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.

Loved it! Our crew was fantastic...Leah, our Lead kept us organized and on schedule with good humour; our cook Reuben kept us well fed with tasty, satisfying meals prepared with great care and pride; Isa, our driver expertly manoeuvred the overland vehicle over all kinds of terrain ensuring we arrived at our destinations safely. They were warm, welcoming and gracious hosts who did everything they could to ensure we enjoyed our trip.

Being there during the migration meant that we got to see the "Big 5"! Our game driver, William was wonderful and his experience was invaluable.

The safari camps were great. Most had shower and toilet facilities, free wifi and a place to get a beverage after setting up camp.

The optional sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Maasai Mara followed by a champagne breakfast was worth every penny.

There were a lot of early mornings and long days but all worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

My only suggestion to enhance this package would be to offer optional upgraded accommodations for pre and post safari nights.

Many thanks to travel consultant Sam at OTG for his assistance in arranging this memorable vacation!”

I just wanted to write and say that Leah was an absolutely amazing Tour Guide. It seems she was born for this job - she is approachable, friendly, knowledgeable and has a laugh with the guests. The first day of our trip our truck broke down - she handled this with a cool head and had a solution in place almost immediately. Her approach to every aspect of the tour - timings, long days, the history and culture of both Kenya and Tanzania, was without fault. She is an extremely valuable asset to your organisation and I am grateful to have shared my African safari with her. ”

I was one of 6 people that travelled 57 days on the Great African Expedition from Nairobi, Kenya to Capetown, South Africa.

What an absolutely fantastic trip, from day 1 to the end. We saw the "big 5" multiple times and met some lovely people along the way.

I've got nothing but high praise for our Group Leader, Hes, similarly, Malinga, our cook, was a terrific guy that kept us well fed in sometimes difficult circumstances. Finally, Steve, our driver, was exceptional and kept us safe all the way.

Overall, I had a Fantastic time.

I was the oldest guy on the the truck and had an unbelievably incredible time.”

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.
