Vintage Kenya Safari - 7 days - GS 057AK

The Vintage Kenya Safari 7 days trip takes you to explore Maasai Mara, Kenya's most famous and finest game sanctuary. The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe. You will easily see the Big Five- lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard, and elephant. Not to mention numerous plain animals. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti park (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna. The famous Maasai tribesmen live within the dispersal area of the game reserve. Other destinations are Samburu, Naivasha, Aberdares and Lake Nakutu, all the parks are home to small and large animals includes birds and reptiles.
