Explore Kenya

An 8 Day Private Safari Across Kenya

The perfect introduction to Kenya! On this 8 day/7-night safari, you'll explore the highlights of Kenya's northern parks, each with strikingly diverse landscapes and wildlife. Your journey begins with an exploration of some of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley lakes, including Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru. Enjoy a boat ride, hiking, and game drives as you search for abundant birdlife and for the 50+ mammal species including, hippo, rhino, giraffe, and buffalo.

You'll also hike through the Gaitamaiyo and Eburru Forests, some of the last remaining tracts of Kenya's ancient forests, searching for rare birds, chameleons, and forest mammals.

From the lakes region you’ll head south to one of the best wildlife parks in Africa - the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The acacia-dotted plains of the Mara teeming with wildlife is classic Africa. Spend your days here exploring the grasslands in search of lion prides, herds of elephant, gazelles, giraffe and other wildlife.

This is a privately guided safari and is led by a professional, licensed, English speaking guide. Your guide is knowledgeable in all things Africa, from mammals and birds, to conservation, ecology, and Kenyan culture.
