9 Days Kenya Fly-in Safari Laikipia Masai Mara

9 Days Kenya Fly-in Safari to Laikipia & Masai Mara: This is a fantastic luxury air safari that includes stays in two of Kenya’s top wildlife regions, Borana Conservancy and the Maasai Mara Olderikesi Wildlife Conservancy. Two luxurious camps (Lengishu Home & Cottar’s Bush Villa) provide quieter game-viewing within Laikipia and the Mara ecosystem.

Situated on private conservancies, Lengishu luxury home and Cottar’s Bush Villa offer the chance to sight all of the ‘big 5’ and enjoy a range of safari activities. Suited to those hoping to enjoy a greater degree of exclusivity, both camps are located within private conservancies and so offer a quieter safari experience, away from the crowds.

Our 8 nights Kenya Fly-in private Reserves & Conservancies Safari begins with a flight from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport to Laikipia’s Borana Conservancy, at Lengishu luxury home sitting atop a ridge with stunning views across the Laikipia plains and deep into the Northern Frontier.

Throughout the conservancy guests will find a protected population of both black and white rhino, as well as good numbers of the beautiful Grevy’s zebra.

For those hoping to sight the ‘Big 5’, the following stay at Cottar’s Bush Villa will likely lead to good cat sightings and, depending on the time of year, guests might opt to spend a day in the Mara National Reserve with the aim of catching the great migration.

The conservancies also boast a greater range of activities, where guests might stretch their legs with bush walks, keep watch for nocturnal predators during night drives or add further variety still with horse riding, visits to local villages and forests, mountain biking and behind-the-scenes conservation activities.

By staying at either camps, guests also contribute directly to the conservation of the surrounding area, helping both the wildlife and local communities to prosper.
