NAIROBI, MASAI MARA, ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK, SAMBURU, LAKE NAIVASHA, SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Take a walk on the wild side with this small-group Kenya and Tanzania tour including airfare from the U.S.! Begin your adventure in Nairobi, before venturing out to explore captivating scenery and spot exotic animals. Visit the home of Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa, and have the amazing opportunity to feed and admire giraffes. Then, witness exciting wildlife on safari in the Samburu National Reserve, Aberdare National Park, and Masai Mara National Reserve. Game drives flourish with animals, both fierce and docile—from noble lions and fleet-footed cheetahs to strong, but peaceful elephants. At Lake Naivasha National Park, you’ll also find a rhino sanctuary and pink flamingos huddling around the lake. And during your stay at Lake Naivasha, enjoy a chance to unwind in tranquil surroundings. Continue on to Tanzania where you’ll visit Serengeti National Park (with the chance to look for the Big 5!) and Ngorongoro Crater.

Shorten Your Trip! Enjoy our 12-day Kenya Wildlife Safari tour visiting Kenya’s highlights from Nairobi to Lake Nakuru.
