The hotel maintains much of the original 1932 design while offering you all of the modern amenities you require for your stay. What truly sets Giraffe Manor apart from other travel accommodations in Kenya, though, are the resident Rothschild Giraffe that roam freely on the property and you don’t need to worry about trying to sight these creatures on its grounds as they regularly stick their heads through open windows and over balconies to garner feed pellets from AfricanMecca guests.

The most prominent wildlife in the park includes 56 mammals and 450 bird species. Exploring Lake Nakuru Park is an opportunity to see many of Africa's most prized fauna in a natural and beautiful setting. Resting at an elevation of 1890 meters is the serene freshwater Lake Naivasha, a superb oasis to include on your exploratory holiday in Kenya. Just beyond its shores are papyrus swamps, acacia woodlands, forests and unique geologic features that are remnants of the area’s volcanic past. The nutrient-rich soil is fertilized by an abundance of water, including the Gilgil and Malewa Rivers, to create an ecosystem that is known around the world for a diverse avian presence, as well as game animals. More than 450 bird species have been identified including varied small and large mammals. Lake Naivasha is a RAMSAR site, a designation that reflects the ecological importance of the wetlands around the lake.

Safari Tier 1 - Loldia HouseJust less than three hours travel by road or twenty minutes by air from Nairobi is a place that gives you a taste for Kenyan country living – Loldia House. Enjoy a personalized holiday in central Kenya at the 6500-acre working farm set on the north-west shore of Lake Naivasha, a freshwater oasis in the magnificent Great Rift Valley. The colonial masonry architecture reflects an early settler style that luxuriously extends into the indoor common areas and 9 guest rooms. The four double en-suite rooms in the Main House feature muted color palettes that brilliantly accentuate the understated elegance of dressing tables, thatch and corrugated roofs, nightstands with lamps and chairs. Most rooms are positioned to provide views of the wild grounds and lake upon wakening, and private outdoor verandahs with lounging chairs invite quiet relaxation and conversation with a glass of wine.

Each year, one to two million flamingos arrive at the lake to feed on the algae that flourishes in the warm alkaline waters. Watching the long-legged, pink-plumed lesser and greater flamingos wade around looking for food is interesting, but when all these birds take flight, the show really begins! The spectacle has made Lake Nakuru a favorite East African travel destination for wildlife photographers and nature filmmakers. While back at the camp, you are offered 25 guest tents in a homely, welcoming setting to ensure you have a comfortable and serene tour of Lake Nakuru with AfricanMecca, and the attentive staff are very helpful and responsive to your needs. Guest tents are situated amidst landscaped campgrounds with views of the surrounding flora, trees and valley.
Safari Tier 3 - ElsamereElsamere is the one accommodation in Lake Naivasha that has an air of history and preservation about it. This is home where Joy and George Adamson spent their vacations and the later years of their life. Converted into a Great Rift Valley accommodation for value guest traveling in East Africa, Elsamere revives “Born Free” memories of the 1960’s and is famous for the European-style high teas that are served even today. The property houses a museum that preserves several items belonging to the Adamsons such as paintings, literature and other mementos from the movie that was adapted from the novel Elsa the Lioness. 10 rooms are located in single-story cottages with a portioned patio, overlooking the lake. Some of the lodge's rooms have a double bed while others have twin and triple beds making Elsamere an ideal budget accommodation for families sharing rooms. The cottages have names that bring back memories of Joy Adamson's pets, Pati (rock hyrax), Pippa (cheetah), Penny (leopard) and Elsa, the legendary lioness.

The feeling is further enhanced by the proximity to wallowing hippos, crocodiles and other animals that are just meters away. With such an ambience, Naibor Camp is the perfect place to unwind and recuperate during your high-pace African safari activities.

