Cheetah Safari

4.5 stars


This new 7-night wildlife safari visits some of the best game viewing areas in Kenya. It begins with a journey into the vast wilderness of Samburu, home to some of the most unique wildlife in Kenya. Be amongst the first to experience the Ashnil Samburu Camp which brings warm hospitality together with superb accommodation and great game viewing experiences. The next stop is Lake Nakuru where thousands of pink flamingos tint the horizon and the surrounding game reserve is a haven for the endangered black rhino. Finally, the safari moves on to the magnificent Masai Mara, famed for its vast numbers of plains game and the spectacular big cats. The Cheetah Safari is a great way to experience the African wilderness.
