Day 1 Nairobi
Arrive Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is the largest city in East Africa. It began as a depot of the East African Railroad in 1899, and in little over 90 years has become one of the major cities in modern Africa, and a headquarters of the United Nations. A vi- brant and rapidly expanding city, Nairobi is a mosaic of many races and cultures. Interesting sight- seeing opportunities in Nairobi include the AFEW Giraffe Center, the Karen Blixen Museum, the National Museum and many arts and craft studios and galleries. Overnight at the Holiday Inn - the a lovely hotel set on lush grounds on the outskirts of Nairobi. Overnight at the House of Waine
Days 2-3 Lake Natron
Depart after breakfast and catch a private charter from Wilson airport to Lake Natron on the southern floor of the Great Rift Valley. Owing to its surrounding salt flats, this lake is inaccessible to predators and its for this reason that thousands of flamingo descend on the lake each year to nest on elevated mud mounds at the lake’s edge safe from any potential predators. Freshwater springs at the Lake’s shore attract a host of other birds.
Days 4-5 Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
Catch a flight back to Nairobi and connect to a scheduled bush flight to Lewa Wildlife Conser- vancy. Located near the foothills of Mt. Kenya, Lewa Downs is a 45,000-acre cattle ranch that has been home to the Craig family for three generations. Lewa Downs is part of the area of Kenya where traces of some of the earliest humans have
been found, and guests are free to search for their carved stones, hand-worked tools, and other artifacts.

After breakfast, catch a flight to the hot and arid fringes of the Northern Frontier to Samburu Game Reserve, an oasis in the vast open and dry district.
