Classic Kenyan Honeymoon Safari
ITINERARY:

Day 1 - Nairobi:
Clients are met on arrival by an Origins driver and transferred to the Karen Blixen cottages. The cottages and Coffee Gardens are located in the suburb of Karen, originally settled by author Isac Dineson, better known, as Karen Blixen made famous by the film Out of Africa, part of which was filmed here in her homestead, now the Karen Blixen Museum. Indoor and outdoor and garden restaurants, a lively bar and live music most evening make this a favourite haunt of local residents. Overnight Karen Blixen Cottages

Days 2, 3 - Samburu:
We catch a scheduled flight departing at 0915hrs from Wilson Airport to Samburu National Reserve, arriving at 1030hrs. Guests are met and transferred to camp with a game drive en-route. Samburu presents a visual feast as proud Samburu herdsman coexist with the wildlife; many rare & endemic species thrive here including Grevy's Zebra, Somali Ostrich, Besia Oryx, Gerenuk, Yellow Baboon, Guenther's DikDik and Reticulated Giraffe; Leopard and Elephant are plentiful. 2 nights Samburu Intrepids Camp

Days 4, 5 - Lake Nakuru:
After our last morning in Samburu we leave at mid-day to fly to Lake Naivasha, via Nairobi. From Naivasha we are met and transferred by road to Lake Nakuru Park, arriving around 5pm. Our base inside this lakeside reserve is Lion Hill Lodge. This is the ideal base to explore Lake Nakuru National Park and Rhino Sanctuary (black & white Rhino); also home to Rothschild's Giraffe (rarely seen elsewhere), Zebra, Buffalo, Eland, Waterbuck as well as Lion and Leopard. 2 nights Lion Hill Lodge

Days 6, 7, 8 - Maasai Mara:
After an early lunch we leave Nakuru to drive across the Rift Valley floor back to Lake Naivasha to connect with our scheduled flight to the Maasai Mara departing at 1510 and arriving at 1550. On arrival guests are met and taken to camp- the transfer is a game drive in itself... Undoubtedly this is the greatest wildlife experience of all. Year round the Maasai Mara Reserve is host to an enormous concentration of animals, boosted by the famous wildebeest and zebra migration during July/August/October. All the Big Cats, Elephant, Black Rhino and thousands of plains game spread out before you- it's better than the Discovery Channel because you are part of the spectacle. 3 nights Mara Intrepids Camp
