Kenya

Favoured by family groups and seasoned travellers who know where to find some of Africa's best

East Africa's traditional favourite had its heyday in the 70's and 80's as the simple choice for first-timers on safari in Africa. Great minibus convoys from large hotels removed the sparkle for some time as unsuspecting punters ran with the herds. In more recent times popularity has been dented by some misfortune. Kenya has a mature safari industry with excellent infrastructure and some well-seasoned outfitters taking exceptional care of their guests. 

In truth - Kenya is very firmly placed on our safari map!

It's favoured by seasoned travellers and remains ideal for newbies. You'll find prolific game, warm welcoming people and a simply outstanding selection of small camps and lodges with amazing weather to boot.

The Masai Mara, the country's most visited national reserve remains famous for its vast, open plains and the annual migration between July and October.

Amboseli is a short hop from Nairobi. It's a favourite amongst photographers world over for its elephants and full-frame views over plains to Kilimanjaro.

The Laikipia, Meru and the Northern Frontier District have been a reasonably well kept secret for decades. This is where afficianados, luxury-seekers, wild-adventurers and closely knit families and circles of friends find some of the best safari holidays on the continent.

The popular coastal haunts have centred around the large resorts of Mombasa in the south.  The northern stretches offer world-class sport fishing at Malindi, unspoiled Swahili culture with quiet and outstanding beach breaks in the Lamu Archipelago.

Top Kenya safari ideas

Favourite places

Walking safari in the Mara from Elephant Pepper Camp

The Masai Mara

Kenya's primary wildlife attraction especially with the annual migration in abundance usually from around July to October. The larger eco-system includes the National Reserve plus a much larger expanse of Maasai tribal lands on the Group Ranches. We support a small selection camps offering first class guides in quieter spots in the Mara. Available on a first-come-first-served basis only.

Elephant in Amboselli

Amboseli

Best known for unrivalled views of Mount Kilimanjaro and its large population of free-ranging elephants. Amboseli together with the twin National Parks of Tsavo East and West forms a massive wilderness reserve with over 10 million acres. Framing the vast plains of Tsavo, and lying within view of majestic Mt Kilimanjaro, are the Taita and the gentle Chyulu Hills.

Camel walk on Laikipia Plateau by Karin Bloem

Laikipia and beyond

A massive wild area combining small farming communities, huge private ranches, community and conservation projects within Samburu and Maasai lands. The Northern Frontier District extends further north to even wilder lands and deserts with some fairly untamed people. It's where our real exploration in Kenya takes place with camel safaris and walking in wild places.
