DAY 1: Nairobi to Ol Kinyei Conservancy, Greater Masai Mara
We embark on this incredible Masai Mara Fly-in Safari adventure from the Wilson Airport in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. We take the ride on a scheduled flight at 10:00 AM, flying to the Ol Seki Airstrip near Masai Mara National Reserve.
Arriving at about 11:00 AM, you are greeted and received by the camp’s driver and transferred to the nicely tented camp inside the exclusive Ol Kinyei Conservancy.
Entering Ol Kinyei Conservancy, we make the most of our first wildlife viewing on the way to camp. The private conservancy is known for its high focus and an assorted variety of natural life, so anticipate some radiant sightings. Settle in at camp and tuck into a fresh lunch, before leaving on a glorious sunset diversion drive, late this afternoon.
Tour the private Ol Kinyei Conservancy with expert aides in 4×4 safari vehicles; you are excitingly plunged in the African hedge from the beginning – encountering the sights, sounds and scents firsthand. En route, we stop for sundowners in the untamed wilds, taking in the view as the sky wakes up with gleaming hues. After nightfall, we advance back to camp as the day quickly blurs into the night and the nighttime creatures start to stir.
Back at the peaceful tented camp, we have a sumptuous dinner and spend the rest of the evening relaxing in the authentic bush surroundings.

DAY 2: Ol Kinyei & Naboisho Conservancies, Greater Masai Mara
Awakening in the heart of the uncorrupted African bush, toward the beginning of today we get ready for an entire day of wildlife seen in the private conservancy zones neighbouring Masai Mara National Reserve.
The Ol Kinyei and Naboisho conservancies offer a more unique safari experience than the national park, which is available to the general population. We are probably not going to encounter other safari vehicles out in the bush – a genuine treat in the Mara ecosystem, as it is an immensely well-known safari destination.
Both of these private conservancies of more magnificent Masai Mara are home to copious untamed life, including four of Africa’s Big Five – lions, elephants, bison and panthers. The Great Wildebeest Migration and a second Wildebeest Migration, go through the conservancies at specific occasions of the year. The Mara locale is likewise prestigious for its huge felines, facilitating solid populaces of cheetahs, panthers and lions, alongside African wild felines, servals and caracals. Naboisho is home to especially substantial lion prides, aiding one of the highest densities of lions on the planet. Keep your eyes open for wildlife such as giraffes, wildebeest, zebras and an assortment of Antelope species, just as uncommon wild canines, jackals and bat-eared foxes. The accomplished Masai guides leading your wildlife drives are proficient at finding the wild creatures of Mara and can fully inform you about the unusual species of animals and plants they have experienced.
