The Best of Kenya Safari will take you on an inspiring journey that will give you a chance to see the rare beauties of Kenya and overwhelm your senses by experiencing new places and different cultures from all sides through this custom-crafted itinerary.

This thrilling 9night Safari begins by setting off to Amboseli National Park – home to thousands of elephants, made popular by natural history documentaries such as ‘Echo of the elephants’ and is a beautiful park with far reaching plains, salt lake the magnificent backdrop of Kilimanjaro and easily the approachable wildlife—an excellent way for our game viewing expeditions.
