WITH ITS LEGENDARY NATIONAL PARKS – FROM THE MASAI MARA, TO MERU (HOME OF LIONESS ELSA), TO THE DRY LANDS OF SAMBURU AND AMBOSELI, KENYA IS WIDELY REGARDED AS THE HOME OF THE CLASSIC WILDLIFE SAFARI.
From the heights of Mount Kenya (Africa’s second tallest mountain) down to the shimmering blue sea and white sand beaches of the Indian Ocean, there is a staggering array of untrammeled landscapes and wildlife to behold, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, gazelles, antelopes, zebras, and many more. The Rift Valley is prominent in Kenya and is the basis for its varied geography and beauty. Importantly, there are airstrips throughout the country, enabling good access to wilderness areas. Many of these places are the homelands of pastoral people whose co-existence with wildlife is part of the value of Kenya’s safari experiences. The five-star safari experience in the solitude and expanse of wilderness, is that gorgeous eco-lodges put one right in the middle of the wildlife, yet with every creature comfort imaginable. For example, in northern Kenya, private conservancies provide exclusive views of the wildlife that abounds here (including rhino conservation), with privileged insight also into the fascinating lifestyle of the areas’ Samburu and Pokot tribes. Just a short flight beyond the plains are the stunning beaches in Lamu, Diani and Mombasa. Here, Africa House Safaris will create idyllic seaside stays for your clients at high-end resorts next to the warm, crystalline ocean. Due to its varied topography, Kenya is renowned as a top birding country, where 1,100 species are noted so far. Some birder trips have recorded 708 bird species (and 72 mammals) on a three-week trip! This shows the amazing quality of wildlife viewing that Kenya can offer, and Africa House Safaris’ expert team has unlocked the secrets to make your visit unforgettable.
