Nairobi, Maasai Mara (Kenya),
Ngorongoro, Serengeti (Tanzania)

African Safari All-Lesbian Adventure Tour Our All-Lesbian African Safari to Kenya and Tanzania is 10 days of adventure designed to delight you. Visit Nairobi, Kenya; the Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area in Tanzania; the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania; and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. From amazing service at the best 5-star hotel in Nairobi, to special cultural experiences, wildlife drives, and a local guide who knows Tanzania and Kenya inside and out, Olivia has orchestrated a premier African safari adventure just for you.

Few places on earth can lay claim to such superlative natural wonders as Africa. The timeless savannahs of the Serengeti. Ngorongoro Crater, the famed “Eighth Wonder of the Natural World.”

The marvels of this land are as celebrated as those who have bravely explored them. An experience akin to being hosted at a friend’s private camp on the African savannah, and then moving to another friend’s bush home on the edge of the virgin forest. Enjoy the rhythms of safari life in the timeless manner of families who have spent their lives in Africa. Olivia’s African Safari Adventure; a trip of a lifetime.

 

Tanzania All-Lesbian Safari Tour

 

Olivia brings you an unparalleled African experience—Visit with an esteemed Maasai elder; take in stunning vistas filled with lions, leopards, gazelle, and hippo; feed a giraffe, and see an elephant feeding; visit Karen Blixen's "Out of Africa" home; lunch with a bead jeweler whose profits go to ensure disadvantaged girls are provided with housing and an education…and that's just the beginning! We have carefully arranged this trip so that you spend the bulk of your time exploring! Three flights with all transfers within Africa are included to enhance your comfort and minimize lengthy drives on dusty, bumpy roads, so you can spend more time taking photos and making memories. On safari, we will seat a maximum of six guests in our nine-passenger vehicles, guaranteeing you a window seat and access to a pop-up roof hatch.

We've chosen expert guides who know and love Olivia, and who help us make your vacation the trip of a lifetime. Our guides are also making a difference in their local communities. For example, our safari tour operator gives back extensively to the Nairobi community, helping girls escape the slums by sponsoring scholarship programs. We'll even have an optional visit to the children in the AmericaShare program.

African Safari All-Lesbian Adventure Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Thursday, November 7, 2019
Arrive Nairobi, Kenya
African Safari Lesbian Adventure - Nairobi, KenyaWelcome to Nairobi. The largest city between Cairo and Johannesburg, Nairobi is a modern, cosmopolitan capital. Graceful jacaranda and bougainvillea line the main streets, and parks and gardens occupy large areas in the centre. Located in the fertile highlands at 5,000 feet, it has a delightful climate, with warm sunny days and cool nights. The city has undergone a dramatic expansion in its recent past. Today, you will see a thriving business centre, with the modern Kenyatta Conference Centre and Parliament Building, first-class restaurants and hotels. The traditional architecture still survives in colourful wooden buildings with tiled roofs and arcades from the colonial era. Your Olivia Safari Director will meet you after you pass through customs at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and you will be transferred to the Fairmont Norfolk Hotel. A dedicated Airport Team will coordinate and handle all the arrivals. Olivia-Micato porters will expedite luggage at the airport for you. Enjoy a cool drink in the vehicle while you transfer from the airport to the hotel, where you will be pre-registered for checkin. You will be greeted with a welcome drink and a welcome package. Your complimentary Olivia Safari vest will be waiting for you in your room. Overnight at the Fairmont Norfolk Hotel.

Hotel: Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel, Nairobi, 5*

 

Day 2 - Friday, November 8, 2019
Nairobi, Kenya
Kenya Lesbian Tour - Karen Blixen Estate, NairobiAfter an early morning breakfast at your hotel, your Olivia Micato Safari Director will give you a Safari Briefing where you will have a chance to ask all the questions you have about your upcoming safari. You will also be properly welcomed with an authentic safari hat and a hand-carved animal necklace.

