Safari type

Setting off from Nairobi, safaris are the best way to see Kenya’s unforgettable and iconic wildlife species

Most of our safaris start in Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi. You can spend a couple of nights here, visiting the city’s main attractions such, before heading out on your safari. Our favourite spots are the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an elephant and rhino orphanage on the edge of Nairobi National Park, and the Giraffe Centre which is located in the grounds of the world-famous Giraffe Manor. Join your fellow travellers on one of our small group safari and enjoy travelling through the country with like-minded people. Alternatively, take off from the city’s Wilson Airport on a fly-in safari and land on a remote landing strip in your chosen destination. 4x4 safaris are a good-value way of exploring the country; you’ll set off from your Nairobi accommodation and hit the road and get to see the world go by as you travel.
