Inspired by the "Born Free' legacy of George and Joy Adamson and taking in three of Kenya's most renowned game reserves, this 11-day safari delivers one of our most intense game viewing experiences. Featuring some of the country's finest tented camps, a fly-in itinerary maximises your time on safari by cutting out long and dusty road transfers while the well-balanced blend of both classic and off-the-beaten-path destinations promises a wide diversity of scenery and wildlife.
Your adventure begins with a night at a boutique hotel in East Africa's gateway city of Nairobi before heading for the two parks made famous by the conservation efforts of the Adamsons. First up is the highly rewarding Meru National Park before a more private experience in the wild Shaba National Reserve. The game viewing at both is excellent - your guides will be in search of big cats, elephants, buffalo and hippo - but the grand finale is yet to come.
The journey ends at a camp set deep in the Masai Mara's exclusive North Conservancy where you will enjoy thrilling game drives in search of the Mara's legendary wildlife. There's superb all-year round game viewing but coinciding your visit with the July - November season is highly recommended. Tens of thousands of migrating wildebeest and zebra pour onto the Masai Mara's grassy plains, attracting the full range of predators and creating some of Nature's most dramatic scenes.
