What to Expect

     Imagine you wake up to the sound of lions chatting away in the distance and elephants having a pool party. You sip your coffee and think, “This is the life!”

     We will kick off in Nairobi, where not only will we experience the culture of the city but we are going to the Elephant Orphanage, where you’ll get up close with the cutest giants you’ll ever meet. We even get to help feed them.  Next, we’re off to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the rhino rockstars’ home turf. Actually home to the last two Northern White Rhinos which is epic and I hope we get to see them. It’s not just about the rhinos, though; it’s a sanctuary for all kinds of wildlife. Get your camera ready—these guys are ready for their close-up.

     Then it is a splash of pink at Lake Nakuru, where flamingos turn the lake into a feathered sea. And don’t forget the Thompson Waterfall—nature’s own shower, and way better than any filter. No Kenyan safari is complete without the Masai Mara. It’s where the real action is, and you’re in the director’s chair. Capture the lions, the cheetahs, and if you’re lucky, the Great Migration. It’s the circle of life, and you’ve got a front-row seat. 

     We also get to take a detour to a Maasai village. It’s a cultural deep-dive into one of the world’s most fascinating communities. Their stories, their dances, their way of life—it’s humanity in its most beautiful form. Before we say goodbye, there’s Lake Naivasha. Think of it as the after-party where the hippos are the guests of honor. A boat ride here isn’t just a ride; it’s the final scene in your epic safari movie. 

BUT.......

     As the sun sets on your Kenyan safari, you’ll carry more than just photographs; you’ll carry a renewed sense of wonder and a deeper understanding of the world’s natural beauty. This journey will leave a mark on your soul, as each encounter with the wild reminds you of the delicate balance of life. It’s an experience that will shape your perspective, inspire your creativity, and leave you with stories that resonate long after you’ve returned home. The memories of Kenya will linger, like the last rays of an African sunset, long and warm
