Things to Do

A compelling destination for the first-time safari-goer, Kenya has gained a reputation for providing visitors with a wealth of rewarding experiences. Here you can witness the majestic Great Migration, support community development through the Me to We program, and even combine game parks with snorkeling in the inviting waters of the Indian Ocean along Kenya’s coastline.

For an alternative wildlife viewing opportunity, take to the air for a hot air balloon flight over the Masai Mara, or pick up the pace on a quad bike in lesser-known Laikipia Plateau.
