Luxury Kenya Safari Travel

Exotic yet faintly familiar, Kenya calls to that wild streak deep in the human heart that longs to be out in nature, to be part of something grander than ourselves.  And in no place is that more evident than on the rolling grasslands of the great Masai Mara.

 

For generations of travelers, Kenya has answered that call with one of the greatest natural shows on earth – the annual migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra crossing the Masai Mara’s rolling grasslands and wooded savanna. Kenya welcomes travelers with luxury, tented camps, private estates nestled deep in the wilderness, and classic game lodges. The sweeping countryside of the Great Rift Valley takes in striking Mt. Kenya, the second highest peak in Africa. Vast Lake Victoria is the second largest freshwater lake in the world, and the source of the White Nile, one of the two tributaries of Egypt’s mythic Nile River. Kenya is also the ancestral home to more than 40 distinct tribal groups. This is quintessential safari country ripe with adventures. With its wealth of wildlife, cultures and dramatic scenery, Kenya remains one of the most popular and best organized safari destinations.

Yet, Kenya’s wildlife populations, and therefore its people, face serious threats from human overcrowding, habitat loss and the seemingly endless appetite for illegal ivory and other animal products. There are pockets of hope in Kenya’s private conservancies such as the Chyulu Hills, which has achieved the lowest rates of poached elephants in Africa, and with organizations such as the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. We recognize that a multi-pronged approach is needed that includes tour operators, conservancies, conservation groups and local communities working together to save Kenya’s, and indeed Africa’s, wild places for the sake of future generations, and the diversity of the planet itself.

"This adventure goes in search of some of the largest land animals left on Earth - from the rare mountain gorilla to the African elephant - both highly threatened species. It also travels into an indigenous pygmy village of the Batwa, who have been known historically as the keepers of the forest, the original dwellers of Uganda’s Bwindi Forest. I am impressed by their amazing knowledge of the plants and animals that has been gained over millennia. Search for the big cats and the tiny bush babes in two stunning Kenya locations. This is a traditional safari that will go beyond your Africa expectations."

Since I was a girl, I longed to be here surrounded by the wild. In this moment, time seems set aside as we follow the wildebeest and zebra plodding along in a thin line that stretches back through time immemorial. In the afternoon light, thousands of animals seem to walk with me and I can feel my spirit rising. We pause the vehicle to take it all in. I look toward a low mound, not far away. The cheetah is standing on the top scouting the horizon, paying little notice of us or the twin cubs tussling at her feet. In a slow turn, I marvel at the giraffes moving slowly with their distinctive rocking gait towards some skinny trees, and a herd of gazelle munching on the low grass. And, in the distance, elephants. This land calls to that wild streak deep in my heart that longs to be part of something grander than myself. No place is this more powerful than right here, right now.

"A few years ago, the question used to be which part of Africa do you choose, East or Southern? Combining the two not was an option. Thanks to new flight routes and the exploration of new adventures, the question now is where do you want to start, Nairobi or Cape Town. It’s the perfect safari for someone that has the time and wants to see as much as possible. Imagine, seeing Cape Town from a WWII motorcycle sidecar, engaging with the San people of Botswana’s Makgadikgadi before exploring the Okavango Delta by mokoro. Take in the awesome power of Victoria Falls, connect with an orphaned elephant at the Sheldrick Orphanage in Nairobi, and cap of the greatest safari with the greatest wildebeest migration in the Serengeti!"
