This unforgettable Trip With a Purpose explores two world-renowned wildlife destinations within one of Africa's premier safari countries, Kenya. Both Amboseli and Masai Mara are two of Kenya's most visited parks, for good reason. The camps included for each are in private conservancies—the best way to escape the crowds and enjoy pristine landscapes from the comfort of classic safari camps.
Ease in by starting off your adventure in the heart of Nairobi National Park. Unwind from a long flight as you take in the beautiful landscape around you at your first stop, Nairobi Tented Camp. From here, you can enjoy leisurely game drives, nature walks, and an outing into Nairobi. After just a taste of safari in Nairobi, begin your journey south to Amboseli National Park for incredible game viewing and quintessential views of legendary Mount Kilimanjaro. Conclude your Kenya circuit within the world-famous Masai Mara. Find yourself floating silently over its plains in a hot-air balloon basket, traversing its tracks through herds of wildebeest and zebra, and tracing trails on foot led by local Maasai guides.
This trip is perfect for anyone who has ever enjoyed a National Geographic documentary displaying dramatic and poignant scenes of Africa's iconic wildlife; or felt a pull to experience first-hand the wild showcase of the reserves portrayed so compellingly by the beloved Sir David Attenborough.
