Ontdek Kenya crafts unique African wildlife safaris for clients seeking one of a kind nature journeys rather than the hectic package safaris covering all parks in Kenya.


We are not an office-bound tour re-seller, we are a dedicated team of nature people right on the ground and as we accompany clients on safaris it matters to us that we create African wildlife safaris that have quality time dedicated to game viewing, the best services possible and that we stay away from mass tourism.


With over a decade of running quality wildlife safaris and a deliberate decision to restrict our operations in Kenya, you can count on our experience to design and deliver your unique Kenyan vacation that combines guided game viewing walks with traditional vehicle safaris.

What makes Ontdek's African Wildlife Safaris unique?


Unlike package safaris to Kenya which feature long and exhausting one-day transfers e.g. Nairobi to Samburu or Samburu to Nakuru, we give you our candid approach on national parks selections enabling you to have a quality wildlife viewing experience with minimal transfers. Remember: however good an alternative wildlife safari itinerary that covers many parks looks, on the ground it will be exhausting and with less time for quality wildlife viewing.


- We encourage you to stay in one location for a minimum 2 or 3 nights so as to have enough time to explore the parks. This way your tour is more relaxed and your African wildlife safari is not rushed.


- Our clients appreciate the fact that we take them to places that are not visited by mass tourism. These are mainly private game conservancies and the small national parks that are full of easy to see game on vehicle drives or while on walking safaris.


- Our African wildlife safaris don’t go by the 2 game drives/day safari rule. We go for maximum time in the field as defined by you - the client. Yes, you will find us enjoying a lion chasing a prey at 12 noon – the very time that other tourists are idling away in hotel lounges waiting for the 4pm game drive! Read more on how we organize our guided tours in Kenya.


- We are proud of our Kenya safari guides who will accompany you throughout your wildlife safari. They are accomplished naturalists who take your wildlife viewing tour way beyond the “Big Five” as they give you insights into the Africa eco-system in an educational yet fun way.


- Our African wildlife safaris are operated as private safaris or selected small group departures of min 4 and maximum 10. This gives our clients a one-on-one contact with our guides.

Who will be your co-travelers in your African wildlife safari? Our clients have a very strong interest in nature be it game viewing, bird watching, walking or nature photography. So you will not find yourself trapped in a group that just wants to "chase game".


On accommodation we tend to go to small safari camps and lodges but quality properties with unique character rather than the high-traffic tourist hotels. We don't do camping, making this a perfect African safari holiday for travelers of all ages. Our booking decisions are based on the property’s close proximity to client’s preferred activities, quality accommodation and overall service which we review regularly.


In choosing an outfitter for your African wildlife safari it matters that you pick one who shares your interests, approach to nature and is of course reliable. At Ontdek Kenya, truly nature themed safaris are our personal signatures and we look forward to consulting with you to plan your safari.
