Itinerary

Day 1:Giraffe Manor

Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by a member of the team who will transfer you to Giraffe Manor. It is approximately a thirty minute drive from the airport and takes you along the edge of Nairobi National park.

Giraffe Manor is quite unlike anywhere else in the world. This luxury boutique hotel is located within a small wildlife sanctuary in a leafy suburb of Nairobi and is home to a herd of Rothschild’s giraffes who roam freely around the grounds, (alongside several warthog families!) Guests can experience getting up close and personal with giraffe like nowhere else in the world* – don’t be alarmed if they make an appearance at your breakfast table by popping their heads through the window. The Giraffe Centre next door to the manor is great for learning all about the conservation of the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe in Kenya. There are lots of places nearby to indulge your shopping desires and purchase unique gifts from talented local artisans and designers.

*The giraffe at Giraffe Manor are wild and we cannot guarantee interaction with them at any given time.

Days 2, 3 & 4:Siruai Expedition Camp

Siruai Expedition Camp offers a traditional Africa safari camp and wild safari experience, enabling you to feel immersed in nature without compromising on comfort.

The camp boasts spectacular views over the vast Laikipia plains and Mount Kenya, and great game viewing opportunities, including a chance to track the elusive and endangered African wild dog. When not out viewing elephants, lions, Grevy’s zebra and other game, take a walk to explore the rocky ridge lines and winding river valleys in the area. Kayaking down the Ewaso Narok River and breakfasting beside hippo pools are some of the unforgettable memories you will make during your stay at Siruai. The freedom to walk, kayak and simply explore nature at your own pace is what really makes Siruai Expedition Camp such a special Africa safari camp. With no permanent structures, no internet and no other visitors in the area, you will find it to be a liberating retreat into the wilderness.

Guests can enjoy morning and afternoon game drives, with great opportunities to spot prides of lion, leopard, and buffalo, to name but a few. Solio is a haven of luxury and tranquillity, with homegrown goodness from the lodge’s own organic herb and veggie garden on offer every mealtime, spa treatments and massages available in your room and a serene garden from which to sit back and enjoy the bird life and views of Mount Kenya.

The giant wooden veranda jutting out over the lake is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the abundant birdlife and magnificent views over the lake to Mount Longonot.
