Wildlife Wonders

Travelling through some of the richest game areas in the world, this safari presents excellent opportunities for viewing the ‘big five’. It includes the Masai Mara, home to the greatest wildlife show on earth.

The Samburu Reserve, home to the colourful Samburu people, is a dramatic and rugged landscape which is truly rewarding. A host of plains game along with the ‘big five’ are accompanied by a variety of exotic birds including eagles, falcons and bateleurs.

As you approach Lake Nakuru, you may be fortunate enough to witness a pink cloud on the horizon which gradually reveals its source, thousands of pink flamingoes, a magnificent sight of immense beauty. Around the lake a game reserve has been created where the endangered black rhino is protected and may be seen along with antelope, giraffes, lions and hyenas.

Children aged 7 and below are not permitted on this safari.
