Tastes of Kenya Safari

Experience the Tastes of Kenya, one that will touch your soul. That’s what this safari is all about, leaving you with lifelong memories? Things like guided rich nature walks showcasing nature at its best, privately guided drives through Kenya with your friendly and knowledgeable guide.

We drive through Nairobi to Aberdare National Park where game viewing will be from your room window or the lodge’s balcony. Enjoy great sightings of wildlife and capture great shots of the game that visits the surrounding and the nearby waterhole.

Next we drive you to the neighbouring Samburu National Reserve where we will be introduced to the animals that are peculiar to this area - the reticulated giraffe, Gravy’s zebra, the Somali Ostrich amongst other flora and fauna. Spend another day exploring this harshly beautiful reserve where game is abundant, especially in the forested fringes of the Uaso Nyiro River, which flows gently through the dry landscape.

We head northwards next through the country’s central province, a fertile and scenic land formerly part of the historical ‘White Highlands’ to the shadows of the world famous Mount Kenya. Your destination today is the Ol Pejeta Sweetwaters Wildlife Sanctuary. A 110,000-acre private wilderness that boasts an astounding variety of wildlife, including all the members of the ‘Big Five' (the endangered black and white rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo and lion).

Our next destination is Lake Nakuru National Park made famous by the fact that it is home to hundreds of thousands of Flamingos that color the lake pink and also providing sanctuary for the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, White Rhino, Lion, Leopard among other wildlife as well as a wide range of bird species.

Next you will be driven to the broad yet shallow. Lake Naivasha which lays claim to a unique history, having entirely dried up at the beginning of the 20th century, only to reappear years later, brought back to life by heavy rains. Beautiful and serene in the daytime, the lake’s waters are often whipped into dramatic waves by late afternoon thundershowers. This turbulent characteristic led to the local Maasai naming the lake Na’iposha, meaning “rough water”.
