Kenya has always epitomised everything that is Africa. It hosted the first real wildlife holidays and its diversity of landscape, people and wildlife has drawn more people to safari in here than any other country in Africa.

There is such a huge choice of national park and private concession areas in Kenya that it is possible for the discerning visitor to admire breathtaking scenery and dense game populations in peaceful surroundings. Servicing these quieter Kenya safari areas is a wide range of excellent, small, little known safari camps.

Among the better known areas for a safari holiday are the Masai Mara Reserve, host to the incredible wildebeest and zebra migration between July and October; and Amboseli National Park with stunning views of snow capped Kilimanjaro. Less famous regions our clients enjoy for safaris include the wildlife areas of Lewa Conservancy and Meru National Park. We also receive excellent feedback from areas with less big game but more varied activities (walking, horse and camel safaris, fishing and rivers to swim in) such as the beautiful Chyulu Hills, the dramatic Rift Valley scenery of Laikipia and Kenya’s lakes, and the remote Mathews Range in the north.
