KENYA DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Kenya in a way like no other. Kenya is quintessential Africa, from the ancient Maasai tribes, to the open savannahs home to great migrations and Africa’s Big Five. The landscapes are iconic, with lone acacia trees silhouetted against blazing red sunsets, and the Great Rift Valley cracking through the continent. Dripping jungles give way to palm-fringed beaches, and you can go from snowy mountains to vast deserts in a day. Our Kenya travel experiences are filled with pinch-me moments, from seeing the spectacular pink flamingos in Lake Nakuru, to watching hippos rolling in a watering hole near your lodge in the Maasai Mara. It’s one of the best countries in Africa to see wildlife, thanks to pioneering conservation initiatives, and we’ll also get to the heart of Kenya’s communities. Meet local farmers at a coffee plantation and sample their delicious brews, and visit a Maasai village where you’ll watch the traditional jumping dance of the Maasai warriors. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
