African Grand Safari

6 Days Safari to Leopard Hill and Mara Naboisho Conservancy

Embark on a memorable safari in Mara Naboisho Conservancy whose rolling grasslands are the keeper of the famous African wildlife. Accommodation at Leopard Hill allows guests an intimate stay, far from the crowds. There is never a dull moment on the savannah. Sit on your terrace to watch the wildlife as they visit the watering hole facing your tent. At Leopard Hill, you will appreciate the modern architecture, unique star beds, the perfect bush views and local hospitality.

Day 1

With a warm welcome upon your arrival in Nairobi, you will be met and transferred to the airport by our knowledgeable driver, who will transfer you to Wilson Airport to arrive just in time to depart with your scheduled plane to Mara Naboisho Conservancy. Enjoy the beautiful scenery as you fly over the Kenya highlands, the Great Rift Valley and eventually arrive in Mara Naboisho about 45 minutes later. Upon arrival, you will be met by our friendly Maasai guides ready to take you on your very first game drive en-route to the camp. Be on the lookout for herds of zebra, topi, giraffe, wildebeest, and gazelle.

Arrive at the camp for lunch set in our stylish dining tent offering inspiring views of the savannah and the mystical double fig tree. After lunch, you will have some time to settle into your tented room followed by a relaxing massage. Or just enjoy an outdoor bubble bath in your bathtub on your private terrace as you watch the zebras and gazelles strolling past.

Enjoy the afternoon tea followed by an afternoon game drive in the conservancy. Experience the wildlife of the Mara Naboisho in near solitude since limited vehicles are permitted out on game drives. In the evening, dinner will be served at your choice of venue and you can end your day sipping wine by your private campfire place. When you are ready, retire to your tent to be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the wilderness.

Day 2

Wake up to an early morning game drive in the Naboisho Conservancy or enjoy a private sunrise yoga session on your tent terrace followed by breakfast prepared by our skilled chefs at the camp’s dining area. After breakfast, enjoy some downtime in your tent perhaps reading a book as you soak the savannah sun on your tent terrace. One of the classic safari highlights of this adventure is a bush lunch, an experience not to be missed. Join your guide for your transfer to a scenic location for a bush lunch. Our culinary team will set up the table, chairs, and campfire to create a real bush kitchen.

After lunch, you will have another game viewing opportunity as you drive back to the camp. Once you arrive at the camp, treat yourself to a massage session in the comfort of your tent or just relax with a good book as you enjoy the immense closeness to nature. Afternoon tea will be served by the double fig tree followed by an afternoon game drive and a sundowner of drinks and nibbles enjoyed under an Acacia Tree. As you head back to camp you will enjoy a night game that gives you an opportunity to see some of the nocturnal wildlife.

Day 3

Very early in the morning, you will have a wake-up call, and coffee, tea, and snacks will be served before you head out for a full day game drive in the Masai Mara National Reserve. The park is famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest migration and it is home to the Big Five; lion, elephant, rhino, cape buffalo and leopard. Watch out for herds of wildebeest, zebras, antelopes, and other game animals. Stop for a while to enjoy a picnic breakfast before continuing on with your adventure.

Around midday, your guide will locate a suitable Acacia Tree where you can relax and refuel on a picnic lunch. Enjoy lunch in our open sky restaurant with views of clear skies and the gentle Savannah. On your way back to camp you will have time for a cultural visit to the Maasai community working closely with Basecamp Explorer. You will have time to interact with the locals and gain understanding about their local way of life. Top off your afternoon adventure with a classic Basecamp Sundowner with carefully selected drinks enjoyed under an Acacia tree. Return to Leopard Hill for dinner. End your day with a stargazing experience right inside your tent where you have a retractable roof that gently slides back for a perfect nightly scene.
