Kenya Safaris and Tours

Find the Big Give and meet Masai warriors with our range of camping and lodge safari tours and tailor-made safari holidays to Kenya.

Kenya is spectacular. The Great Rift Valley. Mighty Mt Kenya. Masia Mara's stunning savannah plains. Lake Nakuru and its flock of pink flamingos. A pristine Indian Ocean coast. Kenya’s premier game reserve, the Masai Mara - gets its name from the Masai tribes people and the Mara River which divides it. Famous for its remarkable population of game, the annual Great Migration of the wildebeest between August and October each year provides fascination. The Masai Mara is perhaps most famous for its lions, though all the other members of the Big Five roam the reserve too.

This trip was a million times more incredible than I ever imagined. We traveled with and the crew on our trip were just amazing and thanks to our wonderful chef. They put together a seamless, stress-free journey with great food and many laughs. The truck was incredibly well equipped, the tents were lovely and spacious, and the bed rolls were surprisingly comfortable. We didn't feel the need to upgrade our accommodation at any of the campsites.

This trip covered all the highlights with multiple game drives and plenty of opportunity to view the African wildlife. Camping in the National Parks was an absolute highlight. We also had opportunities to visit local villages in Tanzania and Malawi. Zanzibar was just wonderful and felt like a holiday inside a holiday. What a stunning destination with white sand beaches, warm Indian ocean and a tonne of history. There are some long driving days, but that was absolutely required to cover the distance that we did. They provided a welcome opportunity to rest and admire the stunning landscapes. My only complaint is that I couldn't have stayed on this trip for longer!”

Literally the most amazing experience of my life, joined 2 tours across the the experience and both were unreal. The crew on the trucks are absolutely fantastic, really knowledgeable guide, wonderful cook and a safe and accurate driver. More importantly they encouraged the group to create such a family unit that my friend and I both cried all the way to the airport because we had to leave them. The experience itself was an amazing mix of beaches, wildlife and falls and the itinerary provided was absolutely correct. Would recommend this trip to anyone and I certainly will be using on the go in the future”

A Year-Round Destination
Safari opportunities abound

Kenya is a fantastic safari destination at any time of year with world-famous national parks boasting a incredible array of wildlife and brief wet seasons. The Masai Mara is home to the Big Five and witnesses the Great Migration that follows a year-long cycle. So there's always something of interest taking place on the savanna. Even when the rains come there's still strong wildlife viewing thanks to thinner crowds and a steady animal population in other national parks.

Highlights of our Kenya safaris

With scenery that perfectly captures the essence of Africa and a host of national parks and wildlife reserves presenting phenomenal safari opportunities and a glimpse of traditional tribal cultures, Kenya some superb highlights that you'll find on our safari adventures.
