The world-famous Masai Mara is one of Kenya's most popular national parks home to the Big 5 and the red-robed Masai tribes that continue to carve out a traditional rural way of life. It's here where you'll also see the spectacle of the Great Migration. At the incredibly scenic Lake Nakuru thousands of pink flamingos line the shoreline and the national park also boasts one of Kenya's largest concentration of black rhino. For those looking for water-based adventure, head to the coast for pristine white sand beaches, swaying palms and marine parks encompassing colourful coral reefs and diverse sea creatures.

Experience Kenya on one of our overland camping expeditions or for added comfort and luxury, consider one of our small lodge-accommodated safaris or tailor your dream safari adventure visiting Kenya's top destinations.

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”

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. ”

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.

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 Five with game drives across the grassy plains of the Masai Mara, with departures running throughout the famed Great Wildebeest Migration.

Lake Nakuru

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. It towers over landscapes filled with hundreds of large-tusked elephants as well as giraffe, zebra and lion.

Samburu National Reserve
