Welcome to Kenya! Karibuni Kenya!

Kenya – the legendary country that inspired Karen von Blixen to write Out of Africa. Its wildlife has been immortalised in Born Free, The Ghost and the Darkness and many more Hollywood epics. The coastal resorts, once the playground of Hemmingway, still boast of the best fishing grounds in the world. The magic of Kenya remains today.

Kenya is a country on the eastern coast of Africa, right on the equator. It is a land of striking landscapes, ranging from snowcapped Mount Kenya to rich farmlands, barren deserts and tropical forests. In the east its border is the warm Indian Ocean, with a multitude of luxurious beach resorts. Access to the southern beaches is via Mombasa and Ukunda, and to the central beaches is via Malindi and Lamu. These waters are famed fishing grounds and also offer excellent scuba diving. In the south, Kenya borders on Tanzania with Mt Kilimanjaro being a famous landmark, as well as the Masai Mara. The northern region is dry and arid, while the west is characterised by the lush Great Rift Valley with its many lakes. Almost one third of Kenya is under wildlife management.

Weather - The rainy season of April/May is best avoided. Otherwise, travel is pleasant all year round.

Unique experience – The vast plains of East Africa (Kenya’s Masai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti) play host to the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle – the great Wildebeest Migration.  Without dressing anything else up, the great animal migration is one of the most unique experiences that a person will ever have! In most travel guides, articles and books, seeing the Wildebeest Migration is listed as one of the top things to put on your bucket list – why not put it on yours!

Masai Mara - Wildebeest Migration Special

Experience one of the natural wonders of the world - the Great Wildebeest Migration! Three night fly-in safari with optional Hot Air Balloon safari over the migrating animals. After the rains when the first flush of grass turns the Masai Mara’s golden savannah green, the most mesmerising wildlife spectacle anywhere takes place here: The Great Wildebeest Migration. Between the months of July and October one and a half million wildebeest, accompanied by vast numbers of zebra and gazelles make the long and dangerous trek from drier lands in Tanzania, northwards to this corner of Kenya. Lines of animals stretch as far as the eye can see across the plains. It is a time of plenty. But it is a time too when the predators are drawn from all around. High above on the hot winds the carrion birds, the vultures and eagles, soar. In the long grasses lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena prowl. Most dramatic of all is the moment when the migration arrives at the Mara River. They must cross it to reach the rich grazing. As the animals throng, crocodiles cruise the waters. Then the bravest takes the plunge into the swirling currents and thousands follow. Governors’ Camps are ideally placed to let you to be at the heart of the Great Wildebeest Migration.The setting is magical. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River in the west of the Masai Mara, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Some of the tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets.
