7 Days Samburu, Amboseli & Tsavo West National Park Itinerary

Safari Highlights

Kenya is a land filled with the richness of Africa. From the remote Shaba Reserve where Survivor three was filmed amongst the Lion and Elephant to the Maasai Mara’s migrating herds of wildebeest, guests will enjoy a well-rounded, invigorating safari experience. This is balanced with periods of quiet contemplation where only the sound of a distant Lion’s roar breaks the night air. Exciting days and relaxing nights at comfortable, quality accommodations make this a great value African experience.
