Kenya is one of the iconic safari destinations in Africa. It is home to some of the most sought after wildlife reserves, including the Masai Mara, which together with the Serengeti, hosts the Great Migration from July to October.

Background Info

Kenya is the vast home of a wide variety of predators and herbivores, migrating through the Masai Mara Plains every year. Kenya is rich in tribal culture and practice, where the brightly dresses Maasai people live by the earth, following the rains and avidly conserving Kenya's wildlife. Samburu National Park offers a beautiful stark landscape with endemic animals like Grevy's Zebra. Amboseli National Park nestles in the shadows of Mt Kilimanjaro, the run off from it's snow capped peaks feed the swamps of Amboseli all year round.


Kenya is East Africa's premier safari destination and fondly regarded as the 'Jewel of Africa'. We can't deny that Kenya has it all, including incredible wildlife, beautiful mountains, deserts, salt lakes, cities, traditional culture, and modern arts.

With one-tenth of all land in Kenya designated as national parks and reserves, Kenya truly is a place for devoted safari guests. The Masai Mara , possibly Kenya's most well known, has some of the biggest predator populations in Africa, so if a Big Cat safari is what you are after, this is the place to be.

Over 50 parks and reserves cover habitats from mountain forest to desert, and there are six marine parks in the Indian Ocean. Although the Masai Mara is Kenya's most famous attraction, Kenya boasts many other national parks, outstanding wildlife, villages, and beaches.
