Find the Big Give and meet Masai warriors with our range of camping and lodge safari tours and tailor-made safari holidays to Kenya.
For many, the image of a solitary acacia tree set against the perfectly flat horizon of endless grassy plains punctuated by lumbering elephants and grazing zebras is the quintessential image of Africa and it's what you'll discover in Kenya, a richly-rewarding safari destination. Kenya is a land of surprisingly dramatic geography from the ragged mountain peaks of the Great Rift Valley to the palm-fringed white sand beaches along the Indian Ocean with a great many natural habitats in-between, home to some of the continents best loved animals.Read More
In Kenya you'll see the Great Migration when millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle make the perilous journey south to neighbouring Tanzania following the rains for greener pastures. Kenya is also home to one of Africa's most well-known tribal peoples, the colourful Masai who continue to carve out a traditional way of life.

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”
We have traveled 2 Africa twice with On the Go Tours and totally enjoyed the experience both times , we had great food and great leaders”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Group sizes tend to be a little larger on our Overlanding tours (with an average of 24), providing a social and fun travel experience with like-minded travellers.
