A Kenya safari holiday is all you could wish for and more than you ever imagined.

The magnificence of Kenya’s national parks is second to none, as is the diversity of experiences on offer. A visit to Kenya will be sure to leave you wanting more, whether it’s your first safari, or you’re an old hand.

As a safari destination, Kenya has everything. From forested mountain slopes to endless swathes of beach, golden-grassed savannah to oases alive with birdsong. Every corner of the country invites you to fall under the spell of its terrain.

Where to go on your Kenya safari holiday?

Kenya’s most famous national park is the Masai Mara, and with good reason. The volume of wildlife found here is unrivalled anywhere in Africa, with the exception of the Serengeti, in neighbouring Tanzania. The main reserve is complemented by adjoining private conservancies, which allow for the same epic experience, but in a more private setting.

Kenya is also home to many equally magnificent, but less well-known safari destinations. Your tailor-made tour highlights could include Lewa and Laikipia in the north, famed for industry-leading conservation successes. We’re also big fans of the scenic Rift Valley Lakes, and the remote wilds of Samburu.

Following an adventure in the wild, stunning stretches of coastline and a world of aquatic exploration await. It’s all here, encompassed in one country. Truly, a one-stop shop for one of the greatest safari tours imaginable.

What to see on a Kenya Family Safari?

Welcome to world-class game viewing. Kenya is home to the Great Migration: over two million wildebeest and zebra make their way from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara, and back, each year. A Kenya safari holiday will also include the chance to spy the Big Five, as well as countless other animals and birds.

With such topographic diversity, each region has its own unique ecosystem and creatures. For wildlife fans, we recommend including two different safari areas, where possible, to experience the unique diversity of Kenya.

Kenya has something for everyone, which is why it’s amongst the best destinations for a luxury family safari.

Where to stay on Kenya safari tours?

Kenya has a bounty of accommodation options, designed to suit every taste. Creative camps and lodges draw on the elements around them, offering a diversity not found anywhere else. Breakfast with giraffes in an old Manor House, stay ‘on top of the world‘ overlooking the Masai Mara, or travel back in time to the birth of safari, with some 1920s hospitality.

What to do?

Immersive experiences will be amongst your tour highlights, and connect your safari to the pulse of the place. Take in quality time with indigenous tribespeople or give yourself over to experiences of the wild in ways you never imagined. Explore on foot, on horseback, aboard a camel, a helicopter, or a hot-air balloon. Then, complete the adventure by snorkelling and SCUBA diving along the coastline’s colourful reefs.
