Kenya Tour Holidays

Experience the unique romance of Kenya, a land of sun-baked plains, lush rainforests and expansive grasslands, a land immortalised in the films Out of Africa and Born Free. Head out on a thrilling safari in the world-famous Masai Mara Game Reserve, tracking the ‘big five’- lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo – and come face-to-face with these magnificent animals in their natural habitat, relax in the stylish colonial atmosphere of Aberdare National Park and Treetops Lodge and marvel at the colourful spectacle of the thousands of powder-pink flamingos of Lake Nakuru. The Great Rift Valley offers more opportunities for spotting wildlife including zebras, giraffes, antelopes and hippopotamuses. It’s no wonder that Kenya is regarded by many as the best safari destination in the world.

Aberdare National Park 

Given the vast array of wildlife to be found in Kenya, it should be little surprise it is often referred to as the best safari destination in the world, so in coming here you'll be able to glimpse creatures that you have previously only ever seen on nature documentaries. 

Visit the Aberdare National Park and you can be certain of seeing some captivating creatures. Buffalos, black rhinos and baboons all call the park home, as do hundreds of species of birds, including the golden-winged sunbird. 

Elephants are typically found around waterholes and salt licks, and these majestic creatures are often an intimidating presence for other creatures who are looking to get a drink. 

Situated in Kenya's central highlands, the park encompasses a wide variety of landscapes - ranging from bamboo forests to towering mountain peaks - so a trip here is the perfect chance to capture dramatic natural scenery on your camera. 

Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha 

Even more fantastic wildlife can be seen at Lake Nakuru National Park. Regarded as something of an ornithologist's paradise, every year thousands of flamingos come here to feed on the algae that live in the body of water. However, by going on a big game drive you can also spot black and white rhinos, lions and leopards. 

Lake Naivasha National Park, meanwhile, contains a similarly diverse array of wildlife. Keen birdwatchers will be in their element here as more than 400 species - including woodpeckers, cuckoos and hawks - have been seen flying in the vicinity. However, there are also plenty of land-based mammals to keep an eye out for, among them hippos and colobus monkeys. 

From here, you can visit Crescent Island - a private game sanctuary situated in a partially-submerged volcanic crater - where herds of zebras and gazelles roam, before spending the night in a comfortable lodge. 

Maasai Mara National Reserve 

While the above reserves make for splendid safari trips, they perhaps pale in comparison to the iconic Maasai Mara National Reserve - or the Mara as it is referred to by the locals. 

The famous wildlife migration take place between August to October and sees millions of wildebeest, zebras and other creatures cross over the Mara River in the search for fresh grazing pastures. 

Here, you'll find all of Africa's 'big five' creatures - lion, black rhino, elephant, buffalo and leopard - as well as other animals such as crocodiles and baboons, so in any direction that you look on this classic Kenya Safari, you're bound to see something exciting. 

Nairobi 

However, there is much more to Kenya holidays than just amazing safari excursions. You can travel to Nairobi - the country's capital - and visit attractions such as Uhuru Gardens and the Nairobi National Museum, before relaxing in your luxury hotel. 

You may even get the chance to meet members of the Masai tribe during your trip, who are perhaps best known for their brightly-coloured outfits and traditional jumping dance.
