This compact 8-day Kenya wildlife safari hones in on the most impressive and dynamic wildlife reserves in Kenya. Drive through the lush and historic Aberdare Mountain Range passing Mt. Kenya, the second highest peak in Africa. The arid northern reserves of Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba offer unique wildlife encounters with such species as the grevy’s zebra and the reticulated giraffe. In the dry season this area can hold substantial concentrations of wildlife which come to drink from the perennial waters of the Uaso Nyiro River. Fly to the world renowned Maasai Mara Reserve to witness the dynamic struggle between predator and prey in this stunningly beautiful and prolific acacia studded landscape surrounded by traditional Maasai lands. This comfortable safari features lodges, expert driver-guides and short flights to eliminate long transfers and maximize time spend on wildlife outings. Safaris are conducted in private safari outfitted minivans while in Mt. Kenya and Samburu, and shared camp vehicles in the Masai Mara.
