Tour Overview

‘Luxury’ and ‘safari’ are two words that do not have to be mutually exclusive. Enjoy Yampu’s unique Luxury Air Safari that allows you to travel in style while seeing the most of Kenya. Spending less time on the road and more time in Kenya’s top national parks and reserves, you will fly from safari to safari.

The first stop in this luxury tour is the Masai Mara Game Reserve, where you’ll stay at the Karen Blixen Camp, a top-of-the-line lodge named after the author of Out of Africa. Known for its abundance of wildlife, expansive land and unparalleled, annual wildebeest migration, the Masai Mara is Kenya’s most popular inland park.

From there, you’ll fly to Amboseli, a small, but distinct park, known for its elephants and set apart by its backdrop Mt. Kilimanjaro. Last but not least, you’ll head to Tsavo, Kenya’s largest national park, where the grounds themselves are stand-out, from the remote, arid plains of Tsavo East to the extinct volcanic cones and natural springs of Tsavo West.

The trip you set up for me was flawless.

The trip you set up for me was flawless. The guide met all my expectations. He was helpful and protective. I did learn that in Africa, time is a relative thing. I soon learned that when James told me we were one half hour from anywhere, I could count on an hour. I saw every major animal, but one, including the Black Rino, one of the most endangers specie in the Crater. I took 900 pictures. I can tell you without a doubt, that your people can take care of a person my age and should promote that fact. I loved Nxabega. However, I was prevented from going to my tent for a rest when a family of Elephants started eating the trees between the lunch area and my tent. They were all first rate camps, but Sopa was exceptional. If you wish me to fill out anything, let me know. One funny story. I needed to go to the bathroom. James asked me to wait while he drove about a half a mile to high ground, so he could watch out for animals while I attended to the problem behind his 4×4. As we get to about fifty yards from the place we planned to stop; three lions walked over the hill and past our vehicle. You would be surprised how fast the urge to go disappears under these circumstances.

I’ve been told more than once A++

I’ve been told more than once A++ so I’m thinking it was great. I’ll forward this to Paul. He’d love to tell you how much he enjoyed it. Apparently George Lucas among various celebrities have stayed at the Little Governors. He thought that was great.
