This Kenyan safari will have your trace a route from Nairobi, up to the northern part of the country, before tracking back down Kenya and towards the iconic Masai Mara. As you traverse the landscape you will take in the Great African Rift Valley, with volcanic lakes, fertile grasslands, and parks filled with some of the most stunning wildlife on the planet.

Your week adventuring across Kenya on safari will give you chance to see the big five of African wildlife:

  • Lions
  • Elephants
  • Buffalo
  • Rhinos
  • Leopards

Along with many more creatures that encapsulate your dreams of African wildlife.

Your tour with us is private, and your dedicated Kenyan safari guide will work only with you and your group throughout the safari. Since this is your own personal tour, you can choose options such as domestic flights between parks to reduce travel times, although this will attract additional fees. Your can request to complete the itinerary in reverse and you can substitute your visit to Aberdares with a trip to Ol Pejeta Conservancy instead.
