For us Kenya is about the thrill and thundering energy of the annual wildebeest migration during August and September, the big cats of the Massai Mara, watching huge herds of elephant browsing tree studded grasslands and spending some time with the Maasai people who live there.  

You feel like you are viewing African scenes that have remained untouched for hundreds of years. With a total of 59 National Parks, there are abundant wildlife and game watching opportunities in Kenya.

Marvel at the shores of Lake Nakuru which turn pink with stunning flocks of Lesser Flamingo and where big game wanders about quite oblivious of human activity.  Rhinos are aplenty here.  Explore Mount Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa, or relax here before or after climbing Kilimanjaro whose white top can be seen from Ambosseli and Tsavo. 

Kenya remains a romantic destiantion, infused with tribal, trading and colonial history and culture, and with an unchanging landscape which comes to life with the enthusiasm of excellent safari guides.

For relaxation the Kenyan coastline, towards Tanzania, offers the allure of amazing seafood, relaxation and water sports based around white sandy beaches and the warm Indian Ocean.
