The ultimate way to ease into East Africa.

Night 1

Hemingways, Nairobi

A stay at Hemingways is the ultimate way to ease into East Africa. On the serene outskirts of Nairobi, this five-star all-suite retreat is well out of the city bustle, but remains perfectly placed as a springboard for your safari adventure. Its chic, plantation-style rooms are bright, light and airy, with private balconies gazing over the lush gardens to the dreamy Ngong Hills – ideal for relaxing after a long flight. Alternatively, unwind in the spa, dip in the pool or sit back with a cuppa made exactly as you like it – your dedicated butler will ensure everything is just so. Meals are a delight: perfectly created fusion cuisine, light bites and hearty breakfasts, served in the classy brasserie or out in the terrace. Those feeling adventurous can explore beyond – get up-close to the residents of the nearby Giraffe Centre or the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage. Or simply settle in with a cocktail at Hemingways Bar.

  • Tranquil retreat, perfectly placed on the edge of the city  
  • Elegant plantation-style rooms with far-reaching views
  • Dedicated butlers, to ensure everything is just as you like it
  • Relaxing gardens, pool and spa
  • Exquisite dining options, including the classy Hemingways Bar 

Imagine waking up in an exquisite tent in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro

Nights 2 & 3

Elewana Tortilis Camp

Imagine waking up in an exquisite tent in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro. Unlike most Amboseli lodges, which are in the middle of the park, Gold Eco-rated, 100% solar powered Elewana Tortilis Camp is set away from the rest, on the pristine southwest border, with the best mountain views and full access to both Amboseli and an exclusive private conservancy, where game walks, bush breakfasts and off-road driving are allowed. The camp has also been key in developing community-owned conservancies, where land outside national parks is secured for wildlife preservation. That’s beneficial for animals and local people, and for wonderful wildlife-watching too – encounters here tend to be higher quality, more frequent, more electrifying. Game drives will likely find enormous herds of elephant as well as hyena, lion and cheetah, while thrilling Maasai-led walking safaris reveal delightful details and a different perspective on the bush.

  • The finest views of Kilimanjaro, away from the crowds
  • Best-of-both location in an exclusive conservancy, on the edge of Amboseli National Park
  • Jaw-dropping wildlife encounters, including huge elephant herds
  • Game walks, bush breakfasts and off-road game drives
  • Luxurious camp with a Gold Eco-rating and community-conservation focus

There are also chances to head out on horseback or camel – an exhilarating way to get unusually close to wild animals.

Nights 4, 5 & 6

Loisaba Tented Camp

Perched on the edge of an escarpment, with unhindered views over the rolling valleys and open plains to Mt Kenya, intimate Loisaba Tented Camp is a design triumph and a hub for cutting-edge conservation. At the heart of a huge conservancy, owned by the Loisaba Community Trust, the camp is a delight: stylish tents with floor-to-ceiling windows, enveloped by this remarkable wilderness. From here, a range of activities is possible. Game drives are breathtaking – this region is one of only a few places in Africa where wildlife numbers are actually on the rise; everything from the Big Five to rare wild dog might be spotted. There are also chances to head out on horseback or camel – an exhilarating way to get unusually close to wild animals; to go for a bush walk or run with a Samburu guide; to take exhilarating mountain-bike rides; or to meet the anti-poaching team to find out how they safeguard this exceptional place. 

 

  • Set on one of Kenya’s most cutting-edge wildlife conservancies
  • Remarkable animal encounters – from the Big Five to rare wild dog
  • Spacious tents set on the edge of an escarpment
  • Diverse activities, from camel treks to bush walks and mountain biking

It has ravishing views stretching to Mt Kenya and a rich abundance of animals

Optional for 1 night whilst in Loisaba 

Elewana Loisaba Star Beds

The ultimate night’s sleep? It’s tough to imagine anywhere more magical to drift off than Elewana Loisaba Star Beds. The Loisaba Conservancy, an exemplar of cutting-edge conservation on the wild Laikipia Plateau, is already a very special safari destination: it has ravishing views stretching to Mt Kenya and a rich abundance of animals – Laikipia is one of only a few places in Africa where wildlife numbers are increasing. It also offers an exciting array of different ways of experiencing the wilderness, from game drives and bush walks to camel rides, mountain-biking, horse trekking and Samburu-guided runs. But Star Beds adds something extra. Sister property to Loisaba Tented Camp, Star Beds comprises just four rooms, each with a four-poster that can be wheeled out onto a panoramic veranda overlooking a rippling valley and a permanent waterhole, to allow sophisticated sleeping under the most glittering canopy of stars.

 

  • Set on one of Kenya’s most cutting-edge wildlife conservancies
  • Magical four-poster beds that can be wheeled out for nights under the stars
  • Remarkable animal encounters – from the Big Five to rare wild dog
  • Diverse activities, from camel treks to bush walks and mountain biking

Big on game, big on glamour.

Nights 7, 8 & 9 

Sand River Masai Mara Camp

The exclusive Sand River Masai Mara Camp, hidden far away from other lodges in the Masai Mara National Reserve, is big on game, big on glamour. Exuding 1920s elegance – the classic era of African adventure – it was named one of the 50 Best Resorts in the World in the 2020 Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards. Its handful of secluded tents are utterly luxuriant, with period furnishings, net-draped four-posters and matchless wilderness locations – animals can be spotted right from the veranda. Indeed, the camp, which overlooks its namesake river, sits right on the route of the annual Great Migration. Large numbers of wildebeest and zebra can be spotted roaming through the camp. And, of course, game drives are extraordinary: nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant than on the surrounding acacia-dotted plains – the Big Five, and a supporting cast of thousands, are regularly seen.

  • Right on the route of the Great Migration
  • Lavish 1920s style camp – movie-star glamour in the bush
  • Exquisite tented suites, where wildlife can be spotted right from the veranda
  • Exclusive location, tucked away from other lodges in the Masai Mara
