Kenya is the classic safari destination that is home to some of the densest wildlife populations in Africa. The iconic Great Migration occurs here from July through to October. This incredible country has a huge amount to offer from savannahs teeming with game to the beautiful beaches of the Kenyan coast and the snow capped Mount Kenya down to the Great Rift Valley and the central highlands. The Masaai Mara has been the location of numerous wildlife documentaries and is known for its huge quantities of big cats and the wide-open plains, with wildebeest and zebra dotted over the grasslands. Head up to northern Kenya for a more exclusive safari experience and some of the most beautiful scenery in Africa. Once you have had your fill of safari, you can then fly straight to the Kenyan coast for some serious R&R. With both British Airways and Kenyan Airways offering direct flights to Nairobi, from London, your travel should be trouble-free and you can head straight off onto safari as soon as you touch down in Africa.
