Kenya is home to many National Parks and Game reserves which are packed with thousands of animals and bird species. On your visit a driver/guide will take you on an unforgettable game drive/walk. It could be an early morning game drive, an afternoon game drive or even a full day game drive for which picnic lunch will be provided. Morning game drives are the best because most animals are up early to find food before the sun gets too hot.
