Itinerary

The buzzing streets of Nairobi are the perfect place to start a wildlife adventure of Kenya. Attractions include the fascinating National Museum of Kenya - a museum dedicated to Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa - and plenty of bubbly cafes, bars and markets.
Head out on an exciting game drive in Aberdare National Park and keep an eye out for lions, elephants, leopards, baboons, hyenas, monkeys and the mysterious African golden cat - a rare species that lives a solitary existence.
Home to a variety of Kenya's nomadic tribes, the Samburu region is a sanctuary for zebras, giraffes, gerenuks and a plethora of bird species. Journey out into the park to see these graceful creatures and, with luck, proud lions and cunning leopards too.
Rise early and travel through spectacular scenery on a ride towards the edge of the Samburu National Reserve. Meet brightly dressed and accessorised tribal people and learn about the traditions and customs that shape their daily lives. Visit the innovative not-for-profit Ol Pejeta Conservancy. From cheeky chimpanzees to graceful gazelles, Ol Pejeta Conservancy is teeming with exotic wildlife and is also the largest sanctuary for black rhinos in East Africa - so take the rare chance to view these endangered creatures. After some amazing wildlife encounters, stop by a local market and see the art of traditional wool-spinning in action. Take an excursion to the famed Mau Mau Caves and, with the help of a local guide, learn about survival techniques, herbal medicine and forest foods. Spend nights sleeping near magnificent Mt Kenya.
Farewell the wild plains of Africa and drive back to Nairobi where the incredible Kenya Wildlife Adventure ends.
