Touching down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the temperatures and smells will immediately begin to change, officially welcoming you to Africa. Upon clearing customs and collecting your luggage, you will meet a Zicasso representative who will transfer you to Wilson Airport, approximately 10 minutes driving away. From here, it will be a short hop on a light aircraft before you finally reach the anticipated Maasai Mara.
Stepping off the plane, the warm breeze rushing off the savanna will signal that you have finally made it into the bush. At the airport, a representative will collect and transfer you through Big Five territory to a boutique lodge on the edge of the national park. While it is a long travel day, the luxury and exclusivity of this safari camp overlooking a river will make the entire journey completely worthwhile. As you enter your oversized sleeping quarters and collapse on your private porch jetting out onto a hippo-filled river, the adventure will have finally begun!
Tonight you will join the lodge for a dinner prepared by a fantastic chef. Using local ingredients grown in the lodge’s organic garden, this is sure to be one of the first of many delicious meals over the next week. As the moon rises and the spectacularly starry sky emerges, enjoy a final glass of wine or aperitif on the verandah before collapsing into bed.
