Warm and welcoming, Kenya is the place where the phrase ‘Hakuna Matata’ (no worries) originated and it embodies the national attitude; and smile is the most valuable currency. It is the uncontested “Safari Capital of the World” endowed with an incredibly unique biodiversity and climate, that range from tropical heat of glacial ice, that has formed a diversity of habitats found nowhere else on Earth. A mosaic of lion-gold savannah, rolling grassland, ancient rainforests and volcanic plains.
Moreover, Kenya is the only place where visitors can witness volcanic geysers that hurtle jets of boiling water into the air; stand beneath the plunging waterfall of the Aberdares, camel-trek across the painted desert of the arid north, drive through the teeming game of the vast savannah, witness the jumping maasai & samburu warriors, walk amidst clouds of butterflies in the last of the coastal rainforests, and lie beneath the palm trees of the idyllic Indian Ocean coastline.
Kenya is an equatorial country and the weather is generally good and pleasant all year round. February and March are the hottest months while the coldest are July and August. In the coastal region, the weather is generally humid with temperatures between 21 degrees celsius to 32 degrees celsius.
Although Kenya is relatively safe, there are certain part of the country just like any other country that is not safe, however our promise to our guests is that we’ll never take them to places that we feel is not safe and we may not want to visit ourselves. As a matter of fact, we only take our guests to destinations and experiences that we have tested and approve to be safe.
