Kenya Safaris

Kenya

Kenya Safari Delights

Geographically diverse with a handful of various climates, Kenya surprises with her tropical beaches, sub-tropical and humid lake region, snow-capped mountain peaks and semi-arid deserts.  Home to the modern safari, Kenya is blessed with expansive wildlife reserves and national parks Tsavo, Amboselli, Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru to name a few. The absolute highlight of Kenya’s wildlife is the annual Wildebeest Migration in the world-famous Maasai Mara reserve where Africa’s greatest migration takes place between mid-August and late October each year. This is the best example of wild nature at its best as hundreds of thousands of wildebeests, zebras, Thomson’s gazelles and even Topi and Eland, migrate together in search of plains filled with sweet grasses.

Tropical Kenyan Nights

The palm-fringed Mombasa coastline with its distinct Arab flavour, sugary white beaches and the calm and inviting waters of the warm Indian Ocean, has an enthralling history and natural beauty.

Beautiful beach resorts invite you to lay back and luxuriate in the warm Swahili culture and hospitality while the underwater reserves such as Malindi and Watamu are begging to be explored for their tropical coral reefs radiant with colourful fish, sea cucumbers, dolphins and the endangered Olive Ridley turtles.

As Kenya lies on the Equator, it has a warm and tropical climate with temperatures varying between 20 – 28 degrees Celsius.  The dry seasons are generally from mid-June to October, and from late-December to mid-March and game-viewing is best at these times. Only a limited number of camps and lodges are open in the wettest months of November, April and May.
