Kenya: A Classic Safari with Nairobi & Amboseli (QKY)

12 Day Tour from Nairobi to Nairobi

2023 Tour Details

When’s the last time you laughed like a hyena? Pack your khakis, greys, and greens and get ready for the ride of your life—or rides, rather! This classic African safari vacation packs in 13 game drives to see lion, leopard, zebra, giraffe, and countless other creatures of Kenya’s most famous national parks and wildlife reserves. Come face to face with adventure in custom-made 6-person 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles manned by expert safari guides. Take in the best views of the “Big 5,” the Samburu “Special 5,” and every impala, ostrich, and gazelle in between—all in their natural habitats. Need to slow down and put on the brakes? Sumptuous safari lodges and comfortable tented camps, breakfast in the bush, and late day sundowner drinks present the perfect opportunities to rest near the rhinos, raise a mimosa to the monkeys, and say cheers to the cheetahs. Just try to camouflage your excitement.

Explore more on your tour of Africa with Monograms packages to Nairobi and Amboseli National Park. In Nariboi, feed endangered giraffes at the Giraffe Center and meet orphaned elephant calves at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Get ready for big game, grand views, and even grander memories in Amboseli National Park. Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, this massive elephant stomping ground is one of Africa’s best places to get up close to large herds in a variety of habitats.
