Why Travel to Kenya?
Kenya is a country steeped in safari history dating back to the late 19th century with the famous big game hunting safaris. Hunting is no longer allowed in Kenya but the wonderful game viewing and landscapes that attracted those adventurers is still very much part of modern-day Kenya now.
- Spectacular game viewing from the big to the small across a range of habitats and eco-systems. Relatively easy to scoop up the Big 5, if that is your aim. But you will soon be entranced by the all the others.
- Catch up with Wildebeest & Zebra Migration from late July to early October in The Maasai Mara.
- The Maasai Mara and the Mara Conservancies, Lake Nakuru, Amboseli, Laikipia, the Northern Rangeland Trust, Samburu, Shaba, the Chuylus.
- Climb Mt Kenya or The Aberdares.
- Some of the richest bird-viewing areas to be found in East Africa. 1134 species to chose from but 150-200 is a very respectable score on one safari. Plenty of specials to catch the eye such as the Somali Ostrich.
- Specialised conservation programs for elephant, wild dog and rhino some available
- Private conservancies with boutique lodges and camps and a range of totally private & exclusive camps and bush homes. More freedom to get out of the car and get the African dust in your shoes.
- Game viewing, walking, horse riding, camel treks and fresh-water fishing (we recommend tag and release fishing options). Balloon flights and helicopter safaris.
- Lazing on the beach, kite surfing, diving, snorkeling & deep-sea fishing (we recommend tag and release fishing options).
