Kenya. The Ultimate Safari Destination.

June 15, 2017 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Kenya is the land of African superlatives. From the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya, to flamingo ringed soda lakes and the Indian Ocean coast, rolling savannah, vibrant tribes, shimmering desert and big-game wildlife, it simply has no match.

This is where the concept of the safari was born, and Kenyan safaris offer an incredible diversity of landscapes and some of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the world.

Home to many of Africa’s most celebrated national parks and game reserves, including the Samburu and the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, unsurprisingly Kenya also provides some of the best game viewing in Africa. And the jewel in its crown is undoubtedly the Masai Mara. Lying in the country’s South West, it is effectively the northern continuation of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and provides the stage for one of the natural wonders of the animal kingdom – the annual wildebeest migration, when over two million wildebeest and zebra move between the Masai Mara and the Serengeti in Tanzania from July through to September each year in search of greener pastures.

But the Mara has much more to offer than ringside seats to the Great Migration. Its rich ecosystem of open savannah, woodlands and tree-lined rivers attracts a spectacular array of wildlife all year round. Famed for its Big Cats, as well as the remainder of the Big Five, this is is where elephant mingle with vast herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo, while leopard, cheetah and lion thrive. Throw in a huge array of activities – from ballooning and horse-riding to bush-walking, camel trekking and vintage biplane excursions – Kenya will always be a fabulous safari destination.

One of Kenya’s best places to stay, Sanctuary Retreats’ award-winning tented safari camp, Sanctuary Olonana, is situated on a private stretch of the Mara River in the heart of the Mara. Winner of Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2016, this small and exclusive luxury safari camp has been built along sustainable lines, which has also earned it a Gold Award from Ecotourism Kenya. Game drives, cultural visits, bush dinners, sun-downers, scenic flights and balloon rides, all ensure that a stay at Sanctuary Olonana will be a truly memorable one.
