Stirring. Soulful. Sublime. Kenya is a country of magnificent landscapes and tribal trials.
Vast savannahs flooded with herds of wildlife, snow-capped mountains on the equator, the thundering hooves of a million wildebeest, dust-clouded valleys trickling zebra, and great African predators lurking in the shadows. Still, it’s the people who farm or roam that bring colour and context to Kenya’s land. From the Maasai, to the Kikuyu, they innovate to conserve, upholding traditions against the press of modernity.
Take a dawn game drive across the vast Maasai Mara; discover on horseback; dine under a lone Acacia tree on the vast plain; explore secret helicopter drops in remote locations; see flamingo-flocks in Lake Natron, the great elephant wetlands of Amboseli, rugged Chyulu Hills, wildlife-rich Lewa, and Mount Kenya National Park; follow the earth’s most spectacular migration; encounter indigenous cultures; arrive at roaming luxury encampments; dine in the bush under the stars, sharing tales of local lore by the camp fire; dance to the eerie voices of the local choir; trek to the Turkana Basin with a world-renowned Kenyan palaeontologist and anthropologist; cast off under the shadow of Mount Kenya or race quad bikes along dry river beds.
Where to Stay
Opulent lodges and specially set-up mobile camps in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
When to Go
Kenya’s long dry season stretches from July to September, which corresponds with the Great Migration. Combine with Tanzania or add a paradisiacal finale in the Seychelles, Zanzibar, or Mauritius.
