OUR TOP EXPERIENCES
A Kenya safari is the original adventure to Africa; it is no surprise that the BBC have made many a documentary on the plains on the Masai Mara. The Masai Mara is one of the most popular parks and a safari here can be relatively busy with tourists - a little like The Kruger in South Africa. To avoid this, head north for quite a different safari experience.
In geographical terms, Kenya sits on the coast of East Africa adjoining the glorious Indian Ocean. To the north is Ethiopia, the west Uganda, and the south Tanzania. Kenya is an incredibly diverse country and encompasses a variety of landscapes including savannah, lake lands (The flamingos of Lake Nakuru), valleys, desert, forest and mountain highlands.
The capital, Nairobi is in south of the country and often the starting point to a Kenya Safari. The world famous Masai Mara is South west of the capital bordering The Serengeti. Travelling over the Great Rift Valley into central Kenya you will encounter stunning lakes, lush savannah, forests and mountain ranges, including the country's highest peak, Mt Kenya. Further north the land becomes increasingly more arid and here you will find unique species of wildlife and the most extraordinary pockets of people surviving in a relatively hostile environment.
Is Kenya safe?
Kenya has had a relatively turbulent recent history, marred by terrorist groups which are threatening most of the world. It suffers from corruption at higher levels, but on the ground for tourists, especially when on safari, it is generally a safe and predictable country. If you are concerned at all though, please ring us for a chat or alternatively visit the foreign office website.
