Kenya is a culturally and historically rich country situated in East Africa and offers breath-taking scenery, fascinating wildlife and unique cultural experiences. Kenya has an array of national parks conserving the dense flora and fauna population and, with our exclusive Kenya Lodge Specials, the country makes for a perfect safari holiday for the whole family.
The Maasai Mara National Park is a beautiful and vast game reserve and is named after the indigenous Maasai people who once lived there. The national park shares its borders with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, which allows for brilliant animal sightings such as The Great Migration of zebra and wildebeest from the Serengeti, that take place every year. Maasai Mara National Park is also renowned for its big cat population including leopards, cheetah and the famous Maasai lion. Animal viewing is seasonal with the dry season being the best time to spot most big game animals as they will be around the watering holes more often; this is also when the national park will be at its most populous as the migration takes place during the dry season as well. If you are a keen bird watcher, an abundance of birdlife can be seen during September to April as they migrate across the Maasai Mara. The park also boasts the Big 5 (lion, buffalo, leopard, rhino and elephant), as well as numerous species of antelope and buck; bat-eared fox, zebra and giraffe also roam freely. The spotted hyena is also closely studied in this area. There are a range of safari activities in the Maasai Mara National Park including game drives and nature walks with trained guides. Accommodation in the national park is plentiful and ranges from ultimately luxurious to very rustic and close to nature, which can all be viewed on our Kenya Lodge Specials, especially the honeymoon package.
The Maasai tribe in Kenya has been practicing their culture for centuries amidst a changing world, and they are more than happy to share their cultural beliefs with visiting guests. The best place to learn about the Maasai is the Maasai market in Nairobi, a six day travelling market that moves to a new destination every day all over the city. The market showcases handmade Maasai artefacts, crockery, jewellery, tokens and much more. Bargaining is essential at the market, and the locals are always ready to strike a good deal.
Kenya has brilliant beaches including the gorgeous Diani Beach, perfect for a romantic honeymoon or a relaxing beach holiday. Sink your feet into the sugary white sand while the inviting blue waves gently wash the shore, lounge on a comfortable deckchair in a tranquil and stunning environment, straight out of a travel brochure. Diani Beach is in close proximity to a local village, and bike rides and tours are readily available, enabling you to interact with the locals and learn about the history and culture of Kenya. Diani Beach is also renowned for their camel rides, a truly unique way of exploring the gorgeous beach and its surrounds. Other activities include snorkelling, surfing lessons, jet skiing and various other water activities. The city of Mombasa is close by, where shopping and nightlife can be experienced.
