The Cape & Africa
Bespoke Inspirational Authentic Unforgettable
For many Kenya is quintessential Africa that offers seemingly endless skies, yellow and red savannahs, where the big five animals still roam freely. Most visitors come here to go on safari, the Swahili word that has become synonymous with the country.
Imagine driving across open plains, dotted by thousands of large game animals that appear mirage-like in the sweltering afternoon sun.
Imagine feeling part of a landscape where sweeping grasslands conceal the presence of golden maned lions resting in the shade of flat-topped acacia trees.
Imagine observing elephants striding silently before the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro and following on foot through the African wilderness accompanied by spear-carrying Maasai or Samburu guides.
And imagine gliding over the Mara River and its surrounding riverine forest in a hot-air balloon at sunrise.
All this and more is Kenya.
From wide open savannahs to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya, a Kenya safari holiday is nothing if not magical.
The Indian Ocean meets Kenyan shores to the east, while Lake Victoria joins Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda together in the west. Dust clouds form across the plains as over a million wildebeest and zebra make their annual stampede to and from the Maasai Mara plains. The plains they sweep across are just one of a myriad of terrains found within the borders of the country. Wetlands are home to crocodiles and hippos while the mineral-rich lakes of the Rift Valley attract vast flocks of pink flamingoes, which come for the small fish that thrive there.
Walk in the footsteps of Maasai guides as you are led through the savannah, or soar above the plains while the Great Migration rumbles on below in the shadow of a hot-air balloon.
Stroll along the foot of Karen Blixen’s Ngong Hills, amble between the rocky walls of Hell’s Gate, or bury yourself in the powder-white sand of the coastline, lapped by the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean.
Home to an array of national parks and reserves boasting an abundance of wildlife - most notably the famed Maasai Mara National Park that runs into the Serengeti National Park in neighbouring Tanzania.
The Maasai tribe welcome visitors into their villages, eager to teach others about their semi-nomadic lifestyle and the customs of this warrior nation.
