Kenya

  • Hi Rob, we had an amazing time in Kenya, just thought we’d drop you a line about each of the places that we stayed. Kicheche Laikipia – We absolutely loved this camp, it was such a nice size and the staff were brilliant. The tents were well furnished and very big, we liked sitting on the veranda and watching the elephants and buffalo down at the waterhole. The guides were very knowledgable and the area was beautiful. We saw a cheetah kill an impala which really made our trip! Kicheche Mara – our guide David was brilliant, he knew everything about all of the game and birds. We went to the local market and to a masai village from here. We saw a Serval cat and a Caracal, both of which we were told had only been spotted a couple of times since June. We also saw 2 different leopards! Waterlovers – what a beautiful place, this hotel was in such an amazing location and just felt so intimate and special. The staff were always on hand to help you find your spot in the morning and then bring drinks etc through out the day if you wanted anything. We went swimming in the sea every day, after asking the beach boys to leave us alone on the first day we weren’t too bothered by them. The food was delicious and we loved that we could go out in the evenings too, we ate at the hotel 3 evenings and went out 3 evenings. The staff were all very friendly, we saw the 2 managers each day and also the owners made an effort to come and speak to us every morning. Thank you for organising such an amazing trip for us, hopefully we wont have to wait another 6 years until we can go again!.

  • Laikipia Plateau, Kenya

    Laikipia

  • 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.

    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

  • 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.
