7 Days Kenya Safari Meru Samburu Mount Kenya Sweetwaters Holiday begins with a scenic drive to Meru National Park.

The Park was made famous by the book Born Free, detailing author Joy Adamson’s hand-rearing of orphaned lioness Elsa in the Park.

Our next destination is Samburu which offers a permanent water supply that’s like a magnet for numerous animal species, which include the big cats, herbivores, and reptiles such as crocodiles.

Samburu is one of the few parks where leopard spottings are frequent. Samburu also offers superb bird-watching with numerous weaver birds, the martial eagle, and the Blue legged Somali Ostrich.

Our destination today is the cool, crisp Kenyan highlands and the historic Mount Kenya Safari Club, set in over 100 acres of landscaped gardens.

This exclusive resort offers an experience of refined elegance and luxury, as well as a sense of old Hollywood in its glamorous past.

All of the amenities you would expect from a fine international establishment are here, including horseback riding, golf, croquet, a putting green, a bowling green, table tennis, swimming, a beauty salon, an animal orphanage, tennis, trout streams, and more.

Fine dining, warm hospitality, and superb accommodations of suites or cottages are hallmarks of our stay.

Our grand finale is the Sweetwaters Game reserve. Both Sweetwater’s land, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, and its sumptuous ranch were once the private domain of famed multi-millionaire, Adnan Kashoggi.

We visit the Chimpanzee Sanctuary, a charming haven established by the Jane Goodall Institute to provide sanctuary to orphaned chimps, and the specially protected and fenced refuge of black rhino with its stunning forty specimens!

In fact salt lick so we’ll be guaranteed unprecedented close encounters. Whether it’s day or night game drives, camel trekking, lion tracking, al fresco dining, or relaxing by the pool, Sweetwaters is bound to delight.

Sweetwaters boasts excellent game viewing with the highest ratio of game to area of any park or reserve in Kenya.
