Kenya has been blessed with some of Africa’s most scenically beautiful and wildlife rich game reserves. Classic safari images come to mind when thinking of this wildlife paradise. Never ending rolling plains, dotted with Acacia trees, the snow capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya and lakes jam packed with pink flamingo are just some of the images that get the imagination and emotion flowing as you start to plan your once in a lifetime Kenya safari.
It is a land of endless possibilities where every safari dream can come true. A destination that never falls short of your expectations, no matter how many times you visit. On a Kenya safari, you will travel in the footsteps of the great explorers such as David Livingstone and writers like Ernest Hemingway who roamed the plains many years ago, in search of inspiration, romance and adventure. Of course there are differences between a modern day safari and those of yesteryear – the main being that the focus is now on conservation, not hunting! Kenya continues to capture the world’s imagination and is where most of the world’s wildlife documentaries are filmed, including many of the BBC Wildlife series.
Kenya is renowned for its spectacular and varied scenery and during your luxury Kenya safari you will see stunning mountain ranges, vast open plains, the Great East Africa Rift Valley Lakes and harsh desert environments as you make the journey between your luxury safari camps. You will receive a warm, friendly welcome at these luxury camps where nothing is too much trouble for the staff that run them. From the housekeeping staff, to the chefs, guides and cap managers – everyone is committed to ensuring your Kenya safari will never be forgotten.
Although Kenya is a good year round safari destination, the best time to visit is during the months of June, July and August when the Great Migration of Wildebeest and Thomson’s Gazelle takes place.
The best way to plan your Kenya safari is with the help of an experienced and reputable tour operator. Financially, it works out at the same cost as it would if you were to make all the reservations yourself. Planning an African safari can be logistically quite tricky – a good tour operator will plan your safari down to the finest detail, ensuring it works with the precision of a Swiss clock.
