This Kenya wildlife highlights safari takes you on a wonderful journey to explore Kenya’s great wildlife diversity and landscapes.

This trip starts and ends in Kenya’s capital city – Nairobi. We’ll start the safari with a trip to Amboseli National Park where you will see a lot of animals and birds as well as the wonderful views of Mount Kilimanjaro in neighboring Tanzania.

From Amboseli, we’ll drive to Aberdare National Park for some more wildlife game viewing. You will then continue to Ol Pejeta Wildlife Conservancy where you can see many animals, especially the last 2 remaining northern white rhinos in the world.

We’ll continue the safari by going to Lake Nakuru National Park where you will enjoy wildlife viewing of several animals, and birds – most especially the large flock of flamingos.

After Nakuru, we’ll go to the Masai Mara National Reserves for even more wildlife viewing experiences in this legendary wilderness ecosystem. In Masai Mara, you will go on yet some more game drives to see the animals.

If your trip is around the great migration, you will get to enjoy the Masai Mara’s most popular and dramatic event as more than 1 million animals cross from the Serengeti into Kenya. On this trip, you will see so many animals such as lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, kudu, flamingos and so much more.

This trip is ideal for anyone who is interested in seeing lots of African wildlife in several environments. Take a look at our detailed day-by-day breakdown to get a better idea of how this would feel for you.

As with all our safari packages, we can customize this Kenya wildlife highlights safari program to fit your personal preferences. Just reach out to us and we’ll be eager to help you.
