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.

Our Guide was very informative and told us a lot about life there, especially as a woman. She also introduced us to locals in Kenya as well as Tanzania and we had the opportunity to spend time with them in multiple places. She was always helpful and made sure everything was taken care of.

The tour itself was great, too. Great places to visit (Masai Mara was a highlight, also Musoma and Ngorogoro and Lake Nakuru), great food, all in all an amazing tour with a great group of people.

Thanks for all the help before the tour though l had an amazing time all in all. ”

Had an absolutely fantastic time in the Masai Mara yesterday, we even got stuck crossing a river which was amazing. Took me back to My childhood in Zimbabwe! What a great adventure to be involved in getting the vehicles out and spending time standing along the river in the Mara. We managed to see all the cats except a leopard and the rest of the big five except the rhino which were expected. Thank you to the On the Go Tours, guide, driver, cook and the Masai driven jeeps it was truly a great adventure and the best memory, once again thank you to the team for a fantastic adventure.”  

Dale Grobler • Submitted 13 Oct 2018

This tour was fantastic. There are long days of driving. I found the trek challenging although we had one of the longer treks but totally worth it. Our crew of Mwongi, Nick and Jarod could not have been better. I definitely would recommend this trip. ”

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.

Highlights of our Kenya safaris

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 highlights here's a few you'll find on our safari adventures.

Masai Mara

The grassy plains of the Masai Mara in Kenya are often crowded with zebra and wildebeest

Meet the red-robed Masai warriors and go in search of the Big 5 with game drives across the grassy plains of the Masai Mara with departures throughout the famed Great Wildebeest Migration.

Lake Nakuru

Bird's eye view of Lake Nakuru in Kenya which is one of the highlights of our Kenya safaris

Visit one of Africa's best places to spot white and black rhino with game drives in Lake Nakuru National Park taking you to the shores of the soda lake home to large concentrations of flamingo.

Amboseli National Park

Mt Kilimanjaro looms over the landscapes of Amboseli National Park where herds of elephant roam

Marvel at the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain, towering over landscapes filled with hundreds of large-tusked elephants as well as giraffe, zebra and lion.

Samburu National Reserve

Gerunuk | Samburu National Park | Kenya
