Kenya

  • Hi Rob, we arrived home safely from yet another great safari experience. You will be pleased to know that the game viewing was exceptional and the best we have ever seen in all of our trips. We saw what was the best migration for three years and watched ten thousand Wildebeest crossing the Mara river at a spectacular crossing point. We also saw our first ever successful Cheetah hunt along with wonderful sightings of Leopard, Lion and Rhino. Another good combination of areas, properties and fantastic guiding throughout. Mara House exceeded all expectations and we thought it was a perfect property to relax in at the end of our trip. Linda and I were so pleased that 16 years after our visit to the original Rekero cottages we were lucky to be re-united and guided by Fred, who was our guide then. We were also pleased to see Sonja again, who looked after us brilliantly. Thanks again for putting together another superb trip.

Introduction

Introduction to the spectacular and diverse country of Kenya

From rugged hills and montane forests to endless savannah plains, Kenya offers incredible physical diversity. The scenery is breath-taking and the wildlife viewing is some of the finest available in the world, with the Masai Mara leading an impressive list of great safari areas. Walking safaris, horse riding safaris and mountain trekking will appeal to the more adventurous, and cultural interaction with the charismatic Maasai or Samburu is highly likely on any safari. For those looking for relaxation, the glistening white sands of the Indian Ocean coastline beckon.

Kenya’s safari history goes back to the early 1900’s and its fine tradition of personal guiding and warm hospitality still exists today. While a few wildlife parks have become commercially busy, it is a mistake to assume that exclusive safari regions, remote wilderness areas and intimate safari properties do not exist. Kenya caters for the experienced enthusiast just as easily as the first-time visitor.

Easy to reach from Europe and with a varied and well-organised internal tourism infrastructure, Kenya safaris deliver good value for money compared to other comparable destinations. In particular, Kenya offers some of the most cost effective ‘safari and beach’ combinations. Whether budget is important to you or not, this ability to easily combine incredible game-viewing with beautiful beaches has always made Kenya a wonderful family holiday or honeymoon destination.

So whether you’re looking for a specialist wildlife experience, a ‘bush & beach’ special celebration holiday, or perhaps a wonderful African adventure as a family, Kenya is the perfect destination to consider.
