Description of Kenya safari tour

Join us for a Kenya safari tour that takes you from a world famous national park, to little-known wilderness areas, to the country’s dynamic capital. After a day spent in Nairobi, perhaps visiting the National Museum of Kenya or the Karen Blixen Museum, you’ll head north through the dramatic scenery of the Great Rift Valley to Lake Nakuru National Park, where you’ll have a good chance to spot rhinos, as well as other members of the Big Five.

Next, it’s Lake Naivasha, one of the few freshwater lakes in the Great Rift Valley, and home to a large hippo population as well as diverse birdlife. Then you’ll move on to Loita Hills Maasai Village, the perfect place to learn more about Maasai culture – here you’ll visit a Maasai home and see how cattle are kept.

Your final stop is the iconic Maasai Mara National Reserve, the quintessential wildlife watching experience, with wide open plains, vast skies and some of the most incredible wildlife spectacles on earth.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

For every week that our passengers spend in Africa, we plant a tree in Kenya through the Woodlands 2000 Trust, a local NGO. The Woodlands 2000 Trust is a wonderful project that provides seeds and seedlings with planting materials as well as land-planning, tree survival and woodlot management services. It aims to increase reforestation and bio-diversify in semi-arid regions, and also to create sustainable and profitable tree products micro-industries that contribute to alleviating poverty.

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a ‘take in, take back out’ waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.

People

We believe strongly in low impact tourism and so during this trip we use existing locally owned facilities and camp ground such as the one used in Nakuru. By using locally owned and run facilities we are helping the local communities that we visit.

There is a local guide based permanently in the Loita which is his home base. He knows the area, its culture and way of life, the flora and fauna exceptionally well and you will have a great opportunity to interact with him and the local Masai. You will have an opportunity purchase their artefacts, bead necklaces, belts, shukas and even see how they are made. The time we spend here will again benefit the local community.
