Kenya package holidays are a great way to experience all that Kenya has to offer. From Big-Five safaris, private off-the-beaten path journeys, African culture, relaxing beach holidays to mountain trekking adventures.
The idea of a package holiday is that you don’t need to spend so much time researching flights, hotels and travel around the country, as all this is “packaged” together in your deal. You spend time choosing and then enjoying your holiday, rather than researching the many choices in a country as varied as Kenya.
Kenya has been immortalised as the home of the safari tradition by personalities such as Karen Blixen and Ernest Hemingway and captured beautifully in classic films like Out of Africa and Born Free.
Visitors can witness the great wildebeest migration between July and October as over a million wildebeest, zebra and other plain game trek from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania to Kenya’s Masai Mara and back again. Endowed with such a constructive climate – sunny for most of the year and moderately wet, Kenya is a year-round destination.
Most Kenya package holidays start in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya and the coastal town of Mombasa. Nairobi receives many flights from the UK, Europe, Asia, Middle East and beyond.
The Kenya holiday packages here feature both group tours with fixed departure days and private tours. They can all be easily booked online.
