Welcome to Kenya

Your very own 'Out of Africa'

Kenya is a country you’ll fall in love with easily. This is the original safari destination, rich in wilderness, wildlife and fascinating cultures. It’s home to the world-renowned Masai Mara and the greatest wildlife show on earth – the wildebeest migration. 

But this exquisite East African nation is home to so much more. 

Look beyond Kenya’s trademark national parks and you’ll find yourself exploring beautiful Indian Ocean beaches, shimmering Rift Valley lakes, towering mountains, lush forests and magnificent lesser-known reserves. All this and more is in store if you choose Kenya as your next holiday destination.

Sitting on the east coast of Africa, Kenya has seen human habitation for thousands of years. To this day, it’s a truly multicultural melting pot thanks to a long, colourful and chequered history that encompasses everything from Nilotic tribes such as the red-robed Maasai using land for grazing, to the trading of spices and slaves during the days of Portuguese colonisation and the Omani Empire.

Most destinations on our Kenya holidays itineraries shine brightest between January and the end of March, when it’s mostly dry and temperatures are mild.

If you’re travelling to see the Great Wildebeest Migration July to October is the ideal time, but don’t count out the rainy seasons (mid-March to June, and October to December) – they’re still worth considering as you’ll avoid crowds and benefit from fewer tourists and lower price tags.

If a beach holiday is on the agenda and you want to avoid the extreme heat, we recommend avoiding the coastline between March and May, when temperatures – not to mention rainfall – are at their peak.

“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa – for he has so much to look forward to.”

Conservation in Kenya

Tourism is essential to Kenya’s economy and the conservation of its wilderness, wildlife and community sustainability has never been more important. The country’s big environmental issues are deforestation, water shortage (and degraded water quality), poaching and pollution.

The great news is Kenya is home to some of the most forward-thinking safari initiatives on the continent, where the benefits of your stay are genuinely and equitably shared between lodge-owners and locals.
