Kenya is known as “big-game” country. It is in this intoxicating region that the notion of the Swahili word “safari”, meaning “to journey”, was born.
Reminiscent of a romantic, pioneering era, made famous by the book and movie “Out Of Africa”, Kenya is the original “Big Five Safari” destination. With over forty national parks and game reserves, including the Maasai Mara, Tsavo East and Tsavo West, Amboseli and Samburu National Parks. Kenya is a diverse country offering many rewards for first-time and seasoned safari travellers alike.
The Maasai Mara, part of the greater Serengeti ecosystem, is unashamedly one of the best destinations for game viewing throughout the year. The sweeping plains are home to enormous herds of wildebeest during their annual migration, as well as a variety of Big Cats and plains game. The iconic Great Rift Valley is a haven for birdwatchers as huge flocks, mostly flamingos and pelicans, happily share their spectacular home with a plethora of other wildlife. Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru and Lake Elementaita are the most renowned for their incredible birdlife. Visitors are treated to sightings of other wildlife too, including Rothschild’s giraffe and white rhino.
Magnificent wildlife, exceptional accommodation, palm-fringed beaches and warm and friendly people welcome guests to this piece of heaven. Encounter the greatest concentration of free-ranging wildlife on earth and immerse yourself in the customs of the proud Maasai people.
