Kenya Classic 4x4 Safari

Call us for prices & availability

Overview

This exciting six-night safari takes in both the Masai Mara and Amboseli, the two most iconic game viewing areas in Kenya. This safari is carefully designed to allow the maximum quality game viewing time possible within the economies of a driving rather than a flying safari. Starting and finishing in Nairobi, this safari operates every week, making it an easy itinerary to combine with a beach stay along the Mombasa coast or Zanzibar.

The safari starts on a Sunday, and you’ll stay at three game locations: Masai Mara Game Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park and Amboseli National Park. The 4x4 purpose-built safari vehicle takes up to seven people on each journey, so you’re guaranteed excellent views, and all the safari lodges have pools for relaxing in between your busy safari schedule.

Important Luggage Restriction: Soft Sided Bags only, with max weight of 15kg. Larger bags for your onward journey to a beach location can be stored in Nairobi for a small fee.

ARP 0701B

We recommend you consider the upgraded version of this tour which utilises Serena Hotels in all areas other than the Masai Mara which remains the same. Prices for this upgrade are from £400pp
