Journey, that’s what the Swahili word ‘safari’ means and it is here in Kenya where the safari first began. 

Where The Safari
First Began

One of the most sought-after safari destinations in the world. From the great wildebeest migration of the Maasai Mara to the Amboseli grasslands beneath Mount Kilimanjaro, there is nowhere quite like it. Incredible national parks and reserves, conservation efforts, outstanding safari guides and world-class accommodations in some of the most luxurious and aesthetically pleasing lodges and camps in Africa are all part of the experience.

From the escarpments of Laikipia in the north-central region to the rolling hills of Tsavo in the southeast, the geography is striking and unique, as is the wealth of wildlife and bird species that call it home.  This vast and ancient land is home to the Great Rift Valley, vast plains and lakes whose shores early man once roamed.

Maasai Mara

The Maasai Mara is a vast, untamed wilderness teeming with iconic wildlife and embodying the captivating essence of Africa's natural beauty. The Mara, as it is known, covers an area of some 1,500 square kilometres in the southwest of Kenya and together with the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania forms one of the most critically important ecosystems in Africa. 

Amboseli National Park

Located in the southeast of Kenya, Amboseli National Park’s defining feature is the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. The park has a history as one of the oldest protected areas in Kenya and is renowned for its large herds of big-tusked elephants and a variety of wildlife. The name Amboseli comes from a Maasai word meaning ‘salty dust’ and refers to the alkaline lake at its heart.

Laikipia Plateau

Found between the slopes of Mount Kenya and the northern deserts, the Laikipia Plateau is a stunning region known for its dramatic landscapes and abundant wildlife. Testament to the unified conservation efforts by a group of forward-thinking landowners, Laikipia is home to half of Kenya's rhino population, both black and white, and the country's second-largest population of elephants.

Tsavo National Park

Tsavo West National Park is Kenya’s oldest and largest national park, covering boundless space and varied terrain. Comprising two national parks divided into parts by a railway line. Tsavo West National Park has a rocky landscape and wooded grasslands, on the other side, Tsavo East National Park has semiarid grasslands and savannahs, which is the home to the wildlife species. 

Lake Nakuru

In the heart of Kenya's Great Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru stands as a shimmering, pink-tinged jewel amid contrasting landscapes. The large alkaline lake is surrounded by lush forests and rocky escarpments, with the lake’s azure waters creating a stunning contrast against the backdrop of rolling hills. The park is celebrated for its spectacular flocks of flamingos.
