Kenya is the cradle of safaris; follow the dust of the herds as they cross the savannas and experience the vastness of nature.

Explore the breathtaking safari areas of Kenya, including Masai Mara, Amboseli, Laikipia, and Samburu. Admire an abundance of wildlife during your safari in Kenya. In Nairobi, visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Giraffe Manor.

Masai Mara is renowned for the spectacular migration between June and August, when millions of animals cross the border from Tanzania to Kenya. The famous ‘wildebeest migration’ offers an unforgettable experience. Outside this period, Masai Mara is also worth visiting. It is much quieter, and the big cats are there throughout the year.

Combine your tailor-made trip with a visit to Tanzania or a gorilla trekking experience.

The most beautiful safari area of Kenya

Masai Mara

Driving across the vast plains, you see dust clouds rising in the distance. Thousands of animals gather at the river. Tension builds, and then the first one jumps into the water.

During the migration in the Masai Mara, millions of wildebeests, zebras, and Thomson’s gazelles cross the Mara River. It is a beautiful and sometimes dramatic spectacle that provides nature enthusiasts with the ultimate safari experience. It is not always easy to witness a perfect crossing; patience and a bit of luck are required. If you come especially for these “Mara crossings,” consider staying in the area for a longer duration.

In addition to these large herds, there are “big cats” present in the Mara throughout the year: lions, cheetahs, and leopards. All the ingredients for a fantastic safari experience.

Kenya offers unique opportunities for your tailor made safari.

The best time for your tailor made safari to Kenya

The best time for a customized safari trip to Kenya is from early July to October, which coincides with the peak of the great migration.

The dry season spans from June to October and from December to March.

November experiences short afternoon rains.

During the green season from March to May, many young animals can be observed. Lodge prices are quite favorable during this time.

Special Areas in Kenya

Kenya offers unforgettable wildlife experiences not only in the Masai Mara but also in parks such as Lake Nakuru and Amboseli. In Lake Nakuru, millions of flamingos welcome you like a pink cloud. Amboseli is home to many elephant families, with the opportunity to admire Mount Kilimanjaro in clear weather. In the northern part of Kenya, Laikipia, an untouched and rugged wilderness, is recommended. Here, you can spot the Big Five and interact with tribes such as the Masai or Samburu, who manage the wildlife reserves. Additionally, a relaxing beach vacation can be arranged as well.
