Rock My Kenya Adventure

7 Nights – £1,495

Tour Highlights

We begin the trip in Kenya’s capital Nairobi before heading to the Masai Mara for a ‘Big 5’ safari. The Masai Mara is one of the best safari destinations in the world so you will love it!

Whilst in the area you’ll also have the opportunity to spend time with and get to know the Maasai people.

From there we head to Lake Naivasha, one of the most beautiful parts of Kenya.

Imagine all of this, sprinkled with the Rock My Adventure magic and you have yourself the trip of dreams! 

PLEASE NOTE: This trip is followed by the Rock My Uganda Adventure so you can easily combine the two trips (includes gorilla & chimpanzee trekking, rhino tracking and safaris in Murchison Falls NP & Queen Elizabeth NP).

“There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne — bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive.” (Karen Bixen)

“This is what traveling in Africa should be like. The Kenya & Tanzania adventure hits up all the highlights (and then some), and really lets you immerse yourself in East Africa in a way that’s still comfortable. The tour is great value for money, and don’t be surprised if by the end you’re already thinking about planning a return trip. It was even better than I expected! It was very well-organized, and I felt like we really did see the best of both Kenya and Tanzania. It was a nice mix of the “famous” highlights you expect to see, and also some unique local interaction.”

                  Travel insurance is essential for ALL Rock My Adventure trips.

                  Your health and safety when travelling is of the utmost importance, so it is vital that you have travel insurance policy that covers you for your trip to Africa. Adequate travel insurance is a condition of your contract with us and you will not be able to join a trip without it.

                  You must be satisfied that your insurance fully covers all your personal requirements including cancellation charges, theft, medical expenses and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. 

                  Your insurance should also cover you for any adventurous activities that you wish to do – this includes the ‘included’ activities on the tour and any ‘optional’ activities.

                  Please be aware that some hazardous activities such as (but not limited to) white water rafting on grade 5 rapids, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, safari walks, bungee jumping and sky diving may not be covered by all policies, so you may have to take out a higher level of cover.

                  Medical care is not free in Africa and even the cost of getting to hospital can be super expensive, so you need to be covered in case of a medical emergency, including air ambulance evacuation and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. For example, if your appendix bursts whilst we are in the Serengeti, you will need to be evacuated by helicopter to Nairobi. Without insurance you would need to pay for that out of your own pocket. 

                  If you are bringing along any electrical equipment such as cameras and laptops, you should also ensure your insurance covers those items too. Some policies only have this as an add-on. 

                  If you are travelling to an area that is subject to foreign office warnings, this may void your travel insurance, so you may need to take out an additional policy for the days you are in the danger zones. 

                  Please always read the small print.

                  Your tour leader will collect your travel insurance details on the first day of your trip, so please have the following information ready for them:

                  • Name of insurance provider.
                  • Your policy number.
                  • The telephone number to call in the event of an emergency.
                  • Your next of kin name and number.
