Africa / Kenya

Tribal lands rich in colour, culture and diversity, exclusive hillside retreats and exquisite riverside lodges overlooking waterholes which teem with game. Bounteous wildlife and bead-clad tribes people; gourmet bush dining under a canopy of trees, the silver cutlery and white linen gleaming in the moonlight. Kenya holds unforgettable sights and surprises at every turn. To the south, elephants traverse Amboseli National Park in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, a dry and dusty land dappled with swamplands to attract nature’s giants, the early light of dawn turning the snow on the peaks into an ethereal pink. Unspoilt tropical beaches stretch along a glorious coastline, with miles of coral reef that, when the tide is low enough, can be reached across the sand. Lush plantations of banana, sugarcane, coconut, sisal and cashew nut cover the verdant coastal strip, nurtured by equatorial rains. Inland lie the wondrous sights of the Great Rift Valley and the Masai Mara Game Reserve where wildebeest and zebra mass for the Great Migration. In turn, the predators gather – lion and hyena scenting their prey. The scene creates one of the greatest wildlife shows on earth. More natural wonder awaits on nearby Lake Nakuru, the giraffe, rhino, waterbuck and tree-climbing lions taking second place to the pink explosion of over a million flamingos dotting the soda lake’s surface. To the country’s north, Mount Kenya rises majestically to the only peak where snow is found on the equator, brooding above an array of scenery from vast open savannah in Samburu to the dry plains and kopjes of Shaba National Reserve. Nature in the raw, viewed best from captivating wilderness camps topped by decadent Kenyan skies assuring endless memories and authentic luxury Kenya holiday experiences.

When is the best time to visit Kenya?

January to March is hot and dry with the long rains usually falling from April to early June. Between June and October it is warm and dry during the day but cold at night. The migration usually arrives in the Mara from July with river crossings from Tanzania generally taking place between July and September. The herds rest in Kenya before crossing back to Tanzania in October/November. Kenya’s coast enjoys a tropical climate – April to June can be humid, tempered by monsoon winds. Nairobi is pleasant year round due to its altitude.
