watching the world go by from the comfort of your surroundings at your tent’s deck.

Find your pace. There’s no urgency.

You have exclusive use of your own 4WD vehicle with private guide and spotter.

Spend the first 3 nights at Ngare Serian. Located in Mara North Conservancy, this is a small, romantic, intimate, chic & elegant type of setup with just 4 accommodation tents.

Spend a romantic night at The Nest – built 12 feet up a Warburgia tree, and overlooking the Mara River.

For the last 3 nights, you will stay in the Masai Mara Reserve at Serian Nkorombo – a traditional tented camp with also just 4 tents, strategically located adjacent to a prolific salt lick, attracting black rhino, lion, leopard and old bull buffalo. Around the river bend is one of the annual wildebeest migration’s crossing points.
