Kenya Beach Safari

Kenya’s eastern boundary is an unbroken line of blue, an azure strip of ocean lying within the protective shelter of reef. 

The coastline of Kenya is a tropical idyll of soft white sands and gentle sea breeze, where the passing of a day is marked by the slow arc of the sun. The pace of life on the coast is notably slower, languid, more relaxed and at peace with the world.

The turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean brought Kenya’s history to exotic life, washing these shores with influences from all over the world. 

To explore the coast is to explore history itself, and unwind a fascinating tale written on the winding streets of the 14th Century town of Lamu, or in the bustling dhow docks of Mombasa or the ghostly ruins of Gedi, a deserted city lost deep in the jungle. 

Dive beneath these waters and discover an undersea paradise. The coral reefs teem with fish, a kaleidoscope of colour and life.

Come ashore to beach resorts and hotels that let you relax and experience this paradise in style and comfort. 

Lay back and enjoy yourself, or get out and explore. Immerse yourself in a unique coastal culture as rich and rewarding as the local Swahili cuisine. 

Step back from the beach and discover expanses of rainforest, game rich river deltas, and much more than you ever expected.

 
Currency

Wildlife Safari in Kenya

The boundless wilderness and big game of this region has long attracted adventure seekers from all over the globe. No other African country can boast such an incredible range of landscapes, unique geographical features and species.

Kenya offers the visitor a chance to experience a natural world unchanged by the passage of time. The Kenyan wilderness is home to an endless array of ecosystems, the staging ground for natural cycles of life, death and regeneration as old as the planet itself.

This great range of natural habitats means that there is plenty to explore, and plenty of species to encounter. This is a land of endless potential for the wildlife enthusiast. From great migratory herds of the open savannah to an incredible abundance of birdlife, from the depths of a tropical rainforest to the depths of the Indian Ocean teeming with fish, this a world of natural wonders.

A safari into the wilds of Kenya is a journey into nature at its purest. Everywhere you look there is a profusion of life.