Visit to Karen Blixen Estate
Karen Estates was the home of Lady Karen von Blixen, author of the book Out of Africa, from 1917 to 1931. The National Museums of Kenya restored this lovely home to commemorate Karen Blixen's fascinating life. By the window in the panelled room, she wrote her letters from Africa; outside the front door, she hung the lantern signifying to Denys Finch-Hatton that she was home; and, from the veranda, she viewed the Ngong Hills

Visit to Giraffe Centre
Continue to Giraffe Centre, resting within 120 acres of primeval forest, only eight miles from Nairobi. It is home to the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW), devoted to the preservation of endangered Rothschild giraffe. The center raises and relocates the giraffes to the wild. In addition to a multitude of other good works, AFEW brings thousands of African school children, many of whom would otherwise never see a wild animal, to the center for educational programming. You will have the rare treat of hand-feeding these gentle giants while facing them eye-to-eye from an elevated viewing platform.

Dame Daphne Sheldrick Elephant OrphanageVisit the Dame Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage
Featured on "Oprah" a few years ago, it was established by Dame Daphne Sheldrick adjacent to her home on the edge of Nairobi National Park. An engaging world-class conservation figure, her late husband was the first Game Warden of Tsavo National Park and in his memory she initiated a memorial foundation and animal orphanage. Mrs. Sheldrick is the premier authority on the successful raising of milk-dependent infant elephant and rhino orphans, and their re-releasing into the wild. Out visit will coincide with the animals' 11:00am feeding.

Lunch at Gemini Desai
Gemini is one of Kenya's most renowned jewelry designers, crafting remarkable pieces of wearable art from exotic beads. Gemini travels the world in search of beautiful beads, both old and new, and is an authority on the history and significance of beadwork throughout the ages. From the ancient trade beads of Marco Polo to traditional Maasai marriage necklaces, beads have played an important role in countless cultures. Gemini opens her home exclusively to Olivia travelers – a unique chance to meet a fascinating Kenyan woman operating a cottage-industry-turned-international-business, to learn about the history of beads, to buy some beautiful and unique gifts to bring home and to enjoy luncheon in her garden. Olivia is proud to support Gemini's work, as she donates a portion of her proceeds to sponsor young girls from the Mukuru slums for full board and schooling. The afternoon is free for optional shopping at the Collectors Den or rest time. Dinner and overnight at the Norfolk Hotel.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 - Saturday, November 9, 2019
Nairobi, Kenya / Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
Tanzania Lesbian Safari - Ngorongoro Conservation AreaAfter an early breakfast, you’re off on safari! A charter flight will take you to Kilimanjaro Airport in northern Tanzania. After clearing immigration formalities, you will continue with a charter flight to the airstrip at Lake Manyara. Enjoy lunch at the Lake Manyara Serena Lodge before driving two hours to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and your lodge. Facing the always magnificent sunsets to the west, and located at the highest point on Ngorongoro crater’s entire rim, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge stands well over half a kilometer above the crater floor and offers unparalleled views across this enormous caldera. Themed around traditionally circular African houses with conical roofs and decorated with examples of Africa’s rich tapestry of artistic traditions by way of rich woodcarvings and sculptures, the lodge harmonizes perfectly with its dramatic surroundings. But the drama does not just stop with the great outdoors: it also flows through the split-level interiors of the main building which all offer an unsurpassed generosity of space while somehow managing to combine an almost magically welcoming ambience of both warmth and coziness. Dinner and overnight at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Hotel: Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge, Ngorongoro, 4*

 

Day 4 - Sunday, November 10, 2019
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
Ngorongoro, Tanzania lesbian safariJourney in a 4-wheel-drive vehicle into one of the world’s largest calderas — nine miles in diameter and 2,500 feet deep. Spend the morning tracking animals on the floor of the crater. Declared a sanctuary in 1928, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area contains within its borders 30,000 mammals, including the last population of black rhino in northern Tanzania and all the “big five” game animals. Diverse habitats of forest, swamp, grassland and lake make it an exciting area to explore. After a day of adventure and a privately catered picnic lunch on the crater floor (subject to the approval of park authorities), return to your lodge. Then relax on the terrace, cocktail in hand, while the fiery sun makes its dramatic exit and spreads its glow over the crater. Overnight at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Hotel: Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge, Ngorongoro, 4*

