Kenya is a country of diverse landscapes and biodiversity; from its savannahs, home to immense herds of wildlife, to snowcapped equatorial mountains and the Great Rift Valley. Within this beautiful landscape are tribes like the Maasai, who maintain their traditions in the modern world.
This tour will take you from Nairobi, a city perched on the edge of a National Park, into the Maasai Mara, where you will experience the great Kenyan safari. Travel north through the Rift Valley to the lakes of Nakuru, spectacular Bogoria with its flamingoes and geysers and the lesser visited Baringo, before heading south to the area around Mt Kenya.
Throughout this tour you will meet with local vets, conservationists and rangers to learn about veterinary science in Kenya.
