Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on Globus 9 Day Kenya: A Classic Safari. When’s the last time you laughed like a hyena? Pack your khakis, greys, and greens and get ready for the ride of your life—or rides, rather! This classic African safari holiday packs in 10 game drives to see lion, leopard, zebra, giraffe, and countless other creatures of Kenya’s most famous national parks and wildlife reserves.

Come face to face with adventure in custom-made 6-person 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles staffed by expert safari guides. Take in the best views of the “Big 5,” the Samburu “Special...read more 5,” and every impala, ostrich, and gazelle in between—all in their natural habitats. Need to slow down and put on the brakes? Sumptuous safari lodges and comfortable tented camps, breakfast in the bush, and late day sundowner drinks present the perfect opportunities to rest near the rhinos, raise a mimosa to the monkeys, and say cheers to the cheetahs. Just try to camouflage your excitement.

Itinerary

Welcome to Nairobi, gateway to your dream safari. Hotel rooms are available for mid-afternoon check-in.

Drive north out of the city to Shaba National Reserve, home to the Samburu “Special 5,” a collection of unique animals, including Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, beisa oryx, and gerenuk. Start your safari adventure with an afternoon game drive. (B/L/D)

Morning and afternoon game drives with free time at your lodge in between. Due to the dry climate, grasses are sparse, making animals easier to spot. Meanwhile, the Ewaso Ng'iro River, which borders the reserve, provides a year-round water supply. These two factors make for a great game viewing experience! Sundowner drinks in the bush are served prior to returning to your lodge for dinner. (B/L/D)

Depart for Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa. En route, stop at Nanyuki Spinners and Weavers, a project aimed at building sustainable livelihoods for local women through social and economic activities. After lunch, visit the Sweetwaters Chimp Sanctuary, then set out for an afternoon game drive. (B/L/D)

Morning game drive in Ol Pejeta. Then, journey through the beautiful Kenyan highlands, one of the most fertile agricultural areas in all of Africa to Lake Nakuru National Park. Settle in to your lodge prior to dinner. (B/L/D)

Your morning game drive includes an exclusive bush breakfast. Keep your eyes out for giraffe, impala, flamingo, striped hyena, and a variety of birdlife along the water's edge. Free time at your lodge before an afternoon game drive. (B/L/D)

This morning, depart for Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya's most famous game area. “The Mara,” as it is called by locals, is part of the Serengeti ecosystem and boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives, typically from August to early November, their population grows by almost 2 million - a bountiful food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. After lunch at your lodge, set out on an afternoon game drive. (B/L/D)

Morning and afternoon game drives with free time to relax at your camp in between. Be sure to watch for elephant, rhino, giraffe, topi, hyena, and much more. Tonight, join a farewell dinner in the bush featuring a traditional Maasai dance performance. (B/L/D)

Embark on a final game drive before flying back to Nairobi, where a day room has been reserved for your use. Schedule departing flights after 5 pm. (B)
