With amazing animals and cool-as culture, Kenya is as African as you can get.
Delete your alarm and switch off your phone because in Kenya you’ll be waking up to the cries of elephants, hippos and zebras!
Don’t forget to pack binoculars and your favourite khaki shorts too as your days will be filled with 4WD safaris through some of the country’s best reserves. Think stunning Lake Naivasha and it’s army of hungry, hungry hippos and Masai Mara National Park with its lanky but oh-so-loveable giraffes.
While you’re here, snap selfies with the colourful Maasai tribespeople and practice your best stories while sitting around the campfire. That’s right, you’ll be out in the savanna beneath billions of glittering stars with nothing but you and the wide-open road. This is an escape like no other.