 

Day 5 - Monday, November 11, 2019
Ngorongoro Conservation Area / Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Serengeti lesbian safariAfter breakfast, drive to Serengeti National Park. Stop en route to visit Olduvai Gorge, where for more than 50 years the Leakey family has been uncovering fossils of humans and animals, including the fossil of Homo habilis (handy man), the first tool user, thought to have lived 1.75 million years ago. The area has yielded abundant specimens dating back at least two million years, including the remains of prehistoric elephants, giant horned sheep and enormous ostriches. With its vast rolling plains, flat-topped acacias and huge herds of animals, the Serengeti is just what you expect Africa to be. It is an amazing wildlife spectacle, with herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle covering the plains from horizon to horizon. The Serengeti is the first, largest and most famous of Tanzania's national parks. An estimated three million large animals inhabit 5,700 square miles, an area the size of Connecticut. Stop for a picnic lunch, and then continue on your game drive. Here, most ostrich and Grant's gazelle are semi-migratory. Topi, hartebeest, impala and African buffalo are resident woodland creatures. Giraffe browse alone or in small groups wherever they find trees and shrubs. Bohor reedbuck and waterbuck restrict themselves to the dense vegetation near watercourses. We may even see the end of the Wildebeest migration. You’ll arrive at the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti in the late afternoon. Nestled in the Central Serengeti for the best wildlife observation, Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti ensures your peace of mind with strategic fencing and an expert security team of local Maasai who are familiar with life in the Serengeti. Elevated wooden walkways keep you safely above the animals while providing a superior viewing perspective. Highlights include being able to take a dip in their infinity pool while watching over the watering hole where local wildlife frequent! All rooms are well appointed. This is luxury at its best while on Safari. Dinner and overnight at the Four Seasons Lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Hotel: Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Serengeti, 5*

 

Day 6 - Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Serengeti National Park, TanzaniaOn morning and afternoon game drives, explore the vast Serengeti in depth. The open woodland and plains are ideal places to observe large predators. Lions are plentiful, and spotted hyenas even more so. Golden jackals and bat-eared foxes are the most abundant canine species. Cheetahs are regularly sighted pacing the plains, and at dusk or dawn you stand the best chance of seeing nocturnal felines such as civet, serval, genet and African wildcat. The wealth and diversity of birds is just as staggering as the mammal population. Ostriches, secretary birds and bustards wander the plains; vultures and eagles are abundant; and the sunbirds, king fishers and bee-eaters are well-represented. Perhaps the most distinctive small bird is the lilac-breasted roller, an exquisitely coloured creature often seen perched on trees along the roadside. All meals and overnight at the Four Seasons Lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 - Wednesday, November 13, 2019
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania / Maasai Mara, Kenya
Kenya Lesbian Safari - Maasai MaraFollowing breakfast this morning, transfer to the airstrip for your private charter flight to the Maasai Mara, via a stop in Kisumu for customs and immigration formalities. Continue to the Maasai Mara. (Please note we may have to switch planes in Kisumu). Arrive in the late morning and transfer to your tented camp. This is the Africa of your imagination, where panoramas are vast. It is a country of rolling grasslands, dense thickets of scrub, groves of acacia woodland, and even luxuriant forest, which grows along the Mara River and its tributaries. The Maasai Mara is considered the finest game sanctuary in the country, home to an astonishing number and variety of animals. According to the season, hundreds of thousands of migratory wildebeest, gazelle and zebra move back and forth between the Mara, the plains and the woodlands to the south. You will have a short game drive en route to Governor’s Camp (Main), a luxury tented camp. Each tent is complete with a private bathroom and shower. After lunch and some free time, you will have an afternoon game drive. Dinner and overnight at the Governor's Tented Camp.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Hotel: Governors Camp, Maasai Mara, 4*

 

