Why Kenya?

The ancestral home of the safari and the “Big Five”.

Lion, cheetah and leopard hungrily lurk among grasslands spying on prey, the vibrant color and culture of traditional nomadic peoples, huge herds of wildebeest gathering along the Mara River for the great migration and acacia trees silhouetted against the savanna at sunset. Along with the Great Rift Valley, its snow-capped mountains, and some of the highest concentrations of the Big Five in Africa, Kenya really does offer the quintessential safari.

WildlifeThe great wildebeest migration stampedes across the plateau, elephants meander along their migratory paths and giraffe stretch their necks to reach the tastiest leaves at the tops of trees. Lions laze in the shade waiting for their next meal as zebra and antelope innocently graze on the grasses of the sweeping plains.

Breathtaking Landscapes Vibrant orange-pink sunsets over the plains, vast savannahs peppered with immense herds of wildlife, harsh deserts, the mountainous Great Rift Valley, night skies sprinkled with a thousand stars and epic landforms that make for a photographer’s dream.

Conservation Focus – Pioneering the use of armed rangers to protect elephants and rhinos, Kenya has also developed many orphanages and rehabilitation reserves across the country. It has a proud stronghold in protecting its wildlife and this is the reason we are able to enjoy such a plethora of animals here.

Captivating Cultures The Maasai warriors, known for their nomadic lifestyle in some of the harshest conditions on earth, are sure to captivate you with their traditional dress, their enormous hardiness and their hearts.

Luxury lodges, fine dining and wine at its best – In Kenya, your lodge is just as important as your daily activities. A place to wind down each evening after an eventful and exciting day. Think sumptuous lodges and remote tented camps, dining under the stars whilst being impeccably serviced by fantastic staff with incredible attention to detail. We can arrange for you to ‘sleep out’ under the stars, or simply sit by the campfire sharing stories of the adventures you had that day. Perhaps end your trip in Nairobi at the famous Giraffe Manor, where you can have breakfast with the giraffes!

Where to Go?

Masai Mara National Reserve The Masai Mara is one of the most popular reserves in the whole of Africa. Its big skies, rolling savannahs, annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra, the sheer density of other game and predators and the tall red-robed Maasai people all combine to preserve its unforgettable magic.

Samburu National Park Situated on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River, Samburu boasts plentiful wildlife and the bird watching here is exceptionally good. The Samburu culture is also a very prominent part of the experience in the National Park. Samburu are closely related to the Maasai of East Africa and are semi-nomadic pastoralists.

Nairobi Nairobi is an energetic, busy and modern city. An easy day excursion before your afternoon flight home includes the opportunity to get up close to the orphaned elephants of Daphne Sheldrick Foundation, the Rothschild Giraffes at the giraffe center and a visit to the Karen Blixen museum (author of the book ‘Out of Africa).

 

When to Go?

Weather in Kenya can vary through the months. Please talk to us, and we can give you our recommendations on the best time to travel, based on your safari itinerary. Wildlife viewing is good year-round, but can differ between parks.

July – October: Peak season for travelers. This is the dry season and when the wildebeest migrations cross the Mara River. Wildlife is at its most active.

Mid December – mid March: Second dry season and a good time to travel.

November, April – May: November is the short rainy season and April/May the long rainy season, when some camps may close.

 

Logistics

At Rothschild Safaris, we believe that the design of your trip is very important. We put great time and care in to the order and logistics of your you travel. A typical transit day on safari might include a game drive in the morning followed by a mid-morning shared scenic charter flight, arriving at your next camp in time for lunch and an afternoon game drive. We are prepared with expert advice and first-hand experience on the most comfortable and convenient way to travel between locations, so that you have minimum stress and maximum time on the ground.
