Kenya

Kenya, the original safari destination, is the best place on earth to see African wildlife, and we combine this with relaxing on the beach by the Indian Ocean.

Our Kenyan based host and camp staff will make sure you get the best experience on your holiday sharing their knowledge of the animals and their natural environment. After flying to Nairobi and then to Mombassa you will have some “down time” staying at Papillon Lagoon Reef hotel at Diani beach before your safari experience commences. Expect to see buffalo, elephants, crocodiles and much more! Your adventure includes staying at the Voyager Ziawani tented camp and Ngutuni Lodge before returning to Papillon to relax before journeying home. A visa is required which needs to be purchased online.

Location

Nairobi is an eight and a half hour flight from Heathrow, with Mombasa an easy one hour flight from Nairobi. Kenya is only two hours ahead of the UK.  Being close to the equator, there’s little difference between winter and summer temperatures. Tsavo national parks are at a higher altitude so a little cooler.
