Lake Nakuru National Park

Flamingoes line the edge of Lake Nakuru for as far as the eye can see. This national park is also a great place to spot leopards — spot, get it? Within the Great Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru is the place for birdwatching and game drives.

Mombasa beach break

Yep, Kenya’s on the coast. And what a coast! End your safari holiday with a relaxing beach break at Mombasa.

Langata Giraffe Centre

Open: 9am-5pm every day

Tickets: KSh 1000 Adult


Lake Naivasha

Get out of the safari truck for a walking safari around Lake Naivasha or take a boat out among the hippos. Visit the Elsamere Conservation Centre — the former home of Born Free author Joy Adamson.


Hell’s Gate National Park

Just up the road from Lake Naivasha is the dramatic landscape of Hell’s Gate National Park. Walk or ride around the park to get up close to the wildlife.
