Egypt & Kenya: Your Way
Kenya conjures up images of great wildlife roaming in the Maasai Mara, and is a noticeable contrast to the ancient cultural relics of Egypt. Home to the big five such as Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant & Rhinoceros, you will have an opportunity to view them in their natural habitats. This is a perfect tour to visit two very diverse regions of Africa and appreciate the immensity of this fascinating continent.
