Go in search of the Big 5 and meet Masai warriors with our range of camping and lodge safari tours and tailor-made safari holidays to Kenya.
Kenya boasts the most spectacular stretch of the Great Rift Valley, mighty Mt Kenya and the stunning savannah plains of the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru with its flock of pink flamingos and a pristine Indian Ocean coast. An undoubted highlight is Kenya’s premier game reserve, the Masai Mara. Earning its name from the Masai tribes people and the Mara River which divides it, the reserve is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual Great Migration of the wildebeest between August and October each year. The Masai Mara is perhaps most famous for its lions, though all the other members of the Big 5 roam the reserve too.Read More

Kenya is a fantastic safari destination at any time of year with world-famous national parks home to an incredible array of wildlife and brief wet seasons. The Masai Mara is home to the Big 5 and witnesses the Great Migration that follows a year-long cycle so there's always something of interest taking place on the savanna. Even when the rains come there's still good wildlife viewing thanks to thinner crowds and a steady animal population in other national parks.
Recommended Places to Visit in Kenya
With scenery that perfectly captures the essence of Africa and a host of national parks and wildlife reserves offering phenomenal safari opportunities as well as a glimpse of traditional tribal cultures, Kenya has plenty of places to recommend and here's a few of our favourites.
Bordering Tanzania to the south, Amboseli National Park is one of Kenya's premier safari destinations with hundreds of large-tusked elephants roaming the plains. What makes this scene even more appealing is the sight of the looming, snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain. It's also a good place to visit Masai villages and see giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and lion.
Situated in the Rift Valley of Kenya, the popular Lake Nakuru National Park is one of the best places to spot white and black rhino. The park is also famous for the large concentration of flamingo that feed on the algae found in abundance in the soda lake of Nakuru and make for a stunning image of pink against the blue waters. The light acacia forest surrounding the lake makes this a particularly scenic spot also.
The rolling grasslands, flat-topped acacia trees and healthy population of the Big 5 make Masai Mara the perfect safari destination and one of Kenya's most popular national parks. Add to this the red-robed Masai tribes that carve out a traditional rural way of life in villages dotted throughout the reserve and you have a compelling destination that will keep you coming back for more.
Stretching out beneath Mount Kenya, the dry grasslands of Samburu National Reserve are home to a staggering number and variety of species from zebra to giraffe, lion to cheetah, as well as a surprising natural beauty that ranges from palm groves to riverine forest. With an area of just 300 sq km, Samburu may be small but it certainly packs a hefty punch.
Divided into an East and West section, the Tsavo National Park is Kenya's largest wildlife reserves with the country's largest river running through it. The contrast of scenery is quite something with lush greenery and endless grasslands home to a vast number of animals including lion, cheetah, hyena and ostrich. The West section is the most visited of the two though the East section is growing increasingly popular.
