Gamewatchers Safaris have been operating in Kenya since 1989, offering a wide range of luxury Kenya safaris and beach holidays. Whatever you are looking for, be it a safari, holiday or tour, you will benefit from our vast range of experiences and relationships – giving you access to Africa’s best wildlife reserves and parks.

If you are looking for the ultimate holiday experience then seeing the “big five” in the African wilderness has to be in the top 10. By choosing a Gamewatchers Kenya Safari tour or holiday it allows you the opportunity of seeing the animals in their natural environment, but with the added bonus of luxury accommodation, open sided safari vehicles as opposed to minibuses and highly qualified professional Kenya safari guides.

  • This is the best camp we have ever visited. We were able to see loads of game and the staff were super friendly.

  • As photographers in just the 2 days we spent here we were shocked with the amount of wildlife in such a small area. There are no words to describe the experience we had here. Just amazing!

  • The best first safari ever! We were so blessed to have seen the big 4 on our first day – lions, rhinos, elephants, buffaloes – and so much more.

  • Wow! Lions + Leopards + Rhinos – OH MY! Words escape us; and we will have a life time of memories. We feel so grateful that our paths crossed with yours.

In most parks / conservancies you can normally guarantee that you will see the more common grazing animals such as buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, eland, giraffe, gazelles, impala and waterbuck. In addition lions, leopards and cheetahs are present in most parks, but are most easily seen in the Mara and the Mara Conservancies. Elephants are best seen in Selenkay / Amboseli and Rhino are often sighted in Nairobi National Park, Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Lake Nakuru Park.

We offer a broad range of transport options. Road safaris can be based on special 6 seater safari minivans or 6 seater 4×4 vehicles. Both types have a pop-up roof or a roof hatch to allow for game-viewing and photography. Some camps (including Porini Safari Camps) operate their own specially-adapted open-sided 4×4 safari vehicles for airstrip transfers and game drives. All vehicles come with a professional and friendly driver-guide.
