8 Days Rift Valley & Maasai Mara

Women only vacations in Kenya designed for outdoor women. On this 8 days tour there are guided game viewing walks away from mass tourism with close sightings of giraffes, gazelles and zebras. Ontdek Kenya has over a decade of experience in women's adventure travel and we are known for our particular attention to detail that make vacations stress free. The walking distances in this tour are flexible to suit all walking abilities while ensuring that you are not cooped up in a safari bus for hours.

Women only vacations at Crescent Island

This women only vacation takes you through our favorite destinations: the Crater Lake and Crescent Island sanctuaries and Hellís Gate National Park, with easy to see game such as Giraffes, Waterbucks, Elands, Zebras and various Gazelles.

A safari in Maasai Mara, the Africa that everyone dreams of, takes the last 3 days of the tour with Elephants, Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, Topis and Hippos all calling for our attention. A walk guided by Maasai Morans makes this a perfect tour in all senses.

We can customize this women-only holiday to suit your specific needs, please contact Ontdek Kenya Safaris.


Day 1.Women only Vacation: Nairobi

Arrival at the airport at night and reception by Ontdek Kenya. Transfer from the airport to the Nairobi Safari Club or equivalent hotel in Nairobi.

Day 2. Crescent Island. O/N Lake Naivasha Sawela Lodge

After breakfast there is the briefing by the guide about the program. By 8.30 a.m. we leave Nairobi via the Nakuru road to the Rift valley. The Nairobi - Nakuru road is on a contour along the rim of the Rift valley and on viewpoints we will be able to see our whole route for the next days.

We arrive at the Sawela Lodge, on the shore of Lake Naivasha, in time for lunch. This recently opened lodge has beautiful grounds and lawns.

In the afternoon we do our first African game viewing walk at the privately owned Crescent Island, which is a peninsula on the Eastern shore of Lake Naivasha. There is a lot of easy to see game e.g. giraffes, waterbucks, elands, zebras and impalas. It is also a heaven for birds with +200 species recorded. The walk is gentle and satisfying. We return to the lodge in time for afternoon tea. Today's program should be taken as light as possible to wear off the jet lag.

Day 3. Women Only Vacation: Hell's Gate National Park. O/N Sawela Lodge

Women only vacations: in the Hell's Gate Ol Njorowa Gorge
We wake up for breakfast with the sun giving a wonderful effect over the lake. An early morning here should not be missed by anyone with an eye for birds since the lake boasts a wide variety of water and woodland birds.

After breakfast we do a short transfer to the Hell's Gate National Park. This is a unique park where walking is done in the middle of wildlife. Giraffes, zebras, warthogs and many types of gazelles are found here. The first part of this walk is done in typical flat African savanna in a volcanic area with huge rock boundaries. There are camphor and acacia trees all over and this is where to look for the giraffe as they mainly feed on them. A picnic lunch will be at a view point over the gorge.

The last part of the walk is done in the Hell's Gate Gorge by descending into a steep canyon with wild vegetation and running water from geysers. The climax of the day is in walking in the Side Gorge where the rocks have split to leave only a walking path. We climb back to the Rangers Post for transfer back to the lodge.

Day 4. Women only Vacation: Crater Lake. O/N Sawela Lodge

An early rising will ensure that one gets another magical display of the various birds. After breakfast we do a short transfer by car to the nearby Crater Lake Game Sanctuary. It is a lesser lake in the Rift Valley but a place where nature is at its best.

We do a walk in the sanctuary followed by a trek on the crater rim from where we see the lake from various angles. Pleasant interruptions on the walks will be from giraffes, black and white Colobus monkeys, elands and a range of gazelles.

Day 5. Women only vacations: to Maasai Mara. O/N Mara Leisure Tented Camp

We now take a break from walking to put all our attention to watching wildlife. To see the best of Kenyan wildlife, Maasai Mara is the place to be. Elephants, rhinos, giraffes, buffaloes, gazelles and all the big cats are found here. So, after breakfast we start our journey passing through Narok Town: a colorful Maasai town.  

Our game viewing does not actually start at the park gate. We will be able to see many animals along the way grazing side by side with the Maasai livestock. We reach the lodge or tented camp, our home for the next three days, in time for lunch.

Day 6+7. Maasai Mara. O/N Mara Leisure tented camp

These are our cultural and activity days in Maasai Mara. We do a morning game drive through the park and hike to a Maasai manyatta (=homestead). Here we will see how the typical Maasais live. An afternoon game drive makes the day complete. On day 6 we do a morning and an afternoon game drive. We break from the driving with an optional walk in a natural area with rolling hills and grasslands, out of the park boundaries.

Day 8. Women only vacations: Kiambethu Tea Farm + to Nairobi for outbound flight

Leave Maasai Mara in the morning for lunch at the Kiambethu Tea Farm. This is an old colonial home established by the early settlers and the pioneers of tea growing in Kenya. There will be a talk on tea: its arrival in Kenya, the growing, processing and up to when you put it into your cup. A short walk in the tea plantation and into a small remaining part of indigenous forest completes your women only vacation in Kenya.

We have a healthy farm lunch and thereafter transfer to Nairobi for the evening flight out.
