Kenya

  • Hi Michele, we had a lovely time on safari in Kenya, thank you. Kicheche Laikipia was lovely – would highly recommend it and would very happily go back! We were hugely lucky to see two cheetah on a walk, and we got really close too. We had white and black rhino and the wild dogs and loads of lions. Mara House was lovely, and they could not have done more to look after us. We did flip for the front bedroom – Caroline won! – but to be honest, all the bedrooms were nice and the second bedroom was also pretty big. I really liked the fact that everyone who works there is Masai and proud of it, right down to the Masai dress. I think I need to diet after all the great food too! Anyway, we loved it and I can’t wait to go on safari again. Thank you so much for organising it – it really couldn’t have been better. The contrast between the two game reserves was also really interesting. Thanks again!

    Carolyn and Caroline from London travelled to the Laikipia and Masai Mara regions in Kenya

  • Masai Mara, Kenya

    Masai Mara

    Wide open plains offering some of the best game-viewing in Africa, including the wildebeest and zebra migration from late July to October. Superb ‘big cat’ viewing and home to the colourful Maasai people.

  • Samburu Game Reserve, Kenya

    Samburu

    Arid acacia scrub habitat and rocky hills typical of northern Kenya, offering beautiful but harsh scenery and fantastic general game-viewing along the Ewaso Nyiro River.

  • Laikipia Plateau, Kenya

    Laikipia

    A vast wilderness made up of private ranches, game sanctuaries and tribal lands, which between them offer exclusive game-viewing, cultural experiences, remote retreats, walking trails and horse-riding safaris.

  • Lewa Conservancy white rhino, Kenya

    Lewa Downs

    The pioneering conservancy of the Laikipia region, beginning as a rhino sanctuary and now offering fantastic all round game-viewing with Mount Kenya as a back drop. Excellent rhino viewing and some fantastic walking trails possible.

  • Meru, Kenya

    Meru

    A remote, exclusive and beautiful park with varied habitats and good all round game-viewing. Perfect for a traditional game-viewing experience without the crowds.

  • Mathews Range waterhole, Kenya

    The Mathews Range

    Thick forested slopes rise from the harsh acacia scrub of Northern Kenya. Principally a remote wilderness destination but elephant and leopard viewing can be superb. Walking and cultural experiences are excellent.

  • Great Rift Valley, Kenya

    The Great Rift Valley

    Best known for its freshwater and ‘soda’ lakes, some of which are home to vast flocks of flamingo. Nakuru is a small but beautiful park with high concentrations of wildlife.

  • Amboseli, Kenya

    Amboseli

    A mixture of acacia woodland, open marsh and dry scrub bush country, with Mount Kilimanjaro forming a spectacular back drop. Excellent general wildlife concentrations, with elephant viewing a highlight.

  • Chyulu Hills riding, Kenya

    Chyulu Hills

    Towering hills and forested lava flows give way to wide open plains and Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance. Exclusive wilderness with some good game-viewing and superb horse-riding safaris.

  • Tsavo, Kenya

    Tsavo

    A huge wilderness area which has high concentrations of game. The western section is popular with tours from Mombasa, and much of the east, certainly that north of the Galana River, is relatively under-developed for tourism.

  • Kenya coast

    The Kenya Coast

    Large hotels or private beach houses tend to dominate in touristy Mombasa and Malindi, though more boutique retreats are emerging and more escapist destinations exist in the far north and far south, away from these centres.
