Venture into the heart of Africa, where wilderness safaris originated. This unique destination boasts culture, adventure and wildlife experiences that are unique in comparison to any other African or global destination. Float over the savannah plains in a hot air balloon or witness the Great Migration in its earth shuddering trek through the Maasai Mara, skydive at Diani beach or track Wild Dogs through the Laikipia Wilderness – the list of wild and adventurous experiences in this East African wildlife mecca is long and glorious. Kenya boasts volumes of giraffe, zebra and wildebeest grazing in the expansive plains and hippo are commonly seen wallowing in the waters. Expect to encounter a hyena mischievously sniffing about a lion’s kill. Look out for the endemic and eccentric gerenuk as well as the rare fringe-eared oryx. There have been over 1100 bird species recorded in Kenya, including the ground hornbill, white-bellied go-away-bird and hartlaub’s bustard.
