Welcome To Kenya
Luxury Safari In Kenya.
Kenya is possibly the best known African luxury safari destination, which has benefited from generations of media exposure through books (Hemingway, Ruark, Karen Blixen and countless others), films (Hatari, Out of Africa) and many more. And of course the abundant films and documentaries shown on television, like Discovery Channel.
The long history of tourism has indeed bred a culture that is well-used to foreign tourists, and the luxury safari camps, lodges and mobile operations are great value.
The wildlife regions of the country lie to all points of the compass from Nairobi, and the main parks are Tsavo East, or West, Amboseli and Masai Mara. There are many, many more wildlife areas consisting of conservancies and private ranches stretching from the base of Mount Kenya, to Lake Turkana, The Mathews Range and Lake Victoria. Kenya is a great luxury safari destination for families or couples.
The conservancies that are partnered with Masai and Samburu communities are incredible wildlife areas, and because they are outside the national parks, one is not restricted by the rules of the parks. This means that if necessary, one can drive off-road, do night drives and walks as well far more freely than inside the parks! A massive advantage.
The Great Migration arrives in the Masai Mara around July / August and spends some time grazing north before turning around and heading back south into Tanzania and the Serengeti. It is spectacular, and certainly the 10th Wonder of the world! For many first time travelers, seeing the sea of animals is quite emotional. Of course the coastal areas also hold great options if travelers wish to have a ‘bush & beach’ holiday!
