This is the Africa of our dreams: luxury Kenya safari holidays with views to snow-capped mountains rising from the dry khaki plains, and the golden savannah teeming with wildlife. Kenya delights, seduces and bewitches even the most experienced of travellers.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve is renowned as a Kenyan safari destination. Home to the Big Five, the reserve is also the stage for nature's most remarkable spectacle: the Great Migration. Annually, from July to October, one million wildebeest, Thomson gazelle, 300,000 Grévy zebra, and other game migrate 1,600 kilometres to and from the Serengeti, with predators lying in wait.
Few experiences can compare to the magnitude and drama of watching millions of animals crashing across the racing Mara River. We have luxury safari lodges and camps in Kenya with ringside seats. Beyond the Mara are many other reserves (Laikipia, Samburu, Amboseli, and Lewa) where you can walk with Samburu tribesmen, helicopter to the rim of Silale Crater or the top of Ol Lolokwe mountain, and see the red elephants of Tsavo.
Kenya's beauty is only matched by the diversity of its people. The Kikuyu, the Swahili, the Turkana, and, of course, the Maasai and Samburu each have a deep heritage, tradition, and history that defines the country’s rich and complex culture. Whatever draws you to Kenya safari holidays—a classic honeymoon, a riding safari, a private house for a special family occasion, or an exhilarating helicopter safari—Creed Solutions can arrange it just for you.
The Masai Mara National Reserve, a never-ending swath of sunbaked grassland, should not be missed on any trip to Kenya. Approximately two million wildebeests, zebras, topis, and stampedes from the Serengeti during the famous Great Migration, which culminates here between July and October. In addition to its most well-known attraction, the Masai Mara is home to the planet’s largest concentration of lions, who prowl the grasses alongside giraffes, impala, elephants, and countless other animals in this breathtaking wilderness.
One of Kenya’s great success stories is the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which is located in the slopes of Mount Kenya. In 1983, the number of rhinos in Lewa was at a critical 15 because of poaching. In the secure savannah the conservancy has established, more than 160 white and black rhinos are now thriving. For wildlife, it is on par with the Masai Mara, and its rangers will take you on safari drives so you can get up close and personal with its well-known inhabitants. Grevy’s zebras, cheetahs, hyenas, and the “Big Five” (elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, and rhino) all make this sanctuary home, so it’s not just rhinos who have benefited from Lewa’s excellent work.
Look no further than Laikipia for a taste of Africa. Although it has wildlife that can compete with any other place in the nation, like Grevy’s zebras and rhinos, this place is all about the experience. You may experience this old patchworked scenery of semi-arid plains and acacia-blanketed hills in great detail when you stay in colonial bush dwellings. The Samburu people, however, may be the real attraction in this area. These lodges serve as entranceways to their culture and traditions, where you can see warrior dances and expert bead makers at work.
This hidden national park has a new view around every corner, including riverine woods, lakes, cloud forests, and wide savannahs. The ancient lava flows that once surrounded the volcanic emerald contours that gave rise to the name Chyulu Hills have long ago cooled, yet they are nevertheless rich in folklore. Searching for leopards, elephants, and buffaloes in the wild while they are all being watched over by the legendary, steep slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro is a genuine adventure on safari game drives in these changeable landscapes.
Kenya’s coastline along the Indian Ocean is the best way to round off a trip filled with unforgettable safari experiences because it perfectly combines nature and history. Straight from the beach, snorkelers can explore the colorful coral reefs that line its flour-white curves, which are filled with tropical species. While its beaches now entice tourists, they previously attracted the Arab spice traders of old, whose influence can still be felt. There are numerous forts dotting the coastline, and you can still enjoy traditional dhow rides around the bay, which are significant to Swahili culture.
Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Polio and Tetanus-Diphtheria vaccinations are currently recommended. If entering Kenya from a yellow fever zone, you must be in possession of a valid international yellow fever inoculation certificate. Please consult your GP at least four to six weeks prior to travel for current advice and medical precautions regarding Malaria. You would also need Covid-19 vaccination card as well as a negative Covid-19 PCR test result not less than 72hours old.

Kenya’s diverse geography means that the weather varies widely, but generally the climate is warm and humid on the coast, temperate inland and very dry in the north and north-east.
The hot and dry weather experienced in January and February is great for wildlife watching before the long rains occur between March and early June, particularly in the Central Highlands and the Rift Valley. Wildlife is then harder to spot because of the heavy rain and mosquitoes but there are fewer vehicles in the conservancies and reserves and the accommodation is much quieter.
Once the rains disperse, wildlife becomes easier to see again. It’s the best time to stay in the Masai Mara, for between July and October the Great Migration sees over a million wildebeest arrive in the Mara from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
The short rains (when rainfall is less frequent and less intense) fall during October and December but wildlife watching is still good, migrating birds arrive and the land looks lush and green, making it an excellent time to go on a safari holiday.
