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.
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.
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.
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.
The Matthews 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
