11 Days Best Of Kenya Safaris

#
Package Description

Created especially for wildlife enthusiasts and lovers of the outdoors, this exceptional adventure touches on at Kenya’s most scenic and wildlife-rich national parks. Delve deeper into the African bush on the wide open plains of the Laikipia Plateau with an adventure that breaks away from the traditional, such as a camel or horseback safari. Kenya’s most famous safari destination, the Masai Mara, is the iconic finale to your adventure. Enjoy picturesque landscapes filled with rolling hills where crimson-clad Maasai warriors tend their herds among vast numbers of resident wildlife, including the thronging herds of Africa’s most famous animal spectacle, the Great Wildebeest Migration.

Highlights
  • Spoil yourself with a hot air balloon safari during your stay— the experience of floating almost silently of the Mara should not be missed!
  • Add to your Kenyan adventure by hopping across the border to northern Tanzania. Chat to our travel experts about the various accommodation and adventure options.
