Safari Overview

As featured in the Financial Times How to Spend It Magazine, this conservancy-focused safari in the Greater Mara includes three nights at the luxurious Richard’s River Camp set near a permanent water source that acts as a magnet for wildlife and five nights mobile with world famous Masai guide, Jackson Looseyia. Jackson has been recognised as one of the top ten guides of the world. He has presented numerous wildlife documentaries including Big Cat Diary and also pioneers responsible tourism in the Mara.

This trip is well suited to families with older children or groups of friends travelling together - you’ll have Jackson and the mobile camp all to yourself. The camp moves location depending on animal migration patterns, ensuring you’re in the right place at the right time for the best animal viewings. You’ll be remote giving you a true African wilderness experience but still able to enjoy modern facilities as the mobile camp does not overlook the element of luxury. Wildlife highlights include guided walks in search for endangered species such as the Colobus monkey and cheetahs.

Day by day

Upon arrival into Nairobi International Airport, you will be met by your private professional driver/guide and private 4x4 vehicle and transferred to Wilson Airport to catch your scheduled flight to the Ol Kiombo airstrip in the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Days 2-3

Olare Orok Conservancy

Your days are spent experiencing the magic of the Olare Orok Conservancy with your professional driver/guide and 4x4 vehicle. A variety of game can be seen in this region with some huge herds of wildebeest and zebra passing through in migration season; this results in stable numbers of predators throughout the year so you should be in for some good game viewing. Huge hippos and large crocodiles can be found lazing around in the waters of the Mara River if you venture south. Here, you can explore the wilderness and the rolling hills on your own terms, in the company of your personal Masai guide. Cultural visits to the nearby Masai communities just outside the Conservancy as well as bush breakfasts, bush picnics and sundowners with a view can also be arranged as well as hot air balloon safaris (needs to be pre-booked in advance at an additional cost).
