    6 Day: Natural Wonders Safari


    Day 1: Nairobi - Masai Mara

    On arrival at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met by a Sanctuary Retreats representative who will transfer you to Wilson Airport for your connecting flight to the Masai Mara, where your Olonana guide will meet and transfer you to the camp. The Masai Mara National Reserve is the arena for one of the most breath-taking events on the planet - the Great Migration - that involves the largest mass movement of land mammals anywhere. The migration is usually present in the Masai Mara between July and October. It is a sight to behold as you weave through the herds on your way to the camp. On arrival at Sanctuary Olonana there is time to relax and freshen up in your tent before lunch is served. After lunch there is time to relax in your luxury home for the next three days, and guests will then proceed for the first game viewing drive of the day.

    Meals Included: Lunch and Dinner
    Overnight: Sanctuary Olonana



    Day 2: Masai Mara

    After breakfast at the camp, accompanied with your picnic lunch, you will leave with our expert guides to explore the Mara for the better part of the day to understand the reasons why the great migration takes place every year. The Mara is a fabulous place, the plains offers rich food for elephants amongst the thousands of herds of wildebeest and topi, zebra, eland, buffalo as well as Thomson's and Grant's gazelle. Adding drama to the already extraordinary spectacle, the Masai Mara is known for its big cats. Lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards, wild dogs and jackals prepare themselves patiently for their share of the banquet. You will then return to camp and spend the late afternoon at leisure. Relax by the pool or revitalise at our mini-spa which offers a range of treatments from facials to body massages.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    Overnight: Sanctuary Olonana



    Day 3: Masai Mara

    During your stay at Sanctuary Olonana there are a variety of activities that can be booked on request. One possibility is a breath-taking balloon safari. Float gently over the plains with a bird's eye view of the game below as the sun rises slowly over the horizon. It also offers a different perspective and great view of the migration. After around one hour the balloon lands and a full breakfast is served in the middle of the bush with glasses of bubbly to toast your flight. On your last evening drive out into the bush, a private and secluded clearing is prepared for an elegant dinner in the middle of the wilderness. Candles flicker in the darkness, as your waiter serves a delicious bush dinner. After dinner you can retire to the warmth of the campfire where brandies and liqueurs are served as guests relax and absorb the peace and beauty of the African night.
