Kenya has a long history as a safari destination and has been made famous by numerous writers and movies over the years. It is well loved for its hospitality, many family-owned safari operators and excellent service!
The main areas of Kenya to consider are:
The Masai Mara National Reserve which offers breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and fantastic wildlife viewing all year. The reserve comprises the Masai Mara National Park and numerous private concessions around it. The Masai Mara National Park covers an area of around 1 500km² and forms the northernmost part of the Greater Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. The National Park can get busy in peak season, but the surrounding reserves offer a wonderfully private and exclusive experience. The area is home to the Big Five and hosts high concentrations of big cats. From August to October, the Masai Mara plays host to the wildebeest migration when millions of wildebeest move here from Tanzania and eventually back, truly a sight to behold!
The Laikipia area in north-central Kenya comprises of a number of conservancies many of them home to the Big Five. The conservancies boast some of the most successful conservation initiatives in Africa, notably with rhinos. The conservancies also offer fantastic family safaris, as well as real adventure mobile and fly camping options in some of the more remote wilderness areas. The accommodation varies greatly from luxury intimate owner operated lodges, to more family orientated and affordable camps. Activities whilst on safari is second to none and include horse riding, fishing, sleep-outs, conservation and community excursions to name a few.
Nairobi the capital of Kenya is often a stopover before or after a safari and offers some delightful accommodation options and experiences. The suburb of Karen named after writer Karen Blixen is where many of these establishments are located. The Karen Blixen Museum is worth a visit and the well-known Giraffe Manor is a favourite of many.
The southern Kenyan coast offers white sand beaches and tropical reefs for those who wish to combine some time at the beach with their safari.
Gorilla and chimp trekking safaris to Uganda and Rwanda can and also be arranged as extensions to any east African safari.
