On this magnificent Kenya safari, visit remarkable national parks and wildlife reserves in search of giraffe, cheetah, zebra, leopard, lion, elephant, rhino, gazelle, hyena, Cape buffalo, and more—all in their native environments. Imagine the thrill of seeing these majestic animals as they sunbathe on grassy land and roam across the vast savannah grassland. Due to the small group size, no more than 20 guests, you’ll stay in elegant tented camps, a nod to Africa safari pioneers. These unique and well-appointed properties enhance the experience by helping you feel closer to nature and at one with the landscape. </BR></BR>Your Africa safari vacation starts in Amboseli National Park, known for its large elephant population and spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro. In Samburu National Reserve, you’ll have the chance to see rare animals not spotted in other parts of Kenya. Commonly referred to as the Samburu “Special 5,” they include the Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx, and the gerenuk—a long-necked antelope that feeds while standing on its hind feet. Lion, cheetah, elephant, and Nile crocodile are also commonly spotted here. You’ll also spend two nights in Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s most famous game area. In addition to several game drives here, you will also enjoy a traditional Maasai dance performance and special farewell dinner in the bush—a unique experience offered by Globus! </BR></BR>In Nairobi, you’ll visit the Giraffe Center focused on saving the Rothschild’s giraffe; the Karen Blixen Museum, dedicated to the author of Out of Africa; and the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, an acclaimed project that rehabilitates orphaned elephant and rhino calves and reintroduces them to the wild. Here, meet the cute babies and learn about important conservation efforts. </BR></BR>Other highlights include Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and Lake Elmenteita, where you’ll enjoy sundowner drinks from a scenic hilltop. All of this and more await you on this amazing Africa safari vacation!
