Karibu Kenya, that one place where you will get the complete East Africa experience.

The country is home to 43.5 million people and with an annual growth rate of 2.6%, Kenya is the seventh-most populated country in Africa. Demographically, it is also very young, with the average age around 18 years and more than 50% of the population under 25. Independent since 1963 but already being the largest economy in the EAC, Kenya is a major player in both the region and sub-Saharan Africa as a whole.

Its capital city of Nairobi is home to 3.1 million people. It is an ideal getaway for locals and foreign tourists alike. There are attractions that date back to the colonial and pre-colonial Kenya. In addition to a strong heritage, a vibrant business community, and an array of cultures, it has a National Park. Nairobi is the only city in the world where a National Park can be found within the city boundaries.

In the early stages of the 20th century, the European elite already visited Kenya for a safari. In the novel ‘Out of Africa’ by Karen Blixen she had spoken about the country that was beloved by so many. Kenya is a balanced safari destination with enormous variety and abundance of wildlife. You will find East Africa’s most celebrated highlights: from a snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, the equator, Kenya’s Great Rift Valley which was formed around 20 million years ago when the crust of the Earth was split and not to forget about the Fourteen Falls in Thika which is one of the longest and steepest waterfalls in Africa.

But especially the unrivalled wildlife is viewed by thousands of tourist on a yearly basis, with experiencing the wildebeest migration at the Masai Mara as a dream many see fulfilled. Both in terms of numbers and variety of species, it will leave you speechless. The whole of the big five (rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard) but also animals such as giraffes, zebras, hyenas, cheetahs and a wide range of bird species can all be found in Kenya. Have a cup of delicious Kenyan coffee, a plate of Ugali and enjoy all there is to experience. Hakuna Matata!

Our Highlights for you!

Masai Mara

Make sure you include the Masai Mara into your safari bucket list! It is certain to be the most rich wildlife real-estate on earth. For some things there are just not enough words to empress what you’re trying to say, but sincerely: you must visit the Masai Mara. As in the Serengeti (Tanzania), the wildebeest are the dominant inhabitants of “The Mara”, their numbers are estimated in the millions.

During the Great Migration, they all cross the river towards Tanzania. An immorial mission and known to be the survival of the fittest. “Mara” is Masai language for the circles of trees, scrub, savanna, and cloud shadows that mark the area. You will find the entire big five and might even meet the stars of popular wildlife TV series; the big cats. Discover the incredible Masai Mara now!


Iconic Africa; imagine a grazing elephant in a yellowish sheet with Africa’s highest mountain on its background. Amboseli was home to perhaps the most researched elephant in the world, and the subject of many books and documentaries. Echo died in 2009 in her sixties, being followed for almost four decades. If it is your dream or not, getting eye to eye with an elephant is memorable.

Their size, friendly energy and the power they radiate, are of a whole other level. Bring together the spectacular view of Mount Kilimanjaro with the dry and dusty earth trampled by herds of elephants and hundreds of other species. It is an experience by itself, but can you even imagine this scenery from a hot air balloon?! Interested? Embark on a journey through the Amboseli National Park right away!

Tsavo East

Tsavo East is a book by itself. A park with many stories. Tsavo is named by River Tsavo, crossing both Tsavo East and Tsavo West. In 1948 the National Park was divided in two parts, by a railway. One of the known stories is that about the “Maneaters of Tsavo”. During the construction of the railway, over a 130 man got killed by two lions. And these are actually the animals for which you would travel to Tsavo East. The environment is generally flat without any dense vegetation, but known for the deep red colours of the earth.

And then again, it offers great possibilities to find lions in their comfortable habitat. Tsavo East is also known for the red elephant. It does raises eyebrows; not grey or even brown but red. However, the population of these red elephants dropped. A great man named David Sheldrick, build two elephant rehabilitation centers within in the park and so far have been able to bring back 40 of them, into the wild. It is for you to visit and see the beautiful work they do with these remarkable animals.
