Meet Africa’s Nomadic People – The Maasai and Samburu..Touch a moment of safari magic You may see them by the roadside during your safari travels in Kenya – tall, lean, and brilliantly adorned in their bright reds and blues. Their cattle are always nearby. These are the Maasai and the closely related Samburu peoples – the oldest tribes of East Africa. This may well be the standout experience of your safari adventure.

The Ultimate Open-Air Restaurant Think of an African safari in Kenya, Tanzania or both and you’ll picture wide-open savannahs alive with lions on the prowl, cheetahs racing over the plains, or great majestic elephants lumbering to nearby watering holes. But do you your safari thoughts include a memorable dining experience? Probably not. You might not even think the food on the safari would be very notable. But, you'd be mistaken because the cuisine you'll find on your adventure in Africa will easily beat your expectations.
Between January and March, this is the timeless phenomenon that plays out on the southern plains of the Serengeti, when two million wildebeests herd in from the Masai Mara, attracted to the fresh green fields, replenished by recent rains. They'll need the nourishment found here as it is calving season when hundreds of thousands of wildebeests will be born. Over these few short months, close to half a million newborn calves will drop onto the grasses of the fertile Serengeti, as many as 8,000 a day. And they are not alone; other grazers too, give birth during this special time – thousands of zebras, Thompson's gazelle, and eland, instinctively using the numerical safety of the wildebeests to help protect their own.
From Serengeti in Tanzania to Masai Mara In Kenya....And Then Back Again, In One Epic Circle.. There is nothing to equal it on the planet. An immense, herding mass of wildlife, by the millions, plodding forward in an ageless route of survival. The search for taller and fresher grasses sends these hordes of grazers – wildebeests, zebras, gazelle, and others – on a constant migration throughout the twelve months of the year, creating a cycle as predictable as the seasons themselves. The entire journey hums with expectant drama, not only because of the intense masses of wildlife but also because the cycles of birth and death play out along the route.
Everything on safari is larger than life: the sprawling landscapes, the magnificent big cats, the enormous elephants, and giraffes… and yes, even its celebrated Happy Hour – known as The Sundowner. Imagine, you’ve spent a very full day rumbling over savannahs, through the bush, over the hills, and deep in the forest, witnessing every form of wildlife in their natural setting. You’ve marveled, you’ve photographed, and you’ve seen more big game than you’ve thought possible. Now, the softening light of late afternoon is settling about and it’s time to catch your breath.
It is the time of the night safari – when the heat of the day dissipates and is replaced by gentle breezes, starlight, and the moon casting its cool shadows upon the land. With your safari guide in your 4 x 4 Jeep, you can move purposefully on the savannah or through the bush, until the lit eyes of a lion, leopard, or other night-prowling creature stare back at you through the inky dark. Bundled up with your blanket and thermos, a night game drive can take on a feeling of tingling anticipation as the sounds of a big cat, a hippo, or the scurrying nearby of some unseen creature remind you to move quietly as you have entered their nocturnal realm.
Want to reduce your carbon footprint while on safari? You can and you’ll be helping to reforest Kenya’s natural habitats. Trees are a life-giving force, protecting the land, the air, the water, the wildlife, the birds… and the communities of people who depend on the cooling shade and fuel they provide. You can be a part of this campaign with just a small amount of time taken from your safari day to help. Just imagine: enjoying the wildlife and then helping them and their biosphere to survive. We’ll explain how below.
We’re often told that it’s our technology that harms the wildlife populations of the natural world. But here’s a tech innovation that’s actually protecting our precious lions, rhinos, cheetahs, and other threatened species. And you can be a part of it on your African safari adventure. We’re talking about the development of lightweight radio collars which are gently worn on big cats and rhinos, to track their movements, helping to protect them from poachers and alerting nearby herders to minimize human-wildlife conflict.
