Safari Magic in Kenya and Tanzania

East Africa

The Ultimate Wildlife-Watching Expedition

The neighboring East African nations of Kenya and Tanzania are among the best places on this planet to go on safari. Here, epic swaths of land under the protection of nature conservancies, game reserves and national parks are the domain of creatures of the wild.

Visitors might encounter stampeding wildebeest, grazing giraffes, families of elephants, stalking leopards and snoozing lion prides as well as spectacular birdlife, such as million-strong flocks of flamingos. Besides the glut of wildlife, these captivating countries also provide access to some of East Africa’s most recognizable tribes, including the red-cloaked Maasai and their semi-nomadic kin, the Samburu.

A safari tour around the grasslands of Kenya and Tanzania makes the perfect first-time introduction to East Africa’s incredible wildlife.

Set within its own private conservancy in Masai Mara Game Reserve, the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara offers luxury tented accommodation inside the boundaries of the wildlife-rich park. In between game drives, guided walks and horse-riding expeditions during which you can watch the drama unfold on the grasslands, chill out at the base camp’s pool, sip sundowners in a tented bar or relax in the spacious lounge.

Nairobi’s culinary scene has exploded in recent years, with a variety of excellent dining establishments setting up shop in the Kenyan capital. But even with all the new competition in town, the longstanding Open House Restaurant remains a firm favorite, attracting a loyal clientele with its delicious Indian fare.


While many wildlife-watchers are content to track animals by land, it is also possible to look down upon the Masai Mara plains from a high-flying hot air balloon.

These are only suggestions. We’ll tailor everything to suit your individual interests, budget and schedule.
