Discover Kenya with Ujuzi African Travel

Kenya encompasses every sort of terrain, from the dramatic depths of the Great Rift Valley to the peaks of Mount Kenya. It provides a welcoming home for a diverse array of threatened and endangered wildlife, including lions, elephants, Rothschild giraffes, blue-necked Somali ostriches, and rhinos.

Love drama? Come to Kenya for the annual Great Wildebeest Migration. Millions of wildebeest risk life and limb to cross the crocodile-infested Mara River—all in pursuit of the lush green grass that fills southern Kenya’s plains.

On this East African Adventure, you will explore the wonders of Kenya and Uganda: the charismatic wildlife of the semi-arid Samburu National Reserve, the Great Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara grasslands, and the mountain gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

After looking for—and likely seeing!—the Big 5 in Kenya, you’ll head for Uganda for a mountain gorilla trek. With only about 1,000 mountain gorillas left in Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo, looking deep into the expressive brown eyes of these gentle giants is an extraordinary privilege.
