A first in the business: a short trip to Kenya. Wake up with giraffes, lunch with the lions in The Masai Mara and enjoy the camp fire with stories for week at the amazing but lesser known Samburu National Reserve and what about shaking hands with our closest relatives, the Chimpanzees? . The next morning you will have your game drive, fly back to Nairobi and fly back home after a weekend like no other… And, don’t say we didn’t warn you, but you might want to come back for more (yes, that was our warning).
