Kenya highlights

Venture into the heart of Africa, where wilderness safaris originated. This unique destination boasts culture, adventure and wildlife experiences that are unique in comparison to any other African or global destination. Float over the savannah plains in a hot air balloon or witness the Great Migration in its earth shuddering trek through the Maasai Mara, skydive at Diani beach or track Wild Dogs through the Laikipia Wilderness – the list of wild and adventurous experiences in this East African wildlife mecca is long and glorious.

Great Migration

Witness millions of wildebeest storm through the Maasai Mara on the Great Migration. One of the most awe inspiring wildlife events in the world, the Great Migration offers opportunity to watch wildebeest overcome distance, predators and exhaustion in search of greener pastures.

Mount Kenya

You’ll find Mount Kenya at [ 0.1521° S, 37.3084° E ], just south of the Lewa and Borana Wildlife Conservancies. Lock it into your GPS now and commit to the challenge. With a few routes to the summit this mountain has something to offer everyone from novice to expert mountaineer.

Wild Dogs

There are however, few adventure options in Kenya, or the world, that offer the experience, thrill, remoteness and adventure of walking with wild dogs. Whether on a single day of tracking on foot, or spending a week walking through the Laikipia wilderness, memorable encounters are certain.

Maasai Mara

Explore the incredible landscapes of the Maasai Mara with a guide from the Maasai tribe and gain an authentic perspective of the pristine wilderness. The Maasai Mara hasn’t become a world renowned wildlife attraction by accident.

What type of wildlife will we see?

Kenya boasts volumes of giraffe, zebra and wildebeest grazing in the expansive plains and hippo are commonly seen wallowing in the waters. Expect to encounter a hyena mischievously sniffing about a lion’s kill. Look out for the endemic and eccentric gerenuk as well as the rare fringe-eared oryx. There have been over 1100 bird species recorded in Kenya, including the ground hornbill, white-bellied go-away-bird and hartlaub’s bustard.
