Savvy travelers and novices include Kenya on their list of dream destinations, and for good reason. Kenya is blessed with an abundance of spectacular wildlife and lavishly gorgeous, incredibly photogenic landscapes. The people are friendly and welcoming everywhere, from the teeming cities to the plains of the Masai Mara. Tourist infrastructure is impressive, often offering white glove service where the basics of running water and electricity appear impossible to find. Game reserves are magnificent, filled with wildlife, beautiful lakes and beaches, and sweeping vistas that seem to go on forever.

With more than 50 parks to choose from in Kenya alone, it's hard to decide where to go. But everyone agrees that the Masai Mara and Samburu parks are must-visit sites. Our Kenya Wildlife Safari includes them both plus a lot more! And like all Friendly Planet tours, you'll enjoy the best of Kenya at prices that are as amazing as the country. 

If you want even more iconic Africa, see our Kenya Wildlife Express with Victoria Falls!

1. All visitors to Kenya must obtain ETA before departure. This price is approximate, based on Kenya’s Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) system.

So that we can offer you the best deals, our packages are, like most hotels and cruises, priced based on double occupancy rooms or cabins. We charge solo travelers an extra fee to cover the extra costs of single occupancy rooms or cabins. (Consider: if you booked a $200/night hotel room solo, you would pay the $200 yourself; but if a couple booked the same room, each one would pay only $100.) But you only pay extra for the rooms or cabins, nothing else, including meals, sightseeing, tips, etc. Why are single rooms more?
