Kenya Safaris & Holidays

Kenya is the Africa you have always imagined; seas of savannah grasslands holding incredible populations of wildlife and inhabited by proud traditional people. This is a country of truly VIVID experiences.

The National Parks in Kenya are simply delightful. From Tsavo National Park to the Maasai Mara; all jam-packed with wildlife such as herds of elephants below Kilimanjaro, masses of pink flamingos feeding in shallow lakes and the big cats on the hunt during the great migration.  Head out on a safari game drive and experience world class wildlife first hand. 

The cultures in Kenya are varied and include the Maasai, Samburu and Kikuyu tribes. These people today strive to maintain their traditions in an ever-evolving world and fight daily for their survival in a realm where there is a constant battle between those who stay and those who wander.

To splash some history into a trip to Kenya, visit the 16th century Fort Jesus near the Old Town in Mombasa. This UNESCO World Heritage centre was originally built to protect the port of Mombasa and provides a wealth of insight into the battles once fought.
