Discover why Kenya is the World’s leading safari destination

Kenya has recently been voted the world’s leading safari destination at the World Travel Awards. Discover why we agree Kenya is one of the best places in the world to go on safari.

It’s easier to spot the game

Kenya is home to a variety of incredible landscapes, but it’s the flat plains of the Masai Mara and Sambura National Park that makes the game viewing some of the best in the world. Uninterrupted views across vast grassy plains make it easier to spot the Big 5 amongst many other species.


Value for money

If you’re looking to get more bang for your buck on your safari, then Kenya is the place for you. Many of the national parks are within easy distance of each other which means that it is easy to go to a number of exciting destinations without compromising on budget or standards. Exciting road safaris are the most cost effective way to take in Kenya’s breathtaking scenery and to explore a wide variety of reserves and national parks along the way.

Fantastic range of accommodation

Whether you are looking for a luxurious couples retreat, family friendly tented accommodation, small and intimate lodge or a larger complex – you’ll find it in Kenya. There is something for all budgets and styles making it easier to find your perfect safari experience.

The closest safari destination

Kenya boasts the most hassle-free journey – it’s a simple direct flight to Nairobi which takes around 8 hours. From Nairobi, the first transfer to your safari destination takes around 3 hours.

Get off the beaten track

On a game drive your driver guide will happily go off the beaten track to ensure you get the best game viewing. You can take the best binoculars you can afford, but there is nothing better than getting up-close to the animals.
