KENYA

Introduction: Kenya offers incredible scenery, with (no lie!) some of the best game viewing in the world! Walking, game viewing and horse riding safaris are all available for those who wish to try something a little more adventurous, as well as ballooning, mountain climbing, camel safaris, and cultural interaction. When you are done with all that, pick up a margarita and wind down on the white sands of the Indian Ocean.

It is true that many of the country’s larger parks, including the Masai Mara, Nakuru and Amboseli, have become highly populated with tourists, but this does not mean there are not still untouched wild areas that offer intimate safari experiences. Head up North to the quiet, distant Laikipia area and beyond and you will find the privacy and exclusivity you desire.

Kenya is the perfect destination if you are looking to mix a bush and beach holiday or if you are travelling with your family.

When to travel: Kenya’s dry seasons run from mid-June to October and late-December to the end of March. Heavy rains normally dominate the country through April and May and a large number of camps and lodges close at this time. Game viewing is best just after the rains, when the sky is clear and the air fresh, from June/July and over Christmas/New Year. However it does rain sporadically throughout the year so be prepared to get your shoes muddied!

If it’s the migration you are after try to book your trip anytime from mid-July to the end of October. This allows you the highest chance to see the action. But also be aware that this is high season in Kenya – that means a lot of people and high prices!

Climate:Temperatures vary greatly with altitude. In Kenya’s Laikipia district be prepared for highs of 30C in the day and single figures at night. The Masai Mara, Amboseli, Tsavo and parks in the North don’t often drop into low single figures at night.

On the coast, its hot hot hot all year round. Daytime temperatures can range between 30C – 40C. From October – April winds blow gently from the North-East and this normally brings the best conditions. From April to September the Kuzi (monsoon winds) from the South East mean choppy waters and scattered rain.



Pricing: A typical bush & beach safari holiday in Kenya ranges from around US$5000 – US$7000 per person for a week if most of that week is spent on safari. If you are looking at spending longer or staying in higher end lodges and hotels you can easily move past US$7000.

African safaris are quite pricey, however we do our best to match price for product at every turn so you get the best bang for your buck. We firmly believe that the quality of your experience in Africa will far surpass the financial burdens and frustrations you might encounter along the way.
