You'll be collected by your guide at 10 am and drive to Ol Pejeta Conservancy - the home of the last two remaining Northern White Rhino's. After lunch, you can enjoy a game drive as you search for elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and Cape buffaloes. You can also expect many chimpanzees getting up to mischief along the way. As the sun begins to set, you'll head back to your camp for dinner and relaxation.
After a light breakfast, you’ll be taken out before sunrise. Africa’s dazzling birdlife will be serenading you, and many of the big game will just be waking up. You'll experience a whole new perspective from the day before, and your guide will take you to all the best spots. On your way back to the airport, you'll have a brief stop at Nanyuki - where you can stand on the equator crossing.
Start: Your guide will collect you from Sirimon Park Gate at 10 am (perfect if you are doing Mt Kenya first). Alternatively, you can be collected from Jomo Kenyatta International airport.

Mt. Kenya can be hiked all year round, as it is very close to the equator, so it doesn't matter that much when you choose to hike the mountain. The drier seasons, however, are January - March and June - October, so we recommend picking these months if they work well for you. Expect temperatures of 25-30 C (77-86 F) at the bottom, and as cold as -20 C (-5 F) on the summit.
We recommend you check with your travel doctor, and you can find more advice at http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx.
The safari is family-friendly, with a minimum age of 6.
You may want to bring a small amount of money for tips and any souvenirs.
You will be travelling with experienced and qualified guides, and this safari is very safe. However, it is important to abide by the rules set by the National Park and always follow the advice of your guides.
If you have booked the Mt Kenya trip through Skyhook, then you can start your safari on day 5 of this itinerary. The pickup for the safari is at the park gate, at the bottom of Mt Kenya.
