Kenya: What to Expect / Highlights

Small Exclusive Lodges

Created by the sons and daughters of the people who invented the safari industry just outside the national parks.

Landscapes Rich in Diversity

Snow-clad mountains and glaciers to arid deserts; dry savannah to lush lakes and dense forest; vast plains and champagne-colored hills of Kenya's Masai Mara. Magnificent wildlife parks, pristine beaches, and ancient Swahili cities.

The Annual Migration

Over 1.4 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle, relentlessly tracked by Africa's great predators, migrate in a clockwise fashion over 1,800 miles each year in search of rain-ripened grass.

Mount Kenya

The highest mountain in Kenya and second highest in Africa, is an extinct volcano which formed a couple of million years ago. It sits astride the equator and its icy summit reaches 17,058 ft.

The Masai People

The Masai are a well known nomadic people who are mainly cattle and goat herders and live off the milk, blood, and meat of their livestock. The Masai, who are characteristically tall and slender, live traditionally in the kraal, a compound within which are mud houses.
