Join us on a Kenya safari holiday

Vast, stunning, diverse: Kenya safaris with Newmarket Holidays deliver a slice of the wild – alongside a big chunk of comfort.

This means you can be rugged and intrepid on a Kenyan grand safari, knowing later you’ll be in your luxury accommodation watching animals quench their thirst. If you want, you can combine a safari holiday with a beach holiday and spend some time by the cerulean Indian Ocean.

Once you’re on your Kenya safari holiday it’s easy to see why this African nation captures the imagination of so many. Not only is it home to some of the most incredible landscapes on earth, but the massive array of wildlife you’ll get the chance to see (and occasionally interact with) is nothing short of breathtaking. 

There are a fair few different spots that you can head to with a Kenya safari package, from the otherworldly lava flows of Tsavo West National Park to the beautiful plains and hills of the Masai Mara. And that’s not mentioning the stunning game reserves that sit just outside of major population centres like Nairobi and Mombasa, as well as the buzzing cities themselves, full of cultural highlights and some of the most incredible street food you’ll ever have the opportunity to sample. Safari holidays in Kenya really do have it all.

Things to see on a Kenya safari holiday

There’s no doubt that Kenya safari holidays are magical experiences all round, whether you’re lucky enough to catch  the thundering great migration of wildebeests in Masai Mara, or you get up close and personal with crocodiles and hippos in Tsavo West. Even your kenya safari lodges can form a part of your sightseeing, with some luxury accommodation overlooking watering holes, allowing you to watch animals congregate while you’re in complete comfort. And then there’s the awe-inspiring landscapes, thriving cities, and idyllic beaches. Kenya is truly an astounding nation, jam-packed with unbelievable things to see.

Where to go on a Kenya Safari Holiday

Frequently asked Kenya safari questions

Here are a few questions you might have.

  • While on safari in Kenya you should wear long, loose clothing  that will both keep you cool and protect you from the sun. Make sure to bring bug spray too!

  • The best time for a Kenya safari is September as then you’ll have the opportunity to see the surging migration of the wildebeests in the country’s south. However, any time from June until October works well, as that’s when it’s a bit drier and animals congregate more.

  • Kenya is an excellent place for your first safari as the infrastructure is well honed, and it has all the animals you’d want to see, including the Big 5.

  • That really depends on you! We’d recommend at least five days for the actual safari element, if not more as there is so much to see and do. If you’re staying on the beach in Mombasa we think at least three days will help you to really unwind. And while Nairobi has plenty to see and do, three days is enough to get in the highlights.

  • It’s hard to say what the best safari in Kenya is as they all have their perks – even the Nairobi National Park, which is much smaller than most but iconic for its cityscape backdrop. With that said, Masai Mara and Tsavo West are two of the most popular and busy reserves for a good reason.
