Often called a “land of contrasts,” Kenya has a mix of rich and diverse wildlife and vegetation on top of varying landscapes, all of which make Kenya safaris truly unique experiences. Populated by exotic creatures such as elephants, buffalo and lions, and situated amid tropical forests, desert lands and alpine vegetation, this country provides endless opportunities for adventure.
Embarking on a safari here is the perfect way to experience, first-hand, all the awe-inspiring moments that Kenya has to offer, such as close encounters with endangered species and big game sightings right from the camp site. These trips take travelers to various places around the country that offer the best views of game and scenery, such as Lake Nakuru, Amboseli National Park and Mount Kenya, the second highest peak in Africa.
With many exciting and unique activities in store for travelers, there is no room for idleness on Kenya safaris. Game drives, birding walks and animal watching are only a few of the activities guests can take part in. Some safari operators even arrange for tribal dance performances and slide shows or lectures for those interested in immersing in Kenya’s rich culture.
For many, safaris conjure up images of tents and sleeping bags, but some safari operators offer comfortable trips that come complete with en-suite lodging, hot showers, and sometimes even four-poster beds. Those who want to kick back and relax have the option to lounge on their private verandas, dip in the pool, or pamper themselves with beauty therapy and massages. By enlisting the services of such operators, travelers to Kenya get to experience nature in luxury.
