As Kenya is one of the best African safari destinations, it can be hard to choose from its many options. The best Kenya safaris are all about connecting the best lodges, experiences and safari areas in the best itineraries, and matching them with your desired travel period to create the safari experience that suits you best.
Kenya has deep safari roots. Accommodation options in Kenya’s best safari lodges abound, from mobile camps to private villas in locations varying from out on the savannah to within earshot of Indian Ocean waves.
The best Kenya safari experiences include the spectacular Great Wildebeest Migration – but that’s not all. From our curated selection of lodges, you can enjoy encounters and excursions that reflect the diversity of its landscapes, cultures and wildlife. From hot-air balloon rides over the Mara plains to watching elephant beneath Kilimanjaro or camel trekking in Samburu, we can make it all happen.
Kenya is a land of contrasts, and we can combine them to maximum effect in the best Kenya safari itineraries. Think an exciting adventure in the remote Northern Kenya juxtaposed with a relaxing adjourn in the lush Masai Mara, or an escape to the coast. You could even combine Kenya with another safari destination altogether, such as Uganda or Tanzania.
Naturally, you’ll want your trip to include the best Kenya safari parks and reserves; the best Kenya safaris don’t just include the hot favourites, but stay a step ahead of the herds and include adjacent conservancies, such as Mara North, and the more exclusive private reserves, such as those found in the wild north.
When to go is as important a question as where, and in Kenya this can be influenced by the climate as well as by seasonal events such as the appearance of the migrating herds. Like much of East Africa, Kenya experiences two rainy and two dry seasons annually. Click on the links below to learn more, and to discover the best of Kenya.
