A family safari following the journey of “The Lion King” starting and ending in Nairobi, Kenya – 10 days. 

Tour Highlights:

NairobiThe vibrant and exciting capital of Kenya is also the 4th largest city in Africa. In addition to its cosmopolitan urban jungle, a large, wildlife-abundant game reserve sits right on its doorstep. Nairobi National Park is well-known for its rhinos, leopards, lions, buffalo, as well as large populations of giraffe, wildebeest, eland and Thompson’s gazelle.

Ol Pejeta ConservancyApart from the Masai Mara, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy has the highest density of wildlife in Kenya. Situated on the equator west of Nanyuki, it holds the honour of being the largest sanctuary for endangered black rhinos in East Africa and is the only place in the whole of Kenya to see cheeky chimpanzees.

Lake Nakuru National ParkThe majestic Lake Nakuru lies in Kenya’s Rift Valley and is elevated 1754 metres above sea level. A highly protected area, the lake is a breeding ground for one of the largest concentrations of flamingos in the world, and is also one of the few areas in East Africa that is home to both the white and black rhinos.

Lake NaivashaThis freshwater lake in lies north west of Nairobi, and is a popular highlight when going on safari in the area. Full of hippos and surrounded by papyrus, this beautiful lake also has excellent birdlife and even an island shaped in a crescent where it’s possible to walk with wildlife.

Masai MaraThe legendary Masai Mara together with Tanzania’s Serengeti form one of Africa’s most well-known wildlife areas. The connection of the two allows for massive herds of wildebeest to move freely between the parks during the Great Migration. The region is also widely known for its indigenous herders, the beautifully beaded and red-robed Masaai people; and of course the Big Five.
