Get to Know Kenya

Bucket list destinations on a safari in Kenya include the Masai Mara, Amboseli and Mount Kilimanjaro. Kenya is a balanced destination with an enormous variety and abundance of wildlife. The southern parks and reserves like the Masai Mara and Amboseli National Park are well worth seeing. So are the northern parts of Kenya’s private concessions and Samburu reserves, where you can find the Special Five – reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, Somali ostrich and beisa oryx. Kenya is a land full of romance, thrills, and adventure; nothing says “classic safari” like a Kenyan safari.

A Kenyan safari not only offers breathtaking natural beauty in one of the world’s most pristine environments, but it also allows you to get up close and personal with some of Africa’s most coveted animals. Combined with the sight of Mount Kilimanjaro, all this makes a Kenya safari experience unique. The annual great migration is best viewed from both sides of the Mara River, but you can experience the herds on the Kenyan side between August and October.

Why Kenya?

  • Kenya is the home of the safari, the ‘original safari’ destination.
  • For over a hundred years Kenya has fascinated adventurers and romantics from all over the world.
  • This is the home of Out of Africa and both Teddy Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway came here on safari.
  • In Kenya you can still find the romance of gin and tonic, evenings around a campfire and nights under canvas with the distant roar of a lion in the African night.
  • The magic of Kenya is in the sheer diversity of landscape, wildlife, human cultures and experience.
  • No other African country has such diversity within its borders.
  • Here you’ll find snow-capped peaks and rolling savannah, unspoiled beaches and tropical rain forest, herds of elephants and flocks of flamingo, nomadic tribesmen and dhow sailors.
  • Kenya also offers you a chance to see different species that can only be seen here, such as Grevy’s zebra, reticulated and Rothschild’s giraffe, gerenuk and the critically endangered hirola or ‘four eyed antelope’.

Kenya's fantastic safari areas are safe to visit, and the country's kind, welcoming people will make your journey unforgettable. A Rhino safari is no different if you are accompanied by a safari guide in a safari area. There should not be any problems.
  • The most apparent area to look for rhinos is Nairobi National Park, which is located on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya's capital. This national park is a fantastic place to visit during a safari in Kenya
  • Nairobi National Park is a national park in Kenya's south-central region, located 5 miles (8 kilometers) south of Nairobi.
  • The best time to see the wildebeest migration is in August as the herds cross the Nile crocodile-infested Mara River, crossing an international border between Kenya and Tanzania.
  • Africa is a great continent to go horse riding and the fact that many destinations in Africa that you may want to visit may not have functioning roads, so horse riding could be one of your only options to achieve seeing all there is to see.
  • Kenya has a world of variety when it comes to tented accommodation camps, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to another realm in the bush as your every desire comes try.
In some parts of Southern Africa, it is safe to drink tap water, however, it is highly recommended to stick to bottled water (mostly supplied) during your trip as even drinkable African water is completely different in taste and consistency from European, American or Asian water.  In East Africa, specifically Kenya, however, water pathogens are a huge problem. So it is advised to always stick to bottled water.
