Kenya Vacations

Imagine this scene: you're in a hot air balloon, rising up over the savannah of the Maasai Mara National Reserve just after dawn. Your pilot turns off the burner, and you are floating silently above the plain. Below, lions bask in the new sun, elephants drink from a watering hole, and a herd of wildebeest continues its migration. With the most ... Read more
advanced tourist infrastructure in East Africa, Kenya is a haven for safari-goers. Several incredible parks offer unique attractions -- explore Amboseli National Park to see friendly elephants and catch a glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro, or visit Lake Nakuru to be awed by the thousands of flamingoes. Ever have that desire to go rock climbing high above a grassland spotted with rhinos and lions? Check out Tsavo West National Park for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But don't overlook Kenya’s many other facets such as coastal Mombasa, with its Arab and Portuguese influences, and medieval Lamu Island, where you can sail the archipelago by dhow. However, no trip to Kenya is complete without spending time in the mesmerizing city of Nairobi. Kenya’s capital hosts a flourishing art scene and is both the country’s hip-hop center and one of the major film hubs in Africa.

from March - May and October - December. Safari high season brings heavy crowds to the country from June through September. Although they are perhaps the most curious of creatures, you probably didn’t travel to Africa to take pictures of your fellow khaki-clad humans, so it may be worth considering an off-season visit in January or February when your shot of lions and zebras roaming the plains will be free of any Freds or Susans. If you are headed to Mt. Kilimanjaro or Mt. Kenya, the dry season is also your best bet.

The unsung hero of Kenya shuns the trendy stylish lodges and safari parks further South. Northern Kenya is remote, pushing up against the border with Ethiopia. Here, part of the safari experience is meeting native bushmen, the Samburu. You wouldn’t necessarily visit Northern Kenya for the wildlife, which can be random and sporadic. But a journey here is visiting one of the last frontiers of wilderness in Kenya, yet untouched.

Helicopter Safaris (a unique trend for vips - All Time Safaris Ltd)
Only by flying across this physically diverse wilderness can one truly appreciate the sheer scale of Kenya’s size and beauty. For a more exclusive experience, we recommend taking one’s own private plane – for true luxury and flexibility. For the ultimate “game drive”, take to the skies for a bird’s eye view of Kenya’s dramatic and diverse landscapes. By helicopter you can reach the remote moorlands of Mt. Kenya, soar over Kenya’s vast plateaus and watch wildlife roam, hunt and bask beneath you, or visit the isolated and dramatic landscapes of Lake Turkana…

Palo Alto, California, USA

Possibly the best country in the world :). Most people know about its incredible fauna -- and are surprised to find a warm society, pristine beaches and even a snow capped mountain.

Nairobi, Kenya

The lure of Kenya has always been the same, the sheer variety of landscape, wildlife, human cultures and experience. No other African country can boast such diversity within its borders. Here you will find snow capped peaks and rolling savannah, pristine beaches and tropical rainforest, giant herds of elephants and flocks of flamingo, nomadic tribesmen and dhow sailors, and much, much more.


The serena hotel in nairobi is a very fantastic site, with a very fragrant arena with a wide parking, nice swimming pool and comfortable diining sets made from different woods and plastics.The splashing waterfall is so captivating as it flows down with pleasure pouring to a curved woman who is holdind a young baby, it symbolises the true ideal kenyan woman. As you sit on the balcony you can see for yourself the beautiful environment with all types of trees and flowers. Birds singing out their sweet voices to welcome the day. oh that was such a wonderful site to be.

Kenya is like a second home to me. I spent many months there. Never in a million years would I have expected to someday list Nairobi among my favorite cities, but somehow that happened. The country is gorgeous with so much to see in the wildlife department, in particular. Most people hit Mombasa and the Masai Mara and while those are great places, the country has so much more to offer. I love the people and the Kenyan attitude as well. There is a reason that this tends to be one of the go-to destinations in Africa.
