Description

This trip came together for a couple that is well-traveled in Southern Africa but was looking to be introduced to East Africa with visits to 3 very different safari destinations in Kenya. The trip’s introduction in Amboseli included spectacular views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, excellent elephant sightings and great community conservation work. Up next was the Lewa Conservancy in Northern Kenya that included a wide variety of activities, exceptional rhino sightings and behind the scenes access to highly impactful conservation projects.

For the big finish, they head to the Mara North Conservancy known for its concentration of bigs cats and uncrowded access to unforgettable sightings of the migratory herds. For this time in the Mara, they also had their own private guide and vehicle, granting them quite a bit of flexibility to explore this world renowned ecosystem.
