Customisable trip itinerary

This tour idea is fully customisable

The itinerary has been created by our local agency with one idea in mind: to inspire you. Every element can be adapted to your needs and interests, from duration to accommodation and activities.

Day 1: Fairmont The Norfolk, Nairobi

Welcome to Nairobi!Upon arrival you will be warmly met and transferred to your city hotel.  Your program for the first day will depend on your arrival time and whether you prefer to rest or start RIGHT AWAY to discover Nairobi. Details to discuss at time of booking.

Day Itinerary

Our guide will pick you up at your hotel after breakfast. And we will walk or use uber as way of. We will start by exploring the Nairobi Central/CBD area. Enjoy a walk on the vibrant streets of the city centre to get an insight of Nairobi lifestyle – Stop, discover, taste, shop while walking at free leisure.  You will see it all: businesspeople, cool Matatus, urban Masais, fruits, art, you name it! And in between we will stop for a delicious Kenyan coffee or even better, a Samosa (we know where to find the best ones). Our guide will offer you several options to visit during the tour, ranging from the traditional to the alternative, such as:

- A visit to Kuona Artists Collective: An artist community located in the green leafy suburbs of Nairobi where artistic ambiance is in abundance. This is a great place to meet some of the most talented artists of the country! You'll find art in every corner, from the artists' different booths to the last corner of the garden. Cocktails on Friday afternoons - pass by if you're close. 

- Nairobi Railway Museum: A cool interesting place to visit, the museum is tucked away amid the modern skyscrapers of the central business district. Wandering on and around the locomotives makes for a lovely outing and gives you a surprising amount of insight into the nation’s development. The museum itself is almost a time capsule within a time capsule—a well preserved effort from the post-independence days of the 1970s to conserve an emblematic part of its colonial past. 

- Wasp & Sprout: before going back to the hotel stop here for an easy bite or mingle with local creatives and expats while enjoying a cocktail or Tusker baridi. Share your day impressions with your guide and ask any questions that come to mind about Naitobi, its ways and people. Stop by the gift shop, filled with unique local specialties, gifts and unique pieces created by local artists.

After this stop, head back to your hotel – evening at free leisure.

If you would like to go out of the hotel we could recommend visiting:

- Mercury Lounge: trendy. Good cocktails. Excellent music. Easy bites

- Too Early for Birds: a show with a crew that brings history alive in breathtaking ways, exploring everything from newspaper headlines to Kenyan idioms,” says Wachuka.  

Included : Breakfast.

Night at Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel (Nairobi)

Days 2 to 4: Mara Bushtops Camp, Masai Mara

At sun set enjoy a conversation with the Masai men and women around the camp fire set with lights.  You will get to know everything about the untainted Masai culture and how it has withstood the test of changing times. This will be an encounter where you will share a drink and impressions with the Masai, both parties amicably seated by the fire.  From this conversation you can ask any question to learn more about the Masai traditions.  Move over to the restaurant for dinner then retire to bed after a very rewarding day.

The following two days you have an early morning game drive. Mid morning to relax and enjoy camp facilities or visit Masai Manyatta to experience the culture.  This is a day where you can choose to get a bird's eye view of the reserve by going an early morning balloon safari.
