Beautiful Holidays Specialists

If you’d love to go to Africa but are slightly nervous, Kenya is a great place to start. You can easily book packages to all-inclusive resorts on the coast, as well as safari tours on the plains, and mix your experiences of wild animals and tribal dances with rounds of golf and spa treatments. Some of the best game reserves in Africa are in Kenya; if you visit at the right time, you’ll see the famous wildebeest migration across the plains. But Kenya isn’t all about wildlife, or contained package resorts. Backpackers will be interested to know that the cities have with plenty of sights and excellent restaurants and nightlife.

Some of Africa’s most famous game reserves are in Kenya, including the Masai Mara Reserve. As well as a popular place to find big cats, you should drop in on the Masai Mara themselves – villages will arrange tribal dances and sell curios to visitors. If you visit at the right time of year, you can witness the amazing spectacle of thousands of animals migrating across the plains.

Kenya Holidays Guide


Mombasa is the main port of entry for many visitors heading to the coast. Mombasa has a fort, Hindu temples, and you can arrange a cruise on a dhow. Mombasa also has a pumping nightlife. If you’re staying within the tourist centres and don’t want to hire a car, then your tour company will be able to arrange trips and excursions – although, as ever, try to make sure your spending supports the locals and cuts out the middle-men. If you’re a backpacker, you may enjoy getting off the beaten track – the north of the country sees few tourists, and you can make a trip to one of the lesser-visited game reserves.
