AUTHENTIC SAFARI CAMPS

Kenya can get a bad rap for being over-run with tourists - but if you know where to go it is remarkably easy to avoid the masses, and in terms of variety of mammals, birds and scenery it really takes some beating.

Easy access from Europe with multiple carriers in to Nairobi means that you can maximize your time on the ground. This could be an epic family safari for those that want to leave the crowds behind and get off the beaten track.

Starting the itinerary in the game-rich yet little visited Laikipia Plateau will give you lots of opportunity to fish, beautiful scenery and good Africa-style camping. Then head by road, under the shadow of Mount Kenya, through forest and commercial farms to the Laikipia Plateau. Laikipia probably offers the greatest freedom to do exactly what you like (assuming your guide agrees) in Africa - swim in waterfalls, fly-camp under mossie nets, meet a warrior or track wild dog on foot. A proper wildlife playground.

As you are so close we recommend that you spend your last couple of nights in big-cat (diary) county. The Maasai Mara is a spectacle to behold, but as on Laikipia greater freedom can be derived by staying on a private conservancy.

Natural High shines rays of adventurous light into some of the least explored, most exciting corners of the wider world.”

Reviews

Natural High

"They were incredibly helpful with choosing which camps we should go to and they took extra time to learn about us as a family so that they could be most able to advise us...I found them extremely willing to answer any questions and always responded in an extremely quick manner. Our itinerary went exactly as outlined and was very comforting to have someone every step of the way who was there to facilitate our moves between camps. We felt very lucky to have seen the parts of Kenya that we did and we would have never been able to research enough to affect the same things on our own."

Best holiday and a true "once in a lifetime" experience

"I've been on many lovely holidays, but have never before had the ultimate luxury of such a personalised itinerary. Natural High Safari's attention to detail and total consideration of our particular requirements was quite simply brilliant! Our guide Joseph taught us more than we could ever have hoped, and my sons are looking forward to taking him on an English Safari, though we'll be sorely challenged to make it remotely as exciting and wonderful as the trip we had with him."

"Have just returned from a fabulous holiday booked through Natural High safaris. From the initial conversations through to the end of the holiday it was easy and stress-free. Everything went without a hitch, transfer times and connecting flights were all perfectly co-ordinated and the accommodation was lovely. My only niggle was that I couldn't get hold of Vanessa at the office and sometimes my messages were not passed on so I had to call again. Thank you too for all the little goodies that you sent through before and after our trip - a lovely touch!"
