KENYA

EAST AFRICA

Let us all pull together

Kenya is a country of color; from the brightly colored Masai & Kikuyu people, to the pastel pinks of the flamingos in the Rift Valley Lakes. The famed wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara and the breathtaking backdrop of Kilimanjaro in Amboseli National Park – Kenya is, without doubt, the place where the African Safari dream was first realized!  The filming of ‘Born Free’ really put Kenya on the map.

In recent years mass human population growth throughout all of Africa, has put a strain on the National Parks and their wildlife.  Tourism pressure at times in Kenya is also high.  A quiet, private, and intimate experience is still possible in Kenya – Let us show you how. All the tours we design for you contain many value- added features. We cater to clients looking for an authentic Kenya experience! Not mini-bus madness.
