Accommodation & extras
You can choose to stay in Nairobi Hotels before and after your safari. The standard of hotels in Nairobi is high, and we offer you a choice of the best in each price range.
Some itineraries may include a night or two at lodges. These range from the more traditional country hotel (such as the Aberdare Country Club, above) to the small game lodges of the Laikipia plateau (featured as a separate section).
We are also delighted to arrange “home-stays” at private houses and bush homes. These provide an intimate atmosphere and the best in personal service. The owners usually have a unique knowledge of their local environment : it’s history, fauna and flora, and of the local tribes and their customs.
A key element of most of our safaris is a few days home-stay at our own home on the farm in Rongai.
Optional extras for Set Itinerary safaris
Grant and Cameron set itineraries are complete safaris from Nairobi back to Nairobi. In addition we recommend various other add-ons suitable for a Grant and Cameron safari, such as a few days at the Kenyan coast. Please enquire for further details.
We offer the following extras:
Rates are subject to change without notice so please contact us for a quote. Considerable savings may be made by taking a taxi from the airport or your hotel, as often they do not pay VAT. Please note that all “No shows” will be charged at the full transfer rate.
Balloon flights in the Mara
You may choose to do an balloon ride one morning (usually the second morning in the Mara) instead of a game drive, weather permitting. Ballooning starts early (leaving camp at 5.00am) Includes a “bubbly” breakfast and game drive back. Price on application.
