From rugged hills and montane forests to endless savannah plains, Kenya offers incredible physical diversity. The scenery is breath-taking and the wildlife viewing is some of the finest in the world. The Maasai Mara is often alluded to when talking about a Kenyan safari, but Alex would like to be able to show you that there is so much more to the country he calls home. Kenya’s safari history goes back to the early 1900s and its fine tradition of personal guiding and warm hospitality still exists today.
Heading right up into the Northern Frontier with a train of camels, walking down dry river beds and through dense bush, with the sun beating down on your back, galloping on horseback across the Laikipia Plains or trudging through snow and ice on the peaks of Mount Kenya are a just a few of Kenya's offerings that can inspire a more active safari goer. Visiting some of the more unique and inaccessible wildlife projects are one of the aspects of Alex's safaris that make him stand out above the myriad other operators out there. His connections with both the Big Life Foundation and the Tsavo Trust make travelling to the Chyulus and Tsavo National Parks respectively a fascinating and educational experience. Tsavo is also where Alex cut his teeth in the safari industry, and is a park held very dear to his heart.
That is not to say that these itineraries are devoid of luxury; a soothing cool towel and an ice cold drink will be poured for you by Alex's staff, served with a welcoming smile as you arrive into camp.
