2021 Tour Details View 2020 Tour Details »

When’s the last time you laughed like a hyena? Pack your khakis, greys, and greens and get ready for the ride of your life—or rides, rather! This classic African safari vacation packs in 10 game drives to see lion, leopard, zebra, giraffe, and countless other creatures of Kenya’s most famous national parks and wildlife reserves. Come face to face with adventure in custom-made 6-person 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles manned by expert safari guides. Take in the best views of the “Big 5,” the Samburu “Special 5,” and every impala, ostrich, and gazelle in between—all in their natural habitats. Need to slow down and put on the brakes? Sumptuous safari lodges and comfortable tented camps, breakfast in the bush, and late day sundowner drinks present the perfect opportunities to rest near the rhinos, raise a mimosa to the monkeys, and say cheers to the cheetahs. Just try to camouflage your excitement.

Feeding endangered giraffes at the Giraffe Center, meeting orphaned elephant calves at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and visiting the former home of Out of Africa author Karen Blixen are just a few highlights when you add Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city and concrete jungle, to your tour of Africa.
