We will introduce the points that are useful in such a case, our popular tours, and the contents that receive many inquiries by country. The first is Kenya, the representative country of safari.

Flights are generally via the Middle East using Emirates and Qatar Airways. Tickets are also relatively affordable, depending on the time of year.

Points for choosing a tour
For those who want to enjoy safari efficiently without taking a long vacation, who are not good at traveling for a long time, and who want to keep costs down by traveling alone, we recommend Kenya Express, which focuses on the Masai Mara National Reserve.
For those who want to take more than 10 days off and want to see various things while traveling by land, we recommend Amboseli, Naivasha, and Masai Mara, which include two consecutive nights in the Golden Triangle and three consecutive nights in Masai Mara. is.

If your budget, travel days, or wishes do not apply to your existing tour, we will propose a customized trip, so please tell us your specific wishes for the trip you envision.
Time of travel
One of the most frequently asked questions is that Kenya can enjoy safari all year round, and each month has different merits.
July-October, the Christmas, New Year holidays and migration season, is the most expensive during the peak season. It is also a good time for the weather, and many tourists gather to see the wildebeest river crossing during the migration period.
April-June is the low season and there are few tourists, so you can enjoy safari at your own pace. At this time of year, luxury lodges, which are usually expensive, can be stayed at low season prices, so this is the place to go.
January-March and November-December are high seasons. Depending on the lodge, November may be a low-season rate, and it is a time when the number of tourists decreases, so we recommend this month.
