Kenya is renowned as one of the best countries in Africa to see wildlife. Its diversity of habitat, endless beauty and world-class hotels, lodges and tented camps guarantee enduring popularity. The Masai Mara continually receives accolade as one of the world's best wildlife areas; the Great Rift Valley bisects the country, its floor lined with lakes populated by flamingos and many other birds and animals.
However Kenya is also blessed with beautiful beaches and rich marine life, the lesser-known desert in the north, and the temperate highlands around Mount Kenya. Its location at the heart of East Africa and excellent transport links make it easy to combine with other destinations, notably Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and Madagascar.

The Masai Mara
"Very efficient and friendly service - helpful and happy to answer questions. The organisation of the trip once we were in Kenya was faultless. The schedule was perfect with enough time to appreciate all aspects but with enough variety and the ability to feel we had a real sense of what the country was like."
