  • Langata Giraffe Center: Feed endangered Rothschild giraffes and see warthogs.
  • Karen Blixen Museum: Set amid palm and cypress trees on a 4,500-acre farm that was once owned by the author of Out of Africa (better known by her pen name, Isak Dinesen), this museum houses memorabilia from the movie of the same name.

  • Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphans’ Nursery nurtures baby elephants to health before sending them off to roam Tsavo National Park.
  • Afternoon boat ride: You’ll sail along Lake Naivasha to see exotic waterfowl, hippos, and giraffes.

Days 5–7: Masai Mara Game Reserve

Each year, millions of zebras and wildebeests migrate across the Masai Mara Game Reserve, which contains the Kenyan portion of the Serengeti.

  • Two game drives give you the chance to see lions, rhinos, and elephants up close.
  • Optional balloon ride: Soar 1,500 feet above the reserve’s savannah and the Mara River ($450 fee).
  • Optional Masai Village visit: Meet members of the local indigenous population, many of whom wear bright red sarongs and live in thatched-roof huts. Watch them herding livestock and making handmade jewelry ($25 fee).
