Rather than the typical jingle of sleighbells, listen out for the bodacious bellow of a camel or the reverberating rumble of a 4x4 creeping slowly towards camp, as Santa Klaus in Kenya arrives in excitingly unconventional style. Kenya Christmas holidays will make western celebrations seem exceedingly drab, as you settle into a safari lodge or beachside hotel strewn with vividly coloured balloons, paper garlands, bright flowers and green leaves. Whether you are keeping your eyes peeled for a leopard loitering in a towering tree in the Mara, or snorkelling along the Kenyan coast, make sure
to end your Christmas day with a traditional nyama choma (barbecue) of goat, chicken or beef, paired with heavenly home-brewed beer and raise a glass to cheers to a Merry Christmas, Krismasi njema (Swahili) or nchipai e Kirismas (Masai). Sing, dance and party with locals until Boxing Day is signalled by the sun’s golden glow, readying you for another day of adventures.

James - thank you. We had a truly wonderful and memorable trip. Everything that Original Travel had a hand in was perfect. Our time at Lewa was perfect and Sirikoi is very special. Sarara was also great and we loved the Samburu experience. Kinondo Kwetu is also a special place. I was not expecting the food to be a highlight, but it was a revelation. We will go back to Kenya. We will go back to Sirikoi. We will probably go back to Sarara. We are properly happy punters. James and Team – thank you.
