Your Adventure: 9-day Kenya Camping Safari with G Adventures
(Activity Level: 2)

Recommended for you by Kathy Sutherland, Park Lane, Halifax

“My Kenya safari was a dream come true! Each day presented a new adventure: Watching a herd of elephants pass by our jeep in single file on their way home at dusk with Mt. Kilimanjaro as the backdrop. Star-gazing under the vast Kenyan sky. The volume and variety of wildlife was breathtaking!”
