Visit the most spectacular wildlife reserves on earth
No extra cost for safaris
We understand that hidden costs or surprises can put a strain on gap year students’ funds and a dampener on your gap year volunteer experience – so that’s why we include these Adventure Safaris as part of your project fees.
One of the main reasons we chose Kenya for our MAD gap year students because it is the most diverse and beautiful country – in fact, Kenya offers you the most spectacular wildlife reserves and safari experiences on the planet!
10 days of amazing and different safari trips - all included
Lake Naivasha – Hells Gate National Park
We camp right by the water’s edge of the beautiful Lake Naivasha, shaded by tall beautiful fever trees. We hike through Hells Gate, with a dramatic volcanic backdrop of soaring lava cliffs, steaming volcanic vents and hot springs you can walk among herds of zebra, eland, hatebeast and Thomson’s gazelle or mountain bike on an easy downhill ride to Elsa Gate, to visit the astute rock hyraxes.
Lake Nakuru National Park
This park is the greatest bird spectacle on earth – with 1-2 million pink flamingos feeding on the abundant algae. We camp in the woods, on the grassland, next to the lake shore, with excellent viewings of rhinos, dik-dik, ostrich, striped hyena and jackals.
Meru National Park
Meru presents the widest variety of landscapes and habitats. Its intimate and unusual landscape of forest, swamp and savannah is quickly entrancing. In this jungle there are a noticeable absence of minibuses and 4 x 4’s , but the park is full of large and very visable herds of elephant, buffalo, ostrich and reticulated giraffe . We camp, next to a wooded stream and utilise the swimming pool in the hottest part of the day.
Samburu National Reserve
We wouldn’t miss this world famous wildlife spectacular, where herds of elephant roam the hills during the day, before retreating to bathe on the banks of the river in the evening.
This outstanding private conservancy boasts more game per acre than any other in Kenya. The combination of amazing wildlife and stunning views across the open plains, guarantees an unforgettable safari experience.
Aberdares National Park
This mountain range and forest is awesome in its beauty and also rich in wildlife such as waterbuck, forest hog, duiker, suni, bongo and reedbuck.
