Swap the hubbub of Kenya's capital for the calls of flamingos, zebras and rhinos as you journey from Nairobi to Masai Mara. The impressive Great Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha make an unforgettable backdrop as you camp out under the stars. Trek across the plains in search of Africa's largest residents, including lions, cheetahs and elephants. Spend time with the Masaai people and experience their fascinating tribal culture. Witness conservation projects that help protect animals from harm and extinction.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Venture into the incredible Masai Mara National Reserve for a full-day game drive
  • Make friends with warriors of the Maasai tribe around the camp fire; they'll be on guard for lions while you and your family camp overnight
  • Get a taste of Nairobi, an exciting, cosmopolitan city of sterling restaurants, cafes and museums
  • Keep your eyes peeled for black and white rhinos on an adventure through Lake Nakuru National Park
  • Encounter colourful birds and herds of zebra on a walk around Crater Lake
  • You and your family will be in excellent hands for the duration of your trip, travelling with a crew of three experienced locals – a leader, driver and cook

Is this trip right for you?
  • Please take into consideration if you are travelling with younger children that the going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land! Some days have driving times of 6-7 hours. Furthermore there will be early mornings, when Africa is at its best.
  • This is a participatory camping trip and everyone will embrace the team spirit by helping with camp setup, food preparation and cleaning. You and your family will be putting up and taking down your tent as you move from place to place.
  • In Loita Hills (Day 5) you will stay in a bush camp with no shower facilities. The rewards of experiencing the Maasai culture, however, should more than make up for the lack of creature comforts.
  • Our purpose-built overland vehicles allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. They have no air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot at times.

We had the time of our lives! This trip is perfect for families that have a passion for the natural world and animals. It is full of culture, scenic views and gun group activities. I would highly recommend it. Kenya is just beautiful and we had the best time.

Great trip and varied experiences. It’s basic but safe and clean and therefore great value. Loved meeting the Kenyan crew and the other international group members. The safaris are AMAZING. The Masai village is outstanding.
