Jambo Kenya Safari

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,814

Explore the best of Kenya on this East African safari. On a round-trip from Nairobi, relax on country estates, see Lakes Elementaita and Nakuru, and meet the wildlife and people of the Masai Mara.


This 9-day African safari takes you through Kenya, one of the most diverse and fascinating countries on the continent.

Set out from Nairobi, bound for the Aberdare Highlands in the Great Rift Valley. Settle in at the Aberdare Country Club for one night, with the option of a game drive that offers you the chance to see both black and white rhinos. Go deeper into the park the following day, staying at the Ark, a unique game lodge modelled on Noah’s legendary ark. Suffice to say, the game viewing is superb. You can even watch the animals from viewing decks in the lodge itself.

On the floor of the Great Rift Valley lie Lake Elemantaita and Lake Nakuru, where over 400 different bird species reside. The area also attracts a huge population of flamingos, creating one of Africa’s most colourful natural spectacles. It’s all part of the immense biodiversity that defines this area.

Drive on to the Masai Mara, arguably Kenya’s most renowned wildlife regions. This area flows on from Tanzania’s Serengeti, and forms part of the great migration’s route between July and October every year. But it’s a great area for game drives and other wildlife adventures year round, in addition to being a beautiful area in its own right. Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives to make the most of your time here over three days, before returning to Nairobi for departure.
