7 Day Swift Adventure

Kenya (Lewa – Masai Mara)

Overview

From Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be taken by scheduled flight to the luxurious tented Lewa Safari Camp, an intimate camp in an exceptional location. It is one of only four permanent places to stay in on the Lewa Conservancy and it is the only one that is owned by the conservancy itself. Therefore profits are ploughed back into conservation and the surrounding communities. After that, it’s on to Kenya’s rightly famous Masai Mara. Staying at the exclusive Elephant Pepper Camp, there will be ample opportunities for seeing Kenya’s magnificent wildlife during game drives through the Mara’s open countryside. And if you are lucky, you will get to see the Big Five!

Experiences

One of the top draws for visitors is Kenya’s annual Wildebeest Migration. Nowhere in the world is there a movement of animals as immense as the wildebeest migration, when over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October. However, Kenya is known throughout the world for its huge variety of wildlife and one of the best countries in Africa to see the Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo.

Nairobi National Park is one of the most successful of Kenya’s rhino sanctuaries and as a consequence is one of the few parks, where a visitor can be certain of seeing a black rhino in its natural habitat.

Samburu National Reserve is one of the lesser-known national parks but the reserve is rich in wildlife with an abundance of rare species such as the Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx (also referred to as the Samburu Special Five). The reserve is also home elephants, lion, leopard and cheetah. Wild dog sightings are

For elephant lovers, the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, located near Nairobi National Park, is a must-visit. This orphanage for elephant calves and rhinos from all over Kenya was founded and is still managed by Daphne Sheldrick, the widow of one of Kenya’s best-known Game Wardens David Sheldrick. David Sheldrick was at the centre of the 1970’s ivory poaching wars in Tsavo National Park and today, the Sheldrick Orphanage is a focal point for elephant conservation.
