Fabulous Kenya Holidays

If you are on safari in Kenya you know that you are tapping into an incredibly long tradition of excitement, wonder and fun. Kenya is quite simply a fabulous safari destination! People from the UK have been going there for generations to see the incredible density and diversity of wild animals and birds. And we almost feel that we are familiar with it because of movies like Out of Africa and The Lion King and by documentaries like Big Cat Diaries.

But seeing it on screen is nothing like the real deal, which involves having your every need catered for, being taken to incredibly beautiful places and shown sites that you will never forget.

Some of the possible highlights of a Kenyan holiday could be

  • a hot air baloon safari in the Maasai Mara
  • a horse riding safari in the Maasai Mara
  • watching the wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara
  • A safari in the magnificent Tsavo National Park
  • A Safari in the remote Laikipia Plateau or Samburu National Park
  • a beach holiday on the Indian ocean coast

You can find more detail further down this page or on any of our detailed kenya pages.

With a huge choice of different eco-systems, landscapes and styles of holiday, we can put together for you a truly unique and fabulous experience. With access to all the best tours, lodges and operators, at the best prices, we work with only those whose service we know to be outstanding and whose committment to conservation and community development is equally good. We can do flexible bookings and all our bookings are ABTA and ATOL protected.

Fabulous Options for Your Kenya Holiday

Nairobi is the hub for Kenya, with direct flights from Heathrow. It's a great city to spend a couple of nights, with lots of interesting things to do, but the focus of your Kenyan holiday will be a safari, and for that there are lots of options:

Southern Parks

There are several parks in the southern part of the country, quite close to Nairobi:

  • Maasai Mara
  • Amboseli
  • Tsavo
  • Lake Nakuru & Lake Naivasha

Central and Northern Parks

Further north, in the central, westerm and northern parts of the country there are others, less well known, but equally exciting.

  • Meru
  • Samburu and Shaba
  • The Laikipia Plateau


The best of the beaches are at

  • Diani 
  • Turtle Bay.

In planning your fabulous Kenya holiday you are truly spoilt for choice! That is where we come in. With access to all the parks, conservanices, lodges, and tour operators we are not connected to any of them. With an understanding of what you want, we will put together a tailor-made holiday, using the providers who we know give the best holiday experience and operate in a way that is responsible towards the environment and the local communities. We will get you the best prices, and flexible bookings, all secured by ABTA and ATOL. We can't have the pleasure of traveling in Kenya all the time, but we can have the pleasure of knowing you are having a great time there!

Contact us today and let's start the planning!

Maasai Mara

Probably the best known reserve in Kenya is the Maasai Mara National Park, which is accross the border from the Serengeti in Tanzania, and is effectively an extension of the same eco-system. The annual 'Great Migration' of Wildebeest and other grazing animals moves between the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara and this incredible spectacle can be just as well viewed from the Maasai Mara.

But this annual event is by no means all that this wonderful park has to offer. It is particularly well known for magnificent prides of lion and the density of game overall. There are lots of great options for staying both inside the national park and on adjoining conservanices and exciting options such as hot air baloon safaris and horseback safaris.

Also in the far south, and just accross the border from Mount Kilimanjaro, enjoying wonderful views of the mountain, is Amboseli. Known for its spectacularly beautiful scenery accross five different habitat types, and for its elephants, lion and cheetah, Amboseli National Park is combined with six community owned ranches into a 1150 square mile conservation area teeming with all types of game.

This area is particularly good for birding, with 47 different species of raptor, alone, listed here!

To include Amboseli in your fabulous Kenya Safari, contact us!


Also in the south is the giant Tsavo National Park, divided into East and West by the road and railway from Nairobi to Mombasa. This huge park (8500 square miles) has a huge diversity of landscapes and habitats. It is a fantastic place for birding, and a great place for bush walks. Although it has a lower density of game than some of the other parks, it also has a far lower density of visitors, so it offers a great experience of the African bush at its wildest.

Enquire now about including Tsavo in your Kenya safari!

Lake Nakuru & Lake Naivasha

Situated west of Nairobi, these two lakes each provide important habitats, especially for birds. Lake Nakuru is particularly known for its flamingoes. It is an important sanctuary also for Rhinos and endangered Rothschild's giraffes. Lake Naivasha, has a particularly rich growth of fever trees around it and its bird life is absolutely extraordinary.

Planning for your fabulous safari to Naivasha is just one click away!


Much further north, to the north of Mount Kenya, is the Meru National Park. In the unlikely event that you are old enough to remember Joy Adamson's books about Elsa, the lioness, starting with Born Free, or the film made about it, this is the setting for that story. Like Tsavo, both game and tourists are less dense here than in many parks, so if you are interested in unusual animals such as gerinuk, Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe or Besia Oryx, or in birds, and you prefer to be far from the madding crowd, and perhaps on foot, this is a great choice for you.

To talk to us about visiting Meru National park, enquire now!

Samburu and Shaba

Still further north, and in a landscape that is generally flat and parched, these reserves are in floodplains that host an extraordinary level of biodiversity with more than 50 species of mamal and 450 species of bird. Seldom visited, and more difficult to get to, these areas really reward those who are looking for a safari experience that is well and truly out of the ordinary.

If Samburu or Shaba sound great to you, contact us to talk abou including one or both of them in your safari!

The Laikipia Plateau

Straddeling the equator in the west of the country is the Laikipia Plateau, on which there are seven large conservancies, run mostly by or on behalf of community groups, and with somewhat different emphases in terms of what special experiences they provide. What they have in common is magnificent scenery and incredible biodiversity. They are  covered with open grasslands, basalt hills, lonely kopjes and dense cedar forests, fed by the Ewaso Nyiro and Ewaso Narok rivers. This area has more endangered species than any equivalent area in Africa. If you are inclined to sleep on a specially constructed bed under the stars, go for a camel trek into the wilderness, or track elephants on foot, then this could well be the place for you. You are also likely to see lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dogs, as well as birds - lots and lots of birds!

Contact us today if you would like to go to the Laikipia Plateau!

Diani Beach

There are great beaches all along Kenya's lengthy coastline, but some of the best are south of Mombasa, and particularly at Diani Beach. Here there is a wide range of places to stay that offer all the benefits of an Indian Ocean beach holiday - soft sand, warm water, snorkelling, diving and wind surfing.

To talk about finishing your safari off with a fabulous beach break at Diani, contact us!

Turtle Bay

Between Mombasa and Malindi is Watamu marine reserve, and part of that is Turtle Bay. With classic white beaches and all the usual Indian Ocean sea side activities, this is also an excellent option for a Kenyan beach holiday.
