Location

This safari trip takes place in Kenya. You will visit Aberdare National Park, Samburu National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park, Maasai Mara National Reserve, Amboseli National Park, Tsavo West National Park, Tsavo East National Park, and Voi.

Aberdare National Park is the country’s most elevated national park and encompasses a rare combination of soaring peaks, a high altitude plateau with alpine moorland, and dense rainforest at the lower altitudes.

In Samburu National Reserve, you can get a view of Uaso Nyiro River that cuts through this reserve, drawing a big population of Kenya animals to the park. The river bustles with activity from its huge population of Nile crocodile. The reserve's topography is mainly open savannah (grassland) with clusters of acacia trees, forest, thorn trees, and grassland vegetation.

Samburu National Reserve was one of the two areas in which conservationists George and Joy Adamson raised Elsa, the lioness. Their story was made famous by the bestselling book and award-winning movie "Born Free". The magnificent Maasai Mara game reserve is popular for the annual wildebeest migration.

Lake Nakuru National Park is famous for flamingos and a home to the endangered black and white rhino. In Amboseli National Park you can get a clear view of the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and among the highest in the world.

There will be a stopover in Tsavo East and West to view crocodile, hippos, and fish from an underground vessel. Other volcanic features are the Shetani Larva and Yatta Plateau.
