Kenya Safari Adventure

Dates: 10/14/2018 to 10/27/2018


Trip Details

Kenya’s landscapes are teeming with animals, from speedy cheetahs to majestic herds of zebras. On this thrilling Kenyan safari, you will see them all in some of the country’s most spectacular settings.

We will begin our touring in Amboseli National Park, which not only offers great game viewing, but also is the best place for iconic views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free-standing mountain. Then it is on to Mt. Kenya National Park, which forms a habitat for wild animals and acts as a reservoir supplying Kenya’s water. At Serena Mountain Lodge, our game viewing will take place as we look down from an open-air deck to a water hole bustling with elephants and buffalo herds.

Each day will bring a new game viewing experience. Samburu National Reserve hosts many rare species including the Grevy’s Zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, and beisa oryx. Lake Nakuru is one of the world’s most famous soda lakes and hosts brilliant pink flamingos as far as the eye can see. The Masai Mara offers some of the finest game viewing in the world, with a dramatic mass movement of almost 2 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle in the annual cycle driven by rainfall.

Witness the drama of the bush unfolding around you on this amazing safari adventure.
