Luxury Safaris to Kenya
Kenya is renowned as one of the top safari destinations in Africa, from the grasslands of the Masai Mara, the arid region of Samburu National Park, the conservation success of Laikipia and Amboseli National Park with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. Kenya has it all from rich, colorful cultures, incredible wildlife viewing, vast landscapes and small, privately owned and run safari camps and lodges.
Safari to Kenya really does it all from the diverse and authentic cultures, game rich grassy plains, topped off with pristine beaches, it is no surprise tourists have been coming on safari to Kenya for many decades. The word safari is Swahili for “Journey” and many believe this is where the concept of the safari first began.
Kenya is most famous for the Masai Mara and the annual wildebeest and zebra migration that cross back and forth over the Mara River. Every year millions of wildebeest and zebra make their way north from the Serengeti National Park to the Masai Mara in search of fresh grasses after the rains. As the herds move north, they cross over the crocodile infested waters, often with dramatic consequences. Outside of the migration season, the Masai Mara is still one of the best safari destinations in Africa. When the herds have moved off, it gives the animals a chance to come out and so it often offers guests a more diverse Kenyan safari experience.
Aside from the famous Masai Mara, a safari to Kenya offers a wide variety of safari options including Amboseli National Park with its iconic Kilimanjaro backdrop to the arid north, home to the colorful and proud Samburu people.
A safari to Kenya offers guests one a unique opportunity to stay in small, owner run safari camps and lodges that support local communities and conservation projects.
With its central location, Kenya is a safari destination that easily combines with many other African destinations.
