Kenya is one of Africa’s most popular destinations, it is often credited with developing the modern tourist safari, so much so that the word safari even comes from Swahili, the official Kenyan language. Kenya offers a unique and classical style of safari that brings to mind colonial era explorations of Africa’s interior, just with a lot more comfort and none of the hardship! From romantic honeymoons to family adventures all the way through to the hardcore safari there is something for everyone.
The Masaai Mara is possibly the most famous national park in the whole of Africa and every year plays host to the incredible Wildebeest migration, one of the most amazing spectacles on the planet, however, the Masaai Mara is worth visiting even without this event being home to some of the highest density of big cats in Africa.
There are a number of other fantastic wilderness areas in Kenya that are comparatively unknown and have far fewer visitors, yet still offer world class safaris and interesting cultural experiences, our favourites are Samburu for the incredible arid landscapes and fantastic nomadic people, Meru for untamed wilds and Laikipia and Lewa’s dedication to conservation, family run properties and an array of activities.
