Go in search of the Big 5 and meet Masai warriors with our range of camping and lodge safari tours and tailor-made safari holidays to Kenya.

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.

An amazing journey though Africa over 57 days. Great sights and experiences, On The Go Tours have put together a fantastic trip. You’ll see the best Africa has to offer and have a chance at one in a lifetime experiences. The different crew members over these legs made the trip even more memorable in particular our last leader Onary. Our cooks kept us well fed including some delicous local dishes. If you have the time do this trip. ”

I am at a loss for words on how incredible this trip was! It was a lifelong dream for me to go to Africa, and I'm so mad a myself for putting it off as long as I did! From accomodations, to food, to transportation, and especially my guide, this trip was beyond my expectations. I am looking forward to where On The Go will take me on my next adventure!!!!!”  

Karen Patroluk • Submitted 3 Dec 2017

Very friendly, approachable, humorous, and helpful. He was knowledgeable about the country and we learnt a lot about history and culture. Would definitely recommend Frederick, Peter and Saris as the dream team. Anyone that gets them will be well looked after.”

A Year-Round Destination
Safari opportunities abound

Kenya is a fantastic safari destination at any time of year with world-famous national parks home to an incredible array of wildlife and brief wet seasons. The Masai Mara is home to the Big 5 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 good wildlife viewing thanks to thinner crowds and a steady animal population in other national parks.

Kenya Map

Recommended Places to Visit in Kenya

With scenery that perfectly captures the essence of Africa and a host of national parks and wildlife reserves offering phenomenal safari opportunities as well as a glimpse of traditional tribal cultures, Kenya has plenty of places to recommend and here's a few of our favourites.

Masai Mara - Wildlife and culture

View on map
Masai Mara | Kenya | Africa

The rolling grasslands, flat-topped acacia trees and healthy population of the Big 5 make Masai Mara the perfect safari destination and one of Kenya's most popular national parks. Add to this the red-robed Masai tribes that carve out a traditional rural way of life in villages dotted throughout the reserve and you have a compelling destination that will keep you coming back for more.

Lake Nakuru - Flamingo and rhino

Lake Nakuru NP | Kenya | Africa

Situated in the Rift Valley of Kenya, the popular Lake Nakuru National Park is one of the best places to spot white and black rhino. The park is also famous for the large concentration of flamingo that feed on the algae found in abundance in the soda lake of Nakuru and make for a stunning image of pink against the blue waters. The light acacia forest surrounding the lake makes this a particularly scenic spot also.

Samburu National Reserve - Wildlife galore

Gerunuk | Samburu National Park | Kenya

Stretching out beneath Mount Kenya, the dry grasslands of Samburu National Reserve are home to a staggering number and variety of species from zebra to giraffe, lion to cheetah, as well as a surprising natural beauty that ranges from palm groves to riverine forest. With an area of just 300 sq km, Samburu may be small but it certainly packs a hefty punch.

Amboseli National Park - Mt Kilimanjaro views

View on map
Amboseli National Park | Kenya | Africa

Bordering Tanzania to the south, Amboseli National Park is one of Kenya's premier safari destinations with hundreds of large-tusked elephants roaming the plains. What makes this scene even more appealing is the sight of the looming, snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain. It's also a good place to visit Masai villages and see giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and lion.

Tsavo National Park - East and West

View on map
Tsavo National Park | Kenya | Africa

Divided into an East and West section, the Tsavo National Park is Kenya's largest wildlife reserves with the country's largest river running through it. The contrast of scenery is quite something with lush greenery and endless grasslands home to a vast number of animals including lion, cheetah, hyena and ostrich. The West section is the most visited of the two though the East section is growing increasingly popular.
