Kenya safari - Unforgettable holidays
If you’re planning a Kenya safari you will be spoilt for choice. Accommodation can be anything from a luxury five-star hotel to a tent and sleeping bag. You could travel over land in a 4x4 or by light aircraft to avoid long road trips. Whether you want a break that blends creature comforts with adventure or one that forgoes luxuries, a specialist tour operator will be able to arrange it.
Types of safari
In Kenya you could enjoy a different type of safari each day. The safari that no doubt comes to mind is the wildlife safari which offers unparalleled views of Kenya’s wildlife in its natural habitat. These can be enjoyed at one of Kenya’s game reserves and national parks. This holiday could be done on a budget, as camping is an option or you could stay in one of the country’s moderately prices lodges.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve is a Kenya safari destination that’s always been popular with tourists. It is known for wildebeest and Kenya’s big five game animals, so you can expect to see lions, elephants, buffaloes, rhinoceros and leopards. Hippos, giraffes, zebras and crocodiles can also be spotted and other nocturnal animals like the Aardvark and Bushbabies could be spotted, if your game ranger takes you on a night-time drive.
If your budget can stretch and you’re happy to fly in a light aircraft, why not take an air safari? This is ideal for tourists on a short break, as it’s the quickest way of seeing different national parks.
Hot air balloon
This is a different type of air safari, as it’s far more sedate that those taken in a light aircraft. This type of safari is particularly popular in Maasai Mara National Reserve, but it is offered at other national parks. As the balloon can fly lower than the light aircraft and because of its slower speeds, tourists can capture more of the country’s incredible landscape on film than they could in a light aircraft.
There are so many options for tourists to Kenya. If you want to stay mobile, you may wish to see the countryside by car on a road safari. Bird watches could indulge their hobby through an organised bird watching safari. Adventure holiday makers could enjoy a mountain biking or rock climbing Kenya safari. No matter what outdoors activity you enjoy best, you will find a fresh approach to it in Kenya.
