African Hawk-Eagle Fly-in Safari

Two luxurious camps provide quieter game-viewing within Laikipia and the Mara ecosystem. Situated on private conservancies, Lewa Wilderness and Naboisho offer the chance to sight all of the ‘big 5’ and enjoy a range of safari activities.

African Hawk-Eagle Fly-in Safari: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the African Hawk-Eagle Fly-in Safari. Everything we do is completely tailor-made so while this is an idea which works well, we’ll always design an itinerary just for you.

"Fantastic game viewing with an excellent guide, Supukia."

Lewa Wilderness is extremely friendly and relaxing. We really enjoyed the homely feel, and the way you could just help yourself to drinks from the cabinet. That the lodge gets a lot of repeat business is testament to this atmosphere, and also perhaps to the fantastic variety of activities – you have to come back for more. Lewa makes a great option for families who want a fenced property for their children, and couples who want somewhere more permanent than a tented camp. See our full report on Lewa Wilderness

Naboisho Camp

4 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesMaasai Mara Conservancies, Kenya

Appealing both to safari purists and those seeking a little luxury, Naboisho Camp is one of the most upmarket of the handful of small, unfenced camps in the relatively little-visited Mara Naboisho Conservancy, just north of Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve. Surrounded by untouched savannah and dense thicket, it is located in a game-rich area where guests frequently witness spectacular wildlife events.

"Superb upper end camp with great food, facilities and guiding."

Arrived 5 Oct 2019, 4 nights

Very well run and smoothly hosted Naboisho Camp is hard to fault. Standards of service and food are excellent and the comfort and sense of space extend throughout the camp. While the generously spread tents are capacious and smart they have retained a feel of the bush with their open-air safari showers. The guiding is superb, and the wildlife experience first-rate. Most of all, while the camp is a substantial and permanent set-up, its impact on the local environment feels relatively low and guests can expect exciting wildlife action on their doorstep.

If you're not staying in the Maasai Mara National Reserve itself, the chances are you'll be in one of the outstandingly wildlife-rich Maasai-owned private conservancies just outside the reserve boundary. However, a full-day game drive in the reserve is usually included, to visit the Mara River and see some of the reserve's fabled wildlife locations.
