Additional Information
When you think about safaris you first think of Kenya – the home of the African safari. Kenya is an amazing land, rich in wildlife and culture. We have game parks filled with an incredible variety of animals ranging from the more than a million and a half wildebeest that visit the Masai Mara during the annual migration to the hippos of Samburu. Let our Kenya Adventure Safari – Samburu, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara take you there. The romance of an African safari was born in Kenya. Nairobi today is a colorful tapestry woven with many ethnic groups, modern and colonial buildings, sleek Mercedes and dusty donkey carts. Here weary travelers can stretch out the kinks of air travel and replenish energies in anticipation of the safari. Continue overland to the edge of Kenya’s arid northern reaches to Samburu… home to all the ‘big ones’ as well as some peculiar and rare species. The colorfully clad tribes people live the same lifestyle as their forbears and are endlessly eager to mingle with foreigners who visit their ancestral lands. kenya-adventureTravel onto Lake Nakuru for overnight and then continue to the Masai Mara, Kenya’s most spectacular game park. The wildlife is here aplenty: lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, rhino… and daily safaris reward with close-up encounters. Here you can hop aboard a hot air balloon, in the soft hours of dawn, and marvel at the birds-eye view of the rolling savannah. Our safaris by road travel in modern 7 passenger 4 x 4 safari vehicles, with only a maximum of 7 passengers in a vehicle to ensure that everyone enjoys a window seat.
