Today an easy start. After breakfast our driver will bring you to the leafy suburbs of Karen, named after Karen Blixen, the Danish author of the colonial memoir Out of Africa; her farm occupied the land where the suburb now stands.

In this area you will visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Trust, the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in East Africa. Later on go to the nearby Giraffe Centre.

Day 4: Ol Pejeta Conservancy

For this day we planned a day tour to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. This private wildlife conservancy is safeguarding some of the most vulnerable wildlife in the world (and the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees; in a sanctuary). It also boasts the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and in 2013 reached a population milestone of 100 black rhinos. Besides the rhino, the reserve also hosts all the other members of the ‘Big Five’ (elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard). Go on a game drive venture out there for close encounters, and if you are lucky you might even spot the endangered African wild dogs.

Start your experience with a guided hike of 2-3hrs to the plateau of Mt O’lolokwe/ Sabache. Spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure and mingle with the camp staff.
