Kenya is fast becoming one of the long-haul destinations of choice for the discerning UK traveller. With sunshine throughout the year, temperatures frequently in excess of 30 ˚c and direct flights to Nairobi from Heathrow it is not hard to understand why. Add to that the country’s rich and varied African culture, a beautiful landscape in which to enjoy Kenya safari holidays, together with its azure seas and golden beaches, and one has all the elements for a holiday of a lifetime.

The word ‘safari’ means ‘to make a journey’ in the Swahili language and, when you choose one of our safari holidays in Kenya, you are guaranteed a totally unique journey. Safaris in Kenya are not just about the animals, though the visitor will see the most stunning wildlife at close quarters, including the ‘big five’ of the elephant, buffalo, rhino, leopard and lion. Kenya safaris offer far more; the opportunity not just to see, but to be part of a timeless African landscape and to experience being at one with all the wildlife that makes its home there.
Kenya safari holidays are available throughout the year, and each season offers its own unique experience. July to September, for instance, offers one the opportunity to witness the spectacular wildebeest migration across the Masai Mara National Park. Up to a million wildebeest, gazelle and zebra take part in this annual migration and, as they travel, they are shadowed by their natural predators from the big cat family.

A number of styles of accommodation are available for Kenya safaris, including both luxury lodges and, for the more adventurous, tented camps out in the bush. We are able to put together a package to suit your individual needs and interests, and one of our team of Kenya experts will be happy to advise.
Safaris in Kenya take place in the country’s national parks. Each of Kenya’s 50 parks has its own unique character and its own variations of landscape and wildlife; from plains to mountains and deserts to lakes. Safari holidays can be tailored to take in several of Kenya’s national parks.
Travel within the parks is normally by 4x4 vehicle, although you will also be given the opportunity to explore on foot in order to enjoy observing the wildlife at close quarters, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells of the real Africa. At every stage you will be accompanied by an expert guide who will ensure your safety and add to your enjoyment of the whole safari experience by sharing his or her knowledge and enthusiasm.
Where better to relax after an exhilarating safari across the plains of Kenya but to lie on warm, golden sands beside the sparkling Indian Ocean? Kenya’s beautiful coastline and her small, relaxed resorts offer excellent beach holidays and guaranteed sunshine. Combining a beach holiday with safari holidays in Kenya, means that one can enjoy a vacation that will provide delightful memories for a whole lifetime.

Attractive as the prospect may seem, Kenyan beach holidays don’t have to be just about lying in the sun and relaxing. For those who like to have fun by expending some energy, there are plenty of opportunities to swim, sail, wind surf, go rafting or to try your hand at deep sea fishing.
There is much to explore along Kenya’s coastline too, with spectacular coral reefs and enchanting offshore islands to visit. Standards of accommodation are excellent and travellers can enjoy fine dining from a variety of cuisines.
