Kenya

Why Choose Kenya?

Kenya, the original safari destination, is a vast and beautiful country. Geographically interesting and culturally diverse it is undoubtedly home to some of the best safari opportunities that Africa has to offer. It has, unfortunately, recently been the victim of negative press and people have been put off by the perception of ‘packaged’ safari by minibus through crowded parks. With Travel Africa, your Kenyan safari is tailored to your desires making each trip - whether it is a romantic honeymoon, adventurous riding safari or an epic family adventure - a truly original and exclusive experience.

Marvel at the wildebeest migration, laugh at the antics of wallowing elephants and hear the lions roar. Drink a sundowner with the silken air brushing over your skin as you listen to the night noises all around you, before falling asleep beneath the stars. This is the stuff of dreams and the foundations of memories that will last a lifetime.

Whether you choose walking wild with the Sumburu and their camels, staying in rustic tented camps, or a high-end safari staying in characterful lodges or secluded luxury camps, your safari is tailored to suit your wishes and your budget.

Where to visit

Kenya can essentailly be divided into six regions, each of which has its own very distinctive character and set of attractions. We would recommend areas such as Laikipia, in the shadow of Mt Kenya, with its magical privately owned concessions which do so much for conservation, coupled with the famed Masai Mara, Meru, Samburu or Amboseli. These highly regarded National Parks provide incredible Big 5 viewing along with top class guiding and your tourism contributes hugely to the conservation of these pristine areas, its people and the protected animals therein.

Kenya is about more than just safari however, so why not combine the best of both worlds? Enjoy a Kenyan safari followed by a relaxing time on the coast, which offers not only white sandy beaches, lapped by the clear blue Indian Ocean, but also snorkelling, diving, deep-sea fishing and adventure sports.
