12 Days Kenya Private Safari


Item Code: 86-2415

The incredible wildlife in Kenya’s national parks and reserves is enough to make anyone’s heart race, even if they normally have no interest in animals. See the “Big 5″—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo—in their natural habitats with the help of your knowledgeable Driver/Guide. Extend your imagination in the company of graceful giraffes and ill-mannered hyenas, and satisfy your urge for speed by watching cheetahs, gazelles, and large herds run wild. Zebra-spotting will help you earn your stripes, while the hunt for a black rhino will give you a rush.

There will be time for safari in the magnificent shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro during your stay in the Amboseli National Park region. Traveling through Africa with Independence by Globus allows you to rediscover your inner wild child while also treating you like royalty on a safari and giving you enough of downtime to reflect on your place in the grand scheme of things.
