Why Book This Safari?

Kenya truly stole our hearts. Any of us will be happy to speak to you about our wonderful experiences, and about how they made us passionate about going back to share the magic and continue contributing to the well-being of the community we found there.

Experienced Hosts

Enjoy the comfort and safety of having a host travel with you. In reality, we don’t have to do much in destination because these trips are so well designed, but we are there just in case, and to add in some of the experiences that make this trip truly special.

Amazing Guides

Our guides are some of the best in the business…yes, we call them “ours’. The team of guides that we use are some of the most knowledgeable and personable in Kenya, and they became important to us. All of this is reflected in the experience we provide…you will feel so very welcome.

Stay Longer

Stay Longer – many guests travel to Kenya for 5 – 10 days and miss a lot. This safari does not cover all of Kenya – you’d have to be there for months for that – but it does give you a true taste and enough time in most of the iconic destinations. After travelling to get there, you will appreciate the time in this wonderful country.

We're Connected

Shelley Good
Safari Host & CruisePlus President

Shelley has been a leader in our travel business for over 20 years, and truly has the travel bug! She loves history, culture, and seeing new destinations, but there are a few that have stolen her heart…one of them being East Africa. For her, this destination is not just about seeing animals…it is about the stunning scenery and the wonderful people as well. After collecting “chosen family” in Kenya in 2023, she looks forward to hosting more trips to share this truly life-changing experience with others!

What do our clients have to say?

"I have just been on my second trip to Africa with CruisePlus. Everything is planned for you, flights, accommodations, food, game drives, as well as education sessions that give history and animal information to enhance your appreciation of the country and their struggles/successes."

Shari B.

2023 Kenya Safari

"We just returned from an amazing safari with CruisePlus. Our host Fiona and Gary were wonderful. I am sure there were times she wanted to pull her hair out but she always remained upbeat. Our guides on the safari were amazing, knowledgeable, great sense of humour and Always smiling. The safari would not have been as successful without them. They always seemed to know where to find the lions hidden in the grass and always made sure our jeeps were placed for the best view"

Lois & Dale M.

2023 Kenya Safari

"Absolutely life altering!! The animals are off the charts but it was the people that grabbed my heart!!"

Betty M.

2023 Kenya Safari

"Fantastic, perfectly seamless trip. Wonderful knowledgeable guides from whom we learned so much. Good food and beautiful accommodations. I’d do it again tomorrow!"

Vera D.

2023 Kenya Safari

"If you want to see Kenya, go with anyone. If you want to feel Kenya, go with Dave and Shelley. They know this place and these people. The guides are like family. From personal escort at the airport thru all the busy days the trip is seamless. Gratuities are paid and issues )and they were few) are taken care of. The days are busy and magical with lots of rest and reflection time. The accommodation is first class and the food delicious and more than plentiful. BUT the best part is the guides. They are so experienced, professional and truly beautiful humans. They are very proud Kenyans. Their knowledge of their country its animals flora and fauna is remarkable. Lots of safaris are fewer days but I’m sure they’d feel incomplete. Although I’d love to return I really don’t feel like I missed anything. If you choose Kenya choose CruisePlus. You won’t regret it."

Christie M.

2023 Kenya Safari

"The trip was perfect from my perspective: if what you are doing is experiencing safari, there is no point in looking further. From start to finish, it was top notch, well organized, guided expertly and accommodated wonderfully. Just go with Dave and Shelley and Twiga - you will never regret it."

Vicki H.

2023 Kenya Safari

"This was a trip of a life time that will never be forgotten. The trip was well thought out and sometimes even beautifully unexpected. We saw animals up close and person that I never thought would be possible. It was an amazing and beautiful experience to have Kenya shared with us by guides who really appreciated and took pride in where they were from. I have learned so much and will share all the information with anyone who will listen. What an experience!"

Amanda S.

16 Night Best of Kenya Safari

Jambo Jambo!

I’m Dave Frinton, founder of CruisePlus and in love with East Africa. It gives me great pleasure in presenting to you my signature safari to Kenya.  I’ve been lucky enough to have been in the country and hosted safaris 10 times – with the hope for many more to come.  After experiencing various itineraries I’ve come up with a fabulous program that (with a couple of small changes) is the same as the one we experienced with around 65 guests in January/February 2023.

There’s a lot of information to digest.  If you are serious about a soft adventure like this, I highly recommend you take the time to read through this carefully.  I’ve found that being very upfront and detailed about what to expect is best for all.

You will have lots of questions, and hopefully I will answer most of them here.  If I haven’t, then make sure and ask.  We hope that you can enjoy Kenya like we do.

Asante sana!
