Keep an eye out for Africa's Big 5 on a spectacular overland journey.
Visit Africa and forge into the heart of Kenya’s finest game parks on this eight-day overland journey. Visit Kenya's amazing natural sights by day and in the evenings, kick back in the comfort of a well-appointed lodge or private tented camp and fall asleep to the sounds of nocturnal animals. Watch Kenya's abundant flamingos make Lake Nakuru blush pink; pass herds of animals on the vast plains of the Masai Mara; and sip sundowners on evening game drives.
Stay in a selection of rustic permanent tented camps and lodges across Kenya's unspoilt wilderness without sacrificing the creature comforts of home.
Experience the thrill of sleeping 'Under Canvas' and drift off to sleep to the sounds of the African night.
Spot endangered black and white rhino stopping for a drink in Lake Nakuru NP.
Watch lions prowling the famous Masai Mara on a 4x4 game drive.
Witness thousands of pink flamingos descending on Lake Naivasha, completely covering the sparkling blue waters.
We use our purpose-built overland vehicles for the duration of this trip. It is important to note that while our vehicles are not air-conditioned, all windows do open to allow for fresh air. But please be aware that road travel in Africa comes with its fair share of dust, so while curtains are fitted to minimize the sun shine, it can get hot and windy.
This itinerary features some long travel days which can be exacerbated by bumpy African roads. It is recommended that you pay close attention to our given approximations of distance and driving hours.
Our overland safaris do not necessitate exceptional fitness levels, but a general level of physical movement is required. For example, you need to judge yourself physically fit enough to handle.
As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.

This trip was well planned and included all the key sites. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and organised. This is a truely magical part of the world and somewhere that should be on your bucket list if it isn't already. I highly recommend booking with intrepid for a well planned and enjoyable visit. Just remember, this is Africa so "comfort" level touring doesn't always mean 5 stars - but that is all part of the experience.
