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.

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.

What an awesome holiday, the crew (Godfrey, Duncan & Alouis) were 5 star, incredibly professional, caring and very entertaining. There was no doubt the group were in very capable hands throughout. I think they deserve a raise. Highly recommend this crew & tour company. Best wishes guys. Walburg Ireland”

Loved it! Our crew was fantastic...Leah, our Lead kept us organized and on schedule with good humour; our cook Reuben kept us well fed with tasty, satisfying meals prepared with great care and pride; Isa, our driver expertly manoeuvred the overland vehicle over all kinds of terrain ensuring we arrived at our destinations safely. They were warm, welcoming and gracious hosts who did everything they could to ensure we enjoyed our trip.

Being there during the migration meant that we got to see the "Big 5"! Our game driver, William was wonderful and his experience was invaluable.

The safari camps were great. Most had shower and toilet facilities, free wifi and a place to get a beverage after setting up camp.

The optional sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Maasai Mara followed by a champagne breakfast was worth every penny.

There were a lot of early mornings and long days but all worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

My only suggestion to enhance this package would be to offer optional upgraded accommodations for pre and post safari nights.

Many thanks to travel consultant Sam at OTG for his assistance in arranging this memorable vacation!”

I just wanted to write and say that Leah was an absolutely amazing Tour Guide. It seems she was born for this job - she is approachable, friendly, knowledgeable and has a laugh with the guests. The first day of our trip our truck broke down - she handled this with a cool head and had a solution in place almost immediately. Her approach to every aspect of the tour - timings, long days, the history and culture of both Kenya and Tanzania, was without fault. She is an extremely valuable asset to your organisation and I am grateful to have shared my African safari with her. ”

A Year-Round Destination
Safari opportunities abound

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.
