Iconic luxury Kenya safari experiences and authentic accommodation
This itinerary offers the hallmark experiences of a luxury kenya safari – incredible wildlife, diverse landscapes, and local culture – but from camps that exude authenticity, barefoot luxury, and a sense of adventure.
Explore the bush in Lewa by foot, horseback, or camel – or how about an open cockpit bi-plane ride straight out of Out of Africa? Interact with Samburu tribespeople in Kenya’s remote Northern Frontier, and explore the vast lunar landscapes of Lake Turkana by helicopter. Finish in the Masai Mara, considered the crown jewel of a safari in Kenya with good reason – the wildlife here is outstanding regardless of what time of year you visit.

Climb the summit of the sacred Mount Ololokwe or go on a canopy walk above rainforest to look for forest elephant
