When it comes to taking a holiday in Africa, there are few more popular experiences than a Kenya safari.
Indeed, people flock to the country in droves for the chance of spotting some of the exotic creatures that roam the nature reserves.
However, as experts in African breaks, here at Africa Travel Resource we know how to see a side to this amazing country where you will feel far away from the well-trodden tourism trail.
If you want to learn this secret or you would simply like to find out more about what Kenya holidays involve, read on.
Experience the original home of safari
Widely acknowledged to be the home of safari, Kenya helped whet the appetite of adventure lovers the world over who were keen to see and do things they would never have the opportunity to experience at home.
Immortalised in books and movies, areas like Masai Mara, Naivasha, Amboseli and Sambura were soon immensely popular holiday destinations.
Perhaps one of its main draws was the fact that visitors had the ability to spend a week or two on traditional Kenya safaris before hitting the country's tropical coastline for a few days' soaking up the sun.
The one downside to this is that some of the safaris have now become a little commercial – but there are still places where you can experience the original charm.
At Africa Travel Resource, we can help plan a trip that sees you spending short periods in the most popular reserves before escaping the crowds to more remote spots where the atmosphere is relaxed and the surroundings unspoilt.
And we can also provide tips on what to do in Masai Mara, which despite being so well-known, we believe still offers you the chance to have a pure safari.
A holiday you will never forget
Safari is undoubtedly one of the most popular activities on offer in Kenya. Born Free and the BBC factual series Big Cat Diary were filmed here and you may even be able to spot some of the prides of lions, leopards and cheetahs documented when you visit.
Masai Mara is also home to the Serengeti Ecosystem, where the great wildebeest and zebra migration takes place.
However, there is so much more to experience here. The colonial estates that sit around the lakes of Naivasha and Nakuru make for a striking sight against the African backdrop, while there is also a great tradition of horse riding in the area.
You will be able to stay in stunning lodges, meet some of the local tribespeople and even take a trip to the Seychelles should you wish.
While it is likely that the most memorable days of your holiday will be the safari, with so much more on offer you will not be disappointed by any part of the package.
