Kenya - Highlights
Kenya is home to the original African Safari and is possibly the most popular safari destination in Africa. The word "safari" means "journey" in Swahili, Kenya's official language. BAOBAB Travel offers a fabulous range of trips combining some of the best safari destinations with tropical beaches along the Kenyan Coast.
Kenya is known for the Masai Mara game reserve, the location of the annual Wildebeest Migration when thousands of animals cross the wild waters of the Mara River. The Masai Mara is one of Africa's greatest wildlife reserves with huge densities of all the major game species. Nowhere in Africa are you more likely to see the big cats and the huge herds of herbivores they prey upon. A Hot Air Balloon flight over the plains of the Masai Mara is the ultimate African safari experience. Flying at treetop level, you will enjoy a panoramic view of the wildlife spectacle below. Experience Kenya's culture and learn more about the Masaai Tribe and their nomadic lifestyle, distinctive dress and tribal customs.
In the highlands of the Kenyan Rift Valley the rugged volcanic landscape is alive with wildlife as well as towering mountains and gorges. A private safari in the Oserian Game Corridor and Hells Gate can be complemented with dramatic gorge walks. The areas alkaline lakes also draw in huge flocks of bright pink flamingos and a lake safari by boat is an experience not to be missed.
The Kenyan Coast offers beautiful white sandy beaches and coral reefs that teem with life for scuba divers and snorkellers. There is also the freshwater coast of Lake Victoria where luxurious accommodation and boating safaris are the order of the day. Both destinations are a relaxing way to end your safari in Kenya.
