Description of Kenya off the beaten track safari
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs with all of our luxury vacations, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.
This itinerary includes trips to some of Kenya's protected areas of natural beauty, including national parks. By visiting these sites (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the preservation and conservation of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting both Kenya's incredible natural environments.
Whilst out on safari, please ensure that you don’t leave any litter – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.
We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, the Saruni group participates in fantastic community-led conservation initiatives with local tribes, such as the Samburu, which aims to put local people at the forefront of land and wildlife conservation. Saruni Rhino has also been at the forefront of rhino conservation, involving guests with their rhino tracking experience on foot with local guides, helping to monitor the recently re-introduced rhino populations through traditional tracking methods.
PeopleAll the local guides referred to in this itinerary are paid a fair wage. We believe that using local guides is important, as it helps generate local incomes and creates jobs, plus it offers a more authentic travel experience.
We recommend independent local hotels, lodges, guesthouses and campsites, rather than international chain hotels, which helps support local communities and allows you to experience true East African hospitality. For example, Saruni employs 80% local people, with many coming from traditional backgrounds, and can therefore offer a local's perspective on the wildlife and the land during safari excursions. The Saruni group also participates in the amazing Pack for a Purpose initiative, which invites guests to use extra luggage space to bring donations of supplies for local communities, such as schools.
This luxury Kenya safari vacation includes the option for cultural experiences learning about local traditions with trips to local villages, where you can buy authentic souvenirs. We believe getting to know the destination and the people who live there means that you will have a more authentic and meaningful travel experience.
