Setting the benchmark in Kenya
AFRICAN travel specialists Bench Africa has revealed a new signature safari package for travellers wishing to explore the fascinating wildlife of Kenya. The brand new curated package has been designed to celebrate its 50th anniversary of operation.
The Connoisseur Signature Safari Special tour showcases the country’s many engaging cultures and iconic wild landscapes. Two full days of exploring the popular 104kmSamburu National Reserve is included, with guests afforded the opportunity to trek through the park’s rounded and rugged hills, tracking along the impressive Ewaso Nyiro river, the primary lifeline for the extraordinary diversity of local fauna that call the reserve home such as the beisa oryx, the long-necked gerenuk, the reticulated giraffe and blue shanked Somali ostrich.
The adventure also includes a three-day trip to the Masai Mara nature reserve located near the Tanzanian border. The park is renowned for its wildlife tours, presenting the opportunity to spot lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras and hippos, to name just a few. This leg of the journey also involves a stay at the small and intimate Mara Ngeche Camp, luxurious accommodation that provides panoramic views of the Talek River and a hippo pool. The eight-day trip is priced from $6,960 per person.
