OVERVIEW

WILDERNESS WELLNESS SAFARI

Disconnect from your devices and reconnect with nature in this invigorating safari for the soul and senses. Experience the diversity of Kenya’s wild landscapes and the incredible and variant wildlife as you journey to three diversely stunning safari locations. Game drive through the iconic Nairobi National Park – the oldest park in Africa – and photograph many of the ‘big five’ against the skyline of Kenya’s bustling capital. Journey to the rugged north where you will glimpse Samburu life and indulge in four days of nourishment for the mind and body through a specially designed wellness programme. Finally, stay at Solio, a haven of tranquillity and world famous rhino breeding sanctuary nestled between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains, where you will experience incredible rhino encounters.

* Physical demand for this safari can be whatever you make it! All activities and experiences can be tailored to any level of fitness and guests are able to enjoy all wildlife sightings from the comfort of a 4 x 4 safari vehicle. The guided walks and fitness classes are entirely optional and can be taken at your own pace.

We ran circuits in the shade of the palm trees, held planks in the dry river bed and hauled ourselves up in the astonishingly beautiful Sundowner Rock. A 45-minute bush run with Samuel, a Samburu warrior, was equally exhilarating. Accommodation at Sasaab was palatial, an open-air lodge which was whitewashed and breezy, its banana leaf thatched roof as high as a Cathedral’s.

With a sundowner in hand and looking out over the vast acacia dotted plains towards the Ngong Hills on the horizon, you will immediately feel a connection to nature and a deep sense of calm.
