Wide open plains, hidden coastal coves and exotic colonial hideaways, there’s more to Kenya that just the greatest wildlife show on earth. Whether you’re up for basking on the beach or making friends with an elephant, Kenya has you covered. Home to some of the friendliest locals you might ever encounter, hospitality is a way of life in Kenya. Forty-two tribes reside on this land and everyone is ready to make you feel at home.

Trend-setters make a beeline for the heartland of Kenya, the capital city of Nairobi, before heading out to take their chances on some big game viewing in some of the 59 National Parks. From the world famous Maasai Mara, to the lush Aberdare and soaring red plains of Tsavo National Park, all are rich in game and home to an impressive array of species.

For those who enjoy a little R&R after an action packed safari, Kenya’s coastline offers 500 kilometres of tranquil Indian Ocean waters to sample. From the pretty 14thCentury town of Kilifi on the north coast, which boasts some of the best beaches in the country, to the bustling resorts on the southern coast which offer unparalleled scuba diving, kite surfing and deep sea fishing – the coast is the perfect end to any break in Kenya.
