According to luxury and adventure Africa experts Yellow Zebra Safaris, Kenya is back on the map and for good reason.
Having faced a difficult few years, this safari giant has a newfound optimism and is revelling in a boom in tourism.
Free from Foreign Office warnings, Kenya is back doing what it does best, delivering phenomenal Big Five game viewing, beautiful beaches and Africa’s greatest diversity of landscapes, all just an eight-hour direct flight from London.
Easily one of Africa’s finest wildlife destinations, Kenya is home to the Maasai Mara National Reserve, which is famed for its wildebeest migration, diverse general game and a huge population of predators.
Meanwhile, Amboseli National Park provides one of the best places in Africa for elephant viewing and Laikipia in Central Kenya is receiving recognition for its incredible wildlife and conservation areas.
Further afield, remote parks charm safari connoisseurs whilst the cultural interactions across the country are some of the very best.
Unique highlights of a Kenya safari include the incredibly popular Giraffe Manor, where Rothschild giraffe literally join guests for breakfast!
Keen twitchers flock to Lake Bogoria, where flamboyant crowds of pink flamingos can be found, just one of over 1,000 species of bird recorded in Kenya.
For those who wish to safari like a royal, Treetops is famed for being the lodge where a girl climbed into the tree as a princess and came down as Queen, whilst Prince William chose the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy for a romantic proposal away from any prying paparazzi.
Kenya also provides the rare opportunity to spot black and white rhinos in the wild, as the country is home to East Africa’s highest population of these endangered animals.
