The Sheldrick Trust is a pioneering conservation organisation, dedicated to the protection of wildlife and the preservation of habitats in East Africa.

Karen Blixen Museum

Location and Historical Background

Karen Blixen Museum was once the centre piece of a farm at the foot of the Ngong Hills owned by Danish Author Karen and her Swedish Husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke. Located 10km from the city centre, the Museum belongs to a different time period in the history of Kenya. The farm house gained international fame with the release of the movie ‘Out of Africa’ an Oscar winning film based on Karen’s an autobiography by the same title.

3rd Stop

Lunch at Tamambo Restaurant and Bar

4th Stop

The Giraffe Centre

The Giraffe Centre is the creation of the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (A.F.E.W. Kenya), a Kenyan non-profit organisation. Our main purpose is to educate Kenyan school children and youth on their country’s wildlife and environment, as well as give local and international visitors an opportunity to come into close contact with the world’s tallest species, the giraffe.

Day 4

Breakfast boxes will be served to take with you on the ride. Early pick up at 7AM for the drive to Maasai Mara from Nairobi by Land Cruisers. There will be a stop over at the view point to see formation of the Great Rift Valley on the way to the Maasai Mara Safari Camp.

Arrival to the Maasai Mara

You will arrive to the Maasai Mara Safari Camp in time for Lunch. The afternoon will be at your leisure. Your first game viewing drive will be in the evening.

Set in the heart of Africa’s Great Plains, the Masai Mara boasts 1,672 square kilometres of unspoilt wilderness. It is home to the highest concentration of animals and birds anywhere on the continent. Throughout the year the Mara is a place of natural drama, a kaleidoscope of color and life. The famed “Big Five” – Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Buffalo and Leopard – roam the reserve, together with hundreds of others from the fastest animal on earth, the Cheetah, to one of the most secretive, the Bat-eared Fox. After the rains, when the first flush of grass turns the Mara’s golden savannah green, the mesmerizing wildlife spectacle anywhere takes place here: the Great Migration. This is the time when 1.5 million Wildebeest, accompanied by vast numbers of Zebra and Gazelles make the long and dangerous trek from drier lands in Tanzania, northwards to this corner of Kenya. For most of the century the Mara has drawn those searching for adventure and the thrill is still the same today with days spent face to face with nature at its most untouched and enthralling.

After the evening game drive, you will return back to the Game Camp to freshen up for dinner.

Day 5

Full Day at the Masaai Mara Camp

An early rise at 6AM for the morning Game Drive. After the morning game drive, you will return back to the camp for breakfast. You will have the entire afternoon at your leisure.

Maasai Village Visit (Optional)

The afternoon is a great time to go visit a Maasai Village and

In 2019 there are still people in this world that live as they did 100 or even 1000 years ago. Outside the Maasai Mara, one of the largest game parks in Kenya, live one of many villages of the Maasai people. This is their home for now at least, because they are semi-nomadic by tradition, moving their livestock and themselves to new pastures every 3-5 years.

Masaai Mara Sundowner

A sundowner is simply a 'happy hour' during sunset over the African Bush as you round off your Afternoon Adventure on your Masai Mara Safari.

Day 6

After breakfast, you will check out and enjoy game drive en-route to the airstrip for your flight to Nairobi, Kenya.

Upon arrival to Wilson airport in Nairobi, Kenya there will be a Meet and Greet escort who will transfer you to the international airport for a short flight to Zanzibar.

Zanzibar Hotel

Upon arrival to Zanzibar you will be transferred to your hotel where you will be able to spend the rest of the day at leisure after check in. Lunch on your own. We'll meet later in the evening for dinner.

Day 7

Stone Town, Zanzibar Tour

Breakfast at the hotel. Today you will have a Prison Island tour. This is also known as the Changu Island and is situated to the west of Zanzibar Town. 30 minutes by motorboat. The island was formerly used by a slave owner as a private detention place for disobedient slaves. General Mathews bought over this island to construct a jail in 1893 and hence the name -- Prison Island. It was however never used as such but it still stands. You can walk around to see the giant land tortoise, some of which are over 100 years old. It has a beautiful beach where you can swim or snorkel. (Lunch and dinner on your own).
