Grading:
This tour is a lodge and tented camps based Kenya wildlife tour. Please remember that, in the national parks and game reserves, it is not permitted for visitors to leave the safety of their vehicles, meaning that we’ll spend quite a lot of time in the comfortable 4 WD drive safari vehicles! It is, though, the only way to see Kenya’s unrivalled birds and wildlife and every participant will enjoy a window seat. 

Focus:
Kenya wildlife, birds and natural history.
