Discover Eastern Africa

KENYA

A safari to Kenya is the ultimate classic Big 5 safari. Filled with romance, thrilling experiences, natural beauty, wide open plains, and up close and personal encounters. The Masai Mara is the most well-known to view the Annual Wildebeest Migration between July and October, however Amboseli National Park and the northern parts of Kenya’s private concessions are well worth seeing. Light aircraft flights soar across the landscapes allowing you to bear witness to the magic across the country. Perfect for couples, solo travelers, families with children of all ages and groups of friends preferring private villa-style accommodations. Kenya combines well with Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda for primate experiences, and Seychelles or Mauritius for an extended beach escape.
