Kenya is a country situated on the eastern coast of the continent of Africa.
The vast savannahs of Kenya are world famous for the abundance of wildlife found in their plains. Straddling the Equator, and stretching from the Indian Ocean, spread in the Great Rift Valley and beyond, Kenya is a country of huge variety and exceptional beauty. In fact, the name Kenya has become synonymous with the great wilds of Africa but they represent far more than you would expect, protecting and showcasing a broad range of habitats and species.
This thrilling safari takes you into different reserves of Kenya. Samburu, lying within the semi-desert area of Kenya’s northern frontier, is heaven for viewing Africa’s lesser-known mammals!
And, last but not the least, this safari takes you to the world famous open plains of Masai Mara, renowned for the Big 5! The Masai Mara National Reserve is conceivably Kenya’s prime wilderness spot.
Entitled as ‘The Home of the Safari’ by renowned personalities such as Ernest Hemingway and Karen Blixen, Kenya never fails to enchant the visitor.
