An Introduction to Kenya Wildlife Safaris

Sometimes called the cradle of mankind and yet referred to as the whole of Africa in one, Kenya has been simply summed up as magical Kenya.  Kenya is the home of the word safari, meaning an adventure into the wild or unknown.  Did you  dream of exclusivity, once in a lifetime safari experience in  ultimate luxury?  Gorilla Safaris Rwanda interprets it in one word=KENYA.

And it is truly magical.   The magic is captured by its diversity and contrasts.  The single entity Kenya comprises of multiplicity of tribes (more than 40) all with diverse cultural backgrounds.  Each of these tribes is culturally diverse in terms of cuisine, history, language and even location.   Our Kenya wildlife safaris will include a visit to any of these tribes along the route.   Any safari to Kenya would not be complete without visiting the tribesmen.

Tourism activities are distributed through out the country.  However high densities are concentrated in the Mara, Coast and Laikipia.  Laikipia and Samburu are a rich man's country.  In this region are famous reserves of buffalo springs, Shaba and Samburu.  In addition to these are private ranches whose luxury is beyond belief.  A major plus of this region is the Sweet Waters Chimpanzee Sanctuary.  In addition to this, Laikipia is the breeding ground of the Kenya's Rhino population.  In Laikipia we have horse riding, lion tracking, Rhino tracking, camel riding, night game drives, visits to cultural bomas etc.  Laikipia is also the home of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (Lewa Downs)  the hideout of Prince William.  It is at Lewa he proposed to Kate Middleton.

Climate:  The climate varies from the hot dry semi arid climate of the North and North Eastern Kenya to the temperate climate of the highlands.  The costal region experiences hot and humid equatorial. The landscape is diverse giving the country a multiplicity of habitats and hence the best wildlife sighting anywhere in the world. 

The large expanse of open savannah makes it easy for visitors to spot birds and animals. 

The Kenya coast is full of adventure. The endless sun drenched white sandy beaches of the coast, the colourful marine fishes makes it a holiday paradise.  Besides these are colourful markets, historical sites and numerous cultural villages to visit.  The coast of Kenya is dominated by the Mijikenda people with their nine subgroups of Giriama, Digo, Ribe, Kambe, Rabai, Chonyi, Jubana, Duruma and the Kauma.  Also found at the coast are the Amu of Lamu, the Pokomo and the Swahili.  Big game fishing, parasailing/ gliding, water skiing, swimming and other water activities are in abundant. If adventure is not your take, you can spend the day sunbathing or reading at the beach.Numerous tourist activities are available in  Mombasa /Malindi/Lamu
