Most of Kenya’s parks and reserves are well serviced by spectacular Safari Lodges. These allow the tourist to experience the harsh African climate, yet be pampered in style to ease the aches of long game drives.
Most multiday Kenya safari tours use these lodges as stop over points as many are of a high international standard, geographically well- placed and some are even a destination in itself. Tree Tops in Aberdares National Park is an example of the latter as over 60 years ago a young Princess Elizabeth stayed there, famously entering as a princess and leaving as a queen (as her father passed away while Elizabeth was there).
The majority of the Kenya Safari Lodges offer fully serviced accommodation, swimming pools, spa and beauty treatments and more. All this is generally packaged into a building that blends into the environment and the staff coming from local communities. This means that all the employees are committed to providing outstanding service and can also inform you of the local history, culture and activities. The lodges are also, generally, decorated with local art and artifacts, and also have such items for sale. Some lodges are actually tented camps – which gives you the sensation of sleeping under the stars but with all the luxury and trappings that you would expect from a conventional safari lodge.
We pride ourselves in knowing that the lodges that we use on all of our Kenya safari tours are of a high standard and will please the tourist as good value for the money spent.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century the person with an adventurous spirit could set off to explore the heart of deep, dark Africa. On his journey, this person would encounter wild animals, untamed territory and cultures completely foreign to those of his western, European origins. Today, the person with the same adventurous spirit can explore the same Africa by embarking on Kenya safari tours. This adventurer will come close to the same species of game such as elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard amongst many others, will traverse the same plains of the Masai Mara and will experience the same traditional cultures such as the elegant, long-necked Masai tribe. However, unlike in the days of old, this adventurer simply needs to contact us to make it all happen.

Fly into Nairobi and experience a day of this city’s delights before heading to quiet of the bush. You can start your Kenya safari with a visit to the Aberdare National Park in the Great Rift Valley. Apart from the day-time game drives, you can even visit a flood-lit water-hole at night to experience some of Kenya’s Big Five as they come down in the peace to drink.
Then continue your Kenya safari the next day with a visit to the Samburu National Reserve, a great place to take in Kenya’s extensive bird life as well as its culture – you are able to visit a traditional village in the Samburu. Samburu might be a semi-arid area, but it is home to the reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s Zebra, Beisa Oryx, and the long necked gerenuk.
Your safari in Kenya could also include a visit to Lake Nakuru, home to the magnificent pink flamingo. You might think that the lake is coloured pink as the masses of flamingo cluster together changing the landscape into a little girl’s fairy-land.
Of course, no safari in Kenya would be complete without a visit to the world-re-knowned Masai-Mara Reserve. If you are able to go on Kenya safari in the three month window of July to August, you may witness the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra as they fight their way across the crocodile-infested Mara River. This is the ultimate Kenya safari wildlife experience.
