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. Kenya 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 Masai Mara, Samburu and the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, unsurprisingly it also provides some of the best game viewing in Africa including the Great Wildebeest Migration. This is where elephant mingle with vast herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo, while leopard, cheetah and lion thrive. Blessed with 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.
