Here, wildlife roams the grassy open plains in front of majestic snow-capped mountains, nature’s wilderness contrasts with absolute luxury. It’s the combination of wildlife, natural beauty and value that has seen Kenya flourish spectacularly to justify its position as one of the best-known safari destinations in the world. Experience the Kenyan wilderness with acclaimed wildlife photographer Graeme Purdy as your expert guide, lending his expertise and assisting you in producing a collection of truly breathtaking images.
