Top 10 Kenya Safari Experiences

Safari vacations in Kenya are quite rightly billed as holidays of a lifetime. After all, where else are you able to amalgamate sunny conditions, fine dining, luxurious accommodation and incredible game viewing experiences all in one break?

Whether you’re visiting the world famous Masai Mara, the Rift Valley-based Amboseli National Park or the marine reserves of Mombasa, Kenya yields unique holiday experiences that are like no other. On that note, here are our top ten.

 

Kenya 4Wd Game Drives

 

4WD game drives

Game drives are perhaps the most instantly recognisable facet of a safari. There is nothing quite like heading out onto the vast savannah grasslands in purpose-built four wheel drive vehicles with an almost overwhelming air of freedom and possibility. This is the best way to get up close to Africa’s famed Big Five.

 

Kenya Masai Tribe

 

Tribal land tours

The Masai Mara does not simply describe the National Park but also pays homage to Kenya’s Maasai people who migrated to modern-day Kenya and Tanzania in the fifteenth century. Visiting their tribal lands is a great way to grow accustomed to traditional African ways of life while adding some versatility to your game viewing break.

 

Whale Watching Kenya

 

Whale watching

Think of safaris and most will think of lion and elephant but whale count too. Spectacular whale sightings can be observed off the coast of Watamu which is a Kenyan fishing village located north of Mombasa.

 

Lake Nakuru Flamingos

 

Flamingo sightings at Lake Nakuru

Kenya’s Great Rift Valley features two prominent lakes - Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru - and it is at the latter whereby as many as 400 different species of birdlife can be found, most notably pink flamingos which gather in their droves, using the lake as their feeding grounds.

 

Kenya Hot Air Ballon Ride

Think Kenya’s game reserve lands are large from a vehicle? Well; you’ll get to appreciate just how vast they are via hot air balloon rides. These invigorating journeys provide an alternative angle from which wildlife can be spotted.

 

Dani Beach Resort

 

Relaxing at the Papillon Lagoon Reef

This hand-selected Kenya Safari accommodation complex is heaven on earth. Relax on a sun lounger in this Diani Beach resort with the placid waters of a large scale palm fringed swimming pool a few metres away while the breeze from the Indian Ocean cools you down.

 

Thomson Falls

 

Admire Thomson Falls

Thomson Falls is a stunning 243 ft force located on Kenya’s Ewaso Ng’iro River. This pursuit is best enjoyed with a visit to our next entry.

 

Olpejeta Chimps

Kenya Guided Tour

 

Guided walking tours

While 4WD game drives are guided, guided walking tours are also a great way to negotiate your new found surroundings with the trusty assistance of local tribespersons informing you every step of the way.
