 Experience Kenya and its 'melting pot' appeal as the people of West, African plains and forests meet in this bustling East African state. Throughout history western and European influences have had their effect on the cultural fabric of Kenya and what you see and feel today on your Kenya cultural safari is undoubtedly an eclectic fusion of the best with the indigenous ethnic.

The most important colonial tradition that survives in Kenya is the concept of safari tours that was thought of by the first European settlers who wanted to discover this magic world.

Travel to deep into the enthralling Masai land and tour the Kenya wildernesses where man and beast have lived in perfect harmony since time immemorial. Let the mountains, forests, lakes and coasts of Kenya weave their spell on you on your Kenya cultural safari with Kenya Wild Safari.

See the land of Mombasa and Nairobi and watch with wonder as local tribes perform wild rituals that are enthralling as well as intimidating on your Kenya cultural safari with Kenya Wild Safari.

We partake to facilitate your opportunity to explore and enjoy the diverse cultural and traditional practices of different tribes of Kenya.

The major tribes in Kenya are Luo, Kalenjin, Kamba, Kikuyu and Luhya which together account for 70% of the total population. In their rural homes, these tribes exhibit distinct cultural code of practices and traditions peculiar to each [pretty different from the others]. We are flexible in these itineraries as the number of days depends on which tribe, season, occasion and distance from the starting point
