Italy 2024: Call Judy & Tom to book exceptional houses.
Home of the safari.
Kenya beckons the traveller with a magical mix of incredible wildlife, rich cultural heritage, palm-fringed beaches and coastal towns steeped in Swahili history.
Few places can rival Kenya for the safari experience, and few sights are more impressive than the Great Migration, the annual movement of more than two million wildebeest, zebra and other grazing herbivores across the fertile grasslands of the Masai Mara.
Many Kenyaphiles, however, eschew the tourist-laden parks of the Mara in favour of Laikipia, which lies north beyond Nairobi in the shadow of Mt Kenya.
It’s here that some of the most effective conservation work in the country is being done, with Laikipia’s vast plains home to some of Kenya’s highest populations of endangered species, including African wild dogs, black rhinos and Grevy’s zebras.
Then, once you’ve finally had your fill of tracking rhino on foot and galloping on horseback beside herds of giraffe, you can relax for a few days on the islands of Lamu, famed for their beaches and traditional Swahili culture.
We’ve wonderful houses in both Laikipia and Lamu, so call us today about how to combine the two.
