Nothing can top the romance and magic of a safari in Kenya, a destination marked by its rolling hills and expansive plains, and home to elephants, wildebeest, zebra, lions, and more.

With its incredible diversity of dramatic landscapes and home to some of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the world – it’s no surprise that Kenya is where the concept of safari was born. Here you have some of the best game viewing opportunities in the world including the “Big Five” along with zebras, wildebeest, and more. Kenya also claims the title of having some of the best national parks and game reserves in Africa with diverse ecosystems, including the Masai Mara which is famous for its Great Wildebeest Migration.

This exclusive journey hits all the highlights and offers you the classic safari experience with the comfort of traveling with only your close friends and family. Snap photographs of elephants in Amboseli, birdwatch the hundreds of flamingos at Lake Nakuru and enjoy the unbelievable wildlife in the Masai Mara, arguably the number one game reserve for African safari trips. This unforgettable private adventure offers Odyssey Safaris legendary trip planning, great accommodations, and legendary guides—all at an excellent value.

Booked a last minute Safari to Kenya, to take advantage of terrific airfares from the States and to get ahead of the crowds, once people rush back to Africa to see the amazing wildlife, geography, and kind people. Odyssey navigated every detail - took the time to interview me and match what they learned to the type of accommodations and safari experience I was looking for. On a scale of 1-10, in multiple factors, they scored 10 each time - it was a flawless (and relaxing) trip.

What can I say! I definitely am blown away by Odyssey Safari. Before even arriving to Kenya Lucy was prompt in emailing us back and forth regarding the safari and what we would need for our visit. Everything was wonderful from the moment we were picked up from the airport by our tour guide Jackson who was on time at the airport and was waiting with a sign with our names on it. Jackson was great as our safari driver! We were able to see all big five animals up close and person. Jackson made sure that we had an incredible visit on our safari from the game rides to make sure we were comfortable in the lodges we stayed at. I will definitely be back again and will be requesting Jackson as my tour guide.

I would also highly recommend Odyssey Safaris for anyone looking to go to Africa. The hotels were clean, and considering that they had been closed for a year, they were in good order. The food was good and every member of the staff I encountered at each hotel, were kind and helpful. I will direct others who wish to go on a safari to your company. I have a few friends who are now looking to arrange a safari! Thank you for your exemplary organization of our safari and for having an amazing guide on staff.

We just returned how from one of the most incredible journeys I have every experienced, and I have explored hundreds of cities around the globe. An African Safari has always been a lot the top of my “must do” list, but timing and the expense have always held me back.

My takeaways for those considering the trip: 1) Odyssey Safaris was a pleasure to work with, and we will book more trips through them 2) Take advantage of the upgrades and excursions — they only add to the experience and your ability to relax and truly envelop yourself, and 3) Have an open mind — Hakuna Matatta.
