Kenya Wilderness Experience

7 days from £2815pp plus international flights.

A diverse three-centre safari in Kenya's Masai Mara, Amboseli and Ol Pejeta Reserves, staying in good quality, eco-friendly Porini camps.

From the big cats and annual migration of the Masai Mara, to the huge elephant herds of the Amboseli, and the diverse wildlife of Ol Pejeta Reserve, this safari will give you an exciting insight into the variety of Kenya's landscape and wildlife.

If you take this trip between about July and October the annual wildebeest migration should be in the Mara which gives as added special aspect to the trip, but the wildlife viewing should be excellent at most times through the year (perhaps avoiding the main rainy months of April and May).

From day one you will be met and assisted from place to place. You have on road trip from Nairobi to Amboseli, but all other main journeys are flights.

The Porini camps are excellent quality small camps. They have an authentic safari camp atmosphere, and whilst they are quite rustic, they are very comfortable. They have en-suite bathrooms with solar-power and other eco-friendly initiatives to reduce their impact on the sensitive environments they are placed within. The Masai Mara and Amboseli camps are in conservancies owned by Maasai communities who benefit from tourism. Conservation also benefits from the camps' presence as the Maasai have more reason to protect the wildlife.

The guides at the camps are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing their passion for their home. You will return home with some incredible memories to treasure.
