Greater Kudu Fly-In Safari

Greater Kudu Safari: In full

This exciting safari itinerary includes three nights in wild dog country at a remote bush camp in Laikipia and four nights in the Maasai Mara’s Mara Naboisho Conservancy amid large prides of lion, prolific elephant herds and hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra. This safari includes excellent walking opportunities – Laikipia Wilderness is ideal for keen walkers and Naboisho Camp is one of the best game-walk bases in the Maasai Mara ecosystem.

If you'd like to experience the great migration in the Maasai Mara, the best timing for this safari would be August or September when the wildebeest herds are in the region seeking pasture.

After all the excitements of this safari, you may be keen to spend a few days relaxing on the the Kenya coast. It's very simple to add one of our beach holidays to your itinerary.

For the next three days you're based at this charmingly informal but superbly managed tented camp, with top guiding (usually from owner Steve Carey) and spectacularly good opportunities to track and observe wild dogs, elephant, leopard and other species in a vast area visited only by other guests at the five-tent camp.

At Naboisho, you're deep in lion country, and all the megafauna of the Mara ecosystem are your neighbours for the next four days. Wildlife drives at dawn and late afternoon can be complemented by wonderfully atmospheric and informative game walks, usually with the camp's manager, Roelof Schutte, who is a highly experienced guide.
