June 20-30, 2020
Join Karen and Rimmi on a Wellness in Wilderness Retreat!
Discover the splendor of Africa on a luxurious Kenyan safari where wildlife roams freely, including rare and endangered species. Great land masses, shimmering lakes, elephants, lions, leopards, rhinoceros, hippos, giraffes, flamingos - are all here
Get ready to explore Kenya’s 5 outstanding game reserves in private 4x4 safari vehicles for an unforgettable road-trip. The tour begins and ends in Nairobi, and takes us through Samburu, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and Masai Mara.
The tour covers a lot of ground, yet is designed to move at a comfortable and relaxed pace. There will be plenty of time for game viewing and relaxing. Stay in some of the world's most luxurious and intimate safari lodges and tents.
Our daily wellness offerings (yoga, Pilates, meditation) will work around that day’s safari itinerary.
NATURE + CULTURE + WELLNESS
This Reserve is bordered to the south by the Ewaso Nyiro River, and is characterized by exceptional game viewing like the Grevy’s zebra with huge fury ears, gerenuk antelope standing on hind legs to feed, Somali ostriches with distinct blue legs, Reticulated giraffe, shy Oryx and predators like lion, leopard and cheetah.
Elephant and crocodile sightings are common; excellent bird watching with numerous varieties of weaverbirds and the martial eagle.
Our luxury accommodations are set in the spectacular backdrop of the Mighty Ol Olokwe Mountain fronting the Ewaso Nyiro River within the Buffalo Springs Reserve.
LAKES NAKURU & NAIVASHA
Nakuru is Swahili for “place of the waterbuck,” and here you will see waterbuck aplenty, along with hippos, giraffe, zebra, impala, ostrich, gazelle, abundant bird species, a rhino sanctuary and more. Our trip in the Great Rift Valley Escarpment brings you to stunning scenery.
Lake Naivasha region includes Hell’s Gate National Park, geysers, our boat safari, bike safari, walking safari and more. Our lodges in these two lake areas include meandering grounds where zebra frolic, monkeys engage in monkey business, and hippos manicure the lawns at night.
THE KINGDOM OF LIONS
Masai Mara, known for it’s concentration of wildlife, is particularly famous for its populations of big cats, with high concentrations of lions, leopards and cheetahs. Get ready to hear natures roar!
Typically, our days will include morning and afternoon game drives.
Afternoons will provide time for swimming, reading, socializing and lounging in our private balconies. Some evenings we will embrace the Kenyan tradition of toasting the sunset in an outdoor Sundowner.
LUXURY LODGES & TENTS
We have reserved luxury safari lodges in the heart of nature so that we can see and hear our animal friends in their natural surroundings!
In Samburu our luxury tents are along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River under a thick stand of doum Palms. The tents are permanent structures enrobed in canvas and equipped with dressing rooms, sitting rooms and a terrace with views of the river.
In Naivasha our luxury cottages are situated on the southern shores of Lake Naivasha - the only freshwater Lake within Africa's Great Rift Valley.
In Nakuru, our luxury bungalows are on rolling hills of Africa's Great Rift Valley and offer spectacular views for bird watchers and wildlife lovers alike.
Our Masai Mara luxury club tents offer breathtaking views of the vast Mara Plains. They are spacious and decorated in earth tones with large beds, chairs, wardrobes and a desk. The tents have glass panel doors and a deck outside for game viewing from your daybed.
Our resorts feature swimming pools, meandering walking paths and al-fresco dining options. Community living and sharing is part of Kenyan culture, and inspired by this, most of the meals at lodges and game camps are buffet-style.
