Luxury Holidays to Kenya

Overview

Known as the birthplace of safari, Kenya is a stunning destination for any holiday. Sweeping grasslands filled with herds of wildlife, snow-capped mountains presiding over desert landscapes, a tribal culture, and white-sand beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean; a luxury holiday to Kenya is the African adventure you’ve always dreamed about.

Kenya’s geography has resulted in a diverse range of habitats, rich in wildlife from big cats to bird species. The Great Rift Valley slices through the heart of the country, dotted with volcanoes and lakes, and blanketed by forest. Africa’s second-largest mountain, Mount Kenya, dominates the horizon, while the Laikipia plateau stretches between them, home to abundant wildlife from the Kenyan animal kingdom, colourful tribespeople and family-friendly activities.

This is the home of the Maasai Mara, where vast savannahs are filled with wildebeest and zebra during the Great Migration. The country is also home to rare black rhino, the last two white rhinos in the world, the red-dusted elephants of Tsavo National Park, and masses of flamingos congregating on the lakes of the Great Rift Valley.

With 300 miles of palm-fringed coastline, where the azure waters of the Indian Ocean meet golden beaches, you can even spend your days swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, kite surfing, sailing on a dhow and gazing at stunning sunsets.

Tour ideas

We offer a diverse selection of tours for your Kenya holiday. Experience our Great Migration itinerary to encounter one of the greatest wonders of the world; over two million zebras, wildebeests and a myriad of other herbivores take a trip across the southern Serengeti to the luscious grassy landscapes of the Masai Mara.

Head out to the northern Mara Conservancy, showcasing the conservation efforts within the Masai Mara National Reserve, and participate in a tremendous Kenya safari with your guide. Take a night time nature drive to spot nocturnal animals and meet the locals to gain an understanding of the lives and culture of Kenyan tribespeople.

During your time at the world heritage site, unwind with a relaxing spa treatment after a long day of witnessing the iconic African wildlife in their natural environment.

Things to do

A Kenya holiday is perfect for you if you want to combine your safari adventure with beach time. Examine the colorful underwater ocean life whilst diving or snorkelling in the country’s coastal regions. Here, you’ll find the remarkable Kenyan coral reef, making for a truly picturesque experience.

Take a day trip to Amboseli National Park where you’ll find one of the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro on a clear day. Feed the giraffes at Giraffe Manor, sample the country’s delicious restaurants and enjoy a night or two at a plush boutique hotel.

Places to visit

It’s worth making time to visit Kenya’s intriguing capital, Nairobi. Just a short drive out of the business district is the Nairobi National Park. Discover the uncanny view of Kenya’s wildlife prowling the open plains in front of a backdrop of skyscrapers and city life. Continue your exploration of the city by indulging in the rich history of one of Kenya’s most famous visitors at the Karen Blixen Museum.

If you crave more wildlife, then venture out to the famous Lake Nakuru, known for the thousands of stunningly pink flamingos that nest along its shores. Oftentimes there are so many flamingos wading through the shallow waters that it’s hard to see the lake itself.

All of our tours come with expert guides and you’ll find an extensive range of specially selected accommodation that’s fit for all. Enquire today to find out more about our Kenya holidays.
