Kenya Safaris | Luxury Safari Vacations 2017/18 | Great Safaris
The romance of an African safari was born in Kenya, and our Kenya safaris take you there. Her seductive siren call bewitched such notables as Hemingway, Winston Churchill and Denys Finch Hatton. Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, today is a colorful tapestry woven with many ethnic groups, modern and colonial buildings, sleek Mercedes and dusty donkey carts. Here weary travelers can stretch out the kinks of air travel and replenish their energies in anticipation of the safari.
Our Kenya safaris can take you to the Great Rift Valley, Mount Kenya, Amboseli National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro and more… and only Kenya offers the chance to experience the Migration in the famed Masai Mara Game Reserve.
Kenya’s landscapes are rich in diversity, from snow-clad mountain and glaciers to arid deserts, from dry savannah to lush lakes and dense forest. The Great Rift Valley, its floor littered with lakes and extinct volcanoes, cuts through Kenya from north to south. On the Equator, majestic Mount Kenya with its snow-capped peaks rises above endless grassland plains. In the central highlands of Kenya rise a beautiful mountain range, the Aberdares, which, for the most part, tower to over 10,000 feet in altitude. Amboseli National Park lies below the most famous symbol of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. At 19,340 feet Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest free standing mountain in the world. The surrounding area is flat, covered by savannah and acacia scrub and the animals stand in silhouette against this towering majestic giant, its snow-clad peak floating in the stark blue African sky.
Masai Mara National Reserve is situated to the west of Nairobi on Tanzania’s northern border. The Masai Mara offers wonderful scenery and is perhaps the only region left in Kenya where the visitor may see animals in the same super-abundance as existed a century ago and witness the Great Migration.
To the west is Lake Victoria, the largest of Africa’s lakes and the legendary source of the Nile. To the South, the Indian Ocean coast offers sandy white beaches, and turquoise seas protected by a fascinating coral reef. Kenya is one of the world’s great holiday destinations.
