This is the Africa of our dreams. Be it the snow-capped mountains rising from the dry khaki plains, the golden savannah teeming with wildlife or the cerulean-blue Indian Ocean lapping at silent sands, Kenya delights, seduces and bewitches even the most experienced of travellers.

Not surprisingly its primary draw is the safari experience that often begins in the Maasai Mara. Home to the Big Five, the Maasai Mara is also the stage for nature's most remarkable spectacle: the Great Migration. Annually from July to October one million wildebeest, Thomson gazelle, 300,000 Grévy zebra and other game migrate 1,600 kilometres to and from the Serengeti with predators lying in wait. Few experiences can compare to the magnitude and drama of watching millions of animals crashing across the racing Mara River. Beyond the Mara are many other reserves (Laikipia, Samburu, Amboseli and Lewa) where you can walk with Samburu tribesmen, helicopter to the rim of Silale Crate or the top of Ol Lolokwe mountain and see the red elephants of Tsavo.

Kenya's beauty is only matched by the diversity of its people. The Kikuyu, the Swahili, the Turkana, and of course the Maasai and Samburu each have a deep heritage, tradition and history that defines the rich and complex culture of this country. Whatever draws you to Kenya – the candy-floss greater flamingos on Lake Turkana, sailing on a private Dhow off Lamu or ticking off the Big Five from your list – Red Savannah has a tailor-made itinerary for you.
