Excursions Enhancing Your Safari
Most Kenya safari packages allow adding excursions like:
- Hot air balloon rides over migrating wildebeest herds in Masai Mara
- Hiking in Aberdare National Park’s forested moorlands

Crafting Your Ideal Kenya Safari Adventure
With endless options for visiting Kenya’s dazzling diversity of parks and reserves, planning your perfect safari package can feel overwhelming initially. Here are key considerations when selecting your Kenya safari if traveling independently or with Brighte Maasai Adventures.
Step 1: Define Your Safari Goals, Style & Budget
What experience are you seeking on safari? Relaxing in luxury? Active family adventures? Intimate wildlife encounters? Romantic honeymoons or solo journeys? This clarifies priorities when choosing destinations and lodges.
Set realistic budgets accounting for park fees, accommodations, meals, transport and activities. Packages range from $150-$1500+ per day. Understand inclusions/exclusions before comparing.
Step 2: Choose Ideal Destinations & Timeframes
Kenya’s national parks/reserves each offer unique landscapes, wildlife densities and migration visitation times. Select based on safari goals. The Masai Mara hosts the wildebeest migration July-October, for example. While Amboseli National Park offers spectacular elephant and Kilimanjaro views year-round.
Step 3: Pick Your Accommodation Style
Will you prefer boutique tented camps, private luxury villas or exclusive eco-lodges? Go remote or stay near park conveniences? Understand options matching budgets from $100 to $2000+ nightly rates before deciding.
Step 4: Confirm Activities & Customizations
Most Kenya safari packages build in core game drives, but confirm any special interests like hot air balloon rides over the Mara are included or can be booked additionally before confirming your trip.
Popular National Parks & Reserves for Kenyan Safaris
From the world-famous Masai Mara hosting epic wildebeest migrations to Amboseli’s big skies with Kilimanjaro backdrops, Kenya dazzles with spectacular scenery and Africa’s iconic wildlife.
Masai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara delivers quintessential African imagery with golden plains dotted with acacia trees and prides of lions surveying grasslands. The annual Great Migration from July-October sees hordes of wildebeest and zebra herds in their quest for greener grazing. Leopards, cheetahs and hippos also inhabit the Mara.
Amboseli National Park
Amboseli charms with some of Kenya’s largest elephant herds roaming plains against the photogenic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. Wildebeests, buffalos, big cats and over 400 bird species also call this park home.
Samburu, Buffalo Springs & Shaba National Reserves
In Kenya’s arid north, these adjoining parks protect the Ewaso Nyiro river allowing unique species like Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe and gerenuk antelope to thrive. Iconic predators—lions, cheetahs and leopards—also flourish with bountiful prey.
Enhancing Your Safari: Excursions & Activities
While wildlife viewing game drives usually take center stage on Kenyan safaris, adding any of these excursions allows you to delve deeper into authentic local cultures and communities.
Community & Cultural Encounters
Through our non-profit Brighte Maasai Adventures Foundation, visit a Maasai village in the Mara or Samburu region to learn about nomadic lifestyles relatively unchanged for centuries while supporting community education initiatives.
Hot Air Balloon Rides
Soar over spectacular savannas in a hot air balloon with bird’s-eye views of the Great Migration crossing crocodile-infested rivers in the Mara. An incredible perspective gazing down on herds stampeding across golden plains.
Hiking & Biking
Lace-up your hiking boots to climb Mt. Kenya or wander through the Aberdares’ indigenous rainforests. For striking Rift Valley scenery, bike or hike among zebras/antelopes in Hell’s Gate National Park.
