Itinerary

Day 1 - Masai Mara National ReserveMeals: L D
Walking in the bush
Take off from Wilson airport in Nairobi for your short beautiful scenic flight to the Masai Mara Reserve. Home to the Great Migration and countless TV documentaries it will soon become very clear what makes this piece of Africa so famous. Waiting at the airstrip will be the smiling face of your driver guide who will spend the next two days showing you his home, the famous Masai Mara. Little Governors Camp is set on the edge of a marsh teaming with game and bird life. Even getting to the camp is an adventure; you will climb into your little boat and get rowed across a small river to get to your little exclusive camp. Enjoy lunch watching the marsh before you join your driver guide on an afternoon game drive out in the reserve. The Masai Mara has some of the best sunsets in the world and are best enjoyed with a cold drink in hand with the sounds of the bush providing the best background music around.

Accommodation: Little Governors
Day 2 - Masai Mara National ReserveMeals: B L D
Elephant in Masai Mara
Wake up to the smell of fresh coffee and perhaps some morning visitors grazing outside your tent as you get ready for your early morning game drive. Mornings in the Mara are magical and there’s nothing like a cup of tea with a herd of elephant or a pride of lions. Back at the camp, breakfast with all the trimming is served in the mess tent with lots of activity in the marsh to keep you entertained for hours. A visit to the local community after breakfast provides a small insight in to the traditions of the local Masai people. Educational and moving, guests are always welcomed with open arms. After lunch the second game drive of the day awaits you and fingers crossed you get to tick everything off your all-important list. Back at camp the campfire will be roaring and drinks are served as you settle down for your last night in the wild.

Accommodation: Little Governors

Type of vehicles used:

For transfers to and from the airport and long distance trips reliable and modern minibuses are used. Please note that we cannot guarantee air conditioning.

On safari drives open-topped jeeps are used.

Food and drink:

The food prepared at the lodges and/or hotels on this tour will be of an international nature and suited to a broad range of visitors. If you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know in advance so that we can inform the lodges and hotels along the route. Alcoholic drinks, unless specifically mentioned in the itinerary, are not included in the price.

Baggage and what to bring:

Important note: If your itinerary includes a leg of the journey on a light aircraft then please be advised that the maximum TOTAL weight allowance including hand luggage is 15kg (approx 33lbs) and all luggage must be in a soft bag i.e. NOT a suitcase. 

We recommend that you do not forget to pack the following:

- Insect repellant cream/spray

- Camera and binoculars

- A torch (flashlight)

- A waterproof/dustproof bag

 

What to wear:

Although Kenya lies in the tropics it can get chilly in the evenings and early mornings. On this trip we recommend that you include the following in your baggage:

- A pair of sturdy lightweight shoes or boots

- Light coloured clothing with long sleeves and legs for the evenings and early mornings

- A hat to keep the strong sun off your head

Level of ability required:

Although there will be no special strength and fitness requirements, please note that safari lodges situated in remote areas are by their very nature lacking in many of the modern conveniences found in cities. For this reason please be prepared for uneven floors and sometimes challenging access.

You must be able-bodied and have the ability to move independently without help on this tour.

Health and vaccinations:

You should speak to your health provider about what vaccinations you will need for your trip to Kenya. In addition, most doctors recommend using anti malarial pills for your visit and taking measures to avoid being bitten by mosquitos, such as covering up exposed arms and legs. Lodges will provide mosquito nets over the beds.

If you take any medication, be sure to bring it with you, as well as details of your prescription. 

We advise all travellers to take out comprehensive travel insurance before their trip.

While you are away:

If you are away on holiday with Albatros Travel in Kenya and someone needs to get in touch with you urgently, they can call our emergency number, which is +254 722 521686

Bringing Electronic Equipment:

If you are bringing electronic equipment to Kenya, such as a digital camera, laptop computer, smartphone etc. and need to plug it into a wall socket then you should consider buying a voltage surge protector. Voltage in Kenya is set to 220v. Most (modern) electronic equipment can switch automatically to this voltage, but it is best to check the label on the power supply. Most lodges provide electrical power by way of a generator, so to protect your equipment against voltage surges it is advisable to but a voltage surge protector. Plugs in Kenya are of the British 3 pin variety, so if you are coming from outside of the UK you will need to buy some adapters, which are readily available at airport stores.

Phones and Connectivity:

If you are planning on bringing your mobile phone and/or wifi enabled laptop to Kenya you should bear the following in mind. Kenya's phone system supports 3G, and this is how most telecommunications are managed. Furthermore, many safari lodges and hotels offer wifi to their guests, and there are numerous other hotspots around the country. If you want to stay in touch during your stay in Kenya the best course of action is to buy a credit-loaded sim card for your phone/mobile device in Nairobi, and then connect to the internet and make phone calls via this.

Getting to and from Kenya:

Many carriers fly directly to Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and, to a lesser extent, Moi International Airport in Mombasa. If you arrive a day or two before the start of your tour, we can help you to arrange hotel accommodation and book excursions for you. Please note that the price of this tour does not include international airfares.

Tipping and Other Costs:

Tips are expected in Kenya by anyone who provides you with a service. This could range from porters and waiters to drivers and local people whose photo you would like to take. As a general rule, it is polite to provide driver/guides with about $10 per day if they give a good service. Tips should be in Kenyan Shillings, as staff will find it difficult to use foreign currency. Other than money for tips we advise you to bring extra money on your trip to buy drinks and handicrafts.

Insurance:

Please note that travel insurance is not included in the price of this tour. We suggest that you take out a comprehensive policy from a reputable provider. If you want the peace of mind of knowing that you have an air ambulance available during your trip you could consider taking out temporary membership of the Flying Doctors.

Visa requirements:

Depending on your nationality you will probably need a tourist visa to enter Kenya for this tour. The current cost of a single-entry tourist visa is USD 50 per person and these can be purchased on arrival, for most nationals, in all major currencies.

For more comprehensive information visit the Project Visa website. 

Cancellations:

If you need to cancel your trip for whatever reason, please get in touch with as soon as possible.

For more information about cancellations and refunds please refer to our general Terms & Conditions.
