Transport during your Safari

The type of transport which you choose for your travel between the parks and when you go out from the camps on “game drives” to see the wildlife has an important effect on your overall safari experience.

You can choose between driving from Nairobi to the parks which you are visiting on a road safari or flying in for an air safari or a mix of both.
