From the deserts of the north to the teeming plains of the Mara, the palm-fringed beaches to the snow-capped mountains, Kenya has it all.
Kenya was the original birthplace of safari holidays, a diverse destination with savannah grasslands, lakelands, mountain highlands and the dramatic Great Rift Valley, all offering seriously good game, with the 300 miles of Indian Ocean coastline, boasting powder-soft, white-sand beaches. Home to the Maasai Mara, and the stunning Laikipia Plateau, this is undoubtedly one of Africa’s top safari destinations.
Southwest Kenya holds the great expanse of the Maasai Mara National Reserve renowned for the wildebeest Great Migration and fantastic Big Five sightings. The Maasai Mara and its surrounding conservancies are a must-visit for anyone planning a Kenya safari holiday.
To the southeast lies Amboseli, Kenya’s second most popular holiday destination for wildlife. Located near the Tanzanian border, Amboseli offers magnificent views of the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. This area is famous for its huge herds of elephant and unsurprisingly, excellent for elephant viewing.
Neighbouring Amboseli is Kenya’s hidden treasure, the Chyulu Hills. This area offers exceptional luxury safari holidays in one of the country’s most untouched parks. Between the Chyulu Hills and the Kenyan Coast, is the land of Kenya’s ‘big tuskers’. If you love enormous elephants, you will love Tsavo East and Tsavo West.
It is said no one can return from Kenya unchanged, the tawny lions will prowl your memory, the gentle lope of a lioness will catch your breath, and the great herds of elephant forever roam your imagination.
