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.

September news from Mfangano Island Camp

This month we said goodbye to Miles and welcomed new manager Thor. Thor returns to Mfangano after 25 years when he last visited us as one of our littler guests. Mfangano has had a warm and balmy weather. New hammocks have gone in to the camp, a pair of double toothed barbets are nesting above the pool, fish eagles call from the bluff above camp and the otters have been swimming past camp in the mornings. We held a successful permaculture workshop for widows on the island and we are now working on the next phases of our permaculture gardens.
