AFRICAN SAFARIS – an expert’s opinion

“If anyone knows how to plan a perfect safari, it’s me,” says Vuitton Travel – NYC‘s CEO, Kenneth Vasquez. “After all, the kid in the photo is me. I started enjoying safaris ever since I was 7 years old. And throughout the years, I have taken countless safaris and arranged countless safaris for others. In the 80s, I ventured beyond the borders of Southern Africa and into East Africa, particularly Kenya and Tanzania.”

Nestled between the Rift Valley and the Indian Ocean, Kenya beckons with its awe-inspiring landscapes, rich cultural tapestry, and unparalleled biodiversity. The Swahili word for “journey,” Kenya embodies the essence of exploration and discovery.

At the heart of Kenya’s allure lies the iconic Maasai Mara, a vast expanse of savannah teeming with life. Here, beneath the shade of acacia trees, wildlife roams freely, including the renowned two million-strong wildebeest and zebra migration. Opting for camps nestled within community-owned conservancies ensures both a more intimate safari experience and direct support for the Maasai people’s sustainable livelihoods.

Venturing southeast leads to the majestic Amboseli, where elephant herds roam against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro’s snow-capped peak. Traverse the verdant hills and forests of Chyulu, then journey north to Laikipia, once dominated by cattle ranches but now a thriving conservation hub. Here, endangered species find sanctuary amidst Africa’s most exclusive lodges, promising an adventurous experience beyond conventional game drives.

Further north, Samburu offers a rugged yet captivating landscape, home to the resilient Samburu people and their vibrant culture. Engage with community-led conservation efforts and immerse yourself in the stories of resilience and preservation.

Beyond Samburu, the Rift Valley unfolds in all its splendor, with saline lakes, desert expanses, and volcanic terrains awaiting exploration. Embark on a helicopter journey to uncover the secrets of this ancient land from a unique vantage point, where every vista tells a story of Kenya’s enduring beauty and boundless wonder.
