On the coast mangrove swamps, rain forests and swaying coconut trees thrive, and inland vast plains of low bush and scrubland – Africa’s famous Acacia trees and wild open vistas. Dense forest and bamboo trees decorate the highlands. Kenya’s wildlife is second to none – the Masai Mara is one of Africa’s most well known national parks, hosting the great migration of wildebeest and countless species in season, and home to rhino, elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard (all of the Big 5) and a huge array of antelope, plains game and magnificent bird species including flamingos, ostriches, vultures and beautiful cranes.
Kenya’s great rift valley is thought to be the place human beings originated and the country is named after Mount Kenya, which originated from the Gĩkũyũ tribe’s name for it, Mount Kirinyaga or ‘God’s resting place’. Masai Tribesmen, pastoralists rearing their cattle across the vast savahhans, are a common sight in their beautiful red robes and offer friendly smiles and expertise in wildlife tracking. Recent troubles have sadly deterred tourists from visiting but the vast majority is unaffected and there are some amazing specials to be found at some of Africa’s finest luxury lodges.
Nairobi is the entry point for most visitors and regional and charter flights can be arranged to the safari airstrips closest to your chosen lodge. Take an air safari, via scheduled domestic airlines (often in small planes with great visibility), or private planes can be chartered for your own exclusive use. If you want more independence, you can easily rent a vehicle for self-drive or with a driver with good roads across most of the country. We strongly recommend going on safari drives with your preferred lodge rather than self drive to enhance your Kenya safari experience.
