While many tours of Kenya focus on the country's spectacular wildlife, few offer a deep dive into East African culture. This lively two-week tour does both. Learn about the history behind the so-called "cradle of humankind," visiting many of Kenya's top museums and cultural sites, including the Nairobi National Museum, the Karen Blixen House, and the Baden-Powell Museum. Then get out and explore the country's famous landscapes, including the Great Rift Valley, Amboseli National Park, and the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

This two-week itinerary includes some of the best wildlife encounters and safari experiences that East Africa has to offer.

With more than 1,100 species of birds, Kenya is a paradise for birdwatchers.

End your trip with multiple days in the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
There's no need to choose between South Africa and Kenya: you can see both on this wide-ranging two-week tour around both countries.

Then cross the border to Kenya, where national parks and lakes rich with wildlife await. You'll enjoy multiple safari days, spotting elephants, giraffes, and lions in the wild, and you'll also have the chance to interact with local people during a visit to the Maji Moto Maasai Cultural Camp.
