On this fully customizable Kenya safari tour, discover Africa’s abundant wildlife, from herds of wildebeest and elephants to the lone leopard stalking its prey. Under a boundless sapphire sky, migrating herds move like an undulating blanket into the horizon. On International Expeditions’ custom Kenya Wildlife Safaris, you experience life on the plains as you explore signature nature parks and reserves. Savor the eons-old spectacle of East Africa’s legendary herds, predators, vibrant tribes and arresting landscapes on a classic Kenya wildlife safari that will leave no traveler unchanged.
Travel Off the Beaten Path
Drawing on more than 30 years of safari travel tradition, IE’s custom Kenya Wildlife Safaris can combine the storied Masai Mara Reserve, home to Kenya’s migration, with less frequented natural treasures. During your Kenya safari, travel to Sweetwaters Game Reserve, part of East Africa’s largest black rhino preserve. You could also decide to spend two nights at Lake Nakuru National Park, a birdwatcher’s paradise that’s home to 400 recorded bird species and serves as an important stop for migratory birds as they head to and from Europe.
Helping You Find More Wildlife
IE’s Kenya safaris capture the very essence of the legendary African safari! In a land teeming with wildlife, this Kenya safari tours parks where you can spot the “Big Five” — lion, elephant, buffalo, black rhino and leopard — as well as Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, white rhino and Rothschild’s giraffe, introduced from South Africa. No other Kenya safari exposes you to this much wildlife!
Create Cultural Connections
Explore East Africa’s rich tapestry of life and culture as you learn about tribal custom during a Maasai village visit guided by elders, discuss modern life with your local expert safari guides, and even connect with Africa’s children while visiting their school. Plus, because IE partners with the Travel Foundation’s Masai Mara Project, you are helping to bring schools, healthcare and rainwater harvesting systems to the villagers of the Mara Triangle just by joining our Kenya Wildlife Safari!

Options and Extras
What visas are required for travel to Kenya?
U.S. and Canadian citizens are required to have a visa to enter Kenya. Your Kenya visa is best obtained upon arrival at Nairobi International Airport (NBO). This is a very easy and cost effective way to obtain your visa and we highly recommend it. Just follow the signs for visa on arrival at NBO upon your arrival for your Kenya Wildlife Safari. The present cost is $25 USD per person, per visa. However in April 2009, Kenya announced that they will waive the visa fee for children under 16. Payment needs to be exact USD $25 in USD. Note that credit cards, Canadian dollars, traveler’s checks, and personal checks are not accepted. There are no passport photos required.
Are vaccinations required for Kenya safari tours?
Proof of yellow fever vaccination is required to enter Kenya only if arriving from a yellow fever affected area. Kenya and Tanzania are yellow fever affected areas so arrival into Kenya from Tanzania requires proof of yellow fever vaccination. No other immunizations are required. The CDC recommends that all travelers to East Africa be up-to-date on vaccinations for measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus (DPT), poliovirus, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, yellow fever and typhoid; however, you should consult with your personal physician.
How much luggage can guests bring on a Kenya safari?
Guests are limited to one soft-sided bag per person. Luggage is carried with guests in the vehicles on all transfers. Because we will be flying from the Mara to Nairobi, there is a strict 33 lb. limit for luggage. Bags must be soft-sided. International Expeditions takes no responsibility for overweight bags or charges for them.
