Hotel Options in Nairobi:

Day 2: Olkiramatian Conservancy

Transfer to Wilson Airport after breakfast for your private charter flight from Nairobi to Shompole and the exquisite Lentorre Lodge. Lentorre is located on a spur off the Nguruman Escarpment, by a natural spring, in the middle of the Olkiramatian Conservancy, a Maasai community endeavor to safeguard their animals, traditional lifestyle, and legacy. You will have unique access to the camp. After settling in to camp, you’ll go on your first afternoon game drive in a vehicle that’s a little different from what you’re used to.

Accommodation:

Day 3: Olkiramatian Conservancy

Today you will head out on your first morning drive through the Olkiramatian Conservancy. With the Nguruman Escarpment and Mount Shompole providing dramatic, dark backgrounds, the range of wildlife we stand the chance of seeing includes a variety of plains game, giraffe and lion with the potential of seeing some of the rare species such as striped hyena. Your afternoon will be spent visiting a local school and Maasai Boma (don’t forget that the community and wildlife live side by side in this incredible landscape) followed by sundowners and a chat by the South Rift Landowners Association (SORALO). SORALO is a community-based and community-driven land trust established in 2004 to unite 16 Maasai communities in the management and security of their landscape.

Accommodation:

Day 4: Olkiramatian Conservancy

Morning & afternoon drives exploring the Olkiramatian Conservancy followed by an evening presentation by Guy Western on “Rebuilding the Pride” and the Conserving Coexistence programme. Since 2010, Guy has spearheaded the establishment of Rebuilding the Pride. Recently completing his PhD, Guy combines his experience and expertise to lead the Conserving Coexistence programme, where the teams of the community Game Scouts and Rebuilding the Pride join together to help communities to coexist with wildlife across the SORALO landscape.

Accommodation:

Day 5: Lion Tracking and visit to Lalenok Research Centre

Morning lion tracking and visit to Lalenok Research Centre, a major hub of SORALO activities and a site visited by numerous local and international school groups, independent researchers, and inquisitive minds who want to learn about coexistence in the South Rift ecosystem. Afternoon game drive and presentation on aerial photography as you prepare for day 1 of your Aerial photography activities.

Accommodation:

Day 6: Aerial Photography over Lakes Natron & Magadi

Begin your day with a one hour photographic flight over Lake Natron and Lake Magadi. Lake Magadi is the southernmost lake in the Kenyan Rift Valley, lying in a catchment of faulted volcanic rocks, north of Tanzania’s Lake Natron. During the dry season, it is 80% covered by soda and is well known for its wading birds, including flamingos. Lake Natron is a mineral-rich soda lake in northern Tanzania, at the border with Kenya. It’s a breeding ground for hundreds of thousands of lesser flamingos, despite the highly alkaline state of the striking red waters. It sits below Ol Doinyo Lengai, a soaring active volcano in the Rift Valley. Break for a bush breakfast on the shores of either Lake Natron or Lake Magadi and enjoy a morning of photographing the flamingos from the lake edge before returning to camp for lunch. Your afternoon will be spent on the lake edge again and as you enjoy an hour long scenic afternoon flight.

Accommodation:

Day 7: Game Drives in Shompole Conservancy

Today is your last full day in the region and you will look to fill any gaps that you may have in our portfolio of the region as you aim to document the people, wildlife and scenery that make up the diversity of Kenya’s South Rift Valley.

Accommodation:

Days 8: Departure

Enjoy the delicious comforts of breakfast before you catch a flight and return to Nairobi. Sample one of Nairobi’s excellent restaurants before transferring to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your international flight home
