Or you can have a super early morning start and head off to Lake Nakuru National Park with a packed breakfast.

The park was declared a rhino sanctuary in 1983 and is currently home to both black and white species – they are regularly seen – along with good sightings of leopard. A picnic lunch is served under the Acacia trees overlooking the lake, or you can head back to Loldia for a late lunch. There is also the option to stop at Lake Elementeita on your way back, a soda which is an important breeding site for many threatened bird species and famous for its population of flamingos.

DAY 3: Loldia to Mugie Conservancy: GOVERNORS’ MUGIE HOUSE

Breakfast at Loldia, before heading to the airstrip where you will catch a flight with Governors’ Aviation to Mugie Conservancy, landing in the heart of Kenya’s Laikipia highlands. There is a short car transfer of about 20 minutes over to Governors’ Mugie House, where a delicious lunch will be waiting. Depending on what you feel like doing, you can either head out on your first afternoon game drive and explore this pristine wilderness, abundant with wildlife, lay by the pool or enjoy a siesta. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks around a fire, dinner and overnight at Mugie.

DAYS 4-5: Mugie Conservancy Laikipia: GOVERNORS’ MUGIE HOUSE

Mugie Conservancy offers a myriad of activities by which to enjoy the natural landscape and abundant wildlife, from traditional game drives to bush walks, bush meals and fishing on the Mugie Dam.

The Conservancy also operates as a low impact cattle ranch and catalyst for community conservation initiatives. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the conservation activities, including the Anti-Poaching Unit with the team of bloodhound sniffer dogs. Predator research being carried out has seen lion and
cheetah collared for movement monitoring. Head out with the research team to track down the Big Cats and understand the work being done to prevent human-wildlife conflict. If you’re lucky, you might get to meet Tala, the friendly resident Reticulated Giraffe who wanders freely about the conservancy. End each day with a spectacular sundowner from one of many vantage points around the conservancy.


Breakfast at Mugie before catching a flight south to Kenya’s World famous Masai Mara Reserve. It’s a short game drive en route to the camp, and on arrival you can settle into your tent, have lunch and relax. Embark on a thrilling afternoon game drive at around 3:30pm and return in the dusk for drinks and chatter around the campfire, before your dinner. Fall asleep to the night-time chorus of the Masai Mara!

Arise early each morning to make the most of your spectacular location. Each day will offer you the option of three game drives within the Mara National Reserve, immersing yourself in this rich wildlife destination.


Depending on what you feel like, we have a range of activities to keep you occupied – game drives, Masai village cultural visits, walking safaris, or you can simply sit back and enjoy the wildlife interaction taking place down by the river or even book yourself in for some of our safari spa treatments!

For a particularly memorable and unforgettable experience, enjoy a surreal journey in a hot air balloon, with Governors’ Balloon Safaris, over the Masai Mara plains, ending with a delicious cooked, breakfast, complete with bubbles, wherever you land!
