Kenya has some of the best known safari locations in Africa which is why so many wildlife documentaries have been filmed in Kenya. When comparing Kenya to other safari destinations such as Botswana, Zambia and Tanzania the quality of safari can be poor as many of the main areas are dominated by big lodges and plenty of minibuses. For a real quality safari in Kenya one has to plan very carefully. Our specialists know where the crowds go, and will tailor-make an itinerary that avoids them. A must for most visitors should be the Masai Mara which consistently offers an incredible safari experience.