Day 8 - Thursday, November 14, 2019
Maasai Mara, Kenya
Masai Mara Hot Air Baloon SafariThe brilliant orange sun is up at 6:00 am, and so are you. As soon as you are ready, it's off into the bush. The dew is fast disappearing and the predators are on the prowl. Your driver sets off in pursuit of the great herds. This is true big game country, where prides of more than twenty lions, including the majestic black-maned male, are not uncommon. Other inhabitants of the Mara include elephant, giraffe, buffalo, cheetah, leopard, hyena, topi, gazelle and black rhino, and hippos can be found along the Mara River. This morning there are two wonderful optional excursions available (guests can only participate on one excursion). Pricing is TBA, but you will have an opportunity to sign-up prior to the trip:

Optional Hot Air Balloon Safari (participation limited): cost TBA
For the adventurous, a wonderful option is available today: You leave camp before dawn – the sky is clear, the air is brisk, and the conditions are perfect. As the sun rises over the Mara plain, your balloons lift off one after the other, and the scene takes on a party air as these bright splashes of colour rise into the blue. Watch as a stunning panorama unfolds below you, and the balloon's basket becomes your lookout post for a bird's-eye view of the beauty of Africa. Float silently just a few hundred feet above herds of wild animals. Gazelle and impala watch curiously with their tails flagging – a warning to others that you are approaching. A pride of lions stalks an unsuspecting herd of wildebeest. Giraffe poke their heads out of the forest where they have been nibbling tender leaves. The tranquillity of the experience is interrupted only by the occasional "whoosh" of the air heaters. You will go aloft with one of Africa's finest ballooning companies. Baskets of 12 – 18 and 20 seats are available. Their excellent professional pilots and ground crews assure your safety and pleasure both during the flight and at a celebratory champagne breakfast upon touch down in the middle of the bush. Return to the camp for lunch and a midday rest.

Kenya Lesbian Tour - Lake VictoriaOptional Flying Excursion to Lake Victoria (participation limited): Cost TBA
Leaving the Mara Plains, you fly over the Soit Ol'oololo Escarpment where much of the motion picture Out of Africa was filmed. Your flight path takes you over hundreds of Maasai villages, all of which can be clearly seen from the air. Proceeding west, you enjoy a panoramic view of the Kisii Highlands, one of Kenya's richest farmlands. From the air, you will see great expanses of sugar cane, tea, coffee and pyrethrum, seen as bright yellow patches from the air. Descending over Lake Victoria, you fly above Luo fishermen who take time out from their activities to wave to your low-flying aircraft. After a 40-minute flight, you touch down at Lake Victoria's Rusinga Island (or Mfangano Island) where you are welcomed by your hosts who introduce themselves as you sip coffee and tea at the lodge. After a leisurely familiarization of the island's activities – and the tremendous birdlife on the island -- you board your boats for a tour of the shoreline. You generally stay about thirty yards offshore, an excellent vantage point from which to view some of the more than 100 species of birdlife found here, and other fascinating animals including the rare, spotted-neck otter and the giant monitor lizard. As you view the shoreline and watch brightly-painted fishing boats out on the lake, fishing lines are cast to slow-troll for giant Nile perch. Due to an overabundance of Nile perch near Rusinga Island, everyone is virtually guaranteed to catch one big fish (or more) during the day. You will also have an opportunity to feed the magnificent osprey (fish eagle) that swoop alongside the craft to snatch the fish offered them by your boat pilot.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Hotel: Governors Camp, Maasai Mara, 4*

 

Day 9 - Friday, November 15, 2019
Maasai Mara, Kenya
Masai Mara bush dinnerToday you have a choice of a morning game drive or an optional Hot Air Balloon excursion. Return to Camp for lunch and enjoy a leisurely afternoon watching the hippos along the river, reading or napping. This afternoon, enjoy your final game drive of the week! On your final evening on safari, savour the romance of the African plains during a Bush Dinner.

