About Kenya

Safaris in Kenya

A gem in the east, Kenya is home to some of Africa’s finest attractions including the Great Migration and a couple of world-renowned game reserves, private conservancies and parks. It boasts of a diverse, immaculate landscape that’s teeming with a world-class avifauna and an incredible array of wildlife. Some of the most amazing creatures you can find are the mighty “Big Five” that’s plenty all year round and the “Little Five” that includes leopard tortoises and antlions. The “Special Five” like Somali ostriches and reticulated giraffes are also abundant as well as migrating wildebeests, zebras and gazelles that graze the Kenyan plains in thick herds. The wildlife doesn’t even end there! Kenya also features a glorious coral wilderness at Kenyan Barrier Reef, the second largest coral reef in the world!

Kenya Safari Holidays 2022

Kenya is one of the countries you will find located in the East African region. It is known for the wildlife in the area and for its amazing scenery.

The country is also known to be the home of diverse tribes such as the Masai Tribe who you’ll come across in your safari journey in the area. There’s definitely a lot to discover in Kenya!

English is widely spoken in Kenya most especially true in the main cities like Nairobi. But the local language is known as Swahili. Here’s a couple of Swahili words we think that will be useful for you during your safari tour:

  • Hello! – Jambo!
  • How are you? – Habari?
  • Good, fine – Mzuri
  • Thank you (very much) – Asante (sana)

Kenyan culture is diverse and we can see that in their religious practices. Around half of the population are Christians, 10% are Muslims and there are some who belong to the Hindu and Sikh minorities. The rest are those who follow African traditions which is often described to be of animist beliefs. Kenyans are warm welcoming people and you can even see this in the tribes residing in the area and not just in the main cities. These people will welcome you with a smile, a song and a dance teaching you of their tradition and a way of life that is uniquely theirs.

As well as our Safaris in Kenya, we also offer a range of other African Safaris. Take a look at our Safaris in TanzaniaSafaris in Uganda. If you are looking for the best places to stay in Kenya, take a look at at our accommodation in Kenya page, here.
