Magical Kenya 4x4 Safari
from $2,999 per person
- In resort assistance & 24 hour contact center
With a maximum of just seven passengers on each safari, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy views from your own window seat – great for photography, as well as viewing the wildlife. Over the course of seven days, you will visit the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, Samburu and Aberdare National Parks, as well as the Elephant Orphanage. Many safari vacations do not use 4x4 vehicles which will not offer the same once-in-a-lifetime viewing experience offered by Tropical Sky. By choosing our Magical Kenya package, you really are in for the vacation of a lifetime.
In 2014, our Magical Kenya Safari will depart every Thursday. The itinerary differs slightly to that detailed below – please call our Sales Team for full details.
The Magical Kenya Safari may form part of other safaris. Other customers may join the safari on a Wednesday or a Monday. Our private 4x4 vehicle can also be booked for exclusive use, ensuring that this magnificent experience is completely private and tailored to you. This can be arranged from a supplement, based on four adults traveling.
**Please note: We recommend a private vehicle for families traveling with younger children. For ideas on family-friendly safari vacations, please call a member of our dedicated team.**
You will be greeted at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport upon your arrival. After clearance with customs, board our minivan safari vehicle for your transfer to the Tribe Hotel for check-in and refreshments. Please note, check-in is available from 12 noon, however, subject to availability, you may be able to check-in earlier. You can choose whether to relax and unwind after your flight in preparation for your adventure ahead, or you may wish to pre-book lunch or dinner (at extra cost) at the Carnivore Restaurant or perhaps an afternoon visit to the Giraffe Sanctuary.
