Kenya Safari Tours
Kenya boasts the most spectacular stretch of the Great Rift Valley, mighty Mt Kenya and the stunning savannah plains of the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru with its flock of pink flamingos and a pristine Indian Ocean coast.
An undoubted highlight is Kenya’s premier game reserve, the Masai Mara. Earning its name from the Masai tribes people and the Mara River which divides it, the reserve is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual Great Migration of the wildebeest between August and October each year. The Masai Mara is perhaps most famous for its lions, though all the other members of the Big 5 roam the reserve too.
Kenya is a classic African destination, with wonderful safari opportunities and we offer a number of travel styles from adventurous overland style camping trips to lodge accommodated small group safaris as well as tailor made holidays.
Book any Overland Camping Safari as a group of 4 and you will each receive 7% off. Or take advantage of our early bird discount - book any Overland Camping Safari of 11 days or more, 6 months in advance and receive 5% off. Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer and excludes our Mt Kilimanjaro Climb.
Our overland safaris in Kenya cover some of Africa’s finest national parks including the Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru. All our overland safaris are led by an experienced and passionate crew of three - a tour leader, driver and cook who have travelled extensively throughout the region and have the first-hand knowledge and skills to ensure you have a memorable and hassle-free holiday. Our tours include an airport arrival transfer, many of your meals, game drives, camping equipment and guiding - and at the end of your adventure you're bound to find yourself sharing tales of your travels over a cool Tusker beer with fellow travellers in Nairobi.
Our accommodated safaris are ideal if you prefer to tour in comfort with 3-4 star standard lodges, hotels and tented chalets used throughout and road travel undertaken by private European-standard vehicles. Group sizes are small with a maximum of 6 travellers and our experienced local guides accompany you from day 1. Discover the Big 5 and see the very best of Kenya or combine with a trip to neighbouring Tanzania.
Kenya Private Safaris
If you would like to experience Kenya at a more leisurely pace, fancy a little luxury or prefer not to travel in a group on a date of your choosing, our private safaris are just the answer. Visit Kenya's wildlife-rich national parks or head to Tanzania next door and visit the incredible Serengeti.
Explore Nairobi's sites and beyond with our selection of day tours - visit the intriguing National Museum and Snake Park, amble through vibrant local markets, visit the lovable elephant calves at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and feed the gentle giants at the Giraffe Centre.