MASAI MARA - NORTH, EAST, SOUTH & WEST
After your stay in Central Masai Mara, you will proceed for two nights to a private conservancy in the northern, eastern, southern or western regions of the main reserve along its border, which serves as wildlife management buffer zones. Each conservancy is founded upon a mutually-beneficial collaboration between landowners, conservation organizations and guest camps. The private-ownership status of the conservancies also means that a greater variety of safari activities are offered to guests, many of which are restricted in the main reserve.
Recommended Accommodation Options In Masai Mara
1. Northern Masai Mara Camps And LodgesThe northern Masai Mara zone is comprised of six conservancies – Mara North, Olare Motorogi, Mara Naboisho, Ol Choro Oiroua, Ol Kinyei and Lemek. Each conservancy offers our guests unique accommodations, as well as incredible experiences in one of the world’s most pristine wilderness areas.
2. Eastern Masai Mara Camps And LodgesThe eastern zone of Masai Mara offers accommodations in the private Siana Conservancy as well as in the main reserve. We advise our guests that this area has the highest density of camps and lodges when compared to other zones, with the exception of Leleshwa Camp and Mara Bushtops that focus on high-quality Siana wilderness experience.
3. Southern Masai Mara Camps And LodgesThe southern zone of Masai Mara has the lowest density of guest accommodations when compared to the other zones. As a result, you enjoy a secluded experience in the remote bush country of the reserve and Olderkesi Conservancy. Cottar’s 1920’s Camp and Cottar's Homestead are extraordinary choices for our Tier 1 premier guests.
4. Western Masai Mara Camps And LodgesThe western zone of Masai Mara primarily includes accommodations on private leased Maasai lands outside the public reserve with the exception of Bateleur and Kichwa Tembo Camps that are set in a very small private andbeyond concession that allows access to night game drives and bush walks. All accommodations in the western section offer game drives in the Mara Triangle areas of the public reserve - sometimes known as the Mara Conservancy under the Trans Mara Maasai Council

You will proceed to Amboseli for the next two nights. Amboseli National Park is a majestic landscape where predator and prey interactions unfolds every day across the 392 square kilometers (151 square miles) of protected wilderness. The park borders Tanzania and is situated at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak, and the melting snow flows into underground springs that feed the swamps and wetlands that dot the plains. These water sources attract animals of all sizes, the most sought-after being– the free-roaming elephants, but you may also see elands, waterbucks, grant's gazelles, warthogs, coke's hartebeests, zebras and other grazing herbivores. The abundance of large prey supports lions, leopards, civets, wildcats and other elusive hunters, as well as jackals, hyenas and other scavengers.
Recommended Accommodation Options In Amboseli
Safari Tier 1 - Tortilis CampTortilis Camp is situated secluded in the south-western portion of the park with spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro and access to its private Kitirua Conservancy. At 19340 feet, the extinct snowcapped volcano dominates the scenery and provides vital water to the plains in the park. Melting snow flows into underground springs that emerge in wetlands and swamps that attract an abundance of prey, predator and avi-fauna. Most of the guest accommodations are twin or double tents, but for families on an adventure travel in Kenya, the camp also offers a family tent and a two-bedroom boutique, private house. The makuti-covered tents are constructed of canvas with a thatched roof, and the open insect-proof windows allow fresh breezes to keep you cool during the day and to allow daylight in. The private house features a separate sitting and dining area, and the veranda is one of the finest places on the property to see Mt. Kilimanjaro. Tortilis also have a swimming pool to cool off from the warmth of the day and offers massage, pedicure and manicure bush services – great for vacationing honeymooners who want some coddling.
Safari Tier 2 - Elerai CampAs part of the “Out of Africa Collection” of camps in Kenya, the Maasai partnered Elerai Camp is a 17-room boutique accommodation for your exclusive, luxurious wildlife safari in Amboseli National Park. Set within a remote section bordering the southeastern portion of the park, the nostalgic neo-design of the accommodation is reminiscent of the camps that were used by Kenya’s earliest explorers, and the hillside location gives you breathtaking views of the savannah plains and mighty snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro. Advantageously, the camp is located in the private conservancy of Elerai thus affording AfricanMecca guests access to nature walks, Maasai village visits and night game drives within the dense conservancy. Constructed of acacia poles, cedar wood floors, thatch roof and other native materials, the 12 tents evoke the boutique romance of East Africa with unobstructed views of Mt. Kilimanjaro while the 5 chalet-style guest suites are designed with natural stone and acacia wood, and feature ensuite bathrooms with bathtub, as well as private verandas with a shrubland view.
Safari Tier 3 - Kibo Safari CampSet in the heart of Maasai life on the scenic African plains and in the shadow of the largest, free-standing mountain in the world, the legendary Mount Kilimanjaro, Kibo Safari Camp is a huge, non-frill abode to stay as part of your wildlife vacation in Africa. It can take in over 150 guests on a full-house so expect personalization of services to be at the bare minimum. On arrival at the camp, your budget holiday in Africa starts with a modest welcome cool towel and juice drink to refresh you following the warm, dusty journey to the site. The wilderness bush and environmentally conscious camp structure and furnishings blend with their surroundings to provide a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Kibo Safari Camp has a total 73 canvas tents with a thatch roof to protect it from the heat of day, and options of double or twin, triple and family rooms are on offer. Each self-contained tent has an in-shower, sink and toilet, limited hot and cold running water and variable rationed electricity that operates only for few hours during the day and night.

