Everything in absolute abundance
The density and variety of wildlife is unreal, with often more than ten different species of mammals in one spot, an anomaly that is unheard of elsewhere. Kenya boasts hoards of unique antelope such as the graceful Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelle as well as the vibrant topis making it the ultimate predator’s paradise.
The very place where safari travel originated
Kenya promises the very best game viewing, hospitality and endless breathtaking landscapes, the epitome of the true safari experience. It is without a doubt the ultimate safari destination. Exquisite luxury lodges and magical tented camps are aplenty, easily accessible and waiting to welcome you with open arms.
Home to the world-famous Masai Mara
The Masai Mara is undoubtedly most famous for the Great Wildebeest Migration, the annual pilgrimage of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle moving in search of rain-ripened grass. This is one of the world’s natural wonders and should be at the top of every bucketlist. From the minute you arrive the winning smiles and enthusiastic ‘Karibu’ Swahili for welcome will melt your heart and ensure that you never want to leave.
Something for everyone
From infinite golden savannahs to lush forests to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya, Kenya has something for everyone. Walk with and learn from the erudite Maasai guides, drift over the plains in a hot-air balloon or re-visit history where Karen Blixen spent her days in the Ngong hills on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. Kenya has so much to offer so we have picked out some of our favourites to help you have the best experience possible.
