Day 1: NAIROBI

We commence our African experience after meeting your Indy Escapes crew at our hotel at 5pm for check in to your glamping tents. You will be given an introduction to the trip and what you can expect along the journey, along with being able to ask any questions that you have, then we will hit the road tomorrow morning!

We will spend the afternoon around the pool together, getting to know your new travel buddies then we will all have a freshly cooked buffet dinner onsite. In the evening we will spend some time around a paved and seated campfire to enjoy a relaxing night connecting with other guests, before starting our adventure tomorrow morning.

Day 2: RUBEN 

 

We hope that everyone is recharged after a lazy night around the pool and is read to head to our first stop within Nairobis communities. After breakfast, we will arrive at the Ruben Centre, located in the Mukuru kwa Ruben slum, and received a guided orientation of the community project. 

 

The Ruben Centre, with its three core areas of Education, Health and Community Development, is attempting to reconcile some of the hardships that the residents of Mukuru face. Today you will be exposed to all of the areas and see which one resonates the most with you, then you will spend more time there if you like. It may be the school, childcare centre, library, maternity ward, clinic, music or gymnasium.

 

We will also be completing various fundraisers to help support the Ruben Centre before our tour departs, so if you would like to be involved (even if you are not joining us), please see the links below for more information.

We will head back to camp after spending the day in the community where you will have a the option to eating in or heading into town to try some local cuisine.

Day 3: ELEPHANTS, GIRAFFES & SAFARI

After breakfast we have an optional excision to the Giraffe Centre, David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Nairobi National Park, where you will get a taste of what is to come on a safari. Going with a local guide also means gleaning more insight into the city’s history and culture.

We will have a couple of breaks along the day, then head back to our rooms for a rest and chance to get changed before it is time to head up to the Ole Serini Rooftop pool to watch the sunset over the Nairobi National Park. We will enjoy a nice relaxing evening up here with dinner and a couple of quiet drinks for those who wanted to lounge around and connect with their new friends.

 

There is still another big day coming up in the communities tomorrow, so this is a great oppotuniay to enjoy Nairobi before you roll your sleeves back!

Day 5: MAASAI VILLAGE

 

Today, we start making our way to one of the most well known and popular places in Africa! We will hit the road in our 4 x 4 safari jeeps and start making our way through the Rift Valley. We will stop at some amazing viewpoints and have lunch at a at our Glamping Campsite in the Maasai Mara.

After lunch we will head out to spend time in a local Maasai Village, and even have the opportunity to see inside there homes. We will also explore the local area with a local Maasai Warrior, where we will be able to shoot a bow and arrow, and learn about local flora and fauna. After the village visit, it is time to to cool off at the resort pool before dinner. We recommend an early night because we a big day coming up tomorrow on our Maasi Safari.

Day 6: MAASAI MARA

We are up at the crack of dawn and have a big buffet breakfast before heading into the park as soon as the gates open. This will give us the best opportunity to see some of the animals hunting at dawn, plus it will also give us the chance to drive deeper into the less travelled areas of the park, like the Mara River - where the great migration takes place

We will be searching for the BIG 5! Originally referred to the difficulty in hunting the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and cape buffalo, we have the chance to try and spot all of them whilst in this section of the national park. If we are lucky we may even see a leopard, cheetah, hyena or crocodile.

We will arrive back at the campsite for dinner, then spend a night together around the campfire.

Day 7: HOT AIR BALLOON

Today, we hope that you will be able to tick a few more items off your bucket list! Those who would like to join, are able to head out on a once in a life time Hot Air Balloon Ride over the Maasai Mara. We will catch the sunrise whilst on the look out for wildlife and enjoy a champagne breakfast. Others who would prefer a sleep in will meet the rest of the crew after breakfast.

 

We will say goodbye to our amazing glamping village after breakfast and continue to head north towards the lakes region, where we will be making our way towards our lodge in Nakuru. Our spectacular lodge is located inside the Nakaru National Park, which is an incredible experience in itself. We will spend the afternoon looking out over the surrounding landscape from the pool at our lodge, whilst trying to spot wildlife.

Day 8: NAKURU

After an early breakfast, we will depart the lodge with a packed picnic lunch and head to the Menengai Volcano Crater for a hike then make our way down to the spectacular caves that surround the area before heading back to our Lodge for a buffet lunch!

 

We will then proceed on a game drive in the Nakuru National Park where you will have a chance to visit a unique sanctuary catering for a number of the endangered rhinoceros and the Rothschild giraffe. Also to be seen is a myriad different variety of birdlife in and around the lake, including thousands upon thousands of flamingo. Waterbucks, lion and leopard are also common at the park, so we have no doubt that your cup will be full by the time we leave to head back to the lodge.  We will have a campfire and drinks after dinner.

Day 9: NAIVASHA & HELLS GATE

Boom! Just like that we are on the last day of our safari and have an action packed day before heading back to Nairobi. We will start early after breakfast and head straight to Lake Naivasha , where you will have the chance to explore the lake by boat and see the hippos that inhabit the area. during the boat ride you will also have the opportunity to go to the Crescent Island Nature Reserve, where you can explore the island by foot and get nice and close to wildlife such as zebra and giraffe. 

After spending some time at Lake Naivasha we continue heading toward Hells Gate National Park, where you will have the incredible opportunity to explore the park via bicycle. This is a rarity in Kenyan National Parks, and is only made possible due to the lack of large predators such as lions and cheetah. We will have lunch in the park and catch a glimpse of Fischer’s Tower before we pack up and start heading back to Nairobi for our final night together.

Day 10: NAIROBI

Meet up for a breakfast together with your new friends, reflecting over what just may have been the most fulfilling 10 days of your life travelling through Africa! Can it get any better?

 

After breakfast the Indy Escapes crew bids you farewell as you continue your adventures through Africa.

 

What are you waiting for? It's time to tick this off your bucket list!
