Kenya Holiday Packages

Kenya is the country which almost invented the safari holiday, as it was one of the first to embrace this extraordinary and exciting experience, showing the wonders of the wild.

It was also the first to introduce the concept of the Big Five – elephant, lion, rhinoceros, buffalo and leopard – because it is possible to see them all here. A vast land which stretches from the Indian Ocean across the low plains to Lake Victoria on the border with Uganda, and to the central highlands which are bisected by the Great Rift Valley, right through to Mount Kenya, the country’s highest point.

It is a land of explorers, farmers, adventurers and more than 70 indigenous tribal groups, while offering the most magnificent national parks and nature reserves on the continent. There is the Amboseli National Park at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro or the Masai Mara at the northern end of the Serengeti, which is part of the whole migration experience where hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra and antelope follow the rains. Then there is the desert-like Samburu Reserve and the Rift Valley Lakes – both freshwater and salt and famed for their profusion of birdlife, hippos and crocodiles – and not to mention the beaches of the seductive Indian Ocean resorts.
