Classic Safari in Kenya

Classic Safari in Kenya

According to Abbreviationfinder, a classic safari in Kenya is one of the most original you can do! This is where the safari originated and even today the wild, African, iconic animals roam freely in protected nature areas. In Kenya, no hunting is allowed and therefore you can get very close to the animals. You travel in a private land cruiser with a professional English-speaking safari guide who is also your driver during the safari. Accommodation in small, personal camps with the least possible impact on the sensitive environment. For the first-time traveler or family safari, a classic safari in Kenya is something we recommend. The largest city in Kenya is Nairobi based on census from Allcitypopulation.

FLIGHT SAFARI MASAI MARA

Flight Safari Masai Mara National Reserve! If you have limited time or want to avoid Kenya’s sometimes tough roads out to the national parks, a flight safari to the legendary Masai Mara National Reserve is an excellent choice. You fly from Wilson Airport and land in the Masai Mara after about 1 hour in the air. You then ride the camp’s own safari vehicle on game drives, morning and afternoon. It is a very comfortable safari but still adventurous and seeing the soft, rolling hills of the Masai Mara National Reserve on the approach is just an experience in itself!
