Luxury Kenya Safari

Fall in love with Africa on safari in Kenya.  

Kenya Map

The original safari destination, Kenya in East Africa stretches from the Indian Ocean coast in the east to Lake Victoria in the west, and borders Tanzania in the south. Encompassing savannah plains, lakelands and acacia forests – and home to the Big 5 (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino), Kenya promises a classic safari experience. There’s a nostalgia here that recalls canvas luxury tents with gin and tonic sunset cocktails. On safari in Kenya, it’s easy to believe you’re in a scene straight from “Out of Africa.”  

Those in the know will tell you that the ultimate luxury Kenya safari includes wildlife viewing and luxury lodges. Witness the Great Migration in the Masai Mara. See the snow-capped vista of Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro from Amboseli National Park, and take part in authentic cultural encounters with local Maasai tribes.   

Of course, it is the Great Wildebeest Migration travel packages that are the main drawcard for Kenya safari travelers. The annual event sees some 1.4 million wildebeest and a few hundred thousand zebras travel through Tanzania’s vast Serengeti National Park into the famed Masai Mara, Kenya, in search of new grazing. Beyond the well-known Masai Mara, Kenya is also home to Lake Nakuru National Park, famous for its large herds of antelope and hundreds of colorful bird species, as well as the community driven conservancies of Laikipia in the north (situated close to imposing Mount Kenya). Don’t be surprised, however, if the tall and dignified red-robed Maasai steal the show. These semi-nomadic people are one of the world’s last great warrior cultures and an enduring symbol of traditional Kenyan culture.  

Kenya is a picture-perfect destination for bush-and-beach vacations. When you have had your fill of the wild, head straight to the country’s tropical Indian Ocean coastline, home to the pristine shores of popular island-style destinations such as Diani Beach. Here, the white sandy beaches invite you to go diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, or just to put your feet up, kick back and adjust your body clock to Kenya time. Kenya also combines easily with Tanzania, and Rwanda, allowing you to add gorilla trekking to your combo Kenya safari.  

For honeymooners, a Kenya safari epitomises classic luxury. For families, a Kenya vacation is a more affordable option than other, more remote regions in Africa, with plenty of child-friendly lodges catering to the needs of young adventurers (and adventurers who are young at heart). 

Best Time to Visit Kenya on Safari:

Game viewing on a Kenya safari is at its best during the dry seasons (May to September, and January through February). The safari high season runs from July through November, when the annual Great Wildebeest Migration is in full swing. If you’re a bird-watching enthusiast, visit Kenya between October and April when the migrant species have arrived.  



The Masai Mara in Kenya offers spectacular game viewing and is a popular destination for Great Migration tours.

Witness striking Mount Kilimanjaro from Amboseli National Park, home to the biggest tusker elephants in Africa.
