Windsor Golf and Country Club.
You will be met at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport
by a AfriChoice! Tours & Travel representative and
escorted to your hotel, the Windsor Golf and Country Club.
The drive from the airport will take about half an hour,
passing first along the main Mombasa road into Nairobi,
bordered on one side by the city's industrial area and
on the other by the famous Nairobi National Park and Ngong
Hills. Surprisingly soon after leaving the city centre
you enter a well forested residential area before emerging
on to the approach to the club. Beautifully designed in
a country setting, the Windsor Golf and Country Club has
to be seen to be believed. You will spend the next 3 nights
'teeing' here. Windsor Golf and Country Club (Bed &
Day 2: Golf at the Windsor Golf
and Country Club.
The latest addition to Kenya's golfing scene, Windsor
Golf and Country Club is without doubt the most spectacular,
and the ideal course on which to play your first round
of golf. The 18-hole championship course was designed
to international standard by Tom Macauley. Apart from
its picturesque setting and meticulously maintained playing
surface, the total length of 7,400 yards, a water surrounded
18th green and several other spectacular holes, make this
a challenging course for golfers of all standards. Situated
in nearly 600 acres of indigenous forest, the club and
course occupy only 200 acres. A heated pool, squash and
tennis courts, a driving range, bird watching (over 200
species have been recorded in the grounds) and a health
club are all on offer to keep you occupied before or after
golf. Windsor Golf and Country Club (Bed & Breakfast.
Day 3: Sigona Golf Club.
Sigona Golf Club requires a 40 minute drive from your
hotel, but it is certainly a worthwhile journey as the
scenic location of the course more than compensates for
half an hour in the car. In recent years, the popularity
of golf in Kenya has blossomed and Sigona is one of several
clubs to have benefited. Extensive improvements to the
Club house and a delightfully situated course have brought
Sigona into the major league of Kenyan golfers. Windsor

Day 4: Aberdare Country Club.
After a leisurely breakfast, it is time to depart for
the Aberdare Country Club - a two hour drive away. The
journey is a scenic one, passing through fertile land
on which sisal, pineapples and it is claimed, some of
the world's best coffee are grown. At one point, the road
crosses Kenya's premier river, the Tana, the descent to
which affords breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside
and, on a clear day, the snow-capped Mount Kenya. About
20 km from your destination you will pass through the
pleasant town of Nyeri, which apart from being the provincial
headquarters, also has its own golf course. The founder
of the scouting movement, Lord Baden-Powell, spent the
last few years of his life here from 1938 - 1941 and is
buried in the local church yard. After checking into the
Aberdare Country Club, a sumptuous buffet lunch, famous
throughout Kenya, awaits you. Over the next two days you
can be as active or as relaxed as you wish. The club has
a quality and challenging 9-hole golf course with some
of the holes commanding wonderful views of Mount Kenya.
The club is set on a 1,000 acre property, much of which
is given over to a game sanctuary where you can walk or
ride from the resident stables. Two tennis courts, a swimming
pool, a trout stream and even gliding from a local airfield
are all activities on offer to keep you from the golf
course. Cottage style accommodation with fireplaces and
private bathrooms and the superb cuisine and service will
ensure you enjoy your stay. Aberdare Country Club (Full
Day 5: Aberdare Country Club.
Morning at leisure with an option to visit to the Ark
in the Aberdare National Park. After lunch at the Aberdare
Country Club, a 20 minute drive into the forest will bring
you to the Ark, a well appointed forest lodge overlooking
a waterhole. Elephant, rhino, cape buffalo, giant forest
hog, antelope, leopard, lion and even the rare bongo all
frequent the water-hole and, with luck, can be seen through
the night caught in the Ark's floodlights. Alternatively,
you can remain at the Aberdare Country Club and play a
round of golf at the 9-hole Nyeri Golf Club. Aberdare
Country Club (Full Board)
Day 6: Muthaiga Golf Club.
A two hour drive will bring you back to the outskirts
of Nairobi in time for an early lunch at Safari Park Hotel
where you will spend the next two nights. A new and spectacular
development, the Safari Park Hotel boasts 7 restaurants,
a casino, a huge swimming pool with waterslide, tennis
courts and major other attractions. You are scheduled
for an afternoon of golf at the famous Muthaiga Golf Club
a 10 minute drive from your hotel. The beautifully designed
18-hole course is home to the Kenya Open Golf Championship,
which annually sees an array of international golf stars
compete for the winner's purse and a hole in one offer
of a Mercedes Benz. Safari Park Hotel & Casino (Bed
Day 7: Royal Nairobi Golf Club.
Nairobi must be unique amongst the world's leading cities
as within a 2 mile radius of the very centre of the city
two golf courses can be found. The better of these courses,
the Royal Nairobi, was established in 1906, making it
Kenya's oldest club. The pleasant 18-hole course has a
yardage of 7150 yds., and over recent years has undergone
a major face-lift making it a delight to play. The club
house, pro shop and restaurant have all been refurbished
helping Royal to become one of Kenya's leading clubs.

