Kenya’s Best Safari Itineraries Our Curated Selection Of The Best Safari Itineraries In Kenya

Make like a giraffe and browse our thoughtfully curated collection of Kenya’s best safari itineraries, among Africa’s best safari itineraries. See which elements capture your imagination, and the Art of Safari team will be delighted to help you design your own bespoke Kenya itinerary.

The country’s diversity means that Kenya’s best safari itineraries are almost as limitless as the plains. Choose to focus purely on wildlife experiences, or combine these with downtime down at the coast.

Follow in the hoofprints of the herds on some of the best Masai Mara safaris or point your nose to a northern star and seek out the ‘Samburu Special Five’ on the best safaris in Northern Kenya.

Look for elephant in the shadows of Africa’s grandest mountain by signing up for one of our best Amboseli safaris, or exercise your option to slow things down and enjoy Kenya at a more relaxed pace.

The emphasis on walking, hide and horseback experiences makes our best Chyulu Hills safaris the ideal lower tempo choice – without compromising on your wilderness experience.

To have the beach within easy reach, make the very most of the Indian Ocean coast on our best Kenya beach escapes

By combining the best Kenyan lodges with unforgettable experiences, we’ve created a range of safaris to satisfy every safari-goer, whether your interests are pixels or Blixen.

You’ll see that the Masai Mara features strongly – it is after all arguably Africa’s most iconic piece of real estate – but by blending it with differing combinations of the more arid reaches of northern Kenya, the restored ranchlands of Laikipia and the white, powdery beaches of Kenya’s south coast, we’ve been able to create options for everyone. Everyone, that is, who appreciates the finer things that life on safari has to offer.

The guest area at Elephant Watch Camp provides a cheerful sanctuary from the wild Samburu National Reserve.
