Why choose a safari in Kenya?
Kenya is a magnificent safari destination in the east of Africa, located on the Equator and bordered by the Indian Ocean. You can visit Kenya all year round, and the country is an excellent choice if you are looking to experience a traditional and fascinating safari destination famous for its varied landscapes and incredible wildlife.
What is there to see and do in Kenya?
Kenya is one of our most popular destinations, and gives you the chance to experience the impressive countryside and wildlife at first hand.
Your safari holiday will be based around one or more of the most notable national parks in Kenya. For example, your holiday may include a safari in Masai Mara National Park, which is the Kenyan part of the world-famous Serengeti National Park.
The numerous national parks in Kenya share one feature: They are all home to huge populations of wild animals. But that is where the similarities end. Whereas Amboseli National Park, for example, is best known for its elephants, in Lake Naivasha you will find lots of hippos and a rich bird life.
See which national parks in Kenya you have the opportunity to visit on each holiday.
Highlights of Kenya
Our guests’ favourite experiences in Kenya are as almost as varied as the country’s landscapes. However, many guests do mention the following in particular:
- The Karen Blixen Museum at the foot of Ngong Hill
- The visit to a Masai village, where guests meet people from the local warrior tribe, the Masai
- The huge migration of gnus and zebras in Masai Mara National Park
- The balloon safari over the savannah at sunrise
- The giant herds of elephant in Amboseli National Park
No matter what you remember most fondly when you return home, your holiday in Kenya is sure to leave you with a host of fond memories to cherish.
You can choose between nine different Kenyan holidays, lasting from eight to sixteen days. Moreover, you have every opportunity to combine your safari with a stay on the wonderful beaches of Mombasa or Zanzibar, or a city break in Dubai, where you can experience a wonderful combination of both beach and city.
Beach holiday in Mombasa
With its miles and miles of sandy beaches lining the Indian Ocean, Mombasa is simply made for relaxing in beautiful surroundings. Mombasa has everything you could wish for in a beach holiday: brilliant white sandy beaches, azure water and a stunning coral reef that makes this the ideal place to go snorkelling.
Two of our holidays start and finish with a beach holiday in Mombasa, and feature the opportunity to go on ‘fly-in safaris’ to some of the most popular national parks in Kenya.
From Mombasa, you can also participate in a variety of half- and full-day excursions. For example, you can head out to Wasini Island or enjoy a guided tour of the city of Mombasa itself. All the supplementary options are listed under those holidays that include a beach holiday in Mombasa.
Beach holiday on the island of Zanzibar
Round off your holiday in Kenya with a beach holiday on the island of Zanzibar, 50 km off the coast of Tanzania. Located in the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar is the ultimate beach holiday island with fine sandy beaches, coconut palms and deep blue water as far as the eye can see.
On Zanzibar, you also have the opportunity to participate in one of our supplementary excursions. For example, you can experience Stone Town, the old part of Zanzibar, or take a trip to Prison Island. All the supplementary options are listed under those holidays that finish with a stay on Zanzibar.
City break in Dubai
If you love both big city ambience and the beach, you can round off your safari holiday with a visit to Dubai. The days here are yours to do with as you wish – relax on the beach or go shopping in the giant malls, for example.
You can also choose to take one of our half- or full-day excursions, such as the Desert Safari – a different type of safari from the one you have just been on. All the supplementary options are listed under those holidays that finish with a visit to Dubai.
