About Kenya

Kenya is a country with a great  diversity, beautiful scenery, a large variety of wildlife including the “Big Five”, colourful bird and plant life and fascinating traditional cultures. The people of Kenya are welcoming and friendly. This is the ultimate safari destination.

Kenya’s main attraction is its high concentration of spectacular wildlife that still roams free in the country’s many National Parks and Reserves. The Masai Mara, home to the ‘Big Five” and the spectacular wildebeest migration, it is widely regarded as Kenya’s top wildlife area.

The Governors’ Camps are ideally located in the heart of the Mara to experience this amazing wildlife spectacle. From Loldia House, you can also see the world’s greatest ornithological spectacle of millions of flamingoes around Lake Nakuru. Mfangano Island is remote and beautiful. Kenya’s immense vistas, friendly people and diverse flora and fauna are appealing to all,  and a safari holiday to Kenya will touch your soul forever.

Masai Mara

Set in the heart of Africa’s Great Plains in Kenya, the Masai Mara boasts 1,672 sq. kilometers of unspoilt wilderness. It offers the best game and bird-viewing not only in Kenya, but anywhere in Africa. The views across the rolling golden grasslands studded with acacia trees, rivers and forests are dazzling, the sense of space overwhelming.

The Great Rift Valley

Breathtaking natural scenery combines with some of Africa’s most memorable wildlife. The Great Rift Valley is a highlight of any trip to Kenya. A huge geological fault-line, the Great Rift Valley stretches round one-sixth of the Earth’s circumference. Along its lengths are volcanoes, most now dormant. One of the rarest animals found here is the rhino.

Lake Victoria

Lake Victoria is the setting for a holiday that’s about as far away from it all as you can possibly get. It’s the world’s second largest freshwater lake and is the magical source of the Nile. The Lake is rich in fish and bird life, its islands lush and verdant. The deep blue waters support an abundant ecosystem. Its shores are lined with groves of banana trees and fishing villages where you’ll always be greeted with a friendly smile and a wave.

Why we love December in the Masai Mara

December brings warm days with scattered rain showers, the grasses on the plains green and everywhere you look there are young and for the antelope the rutting season begins. With the wildebeest gone families of elephant return in numbers to the forests around our camps. Large clans of hyena roam the plains, there are cubs in the lion prides and the migratory birds are back from Europe, feeding nesting and breeding in the Marsh.
