From magical Big Game safaris to snow-capped mountains, idyllic beaches and fascinating cities, the possibilities are endless on a hotel break in Kenya.
Its name synonymous with the romance and mystery of Africa, Kenya offers some of the world’s finest safari destinations, such as the Masai Mara, Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks, where visitors can marvel at the legendary Big Five game animals, as well as other remarkable fauna and flora. There are also fantastic coastal destinations to enjoy on a hotel break in Kenya, from the hugely popular, beautiful Diani Beach to the secluded Vipingo Beach and the laid-back Nyali Beach at Mombasa. A historic port town, Mombasa offers visitors the chance to wander the spice markets, visit sights such as the 16th century Portuguese Fort Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or try their hand at a range of water sports. Meanwhile, the capital city Nairobi, nicknamed ‘the safari capital of the world’, is a bustling, multicultural metropolis with excellent museums, fine restaurants and a vibrant live music scene, as well as the Nairobi National Park, a unique attraction where visitors can see wild animals (including giraffes, black rhino, lions and leopards) just 8 km from the city centre. To the northeast, the UNESCO-protected Old Town on the island of Lamu is one of East Africa’s best-preserved Swahili settlements, with a range of architectural styles - from Arab and Indian to European - reflecting this nautical region’s international history.
