Magical & Mystical
When you think of Africa, you’re probably thinking of Kenya. It’s the lone acacia silhouetted on the savannah against a horizon stretching into eternity. It’s the snow-capped mountain almost on the equator and within sight of harsh deserts. It’s the lush, palm-fringed coastline of the Indian Ocean, it’s the Great Rift Valley that once threatened to tear the continent asunder, and it’s the dense forests reminiscent of the continent’s heart. In short, Kenya is a country of epic landforms that stir our deepest longings for this very special continent.
It encompasses savannah, lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands. It's also home to incredible wildlife such as lions, leopards, cheetah, elephants and rhinos. Visit the Maasai Mara Reserve - famous for its annual wildebeest migrations - or the red elephants of Tsavo, or the Amboseli elephant families in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro, or the massed millions of pink flamingos stepping daintily through Great Lake’s shallows. Africa is the last great wilderness where these creatures survive. And Kenya is the perfect place to answer Africa’s call of the wild.
Welcome to Kenya - vast savannahs peppered with immense herds of wildlife, snow-capped equatorial mountains, traditional peoples who bring soul and colour to the earth and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From hand feeding Giraffes, to adopting orphaned elephants, to taking breath-taking balloon safaris at dawn. There is a lot to do in Kenya. The big 5, a beautiful diversity of landscapes, animals, bird and plant life and fascinating cultures. Kenya is endowed with all these and more. White Sandy beaches on the East African coast, more than 45 National parks and reserves not to mention bustling metropolitan cities and towns.
The abundance of Kenya's wildlife owes everything to one of Africa's most innovative and successful conservation communities. Kenya pioneered the protections of rhinos and elephant using armed rangers. It stopped the emptying of its wilderness and brought its wildlife back from the brink after the poaching holocaust of the 1970s and 1980s. More than that, in places like Laikipia and the Masai Mara, private and community conservancies fuse tourism with community development and wildlife conservation to impressive effect. In other words, if you want your visit to make a difference, you've come to the right place.
Other Adventure Safari Destinations

Land of a Thousand Hills
Rwanda is known as Le Pays des Mille Collines (Land of a Thousand Hills) thanks to the endless mountains in this scenically stunning little country. Nowhere are the mountains more majestic than the Virunga volcanoes in the northwest, and hidden among the bamboo forests are some of the world's last remaining mountain gorillas.
Where Dunes are Mountains
If Namibia is 'Africa for beginners', as is often said, what a wonderful place to start. Few countries in Africa can match Namibia's sheer natural beauty. The country's name derives from its (and the world's) oldest desert, the Namib, and there are few more stirring desert realms on the planet, from the sand sea and perfect dead-tree valleys at Sossusvlei.
Delta's & Dreams
Blessed with some of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth, Botswana is one of the great safari destinations in Africa. There’s nowhere quite like the Okavango Delta on earth. This is a place where wild creatures roam and rule, where big cats and much bigger elephants walk free in one of the world's last great wildernesses.
