What We Love
- This is our home base in Africa, so we're rather partial to it. It offers everything one could ever want from an African safari: plenty of animals, ancient tribes, a diverse countryside, and a range of accommodations to meet different budgets.
- We have 50 years of history with our ground operators, which means we (AKT and our operators) can offer unparalleled insider access.
- Everyone is excited to see the “Big 5,” but we take a more holistic approach, get out of the car and search for the “Little 5” as well: the elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, buffalo weaver, rhino beetle, and ant lion.
- Kenya is a place of profound beauty and abundant wildlife both large and small—birders, welcome to paradise—but the people always steal our hearts.
Things To See & Do
- Head out on a game drive, where the odds are good for spotting lions, elephants, giraffes, cape buffalo, leopards, cheetahs, and rhinos.
- Visit the baby elephants and rhinos at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Orphanage.
- Enjoy a traditional sundowner on “Pride Rock.”
- Ride in a hot-air balloon over the Masai Mara.
- Fish and play on Lake Victoria.
- Take a helicopter to Lake Turkana.
- Learn about the ancient Samburu and Maasai cultures.
- Visit a conservation, education, or development project (schedule permitting). Read more about Anne K. Taylor Fund here.
Types of Safaris
Boutique Camps on Private Conservancies: These elegant camps have the look and feel of private homes, and guests are personally hosted by the owner or manager. People especially love their locations on private conservancies. Visitors can sometimes take tours on foot or horseback as opposed to a national park where guests must remain in their vehicles. These camps are also on or near tribal lands, making visits to local villages special excursions.
The camps offer the finest in service and accommodations featuring authentic decor built with local eco-friendly materials
Walking, Horseback, and Camel Safaris: Our specialists can arrange walking, horseback, or camel treks that give visitors a more immersive experience in the bush. Guests don't cover as much ground or see as much game as they would on a normal game drive, but when they do, they’ll remember the experience for a lifetime.
Mobile Tented Camp: Travel in a classic mobile-tented camp, like the explorers of old, to a variety of Kenya’s nature reserves and private ranches.
Add one or several of the nearby countries: Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, or Egypt.
