In Kenya’s native Swahili, the word ‘safari’ translates to ‘journey’ and this land - which inspired some of Ernest Hemingway’s greatest classics - is Africa’s quintessential safari destination. However, there’s more to see here than just the beautiful scenery – the country is rich in diverse cultures, sumptuous cuisine, as well as modern cities and bustling marketplaces. Kenya’s culture of respect will mark your trip.
Whether you join us in the wild plains of the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve, or in the rolling hills of Limuru, you can pursue your passion for conservation, big cats, education or healthcare.
