Safari type

Look for the ‘special five’ and visit the home of Elsa the lioness on a safari in Samburu and Meru

Lesser-visited parks like Samburu and Meru are hidden gems worth combining with the more famous national parks. Game drives in Samburu reveal the ‘special five’ which include long-necked gerenuk and reticulated giraffe, while Meru is the home of Elsa the lioness whose story captured in the film, Born Free. A small group safari takes out the guesswork with itineraries that help you get the most out of your time by combining different parks. As part of a small group, you’ll go on 4x4 game drives exclusively for Kuoni guests and have a guaranteed window seat for uninterrupted game viewing. On an independent safari, we’ll help you create your own itinerary where you’ll get to choose how long and where you stay – like a camp where elephants wander past your tent.
