2014 SAFARI HOTEL STRETCHERS

SAFARI STRETCHERS WITH OLIVIA

Welcome to Nairobi! The largest city between Cairo and Johannesburg, Nairobi is a modern, cosmopolitan capital. Located 5000 feet in the fertile highlands, it offers a delightful climate with warm days and cool nights.

Our host hotel is the Norfolk Fairmont Hotel. In the early “Out of Africa” days, this hotel was the stomping ground of hunters and adventure seekers and has been featured in numerous Safari movies. Today, it offers wonderful rooms and amenities including a spa, pool, gym and room service.

      SAFARI OPTIONAL TOURS IN THE MAASAI MARA

      YOUR SELECTION DUE BY AUGUST 1, 2014!

      OPTION 1 — HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE

      $475 PER PERSON

      (Morning departure only) Leave camp before dawn – the sky is clear, the air is brisk, and the conditions are perfect. As the sun rises over the Mara Plain, your balloons lift off one after the other, and the scene takes on a festive air as these bright splashes of color rise into the blue. Watch as a stunning panorama unfolds below you, and the balloon's basket becomes your lookout post for a bird's-eye view of the beauty of Africa.

      Float silently just a few hundred feet above herds of wild animals. Gazelle and impala watch curiously with their tails flagging – a warning to others that you are approaching. A pride of lions stalks an unsuspecting herd of wildebeest. Giraffe poke their heads out of the forest where they have been nibbling tender leaves. The tranquility of the experience is interrupted only by the occasional “whoosh” of the air heaters.

      You will go aloft with one of Africa’s finest ballooning companies. Their excellent professional pilots and ground crews assure your safety and pleasure both during the flight, and at a celebratory champagne breakfast upon touch down in the middle of the bush. Return to the camp for lunch and a midday rest.

      Note: Your tour will give you a birds-eye view of the African plains. The balloon does not get close to the animals.

      OPTION 2 — FLYING TO LAKE VICTORIA

      $475 PER PERSON

      (Morning and afternoon departure) Leaving the Mara Plains, you fly over the Soit Ol’oololo Escarpment where much of the motion picture Out of Africa was filmed. Your flight path takes you over hundreds of Maasai villages – all of which can be clearly seen from the air. Proceeding west, you enjoy a panoramic view of the Kisii Highlands, one of Kenya's richest farmlands. From the air one sees great expanses of sugar cane, tea, coffee, and pyrethrum, seen as bright yellow patches from the air. Descending over Lake Victoria, you fly above Luo fishermen who take time out from their activities to wave to your low-flying aircraft.

      Touch down at Lake Victoria's Rusinga Island (or Mfangano Island), where you are welcomed by your hosts who introduce themselves as you sip coffee and tea at the lodge. After a leisurely familiarization of the island's activities – and the tremendous birdlife on the island – you board your boats for a tour of the shoreline. You generally stay about thirty yards offshore, an excellent vantage point from which to view some of the more than 100 species of birdlife found here, including the rare, spotted-neck otter. The giant monitor lizard is also seen here. As you view the shoreline and watch brightly painted fishing dhows out on the lake, fishing lines are cast to slow-troll for giant Nile Perch. You will also have an opportunity to feed the magnificent osprey (fish eagle) that swoop alongside the craft to snatch the fish offered them by your boat pilot.

      After a leisurely morning (or afternoon) of wildlife viewing and fishing, you return to Rusinga Island (or Mfangano Island), where your catch becomes a sumptuous lunch. Your 40-minute return flight takes you back to the Maasai Mara in time for an afternoon game run en route to your lodge.

      NOTE: Final pricing for each of these optional excursions is subject to change.
