Kenyan Milestones

Nairobi – Maasai Mara – Borana Conservancy


Going far beyond the humble safari, this itinerary takes inquisitive families on a tour of Kenya’s caring side, showing off native cultures, sustainable initiatives and the protective side that it’s proud of.

The urban epicentre of Nairobi shows off its caring side with its Giraffe Centre and elephant orphanage, while in the tribes of the Maasai Mara introduce visitors to their traditions and savannah-specific skillsets.

Then a boots-on-the-ground experience in the Borana Conservancy comes in the form of accompanying anti-poaching groups as they check-in with the protected black rhinos.

Where you’ll be going

Get to know where you'll be exploring in Kenya, from the loud delights of the Maasai Mara to the conservation heart of the Northern conservatories.

  • A giraffe stood with its head in a treetop

    A unique beating heart where urban epicentre meets ‘safari capital’, Nairobi encapsulates all the breadth of Kenya’s character in one manageable and excitable boundary. A hubbub for its café culture, restaurants, and bustling night life, there’s soul in the streets and crafts galore. And, because it wouldn’t be Kenya without our very own friends, there’s a national park and plenty of wildlife conservations to explore.

    Stay at: Manzili House
  • Four lion cubs
    Maasai Mara

    Lovingly known as the ‘Mara’ by locals, this world-renowned park brings sheer delight to safari-goers that prefer things loud and proud. Where wildlife instincts run deeper than any watering hole they’re searching for, it’s the place to be for the Great Migration and the year-round spectacle of the Big 5. And, best of all, with the highest density of lions in the world, it’s almost expected to watch the King of the Jungle go strutting by.

    Stay at: Cottar's 1920s Camp
  • Two rhinos eating grass
    Northern Kenya

    Kenya’s best-kept secret, heading north to the eco-conservatories of Borana, Laikipia and Lewa is about so much more than a change in scenery. With conservation being at the heart of what they do, teams go to great lengths to protect highly endangered and lesser-known species. Including rhinos, jackal, oryx, striped polecat, and even the jet-black panther, this is a safari experience that challenges even the most familiar feet with a fresh perspective.

    Stay at: Lengishu
