Straddling the equator on the eastern coast of the African continent, Kenya remains a firm favourite with those wanting an authentic wildlife experience. From immense savannahs to the dramatic Great Rift Valley and shimmering great lakes the exquisite Indian Ocean beaches Kenya offers visitors a ‘one stop shop’ holiday experience.

Without a doubt the main attraction is the abundance of wildlife that calls Kenya home. With over 40 national parks and reserves, Kenya gives you the chance to see Lions lazing in the long grasses of the Maasai Mara, the elusive leopard relaxing the branches of the umbrella like Acacia trees, the majestic elephants and intimating Cape buffalo ambling to their favourite waterholes or perhaps the endangered black Rhino munching on the leafy bushes & succulent berries.

One of the most incredible spectacles in the natural world occurs each year in the Maasai Mara reserve in the south-western corner of Kenya. Between late July and October over a million wildebeests, zebra and antelopes travel from the Serengeti chasing the rain refreshed grasses and new shoots.

For avid bird enthusiasts, the Great Rift Valley’s lakes are where you can spot a plethora of both residential and migratory birdlife. See giant flocks of flamingos congregating in their millions bathing the lakes in a sea of pink or head to the scrub lands for guinea-fowl, go away birds and varieties of rollers and barbets.

On your travel pass by traditional villages where local tribespeople dwell in in huts made with mud, sticks and grass. The most iconic of the tribes are the Maasai and Samburu who can be seen in their bright red cloaks and beadwork collars. If you have time and with the approval of the tribes chief make a visit within the village walls for a glimpse into local living.

The coast of Kenya with mile upon mile of white sands is the perfect place to relax and unwind after your magical animal encounter. Luxury and secluded resorts sit on the shores of the Indian Ocean and the surrounding coastal islands where attentive service, peace and tranquillity are the order of the day.
