The true way of unwinding your safari in Kenya is to end it in Mombasa, here the wilderness meets the sea. The true heart of Mombasa is found in the exotic old town, among the narrow winding streets and Arab architecture. The air here is always heavy with the scent of spices. Women wearing the traditional bui bui fill the narrow streets and busy markets. At the dhow docks fresh fish and goods from all along the coast arrive daily. The streets are alive with the bright colours of the traditional coastal khanga and kikoy, the all purpose wrap around cloth worn by both men and women. At the waters edge is Fort Jesus, an imposing fort that stands watch over the harbor. Mombasa is a place where both history and progress are greatly valued, where a busy harbor existence is lived at its own unique, tropical pace.
The coastline south of Mombasa is a tropical paradise of palm fringed white sand beaches, where the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean meet beautiful coral reefs. The protective reefs have created ideal beaches with calm, inviting waters. Days are filled with sunshine and nights are balmy and warm with gentle sea breezes. The offshore reefs are alive with coral, myriad fish, sea turtles and dolphins. Whether you are looking for a base to actively explore this fascinating region, or just somewhere to unwind and find peace, Kenya’s south coast has everything you could wish for.
A wide range of World Class resorts, centred around Diani Beach allow visitors to relax and enjoy this natural paradise with the best standards of accommodation, service and cuisine.The south coast also has many smaller quiet getaways such as Tiwi Beach, ideal for travellers looking for a low key break. Inland, the fertile hinterland of Kwale District consists of small villages inhabited by the Wakamba, Digo and Duruma tribes and you have endless opportunities of visisting their homesteads and learning their culture, taking pictures, dances,Traditional lectures and learning their way of life.
While staying in Mombasa, you have many options of doing side trips, which includes the popular and near by Shimba Hills National Reserve. The reserve is made up of both open grassland and dense rainforest, all with stunning views across the Indian Ocean. The Reserve has a variety of species including Elephant, Giraffe and Buffalo as well as the rare Roan and Sable antelope. The forests are home to a number of unusual species including the Black and White Colobus, Serval cats, Red Duiker and Suni Antelope. An abundance of birdlife lives is found among the hills, including Honey guides, Turacos, woodpeckers and Sunbirds. The Shimba Hills are a natural and peaceful haven, easily accessed from the beaches of the Kenyan coast.

The boundless wilderness, wildlife and big game of this region has long attracted adventure seekers from all over the world. I believe no other African country can boast such an incredible range of landscapes, unique geographical features and species.
Kenya offers the visitor a chance to experience a natural world unchanged by the passage of time. The Kenyan wildlife and wilderness is home to an endless array of ecosystems, the staging ground for natural cycles of life, death and regeneration as old as the planet itself.
This great range of natural habitats means that there is plenty to explore, and plenty of species to encounter face to face.
This is a land of endless potential for the wildlife enthusiast. From great migratory herds of the open savannah to an incredible abundance of birdlife, from the depths of a tropical rainforest to the depths of the Indian Ocean teeming with fish, this a world of natural wonders. A safari into the wilds of Kenya is a journey into nature at its purest. Everywhere you look there is a profusion of life…
Take a Wildlife safari through Kenya with the follwing in mind
- Track the mighty great Migration of wildebeests and Zebra’s or track the great predators through pure, unspoilt wilderness.
- Dive into a world of undersea wonder or step back from the beach and discover a hidden paradise of coastal forests and the swahili culture
- Trek into forests alive with wildlife, from the treetops to the forest floor among them the Tropical rain forests of western Kenya.
- In these high wild regions, the forests offer sanctuary for big game, and the thermal currents offer birdlife and butterflies freedom to fly.
- Flocks of flamingo to hippo hideaways, each of the Rift Valley lakes is a unique natural world fresh water and shallow alkaline lakes.
- The Northern Frontier of Kenya is a place of vast, unspoilt wilderness and has UNIQUE wildlife like the Long-necked Gerenuk (meaning ‘giraffe neck’), a graceful antelope that stands upright on its hind legs to feed on tall bushes which is among the Samburu’s “Special Five” – (the reticulated giraffe, longnecked gerenuk, Somali ostrich, Grevy’s zebra and beisa oryx ) never found anywhere else
- Where else in the world can you find lions, rhino, and more living free and wild within sight of a city skyline that is Nairobi National park
My family and I spend this year’s Easter holiday in Samburu game and we had what I can simply describe as a wonderful time. We saw Samburu special and meals at our tented camp were sumptuous and the waiters were friendly and down to earth.
Ranging across the great Northern plains and ranges south of Lake Turkana, the Samburu are a people both proud and protective of their culture and the ancestral lands to which it binds them. The Samburu have formed an unlikely cultural bond with another tribe of desert nomads, the Rendille. Most safaris and treks through this region will pass through Samburu lands. It is well worth spending some time learning more about the Samburu and their culture. The best way to do this is to take a camel or walking safari with a local Samburu guide, or to stay in a lodge or camp managed by a Samburu community. More recently, the Samburu have began herding camels and using them as pack animals. The art of camel husbandry was probably acquired from their close relationship with the Rendille and Turkana peoples of the Northern frontier deserts. Their homesteads, ‘Manyattas’ are usually a circular encampment of long, low, rounded houses, created by daubing cattle dung over a framework of sticks.
In recent years, the distinctive Maasai beading and decorative jewellrey have become a fashion item in the West, and remain one of the most popular items taken home by visitors to Kenya. So popular has Maasai beading become that many modern functional items, including watchstraps, belts, handbags and even mobile phone covers are being produced in Maasai designs. The Maasai are indeed a truly independent and proud with a culture more complex and interesting than popular imagination would suggest. They once ranged widely across much of Southern and Central Kenya, extending north to Laikipia, and South across the border into Tanzania. Today most of the Maasai population lives throughout the South West of the country.
Cattle are very important to the Maasai, and are the subject of mystical beliefs and reverence. Maasai mythology tells of a time when the earth and sky were joined together, until they were suddenly torn apart, with only the wild fig trees left as bridges between the two. As a gift to the Maasai, god – called Enkai sent herds of cattle down through these trees to earth. To the Maasai cattle are sacred and a direct gift from the heavens. Grass is also considered a blessing and sacred. When passing a fig tree, it is customary for the Maasai to push handfuls of grass between the roots, as homage to the source of their herds. One of the more common Maasai greetings is “I hope your cattle are well”.

With eleven percent of the world’s species – some 1089 different varieties, Kenya’s birding is one of the best in the world. It very usual for birding trips to record 300-600 different varieties on a short trip or to record more than 120 at a particular site on a single day! The variety of birds in Kenya is made possible by the favourable climate, diverse habitats and geographical features that make it a suitable migratory route for birds. Even in Nairobi you are guaranteed to find birds everywhere you travel. A stroll in hotel gardens, a trip to the Nairobi National Park or the grounds of the National Museum is likely to turn up bright black and yellow weavers, tiny iridescent sunbirds resembling flying jewels, Secretary Bird, Bustards and Mousebirds with long tails, which are unique to Africa.
Naturalist guides are available at numerous of sites and are your best aid for locating and identifying the many species. They live at or near these sites and their birding interest is nurtured by that association with visiting scientists, birders and added to by some formal training. It is advisable to contact the local guides association if you will be spending time at a specific site.
