About Kenya

Regardless of how many wildlife documentaries you may have watched, nothing prepares you for the natural grandeur of Kenya; from its rugged mountains and arid deserts to its vast freshwater lakes and dense forests. It’s a holiday destination that offers incredible natural beauty. Expect soul-stirring encounters with local Samburu and Maasai tribes and, of course, the thrills of the Great Migration. With wildebeest mega-herds moving through the Masai Mara, Amboseli’s legendary elephant herds set against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro and the majestic leopards of Samburu, it’s easy to see why the romance of an African safari was born in Kenya. Those looking for a bit of beach in between will find azure waters and white sands along the coastline, where Kenya meets the Indian Ocean.

Tick Off Your Travel Bucketlist

The annual Great Migration, where more than a million wildebeest and other species cross over to greener pastures, cannot be overestimated for its intensity, scope and spectacle. It truly is the ultimate in safari experiences.

Take to the Skies at Sunrise

Kenya has set the safari bar higher than anywhere else in Africa. Float above the plains of the Masai Mara in a hot air balloon and witness a safari from an entirely different perspective.

Visit the Giraffe Centre

A visit to the Giraffe Centre in Nairobi comes highly recommended. The centre protects the highly endangered Rothschild’s giraffe and combines serious conservation with enjoyable activities. You can hand-feed these gentle giants and you may be lucky enough to be licked by their blue, sandpapery tongues.
