Kenya Safaris

Kenya – Well dubbed that the concept of the safari holiday experience started in Kenya. This could be true remembering that even the word ‘safari’ itself even stems from the Swahili dialect for ‘journey’. With all these in mind, Kenya safari holidays are no traditional journeys, with wildlife roaming its open plains of grasslands, scale up the majestic snow-capped mountains, indulge yourself in nature contrasts with absolute luxury and adventure combines all too well with a relaxing stay in the beach, wilderness or with a host community.

The combination of diverse culture, wildlife, natural beauty, and value for money has seen Kenya shine spectacularly as one of the best-known safari holiday destinations not only in Africa but also in the world.

The most revered of Africa’s safari destinations, Kenya is Located in East Africa, Kenya is the most revered of Africa’s destinations and boasts the Masai Mara National Reserve. The Mara is arguably renowned for its abundant wildlife throughout the year and phenomenal annual Great Migration that brings the world at its feet during the months of July and October.

Unlike its competing destinations, Kenya brims with charm, romance, adrenaline and adventure. To the best of our knowledge, nothing defines better the old age of vacation like the classic safari fashion of Kenya.

A safari in Kenya isn’t only about the spectacular natural beauty in one of the most unspoiled places on earth, but it also brings you up close and personal with Africa’s most sought-after big and small game alike alongside its warm and ever-welcoming tribes.

At Oluokos Signature, we ensure that your experience is a blend of both luxury accommodation, the finesse of our destinations and the collective expertise of our team. Be it a family holiday, special romantic honeymoon or a special interest safari that’s the magnet to Africa, we are confident that you will enjoy the timeless magical Kenya.

Why Visit Kenya

  1. The best Big Five Spotting – Kenya is easily one of Africa’s greatest wildlife watching destinations, home as it is to the Big Five (African Lion, African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, African Leopard, and White/Black rhinos). You will also be on a responsible safari where the host communities benefit both directly and indirectly from our sustainable tourism programs.
  2. The Greatest Migration on Earth – From mid-July to October, more than a million wildebeest migrate from the plains of Serengeti National Park in the neighboring Tanzania to Kenya’s compact Masai Mara. On the migration trail, hundreds of thousands of Thompson’s Gazelle, Burchell’s Zebra and Eland accompany the Wildebeest. When the timing is perfect, nothing comes close to comparison from witnessing the happening in person the mass movement of animals, lumbering, strutting and swaying in one of the great wonders of the natural world. The wildebeest migration is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles 
  3. Ideal for safari destination first-timers – Coming to Africa for the first time? Kenya is one of the best countries in Africa for those on their first wildlife-watching holiday. With endless safari possibilities that allow you spend a minimum of 4 days to a maximum of over one month on safari. Kenya’s safari industry is backed up by an efficient tourist infrastructure with dazzling choices of luxurious camps, hotels and lodges to suit all taste and budget. After all, Kenya is the origin of safaris. The trending modern safaris were invented back in the Twenties and to date Oluokos Signature still takes you down the memory lane in the most ethical manner.
  4. Big Cats Specialties – The Masai Mara remains to be one of the best places in Africa to encounter big cats. Quietly, Cheetahs and Lions roam the plains, waiting for the wandering game while on the other hand, the leopard has mastered its posing skills in the riverside fig trees waiting to pounce with accuracy to the unnoticing prey under the tree. The Masai Mara cats and other wildlife are so associated with the the BBC’s, Big Cat Diary TV series and this has helped in positioning Kenya in the nature-based tourism.  
  5. The Bush and Beach Experience – Thanks to Kenya’s geography that offers the ultimate combination of both fauna-and-flora spotting odyssey in its dozens spectacular national parks, game reserves and conservancies. It’s very much in style to flop on white sand Indian Ocean beaches. Oluokos Signature recommends a 10-day safari-and-beach itinerary, with the first stop being in the Masai Mara, home to the black rhino, as well as elephant, cheetah, lion, and leopard. We combine this with Amboseli National Park before flying to the beach hotel for a couple of days of relaxation.
  6. Amazing bird life even for the avid ones – With over 1,050 recorded bird species, Kenya is a birders’ magnet. From the flamboyant conglomeration of pink flamingos whose massing makes for surreal photographs. They have been driven from Lake Nakuru in the past half-decade because of industrialization and rising water levels, and many have moved to Lake Bogoria, Lake Magadi and other alkaline lakes within the region. Apart from matchstick-legged birds that can be seen feeding on the algae that gives them their candy floss hue, Kenya birds range from the small but unmissable finches to the bulk Turaco song master of the tree tops, the elegant Secretary bird that catwalks the plains and the bold Ostrich that poses with ease for photography. Also visit Lake Naivasha, home to Golden-winged Sunbirds, and Superb Starlings. Further to Lake Victoria home to African Fish Eagles and numerous specialties in the swamps, you can stretch it further to the new birding frontiers of the Aderema and Katotoi Hills where some of the most sought-after birds can be found. From here find your way back through Kenya’s only rainforest, Kakamega where birding is your ordinary cup of tea – Oluokos Signature runs small group bird watching tours.
  7. Sleeping Under the Stars – Set in a 61,000-acre conservancy, and guests can experience the wilderness by night in private huts open to the skies a 20-minute drive from the main building at the Loisaba Lodge. Beds, which can be wheeled out into the open or taken inside if the weather turns, overlook either a watering hole or a river where there is every chance of catching sight or sound of inquisitive game. 
  8. Mount Kenya Heights – Less well-understood than its Tanzanian twin-sister, Mount Kilimanjaro, and considered a more challenging climb among mountaineers, Mount Kenya sits in its own national park, amid endemic fauna and flora. The highest of three peaks rises to 5,199m, although this requires a technical climb. Even the lowest of its three summits, though, offers astounding panoramas over the plains and savannah below, and as you ascend through the foothills you may spot elephant, black Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Colobus monkey, antelopes and the Giant Forest Hog.
  9. Home to one of the Queen’s favourite hotels – Founded in 1932, Treetops is Kenya’s oldest safari lodge, and the historical part of this is that Princess Elizabeth was in residence here when she was told of the death of her father, King George VI, prompting her ascendency to the throne. “For the first time in the history of the world,” wrote big-game hunter Jim Corbett in the Treetops logbook, “a young girl climbed into the tree as a princess and climbed down as a queen.” Let this history not to pass you.
  10. Kenya’s Pretty Mementoes – Kenyan artists are talented and they make covetable art pieces. Organize for a visit to the Kitengela glass, which is made in the middle of the bush, and products from Ocean Sole, which pays local people to pick up old shoes washed up on the beach and turn them into toys. Also look out for beaded belts and shoes, which are sold across the country. 
  11. Giraffes and the Manor – The famous Giraffe Manor is set in 12 acres of private land in a Nairobi suburb and allows guests to participate in sunset feeding sessions. Expect other impromptu feeding sessions: the herd of Rothschild Giraffes will often poke their heads through the windows of the manor house for extra treats. Get ready, this is Kenya!
  12. Great Rift Valley – Whirlwinds, dust plains, Masai herders, herds of elephant, wide plains and dramatic escarpments all define the Great Rift Valley, which reaches through Kenya as part of a 6,000-km long scar that stretches from Jordan in the Middle East across Africa to Mozambique. All safari operators in Kenya offer a stop-over at the many points of interest on the escarpment.
