The gift of an Elephant

Highlights

Explore three of Kenya’s prime ecosystems and their unique wildlife on this 10-night safari. You will have the chance to discover national parks, as well as the opportunity to visit some of the country’s private conservancies. This makes for a journey that allows for the discovery of Kenya’s rich wildlife areas, coupled with the chance to learn about its strong conservation and community programs.

You will start your adventure in Amboseli National Park, home to Africa’s largest tuskers and the most iconic views of Mount Kilimanjaro. You’ll have the chance to try and capture images of the continent’s largest elephants with majestic Kilimanjaro set as the backdrop; you may also see cape buffalo, impala, hyena, lion, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, gazelle and wildebeest as well as some of the 600+ bird species are attracted to the lush green wetlands within the park. During your stay you will have the opportunity to visit the Amboseli Trust for Elephants to meet with Cynthia Moss, lead researcher and founder of the Trust. While there you will learn about the incredibly important research they have been performing over the last 47 years.

From there, you will visit the Lewa Conservancy, home to the second highest density of wildlife in Kenya. The Conservancy is a model for the conservation of wildlife through modern and sustainable methods that also incorporate the traditions of the people living in the area. The Conservancy is home to the "Big 5," as well as the endangered Grevy’s zebra and African wild dog. The game viewing here is excellent and can be done on foot, mountain bike, camel or on a traditional game drive. You’ll have occasional views of craggy Mount Kenya in the background as you explore, while the chance to learn about the area’s groundbreaking conservation and community projects is nothing short of inspiring.

No safari in Kenya would be complete without time spent in the Maasai Mara ecosystem. Your final destination is the Mara North Conservancy. The Conservancy borders the Maasai Mara National Reserve and is vital for sustaining the famous wildebeest migration which may be encountered seasonally. You may also have the chance to see the highly endangered African wild dog and black rhino as well as other resident wildlife. This is the East Africa of film and magazines - huge concentrations of wildlife, both resident and migratory, along with wide open, endless views. It’s the perfect place to cap off your exploration of Kenya!
