Kenya Safari

Kenya Luxury Safaris

From the wide grasslands of the Masai Mara to the majestic wildlife that roams within it, there is no place like Kenya for the classic safari. And with A&K, who pioneered the luxury safari in this very region in the 1960s, the Kenya safari becomes the experience of a lifetime.

On the Kenya luxury safari, venture deep into the Masai Mara, a reserve that contains the country's highest concentration of big game, including iconic creatures such as lion, wildebeest and elephant. Meet Maasai warriors and Samburu tribe members and learn about their traditions and skills, inextricably tied to life in the savannah. The Samburu Game Reserve, home to several rare Northern species, is another must on any Kenya camping safari.

With A&K, the Kenya safari package means days abuzz with bush walks, evening drives aboard comfortable 4x4 vehicles and nights spent under a blanket of stars. An A&K Kenya safari is also an opportunity to discover local conservation efforts, such as an elephant research center or a tree-planting community project. Experience nature's astounding beauty and the rich culture of the Mara with A&K Kenya safari packages.

Kenya Up Close

Masai Mara

The Masai Mara Game Reserve is home to 400-500 bird species and 95 animal species, including all of the great predators. The Mara lies within the territory of the Maasai, who help administer the park and protect it from poachers.


Located in arid northern Kenya, the Samburu Game Reserve borders the Ewaso Nyiro River, a key gathering area for wildlife. In addition to lion, elephant, giraffe and buffalo, it is home to several species only found north of the equator, including Grevy's zebra and the long-necked gerenuk.


Amboseli National Park lies in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain and a dramatic backdrop for one of Kenya's most spectacular displays of wildlife. Amboseli is home to some of the largest breeding elephant bulls in Africa, who share the plains with lion, leopard, cheetah, buffalo and other plains game.

Chyulu Hills

One of the youngest ranges in the world, the Chyulu Hills roll across eastern Kenya, overlooking vast grassy plains and topped by rainforest and lush meadows. With over 750,000 acres under wildlife management, the Chyulus are one of the great wilderness areas of Africa.


The Laikipia Plateau formerly consisted of farms and cattle ranches until landowners banded together to establish a conservation area. Today, Laikipia boasts an array of private game reserves and luxury safari camps, along with game populations that thrive within their protected boundaries.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy (Nanyuki)

Ol Pejeta is a 90,000-acre private wildlife habitat, located on the equator near the British-settled town of Nanyuki. Find the "Big Five" here, along with cheetah, Grevy's zebra and chimpanzee — the only chimpanzee to be found in all of Kenya.
