Kenya

Delve into one of the world’s most iconic travel destinations bursting with panoramic beauty, expansive wildlife reserves, a rich tribal culture and golden beaches.

For nearly 60 years, we have been delivering show-stopping safaris to discerning travellers showcasing the best Kenya has to offer.

With over 40 national parks and reserves playing host to abundant wildlife, snow-capped mountains, vast salt lakes and bustling cities, this mesmerising country is one of the world’s most iconic travel destinations and it’s where the A&K story began.

Each corner of the country is distinct with rare appeal, diverse landscapes and rich wildlife: from the rough and rugged terrain of Samburu Game Reserve in the north to the private reserves of Laikipia; the sparkling Rift Valley lakes and wild Meru National Park; Amboseli Game Reserve in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro and the wide open plains of the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve, home to the greatest wildlife show on earth – The Great Migration. And there are beautiful palm-lined beaches of soft sand with coral reefs to explore.

On an A&K luxury safari to Kenya, you’ll travel beyond the well-trodden path to private reserves where the wildlife is abundant and the viewing experience uncrowded and intimate. Conservation minded camps and lodges are handpicked to ensure your footprint is light and that impact on the surrounding environment is minimal. Kenya has a rich conservation tradition which A&K has been an integral part of for decades. And as an A&K guest you can visit and participate in some of A&K Philanthropy’s inspirational community and conservation projects.

When to Go

Located on the equator, Kenya is warm year-round, however expect it to be cool in the early morning and at night — particularly if you are on a safari.

There are two rainy seasons — from April to May and in November; it is typically dry and hot the rest of the year. The annual wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara occurs between July and October, depending on the timing of the rainy seasons.
