OUR SAFARIS

 
  • Masai Mara

    Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve is arguably the best place on earth to see wildlife, especially big cats, as the vast prey-filled plains are ideal hunting grounds for lion and cheetah.

  • Amboseli National Park

    Boasting a variety of different mammal and bird species across five different types of habitat, Amboseli is one of Kenya’s best national parks when it comes to unsurpassed safari experiences.

  • Laikipia

    A safari in Laikipia can be one of the most rewarding experiences in East Africa. Not only is there an abundance of wildlife including the Big Five, but there are also some rare species that are difficult to find elsewhere on the continent.

  • Kenya Beaches

    Ask most people what comes to mind when they think of Kenya, and the answer is usually safaris and wildlife. However, Kenya also has 300 miles of idyllic white sand beaches running along the tranquil waters of the glistening Indian Ocean.

  • Samburu National Reserve

    Tailor-made safari holidays in Samburu National Reserve are really special. The more common elephants, lions and giraffes live alongside rarer species not found elsewhere in Africa.

  • Chyulu Hills National Park

    Chyulu Hills National Park is unquestionably one of Kenya’s most aesthetically pleasing safari destinations. The area comprises largely of luscious green rolling hills and endless African skies that stretch beyond the distant peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.

  • Tsavo National Park

    Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks combine to make Kenya’s biggest and oldest protected wildlife area. An abundance of wildlife including the Big Five reside across a variety of different habitats. A Tsavo safari holiday is a true adventure in the wild.

  • Meru National Park

    A safari in Meru National Park is a wonderfully exciting experience. Less visited than some of Kenya’s other parks and reserves, it makes for a perfect ‘off the beaten track’ safari holiday.

  • Nairobi

    Nairobi is the capital of Kenya, formed back in 1899 by British colonialists who used it as a hub for the Ugandan railway. It is one of the most prosperous cities in Africa, with a thriving industry and a developing cultural scene.

When to go

 

One of the best times to visit Kenya is during the dry season between June and October, when animals congregate around permanent water sources and are easier to spot. The Great Migration in Kenya usually occurs from mid-July to mid-October, which is peak season so booking well in advance is advised.

 

The weather in Kenya between the months of November and March is still good, with the short rains that bring life to the plains making this an excellent time for wildlife viewing. The parks will be less crowded and you’ll have the chance to see new-born animals and migratory birds.

 

Wildlife viewing is more difficult between April and May as the season of ‘long rains’ makes animal sightings difficult and travel can become trickier.
