Essentially, a safari is whatever you want to make of it, depending on your interests – you might be keen to game view, to be more active, or to enjoy the best of both worlds. In this day and age, there is so much on offer, opening up all sorts of avenues!

The idea of going on safari and making it an experience of a lifetime is what we’re all about at YZ. However, if necessary we can take that a step further and aim for a truly thrilling and adventurous safari, to get the adrenaline going to the max!

Kenya is well known for its range of activities, and they are really offered in an area called Laikipia. This area is made up of a lot of private and community-owned ranches that have set aside vast amounts of their land for conservation. The combination of ranch land and conservation areas offers significant benefits for the environment and has been proven to work as a great conservation model. As the land is private, the activities that are offered are really exclusive and are unique to Laikipia.
