Where to go on a lodge safari in Kenya

Kenya is one of East Africa’s most famous destinations, having served as the setting for both “Out of Africa” and “Born Free.” It has vast swaths of acacia-dotted savannah, flamingo-filled lakes, and an ideal Indian Ocean coastline dotted with ocean-side hotels. Furthermore, Kenya’s national parks and wildlife reserves are home to a magnificent number of wildlife species as well as migratory birdlife.

Kenya has an excellent selection of luxury lodges and camps that serve as a comfortable base for an action-packed safari. During the day, you can unwind beside a sparkling pool. You can also watch the sunset while sipping a cocktail from the comfort of your private deck. So, whether you want to photograph elephant herds against Mount Kilimanjaro, take part in community tourism in Laikipia or Maasai Mara, or go birdwatching at Lake Nakuru National Park, here’s our insider guide to the best Kenya lodge safaris.


Nairobi serves as Kenya’s capital, and it is a must-see for most visitors to the country’s wildlife reserves. It’s home to the Karen Blixen Museum, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s elephant orphanage, and the Nairobi National Park, where you can see the endangered black rhinos, giraffes, and lions without leaving the city. Add to that some of the best restaurants, trinket markets, and nightlife settings in the country, and truly Nairobi is a city not to be missed.

 Maasai Mara National Reserve

Kenya’s most famous wildlife viewing destination is without a doubt the Maasai Mara National Reserve, which provides breathtaking scenery for the Great Wildebeest Migration. Aside from excellent wildlife encounters, the reserve also offers social interactions with the red-robed Maasai tribe.

Amboseli, as well as the Chyulu Hills

Amboseli National Park, famous for its views of Mount Kilimanjaro, is also one of the best places in East Africa to see large herds of elephants. It covers approximately 400 square kilometers in Kenya’s south, and its sparse vegetation makes it ideal for identifying the occupant giraffes, zebras, and cheetahs. Chyulu Hills National Park is nearby, a scene of old volcanic cones and pits home to buffaloes, Antelopes, elephants, and the bird-filled shores of Lake Jipe.

 Samburu National Reserve

The Samburu National Reserve is located in Kenya’s true heart, rambling along the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro River. Its lush forests and palm groves are home to Grevy’s zebra, cheetah, and Leopards, as well as large herds of Grant’s gazelle, hippos, and Nile crocodiles. It’s a world away from the crowds at some of Kenya’s well-known reserves, and it’s renowned for its peace and genuine encounters with nearby Samburu tribesmen.
