I recommend not going cheap on ur rain gear. Definitely get water socks and some sort of game for at night. Make sure if you have diet needs, u tell them. Lots of carbs and chips mixed in with delicious food! I gained 2lbs! The guides bust their butts, bring cash! And Their packing list is right on.

We just got back from our 7 day and there were very high expectations coming into it. Two friends said it was the best trip of their lives, one of the friends went for his 3rd time with us. It was magical, amazing and I would go again! Lat, Evan, Parker and Jon were spectacular!

      About Elite Luxury Kenya

      Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

      Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
