Giants Of The Great Rift Valley


  • Meru National Park
  • Laikipia Plateau
  • Masai Mara National Reserve

The Experience:

Kick off your journey at Meru, where hordes of game roam the rolling grassy plains and tropical riverine forests. Head into the Great Rift Valley: a patchwork of arid plains, tangled grassy thickets and pulsing rivers. The area is packed with wildlife, including endangered species such as black rhino, wild dogs and Grevey’s zebra. Next, the Masai Mara, a stunning wilderness, offering some of the best game viewing in the world with predators following the antelope on their annual migration.

Wilds Of Shaba & Samburu


  • Samburu National Park
  • Masai Mara National Reserve
  • Shaba National Reserve

The Experience:

This truly life-enriching journey perfectly combines serenity and thrill, amazing wildlife and unique landscapes, luxury and adventure, all while giving you the opportunity to protect an endangered species. Encounter the famous ‘Samburu Special Five’, rare endemic species present only in the arid North, the famously large herds of Samburu elephants and the endangered black rhino, reintroduced to Northern Kenya after 30 years. Truly an experience that will leave you speechless.

From Beach To Bush In Luxury


  • Nairobi
  • Laikipia Plateau
  • Diani Beach

The Experience:

Kenyan holidays have the potential to be as relaxing or as exhilarating as you want to make them. With this trip, you can have the balance of both keeping at the edge of your seat and reclining in the comfort of the classic homely atmosphere of a family run Kenyan lodge. Olepangi provides the perfect place to start your trip on the wilder side with a focus on riding. After that, Laikipia Walking Safaris will keep you on you toes. Finally, on to Diani for water-sports or some well earned R&R.

Off The Beaten Path


  • Mt. Kenya
  • Laikipia Plateau
  • Lamu Island

The Experience:

If you thought you knew Kenya, think again. This itinerary takes you completely off the beaten track, to our hidden gems in the heart of central Kenya and the coast. Mount Kenya provides a backdrop for fishing in the clear waters on its lower slopes. Known for its conservancies and spectacular wildlife, Laikipia is a game-viewing hotspot. Choose a lodge that’s slightly off the tourist radar and add a personal touch to your stay. Lamu is next, a magical island that time seems to have forgotten.


Come As Guests, Leave As Family.

From our early years until now, we’ve built our company on the personal referrals and recommendations of our guests. We can think of no higher testament to our trips and commitment to customer satisfaction. Our guests return home, having not only explored some of Africa’s hidden treasures but bring back new discoveries to share, new friendships to cherish, and have had unforgettable experiences that form lifelong memories. We always say we operate each trip for our clients as if we’re arranging it for a member of our own family… and that’s because we are. From being a second home when you are away from loved ones to the place where you celebrate those birthdays, anniversaries, and honeymoons… we spare no effort in ensuring our travelers leave with much more than what they arrived with.

Featured Reviews

“One of the most spectacular trips possible and it did not disappoint. Our guide, Eliud, was extremely knowledgeable about every detail and area of our trip. From the animals and parks to the flora, fauna and people. Too many highlights to recount, we give Odyssey Safaris the highest recommendation. Eliud and his team are a step above other safaris. His professionalism, positivity and sense of humor kept us engaged for the entire trip.”


“My wife and I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and have been on a range of different trips, from budget to luxury. Our recent trip to Kenya with Odyssey was competitively priced in the former category but delivered more than some of the luxury experiences we’ve paid considerably more for. This was our second African safari and it was hands down within the top two travel experiences we’ve ever had. We really couldn’t be more pleased and Odyssey deserves all of the credit.”


“Odyssey Safaris blew our minds. Our tour guides Charles and Erastus were beyond excellent and made every effort to make this safari the trip of a lifetime. They were thoughtful, energetic, positive and so fun to interact with. Furthermore, they knew how to maximize our time on the game drives and knew how to find the right animals at the right times. All the details were covered and we were incredibly taken care of. I will recommend Odyssey to anyone, they made this family trip magical and unforgettable.”


“My wife and I used Odyssey Safari for our African honeymoon, and I wish I could give more than a 5 star review! From start to finish, everything was handled professionally and the service was flawless. We felt like celebrities from the way we were treated. Charles was our safari guide in Kenya, and he was amazing! This was the best thing we have ever done in our lives, and I would recommend (and already have) Odyssey Safaris to anyone who wants to go on a safari or honeymoon.”


“Our guides were wonderful and made every effort to provide opportunities for us to see every kind of animal residing in the parks while at the same time making sure we were safe and comfortable. They were always happy and cheerful, friendly, kind, informative and all around a pleasure to be around. Our family fell in love with them!  The helpfulness we received prior to the trip was extremely helpful and reassuring. We have traveled quite a bit, and Odyssey is by far the best travel company we have dealt with.”


“My wife and I were blessed to have a private safari with Odyssey and had Simon as our guide all week. The trip was amazing, we would not have changed a thing. Simon was truly one of the highlights of the trip. From the moment we landed at the airport in Nairobi until we departed he was by our side. We spent two years planning and researching different companies and could not have been happier with our decision to go with Odyssey and the itinerary they put together for us.”
