Kenya

If you’re looking for the best place for an African safari then look no further than Kenya.

Kenya is a country in East Africa with coastline on the Indian Ocean. It encompasses savannah, lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands. It's also home to wildlife like lions, elephants and rhinos. From Nairobi, the capital, safaris visit the Maasai Mara Reserve, known for its annual wildebeest migrations, and Amboseli National Park, offering views of Tanzania's 5,895m Mt. Kilimanjaro..

Nestled in the northern part of the country lies the magnificent Serengeti ecosystem, proud of being one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, thanks to the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world. Rising above the Serengeti, stands Africa’s highest mountain, the impressive Mt. Kilimanjaro that has inspired several authors and filmmakers. Not far from here, the famous volcanic Ngorongoro Crater offers some of the most outstanding game viewings of the Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhino)..

Kenya, a land of diverse landscapes is home to a variety of wildlife attractions and cultures. The highlight of a Kenyan safari being the large scale annual Great Migration, which sees more than 1 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebras cross the Mara River. Watch as the cunning zebra let the wildebeest go first and be eaten by crocodiles who merely need to keep their mouths open.

The Maasai Mara in Kenya is one of the best safari locations to view the popular Big 5, which includes the Lion, Leopard, Cape-Buffalo, Rhino, and the majestic African Elephant. Visiting safari destinations such as the national parks and viewing the annual migration between June and September is a big tourist attraction and is listed among the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. You can come to Kenya and simply do a safari, we promise you will be beyond satisfied, but we recommend spending a little more time in this country and exploring the cultural attractions too.!

The country has a wide variety of terrains that expands from Lake Victoria to Lake Turkana and further south-east to the Indian Ocean it renders travelers a wide range of biomes to experience. During a Kenya safari, you can visit Lake Victoria, the largest tropical fresh-water lake in the world, Mount Kenya, second highest peak in Africa, or see Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, situated in Tanzania but with best views from Kenya’s Amboseli National Park. Don’t forget to include Diani Beach in Mombasa or the vibrant Arabian fairytale island of Lamu. Come to Kenya to experience the vast variety of animals and plants this country can accommodate. Making this one of the richest countries in the world when it comes to natural beauty..

Tourism in Kenya is a vital industry and Kenyans go above and beyond to accommodate guests. The main attractions being the coastal beaches and the popular Game Reserves, beside the Maasai Mara and Amboseli, the Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Park, which stretches 20,808 square kilometers (8,034 sq miles) in the South-East. Community-based tourism is valued in Kenya, many lodges and private game reserves are owned and operated by local indigenous communities. The Maasai especially own many tourism ventures.

Kenya is a democratic country, its lively political landscape attests to this. Kenyans hail from a variety of cultural groups, most notably the Kikuyu, Luu, Maasai, and Turkana. In total 62 indigenous languages are spoken in Kenya. A cultural experience is a must on any Kenya safari with many community-based tourism initiatives offering authentic cultural and wildlife experiences.

Best time to visit Kenya

Best Time In Kenya

Kenya is in the dry season period and thus the best time for wildlife viewing..

  • July to October:. It's one the of the highlights of the world, the Great Migration normally reaches the Masai Mara in July, and the enourmous number of herds stay around Maasai Mara until mid October hence making the place an ideal destination for most time of the year..
  • November to May: Kenya hits low season which means rates of lodges drop. Great opportunity to visit the country for those with tight budgets. This period is also an excellent time to view newborn animals and migratory birds between September and April.However, we don't believe in seasons for visiting Kenya, and urge guests to visit Kenya year-round
