Kenya: A Classic Safari with Nairobi & Stay in Maasai Mara
On this magnificent Kenya safari, visit remarkable national parks and wildlife reserves in search of giraffe, cheetah, zebra, leopard, lion, elephant, rhino, gazelle, hyena, Cape buffalo, and more—all in their native environments. Imagine the thrill of seeing these majestic animals as they sunbathe on grassy land and roam across the vast savannah grassland. And with no more than 6 guests per vehicle and 20 guests total in each group you’ll experience distinguished service by your professional Tour Director and experienced Driver/Guide.
Your safari adventure starts in Samburu National Reserve, where you’ll have the chance to see rare animals not spotted in other parts of Kenya. Commonly referred to as the Samburu “Special 5,” they include the Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx, and the gerenuk—a long-necked antelope that feeds while standing on its hind feet. Lion, cheetah, elephant, and Nile crocodile are also commonly spotted here. You’ll also spend two nights in Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s most famous game area. In addition to several game drives here, you will also enjoy an exclusive bush breakfast—a unique experience offered by Globus!
In Nairobi, you’ll visit the Giraffe Center focused on saving the Rothschild’s giraffe; the Karen Blixen Museum, dedicated to the author of Out of Africa; and the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, an acclaimed project that rehabilitates orphaned elephant and rhino calves and reintroduces them to the wild. Here, meet the cute babies and learn about important conservation efforts. Other highlights include Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and Lake Nakuru, a small but diverse park known for its alkaline lake.
All of this and more await you on this amazing Africa safari vacation!