Day 8: Masai Mara Game Reserve.
Your two night wildlife safari to the Masai Mara will
undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your trip to Kenya.
Fly to Masai Mara Game Reserve. The Masai Mara, a 600
square mile area of wilderness given over to the animals
that have made Kenya famous, is one of the greatest wildlife
spectacles on earth. Over the next two and a half days,
you will go in search of elephant, lion, leopard, zebra,
wildebeest, hippo and a host of other animals and birds.
Using your luxury lodge camp as a base and in the safe
hands of an expert driver/game spotter, your early morning
and afternoon game drives will be experiences never to
be forgotten. Well-appointed en-suite luxury accommodation,
excellent cuisine and swimming pool will all ensure the
best of both comfort and excitement. We fly in a light
aircraft. Mara Serena Safari Lodge (Full Board)
Day 9: Masai Mara Game Reserve
One option worth considering is a hot air balloon flight
as the sun rises over the African plains. After floating
over the most breathtaking scenery, with a bird's eye
view of the animals, you will land for a full champagne
breakfast before a game drive takes you back to the lodge.

Day 10: Return Nairobi, Windsor
Golf and Country Club
Fly back to Nairobi and the Windsor Golf and Country Club
will give you ample time to reflect on the wonders of
the Masai Mara and the wildlife that has made it famous.
After checking in, the remainder of the day is free to
relax or prepare for your final three days of golf on
the practice range. You will stay here for your last 4
nights. Windsor Golf and Country Club (Bed & Breakfast)
Day 11: Karen Country Club.
Following a hearty Kenya breakfast, a half hour drive
will bring you to the delightful Karen Country Club. Karen
is a plush residential suburb of large houses and mature
gardens made famous by its early settler residents. Karen
Blixen, after whom the area was named, had a farm here
and her old house is now a museum in her memory. The Ngong
Hills of "Out of Africa" fame can be seen clearly
from Karen Country Club which is arguably the finest club
in the country. Following a fire which destroyed the club
house many years ago, a massive refurbishment and development
of the entire premises was undertaken resulting in the
outstanding and tasteful facilities which exist today.
The beautiful and superbly maintained 18-hole course owes
much to the magnificence of the indigenous trees found
throughout its lengths. Apart from the excellent golf,
Duncan Lindscott, the club's renowned professional runs
the country's best stocked pro-shop on the premises. Windsor
Golf and Country Club (Bed & Breakfast)
12: Limuru Country Club.
A forty minute drive to the highlands above Nairobi brings
you to Limuru. The area is fertile and scenic and will
give you the opportunity of seeing at first hand both
tea and coffee growing in plantations on either side of
the road. The golf course is a delight, as is the old
club house, with a log fire constantly burning in the
hearth. Lush, green fairways contrast with the rarefied
atmosphere of nearly 8,000 feet above sea level making
the golf both challenging and rewarding. An option worth
considering in Limuru is a lunch visit to old Mrs. Mitchell's
farm house. Apart from her legendary home cooking, Mrs.
Mitchell herself conducts a tour of the tea and woods
on the farm. Windsor Golf and Country Club
13: Windsor Golf and Country Club.
Your final round of golf is just outside your back door.
There is no better course on which to end your golfing
safari to Kenya, so save your best round of the trip for
one of the best courses in Africa. The remainder of the
day is your own. Windsor Golf and Country Club (Bed &
