If that spirit of adventure includes the dream of a daring adventure with the best Driver/Guides in East Africa, then you can kick your bucket list to the curb on this private safari in some of the world’s most famous game areas.

We pick the perfect spots for the chance to spot the “Big 5” (lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, elephant, and rhino), not to mention other locals like cheetah, giraffe, gazelle, and hyena.

Your African adventure also includes Nairobi, with a visit to the elephant orphanage at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and a tour of the Karen Blixen Museum in honor of the Out of Africa author. Meet the remarkable Rothschild’s giraffes at the Giraffe Center for an up-close encounter.
