kenyan luxury safaris, Lodges and campsKENYA THE MAGIC LAND a land full of stark contrasts.  From tropical beaches to snow capped mountains, dramatic arid landscapes to lush savannahs teaming with game.  Beautiful people, diverse cultures and ancient traditions!  An Eden for wildlife and birds.  There is so much to see and do, that one visit is not enough to experience all that this wonderful country has to offer.  I’m sure after your first safari to Kenya you will want to come back time and time again; it somehow manages to get under your skin, what we call the ‘Kenya Bug’.   A safari in Kenya captures the imagination and awakens the spirit of adventure.

We offer a 'one stop holiday planning service' (all under one roof), drawing from personal experience, to introduce you to this amazing country.  Tourism in Kenya has come on in leaps and bounds and they are aiming to develop quality over quantity “low impact high income”.  Higher standards have been set and codes of conduct are enforced where necessary which encourages responsible tourism practices. 

Ethical or Eco-Tourism is the buzz word which is defined as ‘responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and sustains the well-being of the local people’.  Eco-Tourism Kenya was formed in 1996 and now a number of hotels, lodges and camps have been certified under the eco-rating scheme.  An eco-rating is based on efforts to conserve the environment (sustainable tourism) and supporting the welfare of local communities. We endeavor to support these operators where possible.

fish and safari kenyaWhen it comes to choosing a safari, we hope this site will give you a good idea of what is available, if there is something that you have not seen which you are interested in, please get in touch and I’m sure we will be able to get the information for you.  The safaris we organize do use operators and samburu safariaccommodation at the ‘top end’ of the scale as we feel this will give you the best experience of Kenya rather than having to be part of a crowd rushing around the country and not getting a chance to experience ‘true Africa’.  For the most part we recommend flying from place to place, either using scheduled services or private charters in small single or twin engine aircraft. 

There are two main rainy seasons in Kenya that dictate the best time to visit, rather than changes in temperature.  The long rains are normally April through to mid June and the short rains in November, these months are known as the ‘low season’.  During the high season it can be busy in certain areas although if you visit the right places and have a good guide these busy areas can be avoided.  Low season months can still be very rewarding, it often does not rain every day, temperatures are cooler and accommodation more readily available although some properties do close for the rainy months.
