Stay in a luxury hotel in Kenya with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to see wild elephants up close and watch scuttling pink crabs disappear into soft beach sand at your feet. Barter in artisan markets for bright baskets and Samburu and Masai bead ornaments to take home.
Luxury city breaks in Kenya
Karen Blixen wrote Out of Africa in her house in Nairobi, at the foot of the blue Ngong Hills. The rooms remain as she left them, with the table laid for dinner and her typewriter still at her desk. Visit the city’s national park to see giraffes and sometimes even rare black rhino silhouetted against the urban skyline. Carved wooden doors of Indian design in Mombasa’s Old Town were first brought to the city by passing Arabic traders.
Luxury beach holidays in Kenya
Snorkel above coral and clownfish in Malindi’s marine park, or hire a boat to try night fishing for broadbill swordfish further offshore. The long white-sand beaches of Watamu National Park lead to vivid underwater coral gardens and the chance for some big-game fishing close to your palm-fringed beachside retreat.
Luxury safari holidays in Kenya
Wake to the sound of tropical birds in a luxuriously furnished tent overlooking the Ewaso N’giro river in the Samburu National Park, and sip a glass of wine by an evening campfire under a wide Kenyan sky. If you’re lucky you’ll see a lion, a cheetah or the elusive leopard on an early-morning game drive, vervet monkeys in the trees or an impala drinking nervously by the river from your private balcony.
Book a luxury Kenya hotel with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to enjoy dinner under the stars in an exclusive safari lodge, or a view of a passing dhow on the Indian Ocean beyond palm trees and wide white sand.
