Getting Out of your Vehicle and into the Bush on this adventure Kenya safari

While many of our clients opt for the quintessential safari experience of twice-daily game drives with time for relaxation in between, others want a little more excitement. That's what our adventure Kenya safari is here for.

The adventures on offer in this itinerary include camel and horseback riding, mountain biking, and helicopter trips over Lake Turkana in Laikipia, as well as the unique opportunity to join a lion tracking project in the Mara. As you’re staying on private conservancies you’ll be able to go off-road and on night drives. Round off your trip with a walking safari through the bush and an overnight stay in a fly camp hosted by your Maasai guide – a truly unforgettable back-to-nature experience.
