Summer in Kenya

For a summer getaway with plenty of sizzle, head to Kenya, the perfect ‘bush and beach’ destination. Walk on the wild side in wildlife-heavy national parks and fall asleep to the sound of lions roaring in remote safari lodges and then head to the coast for balmy beach days and underwater adventures along the Kenyan Coast. Kenya summer holidays have it all.

Jam-packed with pinch-me moments, a summer getaway to Kenya is fabulous for families. Our team of Africa experts can point you in the direction of the best family-friendly lodges from sensational safari spots in the Masai Mara to our favourite beachfront resorts on the Kenyan Coast where we can arrange for the whole brood to swim with dolphins and snorkel over colourful coral reefs. Honeymooners too will fall head over heels for Kenya with its luxurious lodges and world-class guides who can take you out on private game drives and deep into the bush for candlelit dinners and sultry sundowners beside a crackling fire.

On your Kenya summer holidays, a safari adventure in the Masai Mara is an absolute must. We can arrange for you to bump across the bush on unforgettable night drives, watch the sunrise while tucking into a bush breakfast and learn about the park's wildlife - plus spot the Big 5 - while exploring with a knowledgeable local guide. For a completely different safari experience, head to Laikipia where you can swap traditional 4x4 drives for walking, horse riding and camel safaris and immerse yourself in the great outdoors while staying in fantastic fly camps.

After a sun-baked summer safari, cool off on the coast with watersports galore, from waterskiing and windsurfing, to swimming with dolphins, snorkelling, and diving over kaleidoscopic reefs. Relax away your days on the serene sandy beaches on the Lamu archipelago and discover dreamy dive spots in the Watamu region. Barefoot beachy bliss is a summer staple and Kenya delivers in scores.
