Our Safaris


The core activity of any African safari is the game drive, best undertaken in an open-sided 4WD vehicle (although this is not the norm in Kenya). At KenyaAway we always try to put together itineraries that have the scope to do more than this. Thus in certain locations you may also be able to undertake walking safaris and night drives, boat trips and the like.

We have tried to group the various activities that can be undertaken during a safari holiday into different sections, as shown below. To find out more information you can either link on from these illustrated panels or simply choose the activity that interests you from the drop-down menu above.

At KenyaAway we will design a safari for you that includes as many of these activities as are of interest to you, either focusing on just one geographical area, or taking in a wide spread of different habitats right across the country. Whether you are a first time safari visitor, a dedicated bird watcher, or someone with a desire to just soak up the sun on a tropical beach, we can cater for your exact requirements.

For more specific assistance regarding any of these activities please call us on 0121 472 1541, or email us using the contact form in the right hand column of this page.


Safari Activities

Most itineraries will revolve around the activities listed here, but with two activities per day at most lodges, you will get plenty of time to sample everything Kenya has to offer.

Game Viewing

The classic safari experience is based around the game-drive - ideally travelling through the bush by 4WD, designed to tackle any terrain and get you to the best viewing location.

Walking and Climbing

Although the opportunities are somewhat limited, Kenya does offer the opportunity for climbing, and also for taking to your feet in the bush on a walking safari.

Boat Trips

Depending on your location, boat cruises - which may take place on a river or a lake - offer a unique way to explore the bush from a different angle.

Night Drives

A great feature of a safari is the ability to take night drives to get sightings of nocturnal wildlife, although in Kenya this facility is only on offer in a few restricted locations.

Family Holidays

A safari can also make for a wonderful family holiday with the correct preparation, and we particularly focus on those planning on taking their children to Africa.

Actvity-based Safaris

Although much of the basic safari activity consists of sitting still in a game viewing vehicle, many people will enjoy exercising themselves rather more than this.

Although Kenya doesn't offer the excitement of Zambia's white-water rafting and bungee jumping (both at Victoria Falls), it does offer some very different opportunities to extend your experiences, such as hot-air ballooning and watersports. Bird watching, fishing and even marathon running also offer the opportunity to be more active and exercise personal skills.

Balloon Safaris

Probably the most amazing way to view Africa's big game - without it even being aware of your presence. It's not cheap, but worth every Kenyan Shilling.

There is no shortage of water sports in Kenya: snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, wind surfing, even white water rafting. Add to that swimming with dolphins, and you’ve got it all.

There is a huge variety of birdlife in Kenya including both native and migratory species.  Many itineraries that are available include unique habitats that put the emphasis on birdwatching.

Although the basic fishing in Kenya cannot match that found on Zambia's renowned Lower Zambezi River, its coastal location does also allow some exciting Game Fishing.

Sporting Activities

If you want to extend yourself physically, Kenya offers a whole range of activities, from golf, through mountain biking and horse riding, to marathon running (watch out for lions, though).

Special Interest Safaris

Although game viewing by vehicle (or, even better, on foot) remains at the core of the 'safari' experience, there are certain activities that require a different outlook and degree of planning - and this is where KenyaAway's expertise most comes into play.

Beach Holidays

Many of our guests opt to extend their safari in Kenya by taking a tropical beach holiday - either on Kenya's Indian Ocean coast, or on the island of Zanzibar.

Cultural Visits

We can arrange for you to visit a local village as part of a traditional safari, or even organise a full cultural tour with the emphasis on meeting and interacting with the local population.
