This is classic big game country, rich with natures most feared predators. Game reserves and National Parks in Kenya (over 40 in total) such as the Masai Mara, Amboseli, Samburu and Tsavo mean that parks, reserves and private conservancies account for 10% of Kenya's surface, spanning desert, grasslands and dense mountain forest.
But there is more to Kenya than just a 'regular' safari (if there is such a thing!). The various lakes afford an opportunity to see amazing birdlife, and also a traditional way of life for local fishermen on Lake Victoria. It is possible to combine wildlife with camel, horse and bicycle safaris in the Laikipia Plateau region. Walking, mobile and lower-budget adventure safaris are available throughout. Kenya has a great range of experiences for everyone.
The Kenyan coastline offers an exotic beach extension to your safari, with some beautiful beaches and some good quality hotels.
Watamu, north of Mombasa near Malindi, is one of Kenya's finest beaches and the site of a Marine National Park offering excellent snorkelling and scuba diving. South of Mombasa is Diani beach, 10km of soft, white sand.
The further north and south from Mombasa, the more remote and authentic it becomes, so a little extra effort and expense is well rewarded.
