Discover Kenya is one of our most popular tours, and a fantastic introduction to the world of safaris, as it takes in many of Kenya's best-known national parks.

Your tour will begin on the expansive plains of the Masai Mara before taking in Lake Nakuru's spectacular pink waters, the swamps of Amboseli and the magnificent sight of Mount Kilimanjaro. Look out for the Big Five –  lions, leopards, rhinoceros, elephants, and Cape buffalo – as well as impala, cheetahs, hyenas, giraffe, zebras and wildebeest.

Enjoy a getaway of contrasts by adding a relaxing beach stay after your safari. The nearby Kenyan coast, or Zanzibar or Pemba Island off Tanzania offer plenty of appealing options – call our Destination Specialists and they'll  tailor make your dream holiday.
