Adventure, Nature & Wildlife, Culture & History

Experience some of the best wildlife and landscapes that Kenya has to offer without travelling more than a few hours out of Nairobi. Start in the capital with a mood-boosting visit to one of its baby elephant sanctuaries before heading north to the country’s highest mountain, Mount Kenya, and view this dramatic landscape as you soar above the peaks in a helicopter. From here, travel west to Lake Nakuru. Here you’ll see a huge range of wildlife and, if you’re lucky, its famous colourful carpet of pink flamingoes feeding in the lake.
