Kenya

Beach Safari!

Kenya offers a coastline that languidly meanders for 480km/300miles from Somalia in the north to Tanzania in the south, here is where the Indian Ocean meets Kenya in a brilliant blaze of blue, where the crystal-clear azure waters caress the fine white sands. As you lay on the beach with balmy breezes fresh off the sea, whispering palm fronds overhead and the shimmering of waves breaking on the reef in the distance, there's no mistaking where you are, this is the definition of paradise, just lay back, relax, and let the rest of the world drift away. Life on the coast of Kenya is lived at its own relaxed pace or you can discover the lost city of Gedi, deep in a rainforest or trace the journey of Vasco da Gama to Malindi. Visit the island of Lamu or explore the Old Town of Mombasa or climb the battlements of Fort Jesus. Shop in bustling markets for local handicrafts and art.

The nearby National Parks & Reserves of Tsavo, Shima Hills & Mwalunganje can provide the classic safari experience. We can offer regular departure safari tours from Mombasa or Malindi an ideal opportunity to experience the highlights of Kenya without incurring the expense of an exclusive private safari. Kenya is a land of boundless horizons. Moving from the languid coastline to inland where the mass chaos of the yearly migration of wilderbeest, zebra and antelope traveling across the Tanzanian border to reach the lush Masai Mara National Reserve in time for the rains in late June. Predators along the way, swell with this ample “fast food” that surges towards them, creating a dramatic display of sheer animal will, which holds tourists in awe of the harsh realities of survival in these beautiful surroundings.
