Join us on a holiday to Kenya

Feast your eyes on Kenya’s wild savannahs, golden plains, flamingo-pink lakes and breath-taking natural beauty. Discover Africa’s safari capital and be at one with nature on your holiday to Kenya.

Witness the Maasai Mara wildebeest migration and hear elephants trumpet and lions roar across the savanna on your search of the Big Five. Go on the lookout for the blue-legged Somali ostrich and the giraffe-necked gerenuk gazelle in the north’s rugged Samburu landscape. Keep an eye out for grazing black and white rhinos, Rothschild giraffes and marvel at the powder-pink flamingos on the picturesque shores of Nakuru’s soda lake.

Encounter nature at its best and take in one of the world’s most famous waterfalls, the Thompson Falls in historic Nyahururu. Enveloped in a dense forest on the fringes of Mt Kenya and the Great Rift Valley, the water fall is a site to behold.

Make like royalty on your Kenyan safari holiday and stay at famous the Treetops in the mountainous Aberdare National Park. Feel the warm welcome of the Maasai people, and discover their rich cultural heritage that extends down centuries. Admire their brightly-coloured outfits and watch the traditional jumping dance as you experience the authentic life and culture of the modern yet traditional Maasai people on one of our escorted holiday tours to Kenya.

Visit the Maasai markets and taste the wonderful street food in Nairobi – Kenya’s concrete jungle that contrasts the wild natural beauty to be found elsewhere in the country.

From city to savannahs, your Newmarket holiday to Kenya is one you’ll cherish forever.

  • British nationals travelling to Kenya will need a visa to enter the country. You can acquire a visa before you travel, or upon arrival. Your passport should be valid for a minimum of six months from the date of your arrival. 

  • In Kenya they use the Kenyan Shilling, which is abbreviated to KES. US dollars are also widely accepted. For the latest exchange rates, please see www.xe.com.

  • Kenya can be an expensive country to visit, although you can save money by booking an escorted tour, which includes flights, transfers, accommodation, activities and some meals.  

  • Kenya’s dry season runs from July to September, and coincides with the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra, making it a popular time to travel. The rainy season follows, and is also a popular time to visit, particularly in December, as there are fewer visitors and the countryside is lush and verdant. March, April and May are known for their ‘long rains’ and can be very wet. 

  • Home to great savannahs and sweeping lakes, including the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli National Park, Kenya is famous for its fantastic wildlife and safaris. Capital city Nairobi is also a popular destination, boasting many cultural attractions.

  • Food varies in Kenya by region and community. However, generally speaking they eat a lot of fresh vegetables, especially beans, corn and kale. Rice is a staple in Kenya, as are chapatis, an Indian-style flatbread. Various barbecued meats, stews and curries are also popular dishes.  

  • Kenya has two official languages: Bantu Swahili and English.
