Flying over the edge of the Ngong Hills, part of the Great Rift Valley and descend into the Mara, this is a short but stunning flight. Land at Musiara airstrip where you will be met by the Serian team. Game drive back to camp, settle in and enjoy the next 3 days of arguably one of the best game viewing.
Serian Camp (meaning “peaceful, calm or serene” in Maa) is the charismatic bush home of Alex Walker, filmmaker and guide in the Masai Mara. Serian is set in a secluded valley. Its eight, stylish “marquees” overlook the waters of the Mara River. The furnishings evoke the safaris of a bygone era: the natural colors of woven carpets on hardwood flooring and swaths of cotton setting off a hand-carved stone bath with river view, and a large verandah from which to enjoy the animal coming to the Mara River.
Serian's location in the North Mara Conservancy provides unsurpassed game-viewing: the migration of one and a half million wildebeest. Lion, Leopard and cheetah are year-round residents, feeding off the large herds of plains game sustained by the savannah. With over 450 species, the Mara is a birding hotspot. Serian also arranges helicopter flights, fly-camping and hot-air ballooning safaris.
Leave Serian after breakfast, take a picnic lunch with you this day so that you can enjoy and take advantage of a good long gamedrive, ending at the airstrip at 2.00pm for your afternoon flight to Malindi with Mombasa Air Services. On arrival at Malindi airport you will be met by the Delta team.
Delta Dunes - The delta known as “The Wild Place by the Sea”, on one side of the lodge you can enjoy 50 kms of uninhabited and uninterrupted beach, with safe swimming and miles of rippling rolling sand dunes. On the other side of the beach you have a maze of salt water creeks and bush which is a sanctuary for the wildlife and over 280 bird species. You have access to the wetlands on the main Tana River, the only one of its type in Eastern Africa. You will be treated to fresh and fabulous cuisine, featuring mainly freshly caught seafood, local fruits and vegetables, home made pastas and fresh fruit sorbets.
Activities include River Kayaking, creek fishing, sandyatching, guided walks, river tubing, birding, boat trips, game drives by boat, sundowners and beach dinners.
After 5 nights at the Delta, transfer to Malindi, for some of the best shopping in Kenya. This little Swahili town has a throbbing pulse with local and colorful markets; a trade street full of fabrics, locally produced brass lamps, art, antiques, a halva maker, fish market and some fabulous old buildings. Lunch and transfer to an evening flight Air Kenya to Nairobi.
