Kenya Safari

Our Kenya safari expertise

Both Chris and Ben have an infectious enthusiasm for Kenya and have spent a huge amount of time visiting lodges, safari camps and meeting guides searching for the best Kenya safari. Some cater to children some for bird lovers and others for culture and adventure. Whatever specific criteria you might require, Chris and Ben will be able to advise you on the best places to go and design the perfect Kenya Safari for you.

Why we like Kenya

The obvious reason is the eye-watering combination of some of Africa’s best wildlife viewing and famous parks such as the Masai Mara and the endless white sands of the Swahili coast make Kenya a perfect destination for honeymooners and special occasions. But for us it is the great guides, the colourful characters of Kenya that are such an integral part of a successful safari holiday.

What to expect on your Kenya safari

Most of the small, privately owned lodges which we use offer outstanding levels of service, delicious food and excellent wine. Even the tented camps will have flushing toilets, hot showers and huge comfortable double beds. Distances are quite large and roads can be rough so flying between camps is the most practical method of getting around. Little 12 seater planes provide a scheduled service over most of the country although private charter tends to be even more convenient. Don’t be put off by stories of overcrowding in the Masai Mara. There is of course some truth to them, but the sheer size of the park means that with the right knowledge it is perfectly possible to spend your time in private concessions where the minibuses are not allowed to go.

Some ideas for Kenya holidays

  • Watch the wildebeest as they flounder across the Mara River during the great migration. Crocodiles waiting to pick off the stragglers.
  • Take an early morning balloon ride over the Masai Mara.
  • Go walking for a few days in the north, camels carrying your baggage.
  • Kenya is a fantastic holiday for children of all ages and many of the camps have separate children’s programmes.
  • End with a few days on the beach either in a small hotel or rent a private, fully staffed villa.

Beyond the ordinary

A helicopter safari of Kenya is an unbeatable experience.
