7 days
Monday July 15- Sunday July 21, 2024

Monday Aug 19 – Sunday Aug 25, 2024

From seeing the wildebeest mega-herds in the Masai Mara and Amboseli’s legendary elephant herds against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro to cultural encounters in Samburu, a Kenya safari will not disappoint.


Experience nature up close, while staying in luxury cottages near the park entrance perfectly located for observing game. 

On this exciting “Affordable Luxury Kosher Safari” itinerary, we blend this ‘bucket-list’ experience with the game-reserves, lakes, and mountains of Northern Kenya!

  • Welcome to Kenya! 

    Our team will ensure a seamless transition from the airport to your top-tier hotel for check-in, a light lunch and some time to relax and refresh at the hotel facilities. 


    Today, we arrive in Nairobi, and start our adventure with a late-afternoon safari in the Nairobi National Park, a unique park forming part of the city limits but open on its southern boundary and home to all the Big 5! 

    This evening, a gourmet dinner will be served with time to recharge and rest easy to get ready for the excitement ahead tomorrow when we head off to explore the wonders awaiting you in Kenya!

  • Today, we rise early to embark on the most enchanting leg of your Kenya adventure as we fly from Nairobi into the world-renowned Masai Mara National Park. Here, the spectacle of the migration herds and their vigilant predators unfolds against the backdrop of breathtaking landscapes.

    Immerse in the magic of this peak migration season, where the Mara comes alive with an abundance of wildlife. Brace yourself for the possibility of witnessing legendary river crossings, a testament to the resilience of these magnificent creatures facing the crocodile-infested waters of the Mara or Sand River. 

    However, the wonders don't end there. The Masai Mara boasts one of the planet's highest concentrations of resident wildlife. From antelopes, gazelles, and zebras to the famed "pumba" (warthog), cheetahs, leopards, lions, elephants, buffaloes, and graceful giraffes – each day promises an exhilarating search for these extraordinary creatures. 

    On Thursday we visit a traditional Masai African village after which we drive via the beautiful wildlife haven of lake Nakura, located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, toward the luxury resort in Nanyuki that will be our base in stunning north Kenya.

  • Each region on our itinerary is unique, and north of Nairobi is famous for the iconic Mount Kenya, the country’s highest peak and Africa’s second highest, as well as the private conservancies along the high plateaus bordering the mountain, including the magnificent “Ol Pajeta,” one of the last strongholds of the highly endangered rhino.

    On Friday we hike in the foothills of the magnificent Mount Kenya and enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery.

    On Sunday, we drive West to the unique “Ol-Pajeta” conservancy where we enjoy a full day of safaris in search of the Big-5 and many other species. Our special focus will be on the endangered rhino, as well as an unforgettable visit to the protected enclosure where the last 2 surviving Northern white-rhinos are kept!

    As our incredible journey concludes, we return to Nairobi (option of flying is also available) for our international flights home on Sunday evening bidding farewell to the memories etched in the heart of Kenya's wilderness.
