DAY 3 : Nairobi /Sweetwaters, Kenya
After breakfast drive to rural Nanyuki, Kenya, home of the Ol Pejata Sanctuary. En route, we cross the Equator, where we’ll stop to observe the coriolis effect on swirling water— which explains why storms spin one direction in the Northern Hemisphere and the opposite in the Southern.
Continue on to Sweetwaters Tented Camp in the private Ol Pejata Conversancy, which has the highest wildlife concentration per acre in Kenya. Amidst a magnificent setting of open plains, an ideal locale for our small group, you'll be shown to your deluxe safari tent, then we enjoy lunch at the camp dining room. In the afternoon, set out on the first of three guided game drives in the preserve. We’ll also stop at the conservancy's sanctuary for orphaned chimps, the only such facility in Kenya, where you can observe and learn about these intelligent primates.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner
