Wildlife holidays in Kenya

Tell me about Kenya …

Kenya is a magical country. With a functional veneer of westernisation, it is bustling and colourful, and packed with variety – a melting pot of everything African.

Despite pressure from tourism and a growing population this country remains the naturalist’s first choice in Africa ... and perhaps the world.

Kenya has a variety of scenery and habitats unrivalled even in Africa: arid deserts, verdant rainforests, rolling grasslands, snow-capped equatorial peaks, lush green hills, cultivated plains, plus the lakes and spectacular escarpments of the Great Rift Valley.

The country is serviced by a good network of roads as well as by standards of accommodation and cuisine as high as any in Africa.

Our Kenya specialist recommends...

Our ‘Kenya’s Masai Mara’ bargain mammals tour is a great way to see beautiful Lake Naivasha and its beautiful surroundings, the astonishing scenery of the Great Rift Valley and the vast numbers of game in the Masai Mara NP.

Kenya's Masai Mara

Thanks for a great holiday, the accommodation far exceeded our expectations, as did the food. Our game trips were spectacular and the guides extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Special mention to Zachary who obviously takes great personal pride in ensuring his charges get the most from his country and its wildlife. We are busy narrowing down the potential short-list for our next Naturetrek trip. Thanks again!
