Best of Kenya Safari

Inspirational safari holiday to Kenya

This Best of Kenya Safari combines 3 of the country's most iconic wildlife areas, Amboseli National Park, with its majestic backdrop of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, with its pioneering approach to conservation and the world-famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the jewel of Kenya's game viewing areas. The Amboseli region is known for its magnificent elephants - a population of over 1000 elephants reside in the parks eco-system. Stay at the luxurious eco-lodge, Tortilis Camp where you will experience game drives, walks, sundowners and bush meals. From here it is a scenic flight over to over the rolling plains north of Mt Kenya for a stay at Lewa Safari Camp. Set in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, this unique and exclusive retreat offers privileged access to 65,000 acres of private protected wilderness and is a globally recognized rhino conservation habitat. Conclude this unforgettable safari at Sand River Camp in the Maasai Mara. The area is home to an abundance of animals both resident and transitory, and host to one of the best-known animal kingdom spectacles on earth, the annual Great Migration.
