The drama of the Great Migration unfolds each year in the Masai Mara, where spotting members of the Big Five becomes second nature. Away from the well-trodden safari tracks is the remote Laikipia Plateau, where endangered species such as Grévy’s zebra and wild dog roam, and the sun-baked Samburu National Reserve, where elephant cool off in the Ewaso Ng’iro River. A holiday to Kenya also presents the opportunity to learn about local Maasai culture and spend time relaxing on the palm-fringed, white-sand beaches of the country’s long stretch of coastline.
