An unforgettable agri-safari

After our two previous ag-ventures into Kenya, it’s been a “must repeat” on our bucket list. A brief tour of culturally rich Nairobi will include the Elephant orphanage and rehabilitation centre. Then a trip through the stunning Rift Valley to Deloraine House, a 1920’s colonial mansion that has hosted many British royalty and is set amid 5000 acres of magnificent gardens, croquet and tennis courts, a swimming pool and a stable of 80 horses. We’ll be pampered here for a few nights and visit cashcrop and dairy farms, a flower seed producer and other Kenyan ag enterprises that you probably did not know existed. A highlight is the full day at Lake Nakuru National Park famous for flamingos, rhinoceros, buffalo, giraffe, eland, gazelles and the elusive leopard. Next is a scenic drive to Offbeat Mara Camp in the amazing Maasa Mara Game Reserve. This semi-permanent campsite boasts individual luxury tents complete with private bathroom and hot bucket showers. You’ll doze off to the sounds of wildlife grazing outside your tent andawake to sunrises over the plains of wandering wildlife that you will see “up close and personal” from rugged land rovers with your local Maasai guides. It defies description. The meals and drinks are elegantly prepared and served by indigenous staff in a central tent. Then, farmstay in private guest cottages on the banks of the river at Olerai farm operated by Tarquin & Lippa Wood, conservationists and large grain and cattle farmers. We’ll spend time there as guests of this longtime farming family and learn how Kenyan agriculture is poised for the next era of development in this amazing continent. This tour is a unique blend of Agriculture and Safari that is unlike any other…….don’t miss it. Tour size is limited to 10 participants.
