Kenya is so closely connected to safari like few other countries in Africa. In fact, East Africa is the birth place of the word “safari”, which means “journey” in the local language Swahili. Our handcrafted journeys will take you to the picture-perfect landscapes that Blixen and Hemingway described in their world-famous novels like the omnipresent open savanna of the Mara. This is one of nature’s most famous stages; prepare for epic struggles between predator and prey and to be a first-hand witness to the circle of life, especially in the times of the Great Migration (seasonal), the epicenter of your Kenya safari.
You will also explore colourful urban centres like Nairobi, echoing the sounds of business and busyness, producing scents of exotic cuisine and blending traditions with modern life. Or you combine your “safari” with a few days of rejuvenation and digital detoxing on the stunning beaches on the Indian Ocean like Diani or Lamu Island just to name a few. Get ready for an absolute highlight of your African safari!
