A diverse country, Kenya offers many rewards for the first-time, as well as the seasoned, safari traveler. Magnificent wildlife, excellent accommodations, and a warm and friendly population await you. It is on this Rafiki safari that you will encounter the greatest concentration of free-ranging wildlife on earth, explore the customs of the proud Masai and marvel at the magnificent vistas, including that of the great snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, from your first safari stop at Amboseli National Park. Traveling by light aircraft affords the maximum time possible on safari enjoying what you came to this fascinating continent to experience. Setting out from Nairobi you fly over the highlands of Kenyas northern frontier and onto the bush country of the Lewa Conservancy. Situated against the dramatic backdrop of the snow-covered massif of Mount Kenya and with the magnificent Northern Frontier District stretching out to the North, Lewa is an outstanding tourist destination, offering spectacular scenery, superb game viewing and exciting activities for the discerning traveller. The conservancy, formerly a working cattle ranch and otherwise known as Lewa Downs, has been in the Craig family since 1924. Three generations of the family continue to be involved in daily operations on Lewa. Then fly over the Rift Valley to Kenya's most favored game reserve, the Masai Mara. Rich in game and birds, the Masai Mara is the scene of the spectacular annual migration of wildebeest and zebra, when millions of animals follow the unbroken cycle of survival as they move between Tanzania and Kenya in search of fresh grasses. The Mara River bisects this great reserve and provides a rich habitat along its banks. And everywhere, the seemingly endless herds of animals live out their daily lives to the rhythm of nature. Your specially equipped Land Cruiser allows you to drive off the road in search of the wildlife, enhancing your safari experience.
