The birthplace of the modern safari, Kenya is an East African gem offering visitors the chance to experience one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. With camps and reserves often run by the local communities and tribes rather than private companies, Kenya’s wildlife plays a big role in the country’s culture.
Kenya’s savannahs are speckled with game reserves where coming into direct contact with safari animals is the norm. The Giraffe Manor always has friendly visitors popping their heads in for a spot of breakfast, and then round out the complete wilderness experience by following zebras and wildcats on foot in the Meru National Park. Once you’ve had your fill of Kenya’s 45 national parks and reserves, there’s a gorgeous coastline waiting for you to relax on or splash around on with some water sports.
The dry season is from June to October, which coincides with the annual wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara.
