From the snow-capped peaks of Mt Kilimanjaro to orange-hued sunsets splashed across the savannah of the Masai Mara, Kenya is a country that’s simply begging to be explored.

If you’re looking to picnic on the plains, our Kenya and Tanzania Adventure offers an unparalleled experience, where you will encounter elephants, wildebeest, giraffes and leopards. From the Amboseli National Park to glistening views of Lake Manyara, you’ll soon find our Kenya safari holidays offer the ultimate African safari experience.
Masai Mara safaris: Undoubedly one of the best locations for an African safari holiday, the Masai Mars National Reserve is home to Maasai communities whose rituals and ancient traditions remain an integral part of their everyday life. Once fearful warriors, their life is now dominated by the need to tend and protect their cattle: proud Maasai men in bright-red cloaks carry long spears to lead their herds across the vast grasslands in search of water and pastures. And then there are the animals…
Lake Nakuru safaris: A large soda lake carpeted with thousands of pink flamingo, Lake Nakuru is an awe-inspiring sight made even more spectacular when the birds take flight, forming a great pink cloud above the shimmering water. A Kenya safari tour to Lake Nakuru National Park will live long in the memory. An important sanctuary for the black and white rhino – often be seen at rest near the lake shore and under acacia trees – Nakuru is also likely to offer up sightings of huge herds of zebra and buffalo, prides of lions and wandering giraffes, and possibly a lone leopard…
The Sacred Realm of Mount Kenya: Africa’s second highest peak, Mount Kenya is regarded as the sacred realm of Ngai, the god of the local Kikuyu people, and known as the ‘place of light’. It’s an inspiring sight best viewed at dawn when illuminated by the sun’s early rays. Kenya safari holidays don’t have to just be about wildlife. Trekking fans will be drawn to the challenging granite cliffs and volcanic rock of Mount Kenya’s snow-capped peak.
Life on the Great Rift Valley: Step out onto the Rift Valley’s open plains and you’ll feel a million times smaller than you ever have before. Drive by a pride of lions in a 4WD safari vehicle, watch a herd of elephants from the back of a horse, or spot some of the 400 species of bird-life around the sparkling lakes of Navaisha and Nakuru.
The trip content is very varied and if you love wildlife, wildflowers and fungi this is a great trip. Wild European Brown bear watching in the forest and the bear sanctuary was brilliant. Local hikes in the rugged countryside- Barza valley; Coja, Pestera and Postavarul nature reserve were wonderful. Brasov and Bran castle visits were informative and took you back to the past.
We first booked this trip for Sep 2020 but due to the pandemic we postponed it twice. It was well worth the wait! As a child I watched all the David Attenborough wildlife documentaries and so I had always wanted to visit Botswana. To me words like Chobe, Zambezi and Okovango were shorthand for the most beautiful and wildlife rich places to dream of visiting. This trip more than lived up to all my expectations. Botswana was absolutely teeming with wildlife – you literally see giraffes and elephants regularly along the highway, right up close.
We have been on several holidays with Exodus and this trip was up with the best! We were astounded by the amount of wildlife we saw on the 10 day trip. The gorillas were the obvious highlight for us but we didn’t expect to get so close. There were two silverbacks, one blackback, four females and two babies, some of which came within touching distance of us. The trackers and trekkers couldn’t do enough to make our encounter special and we felt privilidged to be in this beautiful and remote part of the country. No matter what your level of fitness, the guides made it possible for everyone to reach a family of gorillas and sightings were just about 100 % guaranteed. The chimps encounter was also amazing and again so close up. Aa well as these two days, the rest of the holiday did not disappoint as we embarked upon safaris in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and Kibale forest spotting hippos, buffalos,elephants, lions, giraffes and we were lucky enough to see two leopards and a tree climbing lion. We embarked on two cultural tours in the community and saw how the villages lived and worked and were overwhelmed by their friendliness towards us. The whole trip was an immersion into culture and wildlife and it was hard to believe what we saw and experienced in less than two weeks. Our guides, Robert and Sam were excellent and worked so hard on our behalf and everyone in the hotels were very accommodating, looking after our every need. There were some superb hotels on this trip and only one didn’t come up to the mark. There were some long transfers during the holiday but the scenery and culture seen along the way helped pass the journey and Robert and Sam were great at stopping frequently for breaks and leg stretching!! If you want to experience the culture and wildlife of this vast and beautiful country, don’t hesitate to book. You will not be disappointed!!
