Uso Africa Safaris Provides Many Custom Itineraries
We build your Kenya safari based on your preferences and motivations, not a pre-packaged cookie-cutter approach that assumes all clients want the same safari experience. Are there specific wildlife species you hope to see? What social or development initiatives are most important to you? Are you hoping to visit a women’s village such as Unity Women’s Village or Umoja Women’s Village in Samburu? We will build an itinerary that integrates your preferences!
During the process of planning your trip, we’ll ask a lot of questions so we can create a Kenya safari that fulfills your motivations and preferences.
We know that price is a major consideration for our clients.There’s a lot of factors that influence the schedule and price of a safari: group size, trip duration, time of year, type of accommodations, community experiences, entrance fees to parks, and so on.
The biggest influence on trip price is the time of the year of your trip. Lodges and hotels have different prices for different seasons. The low season is approximately early March to late June and lodge prices are less expensive. Prices increase during the high season of early July to October, and again from late December to late February. The itineraries listed below are only examples. We provide them here to give you an initial idea of the price range on different options.
The prices and itinerary below should be used only as an example option. Specific schedules and prices are based on the preferences of your group.

|Adventure Accommodations||3,300 – 3,700||3,200 – 3,600|

Day 1 Nairobi
Most clients arrive in the evening from their international location. We will greet clients at the airport, provide transport to their lodging and conduct a short briefing before turning in for the night. For clients who would prefer to arrive a day earlier and have a full day in Nairobi to better overcome jetlag and/or tour the city, we can help make those arrangements.
Days 2-4 Amboseli
Amboseli National Park
Amboseli will start your trip off right, as you watch herds of elephants graze on the sprawling savannah grasslands with striking views of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the background. Its long dry seasons make for remarkable wildlife-viewing, with elephants, cape buffalo, impala, giraffe, zebras and many predator species (lions, hyenas, cheetahs) active in the area.
Day 5 Laikpia
Laikipia / Ol Pejeta Conservancy
Nestled in the central highlands of Kenya’s productive ranching and agricultural areas, Laikipia is a blend of traditional herding cultures and contemporary modern hustle and bustle, all in the shadows of the 17,000 foot Mount Kenya. The days will go by quickly with game drives in Ol Pejeta Conservancy and tours of local schools.
Days 6-8 Samburu
Samburu National Reserve
Situated on the edge of Kenya’s remote and barren northern region, Samburu is an area in transition. Traditional pastoralists roam the landscape with their livestock while children in school uniforms scurry to class and vehicles pass by on newly paved roads. In addition to the amazing landscape and wildlife, we will visit Samburu women’s villages (options include Unity Women’s Village and Umoja Women’s Group), schools, and conservation organizations to learn about the efforts undertaken to address many of the challenges in this part of the world related to health, women’s rights, education and wildlife issues.
Days 9-10 Lake Nakuru
Lake Nakuru National Park
Among many species of big game wildlife, Lake Nakuru National Park is well-known for its rhinos and flamingoes. You will also have the option to visit the thriving and busy Nakuru market, and its throngs of vendors selling cabbage, mangoes, avocadoes and more. We will also shop for books and other supplies for the Jacaranda Children’s Home, and visit the home to learn about its mission to empower girls through education.
Days 11-14 Masai Mara
Among the world’s most heralded wildlife parks, the Masai Mara provides breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife viewing opportunities. In between wildlife drives we will visit local villages to learn about a day-in-the-life of a Masai, including options for a hike with a Masai herder and his livestock.
Design Your Own Safari
We can start with a blank slate and build a safari that meets the needs and preferences of you and your traveling companions. You can mix and match various types of accommodations and community experiences, as well as the number of days, frequency of game drives, and so on.
