Kenya

Incoming Agency Private Safaris

Kenya is more than worth a visit for people who love nature and who will certainly enjoy the country's fauna and flora. Not only the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros and elephant) can be found in Kenya, but watching the migration of up to 250.000 animals a year is also an unforgettable experience. After all this, you might wish to relax in one of Kenya's top hotels facing the endless sandy beaches of the Indian ocean.


Private Safaris means more than 30 years of experience in tourism. The company's first office had been opened in 1976 in Nairobi, today there are branch offices in Mombasa (Kenya), in Tanzania, in South Africa and in Namibia and Botswana. Without any doubt Private Safaris are one of the top players in African tourism and they offer nearly the complete range of tourism services, from taylor-made programmes for individuals and small groups to big international meetings and conferences.
