Kenya

Kenya’s endearing combination of fascinating wildlife, immaculate beaches and friendly locals make it the perfect destination for your dream holiday to Africa. Visitors can feel the powdery sand between their toes on one of the luxury resorts in Mombasa and swim in the refreshing waters of the Indian Ocean, whilst those looking for a more action-packed adventure can hike up the iconic Mount Kenya. Meanwhile, no visit to Kenya is complete without experiencing the thrill of spotting wild game in one of the country’s nature reserves.
