Kenya Walking & Wildlife Safaris with Confidence Africa Tours
Game drives are the most popular safaris tour activity in Kenya and for good reason. A 4×4 vehicle navigates the varied and remote terrain with ease, and your expert guide takes you to exceptional vantage points to take in the greater ecosystem. But as you travel through forests, riverine forests, savannah plains, lakeshores, and other habitats, you will come across many of Kenya’s most fascinating inhabitants. Huddled in crevices, resting in trees, and scurrying about on the ground, smaller creatures have to keep busy. Unfortunately, game drives bypass these many micro-ecosystems that are equally important to the overall health of the larger ecosystem. Enlightenment to know the little things in life is to take a step in life.
