East Africa: Kenya and Tanzania Safaris

Most people come to Kenya and Tanzania to experience elephants, lions, rhinos–the “big five” animals. You will see every animal you could imagine, and then some. As is true on many trips with Wilderness Inquiry, those things that are unexpected often define the experience. On our adventures in East Africa, that might include the connection formed with the people, gaining understanding of a culture, or having the chance to serve and make a difference. You will meet and visit with members of the Maasai, Samburu, Kikuyu or other tribes, and learn about their way of life.This is exactly what sets our African Safaris apart; our local connections to the land and the people who live there.

The idea for the East Africa safaris with Wilderness Inquiry was born in 2003 on a Mt. Kilimanjaro climbing trip that included Andy Walz and Richard Muthoga Mwaura before they worked with WI. They dreamed of sharing their appreciation and knowledge of East Africa with fellow adventurers. This dream became a reality in 2005, and WI has been conducting safaris in Kenya and Tanzania since then.

We work very closely with local guides and partners in each country who know the people, the land, and of course the animals. In addition to safari wildlife adventures, we partner with local schools and organizations to host service safaris. Depending on the trip you take, you may have a chance to visit and serve with them. Check out our Kenya blog and Tanzania blog to read stories about our past safaris and watch videos about participants’ experiences.

Going halfway around the world to East Africa is truly the adventure of a lifetime for anyone. For more information about adventures in East Africa please contact us at 612-676-9400 or info@wildernessinquiry.org.