Everything about Africa is unique, unexpected, and in numbers and variety that never fail to surprise. This is especially true of the universe of birds to be found on safari in Kenya & Tanzania. Up in the sky, in the trees, on the lakeshores, and assembled before you on the fields, Africa’s dazzling gift of birdlife can be astonishing for first-time visitors. Imagine in a single day spotting a hundred species – from great white pelicans and storks to vibrant pink flamingoes, from vultures and raptor eagles to graceful ibis and herons. While all about, colorful warbling songbirds like starlings, doves, blue turacos, and guineafowl fill the air with their coos, calls, and light melodies. Africa and especially Kenya and Tanzania are a birdwatcher’s paradise with its varied landscapes of savannahs, grasslands, forests, and wetlands – each habitat supporting a colorful range of bird types like bee-eaters, sunbirds, parrots, cranes, and fish eagles. Both countries boast over 1000 species so the birding on your African safari will be rich, active, and lots of fun.
Traveling in comfort on Kenya’s swift Express train to the coast is like taking a ride through history. Rail travel, especially this route, has a special place in the hearts of Kenyans. The introduction of trains brought Kenya into the modern age, improving commerce and the lives of its people, creating towns along its route and even the capital of Nairobi. A ride on the state-of-the-art Madaraka Express is just the latest development of Kenyans’ love affair with its trains. For visitors and safari-goers, this modern rail experience will whisk you from Nairobi to the balmy Kenya coast in record time, even passing through two national parks along the way. Imagine relaxing in air-conditioned comfort as you gaze through the train’s large windows at the passing landscapes… but not just any fields. You’ll be traveling through the historic Tsavo East and West National Parks, with the opportunity to spot elephants, giraffes, and even big cats like lions and cheetahs! What an unspoiled way to travel on your African safari.
Lions. Leopards. Cheetahs. Elephants. Giraffes. Rhinos. Wildebeests. And Zebras. To see them up close is always startling and dramatic. You want to linger over this wildlife, to somehow capture the electric instant you “meet”. Naturally, you reach for your camera and compose your frame. Your 4 x4 Jeep is perfectly positioned to catch the best angle and that gleam in the elephant’s eye. And just like that, you’ve made time stand still… a moment soon to be shared with friends and family. This is the beauty of a safari and especially our photographic safaris in Kenya and Tanzania. We know just how to get you up close to that skittish herd of gazelles or an elusive leopard lurking overhead, the sun’s last rays lighting up its spotted coat.
Why are families a natural fit for wildlife safaris? And why do our children have such a natural appreciation for animals? Could it be that we see something of ourselves at the sight of a mother cheetah and her cubs? Does that family of elephants, protecting their small youngsters as they march to a watering hole remind us of our own caring instincts? Whatever it is about animal families that stirs within us something deep and comforting, these feelings are only enhanced when we share the wonders found on a safari adventure with our own families. No matter if family means very young children, school-aged kids, teens, or three generations traveling to Africa, a family safari is a wonderful time of discovery and appreciation not just of the wildlife but of each other.
Now add the adventure of racing cheetahs, prowling leopards, and marauding lions over the savannah. If you are romantic – and we know you are – and adventurous, no place but East Africa will fill you with such an overflowing blend of the two. Imagine, tracking the big cats, immense elephants, and delightful giraffes on the golden savannahs by day and then settling into your cozy tented camp or sleeping under a diamond sky at night… lulled to sleep by the chirps and calls of nature’s melodies all about. Our personalized safaris in Kenya and Tanzania will create an unforgettable beginning for your new life together.
We all know that nature is the best healer. Feeling the sunlight and the soft breezes from the plains, the forests, and the lakes is the best tonic for our health. Add to these magical landscapes Africa’s beautiful giraffes, elephants, leopards, gazelles, and more to this natural tapestry and you have the ingredients for an energizing safari experience. Now imagine being in this setting with all of nature’s endless gifts and bringing a mindful physical, emotional, and mediative intention to your day. For instance: Picture yoga at dawn overlooking a sunrise upon a glowing savannah, the early morning grazers wandering into the fields. Or perhaps a meditation session nestled in a green acacia forest, with the sounds of a nearby waterfall and the calls of birdlife all about. Let us introduce you to another type of safari – a special journey of discovery – of the fantastical natural world all around and of the amazing worlds lying deep within us.
