Kenya is the quintessential African experience with majestic jungle animals, blissful tropical climate and a vibrant local culture.
Kenya’s sights are some of the greatest Africa has to offer. The Aberdare National Park is just one of countless reserves offering stunning safaris. Spot black-maned lions, elephants and giraffes as you drive through their homeland. Lake Nakuru, another natural hotspot, gets so filled with flamingos that it becomes a pink sea, and the peak of the Menengai Crater reveals an astounding panorama. At the end of the day, Kenya’s curious locals welcome you with their beautiful dress and distinctive dance.
What people say
I saw so much more than I had expected. Our guide and driver were absolutely wonderful and provided a wealth of enthusiastic information to supplement what we saw.
What people say
We’ve just got back from the East Africa Discovery tour and it was awesome! The safari itself was fantastic, I never dreamed we would see as many animals as we did. To have seen the Big Five in wild was amazing.
Kenya travel highlights
Float over the Maasai Mara National Reserve
Drive through and see zebras, leopards and cheetah, or take a hot balloon ride and see herds of gazelle from above.
Step onto Noah’s Ark
It’s named for the biblical ark of the Old Testament, but it’s actually a spectacular viewing deck. This construction overlooks a floodlit waterhole and its nocturnal residents.
Ascend the Menengai Crater
It’s one of the largest craters in the world, and the views from above take your breath away.

East Africa Discovery, October 2015
This is for mainly for seeing the animals and meeting some of the local people. It is NOT for shopping!! You need to enjoy early starts each day to see the animals and to cover the long distances. It is all very well worth it!

East Africa Discovery, October 2015
I recommend doing the Hot Air Balloon, it was an experience not easily forgotten. Take an extra card for your camera because if your anything like me you will take thousands of amazing photo's. Peregrine Tours was an excellent way to see Africa, our tour guide was fantastic plus we had plenty of laughs about the "African Massage" which is an experiance I will never forget. Seeing the "Big 5" in their natural habitat was awesome and I got some really great pictures that I will frame for our home. Make sure you take plenty of sunscreen, the sun is hot and because your out in it a lot you need to slip slop slap very regularly. Had such a great holiday and some of us are thinking about the camping tour next.
