Kenya is a country of breathtaking beauty and great contrasts - from palm-fringed sandy beaches on the Indian Ocean to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya ( 5,199m, 16,890ft) which straddles the Equator; vast open plains and savannah, acacia woodlands, tropical rain forests, small farms,ranches and rich estates of tea, coffee, pineapple, wheat and sisal and harsh arid deserts in the north.
Kenya is the land of variety, everywhere you go there are different tribes, elegant in their finery. The culture here is a real highlight but areas such as the Masai Mara when combined with the North (Amboseli, Chyulu Hills Samburu , Laikipia & Mathews Range or Meru) are so different you feel as if you’ve been in two different countries. Kenya’s coastline is also stunning with white sand and turquoise ocean, not to mention Lamu, one of the world’s most unique islands. The Great Rift Valley also passes through Kenya and the lakes can provide a relaxing change to your safari. We’re lucky enough to work with some of Kenya’s most remote and luxurious safari camps & Lodges, so overcrowding isn’t an issue for our guests. It is the Kenyan people themselves that often make your safari here so special – they are charismatic, charming and have a fantastic sense of humour.
