Disabled Hotels
Day 1
You will be met at Nairobi Airport and transferred to your hotel in this bustling city.
 
Check in and relax in your warm and friendly African surroundings.
Day 2
This morning we visit the Giraffe Centre. Founded by Betty & Jock Leslie-Melville to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe from extinction, this centre plays an important role in educating Kenyan school children on the country's wildlife and environment. It also allows visitors to come into close contact with the world's tallest species, including the opportunity to feed a gorgeous giraffe.
 
After returning to your hotel for lunch (own account), in the late afternoon we visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, which is open from 5 to 6 pm for foster-parent adoption visits (as it is less busy than the morning visiting time). It took Daphne Sheldrick 28 years of trial and error to perfect the milk formula and complex husbandry required to rear orphaned African elephants, during the period that her husband was warden of Kenya's largest elephant sanctuary in Tsavo East National Park. Since then this sanctuary has gone on to save the lives of many orphaned elephant calves.
 
Note: To arrange an afternoon fostering visit, each person must foster an orphaned elephant and book this visit online (we cannot do this for you). You must bring your adoption certificates with you.
Day 3
Transfer to Wilson Airport for your light aircraft flight to Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake in the heart of the spectacular Great Rift Valley.
 
On arrival enjoy a 1-hour boat ride on the lake, with the opportunity to see hippo and some of the 400 different bird species. Then relax in your spectacular surroundings.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods. A baggage allowance of 15 kg (which includes your hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons. Excess baggage can be stored with our representative in Nairobi. If you cannot manage the light aircraft steps, you will need to be lifted on and off the plane.
Day 4
Today we drive 1.5-hours on a shared excursion to explore the wildlife of Lake Nakuru National Park.
 
A soda lake on the floor of the Rift Valley, at certain times of the year Lake Nakuru is home to over 400 different bird species. The lake is also a haven for certain endangered species including the Rothschild giraffe and black and white rhino.
 
In addition to its significant population of rhino and giraffe that are attracted to its salt waters, Lake Nakuru offers sanctuary to a wide variety of other wildlife - including herds of buffalo, lions, zebra, giraffe, monkeys, baboons, Thomson’s gazelle, Grant's gazelle, impala, eland, ostrich and more.
 
Many resident and migrant birds wade in its shallow salt waters - including Lesser and Greater flamingos, Great white pelicans, Marabou storks, Grey-headed gulls, Garganey and Northern shovelers and a variety of egrets, plovers and terns. In the surrounding trees you can hope to see a Chin-spot batis, Green-backed camaroptera, Yellow-breasted apalis, Northern puffback, Buff-bellied warbler and many others. Occasionally birds of prey can also be seen.
 
Note: You will need some upper body strength for this safari, as you will be required to transfer into the front seat of the game viewing vehicle.
Day 5
Today transfer to Naivasha airstrip for your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Masai people and the Mara River that divides the park.
 
Masai Mara National Park is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest from the adjoining Serengeti National Park. This phenomenon occurs every year from July to October (although exact timings cannot be guaranteed), when game migrates along a circular route from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again in search of fresh pastures, followed by hungry predators - most notably lions and hyena.
 
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy a late afternoon game drive in this magnificent wildlife sanctuary.

As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods.

Days 6 To 7
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara National Park.
 
Set off early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view the abundant wildlife of this region. Return to the lodge to rest in the heat of the day, before setting off again in the late afternoon for another game drive.
 
Nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley, the Masai Mara is famous for its many prides of lions, packs of hyena and other predators - as well as huge herds of wildebeest, which number over one million, zebra and giraffe. All the Big Five can be seen here, as well as numerous other species including the Thomson's gazelle, topi, kongoni, impala, roan antelope and hippo. The nocturnal bat-eared fox, rarely found elsewhere in Kenya, also inhabits this park as well as the endangered cheetah and black rhino.
 
Bird watching is also excellent with over 450 different species. These include the Marabou stork, Secretary bird, Crowned crane, Ostrich, Brown snake eagle, Black-chested snake eagle, Bateleur, Martial eagle, African paradise flycatcher, Red-fronted & White-headed barbet, Black-faced go-away bird, Woodland kingfisher, Violet-backed starling, Black cuckoo-shrike and various species of larks, cisticolas, vultures, hornbills and so much more.
 
Note: You need some upper body strength for this safari, as you will need to be lifted into the front seat of the game viewing vehicle Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives. Other safari alternatives are available, using an accessible vehicle, if you do not have upper body strength or if you are travelling with young children.
Day 8
Enjoy some final game viewing in the Masai Mara this morning, before your transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Wilson Airport.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to a local restaurant for an included lunch - with your choice of:
(a) Carnivore - known for its barbeque and steaks;
(b) Haanda - which specialises in northern Indian cuisine; or
(c.) Nyama Mama - a modern fun African roadside dinner that creates Chapatti wraps, stews & other locally inspired food.
 
Afterwards you will be transferred to Nairobi Airport for your flight home.
 
Note: If you cannot manage the light aircraft steps, you will need to be lifted on and off the plane.
