Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on Globus 12 Day Kenya: A Classic Safari with Nairobi & Amboseli. 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 manned by expert safari guides.

Take in the best views of the “Big...read more 5,” the Samburu “Special 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.

Feeding endangered giraffes at the Giraffe Centre, meeting orphaned elephant calves at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and visiting the former home of Out of Africa author Karen Blixen are just a few highlights when you add Kenya’s capital city and concrete jungle to your tour of Africa.

Get ready for big game, grand views, and even grander memories when you add Amboseli National Park to your tour of Africa. Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, this massive elephant stomping ground is one of Africa’s best places to get up close to large herds in a variety of habitats.
