Craig's Top Tips

  1. If you want to get close to baby elephants and help with a worthwhile cause at the same time, then without doubt the best place is The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust based in Nairobi National Park, Kenya.
  2. For big cat adventures, follow in the footsteps of Jonathon Scott, as he presented the beloved BBC Big Cat Diary series following the lives of the Marsh Pride lion family across the Mara, from his base at Governors’ Camp – a luxury tented accommodation we use today.
  3. Our Out of Africa Luxury Safari is great for first-time visitors, as you’ll see three different areas of Kenya. This holiday is wildlife focused and aims to maximise your chances of spotting big game, while returning to fantastic accommodation each night.

Why visit Kenya?

Many travellers head to Kenya for incredible safari opportunities. With a number of National Parks and nature reserves, many of which have appeared in documentaries, you can learn first-hand about invaluable conservation efforts. The landscape is also unbelievable, from acacia woodland to arid thornbush scrubland and sweeping plains. Along with witnessing natural beauty, you can visit the Masai people in a traditional village to learn more about their lives and culture.

Most Kenya holidays are inspired by the country’s incredible collection of wildlife. Learn how to track a lioness and her cubs with a local guide, join ex-poachers to visit the now protected white rhino or have BBC photographers show you how to take the perfect picture of an elephant herd. In the famous Masai Mara, find buffalo rumbling across the plains or search for cheetahs peeking from the long grass. You can also meet the Masai people, and in their traditional villages and cow-dung built huts soak up the music and movement of this ancient people.

The only thing as memorable as a Kenyan safari is a Kenyan landscape. Step from your tent to see the early morning mist clear and a lone acacia tree that has become synonymous with the plains of Africa come into view. In the heart of the county, stay at award winning game lodges in Samburu and Shaba national parks, before exploring Buffalo Springs where the roaring Ewaso Nyiro River provides a burst of green against this parched frontier land. Marvel at the Great Rift Valley, which once threatened to tear the African continent apart, as you hike this dramatic gorge, before reflecting on your African adventure on the east coast with your toes in the warm Indian Ocean.

If this is your family holiday of a lifetime then the Trunks & Turtles Kenya family safari and beach is the ideal choice. It combines the thrills of the safari – including a special children’s safari in the mighty Masai Mara with a relaxing beach break in one of the country’s finest beach destinations, Watamu. If adventure in the wilderness is on your radar then opt for Kenya’s Big Game Riding Safari. Visit some of the lesser-known spots, including the national park surrounding Nairobi where you can spend a morning in the company of orphaned baby elephants before heading out on a private game drive. Traditional tented accommodation is offered to ensure you are never far from nature.
