Kenya Safari and Beach

You’ll discover the arid Northern Landscapes of Kenya and experience the lush, green plains of the Mara before finishing on the white-sand beaches of the Swahili coast. Kenya offers fantastic game-viewing and, in our opinion, is the ultimate first time safari destination. Immersing yourself in tribal culture is also a fascinating experience. Let your Samburu and Masai guides show you the landscapes their ancestors called home and return with tales far deeper than just wildlife and vistas.

Trip Highlights
Big game viewing in the Mara
Fantastic Indian Ocean activities
Kick back and unwind on the beach
Samburu cultural experiences
When To Go
Jan - Apr, Jun - Dec
Ideal Length
1 week+, just about doable in 7 nights but we recommend longer to make the most of the safari

All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t

Kenya offers an authentic African experience. It’s an exciting game-viewing destination, but it also offers a chance to experience the ancient cultures that still practise many of their age-old traditions and customs today. Your Nemo guide will help you avoid the tourist traps and take you on a journey through the traditions of the region. Get ready to see the African bush through the eyes of the locals.

"Kenya is different. Yes, it has the amazing wildlife. Yes, it has the landscapes. Yes, it has the white sand beaches. Yes, it has the safaris and is re-inventing the modern safari today with its community-based conservationism. But, above all, it is has the people."
 
Riccardo Orizio, Saruni Lodges Owner
