Make your tailor made holiday to Kenya really special. Take a look at some of our unique things to do whilst visiting Kenya.

Ballooning Masai Mara
Take to the skies

Hot Air Ballooning in the Masai Mara

If you fancy a real African treat then why not take a hot air balloon safari over the Masai Mara? At first light you’ll take to the African sky and soar above the Mara, spotting the animal’s morning movements. Once your balloon ride is complete you return to earth and are greeted with a delicious champagne breakfast in the middle of the bush – an experience not to be missed!

Elsemere High Tea
Fancy a brew?

Tea at Joy Adamson's house

Home to the Born Free foundation – Elsemere is where Joy Adamson famously lived when she brought up Elsa the lion cub. Nowadays it is a place to walk around, learn about the foundation, have some tea and cakes and soak up a real authentic colonial Kenyan atmosphere. Located near Lake Naivasha it is a great place to visit when in the area.

Giraffe Centre
Lofty retreat

Stay at Giraffe Manor

In one of Nairobi’s leafy suburbs sits the famous Giraffe Manor – one of the city’s most iconic buildings. Guests can spend the night here in true colonial style and enjoy breakfast with the giraffes – who will happily poke their ling necks through the windows for a peak and hopefully a taste of your breakfast! You can also learn lots about these giraffes at the AFEW Giraffe Centre across the lawn.

Gerenuk Samburu
Is it an antelope is it a giraffe?

Spot Gerenuks in Samburu

In the centre of Kenya – 350km north of Nairobi sits Samburu National Reserve. Home to all manner of different African animals including the lesser seen Grevy’s zebra, the reticulated giraffe, Kirk’s dik-dik and the famous gerenuk! Gerenuk’s necks are very long – hence their name means ‘giraffe necked’ and they browse rather than graze for food often standing on their hind legs to eat from trees!
