Get a taste of nature’s bounty on this journey across Southern Kenya. Staying in luxury safari camps, you’ll head on game drives in two of Kenya’s famous game reserves, Tsavo West and the Masai Mara. Spot Red Elephants crossing in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, meet with local Masai villagers, and track the Big Five.


This 8-day Kenyan vacation takes you to two of the nation’s most popular game reserves, Tsavo West National Park and Masai Mara National Reserve. It features luxury accommodations, shared tours, and is ideal for travellers wanting comfort while on safari.

Your trip to Kenya begins in Tsavo West National Park, pitched on the southern border of the nation in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Staying at the 5-star Finch Hattons Luxury Camp, you’ll spend three nights at the camp, enjoying its eco-friendly luxury and the comforts of your own private suite and pool. Enjoy fine dining while you watch the resident hippos wade in the camp waterhole. Each day, you’ll head on game drives to discover the many animals that live in this landscape of swamps, volcanic peaks, and rolling plains. You’ll have a good chance of seeing some of the 12,000 Red Elephants that call the park home.

After getting your fill of wildlife in Tsavo West, head northwest and connect to the Masai Mara and Olare Motorogi Conservancy, your 5-star home for the next four nights. Enjoy eco-friendly luxury in one of the camp’s 12 tents as you explore the world-famous confines of Masai Mara National Reserve. One day, you’ll visit a local Masai village to meet with the villagers, learn about Masai customs, and have a chance to help milk cattle and even visit a local school. Spend the next two days heading on game drives to see the Big Five and perhaps catch a glimpse of the Great Migration if you happen to be travelling during August and September.

At the end of your stay, head to the airport to connect to your next destination.
