When it comes to planning a real African safari, the stakes can seem pretty high. Though what Deaf World Adventures know is that it is not the usual kind of vacation, the kind of vacation that is a “trip of a lifetime”.  

Why? Because… you will be watching the greatest wildlife show on Earth.  

In this Safari you will travel in a land cruiser through the Great Rift Valley to Kenya’s national wildlife reserves. Kenya is famed for its scenic landscapes and wildlife. It boasts highly varied geographical features, ranging from snow-capped mountains to deserts, to savannah grassland and tropical wetlands. There are many lakes and rivers, too.  

You drive through Kenya’s rural side to our next campsites.  You pass through small towns and see the beautiful countryside with farms. You will take breaks at curio shops and may stop to meet Deaf Kenyans along the way.

During the game drives you will see a variety of animals and compare them with the same animals you saw in other parks. You must aim to find the “Big Five” animals, which include the elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard.  You will learn more about them and about other wildlife animals and also the different plants, insects, reptiles, and fishes, too. 

You stay overnight at different camps, in luxury tents and bungalows inside the reserves/parks. The meals are mostly buffet-style serving western foods and some local Kenyan dishes. All of your camps have an observation deck that looks out to a waterhole, lake, river, or over grassland where you can watch the animals come and go and the sunset or sunrise.  There are also lounges and some sites have a swimming pool, gallerias, and game rooms. 

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