Kenya is renowned for its unparalleled wildlife, habitat diversity and fascinating cultural heritage. Here, elephant, zebra, leopard, lion, rhinoceros, giraffe, cheetah, and baboon have lived and adapted for eons in this ancient landscape, alongside more than a thousand colorful bird species and a multitude of butterflies and other insects. This safari combines superlative wildlife viewing with luxurious comfort and attentive service, while staying in some of Kenya’s finest safari lodges and tented camps. Enjoy game drives in the Tsavo West National Park, Amboseli National Park, Maasai Mara Game Reserve while searching for sightings of the “Big Five” and pay a visit to the Daphne Sheldrik’s Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi. Along with experiencing some of the best wildlife sightings, enjoy a visit to Mzima Springs, a beautiful oasis of natural springs and an evening bush dinner in Tsavo Park. While in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve visit MSU Professor, Dr. Kay Holekamp’s Research Laboratory to see how MSU students are learning hyena behavioral development and evolution.
