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.

This trip was a million times more incredible than I ever imagined. We traveled with and the crew on our trip were just amazing and thanks to our wonderful chef. They put together a seamless, stress-free journey with great food and many laughs. The truck was incredibly well equipped, the tents were lovely and spacious, and the bed rolls were surprisingly comfortable. We didn't feel the need to upgrade our accommodation at any of the campsites.

This trip covered all the highlights with multiple game drives and plenty of opportunity to view the African wildlife. Camping in the National Parks was an absolute highlight. We also had opportunities to visit local villages in Tanzania and Malawi. Zanzibar was just wonderful and felt like a holiday inside a holiday. What a stunning destination with white sand beaches, warm Indian ocean and a tonne of history. There are some long driving days, but that was absolutely required to cover the distance that we did. They provided a welcome opportunity to rest and admire the stunning landscapes. My only complaint is that I couldn't have stayed on this trip for longer!”

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”

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

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

Samburu National Reserve

Gerunuk | Samburu National Park | Kenya

Watch out for the unique Grevy’s zebra or Beisa Oryx on game drives through the dry grasslands of the Samburu National Reserve, home to a staggering number and variety of species.
