The Lion King: Best Of Kenya Safari (Culture, Wildlife & National Parks) 7-Days

This Lion King themed safari enlightens you about Kenya. Ride on camels for a guided safari with the Samburu, embark on a Big 5 game drive in the Maasai Mara national park and experience the culture of the Maasai people among others. Start with Samburu, on to the Aberdare National Park, Lake Nakuru and finally to Masai Mara Game Reserve.

We discover the mystical country of Kenya, a land of vast savannas, immense wildlife and welcoming locals. Kenya is a perfect place to answer Africa's call to the wild. It's easy to see why this incredible land became the main source of inspiration for the film.

With luxuriously long stays in each game park, abundant time for rich wildlife viewing sessions, our 7 Days Kenya Safari encompasses everything for which East Africa is famous – the magnificent scenery, the breathtaking wildlife, the excitement and adventure.

All this, experienced at a leisurely, luxurious pace, creating warm memories to live for a lifetime.

    The elusive Kenya leopard is often known to visit the park, especially in the evenings. Other Kenyan wildlife found in the park includes cheetahs and lions, as well as elephants, buffalo and hippos.

    Birdlife is as plentiful as wildlife at Samburu National Reserve, which boasts over 350 different species of birds including vultures, kingfishers, marabous, bateleurs, guinea fowl, Somali ostriches and others.

    This outstanding lodge offers high altitude game viewing, including animals that are rarely encountered elsewhere: giant forest hog, bush pig, tree hyrax, large spotted genet, and the elusive bongo.

    Wildlife can be observed from different levels – and from outside where you can see, hear and smell everything and inside where you can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy.

    You can put in a request to be awakened during the night if your favourite animals show up. A herd of Elephants might be just feet away and if you are lucky, a Leopard or large male Lion might put in an appearance.

    The Park is home to stunning flocks of lesser and Greater Flamingos, which literally turn the lakeshores into a magnificent pink stretch.

    The bird life here is world renown and over 400 birds species exist here, white pelicans, plovers, egrets and marabou stork. It is also one of the very few places in Africa to see the white Rhino and rare Rothschild Giraffe.
