Kenya > Kenya Introduction


  • Hi Michele, we had a lovely time on safari in Kenya, thank you. Kicheche Laikipia was lovely – would highly recommend it and would very happily go back! We were hugely lucky to see two cheetah on a walk, and we got really close too. We had white and black rhino and the wild dogs and loads of lions. Mara House was lovely, and they could not have done more to look after us. We did flip for the front bedroom – Caroline won! – but to be honest, all the bedrooms were nice and the second bedroom was also pretty big. I really liked the fact that everyone who works there is Masai and proud of it, right down to the Masai dress. I think I need to diet after all the great food too! Anyway, we loved it and I can’t wait to go on safari again. Thank you so much for organising it – it really couldn’t have been better. The contrast between the two game reserves was also really interesting. Thanks again!

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.
