Kenya’s rich wildlife and immense landscapes are, quite simply, iconic. The oft-pictured imagery of an African safari comes to life as you traverse the sprawling plains of the Maasai Mara or drive in the legendary shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro. The country’s prolific wildlife offers incomparable opportunities to observe these magnificent creatures up close in their natural habitats. Through our Kenyan partners, we work with some of the country’s top guides to ensure that each Kenyan safari experience incorporates as much learning as it does observing. In customized open-top 4x4s, these guides will take you to some of Kenya’s most remote and untouched corners, providing you with intimate wildlife encounters that you’ll often have all to yourself.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve:
When asked to imagine an African safari, you’ll probably picture the plains of the Maasai Mara without even realizing it. Flat-topped acacia trees dot vast, rolling grasslands covered with thousands of grazing animals. The Great Wildebeest Migration: Going hand in hand with the Maasai Mara is inevitably the ‘Great Wildebeest Migration’. Heralded as one of the Earth’s most remarkable natural spectacles, this perpetual procession of 1.5 million wildebeest, zebras and antelopes is nearly impossible to describe.
The Big Five:
Game drives across Kenya’s national parks and reserves inevitably reveal the spectacular and mighty creatures that make up the ‘Big Five’: buffalo, lion, leopard, elephant and rhinoceros. Early hunters coined this term, after deciding that these species were the most difficult and dangerous to hunt.
Amboseli National Park:
Among Kenya’s legendary landscapes, few stand taller than Amboseli National Park, where impressive herds of the country’s largest elephants roam freely against the mighty snow-dome of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Authentic Maasai Village Tours:
Kenya’s brightly clad and intricately adorned Maasai warriors are among the continent’s – and the world’s – most recognizable indigenous tribes.
