The home of safari

Imagine floating over the mega herds of the Great Migration in a hot-air balloon with views of acacia tree-dotted plains and the winding Mara River stretching as far as the eye can see. Or wandering through the wildlife-rich savannah along ancient paths led by a Maasai guide while learning about the age-old traditions of their tribe. Kenya is proudly the birthplace of the safari and remains one of the greatest wildlife destinations in the world.

What stands out most when speaking to clients after a trip to Kenya is the life-changing relationships they've formed. Whether spending time with Maasai learning how to track and identify wildlife, or with lodge managers learning about sustainable tourism, they always return home inspired.

A blend of culture and nature

With the spectacle of the Great Migration, when two million wildebeest and zebras brave death-defying dives into the depths of the Mara River in their annual round-trip to and from the Serengeti, Kenya is the perfect destination for those seeking adventure, culture and immersive wildlife experiences.

Follow the frontier southeast to see Amboseli’s super tusker elephants backed by the instantly recognisable white peak of Kilimanjaro. North of Nairobi, the plains of Laikipia are a haven for endangered species, especially rhinos, African wild dogs and giraffes, while even further in, Samburu county is ruggedly beautiful with fascinating cultural experiences and community-led conservation projects. Beyond this, the Rift Valley’s saline lakes, deserts and volcanic wilds are best explored by helicopter.

Easily combined with Tanzania, or gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda, Kenya works well in a multi-country itinerary while also standing strong as a stand-alone destination. Please get in touch to start planning your perfect custom-designed journey.
