Maximise the time that you spend exploring Kenya’s game parks on our Wings Over Kenya safari, flying into the Samburu and Masai Mara.

Maximise the time that you spend exploring Kenya’s beautiful game parks on our Wings Over Kenya safari, flying into wilderness areas to experience the authentic safaris of old. The following is a sample itinerary which combines Kenya’s two most popular parks – the arid Samburu and the iconic Masai Mara. However this tour can be tailored to visit more than just these two parks and for any duration using a combination of air and/or road transport. You can also choose from a range of excellent lodges and camps, all which operate their own game activities.

For a more exclusive experience, we can arrange private game drives in your own vehicle with one of Origin’s own professional guides. Transport on safari is by custom-built 4WD vehicle, specially designed for gameviewing and photography.

Wings over Kenya

Sample Itinerary

6 days/5 nights

Day 1

Nairobi
Arrival transfer to your hotel.

Days 2/3

Samburu
Transfer to Wilson Airport for your flight to Samburu. Stay at a camp of your choice (see p108) and go on game drives in search of Kenya’s iconic big game, as well as endemic dry-adapted species such as Grevy’s zebra, Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe and gerenuk. As the animals tend to converge at the Uaso Nyiro River that cuts through the reserve, gameviewing here is consistently good.

Days 4/5

Masai Mara
Transfer by air to the Masai Mara, one of the world’s finest wildlife sanctuaries. Choose from the camps featured on p105 or any of the camps on pages 113-117. The Mara supports the largest diversity of species in Africa and hosts the famous wildebeest migration between Jul-Sep. We strongly recommend 2 nights or more in the Masai Mara.

Day 6

Return to Nairobi
Morning game drive before your flight back to Nairobi. Transfer to city hotel or airport on arrival, enjoying lunch on the way. Tour ends.

Kenya Overview

What are the best things to do in Kenya?
Kenya has so many exciting and wonderful experiences to enjoy that the options are endless. Top experiences include:

  • Witnessing the great wildebeest migration (September to October) in the Masai Mara.
  • Exploring Samburu Game Reserve with its big game as well as rare endemic species.
  • Breakfast with the Rothschild’s giraffes at Giraffe Manor.
  • Thousands of flamingos and pelicans on the Rift Valley lakes .
  • Getting close to rhino in Laikipia.
  • Meeting the Samburu or Maasai and learning about their culture.

What is the climate like in Kenya?
The highland areas have a temperate climate (22°- 25°C) due to the high altitude, however  it is hotter in low-lying areas like the Rift Valley (30°- 35°C). The coast is hot and humid most of the year. Kenya has two rainy seasons, the ‘short rains’ that take place over 5-6 weeks in November and December and the ‘long rains’ that occur during March to May.

How do I get to Kenya?
Kenya’s major capital Nairobi is the main entry point into the country. Major airlines that fly into Nairobi include British Airways, Etihad Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa and Air France. From Nairobi, Kenya Airways offers flights to other popular African destinations including South Africa, Uganda, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.

What can I combine Kenya with?
Kenya is often combined with neighbouring Tanzania, and with Uganda or Rwanda for a trek to see the gorillas. A few days on the beautiful beaches of the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar is a very popular way to end a Kenyan safari.
