Classic Kenya Highlights Safari
This seven day tour of Kenya includes all the classic safari highlights as well as a few lesser-known encounters alongside. Tailoring a tour to coincide with the spectacular wildebeest migration, during July and October, is one such way to ensure your experience gets off to the best possible start.
Witnessing a whole host of wildebeest, zebras and gazelle, crossing the Mara River and fending off crocodiles in the process, is simply a phenomenal sight and certainly not to be missed during peak season. Elsewhere in Kenya you’ll discover the Great Rift Valley where volcanic landscapes and hot thermal springs make a visit to the shores of Lake Bogoria another unforgettable highlight.
Of course, finding Lake Nakuru fringed by thousands of pink flamingos can really take some beating alongside the chance to spot Africa’s Big Five easing their thirst around the water’s edge
From views of Kilimanjaro during a couple of nights in Amboseli National Park to organic encounters with local Masai communities, who’ve lived and worked in Kenya all their life, this is your chance to tailor a tour of Africa in the most exciting and authentic way possible
