KENYA SAFARIS

From the wide open plains of the magnificent Masai Mara to the towering peak of Mount Kenya, this country, perhaps more than any other, embodies the spirit of Africa.

Immortalised in film, on canvas and regularly gracing television sets across the world thanks to the Great Wildebeest Migration, the wide open spaces seen on one of our Kenya Holidays are renowned for their spectacular wildlife and fascinating tribal communities like the Maasai and Samburu people.

A safari is not all about wildlife viewing – authentic encounters with everyday life is an enlightening experience. Kenya has a culture born of countless sources.

This region has been crossed by the paths of a long and complex history. From the prehistoric records of early man to the present day, Kenya has been a land of unending change, contrasts and diversity. Kenya has drawn on all of these influences to develop its own unique culture.

Amboseli belongs in the elite of Kenya’s national parks, and it’s easy to see why. Its signature attraction is the sight of hundreds of big-tusked elephants set against the backdrop of Africa’s best views of Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m).

Africa’s highest peak broods over the southern boundary of the park, and while cloud cover can render the mountain’s massive bulk invisible for much of the day, you’ll be rewarded with stunning vistas when the weather clears, usually at dawn and/or dusk. Apart from guaranteed elephant sightings, you’ll also see wildebeest and zebras, and you’ve a reasonable chance of spotting lions and hyenas. The park is also home to over 370 bird species.

On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges.

You can also expect to see both black and white rhinos; look past the hordes of horny baboons and you’ll see hippos, or perhaps a lucky leopard or two. There are also about 50 rare tree-climbing lions in the park, spotted several times per week. The usual zebras, buffaloes and Rothschild’s giraffes seal the deal.
