We offer a number of ORGANIZED and SET departure Date Itineraries. Our Save The Elephant Safaris are among the best booked and they tend to sell out very fast. The idea is to sponsor & foster one or more orphaned elephants with support of the Daphne Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, based in Nairobi. 

This Safari is a GROUP Safari, where individuals can join and experience meeting their sponsored elephants at various locations in Kenya. Accommodation is on shared basis mostly and the number of maximum / minimum participants is 6 – 8 persons at one time.
You can also book this Safari on INDIVIDUAL BASIS and you do not need to join a group departure. Simply contact us with your preferred dates!

PRE- or POST Safari Extensions: We offer wonderful pre- or post- Safari extensions to a variety of National parks & game reserves.
