For many years Kenya has been Africa’s most well-known, and most visited, safari destination. The sheer density of visitor numbers has proved too much for some of its best-known locations, but even these can provide a most rewarding visit if careful attention is paid to where you actually stay.

In its favour, Kenya offers unrivalled and stunning scenery, a very well developed internal infrastructure, making getting from place to place very simple, and a huge diversity of wildlife. Visitors can also go horse-riding, play golf and even run a marathon whilst here.

Kenya is a wonderful combination of classic safari destinations, such as Amboseli and the Mara, and less well known (and hence less frequented) ones, such as Meru and Samburu. Click on the panels below to go to our Kenya-specific website and more information.
The Maasai Mara - home to BBC TV's 'Big Cat Diary' - is one of Africa's most famous safari destinations, and is also the place to view the amazing annual wildebeest migration.
Until recently little-known - and hence totally unspoilt - Meru is fast becoming a favoured destination for discerning safari-goers, eager to sample its remarkable wildlife.
Located in the Rift Valley, relatively close to Nairobi, Lake Naivasha is renowned as a world-class birding destination, and also offers sport fishing.
There is an exceptionally wide variety of activities to choose from in Kenya, and as well as game drives we encourage visitors to Kenya to consider including some of the activities that can only be experienced here. Click on the panels below to go to KenyaAway.com and more information.
Providing you can keep to areas where the number of game-viewing vehicles doesn't exceed the number of wild animals, game viewing in Kenya can rival that anywhere else in Africa.
The adventure begins just before dawn, as flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness. And, after a wonderful flight, it ends with a champagne breakfast. Not cheap though!
Actually experiencing how Kenya's Maasai and Samburu people live may remain in your memory long after the images of lions and elephants fade away.
Kenya possesses a wide range of quality lodges, although finding those that combine an especially low price with virtually the same degree of comfort and facilities as their rivals - something that, in other countries, AfricaAway has turned into somewhat of an art - is much more difficult here.

Amboseli National Park ($395 pppn)
An excellent bush camp, located some distance away from the usual tourist routes in Amboseli.
Maasai Mara ($436 pppn)
Probably the Mara's most well-known camp, set in a stunning location directly on the banks of the Mara River.
Meru ($595 pppn)
Named after Elsa the lioness made famous by the film and book ‘Born Free’, this is one of the most elegant lodges in Africa.
