Meru, Laikipia and Maasai Mara Safari

Inspirational safari to Kenya

This Kenya Safari combines 3 of the country's most iconic wildlife regions, Meru National Park, famous as the setting for Joy Adamson's book, Born Free; Laikipia, home to rare and endangered species, including the black rhino; and the world-famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the jewel of Kenya's wildlife viewing areas.

First, Elsa’s Kopje at Meru National Park, where you will enjoy day and night game drives, river fishing, bush meals and cultural visits. Meru also offers a thriving rhino sanctuary. Follow this with a stay at Lewa Safari Camp in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Famous for its successful rhino and Grevy zebra breeding, you will enjoy drives, walks, horse, and camel rides, all with a backdrop of snow-capped Mt. Kenya. Lastly Sand River Maasai Mara where you may be lucky to catch the annual Wildebeest Migration. If not, the park is home to an abundance of game year-round. The camp replicates the heyday of exclusive tented camps of the late 1920's. Here’s your chance to enjoy a once-in-lifetime hot air balloon safari.