Safari Tier 1 - Finch Hattons CampInspired by Denys Finch Hatton luxurious safari hosting expeditions, Finch Hattons Camp is an upmarket accommodation located in Tsavo West National Park. This boutique camp combines all the elements of luxury colonial living combined with contemporary camping that includes canvas tents on raised wooden platforms with frill facilities. Added to that is the subtle essence of Out Of Africa in the form of tree trunk pillars, thatched roofs and yesteryear pictures on the walls depicting scenes from Denys Hatton’s time. AfricanMecca guests traveling in magical Kenya will be welcomed in the main house of the camp, resplendent with its colonial furniture, stone fireplaces, hardwood floors and a decor that sends you back to the times of earlier explorers in Africa.

A resident pod of hippos, fresh water turtles and crocodiles cohabit here, and you might see a pair of eyes and snout watching you from a distance while stationary monitor lizards bask on the rocks closer to shore. The tents are nestled under thatched roofs and have netted windows that let in the ambience of the wilderness. They are furnished with twin beds or double beds with antique lamps, elegant, floor rugs, writing desk and plush seating arrangements. The en-suite bathrooms are permanent structures with a washbasin, hot water for your showers, shaver outlets and hair dryers.

Choose a book from their miniature library or relax with board games. Stone-lined, gravel pathways lead to the individual tented rooms scattered around the grounds. You will be ushered to your tent by an armed guard after dark where traditional lanterns with contemporary bulbs light the pathways at night. The camp has 27 tents and suites in all, some with twin beds and other with double beds with an optional third bed as an add-on. The octagon shape tents are made of canvas with a flap entrance and mesh windows that let in the daylight, cool breezes, scents of vegetation and resonances of the fauna countryside. Rollback entrances and a modest patio with safari furniture add to the charm of the tents. The en-suite bathroom is at the back and has a stone countertop, hairdryer and quality toiletries for your use. Safes, turndown and housekeeping services are also provided. Each of the tented rooms faces the rugged wilderness where you might chance to see impalas, elands, waterbuck, zebras or giraffes stopping by for a drink at the waterhole.
Safari Tier 3 - Voyager Ziwani Safari CampVoyager Ziwani Safari Camp has an air of history about it, having been the base of a German garrison in World War 1. Sited amidst a private sanctuary on the secluded end of Tsavo West National Park, the camp is an economy accommodation on the banks of the Sante River. Mount Kilimanjaro dominates the far horizon while terrapins and crocodiles keep you company from the river. A carpet of green grasses with an open dining area and bar, covered with thatch, adds to its ambience of its peaceful rusticity. It also has a pier leading out into the river where AfricanMecca lodgers touring the backwoods of Kenya can sit and watch the hippos frolicking in the water.

