Kenya is a diverse country with a beautiful blend of local African heritage and contemporary luxury. It ranges from rugged arid deserts of the north, to rich fertile valleys in the center which in turn give way to the rolling grassland of the Masai Mara in the South, fishing villages on the shores of Africa’s largest lake (Lake Victoria) in the West, all the way to the white Sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean in the East. Every traveller visiting Kenya will get a unique and fulfilling experience that is full of life and joy.

We look forward to welcoming you and making your stay a memorable experience.
