"Here I am, where I belong"~ Karen Blixen, Out Of Africa
Kenya’s impressive background of conservation has resulted in wildlife destinations with incomparable game viewing and experiences. We have breathed in the dust of Amboseli while watching elephants marching under the majestic gaze of Kilimanjaro, watched cheetah hunting across the plains of the Mara, and, pulses racing, witnessed lions stalking their prey in Naibosho while a leopard looked on from the lofty bows of a nearby acacia. Elegant and proud, Kenya is also home to the Maasai and Samburu tribes, the Turkana and the Kikuyu - cultures of people whose histories are intertwined with each other and the landscape and its wildlife. Like many of our African destinations, Kenya is perfect for a beach and bush holiday. Its beaches that are indisputably some of the most beautiful to be found on the continent with magnificent private concessions just a short flight away. Many operators have been in Kenya for years, which is a blessing and a curse… we always try to stay away from any herds of tourists and mass operations, while truly crafting an exclusive experience that draws on the deep knowledge of the Kenyan people and that exposes you to the real essence of the country.
Kenya is a country with diverse landscapes, peoples and experiences.
Kenya is truly equatorial, almost exactly cut in half by the equator. Somalia borders the north-eastern section of the country with the Indian Ocean providing many tantalising beach destinations on the south-eastern shores of the country. Tanzania lies due south, with the most famous border being that of the Mara and Serengeti game reserves - where animals may freely cross, but humans may not. Uganda lies to the west, sharing Lake Victoria - although the geo-politics of the Lake are too complex to cover here, and Somali to the north. A diverse geography of arid, highland and coastal region given reign to a diverse landscape and climate.
The capital Nairobi lies towards the south of the country, and receives many international flights into Jomo Kenyatta International. Some smaller places may leave Wilson Airport, but these flights tend to head towards neighbouring countries or provide space for private charters.
Kenya tends to enjoy a temperate climate. During the peak season over July to October and the holidays over December, advanced bookings are recommended.
March to June, and October to November
Most of the year, Kenya enjoys a really temperate climate during the day with cool evenings and early mornings. During the long rains between March and June, however, conditions can be very wet
June - October
At this time of year, the Great Migration can be witnessed in the Mara.
