NEW Trip – Kyrgyzstan & the Tian Shan MountainsJoin 19 August 2024 Departure

Ancient human cultures, abundant flora and iconic wildlife traversing sweeping landscapes - when you envisage these epic scenes of Africa, you're most likely picturing Kenya.

From sunbaked deserts and perfect beaches to fertile highlands, rugged mountains and endless grassy savannas, Kenya is blessed with a huge variety of landscapes, upon which roams a staggering diversity of wildlife. It's here that you have the chance to see Africa's iconic 'Big 5' game animals up close and in their natural environments.

Witness the awe-inspiring sight of the great annual migration, as millions of wildebeest and other animals make their yearly northward journey from Tanzania's Serengeti to the greener pastures of Kenya's Masai Mara. Here in the Mara you can access extraordinary scenery, experience the culture of the Masai people and camp out under the stars for an unforgettable wilderness experience.

Raft the white-water rapids of Sagana, cycle through the spectacular Hells' Gate National Park or challenge yourself with an exhilarating summit of snowcapped Mt Kenya, Africa's second-highest peak. Watch iconic wildlife roam the savannas at sunset, and train your lens on impossibly photogenic scenes.

Explore art, architecture and history on the tropical island of Lamu, the world's greatest living example of Swahili culture, and enjoy Nairobi's museums and markets, where you can shop for vibrant baskets, beaded jewellery and the iconic red blankets of the Masai.

With all of its environmental and cultural treasures, this is a destination begging to be explored. Check out our range of unique itineraries and start planning your Kenya adventure!



Our all inclusive approach

With a focus on quality safari accommodation and enthusiastic camping crews, our Kenya are great value for money. We aim to incorporate as many inclusions as possible in the trip cost such as most meals, transfers, game drives, excursions, permits and national park fees. .

Your safety is our main priority

A comprehensive medical kit accompanies all our trekking trips while on Mt Kenya (4985m) a portable altitude chamber accompanies the group.

Quality meals

While on safari you will generally receive three meals per day, with plenty of choices. When on trek, we provide a full meal service as part of the trip cost. This lowers your risk of getting sick because with your assigned cook, we ensure that your food is prepared using strict hygiene standards. Any special dietary requirements can generally be catered for if we are notified in advance. While in the towns and cities, your accommodation will include a full breakfast service.

Authentic experiences

From the best wilderness areas to the most rewarding trekking destinations, our Kenya journeys allow you to experience local culture up close and personal. Witness the great migration herds in the Masai Mara, climb Mount Kenya or enjoy an African sunset on a camping safari - there's an adventure for every interest and fitness level.

Experienced local guides

Our excellent staff are what make your experience special. From spotting wildlife to cooking up a feast on the campfire, our guides are passionate about sharing the wonders of their country to ensure your Kenya dreams are made a reality.

Leaders in responsible travel

Responsible travel practice is at the heart of every program that we offer in Kenya. Our adventures provide a true wilderness experience by viewing wildlife in their natural habitat and supporting the conservation of endangered wildlife, diverse environments and local communities.


Deforestation alleviation

We have a long-standing policy of camping rather than using hotels. Many hotels in Kenya do not follow true sustainability practices and it is common for them to use firewood cut from World Heritage areas to provide energy for tourists. When we do stay in lodges, we ensure that they adhere to our strict responsible tourism guidelines.

Support of local economies

Our trips avoid tourist shops and commercial villages, encouraging travelers to purchase handicrafts direct from artisans.

Responsible safaris

We employ local guides who report all injured, snared or ill wildlife spotted to the local rangers. Additionally, they utilise various safari routes to ensure that the tourist footprint is lessened.

Safari lodges

In game parks, national parks and rural locations we use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area. Some may have extra facilities such as a swimming pool or private balcony.

Permanent safari camps

Like a tented hotel room, this is the perfect way to experience the African wilderness. We use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area.


We offer two styles of camping; fully supported and semi-participation. Both styles feature quality two person tents erected in scenic wilderness.


In cities or large towns you will be accommodated in 3 to 4 star, twin share properties that are centrally located, comfortable and reliable.

Mountain huts

Some treks feature camping in a communal dormitory with basic shared facilities.
