Straddling the equator and best known for its wildlife, this popular and rewarding safari destination also has a vast and varied landscape and is home to over forty tribes. The 550 kilometres of coastline lead into savannah and plateaus, lakes and rivers, forests and mountains and scorching deserts. Running from north to south, the Great Rift Valley divides Kenya and the fascinating people reflect the environment they live in. After the onslaught of mass tourism, Kenyans have now created a new style, perfect for our clients, where guests stay in small owner-run tented camps and lodges, getting close to this incredible country and its people.
Masai Mara, one of the best places on the continent to view African game and famous for the wildebeest and zebra migration from July to September
Meru National Park where for many years George and Joy Adamson lived with their lions
Samburu and Shaba National Parks, stretching along the Ewaso Nyiro River which eventually trickles into the Lorian Swamp to the east
Laikipia Plateau, over two million acres of wild savannah which the indigenous people, settlers and ranchers have joined together to preserve as a conservation area
The seven Rift Valley Lakes, some fresh water, most saline and each attracting a variety of wildlife, birds and people
Indian Ocean coastline and islands with white sandy beaches and coral reefs
The rains fall twice a year, the main rains falling in April and May and there is sometimes rain in November. The hottest and driest months are March and October. Temperatures rarely fall below 24C in the day and 10C at night, although the higher areas can become chillier in the evening and at night. It can be windy on the coast between May and October.
