LUXURY KENYA SAFARIS SUMMED UP: Kenya is the land of variety, everywhere you go there are different tribes, elegant in their finery. The culture here is a real highlight but areas such as the Masai Mara, when combined with the North (Samburu, Laikipia or Meru) are so different you feel as if you’ve been in two different countries. Kenya’s coastline is also stunning with white sand and turquoise ocean, not to mention Lamu, one of the world’s most unique islands and a haven of tranquility. The Great Rift Valley also passes through Kenya and the lakes can provide a relaxing change to your safari. We’re lucky enough to still work with some of Kenya’s most remote and luxurious safari camps, so overcrowding isn’t an issue for our guests. It is the Kenyan people themselves that often make your safari here so special – they are charismatic, charming and have a fantastic sense of humour.
