At 1600hrs we embark on an afternoon camel riding in search of the numerous animal species that include the worlds threatened Grevy's zebra (there are approximately only 3,000 left), black rhino and white rhino. A host of other animals native to this part of East Africa also exists including elephants, reticulated giraffe and the shy aquatic Sitatunga antelope.

Day 04 Lewa/Meru
In the morning we have an early start with a normal Walk in the Wild which involves a full breakfast then breaking to pass the heat of the day under the shade of an acacia tree. This is an opportunity to allow the animals to come to you and often turns up some excellent sightings. Lunch will be served in the bush and thereafter we check out and depart for Meru national park by road. We embark on an afternoon game drive of Meru national park at 1600hrs. Meru national park hosts all the members of the ‘Big Five' (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard), and is one of the two areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness made famous in the bestselling book and award winning movie Born Free. Elsa the Lioness is buried in this park and part of Joy's ashes were scattered on her gravesite. Joy Adamson released Pippa the cheetah in this park. Dinner and overnight at Elsa Kopje

Day 05 Meru/ Lamu
An early morning game drive at 0630hrs, and thereafter breakfast. After breakfast we depart for Lamu Island by air via Wilson Airport with lunch at the Wilson Airport. We arrive in Lamu late in the afternoon. Lamu is a place like no other, a peaceful tropical island where life is lived at its own relaxed rhythm, but a place whose history is as mysterious and fascinating as the winding streets of its medieval stone town.The island itself is a beautiful place of rolling dunes and endless beaches, where tiny villages nestle among coconut and mango plantations and lateen sailed dhows ply the waters. But Lamu’s real attraction is its Old Swahili town and the fascinating islands. Dinner and Overnight

Day 06 Lamu
After breakfast we have the whole day at leisure sampling the hypnotically exotic experience, made even more enjoyable by the relaxed and welcoming attitudes of the locals. To visit Lamu is to enter another world, and the visitor finds themselves becoming a part of this world. Life slows down, and long days are spent strolling along the waterfront, exploring the town or relaxing on the beaches. Dhow safaris can take you beyond Lamu into the surrounding archipelago, where isolated villages, ancient ruins and a few luxurious and exclusive resorts lie hidden among the islands of Manda, Siyu, Pate and Kiwayu. This idyllic island speaks to the heart and soul, and a trip to Lamu is a romantic experience that can become a lifelong affair. Dinner and Overnight 

Day 07 Lamu/Nairobi
