Mt Kenya - Ganders Travel

Perhaps the best known of Africa’s safari destinations, Kenya’s varied landscapes host all the iconic wildlife and a rich cultural heritage besides. You could safari here multiple times and not see all that’s on offer. 

The open plains of the Masai Mara, highland forests, lush valleys, arid deserts, and freshwater lakes all feature. These varied habitats support an incredible range and diversity of flora and fauna, with three different sub-species of giraffe alone.

Kenya is famous for hosting the annual wildebeest migration and with prey come the predators including lion, leopard, hyena, and enormous crocodiles.  Journeys of giraffe grace the skyline, herds of elephant can be seen throughout, there are pockets where rhino are populous, and plains wildlife are well represented, with species such as gerenuk making the northern part of the country their home.

The rugged beauty of Laikipia provides excellent opportunities to do more than game drives, with horse and camel riding, biking, walking, fishing and quad biking all possible.  There are also fascinating opportunities to learn about the conservation efforts throughout the country.   

After a safari the crystal clear warm waters of the Indian Ocean provide an ideal place to relax.  The Kenyan coast offers plenty of water sports, including snorkelling and diving, as well as the opportunity to visit small coastal fishing villages and soak up local life.

Classic tented camps are a feature of the accommodation in Kenya, many offering interconnected family rooms. Alongside these are luxury lodges and exclusive use houses in prime wildlife areas.  On the coast choose from large hotels to small boutique properties some of which have a lovely ‘safari camp by the sea’ feel to them.  

Kenya enjoys warm weather throughout the year. April and May tend to see most rain, with November prone to showers.
