Off-the-Beaten-Path Kenya

Take advantage of the special offer and travel to Kenya’s ancient Lolldaiga Hills and Ol Pejeta Conservancy, for a safari experience like no other.

Kenya’s majestic Lolldaiga Hills are an ancient landscape with well-documented archaeological sites, including cave paintings and burial mounds. The area was inhabited by the nomadic Laikipiak Maasai people, from whose language the name “Lolldaiga,” originates. “Daiga” means hair braid and refers to the magnificent rolling hills.

Spread across 49,000 acres of remote wilderness from cedar forests to open grasslands and valleys, the Lolldaiga Hills offer a legendary fly camping experience. Sleep in a luxurious, intimate, secure, and Covid-compliant fly camp, where your every whim is catered for, as you relax, rejuvenate and reboot. Take guided walks and get up close and personal with 385 bird species, and animals like the elephant, buffalo, zebra, including the endangered Grevy’s, many other plains game, vervet monkeys, and baboons. Watch lions, hyenas, and jackals go about their business. Located at an elevation of 6,000 feet, the legendary Lolldaiga Hills are a wonderful escape from reality!

Africa Keys is offering a re-opening special for a five-day, all-inclusive (including sundowners), airport-to-airport luxury fly-camping safari starting at $2,720 per person. It includes two nights at the famous Ol Pejeta Conservancy, featured in several award-winning films.

Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy is known for its wildlife conservation efforts, particularly for the African rhinoceros. With130 black rhinos and the only two female northern white rhinos left on the planet, Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa. Go on game drives across 90,000 acres of wilderness on the equator. See the rare Grevy’s Zebra, Jackson’s Hartebeest, and Beisa Oryx among other animals such as elephants, cheetahs, lions, leopards, buffalos, hippos, giraffes, African wild dogs, hyenas, baboons, Maasai ostrich, and other plains game. You will also find a chimpanzee sanctuary and learn how anti-poaching dogs are trained. Ol Pejeta Conservancy is among the few parks that permit night game drives, which allow you to view species not seen during the day. You can also enjoy canoeing, horseback riding, mountain biking, and bush walks.

Kenya’s entry requirements include a negative PCR-based COVID-19 test conducted within 96 hours of travel, body temperature below 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and no persistent cough, breathing difficulty, or other flu-like symptoms. Exit requirements are the same. Face masks are mandatory in public.
