Adventure to the cradle of the world


 Birthplace of mankind, huge, sprawling, complicated, mystical, breathtaking and vanishing. There is something about this amazing continent that gets into your blood,

inspiring poets and adventure seekers throughout the ages.

Home to magnificent species, from brilliant birds to giraffe and elephants. Where gazelle, lion and hyena storm and stalk in a dance that has existed since the dawn of time. Where the sunsets glow as no where else on earth. Join Arte for Elephants for this once in a lifetime, small group experience to the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara.

"I never knew a morning in Africa where I did not wake up happy". Hemingway


Days 1 & 3

Arrival in Nairobi- your cheerful driver will pick you up at the newly refurbished and modern Kenyatta airport in Nairobi Kenya, you will be whisked away and transferred to your comfortable Bed and Breakfast for two full, exciting days in the bustling capital of Kenya. After a delicious welcome dinner and possibly a dip in the inviting pool, we will rest and prepare for two action packed days of exploration including a visit to the world famous Elephant Orphanage OR Nairobi National Park. Followed by a visit at the Giraffe Sanctuary and a tour of the Karen Blixen museum (Out of Africa). Day two after a delicious breakfast- we head out with our private drivers in an rugged Range Rovers down into the great Rift Valley one of natures most impressive natural wonders. With stops for photos overlooking one of the most dramatic pieces of landscape on earth. We proceed overland to the magnificent Masa Mara home to thousands of animals, from the "Big 5" to birds in colors unlike anything you've seen before. But our adventure is just beginning!

Days 4-8 Into the Wild- SAFARI

After a warm welcome at our enchanting and comfortable eco lodge, top rated, Fisi Camp, (which masterfully epitomizes rustic "eco-camping" with permanent, spacious tents,  featuring ensuite bathrooms  warm showers, and solar recharging stations), relax on your private porch and enjoy awe inspiring sunsets across the African savannah! 

We awake each morning to  unique and exciting journeys,in rugged 4 x 4 vehicles exploring the terrain and searching for animals with our experienced, Maasai guides. No one on earth knows these hills and valleys like the Maasai, who are adept at tracking and finding wild species! The opportunities for photos are endless- from elephants, to gazelle. Imagine the thrill of seeing your first wild cape buffalo, cheetah or the illusive leopard.

Our horizons will be expanded with our day visiting the local Maasai tribal village, each visit helps sustain these famous savannah peoples and shows us, in so many ways how different, and how alike we all are. 

 Evenings round the camp fire, absorbing music of the deep African night, the roar of lion or rumbles of elephants beneath an African sky filled with a million stars. you will make memories that will stay with you forever! 


Day 8-9 A Life Reborn! 

After an early morning game drive, we will enjoy a leisurely lunch and then begin the drive back to civilization and the hustle and bustle of Nairobi We will enjoy our farewell feast with an overnight in our lush Bed and Breakfast. The next morning,  depending upon your departure time, you can join us for a little shopping excursion after which you will be able to relax at the hotel before departing towards your homeward flight. 

 You will return forever changed, a part of your soul wrapped in the timeless warmth and epic beauty of the African plains.
