Its claim to have invented the safari may be contested, but Kenya has certainly mastered it. Few places rival the Masai Mara for wildlife, where exclusive conservancies allow you to escape the crowds.

And it is the Masai Mara that dazzles on any trip to Kenya, with its incredible density of predators, all set against a timeless savannah landscape. But Kenya has so much more besides this.

National parks and private conservancies dot the country, each one offering something slightly different, and typically home to a selection of beautifully rustic safari lodges. And when the safari finishes, the Kenyan Coast is the perfect place to relax beside Indian Ocean beaches.

Why Kenya

Kenya has the perfect blend of fantastic wildlife, great safari lodges and beautiful landscapes. But a safari in Kenya also comes with a sense of fun and flexibility that you don’t get elsewhere. The private conservancies aren’t constrained by the rules of the national parks, meaning you can walk, mountain bike, horse ride, fly camp and more.

When to Go

The dry season and the arrival of the Great Migration both fall between July and September, making this the perfect time to visit Kenya. However, outside of the long rains (March to April), Kenya rarely disappoints. Wildlife viewing remains fantastic throughout and the short rains cause little disruption, instead adding plenty of drama for photographers.

Masai Mara

The backdrop to so many wildlife documentaries, the Mara blends sweeping vistas with dramatic action. Big cats stalk the plains, which are roamed by countless animals.

In the shadow of Mount Kenya lies the fertile Laikipian Plateau. Here, wildlife conservancies hide a wealth of animals, including the last remaining eastern black rhinos.

The Kenyan Coast

After an action-packed safari, the Kenyan coast is the perfect place to unwind. Accessible Diani Beach is a firm favourite, with beautiful sands and watersports to keep you entertained.

Watch as the Mara’s plains flood with wildebeests and zebras. In this prey-rich environment, it is the predators that flourish, especially the famed lion prides.
