Summary video of Kenya´s National Reserves + written Itinerary

Here in the blog you can find many videos and comprehensive articles about different national reserves, conservancies and safari hotels in Kenya. Still, I felt the need to post a summary video where you can see our experiences in all the parks we visited, in case you want to have a general idea….Or just don´t have the patience to click on all of the individual videos lol (I totally get that!)

Map of the itinerary:

Yeah, we did a lot!

Our favorite hotel was the Basecamp Mara, in Masai Mara – the same hotel Obama stayed in with his family when visiting Kenya as a senator. But the best view was at Kilaguni Serena Lodge, at Tsavo West. Our favorite park was Tsavo West, for its untouched nature. Our whole trip was booked directly with a Kenyan company – Tazama Africa Holidays, and our guide Anthony stayed with us through the whole 13-days safari. I would definitely recommend the company!

If you wanna put some images to this written itinerary, here´s the compilation video of all parks!
