Kenya holidays

Unforgettable wildlife experiences in the midst of iconic landscapes

Kenya has long been a safari favourite – home to some of the world’s most famous national parks and reserves, with rolling plains, great lakes and vast wildernesses, rich in African wildlife from big cats to even bigger elephants and rhino. And away from its destinations that top wildlife enthusiasts’ wish lists, it's blessed with a tropical coastline, where palm-fringed sands are lapped by clear waters.

  • One of the best places in the world to spot the Big Five: lion, rhino, elephant, Cape buffalo and leopard
  • The iconic Maasai Mara plays host to part of the annual Great Migration, hailed ‘the greatest wildlife show on earth’
  • All our overland safaris seat a maximum of 6 people so you'll be guaranteed a window seat
  • It’s not just about safari; Kenya also has a beautiful coastline perfect for a sunny escape
  • We’ve been offering luxury holidays here for a long time and have great relationships with some of Kenya’s most iconic hotels

Kuoni Insider

An essential item to catch all the breathtaking scenes on safari is a camera with large zoom. Not only will it capture special moments for you, such as a lion in pursuit of its prey, but it will help you to detect the carefully camouflaged cats. The guides are very good at pointing out the hidden wonders but it is not so easy to spot them with an unpractised eye!
