Safari in Kenya
KENYA EXPLORER SAFARI
nights & 7 days discovering kenya
· best season
A camping safari staying in small private mobile camps is
one of the best ways to experience Kenya's natural attractions.
The safari has been designed to include a variety of habitat
so that the widest diversity of wildlife can be seen. The camps
are sited in private conservancies so that walking and night
drives may be taken but are also conveniently located for easy
access to Amboseli and Nakuru national parks and the Mara.
Transport is by four-wheel-drive Toyota Landcruiser with roof
hatches. Your driver-guide is a wildlife and nature expert and
member of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association.
A safari cook travels with the safari. At each camp site we
will have staff who do the work like washing up, heating water
for showers, doing the cooking and serving the food but clients
also help put up and take down their tents. Equipment is carried
in a trailer behind the vehicle - when in camp the trailer is
removed and game drives are done in the vehicle. Tents are heavy-duty
canvas dome tents for 2 persons. Clients bring their own sleeping
bag and a towel but all other camp furniture and equipment is
provided. Food is of the same quality as in a luxury camp -
produced by an experienced safari cook. Camps are set up on
exclusive campsites. Drinks other than mineral water are not
included but a stop is made en route to each camp to enable
you to buy wine, beer or soft drinks as required.
