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.”

Another Perfect Trip

"Morocco was our fourth trip with Natural High and true to past trips, the itinerary was right on point for our interest and goals, all logistics went off without a hitch and the service throughout the trip was high end. Everyone we worked with were friendly and professional. We had a fantastic time...Thank you!"

Perfect holiday from start to finish.

"Absolutely excellent service. The itinerary was spot on and the whole holiday worked like clockwork. The pre holiday notes and briefing were most useful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natural High Safaris to others."

Fabulous trip to Tanzania

"This is the second time we have used Natural High Safaris, and again they organised an outstanding holiday for us, this time in Tanzania, combining a safari and beach holiday that was top-notch. Highly recommend them, with huge range of experience and desire to really understand what it is their clients want - and then delivering! Thanks to Catherine Ronan."

An outstanding trip to the Himalayas superbly designed by Natural High.

"Natural High organised a 2 week family trip to Ladakh in August 2018. Andrea Hulme used her local knowledge to design an exciting trip that included a 5 day trek, white water rafting and numerous cultural visits and experiences. Their local partners Shakti were absolutely outstanding and we loved staying in the village houses as opposed to hotels. Their female Ladakhi guide Sonam was really one of the best we have every had on our travels."

"Yet again another great holiday arranged by Natural High - Air France tried to ruin it but Natural High and their local agent were very helpful in resolving the problems caused. ."
