9 Days Kenya Road Safari
Our 9 Days Kenya Road Safari is an exciting wildlife holiday Safari for travelers with limited time away from home yet who desire an in-depth safari experience. Devoted exclusively to Kenya, in less than two weeks we touch upon nearly all of the region’s highlights while enjoying exceptional wildlife throughout.

An African safari is about the animals…thundering herds, thousands of creatures on the plains, in the craters and in the jungle. All of Africa pulses with the sights and sounds of the last true paradise left on earth.

But sometimes there can be more to a safari than just wildlife. On that rare and wonderful occasion, there can be splendor and elegance beyond your wildest imagination. Below we provide details of this program and the tale of our inspiration for this exquisite journey.
