For those who have longed to visit East Africa but cannot find the time or sufficient funds, the W&L Traveller’s latest trip to Kenya may represent an irresistible opportunity. Indeed, this is a bargain that we’re delighted to make available: we’ve matched our 2008 Kenya safari price and included roundtrip air from Washington, D.C.!
If you want to combine the best of African wildlife with the comfort, sophistication, and security of East Africa’s excellent game lodges, Kenya is both the most accessible and the most reliable. Here you’ll find the Big Five— lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and cape buffalo—at home in the fenceless immensity of the Serengeti. In the vast stillness of the Maasai Mara, one of the earth’s largest natural game preserves, you’ll observe the big cats stalking wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle moving in herds as large as a lake. You’ll come upon families of hippos wallowing in the tree-lined rivers that ribbon through the savannas, and, in one of earth’s largest skies, the most amazing variety of birds anywhere on the planet. You’ll also learn about several wildlife conservation efforts that are helping to assure the health and abundance of East African wildlife for future generations.
A safari in Kenya offers more than just another wildlife tour, but a journey into the heart of nature. On the immense arena of the Serengeti, where a million animals still live in total freedom, the drama of creation plays out each day. Happily, you’ll still be able to sleep at night, for the accommodations that we’ve included are excellent throughout. For those wishing to extend their visit, this safari offers an optional pre-tour extension at Amboseli National Park in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This year, give yourself and your loved ones the gift of the wild kingdom.
