Few safari destinations evoke the classic romance of Kenya. With its sprawling savannas hosting great herds of game, alkaline lakes dotted with flamingoes, lacy acacia forests and snowcapped volcanoes, Kenya offers a diverse mosaic of nature encounters. The renowned Maasai Mara is home to the Big Five, while the Laikipia Plateau harbors endangered rhinos and many unique subspecies. Kenya's green season is a most appealing time for a safari, when visitor numbers are low and light rains transform the dry, dusty bush into a sea of emerald grass. Towering clouds create dramatic skies and exciting photography backdrops. Because we stay in remote areas in private mobile camps, you’ll enjoy a secluded experience that evokes the Kenya of a century ago, immortalized by Karen Blixen in her memoir Out of Africa. Flights between locations enhance your time with wildlife, rather than in transit, and private open-air vehicles with just six guests per truck ensure low-key, highly personal encounters with Kenya's legendary wildlife. 

Trip Highlights

  • Quiet Season in the Maasai MaraAway from crowds, scout for the Big Five including abundant lions, and watch great herds of game roam the wildest sectors of Kenya's most famous reserve
  • Endangered Rhinos on a Private ReserveSee black and white rhinos and other rare species on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a global conservation leader on the Laikipia Plateau 
  • Private Mobile Camps Enhance SolitudeEnjoy peace of mind and spirit on a classic safari designed to enhance seclusion while recreating the romantic ambience of an earlier era

Discover the Wonders of Kenya...in Exceptional Solitude

At a time when travelers are seeking meaningful experiences in more intimate contexts, this safari is tailored to provide exactly that. Small groups have always been the best way to explore Africa, and Kenya during the vibrant green season offers an even quieter encounter. Here's what you can expect:

  1. Private Nat Hab Safari Camps
    Your accommodations at our luxury mobile camps are exclusively for Nat Hab guests on this safari alone. You won't share the camps with anyone other than our small group. Because these deluxe camps are mobile, we can place them where wildlife numbers are highest...and other travelers are nowhere to be found.
  2. Three Flights Between Locations
    We use small planes to transfer you between our camps, instead of subjecting you to long, dusty drives. This means more time on safari, doing what you came to Africa for: viewing wildlife!
  3. Just Six Travelers Per Safari Truck
    We never fill our 4x4 safari vehicles to capacity—each will accommodate just six guests on game drives, which also means an open side seat for every traveler. 
  4. The Beauty of the Green Season
    Along the equator in Africa, seasons are defined by moisture levels. When the short rains arrive, they turn the Maasai Mara from cracked, dry savanna to verdant grasslands. This is the green season, when an abundance of water, grazing and taller grass to hide from predators makes this the perfect time for many mammals to birth their young. Migrant birds also enter the area in large numbers, adding to the flurry of resident species. Dramatic skies with shifting clouds and bursts of light breaking through, carpets of flowers on the ground, and intermittent rainfall to dispel the dust create marvelous conditions for photography. 
  5. Extra Luggage Allowance
    Most airlines and safari companies in East Africa strictly limit luggage to 33 pounds per guest, including carry-on bags. We have arranged a special luggage allowance of 44 pounds per guest, making it easier to travel comfortably without leaving behind essential items you need.
  6. The World's Finest Safari Guides
    Natural Habitat Adventures is known worldwide for employing the finest naturalist guides on the planet! In Kenya, our Safari Expedition Leaders are the most highly trained guides in East Africa, dedicated to providing exceptional personal service. With our groups from beginning to end, our Expedition Leaders average more than 15 years' experience each. Their training is further enhanced by WWF's top scientists. See Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
  7. Our Quality-Value Guarantee Ensures A Superior Safari Experience
    Natural Habitat Adventures offers an exclusive guarantee, which clearly states that we will meet the lofty expectations we set forth in our promotional materials. To our knowledge, this is the most ambitious guarantee made by any adventure travel company. Read our important promise.
  8. Feel Good About Your Carbon-Neutral Journey
    We care deeply about our planet, as we know you do. When you travel with us, the carbon emissions from your trip are 100% offset—including your round-trip flights from home. Natural Habitat Adventures has been the world’s first carbon-neutral travel company since 2007.
