This is the best One-week safari in Kenya you can take! The 7 days Kenya safari takes you to the most iconic national parks and reserves in Kenya. From the prominent Masai Mara Game Reserve where you can spot the Big Five and watch the Great Wildebeests Migration, to the Rhino watching at Ol Pejeta and Lake Nakuru National Park where you can enjoy beautiful sights of colorful flamingos. The seven-day Kenyan expedition also takes as far as Samburu & Shaba Game Reserves in Northern Kenya where you will get the chance of spotting some of the rarest and endangered wildlife species such as the gerenuks, Somali ostriches, the Beisa oryx and the reticulated giraffes.
The 7 days safari in Kenya starts and ends at Nairobi, the capital of Kenya and unofficially; the capital of safari in Africa, due to the city being a major hub for the East and Central African Region. Most flights to East Africa fly in and out of Nairobi, and most combined safaris that include Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Zanzibar Island starts here and this one-week safari in Kenya can be customized to include the other parks like Tanzania Safari or Rwanda Gorilla treks. The week-long wildlife safari tour in Kenya can also be customized to have a beach vacation extension at the end of the safari. We can always arrange a flight from Masai Mara to the Kenyan Coast; Mombasa or Diani, or we can also take you to Nairobi for an afternoon flight to the coast for beach extension.
