The Ultimate Wildlife and Culture Experience
From the doum palms and riverine forests of Samburu, to the majestic beauty of snow-covered Mount Kilimanjaro and on to vast herds and grasslands of the Maasai Mara, Kenya is quintessential sub-saharan Africa at its best. Safari is a Swahili word meaning “long journey” and that is what we will be on from the moment we set foot on this continent. This will be an African safari at its best; with an abundance of wildlife, action and loads of excitement. We will visit villages that will envelop us in tribal culture and colors. Our trip will take us to Amboseli National Park, one of the best places in Africa to see large herds of elephants. Some of the largest tuskers live here in front of Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro.
We will then fly north to Samburu, home of the traditional Samburu tribe. Here we will find several species of animals endemic only to the dry and arid northern climate of Samburu National Reserve including gerenuk, Grevy’s zebra and reticulated giraffe. All three big cats are found in Samburu including over 350 species of birds. We will spend an evening with the Samburu people experiencing their traditions in full color.
Finally we will fly to the Maasai Mara where we will witness one of the greatest spectacles on this planet - the Great Migration. Nearly two million wildebeest and zebras cross the plains of the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara and it is here where we will make our home in a perfectly situated camp for the next four nights. To experience the sights and sounds of this epic herd thundering across the plains is like nothing else in the world. We will also visit a traditional Maasai Village, shop for beautiful handmade beadwork, and learn about this colorful nomadic tribe.
Experience the magic that this wild continent stirs within each of us.
