Kenya

  • Hi Rob, we had an amazing holiday – one of the best holidays in fact. Mara Toto – we were extremely lucky at Mara Toto – we were the only ones at the camp so were v spoilt. Saw a baby leopard near the camp most days, and with its Mum one day. The philosophy of this camp is fantastic – healthy food, not stodgy at all and very innovative, we had some amazing breakfast/lunches out in the bush. Amy – the manager was great. She used to be a cook and personal trainer in a former life, so was able to influence it in this way. We definitely want to go back. Klein’s Camp – they accommodated all our safari needs – we went out for a full day to see if we could find a crossing and also for 2 night drives – the first night we did not see a lot (except for an amazing bush baby bouncing from tree to tree) BUT the second night we saw 3 kills! There was a pride of very well fed lions that we found just before sun downers – by the time we finished and it had gone dark – they were up and about looking for dessert! They brought down a wildebeest, a big zebra that took ages to die 🙁 and a baby buffalo 🙁 Even the guides were taking photos as it was so rare to see this many in the space of 15mins, let alone one night! The meals at Klein’s were v average and very unlike what we would expect and have experienced from an And Beyond camp. The Palms – was outstanding – and again we had the place to ourselves almost, as only one other villa was occupied for 2 of the 4 nights!

Wildlife regions and attractions in Kenya

A key consideration when travelling to Kenya is the subject of exclusivity. Kenya has long had a reputation as a thriving tourist destination with the negative connotation that the safari regions are very busy. In some of the mainstream National Parks and Reserves this is true to an extent, though there are always ways to minimise your exposure to the busiest areas. However, what many people do not realise is that Kenya also offers a wide range of incredibly exclusive and remote safari and wilderness experiences.

Our holidays through Kenya will often combine more famous regions such as the Masai Mara with more exclusive private game conservancies, community lands or lesser known National Parks where you can easily enjoy a true wilderness experience, sometimes alongside top quality game-viewing. Even in the Masai Mara, known as a spectacular but touristy game-viewing region, a number of conservancies have recently been developed which offer really good levels of exclusivity.
