Location of Adventure
Group Size Limit
Approximately 1-16 Travelers
This is an independent trip arranged on a custom basis, and we can accommodate anywhere from one to approximately 16 guests in the small safari camps we recommend. Our safari vehicles accommodate a maximum of five to seven travelers, and for larger groups, we can take advantage of multiple safari vehicles, all in radio contact, to enhance our coordination of wildlife sightings among vehicles.
Our Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
We explore the wilds of Kenya in custom-built, durable 4x4 Toyota Land Cruisers or Land Rovers. In certain areas, we use open-sided vehicles with a canvas roof, offering an open field of view and protection from the elements. Built to withstand the rigors of rough roads, they provide a comfortable ride and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities for travelers. Reinforced suspension systems and spacious interiors enhance the safari experience.

There is no strenuous activity involved during this safari, though a safari vehicle frequently offers a bumpy ride. Wildlife drives often involve long hours of sitting and sometimes bouncing around. While we don't consider this strenuous, it can be uncomfortable and pose a particular type of physical demand on the body. All travelers must be able to climb into and out of the raised 4x4 trucks that we use for safari vehicles. They must also be able to walk to and from the vehicle to our camp accommodations, which sometimes involves walking over uneven ground or on boardwalks. Additionally, while any short walks are considered optional, you will get the most out of your safari experience if you can walk a mile or two over uneven ground without assistance. We recommend that all travelers have an adventurous spirit, as they will often enjoy the closest animal encounters.
Important Information About This Trip
Kenya, teeming with wildlife, is among the original safari destinations, and rightly so. Depending on the time of year and the movement of wildlife, camp selection will heavily influence the quality of your safari. Our team of professional safari consultants can help you choose the best camp combination for your specific dates. Call our experts at 800-543-8917. This itinerary takes you to Kenya's Amboseli National Park and private Kitirwa Conservancy, where elephants are abundant and closely researched for conservation. Laikipia Plateau and to an area that is home to Kenya’s largest population of black rhino, as well as elephant, cheetah, lion, leopard and the rarer Grevy's zebra, Jackson's hartebeest and Beisa oryx. The Maasai Mara is then home to world-famous wildlife, and you can experience it in both a private conservancy and national reserve setting.
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive Nairobi, Kenya anytime on Day 1. We often recommend coming in a day early to adjust to the time difference before embarking on your safari. Depending on your return flight time from the Maasai Mara on the final day, you can typically depart Nairobi after 5 pm. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of these programs and can arrange the most efficient and cost-effective travel.
