Kenya Holidays

Kenya, Africa

Kenya has so much to offer

The beaches in Kenya are truly beautiful. From the bustling white sands of Bamburi Beach to the breath-taking tranquillity of Kilifi, this country really is blessed with some of the best beach destinations in the world. With a huge number of water sports and activities available during the day, you may be surprised to learn just how much the resorts come alive at night. But there is far more to Kenya than just beautiful beaches and it offers the visitor a wealth of sights to see away from the tempting shoreline. Due to its all year round warm climate, Kenya also makes the ideal setting for a winter package holiday.

Safari capital of Africa

Kenya is understandably famous for its safari holidays. Boasting some of the most spectacular and varying wildlife in the world, you will be guaranteed to see some unforgettable sights. Kenya is subtropical in climate with low and variable rainfall. Temperatures remain high all year round but are calmed by strong offshore breezes making it a great choice in the British winter months. Northeast Kenya is a flat bush-covered plain, while the rest of the country encompasses beautiful beaches, spectacular highlands and lake regions, and the immense Mount Kenya.

Rich culture and diverse environments

There are many forms of recreation in Kenya, dancing being one of the favoured national pastimes along with a passion for movies and soccer games. There is a lot to do, and one visit is unlikely to be enough to see it all. If your safari (on which you are likely to see elephants, giraffes, zebras, lions, and rhinoceroses) has not satisfied your yearning for fauna, there is also a massive amount of marine wildlife to explore. There are a number of Marine National Parks that provide some of the best snorkelling and dive spots in the world. There is also a wide range of water sports to enjoy.

Kenya weather

Located in the southern hemisphere, Kenya is the direct opposite of European seasons with the summer season running from December through March and winter from July to August. Generally, the hottest time is in February and March and the coldest months are July and August. Due to the reduction of temperature with altitude, temperatures over much of Kenya are subtropical or temperate and almost European in nature. Only the coastal lowlands incorporating Mombasa experience the constant high temperatures and humidity you might expect from an African country. However, regular daytime sea breezes and longer hours of sunshine mean that the heat doesn't become oppressive.
