2022 Johannesburg > Nairobi

Are you game?

There are simply thousands of good reasons to visit Kenya. And you’ll find that many of them travel in herds.
In fact, you’ll be overcome by the sheer number of wildlife on offer, from large communities of wild elephant, prides of lions and the annual Great Wildebeest Migration to the huge variety of gazelle and antelope that swarm the open plains. And when you’ve had your fill of days spent in Africa’s savannah paradise, and nights cocooned in the incredible ambience of the African bush, you can look forward to unique visits to tribal villages, not to mention witnessing one of the most spectacular landmarks on the continent – the wondrous Victoria Falls.
