Lying on the east coast of Africa is Kenya, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Discover timeless cultures unchanged by the modern world, savannahs rich with big game, mighty snow-capped mountains and equatorial forests, pristine beaches and coral reef, searing deserts and cool highland retreats. No holiday in Kenya would be complete without a safari in search of the Big 5 – lions, elephants, leopards, rhino and wildebeest – and you might catch sight of giraffes, crocodiles, ostriches and zebras too. Malindi, Diani and Mombasa are the most popular coastal holiday resorts - Malindi offers a selection of Italian-style boutiques while Diani is full of upmarket shops, local crafts and souvenirs. The historical city of Mombasa has a busy port and a maze of narrow streets to explore. Nairobi, Kenya’s capital is a thriving modern city and gateway to the Nairobi National Park. Whether you’re looking for a beach holiday or a safari break then a holiday in Kenya is the perfect choice for you.
Holidays in Kenya offer you a mixture of beach life, city life and access to stunning countryside and wildlife all in one country. Dont miss the cultural hotspots of Nairobi and Mombassa City. Have your own Out of Africa experience with a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum on the outskirts of Nairobi. Visit a Masai village. Take a balloon safari over the Masai Mara. Enjoy game drives on a Big 5 safari.
Kenyan cuisine centres around meat and freshly caught seafood with sea bream and red snapper putting in an appearance on menus too. From roadside stalls serving grilled corn on the cob and rump steak cooked fresh on the open charcoal fires to fine dining restaurants in Nairobi and Mombassa and in the hotels around Diani and Malindi you won't go hungry.
