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.

Home to Africa's Big 5, a surprising diversity of natural habitats from jagged peaks to pristine coastal beaches, and endless grassy savannah where colourful tribes carve out a traditional way of life, Kenya is a richly-rewarding safari destination. Kenya has an excellent selection of world-known national parks from Lake Nakuru where pink flamingos congregate on the waters edge, to Amboseli where on a clear day the iconic Mt. Kilimanjaro in neighbouring Tanzania looms large.

Perhaps one of the best known parks is the Masai Mara, which plays host to one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles - the Great Migration when millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle make their way south following the rains. It's here you'll also find the jumping Masai tribes who follow their own migration pattern living in harmony with their surroundings.

Experience Kenya on an overland camping expedition or for something more comfortable, consider one of our small lodge-accommodated safaris or tailor your dream safari adventure visiting Kenya's top destinations.

Kenya tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.71 out of 5 based on 35 recent reviews — See All Kenya Reviews

Wildlife was amazing, great time though we won’t miss the long travel days on the truck. Campsites were good, equipment was good. Good range of optional activities. Food was good, thanks to our chef Wyclef. Our guide Hesbon was extremely patient and accommodating to many demands. Highly recommended, our group size of 13 was great, more would have felt cramped given time in transit.”  

Michelle Chen • Submitted 10 Jul 2019

We had a marvellous time with our guide, cook and driver. We formed a lasting bond. I found Chris to be very very knowledgeable and always on top of everything we needed to do during our tour. He helped us out even before being asked and was full of fun and joined in our games and music and stories and laughter.

This is my second trip with On the Go tours and both have been fabulous. ”  

Shauna Lorincz • Submitted 25 May 2019

Excellent valued tour for people who have the time and prepared to rough it a bit to have a great experience.Guides were very knowledgeable and terrific to learn from. Cook and driver also had many tour years of knowledge. We were the oldest (63yrs) but still had a fun time and always felt looked after and safe.”

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.