Farewell Bush Dinner
A private and secluded area on the edge of the Mara River is set up for a farewell bush dinner. Hippo and crocodile grunt and splash in the muddy waters below. As the sun swiftly sinks, a glowing log fire illuminates the setting. Candles flicker in the darkness, throwing golden light on starched white tablecloths and bouquets of local wild flowers. After a delicious meal, you can retire to the crackling campfire. Quietly absorbing the peace and beauty of an African night, guests are in for treat. Long-limbed Maasai warriors will demonstrate traditional dances, their proud profiles and spearheads reflecting the amber light of the flames. Overnight at your deluxe tented camp.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Hotel: Governors Camp, Maasai Mara, 4*

 

Day 10 - Saturday, November 16, 2019
Maasai Mara / Nairobi, Kenya
AmericaShare, KenyaAfter breakfast enjoy a short morning game drive on the way to the air strip where you board your flight to Nairobi crossing the Great Rift Valley. You will be met at Wilson Airport in Nairobi and will enjoy lunch and have the opportunity for an optional visit to a project sponsored by AmericaShare. You are then transferred to the Fairmont Norfolk Hotel where a private dayroom has been reserved for you. (Dayrooms are available from 12 noon to 6 pm). Those opting not to go to the project will be transferred directly to the hotel. (Based on final flight times, order of visit may change.)

AmericaShare visit
As part of Olivia's Safari, you have an opportunity to connect personally with the people of an AmericaShare project and see firsthand how lives are changing. AmericaShare is the non-profit arm of Micato Safaris. Your excursion will take you to visit the community center, Harambee House, an oasis in the heart of the Mukuru slum. You can hear about the lives of the young people as well as laugh, play, and share photos and stories. Every interaction seems to bring a smile to the faces of the kids and to the Olivia travelers who visit them. Each guest is invited to take part in this visit, and many mark it as the highlight of their trip. Olivia will once again provide you with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the places we visit. You are encouraged to bring donations if you'd like. Clothing, school supplies, candy – anything is like gold to these kids. Perhaps you will even be motivated to sponsor a child for boarding school for a year. Don't worry about having to travel on safari with the donations. Olivia will arrange to have them stored at the hotel, then delivered to the AmericaShare location on the day of our visit.

After dinner at the hotel, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight home.

The voltage is 220, which is the same as in Europe. However, the plugs are shaped differently than in America and most parts of Europe. You will need 3-prong square adapters. As outlets sometimes vary, if you plan to operate electric appliances, we suggest you travel with a set of international adapter plugs as well as a voltage converter. Most camera battery and computer chargers have the 110/220 converters built in, but double check this. With the proper converters, you can easily re-charge your batteries in all of the accommodations on safari, including the tents. Please note that lodges in the game parks sometimes turn off their generators during the day, which means no electricity is available during that time.

Excursions
All Safari vehicle excursions are included in the cost of your trip. Normally there is a morning and an afternoon safari available. There will also be an optional Hot Air Balloon excursion and a trip to Lake Victoria that you may book at an additional cost. More information on this will be sent as we get closer to the trip dates

Gratuities
Gratuities, including your hotel staff (except for room service delivery), porter, driver/guide, hostesses and Safari Director are included. If you received exceptional service from someone, you are welcome to give an additional gratuity. If you take an optional excursion, you may want to tip your guide/driver.

Laundry and dry cleaning
Laundry, pressing and dry cleaning service is available at Nairobi Hotel. The Massai Mara Governors camp in Kenya includes free laundry services, and the Tanzanià camps have very minimal charges. No self-serve laundry is available. Ladies under-garments are not washed at the Massai Mara camp due to cultural reasons.

Medical services
We utilize the services of the Flying Doctor's Society, an elite, airborne medical unit. Should you require emergency medical assistance, they will be dispatched. If necessary, they evacuate travelers to Nairobi, where excellent medical facilities are available. Medical treatment is available for a fee.

Phone
Most lodges do not have readily available phones; in an emergency, you may be contacted through Micato Safaris offices in Nairobi. Complete information about this will be available in your trip guide, which will be emailed to you 3-4 weeks in advance of the trip.

Smoking policy
Please refrain from smoking in safari vehicles and other enclosed places where it may affect others.

Special Needs
If you have special medical or dietary needs, please advise us at the time of booking.