TOUR EXPERIENCES OF TSAVO WEST
RECOMMENDED PRE AND POST SAFARI AND BEACH EXTENSIONS IN KENYA
After this distinct safari, we recommend a combination off-beat extension to Samburu, Laikipia or Meru in Northern and Eastern Kenya depending on your safari activity and wildlife preferences. Thereafter, harmoniously conclude with a beach rest and relaxation visit to the Eastern coast of Kenya with varied seashore, cultural and historic experiences available, including the Swahili islands and beaches of Mombasa (Diani, Galu, Tiwi, Nyali, Bamburi), Lamu, Malindi, Watamu, Kilifi, and the secluded Msambweni coast, idyllic islands of Funzi, Chale or also Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania. The options are endless!
NORTHERN KENYA SAFARI EXPERIENCE - RECOMMENDED FOR 3 NIGHTS STAY
1. Laikipia - Lewa ConservancyLocated in northern Kenya, the private conservancies of Laikipia represent an outstanding model of wildlife management that provides AfricanMecca guests with a distinctive safari vacation in Africa. The varied conservancies are home to the second highest wildlife density in Kenya, and while many other areas are experiencing dwindling populations of animals, Laikipia is recognized for its ever-increasing numbers of wildlife, including threatened, rare and endangered species. Guests who visit Laikipia during their bush travel in Kenya will not only see the Big 5 roaming freely, but also black and white rhinos, African wild dogs, Grevy’s zebras, reticulated giraffes, Jackson’s hartebeests and other rare species. One of the greatest advantages of visiting Laikipia during your adventurous tour of Kenya is an opportunity to view an abundance of wildlife while partaking of activities that are restricted in national parks in Kenya. These activities are further enhanced by the low number of other guests due to limited rooming capacity at the sub-conservancies, making Laikipia the perfect choice for those who desire an exclusive African safari experience. Dependent on where you are staying in Laikipia, activities include game drives, bush walks, horseback riding, camel walks and camel rides, aerial helicopter and bi-plan safaris, village visits and much more. With a history that spans over decades, we recommend as our preferred Lewa Conservancy in Eastern Laikipia, as one of today’s most successful conservancies in Kenya.
2. Samburu National ReserveEnjoy a quintessential Kenyan northern safari in Samburu with unrestricted access to authentic rugged East African wilderness. As you travel through Samburu, the diverse terrain transitions from rolling plains to volcanic remnants. The vegetation is concentrated along the Ewaso Nyiro River, the primary source of water in the reserve. You may not expect to see wildlife in such a stark landscape, but Samburu is home to an abundance of animal species. The most notable and sought after are known as the Samburu Special Five – Somali ostriches, Grevy’s zebras, gerenuks, reticulated giraffes and Beisa oryxes. More common mammals are Grant’s gazelles, impalas, waterbucks, dik diks, olive baboons, elephants, warthogs, hippos and carnivores, including lions, cheetahs, crocodiles, leopards, to name a few.
EASTERN KENYA SAFARI EXPERIENCE - RECOMMENDED FOR 3 NIGHTS STAY
1. Meru National ParkMeru National Park is famed for its acclaimed setting of the book and movie "Born Free" by Joy and George Adamson. Your adventure in Meru begins as soon as you arrive. As you travel through its coarse roads, you will be struck by the rich canvas of colors and landscapes that the park displays. The earth is a vibrant rust-orange that offsets the lush green trees and vegetation of Meru. Trees like baobabs, acacia, doum palms and commiphora dot the expanses and the 13 rivers of Meru add a brown-green hue, their banks fertile and jade. The grasses of the plains are a sandy golden providing effective camouflage cover for the tawny lions, cheetahs and leopards that lurk in them, looking for a strategy to catch a prey meal of elands, zebras, reedbucks, waterbucks and more. Both white and black rhinos can be seen here that have been translocated from other wildernesses along with resident herds of elephants and buffalos. More than 300 species of birds thrive here and the rivers are rich with catfish and tilapia which in turn support a diversity of fish-eating birds like kingfishers, fish eagles and fishing owls.
EASTERN KENYA BEACH EXPERIENCE - RECOMMENDED FOR 3 TO 6 NIGHTS STAYThe contrast of soft white sand and azure blue water lulls you into the enchantment of Kenya’s many beaches and islands. Each beachfront setting offers a unique experience to suit the personal style of every guest. Bury your toes in the soft white sand while watching soothing waves lap the shoreline. The aquamarine water of the Indian Ocean stretches as far as the eye can see, meeting the baby blue sky on the horizon. A lovely cocktail refreshes your spirit like the breeze in the swaying palm trees. The beaches and islands of Kenya melt away your every concern and rejuvenate your body, soul and mind. Below the Indian Ocean surface is a breathtaking world of marine life. Kenya is, in fact, home to some of the world’s greatest dive sites, including the second longest barrier reef on the planet. You can experience scuba diving, snorkeling, water skiing, kitesurfing, boating and angling for marlin, sailfish and other large game fish. Complement your beach vacation with Swahili historic and cultural experiences in Mombasa, Lamu, Malindi, Watamu and Kilifi.

BEST TIME TO VISIT TSAVO WEST
We recommend the dry season in Tsavo as many animals travel to permanent water sources. The lack of rainfall means that few water and food sources are available thus the best time for a safari.
