Short Description

Admire some of the most beautiful parks in Kenya and experience the unique wonders of a safari: magnificent landscapes, exotic wildlife and Mount Kenya’s glaciers. A veritable cocktail of African emotions, this tour has all the ingredients for a memorable adventure. Don’t let it end there, extend your tour and soak in the beauty of Seychelles’ heavenly beaches.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Additional Information:

  • Depending on where your accommodation or the animals are located, the two morning safaris may be combined into a single one for greater wildlife observation.
  • The great migration to Masai Mara: : Every year between July and November, gazelles, wildebeests and zebras leave Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to reach the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya in search of pasture and water. The visit of this reserve (included in our program) at this time will most certainly allow you to observe these impressive animal movements.
