This week-long Kenya safari has been designed to complement our Tanzania safari or our Uganda wildlife tour, with a choice of parks that do not duplicate what we experience in on our other trips.
We chose Mountain Lodge so you can see a lush forest on the slopes of Mt. Kenya and Nakuru National Park, famous for its wetlands and the security it provides both White and Black Rhinos, as well as tree-climbing lions and healthy Leopard populations. We end at Amboseli National Park, one of Kenya’s most scenic spots with views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, springs, and wetlands contrasting vast salt pans. Amboseli is best known for elephants and the decades-long research of Cynthia Moss. It is rich in bird life and has Cheetah, Hyena, Lion, and more.
Our guide, Preston Mutinda, is from Kenya and currently serves as President of the Kenya Wildlife Guide’s Association. He has extended his company in recent years and now
works in Tanzania, Rwanda, and Uganda.
