Kenya > Kenya Introduction


  • Emakoko rocks! Great setting, excellent food, outstanding hospitality. For me, Lewa was a mixed bag – good accommodations and game watching but we just didn’t synch with the people there. Sarara was my favorite place. I loved the setting and there were plenty of animals about, including a leopard that called repeatedly all around our tent the one night. Rondo was an excellent place to stay. Gorgeous gardens and lawns, scrupulously tended, with the possibility of walking directly into the forest from the back lawn, was great. The food and service were excellent. We liked Serian Camp (the camp itself) – was Paul’s favorite – and I would agree that the Mara is impressively game-rich. However, I think there are too many camps. We did have an excellent Masaii guide there (Dominic). We loved the extensive grasslands and walked everyday, on both sides of the river. Overall, we had a great time and really appreciate your excellent assistance in putting together a really enjoyable trip.

Introduction to the spectacular and diverse country of Kenya

From rugged hills and montane forests to endless savannah plains, Kenya offers incredible physical diversity. The scenery is breath-taking and the wildlife viewing is some of the finest available in the world, with the Masai Mara leading an impressive list of great safari areas. Walking safaris, horse riding safaris and mountain trekking will appeal to the more adventurous, and cultural interaction with the charismatic Maasai or Samburu is highly likely on any safari. For those looking for relaxation, the glistening white sands of the Indian Ocean coastline beckon.

Kenya’s safari history goes back to the early 1900’s and its fine tradition of personal guiding and warm hospitality still exists today. While a few wildlife parks have become commercially busy, it is a mistake to assume that exclusive safari regions, remote wilderness areas and intimate safari properties do not exist. Kenya caters for the experienced enthusiast just as easily as the first-time visitor.

Easy to reach from Europe and with a varied and well-organised internal tourism infrastructure, Kenya safaris deliver good value for money compared to other comparable destinations. In particular, Kenya offers some of the most cost effective ‘safari and beach’ combinations. Whether budget is important to you or not, this ability to easily combine incredible game-viewing with beautiful beaches has always made Kenya a wonderful family holiday or honeymoon destination.

So whether you’re looking for a specialist wildlife experience, a ‘bush & beach’ special celebration holiday, or perhaps a wonderful African adventure as a family, Kenya is the perfect destination to consider.
