Holidays in Kenya
An affordable and diverse safari experience
Lush cool rain forests and rolling hills of Mount Kenya and the Aberdares, give way to endless savannahs of the Masai Mara and adjoining conservancies, home to the great wildebeest migration. Visit Samburu for arid desert landscapes and deep river gorges. Head to Rift Valley and surrounding lakes for fabulous birding, or Amboseli for spectacular views of neighbouring Mount Kilimanjaro. An array of eco-systems offers abundant wildlife encounters, many indigenous to their regions. However long you have, a warm welcome awaits you. A real a gem of a destination!
Covering an area of 2700 sq km and being the most famous of Kenya’s parks, bordering Tanzania’s Serengeti reserve, the Mara also plays home to the great migration. An extremely popular destination, rich in wildlife, which is always worth a visit whether time is of the essence - as a fly in destination, or as part of a longer trip.
Home to large herds of elephants and boasting good views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, a trip to Amboseli makes for a photographer’s dream. Due South from Nairobi this lush park plays hosts to an array of birdlife and wildlife fed from the seasonal swamps formed from the waters of the mountain.
The Great Rift Valley
This huge crack in the earth’s crust, much of it within Kenya, plays home to the lakes of Bogoria, Baringo, Nakuru, Naivasha and Elementaita. Each lake, whether soda, saline or freshwater, offers something unique. Here you can find huge flocks of flamingos and other bird species, including 13 endangered ones, not to mention sizeable mammal populations.
