Kenya is a country which lies in East Africa with coastline on the Indian Ocean. The diversity of wildlife is simply astounding, from the big five to the small five, National parks, Reserves, culture, traditions and other wildlife protected areas which hosts some of the endangered species. The tourism industry has taken great advantage of this, making it a multi-million dollar economic sector.

Discover Kenya's Coastal Beaches

A visit to Kenya is incomplete before visiting the Beautiful Beaches steeped in Swahili, Arabic culture in Mombasa, Malindi, Diani and Lamu. Stay in a wide selection of Beach Front accommodation and take long beach walks in the evenings. Try some seafood and delicious Swahili food wafts of Nyama Choma *(grilled meats)*accompanied by traditional Taarab music before retreating to enjoy the powdery sands, snorkel or simply relax with a sundowner.

Parks & Wildlife

Kenya is undoubtedly renowned for its Wildlife encounters. Having been blessed with some of the finest National Parks & Reserves in East Africa i.e. The famous Masai Mara National Reserve, Amboseli National Park, Tsavo East & West National Park, Samburu National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park, Nairobi National Park (The only National Park that exists within a capital city in the whole world among others, which offers some of the best and most accessible game viewing in the world, including the hard-to-resist attraction of the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino). These, together with many other animals that are unique to Africa, can be seen at the national parks and game reserves throughout Kenya.

People & Culture

Kenya is renowned for its diverse culture and heritage, due to the numerous ethnic tribes that exist. English & Swahili are the widely spoken language throughout, however Swahili which is the national language unites all Kenyans and no matter which tribe one is from, we can communicate with each other through a common language.
The unique culture of some of the ethnic groups, especially the Maasai, is a great experience to be enjoyed whenever you visit Kenya.

Accommodation (Safari Lodges)

Choosing a place to stay when embarking on an African safari is almost as important as the destination, but your accommodation further enhances your experience. Accommodation varies from lavish 5 star safari lodges, beach hideaways, boutique tented camps & hotels, camping, budget accommodation.

Best Time to Visit Kenya

If you're hoping to go on safari, the best time to visit Kenya is from June to October, the country's dry season. This is the most exciting time of the year to visit Masai Mara as the herds of the Great Migration arrive in July and graze the plains of the Kenya Masai Mara until October. Linked to annual rainfall patterns and the growth of new grass, this remarkable migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra is a constant movement of huge, nomadic herds and other species of animals that often tag along, speckled across the reserve, predators such as the cats are ready awaiting their next meal.
