From Nairobi to the Kigio Wildlife Conservancy

Your safari adventure begins this morning at the Giraffe Center, established in 1979 to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe. At that time, there were only 130 left in the wild.

Then visit the Daphne & David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, where the care of orphaned elephants and rhinos is just a small part of their decades-long conservation work.

Then journey into the Great Rift Valley to the esteemed 3,500-acre Kigio Wildlife Conservancy, home to more than 3,500 heads of wildlife. You’ll arrive at the Kigio Wildlife Camp in time for lunch.

The animals are up with the first light of day, and the early light is one of the best times to experience the full majesty of Africa’s tallest mountain. After lunch, you’ll have time to take full advantage of your Lodge’s pristine setting, nestled between the open plain and Acacia woodland.
