From the snow-capped peaks of Mt Kilimanjaro to orange-hued sunsets splashed across the savannah of the Masai Mara, Kenya is a country that’s simply begging to be explored. With lush tropical rainforests, palm-fringed coastlines and harsh desert terrain, Kenya’s contrasting landscapes aren’t the only sights that will leave you inspired. Epicentre of some of the world’s most endangered species like the black rhinos and Grévy’s zebra, Kenya is the quintessential stomping ground of any African safari holiday.
Our Kenya safari itineraries offer a great mix of stunning national parks, brilliant game-viewing locations, bush camping and tropical beaches that gives you a perfectly rounded African experience. Enjoy exhilarating game drives in Lake Nakuru National Park and visits to the Ngorongoro Crater, ending your trip on the white sands of Zanzibar with our Kenya and Tanzania wildlife holiday.
If you’re looking to picnic on the plains, our Kenya and Tanzania Adventure offers an unparalleled experience, where you will encounter elephants, wildebeest, giraffes and leopards. From the Amboseli National Park to glistening views of Lake Manyara, you’ll soon find our Kenya safari holidays offer the ultimate African safari experience.
Masai Mara safaris: Undoubedly one of the best locations for an African safari holiday, the Masai Mars National Reserve is home to Maasai communities whose rituals and ancient traditions remain an integral part of their everyday life. Once fearful warriors, their life is now dominated by the need to tend and protect their cattle: proud Maasai men in bright-red cloaks carry long spears to lead their herds across the vast grasslands in search of water and pastures. And then there are the animals…
Lake Nakuru safaris: A large soda lake carpeted with thousands of pink flamingo, Lake Nakuru is an awe-inspiring sight made even more spectacular when the birds take flight, forming a great pink cloud above the shimmering water. A Kenya safari tour to Lake Nakuru National Park will live long in the memory. An important sanctuary for the black and white rhino – often be seen at rest near the lake shore and under acacia trees – Nakuru is also likely to offer up sightings of huge herds of zebra and buffalo, prides of lions and wandering giraffes, and possibly a lone leopard…
The Sacred Realm of Mount Kenya: Africa’s second highest peak, Mount Kenya is regarded as the sacred realm of Ngai, the god of the local Kikuyu people, and known as the ‘place of light’. It’s an inspiring sight best viewed at dawn when illuminated by the sun’s early rays. Kenya safari holidays don’t have to just be about wildlife. Trekking fans will be drawn to the challenging granite cliffs and volcanic rock of Mount Kenya’s snow-capped peak.
Life on the Great Rift Valley: Step out onto the Rift Valley’s open plains and you’ll feel a million times smaller than you ever have before. Drive by a pride of lions in a 4WD safari vehicle, watch a herd of elephants from the back of a horse, or spot some of the 400 species of bird-life around the sparkling lakes of Navaisha and Nakuru.
This trip exceeded expectations in terms of the variety of wildlife spotted and the competences of the group leader.
A really excellent tour. I don’t think I can find fault with anything. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The locations visited were incredible and we saw an amazing amount of wildlife with the help of our guide. The accommodation was good and the transport between locations was very good.
Another amazing tiger trip – this was my 6th tiger trip with Exodus (5th with Paul) – and they just keep getting better and better. We had some quality sightings and some unusual behaviours seen – like a mock-charge and a territorial battle between 2 males – which I had not seen before. The 2 full days in the Park were great and a plus, though it was hot (and we did have a big thunderstorm too – unusual for this time of year!). I love Bandhavgarh, the Lodge is lovely and I also enjoy meeting up with the people I now know as friends there.
