Drive to Nairobi and depart on an afternoon flight aboard a bush plane to the North Mara. Our focus for the next 5 days will be on epic morning and evening safaris. We'll awaken before sunrise each morning to a hot cup of tea or coffee before heading out into the bush. Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives, picnic in the Mara under an Acacia tree, shop at a local Maasai market, take a bush walk, visit the White Rhino Sanctuary and be ready to be surprised by some local traditions. Relax at your camp and enjoy the 100 resident hippos from your veranda. There are no boundaries or fences in this camp. This is the richest game viewing section of the entire Maasai Mara. Many documentaries have been filmed here. Also, please note that we are staying in a conservancy and have access to land that the general public cannot be on.

5 nights in North Mara Conservancy

You will feel at home in this beautiful and original treehouse with stunning nature views as we breathe and flow with enhanced wellbeing.
