Kenya Safaris

There is no doubt that Kenya is a magical country. From arid deserts to verdant rainforest, from rolling grasslands to snow-capped equatorial peaks, from lush green hills and cultivated plains to the individual lakes and spectacular escarpments of the Great Rift Valley, this diverse nation has a variety of scenery and habitats unrivalled in Africa. Game in the reserves is abundant; both it and the birdlife – a staggering thousand species, more than any other African area of similar size – are spectacular, approachable and easily photographed. Add to this a good network of roads, excellent accommodation and cuisine as good as anywhere in Africa, and you can see why naturalists return to Kenya time and time again. Indeed, it is where the concept of the safari began – the word ‘safari’ meaning ‘a journey’ in Swahili!
