Kenya

Kenya is regarded by many as the original and most authentic safari destination. Visitors flock here in the hope of seeing the ‘Big Five’ – the lion, Cape buffalo, rhino, leopard and African elephant. Whether you are looking to experience the thrill of an overland safari in big game destinations or relax on one of the endless Indian Ocean white sandy beaches, Kenya has it all.

If you time your visit right, you could get the see the “Greatest Migration on Earth” – the outstanding spectacle of over one million wildebeest plus gazelles and zebras moving their way through the Serengeti Plains in Tanzania to the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.

You’re not confined to a four wheel drive adventure either…you could experience a totally different perspective by seeing the herds from a wonderful vantage point in a hot air balloon. Or, if you love horse riding, you could consider a riding safari. There are also walking safaris, camel safaris and helicopter safaris!

The beach destinations, including Mombasa, are home to wonderful white sands and azure waters. There’s plenty to explore locally plus there are plenty of watersports on offer too – the most popular being kitesurfing, snorkelling and diving. The North coast of Mombasa has some world class dive sites including those in the Watamu Marine National Park where the shallow coral gardens are favoured by learners and snorkellers. It’s also a great place to spot the endangered Green Sea Turtle.
