Enasoit offers exclusive game viewing and safari indulgence in one of Kenya’s most visually tantalising areas, whilst the Alfajiri Villas provide a private beach experience beside the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Combine these two properties for a wonderful Kenya holiday – perfect for multigenerational groups.

  • Have exclusive use of the fantastic Enasoit Game Sanctuary and its beautiful camp
  • Travel with ease and comfort, taking private charter flights within Kenya
  • Track lions, spot birds and take horseback safaris amidst the Laikipian wilderness
  • Snorkel, swim and relax from the comfort of the Alfajiri Garden Villa

ENASOIT

A haven for game watching and wonderfully private, flexible and secluded in its exclusive nature, Enasoit offers a very different safari experience. Begin this journey here, arriving from Nairobi by private charter, and stay in the beautifully situated private camp. A nearby waterhole and salt lick means that wildlife is never far away, with subtle lighting allowing for unparalleled nocturnal sightings.

The emphasis at Enasoit is on relaxation, comfort and flexibility. Each member of the group is free to do as little or as much as they desire. Game drives operate during daylight or at night, whilst bushwalks offer a closer-to-the-ground safari experience. The game here is wonderful, with the resident lions a particular highlight. Spend time tracking these beautiful predators, hoping to be lucky enough to see the pride make a kill.

For those who wish to spend some time relaxing in camp, the separate pool house offers a retreat away from the main camp. Situated beside a rocky outcrop, this garden-encircled pool sits beside a pair of thatched cottages, which can also provide accommodation for larger family groups. After a swim in the pool, receive a massage from the on-site masseuse, whose services are included for the duration of the stay.

ALFAJIRI

Leave Laikipia behind, taking another private charter flight to Diani Beach on the Kenyan coast. Here, a beautiful collection of private villas dot this idyllic Indian-Ocean coastline. Stay in the wonderfully spacious Garden Villa, which is ideal for large groups or extended families.

Spend time relaxing in this beautiful, desert-island location. Unspoilt beaches, palm trees and weather-beaten dhows complete the scene, providing a wonderful backdrop against which to swim, snorkel and sunbathe. Snorkelling trips are led by local fisherman, using traditional fishing dhows. Venture off shore and dive amongst the colourful, animated marine life of the Indian Ocean.

Whilst relaxation is key at this indulgent villa, the location offers many options for the more actively inclined. At an additional cost, kite surfing, scuba diving and horse riding can all be arranged. The trip finishes with a final private charter flight back to Nairobi, timed to coincide with the departing international flights.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Exclusivity and flexibility are of paramount importance during this trip. Ideally suited for larger, multigenerational groups, this journey offers a wonderful – sociable yet private – safari and beach experience. Enasoit provides fantastic game viewing tailored to fit each member of the family, whilst the Alfajiri Garden Villa acts as an incredible, indulgent base for exploration and relaxation.

Price is based on a group of eight adults, travelling together.

Stretching from the rim of the Great Rift Valley to Mount Kenya, the Laikipia Plateau offers a truly great safari experience for those who want to get away from the crowds and into a remote and untouched slice of Africa. From desert plains to the wild shores of Lake Turkana, the area has a wide range of landscapes from high plains to low forested valleys. Home to more endangered species than anywhere else in East Africa, this is the place to see African wild dog and enjoy a rugged and dramatic wilderness experience.

Activities at Enasoit
The exclusive, personalised nature of the lodge means that each day's activities are completely flexible; each member of the group can do as much or as little as they want. The beautiful Laikipian landscape and included massage treatments mean that total relaxation is an inviting option.

However, the game is also fantastic. With the entire Enasoit reserve open for exploration, the options are endless. Set out on guided game walks, as well as day or night drives. Bush picnics and sundowners can be arranged in the most stunning locales, whilst horse riding offers game viewing from a very different perspective. The beautiful cedar forests of the Laikipian Highlands are home to a variety of birdlife, meaning that fantastic birding excursions are also possible.

The Kenyan Coast boasts beaches with the warm, inviting waters of the Indian Ocean, soft sand and a welcoming sea breeze. Coral reefs are protected by offshore marine parks, and a variety of water based activities are on offer.

Activities at Alfajiri
The tranquil allure of the Kenyan coast means that many prefer to simply relax beside the warm, azure water of the Indian Ocean. However, for those who wish to explore beneath the waves, snorkelling excursions are available, led by local fisherman in a traditional, small dhow.

After time swimming amongst the colourful marine life, have the choice of a massage or trip to a nearby sauna or steam bath. For exploration of the surrounding area and beaches, each villa comes with a vehicle and driver at its guests' disposal.
