Soul Safari

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,421

Stay at world class properties, visiting both Aberdare and Mount Kenya National Parks, Sweetwaters Wildlife Sanctuary and Masai Mara, without compromising luxury on your African safari.


This luxurious 8 day tour lets you explore the exciting contrasts of Kenya without compromising comfort.

Believed by the Kikuyu people to be one of the homes of Ngai, or God, the Aberdare Mountain Range is home to one of Kenya’s most vibrant national parks. It is home to lions, leopards, African hunting dogs and a large population of rare black rhino. See them from the unique balconies of The Ark Lodge, luxury accommodation overlooking a waterhole and salt lick, specially designed for optimum game viewing.

Mt Kenya provides a spectacular backdrop to 2 nights at the Fairmont Mt Kenya Safari Club. Coupling modern facilities with classic, old world charm, this is an ideal base for enjoying the many excursions and game drives on offer. Visit the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya, or relax with a round of golf at the club before your adventure continues at Masai Mara.

This game reserve is famous for its large population of big cats and the colourful culture of the Masai people. One of the best preserved parts of Kenya, life has changed little here over the past century. Consider a balloon ride at extra cost, for incredible views over the famous ‘endless plains’.
