SENIOR TRAVEL AND TOURS IN KENYA
Senior travel has been a big part of Ontdek since 1996. We design and deliver unique walking, bird watching and wildlife safaris specifically for the active senior traveler.
An outstanding feature of the elderly travelers who join our tours in Kenya is that though their days for extreme adventure are over, they are active to their ability and they certainly donít want to spend their days confined in a safari minibus during their Kenyan vacation.
