Visit Kenya

Great for: Wildebeest Migration, year-round safaris, beach & bush

Kenya is the birthplace of safari. This East African destination offers excellent year-round game viewing in bucket-list destinations and secret spots. While the Great Wildebeest Migration river crossings are certainly a safari essential, less-frequented areas like the Mara triangle give steadfast travellers the opportunity to see a different side of the Pride of Africa.

There’s more to this stunning destination than migration safaris, though. Travellers can explore Kenya’s dazzling tropical coastline from one of its idyllic islands or beaches. Scuba diving, snorkelling and dhow cruises paired with trips to hidden safari gems like Samburu or Amboseli make for an incredible bush and beach getaway.
