Kenya Safari

One of the most iconic safari destinations, it is probably safe to say that Kenya Safari options rank as the original African safari experience. With famous national parks like the Masai Mara, Amboseli and Samburu, a vibrant capital city like Nairobi, a white sandy beached coastline along the tropical Indian OceanKenya Safari tours are one of the most visited African safari destinations. With wildlife spectacles like the Great Migration to the snow covered peaks of Africa's second highest mountain Mt Kenya, the Big 5, amazing cultural interactions and classic Kilimanjaro views, Kenya has an amazing amount on offer.

We have compiled itineraries that incorporate these classic Kenya Safari highlights. Our Kenya Safari recommendations can be seen in the Original Big Game Safari tour or look at our East African Family Safari for a vacation to suit the whole family. Kenya Safari tours offers excellent African vacations. Some of our favorite lodges and tented camps are based in Kenya.
For an upmarket, exclusive authentic  experience Cheli & Peacock operate some beautiful camps like Elsa's Kopje in Meru, Joy's Camp in Samburu or the well known Elephant Pepper Camp in the Mara. &Beyond manage Kichwa Tembo on the banks of the Mara Rive, the perfect location for the annual Great Migration

Although the main attraction in Kenya Safari travel is big game there is lots of cultural interaction. Mombasa and the islands off the mainland offer magical beach getaways. Our Kenya Safari & Beach Holiday gives you some great ideas. For the best time to visit Kenya you can look at our recommendations here. Kenya is a classic destination and combines well with Tanzania or Gorilla Trekking in Uganda.

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is the second most visited Kenya safari park after the Masai Mara. Famed for the classic photographic image of elephants walking in front of snow capped Kilimanjaro, this is still one of the main attractions that the park holds and a big reason for its Kenya safari visitors. Mount Kilimanjaro is actually across the border in Tanzania. But Amboseli offers some of the best views of Africa's highest mountain.

Laikipia

A large plateau made up of tribal lands and private conservancies, Laikipia is one of the few Kenya safari locations where wildlife numbers are actually increasing. Located on the equator in the Rift Valley Province most of the land is privately owned. Some great partnerships have been formed between the local communities and private Kenya safari owners and the area is firmly on the tourism map.

Lake Naivasha and Nakuru

Lake Naivasha and Nakuru form part of the Great Rift Valley Lakes. There are 4 of these alkaline lakes in the area. Due to the alkaline waters the lakes are a huge source of food for thousands of lesser and greater flamingoes that feed in the shallow waters. There are so many that sometimes it is all you can see so looks like the lakes are covered in a carpet of pink on your Kenya safari tour!

Masai Mara

This iconic Kenya safari landmark is found in South West Kenya and is the northern continuation of the Serengeti in Tanzania. Completely unfenced, animals roam freely between the Masai Mara and the Serengeti. The Mara is famous for its unbelievable wildlife viewing. This includes the Big 5 and of course the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles.
