2 nights at Ol Donyo Lodge in a standard pool suite on a fully inclusive basis.
Ol Donyo Lodge is a Relais & Châteaux member property with seven suites on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills overlooking Mount Kilimanjaro. Three nights hardly does justice to the plethora of activities on offer in this Maasai land. Choose between day and night game drives, walking, village visits, horse riding, mountain biking, sleeping under the stars on your roof-top bed, watching big tusker elephants drink from the waterholes below the lodge, or just relaxing in your pool suite.
Set on the Mbirikani Group Ranch – 111.000 hectares of immaculate, private wild Africa bordering the foothills of the Chyulu Hills National Park– ol Donyo Lodge blends contemporary design with the rich culture and history of the people of this area, the indomitable Maasai. This area is rich in wildlife, where some of Africa’s last giant elephant bulls roam freely, where the haunting calls of leopards interrupt the night and where lions are being pulled back from the brink of annihilation.
The lodge sits in thick woodland on a gently sloping hillside with views from the plains to a distant Kilimanjaro. Designed to merge your outdoor and indoor living, a series of unique suites and villas (no two are the same) appears to emerge from the arid landscape on either side of a palatial lounge and dining area.
Six pool suites plus 1 two-bedroom family unit offer a harmonious blend of contemporary and rustic accommodation, merging the landscape into each suite. All rooms have their own plunge pool and enjoy roof terraces where intimate “star beds” can be set up, allowing guests the thrill of sleeping in style under a canopy of endless stars while connecting with their sense of place and self.

2 nights at Segera Retreat in a villa on a fully inclusive basis.
Nestled between glorious Mount Kenya to the east and the Great Rift Valley to the west, a stunningly diverse and seemingly magical environment, the 9,500km2 Laikipia region enjoys woodland, grasslands and fertile riverbeds where water flowing from the Aberdare Mountains long ago gave rise to the Mutara River to the north, and the Ewaso Nyiro, Suguroi and Segera Rivers to the south.
A cascading waterfall flows from the Segera River and the natural Valley of Kiseregai Creek.
Delmare Springs attract herds of elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, and significant populations of Reticulated giraffe, Lewel’s hartebeest and endangered species such as Gravy’s zebra, patas monkey and one of the few expanding populations of Africa Wild Dog.
One of Kenya’s most exciting safari locations, conservationist Jochen Zeitz has created an exclusive destination for fun, adventure, spiritual reflection and peace, where absolute luxury, bespoke service and generous all-inclusive offerings combine to give you exceptional privacy in your wild Kenyan home away from home.
Segera is a long-run destination and a treasured haven for Kenya’s most celebrated wildlife species. A holistic approach to wellness ensures a revitalising and authentic safari experience from the moment you arrive.

2 nights at Mara Plains Camp in a luxury suite on a fully inclusive basis.
The Maasai Mara is one of Africa’s most famous wildlife parks. The image of acacia trees on endless wildlife-filled grass plains epitomises Africa for many; add Maasai warriors, and the conversation need go no further. The more excellent Maasai Mara Reserve offers unparalleled game viewing opportunities; considerable pride of lions, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles and eland, to mention a few.
This Relais & Châteaux property is a one-of-a-kind, seven-tented camps located in the private 35,000- acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy, just on the northern boundary of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This intimate camp blends the finest wildlife viewing with outstanding hospitality and guidance.
No other camp offers the extensive traversing area of Mara Plains Camp, with access to 100,000 acres of private conservancy land and the world-renowned Maasai Mara, home to the Great Migration. Each of the seven suites has deep canvas canopied ceilings, rough-hewn wood floors and accents of East Africa’s rich safari history. The well-appointed en-suite facilities (including a deep copper bath) plus the extensive private veranda complete what is genuinely a stunning concept. Each guest suite has a set of professional cameras and lenses available for guests to use on a complimentary basis. Add a pair of high-quality binoculars, and it is impossible not to see and capture the region’s incredible wildlife scenes.
The Olare Motorogi Conservancy is reputed to have the lowest vehicle density in the Maasai Mara region while also having the highest concentration of big cats anywhere in Africa. There is only one guest bed per 350 acres, leaving the land unadulterated for the wildlife to roam and thrive as nature intended. By day and night, the camp is a sanctuary for resident animals, including many of the Maasai Mara’s 300 bird species. After dark, larger mammals frequent the camp, and Maasai warriors escort guests to and from their rooms. Hippos snorting and leopards barking often provide the night’s chorus.
Mara Plains also offers walking safaris and day & night game drives. Hot air ballooning is available, should be booked in advance, and is subject to availability and additional cost. Departures are very early in the morning to allow time to transfer to the nearest launching point. Night drives are particularly prolific in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, and while they take patience, sightings commonly include lesser-known nocturnal mammals and even lion and hyena hunts.
Large predators, including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas, are drawn to the area by the abundance of prey that migrates throughout the park. Many smaller animals, such as rock hyrax, bat-eared foxes, mongoose, honey badger, jackals, monkeys, baboons, and African hares, also inhabit the area, along with nearly 500 species of birds.
