Kenya

  • Hi Rob, we had an amazing time in Kenya, just thought we’d drop you a line about each of the places that we stayed. Kicheche Laikipia – We absolutely loved this camp, it was such a nice size and the staff were brilliant. The tents were well furnished and very big, we liked sitting on the veranda and watching the elephants and buffalo down at the waterhole. The guides were very knowledgable and the area was beautiful. We saw a cheetah kill an impala which really made our trip! Kicheche Mara – our guide David was brilliant, he knew everything about all of the game and birds. We went to the local market and to a masai village from here. We saw a Serval cat and a Caracal, both of which we were told had only been spotted a couple of times since June. We also saw 2 different leopards! Waterlovers – what a beautiful place, this hotel was in such an amazing location and just felt so intimate and special. The staff were always on hand to help you find your spot in the morning and then bring drinks etc through out the day if you wanted anything. We went swimming in the sea every day, after asking the beach boys to leave us alone on the first day we weren’t too bothered by them. The food was delicious and we loved that we could go out in the evenings too, we ate at the hotel 3 evenings and went out 3 evenings. The staff were all very friendly, we saw the 2 managers each day and also the owners made an effort to come and speak to us every morning. Thank you for organising such an amazing trip for us, hopefully we wont have to wait another 6 years until we can go again!.

Introduction

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.
