Kenya is a diverse place home to over 40 tribes. Track wildlife with a Maasai guide, join a Samburu camel train or try running at the Kenyan highlands.
Follow the frontier southeast to see Amboseli’s elephant herds backed by the white peak of Kilimanjaro, then wander Chyulu’s green hills and forests. North of Nairobi, in the shadow of Mount Kenya, the plains of Laikipia were once dominated by cattle ranches. Now, many are devoted to conservation and the region is once again a haven for endangered species, especially rhinos, African wild dogs and giraffes. Lodges here include some of Africa’s most exclusive, offering an adventurous experience about so much more than game drives. As you head further north, the landscape turns khaki and arider. Samburu county, home to the Samburu people, is a rugged but beautiful place where you can learn about their culture and visit inspiring community-led conservation projects. Beyond this, the Rift Valley’s saline lakes, deserts and volcanic wilds are best explored by helicopter.
When to visit
The most popular time for a safari in Kenya is from late June to October, drier months that coincide with the wildebeest migration’s arrival on the Mara. November and December’s short rains are a favourite for photographers and birders. January into March is warm and drier, a great time for the coast and safari.
