Tours in Kenya

From the snow-capped peaks of glacial Mount Kenya and infinite stretches of lush savannahs, to the undulating green hills of Kericho and angelic white beaches of Mombasa and its coastline – the sheer diversity in Kenya’s landscapes is truly astonishing.

With picture-perfect panoramas almost everywhere you turn, it can be hard to know where to begin. Embarking on our Treasures of Kenya tour, you’ll first journey through Samburu National Reserve – home to a plethora of rare and exotic creatures, including the iconic Big Five, hippos, Tanzanian cheetah and impala. In addition, you’ll also spot the rare ‘Samburu Special Five’, which includes the Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, beisa oryx and gerenuk antelope. Experience these fascinating creatures as part of a thrilling 4x4 game drive, before witnessing the annual wildebeest migration to the Masai Mara. Occurring between July and October, this breath-taking display of nature often provides the opportunity to see Kenya’s predators in action – whether it be the prowling lions in the tall grasses, or the calculating crocodiles, lying in wait in the shallows as wildebeest cross the treacherous Mara River in search of greener pastures.
