When most people envision Africa, they are likely picturing the landscapes of Kenya. Located near the equator, Kenya offers plains teeming with game, cultures as old as time and unchanged by the modern world, and vast African horizons stretching into eternity.
Embarking on a Kenya luxury safari reveals the some of the most timeless treasures of this storied country—a land of exquisite diversity and wildlife. It begins with a luxury Ker & Downey safari through the Masai Mara, where the indigenous Maasai people are steeped in their rich traditions and celebrations and troves of wildebeests and zebras migrate in their millions, the great predators following in their wake. Of all of Kenya’s wonders these two icons stand as the most iconic: the tall and slender semi-nomadic Masai tribes clothed in vivid shades of red and blue standing nobly against the stark landscape and the sheer magnitude of The Great Migration crossing the acacia-dotted plains, a sight that no camera could ever do justice.
Kenya is also home to Amboseli and the giant elephant families roaming through the shadows of Mt. Kilimanjaro. It boasts vast stretches of savannah plains dotted in singular acacia trees, and it clings tightly to the Great Rift Valley and the pink flamingos that flock to its many lakes. To the southeast, Kenya’s palm-fringed coastline along the Indian Ocean is an unsung paradise starkly contrasting the game rich plains, while Hemingway’s beloved “Green Hills of Africa,” extend through the volcanic craters of Chyulu Hills.
