  • Luke and Caroline from Berkshire travelled to Kenya & TanzaniaHi Rob, Caroline and I would like to thank you for organising the most wonderful trip that exceeded all expectations for our silver wedding anniversary holiday. In the Serengeti we saw a crossing of Wildebeest across the Mara river and crocs taking their share. We were lucky enough to see all the big cats – Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs as well as plenty of Elephants, Giraffes, Hippos, Buffalo, Hyena, Zebra, Ostrich, Baboon, Bat eared foxes, plus many more. In short, fantastic and we loved the Kirurumu North camp (once we got used to the Zebra and Wildebeest roaming through camp!). In Ruaha we saw several prides of lions, cheetahs climbing trees, jackals, greater and lesser Kudu and an Eagle owl . It was interesting to see the elephants digging for water in the sand river and the Mwagusi camp team organised a day of private guiding followed by a wonderful champagne and cake sundowner on the actual day of our anniversary which was great. In Selous we had Elephants, Hippos, Bushbabies and Genet Cats in camp (the last two joining us on our dinner table!). We spent time with a family of wild dogs (sightings are not frequent we understand) and saw several Lions (including one up a tree with his kill below!). We also saw many birds including eagles, bee-eaters, pelicans, storks and a swarm of killer bees! Selous Impala organised a lovely champagne and nibbles sundowner at the end of our afternoon river safari followed by an anniversary bush dinner at camp complete with our own fire! On Mafia we swam with whale sharks, snorkelled over excellent coral in the marine park with lion fish, moray eels and many others. Thanks again to you and the team for a great job!Luke and Caroline from Berkshire travelled to Kenya & Tanzania

  • 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.
