Kenya is the birthplace of Safari (Swahili word for journey). Ever since the railways cut through to the hinterland in 1900, famous names such as Hemmingway, Finch Hatton, Roosevelt and much more have come here to do a Safari and left spellbound after experiencing the wonders of this magical land.

Big game, untouched tribes and stunning landscapes combine to produce what is often described as the holiday of a lifetime… Masai Mara Game Reserve is arguably Kenya’s most popular game sanctuary. It is the most famous and most visited game reserve in Kenya. The film ‘Out of Africa’ was made to a great extent in this reserve.
