7 Day Safari Itinerary

Kenya Classic Safari – Superior

The greatest show on Earth

Our seven day Kenya Classic tour is one of our most popular Kenyan safaris as it takes in many of the most loved parks.


This safari begins on the open plains of the Masai Mara, takes you to the shimmery pink waters of Lake Nakuru, then the swamps of Amboseli. Spot the mighty Big Five, marvel at the vast array of bird life and enjoy magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro, just across the border in Tanzania. 

After a fantastic safari spotting wildlife why not add a relaxing beach stay on the Kenyan coast or on the nearby islands of Zanzibar or Pemba off Tanzania? Our Destination Specialists can tailor-make an itinerary to suit your aspirations.
