Kenya safari holidays

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 safari in 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 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.
