Kenya safaris & vacations

Witness the Great Migration in the Masai Mara, enjoy a family safari or relax on honeymoon on a tailor-made tour

Open grasslands dotted with wildebeest and antelope, acacia trees providing shady retreats for leopard, and vast salt lakes speckled pink by wading flamingoes: Kenya is everything you’d imagine a safari destination to be. Our specialists have explored each of the country’s parks and reserves, and they can use their first-hand knowledge to help plan your ideal trip.

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 vacation 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.

Visiting Kenya in green season

Kenya’s green seasons take place during the ‘short rains’ in November, and either side of the ‘long rains’ that fall in April and May. In these months, you’ll see the bush at its most verdant and have the wildlife largely to yourself during a more cost-effective time to visit the country.
