Kenya

Magical Kenya – a timeless world waiting to be explored.

 Feel the Swahili coastline sand between your toes, dive its magnificent coral reefs, then set off in a hot air balloon across its famed Masai Mara grasslands. 

Experience the freedom of what vultures see while they are wheeling above the plains alert for tell-tale movements. You’ll watch snorting hippos, loping giraffe and lions on a kill. These are just some of the many intoxicating experiences magical Kenya has to offer. And when you touch down, witness a pink mirage of over one million shimmering flamingos and, if you’re there at the right time of year, witness the greatest wildlife show on earth – the annual wildebeest and zebra migration pursued by a bevy of over-fed predators.

For the more energetic, climb Mount Kenya, a UNESCO World Heritage site and Africa’s second highest mountain, or take a visit into the world of the indigenous Maasai warriors – with their beautiful red traditional dress – who traverse the huge valleys of golden grasslands.

Safaris in Kenya offer travellers the perfect combination of African tradition and the best wildlife experiences that the continent has to offer.
