Kenya was one of the first real safari destinations – home to some of Africa’s most famous national parks and reserves, with vast rolling plains, great lakes and wildernesses, rich in African wildlife
When people think of an African Safari , Kenya if frequently the first to come to mind. From the stampeding magnificent migration herds of wildebeest and zebra of the Mara following the summer rains and sweet grasses in an annual pilgrimage called the Great Migration , to the cultures of the Maasai. But this is just a drop in the ocean of what Kenya has to offer, Rendille and Samburu, and the Pink Flamingos of the Rift Valley Lakes with the majestic Mount Kenya.
From hand feeding Giraffes, to adopting orphaned elephants to taking breathtaking balloon safaris at dawn. There is a lot to do in Kenya.
The big 5, a beautiful diversity of landscapes, animals, bird and plant life and fascinating cultures. Kenya is endowed with all these and more.
The incredible diversity of landscapes, cultures, wildlife and activities mean endless opportunities for visitors to Kenya. Kenya offers a diverse range of environments all within relatively close proximity to one another, and has an excellent domestic travel infrastructure. Kenya’s rich diversity of wildlife means that no two experiences in the wild are ever the same. Visitors to Kenya can experience and see completely different things. In a single trip to Kenya, you can visit tropical forests, beautiful beaches, and deserts, climb mountains and explore the wild. In Kenya, it is possible to plan a safari that blends adventure and relaxation, luxury and natural simplicity, social experiences and solitude.
