Immerse yourself in the rich and exotic culture of Kenya. While the country boasts diverse cultural and ethnic groups, the scarlet-cloaked Masai, with their semi-nomadic lifestyle, has captured the world's fascination. Cultural tours offer a unique opportunity to delve into their remarkable survival and hunting skills and experience their vibrant traditions. The handcrafted beaded jewelry and colorful Shuka garments are breathtaking art pieces and lasting mementos of your African safari. Embark on an extraordinary journey off the beaten track and discover the wonders of Kenya's cultural heritage.
While the Masai Mara is undoubtedly the most renowned among Kenya's National Parks, there are numerous hidden gems waiting to be discovered away from the bustling crowds. Consider visiting Lake Naivasha, home to a plethora of bird species and vibrant flocks of pink flamingoes. The picturesque hills of Borana, where scenes from the iconic Lion King movie were captured, also offer an enchanting experience. Additionally, explore Lewa and Loisaba, where you can relish exclusive wildlife sightings without any distractions. Whether you prefer traversing the terrain by vehicle, on foot, horseback riding, or even atop a camel, the possibilities for extraordinary adventures are endless.
Fabulous Farm Experiences
Kenya is truly blessed with abundance. From the fertile volcanic soils of the Rift Valley comes a rich bounty of fresh vegetables, tea, coffee, nuts, and flowers. And let's not forget the Kenyan Coast, a treasure trove of tropical fruits and seafood. A farm tour is an excellent addition to any safari experience, where you'll be left in awe as you witness the opulent produce and discover the exceptional quality of our exports.
Kenya's private reserves house some of Africa's most successful rhino conservation projects. In the heart of Nairobi, the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe Centre are must-visit destinations. Purpose-driven safaris offer sustainable tourism experiences, and Nairobi city stands as a shining example of conservation within an African urban center.
Besides game drives and bush walks, Kenya offers a wide range of safari activities. For the adventurous souls, you can join the anti-poaching team for a morning boot camp, participate in the Nairobi Marathon, or embark on an exhilarating multi-day camel or horseback ride, spending nights in comfortable mobile camps. If you're seeking unique experiences, take a flight in a vintage Tiger Moth airplane, reminiscent of Robert Redford's era, or try kite surfing along the coast. And let's not forget about the awe-inspiring Mount Kenya, with its majestic snow-capped peak, the stunning hikes through Hells Gate, or the wildlife-rich off-road trails waiting to be explored on a mountain bike. Kenya truly has it all for the intrepid explorer!
