Event Description

Kenya            An Agri-Safari you cannot miss

 

March 2 – 12, 2014.

 

This ag-venture gets better every time we offer it.  We’ll  get “climatized “ at Nairobi’s unique, boutique Fairview Hotel and take in a tour of this culturally rich city, as well as the Elephant orphanage and rehabilitation centre. Then a trip through the stunning Rift Valley to Deloraine House for nights march 4 - 7.  This colonial mansion built in 1920 by Lord Francis Scott has hosted many British royalty and is set amid 5000 acres of magnificent gardens, croquet and tennis courts and swimming pool. Hosts Tristan & Cindy Voorspuy are accomplished equestrians with a stable of 80 horses to show to you. You’ll visit cashcrop and dairy farms, a flower seed producer and other Kenyan ag enterprises.  But a highlight is the full day of Lake Nakuru National Park famous for flamingos, rhinoceros, buffalo, giraffe, eland, gazels and the elusive leopard.  A scenic drive takes us to Offbeat Mara Camp for 2 nights March 8 - 9 in the amazing  Masa Mara Game Reserve.   This semi-permanent campsite boasts individual luxury tents complete with private bathroom and hot bucket showers.  You’ll doze off to sounds of wildlife grazing outside your tent and awake to sunrises over the plains that are home to wandering wildlife that you’ll see “up close and personal” from rugged land rovers with your local Massai guides. It defies description.  The meals and drinks are elegantly prepared and served by indigenous staff in a central tent.  Then, farmstay at House in the Wild”  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 two nights there  (March 10 – 11) 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, so book early.
