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.

After many centuries of close relations between Kenya and the UK, the Land of the Masai continues to draw British travellers with magnificent savannah home to large herds of wild beasts and the comfort of a shared language and culture. From the dramatic landscape of the Great Rift Valley to the vast grassy plains, the jagged mountain peaks to the pristine coastal beaches, Kenya is a land of surprising contrast and forms the quintessential image of Africa for many people.

Kenya is also home, in part, to one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles - the annual Great Migration when thousands of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle make their way to greener pastures. Bringing life to these landscapes is one of Africa's best known peoples, the colourful Masai tribes that maintain ancient traditions and live in harmony with nature. Whether it's the land, the animals or the people, Kenya is bound to stir the soul.

Join us in Kenya on one of our overland camping safaris or for those looking for a more comfortable experience, consider one of our small lodge-accommodated safaris or tailor your dream safari adventure visiting Kenya's top destinations.

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.”  

Stephen Leggett • Submitted 18 Apr 2019

The tour overall is fantastic. It is a great way to have once in a lifetime experiences and see fabulous sights.

However, there are numerous early starts and long days in the truck that are not reflected by the trip notes. There are often times when the group want to stop and see more of the country through which we are travelling but this is not possible due to time and distance constraints.

The tour team were fantastic A little bit more advance notice and information would have been useful though”

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

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