The Great Kenya Migration Safari Itinerary
Our Kenya safari begins in Nairobi, where we transfer to our boutique hotel located in the quiet residential suburb of Karen on the outskirts of the city. This area at the foot of the Ngong Hills is named for Danish author Karen Blixen, also known by her pen name Isak Dinesen, who wrote the famous memoir Out of Africa, chronicling her life on a Kenyan coffee plantation in the early 20th century. This evening, enjoy a welcome dinner with our safari Expedition Leader, and a preview of the adventures that lie ahead.
Days 2–4: Private Mara Conservancy—Nat Hab's Private Mobile Camp
Transfer to the airport for our flight to the Maasai Mara. Our first safari destination is a vast private conservancy offering unparalleled access to wildlife viewing. Nat Hab's own mobile camp offers bush luxury in classic canvas tents, surrounded by all the natural wonders of the Maasai Mara ecosystem without the crowds. The conservancy model has been a boon to the region's legendary wildlife, creating buffer zones and protecting migration corridors while providing economic benefits to local landowners through responsible safari tourism.

Located in a wildlife hotspot, the site also provides easy access to the rest of the reserve, including the main river systems. Wildlife drives take us among myriad plains animals—not only the thundering herds of thousands of wildebeest and their zebra
