Meet Peter Kariuki Philip Our Safari Expert


Tour Summary

A safari is a trip of a lifetime.   

Because you will watch the greatest wildlife show on Earth.  

On this Safari, you travel in a land cruiser through the Great Rift Valley into Kenya’s national wildlife reserves. You probably have already heard Kenya is known for its scenic landscapes and diverse wildlife. The country boasts highly varied geographical features, ranging from snow-capped mountains, deserts, savannah grasslands, and tropical wetlands. There are many lakes, rivers and a coastal line with beaches, too.  

During your safari game drives, you see different animals. You aim to find the “Big Five” animals, which include the elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard. There are other kinds of animals in the different reserves. They are the zebras, giraffes, antelopes, cheetahs, wildhogs, crocodiles, and many more. Your driver guide will tell you about these animals including the different reptiles, fishes, and birds.

You move from one reserve to another in your land cruiser, passing through the countryside and taking breaks at local curios selling arts and crafts souvenirs. Some curios have workshops where you can watch the artists work on their crafts. Many have a cafe stand.

You stay overnight at different camps, in tents or bungalows. All of which are inside the reserves. Your meals are included either in buffet style or with a menu serving Western and Kenyan foods. Your camps have a deck looking out to a waterhole, lake, river, or grassland. You can watch the animals come and go at sunrise or sunset. There are also lounges and some campsites have a swimming pool, galleries, and game rooms. 

Your safari driver/guide is Peter Phillip a native of Kenya with a background in zoology and travel. Peter knows Kenyan sign language. And Peggy Prosser works with Peter as a conductor. She often interprets during the safari game drives while Peter drives the land cruiser. The two have worked together for several years.
