Our Kenya expertise
Steppes Travel Kenya safaris and holidays are designed by our Kenya travel experts who have travelled extensively in East Africa. Our specialists, Chris and Ben, have a wealth of experience and a great passion for this beautiful and hugely diverse country. Kenya can rightly lay claim to the moniker of being the “Home of the Safari” where the exceptionally high quality of accommodation and superb guiding has been gradually fine tuned since the turn of the 19th Century. 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 this a perfect destination for honeymooners and special occasions.
Accommodation in Kenya
The huge range of quality accommodation - and sometimes private family camps - on offer means that Kenya is also perfect for family holidays. Family friendly camps and activities for safari addicts of all ages, from walking safaris, mobile bush camps, game drives, horse or camel safaris! There is also the chance to join members from the Maasai community to learn a little about their colourful culture.
Our Kenya favourites
A Kenya safari however, can often be dismissed as being too busy and certain areas in the Mara where you find the large lodges can get crowded at certain times, but the Mara is just one of over 50 national parks and far from the largest. You can watch elephants roam on the plains in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro at Amboseli, the pioneering private wildlife reserves in Laikipia (home to more endangered animals than anywhere in East Africa, but virtually no tourists), the largest park in Kenya at Tsavo, which many feel has the most dramatic natural landscape in the country.
Some of the most spectacular wildlife viewing on the planet can be found on the open plains of the famous Masai Mara which is at its most spectacular in July and August when the annual migration is in full flow. There are some excellent small, luxury tented lodges that combine the warmth and atmosphere of a home, with the style and service of any of the world’s best hotels and are the perfect base from which to witness the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle.
There is then no better antidote to the dusty safaris than finding a secluded spot along the 536 kilometres of spectacular tropical coastline, dotted with remote, beautiful islands and beach retreats that offer all kinds of water-based activities, from world class snorkelling and scuba diving to water skiing and kite surfing - or pure, undisturbed relaxation.
