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.
After many centuries of close relations between Kenya and the UK, the Land of the Masai continues to draw British travellers with magnificent savannah home to large herds of wild beasts and the comfort of a shared language and culture. From the dramatic landscape of the Great Rift Valley to the vast grassy plains, the jagged mountain peaks to the pristine coastal beaches, Kenya is a land of surprising contrast and forms the quintessential image of Africa for many people.Read More
Kenya is also home, in part, to one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles - the annual Great Migration when thousands of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle make their way to greener pastures. Bringing life to these landscapes is one of Africa's best known peoples, the colourful Masai tribes that maintain ancient traditions and live in harmony with nature. Whether it's the land, the animals or the people, Kenya is bound to stir the soul.
Join us in Kenya on one of our overland camping safaris or for those looking for a more comfortable experience, consider one of our small lodge-accommodated safaris or tailor your dream safari adventure visiting Kenya's top destinations.

All 3 staff [driver, cook and guide] were great, friendly, and the food was wonderful. Tents and mattresses were of a good standard. The staff who ran the Serengeti excursion were also very professional.Some of the campsites were a little basic; with poorly maintained facilities - for example broken toilet seats and non-flushing toilets were unpleasant. But they all had a bar area for child drinks, which was good.We didn't appreciate beforehand the number of very early starts that would be required; perhaps this should be made more clear on trip notes.”
Amazing adventure through Africa, saw plenty of wildlife. Tour leader, driver and cook all worked well. Food a plenty and very good. Leah (tour leader) very knowledgable and approachable. ”
We couldn't fault anything, the tour was great with opportunities to see loads about Kenya and Tanzania - not just the parks and reserves. Our tour guide, Leah was great and very knowledgeable - and not phased out by any questions we asked!”
Recent Travel Articles on Africa
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
