Safari Enquiry

A safari in Kenya offers breathtaking natural beauty in one of the world’s most pristine environments and allows you to get up close and personal with some of Africa’s most sought-after animals.

Combined with the sight of Mount Kilimanjaro, all this makes a Kenya safari experience unique. The annual Great Wildebeest 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.

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.

Why Kenya?

  • Meet and learn about the famous Maasai culture during a safari in Kenya.
  • About 60 national parks and reserves are located in Kenya. The Masai-Mara, Amboseli, and Tsavo national parks are some of the most well-known.
  • It’s a great destination as it has a selection of rustic beaches to relax on after an exciting safari in Kenya.
  • Observing the Great Migration in Kenya is a must for every wildlife lover visiting Kenya. This is nature’s most fantastic migration, with hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle moving through East Africa.
  • The lakes of Africa’s Rift Valley connect three sizable catchments and cross numerous countries. Eight lakes, including the gorgeous birdlife-attracting Lake Naivasha, are found in Kenya. A “soda lake,” Lake Nakuru is well known for drawing sizable groups of flamingos that feed in the shallows.

  • 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.
  • 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.
