Why we love Kenya
Travel to Kenya and experience a whole load of things that most other countries just can’t provide, manufacture or replicate. You’ll see sunsets on steroids, hear howling while camping in national parks, watch predators stalk their prey and have your eyes burned by a sea of hot pink flamingos. Big cities just can’t compete.
Join a Geckos tour of Kenya to enjoy thrilling lakeside game drives at Lake Nakuru, camp with the Masai in the Loita Hills, spot hippos while on a cruise of Lake Naivasha, watch the circle of life unfold at the Masai Mara National Reserve and experience modern Kenya in action in the hectic streets of Nairobi.
With more lions, leopards, cheetahs, hippos and elephants you can poke a stick at (please don’t poke sticks at the animals) being in Kenya is like travelling through a gigantic, zoological Rubik’s Cube – it doesn’t matter which way you turn, you’ll always find an animal (and never solve the puzzle).
Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.

There's no place on earth quite like Africa. From wildlife to deserts to mountains and beyond, once Africa has touched your heart she never lets go.
For many, it's a dream they don't ever intend to fulfil. Price, distance and the sheer other-worldiness means many of us think, "...Read on...
