African Safari

Sample itinerary 1 Samburu - Lake Naivasha - Mara

Rugged and remote, Samburu Wildlife Reserve provides some of the best and most colorful game viewing in the country. A true wilderness, this area of Kenya is sparsely populated and game patterns have been little affected by humans. Samburu Reserve contains wildlife species rarely found elsewhere. These include what is called the “Samburu Five” – the Somali Ostrich, gerenuk, Beisa oryx, Grevy’s zebra and the reticulated giraffe. As the area is so arid, game is concentrated along the banks of the river, making game viewing particularly good.

sample itinerary 2 Ngorongoro - Serengeti - Zanzibar

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers a large amount of varied terrain between the Serengeti and Lake Manyara Parks. It is an area of fantastic natural beauty and contains active volcanoes, mountains, archaeological sites, rolling plains, forests, lake dunes and the famous Ngorongoro Crater and Olduvai Gorge.

sample itinerary 3 Amboseli - Laikipia - Mara - Lamu

Amboseli is most famous for its photographs of elephant with Mount Kilimanjaro in the background. The mountain is situated on the boundary of the park and Amboseli National Park is certainly one of the finest locations for spotting the mountain. The elephants are a major attraction in Amboseli. The bull elephant here have some of the largest tusks in Kenya. The elephants are generally found in larger herds than most other areas, and are surprisingly relaxed around safari vehicles, allowing excellent photography.
